My Experience with UV Doux Silicone Sunscreen Gel SPF 50 PA+++
The sunscreen comes in a white tube which is packed in the same color outer packaging. The tube has a screw cap to secure the dispensing nozzle. The packaging is very convenient to use and wastage proof.
Colour & Texture
Though it is named a gel, it is of thick fluffy cream. It has a non-irritating silicone compound as the base. The cream once applied on the skin feels thick for a few seconds and then settles into the comfortable matte finish. It is a mineral sunscreen so the titanium dioxide content in it creates a subtle whitish cast on the skin. After sometimes it adjusts to the skin.
It has a very light floral fragrance. The fragrance goes away within 5 minutes of application.
I have photosensitivity so my skin becomes red, itchy, and irritated if my skin gets exposed to the sun for just a few minutes. So, I have to use a high SPF sunscreen. Many of the easily available chemical sunscreens have oxybenzone as the main ingredient. I have a sensitivity to this specific ingredient so I have no other way than using physical sunscreens. These sunscreens leave behind the white cast and this one is not an exception as well. This sunscreen feels very comfortable on the skin and I don’t need to do frequent re-applications as it stays put for long. I just have to apply a thin layer of tinted BB cream over this to hide the white cast.

What I dislike about this sunscreen?

Would I Repurchase or Recommend?
I might not buy it again as it is quite expensive. I love Neutrogena’s sunscreen. I would suggest this to extremely sensitive skin people.
