Lakme Sun Expert Fairness ingredients


Directions to use: Smooth onto face and exposed parts of the skin at least 20minutes before sun exposure.

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.

  • 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
