Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel SPF 50 #Review

The search for a good sunscreen has made me try and experiment with a variety of sunscreens from a multitude of companies but every time I seem to come back to Lotus. I absolutely adore Lotus Herbals Safe Sun 3-In-1 Matte Look Daily Sunblock SPF-40 and am a diligent user. 

When I heard about Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel SPF 50, I was intrigued and ordered it for trial. After using it for almost four months, today I will share my experience with you.

Things I liked about Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel SPF 50:




1) High range of SPF with a SPF 50 protection- Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel offers SPF 50 protection which offers a shield against the harshest of UVA and UVB rays of the sun.


2) It gets easily absorbed by the skin, doesn't leave a whitish tinge and gives a matte finish.



3) Lightly fragranced. It contains extracts of Horse chestnut, comfrey and vanilla which leave a lingering, pleasing fragrance without offending our nose.



4) It is light on the skin and unlike many sunscreens, doesn't leave a thick layer.

5) The matte effect can also act as a makeup base. The face instantly brightens and even without applying makeup it gives a great even toned skin effect, hiding the blemishes and irregularities in colour of the skin.


6) Only a small quantity is required. A pea sized dollop is enough for the face.



7) Gives protection for atleast 2-3 hours.



8) Suits all skin types with no allergic reactions.



9) Is water resistant. I tried it out during my beach outings and even when my face got wet, it stayed put until I scrubbed it off which is great.



10) Protects against tanning, pre-mature aging, skin cancer and sun burn. This sunscreen effectively protected me from tanning and suns burns but you have to re-apply it after 2-3 hours for it to be effective.



11) Has an impressive shelf life of three years from the date of manufacture.






Things I didn't like about Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel SPF 50:



1) Even with a gel based concoction, Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel sunscreen caused me to sweat after application. So if you have oily skin or combination skin that tends to act as oily in summers like me then this sunscreen may cause you to sweat out. I tested it for my beach outings and non-beach outings and every time, my skin got sweaty and more oily as soon as I applied the sunscreen.


2) The orange packing is not very travel friendly because the sunscreen tends to accumulate around the opening of the flip open tube. Also the cap does not close properly.

Conclusion:

All in all, Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel SPF 50 is a sunscreen that I will recommend to people with dry or combination skin who are looking for an effective sunscreen with a higher SPF. It failed in the non-oily finish department because my skin did get oily and sweaty. At 410 INR for 100 gm pack, this is slightly expensive but still a worthy sunscreen available among the hordes of other sunscreens in this price range.
