Had picked up this sunblock in random while looking for a sunscreen and I have been using this for the past four months now.
Price: INR 195 for 80 ml.
Shelflife: 3 yrs.
This sunblock too comes in orange similar to other sunscreens/sunblock from Lotus. The best part about the packaging is the pump dispenser which makes life so easier while application.
Just spray and spread! You are good to go! 🙂
What the product claims:
Safe Sun Intensive Sunblock Spray provides broad-spectrum UVA & UVB coverage. Its a non-greasy formula that absorbs quickly and provides a fresh & clean feel.
Contains sage, chamomile & thyme extracts as active ingredients. Also contains methyl & propyl paraben.
The way I see it:
The sunblock is a milky – both in color & texture. Yes, the sunblock is runny and comes out as a fine mist from the spray nozzle. This makes the application very easier and less messier.
One can actually see a thin film that it creates on the skin when applied on the hand. Not to worry, it doesn’t look anything dreadful.
It has SPF 50 and the UVA Index is 16 – which is good for the harsh Indian summers.
It did suit my normal-dry skin on the face and one has to be careful with the quantity- since a little more can even cause normal skin to look greasy.
For the neck/hands, I usually prefer to spray this over moisturized skin so that this spreads faster and easy to blend. It gets absorbed into the skin easily.I love the way it makes the skin look glossy upon application 🙂
Easy to carry around packaging, non-messy & compact too. The smell is slightly herbalish but not offending or overpowering.. so every nose will like it!
Overall, I like this sunscreen a lot, though I use it only on my neck & body. I am already on my second bottle and yes a little goes a long way when it comes to the quantity required each time.
The ‘Yes’ factors:
- Available easily
- Pump packaging
- Absorbed easily
- Non-sticky or oily
- Gives a light sheen to the skin
- SPF50 – much suited for harsh summers
- Broad spectrum coverage
- Runny consistency for easy spread/blend
- Competitively priced
- If applied more – appears to be greasy
- Contains parabens
- Boring orange package (tats my personal view)
