My Experience with Plum Chamomile & White Tea Sheer Matte Day Cream SPF 50
Sunscreen is must for every one to take care of their skin by exposure of sun and harmful UVA and UVB rays. My skin gets tanned easily and I have used tons of sunscreen till date. I have used this particular sunscreen for 3 weeks and loving the it has worked for me.
The color of this sunscreen is white and has creamy texture which glides easily. The texture of this beauty reminds me one of my favourite sunscreen Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50. This sunscreen great for oily skin people like me. I apply this 20 minutes before stepping out, It settles into matte finish after 5 minutes of application and It controls sweat to an great extent. It doesn’t give patchy and ashy looking appearance to my oily skin. I have just noticed few drops of sweat on my upper lip area.It prevents Breakout and tan as well.
By judging the formula of the product, I would say these kind of sunscreen should be use in little amount because it might be feel little heavy on skin if use more than required hence not meant for dry skin.
