Lotus herbals 3-in-1 Sunblock Review

Hello All, today I am going to share with you ideas for how to keep our skin young and glowing
After all Precaution is better than cure right?
Do you guys know the sun is the major cause of wrinkles?
Yes, it is.
Why do we need to wear sunscreen?
Sunrays have UVA and UVB rays
UVA rays-
·       Damages inner lying cells and major cause of premature aging. 90% of wrinkles are caused by the sun (Ugh…!).
·       It also has melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma, two types of skin cancer cells
UVB rays-
·       This causes sunburns and tanning.
So to have a glowing and young skin we need to have a sunscreen no matter whether you are a boy or girl.
How to choose a sunscreen depends upon how long you are going to be exposed to the sun. Even on a cloudy day, you need to wear sunscreen as UVA\UVB can penetrate through clouds.
SPF-Sun Protection Factor it is. This protects you from UVB (You don’t get a tan and no to sunburns). While buying a sunscreen see whether it has a minimum of SPF 15, because it can protect your skin for 150 minutes (2 hour and 30 mins). Going for SPF 30 can protect your skin for 300mins (5hr).
PA+- Protection Grade of UVA (PA) this gives protection against UVA rays (You are safe from wrinkles and skin cancer). The more the +’s the more you are safe from sun. Chemicals which give us these are avobenzone, oxybenzone, mexoryl, zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.
Talking about the product, I opted for
LOTUS HERBALS 3-in-1 MATTE LOOK DAILY SUNBLOCK.

The Product claims to give

  • Sun Protection
  • Skin Lightening
  • Mattifying
I opted for this because it has SPF 40 and PA+++.

   How to Use:

Apply liberally and evenly on face and exposed parts of the body (neck, arms, legs, etc.) before exposure to sun. Re-apply frequently.

 Ingredients:

Water, talcum, kaolin light, glycerine, polyacrylamideC13-14 Isoparaffin laureth-7, oxybenzoene,octyl methoxy cinnamate, titanium dioxide, butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane, isopropyl myristare,cyclopentasiloxane, elcosene, copolymer, fumed silica, 2- phenoxyethanol, methyl paraben, propyl paraben, methylchloroisothiazolinone and methylisothiazolinone, red iron oxide, yellow iron oxide, fragrance.


My personal views about this product:

  • SPF 40 & P+++-It has everything a good sunscreen should have Jthis one protects us from both UVA & UVB rays.
  • Hygienic Packaging- It comes in orange tube with a flip-flop cap. Flip cap is sturdy and travel friendly
  • Fragrance-It has a mild fragrance similar to fair ever (if you have ever used). It lasts only till the applying stage. After which there is no fragrance.
  • Consistency- It has very thin and flowing consistency which goes matte on blending. It is non-greasy and non-sticky.
  • Since I have combination skin, I prefer matte ones. It is not heavy or thick, which is a surprise for a matte sun block though..!
  • Finish-It gives a matte finish. Hence, people with dry skin need to moisturize their face before applying. It’s a boon for oily skin beauties out there. It does not leave a white cast. Since it is tinted (Sandal wood colour), it gives a sheer coverage so ladies out there can go with this product for a daily wear.
  • Price-It comes in 2 quantities, 50g and 100g.I got this in 100g which is priced Rs.345.

What I think could have been better:

  • Price is not bad yet if it’s lessened a little then it’s great.
  • The Only draw bag is that the product tends to get accumulated near the mouth of the tube :).

       Where did I get this product:

  • www.amazon.in
  • I recommend you all to purchase a (this) sunscreen to keep your skin young and live :).
  • Guys I am currently reading THE CUCKOO’S CALLING novel…so far so good:). If you guys know any good novel, share it with me. I would love to hear from you. That’s all for now catch you guys soon.
