What are my views on it?
I’ve used this for almost 2 years now. It is and it will be the only sunscreen I apply without any compulsions. For years I’ve been trying to find sunscreen cause let’s face it in Mumbai sun kills us every season all year around. We need to apply sunscreen everyday to push away the damage caused by sun-rays. Every other sunscreen gives a white sheen or doesn’t blend well but this is like the hero of sunscreens. It blends well, you can wear it by itself/under makeup/just mattify your skin with thin coat of baby powder( if you don’t want any sort of makeup on you that day but still need some sort of protection). In every way it fulfills your sunscreen needs. It doesn’t rub off with sweat. It seeps into your skin few seconds or may be in a minute after you applying it. I’ve a sensitive skin when it comes up to any skin product but it didn’t give me any sort if problem. Doesn’t irritate your skin/eyes (I mean externally of course :p).
All in all it gives justice to all its claims made.
It comes in 2 sizes 30ml and 88ml tube with Rs.199 and Rs.499 respectively.
You can purchase the small one but according to me try buying the bigger tube as it gives you more quantity. But if you’re unsure just use the small one and then decide how to go about it.
Where can you buy it?
Online and offline(anyplace that sells skin products has this particular product)
How to use it?
You are suppose to take it on your palms and break the product by rubbing in between your palms and then applying it. This helps avoid using too much somewhere or none at few sections. This technique helps with any skincare product.
First as soon as you get out of shower before you start getting ready apply sunscreen as it needs to be applied half an hour before you step out of sun or else you end up tanning more.
For daily wear on face and neck you don’t need more that a pea size amount otherwise it gets little oily and difficult to blend in.
For body I’d suggest mix it with your moisturiser and apply it. By doing this you can apply it equally everywhere.
If you’re a swimmer and need it for that use liberally and reapply it at regular intervals.
If you stay out in sun for long don’t forget to re-apply it.
It like a thick moisturiser but blends well and gives you a healthy sheen.
