Today I’m reviewing one of the most important products in my skin care regime – Lotus Herbals 3-in-1 matte sunscreen.
Price : Rs 295
Quantity : 120 g
What Lotus Herbals says about the product :
3-in-1 daily sunblock is a revolutionary sun protection formulation which combines broad-spectrum UVA & UVB protection with skin lightening ingredients to give a uniform matte finish to the skin. Its fast absorption and non-greasy formula ensures a shine-free, light & clean feel.
Directions for use :
Apply liberally and evenly on face and exposed parts of the body (neck, arms, legs, etc.) before exposure to sun. Re-apply frequently.
Active Ingredients :
Herbal extracts of birch, mallow & hops.
My take on the product
The product comes in a bright orange plastic tube packaging which is quite convenient and hygienic to use. It comes with a flip cap which is sturdy and travel friendly. I always carry this with me and so far it has never opened or spilled in my bag. The only con of this packaging is that a lot of product tends to accumulate around the mouth making it really messy!
The texture of this product is absolutely non–greasy and light unlike other sunscreens. It is slightly tinted and has a sandalwood color. It is exactly as described by the company, spreads easily and absorbs fast to give a non–greasy matte look. Despite giving a matte finish it is not drying. I have recommended this product to almost every person who has asked me for sunscreen recommendation! I know women with dry skin who love this product too!
On days when my skin is feeling very oily , I skip moisturizer and directly apply this and it helps control oil for a while hydrating my skin. It has never broken me out or irritated existing breakouts. It has a decently high SPF as well as UVA protection (PA+++) which gives lasting protection and I generally do not need to reapply. I have not experienced any lightening effect but it definitely prevents my skin from tanning.
I do not use foundation everyday as this gives my skin a finished look. I just top it up with compact and I’m good to go. The product has a light herbal fragrance which I personally find quite soothing.
I am currently on my third tube and one tube will last you roughly around 1.5-2 months (120 g pack)
Highly recommended to everyone!
