My Thoughts about Lakme Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 PA+++ Compact

Talking about this sun protecting compact, I really liked the SPF 40 count because this is surely needed in the summers and you cannot skip using a sunscreen because the damage would be hard to recover!

This compact is specially useful when you are wearing makeup and you need to keep the sun rays blocked from the skin, just apply this sun expert range compact lightly! It will create a layer of sun protection.

It is always better to apply sunscreen while applying makeup but yes sunscreen needs to be re-applied after every 2 hours and so this compact really comes handy because you cannot possibly re-apply sunscreen with your makeup when you are out or at home!

It is also very useful for quick touch-up of the face to absorb excess oil & shine from the skin due to sweating or oily skin issue!

Make sure to go lightly with this compact powder! Do not apply it much because the SPF content makes it look a little whitish after applying on the face and it doesn’t look good at all!

You need to dab a little product and let it settle in few seconds!

I really liked that it is priced economically and can be used daily for sun protection! Personally, I liked the  Lakme 9 To 5 Naturale Finishing Loose Powder more than this!

What I like about Lakme Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 PA+++ Compact?

  • High SPF 40 is really good for skin
  • Universal shade makes it apt to use for everyone
  • Affordable price
  • Soft formulation
  • Absorbs the excess moisture and gives an added sun protection
  • Can be used over makeup
  • Great for quick touch-up
  • Comes with an inbuilt mirror
  • Soft sponge pad applicator

What I don’t like about Lakme Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 40 PA+++ Compact?

  • Don’t over apply as that gives a white cast on the face due to high SPF
  • Takes a while to settle after applying!

Rating: 3.5/5

Will I recommend?: Well, I think it is pretty affordable and apt for daily use but I loved the newly launched Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Finishing Powder more than this! 🙂
