What should one look for in a good sunscreen?? A good amount of SPF and that Lightweight feel! Lately, my schedule has forced me to shift from my regular Spf 30 to Spf 50 which is perfect if you are exposed to prolonged sun exposure. Thus began the quest for an affordable sunscreen and yet something that would feel Lightweight for everyday use. I came across Lakme Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++ which I grabbed at an online sale and since then it’s been a holy grail!

My Experience With Lakme Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++
Packaging- A very bright sunny yellow colored tube which instantly screams Sunscreeeeeen! I can spot it even if it is buried under a mini mountain of all other tubs and tubes 😛
A flip top cover that shuts nicely and I can easily carry it around.
Texture and Consistency- The sunscreen comes in a stark white color which is not too dense and yet thick enough.
Fragrance- A very faint smell of talcum powder or slightly aqua smell is detected which lingers on for sometime after application and smells pleasant.
Experience- Now what do we want from a good everyday sunscreen? A high SPF (yes for me at least) and Lightweight formula! You just can’t manage things if you go about 9 to 5 with a blankety feeling on your skin- I have this strong urge to just wash my face and feel free. I was looking for a good budget friendly sunscreen with high SPF when this pretty baby came handy. The sunscreen has a matte finish on the application and no shine was detected once it was absorbed through the skin. The formula is what has forced me to finish up the entire tube, its super lightweight and absorbs real quick too. There is a slight white tinge left behind which fades in just a matter of 10-15 mins which is good enough for me. Due to its lightweight formula and Matte finish, it is ideal for summers and for layering makeup too, serves as a good base. I have normal skin and this feels slightly moisturizing to me too and sometimes I feel I can just go out with this and nothing to top it off no setting powder or anything because it mattifies the skin and makes the skin texture smooth. The high SPF makes it a complete winner when it comes to going out for long durations in the sun ☀ and I’m sticking to this one till I find something that beats this ( though the competition is hard I’ll keep searching) 😛
Little quantity is needed to dot the entire face and it spreads nicely without making your skin look like an oil factory 🙂
