I guess nobody would step out without a sunscreen. Yes!! Sunscreen is a must for me 365 days; even if it is a lazy day at home. I would like to put my views on my holy grail product that is the Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel SPF-50 from Lotus herbals. Honestly, I have been using it for the past couple of years. I was working in Dubai and the extreme hot climate made me realize the necessity of a good sunscreen those days. My cousin recommended me this sunscreen and I remember buying it in bulk whenever I visited India until it became available in Dubai as well.
About the product: This invisible gel-based Sunscreen offers broad-spectrum protection from harmful UVA & UVB rays. It helps protect skin from premature ageing, pigmentation, discolouration and redness. Infused with the natural goodness of Vanilla, Horse Chestnut & Comfrey, it prevents skin damage by neutralising the free radicals.
The matte-gel texture of this sunscreen gives your face a beautiful matte finish. The lightweight, gel-like formulation of Lotus Safe Sun UV Screen Matte GEL Sunscreen SPF 50 is non-greasy and doesn’t leave any white cast on the face. It spreads evenly and dries quickly to form a transparent film that shields your skin from the harsh sun rays.
Price: Rs. 388

How to use it:
STEP 1: Apply “Safe Sun UV Screen MatteGEL SPF 50 PA+++” liberally on your face, neck and other exposed areas on your body.
STEP 2: It works effectively when applied 15 minutes before going outdoors.
STEP 3: Keep applying once every 2 hours for better protection from UV rays.
Packaging: Lotus Herbals UV Screen Matte Gel Sunblock comes in a perfect orange colored squeeze tube with a flip top cap. The packaging is spill-proof hence travel-friendly. Product related details are printed at the back of the packaging. Overall packaging is pretty decent.
My opinion about the product: It is a transparent white colored gel-based product that has a pleasant smell. The gel has a non-sticky texture and the consistency in neither too runny nor too thick. I take an ample amount of this product and slather all over my face, neck and body. It easily spread on the skin and gives a matte finish once it is absorbed. It feels slightly soothing and cooling on application.
The product is really good for people with oily skin and doesn’t leave a white cast. t controls oil for 2 to 3 hours and has an SPF of 50 with PA+++ and UVA/UVB that prevents skin from tanning. It works well as a moisturizer too especially during summers. In the summer, I tend to sweat profusely, this sunblock gel controls the sweat to a great extent leaving my skin feeling non-greasy and shine-free. The sunscreen can be easily washed off being not water resistant. You need to reapply it every 2 hours when you step out on a sunny day.
It has high SPF of 50 pa +++ along with complete UVA and UVB protection which is perfect for harsh summers.
