Lakme Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF30 PA + Review


Lakme Sun Expert Fairness+ UV Lotion SPF 30 PA+

Hi All,

The minute A posted about the new Lakme Sun Expert Range in February, I was eagerly awaiting the products to be released in the market. So, when I walked into Reliance for my weekly grocery shopping and saw it, it was a no brainer for me and I had to pick it up.

For starters, I do feel that they have tweaked the formula in a very minute way and more or less played around with the packaging. Where the range last year looked more fun, this year, it’s a lot more professional and sleek with an emphasis on style. I got the variant for oily skin especially because in summers, my face gets a little oily and I thought this would be the perfect one for me.

  • Color & Texture – The sunscreen is white and is very light in consistency. Not too runny but not thick and goopy either. I think Lakme has nailed it this time. This formula doesn’t clog my pores and lets my skin breathe without turning it oily.
  • Fragrance – Just all the products in the sun expert range, this also same like the one last year, this also has a citrus scent which is quite pleasant. However, this fragrance doesn’t stay for more than 5mins.

My Verdict:Lakme Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF30 PA +


I quite like using this. Its a light formula unlike few sunscreens that actually make me sweat even more. This gets absorbed really quick and protects my skin from tanning and sunburns which I’m very prone to. I just use this in the morning and then again while getting back home. I haven’t noticed any lightening of my skin though….not that I expected it 😉

    • Totall Ric 🙂

      I cant wait fr ur review…especially on the mask….m excited jut thinking about it! i luv masks 🙂 and one for summers meas its gona be fresh and relaxing 🙂

  3. My first sunscreen was from Lakme and it made my skin oily that I thot Sunscreens are not fr my skin till I found Lotus :dance-left-right:
    Hey wats the nail art Zara it’s so lovely want a tutorial for that

  4. Zara great review m looking for a sunscreeen that dosent break me out do u think this will suit me my skin is very sensitive even applying glycerine with rose water breaks me out so that kind of sensitive .Ur review of the product makes it worth using

    • ooh! if ur skins that sensi?? well, see, my skin is super sensi and the old lakme broke me ut..but this emon grass one doesn’t….but its worth a try…ul never know unless u try diff products..d suggest u to try this or Lotus matte one….Is ur skin oily by any chance? bcoz m also allergic to glycerine.. 🙁

  5. Know Zara the ironic thing is i have dry skin even my skin broke out using the old lakme sunscreen . I M SO FED UP WATEVER I USE MY SKIN BREAKS OUT .Only there is a cream olay age protect it dosent break me out i think coz of the salicylic acid but watever i use i get acne so i always keep clearasil ultra pimple fighting cream ready with me .

  6. Yes i had gone once last year and she had given tufacne(isotretinoin 20mg ) which i continued for 30 days the medicine has some very bad side effects she also prescribed clindamycin gel the acne disappeared and came back within a few months so its like a never ending round and round ,now i just try to use creams that dont break me out by hit and trial method ,gosh i m so fed up Zara

    • i can imagine ya…i can understand how frustrating it must be..i went thru a similar thing when i was in my teens..but it faded by the time i hit 21-22….thank god for the time all i cud use is pears ornang wala face wash and vicco on the face.. hehe..

  7. lakme sunscreens.. i donno they never work on me… and yep make me feel greasy too.. presently luving neutrogena & lotus sunblocks 🙂
    good to know tat it worked for u Z…

    • thanx Rev..i too use lakme with alot o doubts…but eversince this lemongrass range came into d picture m loving lakme sunscreen alot 🙂

      which neutrogena sunscreen do u use?

  8. i had used gel face wash last year. it is ok not bad.
    i had their sample pack of 15ml sunscreen spf 30 for oily skin which goes on matte after application.
    but it didn’t prevent tanning.
    i now rely on lotus sunblock spray and biotique red sandalwood lotion.
