How is the week coming along?? Mine is going great so far as I am in the amazing company of my best friend..! 🙂
Although I am on a holiday but I admit that I miss this place like anything and can’t refrain from writing reviews or comments! 🙂
Today’s review is about a sunscreen from Lakme Sun Expert range which I have been using since the start of scorching summers but due to a brief illness I stopped using it for a while but now I am using it again as I have to step out any time of the day here in Mumbai! 🙂

So let’s know about the good and bad things about this sunscreen.

Packaging: The entire products of Sun Expert range are coded to have the same color packaging of deep yellow. Only thing that differs is the shape of the bottle in which they come. This is the typical plastic bottle packaging which is tilted to one side with a flip open cap at the top. The bottle is opaque. Overall packaging is average.
Product Texture: The sunscreen is light yellow in color and has a creamy consistency but actually it doesn’t makes the skin greasy at all, instead it evenly spreads and is absorbed by the skin within few seconds of application.
Fragrance: There is a specific sweet smell of Lakme moisturizer and that is exactly the same fragrance this sunscreen has but it doesn’t stays on like forever. It fades away eventually.
My experience with Lakme Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF 24 & PA++:
This has been a good sunscreen for me this season and I liked the range of protection it offers from the UVA & UVB rays. SPF 24 is appropriate for my normal skin. Earlier, I was using a sunscreen from VLCC and it worked well but during extreme summers, it used to make my skin a little greasy and that was the worst part as I don’t like my skin to look like a frying pan in summers. Well, I finished it off using it mostly on my hands and legs.

When I bought this sunscreen all my problems sorted out as my facial skin absorbed it very well without making it greasy.
I apply it before stepping out in the sun not 20 minutes before but roughly 10-15 minutes before and I don’t feel that the sweating caused by the raising temperature is making my face oily or anything.
The fragrance is okay for me, as it fades soon after absorption it won’t cause any problem for others too!
Currently I am relying upon this sunscreen itself for sun protection & an anti- tan scrub which I will review later and I am glad that these two products are doing well in protecting my skin from the harsh sunrays.
What I like about Lakme Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF 24 & PA++:
- Creamy consistency but not at all greasy
- Economically priced
- Good SPF value of 24
- Light feel formula
- Moisturizing to the skin
- Absorbs quickly
- Non-messy packaging
What I don’t like about Lakme Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF 24 & PA++:
- Has Paraben
Product Rating- 4/5
Will I recommend? Yes, I would definitely recommend it to all those beauties that have normal skin as this is a good sunscreen to opt for the summer season. For sensitive skin & oily skin there are separate sunscreens available in the same range of products.
P.S- I got a small tube of Lakme Clean Up Nourishing Glow Face wash free with this sunscreen:-)
