How to use:

  • Apply 15 - 20 mins before exposure to the sun
  • Apply on all skin areas that are directly exposed to the sun
  • Re-apply every 3 hours
  • In the case of swimming, sweating - re-apply after 90 minutes

Product experience:

  • The sunscreen is white in color and has a very floral scent.
  • The texture of this sunscreen is thick and creamy and it absorbs pretty quickly. It does leave a bit of white cast on the skin but after blending it properly it fades away.
  • Post application it does looks shiny but after that when it settles down on the skin it gives a matte finish.
  • It is also loaded with questionable fragrances and ingredients as well like the parabens, sulfate, etc which is the reason why I will not repurchase it.

Pros:

  • Affordable
  • Availability
  • Hygienic and travel-friendly packaging
  • Moisturizing
  • Absorbs quickly
  • SPF 30 and PA+++
  • Mild Fragrance

Cons:

  • Leaves a little white cast on the skin
  • Contains harmful ingredients
