Shahnaz Forever Sun Protective Cream SPF 40 Review

  • How to use – apply 20 mins before sun exposure
  • My experience: I have a bitter history of sunscreens and this one was another long chapter in it. Most of the tall claims have proved false. Still to be rational here are few pros:

Thick consistency

What I like about Shahnaz  Hussain  Forever SPF40


  • So many awesome ingredients (cos of which I bought this)
  • Reasonable price
  • Not oily. Gives a dry finish.


What I do not like about Shahnaz Hussain Forever SPF 40


  • Leaves white cast. I have to rub and rub and rub it still no result. Ultimately I wipe white cast off with a napkin.
  • So thick. it just sits on top of my skin.
  • Contains parabens

Verdict: I totally hate it. I know it sounds very harsh. But yeah…. I used it once on my face and had to wash my face immediately as I looked as if climbed out of a white powder drum. Then I thought of using it on hands and feet. But now tired of rubbing for 10 mins. So it was a total waste for me

  1. I had tried this…but thankfully it was a tiny sample bottle which was being distributed when this was released…horrible…The whitecast is uber-sick!!

  2. i used this …………and this is one of the worst sunscreens…………..it puts white cast so much on skin…………….i was very much disappointed thinking this………shehnaz product may be such???????????

  3. i am fully with you anu. i bought one tube in April because of the
    name “Shahnaz”. but i am thoroughly disappointed. anyways, i am using
    it on my hands and feet.

  4. I have the same thing in SPF 20. I love the smell and find it very easy to apply. It gets absorbed also soon.

    The only thing I didn’t like is that it was meant for normal to dry skin and since I have oily skin, it makes my skin look oily fast. but nothing a compact can’t fix.

  5. Hey A..Temme something quick na…which neutrogena sunscreen shud i go for? ill b goin out soon and i can pick it up hopefully..

                    • yeps..ive realised the merits to reading reviews b4 heading to buy something…really helps me since m more of an impulsive buyer…keeps me more in control..i think.. :kissblow:

  6. I used this just once and I hated it so much that I took a chance in returning the product to the shop and I was successful 🙂 and since then I have hated Shehnaz products…

  7. it was in Katwaria or something with that name na which is pretty famous also..it has a branch in Abids and Secunderabad…starts with a ‘K’…I hated it so much that I returned it and anyways it was a tube so no hygiene problem too 🙂 sometimes I do take a chance!!!

  8. oh God I also have the same exp with Shahnaz sunscreen… whenever I use it I get a complement for my hubby .. oh looking like bhutni…. 😯 I need to wash everytime I use it….will never try . Even i mix it with moisturizer the result is same .. white cement… truly said… why didnt I read here before buying a big bottle of it..
