Lakme Sun Expert Cucumber & Lemon Grass SPF 50 PA+++ Review


Lakme Sun Expert Cucumber & Lemon Grass Sunscreen SPF 50 PA++

There have been a lot of questions about sunscreens and their SPF nowadays.Few of the readers who have consulted dermatologists have told me that sunscreen above SPF 30+ should mostly be used by those who are into sports otherwise SPF 30 ++ is more than enough for daily use. I am yet to check on that but as it has created doubts in my mind and I started using  this cream when I go for my badminton classes .For daily use I was using Lakme Sun Expert fairness sunscreen Body  lotion and Lakme Sun Expert Fairness Sunscreen for oily skin

SPF 50 ++ is meant for normal to dry skin so I was initially worried and on top of it the texture of the product was thick for my skin. It did take a while in getting absorbed into my skin however just a tiny drop covered whole of my face.

My experience with Lakme Sun Expert Cucumber & Lemon Grass SPF 50 PA ++

Lakme had already mentioned it that this high SPF is for those who are into sports and when I used it while playing it made me feel greasy. This is because I have oily skin and when I sweat with this sunscreen it becomes a mess. I gave the sunscreen to my friend while playing and she was impressed by it because she has super dry skin.

It is a thick sunscreen and it leaves a white cast on my skin which becomes difficult to blend also.

I don’t know if you can see it but it becomes whitish and make my skin little dark too because of the white cast when  I apply it.

Will I recommend it to others – I have oily skin so it doesn’t suit me at all.I will recommend this sunscreen to my friends who have normal to dry skin. Leaving beside the white cast part, it has everything nice. It didn’t even break out my oily skin .It is a bit pricey but one bottle lasts long.

If any dry skin girl have used it then please do drop in your experience.I won’t rate the product as it was not meant for a skin like mine.
