Lotus Herbals Intensive Sunblock Spray SPF 50 comes in an orange colored bottle with a pump dispenser which is very convenient to use and carry. This sunscreen is very flowy in consistency and is water based. You have to pump the dispenser and get the sunscreen out on your hands basically on your fingers and then massage it on your face. It gets absorbed easily though you need to spare an extra minute in massaging it properly. It does not leave a white cast like all other sunscreens but ya it does feel a bit greasy so it may not suit oily skin even though it says it is for all skin types.
It doesn’t breaks me out thankfully which I’m usually prone to with sunscreens. Due to its flowy consistency, it may get in through your fingers to the back of your hands and to the sleeves of your clothes which can be a bit messy sometimes especially for people like me who hate when their sleeves get wet or dirty with something so you have to be careful to pump only the amount needed and not get it all on your hands which can be a bit tacky to handle due to its liquid consistency. You also have to be careful not to pump the liquid on to the mirror as it may happen sometimes that you think you are pumping it onto your hands and it gets sprayed on your mirror by turning its side and you invite your mother unexpectedly to get mad on you :-P (my mother gets so angry on me when our mirror is dirty, she’ll be like- you know only how to see the mirror all day and don’t know how to keep it clean and if not cleaning it, you can just make it a mess, blah blah and blah) my mom is always after me for something or the other. Because of the SPF 50, I can stay in the sunlight without fearing of getting tanned and with UVA protection I can be assured that I don’t get easily prone to wrinkles though I’m very keen on applying it after every 2-3 hours even if I’m not under the direct sunlight but I reapply sunscreens because I’m always working on laptop or my computer for my blog which also emits rays as harmful as sun rays, so sunscreen application and re-application is a must for me. Now let’s sum up the cons and pros of this sunscreen..
