Makes oily skin greasy

Promotes sweating


My face is oily, but my legs and arms are super dry. I initially bought this Himalaya Herbals Protective Sunscreen Lotion for my face thinking it is a safe and soft sun-protecting lotion.

But when I used it for the first time on my face, it was horrific! My face became oilier than it already was. And I went out looking like that. It made me sweaty and my skin was greasy.

Still, I didn’t want to let the lotion lie on a corner of my dressing table, so the next day, I used it on my legs and arms. I tell you, that was how I should have started. It worked so well on my body. My dry skin felts deeply nourished, and the dry flakiness was long gone.

I am almost done with the bottle, and I am going to get another one. Not for my face, though.

4.7/5

PROS

Does not cause breakouts

Non-sticky

Quickly absorbed

Lightweight

Adds sheen

Subtle sunscreen

CONS

Contains parabens


Himalaya Herbals Protective Sunscreen Lotion is incredibly lightweight. I am a huge fan of Himalaya products as I have experienced many positive effects firsthand. As soon as I apply this lotion on my face, it gets absorbed quickly, leaving behind a subtle sheen. Since my skin is very dry and sensitive, this Himalaya sunscreen works so well on me. My skin starts reacting when I apply harsh products, even more when it contains strong SPF. So, in that way, Himalaya Herbals Protective Sunscreen Lotion is a perfect match for me. My skin feels soft and supple. I strongly suggest other women to try this product if you share my similar skin type.

2.8/5

PROS

Mild fragrance

Pocket-friendly

Decent moisturizer

CONS

Hard to blend

Can leave a white cast


Himalaya Herbals Protective Sunscreen Lotion is an average lotion that gives decent nourishment. The hard part is to blend it. The texture is in between creamy and runny, and it takes a good amount of rubbing to blend it evenly. Otherwise, this lotion leaves a white cast.

2/5

PROS

Affordable

CONS

Contains parabens

Not entirely herbal


I thought it was an all natural lotion. But when I saw the list of ingredients (after purchasing and using it for almost a week), I was so disappointed looking at the list of ingredients. Though it stated ‘inactive ingredients,’ an ingredient is an ingredient. After this bottle runs out, I won’t be purchasing it again.
