We had a very long harsh summer this time in California and the temperatures were so high compared to past 5 years and i was very worried about my skin. So it was time to invest in high SPF lotion. I have been using couple of other sunscreen brands but they always leave my skin look greasy and leave a white cast so this time i made sure i choose a good product which doesn’t look greasy and doesn’t cause breakouts because i have a sensitive skin. I wanted a sunscreen with very high SPF because i love outdoor activities like swimming and running and i don’t want my skin to tan much.
I saw this sunscreen lotion in my supermarket the other day and was very excited and i thought of giving it a try because all the ingredients looked organic and also it says it specifically blocks UVA and UVB Rays and also moisturizes well.

My experience with Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 70:
Last time during summer my skin was heavily tanned ,and it took me almost an year to come back to my original color after applying curd,rice powder and multani mitti. I’m a medium fair person and i do tan easily. So this time i made sure i take necessary precautions to avoid sunburn and skin tanning. This sunscreen lotion has a light weight texture and blends well into the skin and makes skin look so smooth that you never feel that you are wearing a sunscreen. It stays for almost 2 hours (Reapply after 1 hour).
It contains avobenzone which provides UVA and UVB screening so you need not worry about anti aging. It doesn’t feel sticky and heavy and is oil free.
The packaging comes in a sturdy plastic tube with plastic top and is sleek and it can easily fit into our handbags. In spite of heavy sweating the sunscreen never dripped off from my skin so i assure you that you can use it while swimming because it is waterproof.
What I like about Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 70:

- It needs a proper makeup remover because it is waterproof and it might clog your pores from leftover residue.

- Rating:4/5 .
- Final Verdict:Yes.
- Price:$10.99 for 3 oz.It’s available at $6.49 on Amazon here
