My Experience with L’Oreal Invisible Protect Clear Cool SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion
From my personal experience, I can really say that this is one of the most effective sunscreens out there. I had it applied before going out to the beach and reapplied it every 2 hrs for the entire duration I was under the sun. Thankfully I had no problem at all. No tanning, no redness nothing. However, I used a different sunscreen on my face and used this over my body. The only problem I have with this so far is it’s very very strong alcoholic smell. Hence I was reluctant to use it on my face. Besides all this, the lotion is exactly how it’s described. It makes your skin feel really cool’ the get based lotion starts chipping of on rubbing. Hence under the vigorous sun, it’s my advice to apply it every hour.

Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?
Yes. Even though it’s got some disadvantages I recommend it to be used on the body & not face. Since at this price it really gives a very effective sunblock I don’t mind buying it again. However, I would urge others to apply a better sunscreen on the face and still cover it with a huge cap and try and stay in shade.
