Lakme Sun expert Fairness + UV Lotion Review
Sunscreen is an essential for us be it any weather and I’m constantly on a hunt for some good picks. Today’s review is about a sun protect lotion by Lakme. I have never tried Lakme skincare as I’ve always preferred my staples for skincare. Read on to know more about how this fared for me!
Price: It is priced at INR 190 for 60ml, it also comes in a 160ml bottle
Package Description: This comes in a yellow packaging which is slim and has a flip open cap. The packaging is quite sturdy, sleek and travel friendly and I love the bright yellow colour!
Product Details: The texture of this product is smooth, lightweight and consistency is neither too thick nor runny. It has a fresh scent that lingers for a long time on the skin. I love the scent, it’s invigorating and refreshing.
My experience with the product: I was always on a look out for a good sunscreen as I never find one that suits my skin perfectly. Honestly, Lakme products have never worked for me but I still got this one to try out. This is by far one of the best sunscreens I have tried till now. It is affordable and is very lightweight, feels like you have nothing on the skin and yet is decently moisturizing. I’ve been using this sunscreen daily and I don’t need to use a moisturizer separately, this takes care of the dryness quite well. Also, this blends well into the skin and does not leave a whitish cast (as most sunscreens do). This is however best suited on the body and not the face since it’s a body lotion.
The only drawback about this is it has an SPF of 24 which is very less and with the current climatic conditions ideally an SPF of at least 30 is recommended. So on days when I’m indoors I use just this but when I’m out in the sun for long I follow up with a spray/alternate sunscreen. Also, I wish it hadn’t been marketed as a ‘fairness’ lotion since that is misleading. Nevertheless, I still use it every-day!
Hits – Lakme Sun expert Fairness + UV Lotion
- Sturdy, travel-friendly packaging
- Affordable and easily available
- Blends into the skin easily
- Doesn’t leave a whitish cast on the skin
Misses – Lakme Sun expert Fairness + UV Lotion
- Not a high SPF value
- Misleading claims (‘fairness’ lotion)
Overall Verdict: Overall, I think this is a really good pick on days when you don’t want to go out in the sun for long as this isn’t heavy on the skin. I’m definitely going to repurchase the bigger bottle, though I wish they had a 500ml packaging with a pump (would’ve been cheaper). Highly recommend this sunscreen to everyone!
