How many of you have despaired going out during the day in summer season and come back 4 shades darker? I, for one, have hated it like crazy, and truthfully speaking, nothing really helps coming back from spending time in the sun all itchy and sticky and dirty. But I have my defense set up. A simple sunblock works for me.
Price and Quantity:
Rs.225 for 50 g
The packaging is a standard Lotus one – shocking orange with a flip top to keep everything hygienic. I carry it around a lot and it does not leak or drip at all. That apart, the texture of this product is runny and it is like a tinted moisturizer. One of the reasons why I absolutely love it is because it gives my skin an instantly even texture and removes excess oils, making my skin look instantly fresh and clean. It is slightly chalky if not blended in properly, so make sure to thoroughly blend it in. It takes a minute to get fully blended in, but it immediately makes the face look more even-toned.
The scent of this product is very pleasant, like sandalwood, which is my favorite, and at times I use this purely for the scent itself. If you are one of those people who love a multi-tasking product, you would love this one. Acting as makeup base, sunblock and mattifying agent, this product makes sure your skin does not look oily and sticky. It stays for hours and makes sure your makeup stays put. I generally put this on before putting on my makeup, and I instantly see my face look fresh and clean. I have also seen that it has a very soothing effect on my sensitive combination skin, and does not break me out at all.
The lasting power of this one is about 2-3 hours in the sun, after which you must reapply it for it to work. It is great for those who are office goers and for those going to college as it works as a great beauty beginners’ product. It is slightly pale on girls under NC 45 skin tone, so you have to blend it in properly. Otherwise, a fantastic product for its price, and something I have seen all skin types use without any issue. Dry skinned girls, like my sister, love this as well.
