I am not a sunscreen person as my skin doesn’t tan or burn easily. Well I use it anyway because I don’t want to look like I am 50 by the time I get to 30. Lakme Sun Expert Fairness+UV lotion protects against both UVA and UVB rays.
The packaging of the sunscreen is chic and attractive. It comes in a bright yellow sleek stylish bottle with a flip top cap which is quite tight and be easily carried around in a purse without any fear of spillage. The sunscreen itself is off white in color.
The texture of the sunscreen is neither very thick nor very runny. It feels light on my oily skin and doesn’t feel greasy or sweaty. It does not take too much time to get absorbed and gives a slight dewy effect on my skin after some time. It does give a whitish cast when applied in large quantity so i usually mix moisturizer with sunscreen to fix this problem. Irrespective of my skin being oily I feel the need to use a separate moisturizer. The smell of the sunscreen is mild and pleasant.
Although the sunscreen feels very light on my skin it tends to get oily after 5-6 hours and I need to reapply it. My skin didn’t get tanned after using this but if you are going to be exposed to sun rays for a longer time frame you need to reapply it regularly to avoid getting tanned badly.
