My Experience with Lakme Sun Expert UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++:

As stated, the experience was horrible. The pack says “Suits Normal to Dry skin” but truly it suits “oily skin” the best. So according to my sister, this made her skin control excess oil and sweat. Her skin felt shine free. The lotion got fully absorbed within a minute, feeling very light on skin with no stickiness. It did save her from sun-burns and darkening of skin.

Packaging: Lakme Sun Expert UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++ comes in a yellow colored cardboard outer packaging and yellow inner tube. The product comes out from a long nozzle shaped mouth that ejaculates enough lotion required for face and neck. It has a screw top opening which is very tight. All in all, the packaging is very travel-friendly.

Color: The lotion is matte white in color, but when spread subtle shimmers can be seen somewhere.

Smell: The smell is somewhat weird. Apart from having ingredients like the Lemon Grass and Cucumber, the lotion smells of chemicals and I just hate it.

Texture: The texture is very heavy and is difficult to spread. It takes 2-3 minutes to get absorbed but leaves a whitish cast behind that I hate. I have Normal to dry skin, so thought that it may suit my sister’s oily skin and oh yes! It did suit her well and made her T-Zone shine free.

    Pls reply i took this cream, but i don’t no how to use this & what is the benefits to face.

    • Arzoo says:

      It does not have any benefit for face except for preventing your face from any sun damage. You can use it as any other cream by rubbing it on your face every morning after washing your face.

      • Bhavna Basera says:
