Lakme Sun Expert Uv Lotion SPF PA+++ is a broad-spectrum sunscreen. A broad-spectrum sunscreen protects us from UVA rays which causes ageing and UVB rays which cause tanning. PA+++ offers best protection than ++ or +. Now the Lakme sunscreen has spf 50, it is lightweight, non sticky and non greasy. I have kind of oily skin and I have used a lot of sunscreens, but most sunscreens are greasy so my face looked more oily. In search for a non greasy one I came across this sunscreen and I am really impressed with the formula. It is gel based and really gives a matte effect and doesn’t feel greasy at all. It needs reapplication every 3-4 hours according to the packaging. I would suggest waiting for 30 minutes after applying before going out in the sun. Overall it is a really nice sunscreen especially for oily skin girls looking for a matte sunscreen cause we all need something like this in our bags doesn’t it. It comes in a travel friendly tube, however the mouth can get a little messy but that can be cleaned really easily with a wipe. It costs Rs.250 for 50ml of product which is quite affordable too.

Melts with the sweat


I’ve recently realised how important it is to wear an SPF! And after a lot of research a good pocket friendly sunscreen I found was this one. It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and makes it a tone brighter. But if you have a sweaty forehead or face, I wouldn’t recommend it to you.

Good product. Must try but it's quite overpriced it can be made a little more affordable. But if goes in mouth it tastes not good. A little sticky but with powder it's good.

Lakme sun expert is an awesome sunscreen lotion for any normal to dry skin, but it does not suit to oily skin at all. The moment I apply this sunscreen lotion I start sweating more, as such I have given a splash of water on my face. Moreover, I start getting itching and irritation on my skin. Even after washing my face, it takes some time to normalize my skin from itching and irritation. On the other hand, when my sister who has dry skin, applied this sunscreen she felt nothing as such. According to her opinion, this sunscreen works really best in comparison to any other sunscreen lotions or cream. It stays for nearly 2 hours, and after that one has to re-apply this sunscreen after washing her face. This sunscreen is not water-proof. Due to the presence of SPF50 and PA+++, it protects from maximum harmful UVB rays. The packaging is good and travel-friendly. Its flip-cap prevents leakage or any wastage. The consistency of this sunscreen lotion just like any other lotions, which is smooth and a bit of runny so that this lotion can get easily absorbed by the skin. It is a lightweight product and dermatologist tested too. Although, this sunscreen costs Rs 250 for a 50ml pack if anyone is looking out for some discounts then go for online purchase. As it did not suit my oily skin, hence I handed this product to my sister and she is using it on a daily basis. According to her experience, her skin is now no more tanned, despite being out during the peak humid hours of the day. She is really happy and satisfied with this product and on the basis of her opinion, I will recommend it to all, excluding oily skin and sensitive skin people.

Makes skin greasier under hot climate


Like other beauty products Lakme has come up with the sunscreen. Sunscreen is one among the essential beauty product. We tend to get tan and lose our complexion when we go out during daytime under the sun. Some of the beauty products available in market has the properties of sunscreen in it while others don't. It is hard to keep looking for a foundation or concealer which has sunscreen. It is good to have one in handy so that you could use it when you don't need a foundation or concealer. Like you all know, India's climate is mostly hot and the sun rays are harmful to skin. Lakme Sun Expert UV Lotion SPF 50 claims to protect our skin from up to 97% of the sun’s rays. It also claim to prevent us from tanning and premature aging by maintaining our original skin tone. Lakme Sun Expert UV Lotion SPF 50 comes in a yellow tube form. It has a yellow flip type cap. The cap closes well avoiding leakage and the product is travel friendly. You have to reapply the product for every 3-4 hours under exposure of sun to protect skin from damage. The price is affordable. Lakme Sun Expert UV Lotion SPF 50 has a gel type consistency. It is white in color. It is meant for people with dry to normal skin. And it doesn't suit people with oily skin as it tends to get greasy after a while and it also reduces the staying power of makeup. The sunscreen is smooth to apply. Apply dots of the product on skin and blend them with fingers, 20 minutes before sun's exposure. It gets absorbed into the skin instantly. It sometimes leaves a white casting layer in a very hot climate. Even though you blend it it into the skin, if you sweat under hot climatic condition, the skin becomes slimy. It has a fragrance which lasts for a while. It doesn't feel heavy on skin and it hydrates the skin well which is ideal for normal to dry skin people. I don't think it prevents tanning. The product claims to be a Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, so it doesn't cause any allergies and does not clog pores causing pimples. It prevents a wide spectrum of harmful uv rays which is the only good thing I found.

Non-sticky

Moisturizes wll

Does not cause acne or pimples

Non-comedogenic

CONS

Fairness claims not true


Whenever I buy any new product for my face, I always look out for sun protection. Why? Because I consider a sunblock to be an essential routine in a skin care routine.

I am very keen to be writing about this Lakme Sun Expert UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++.

It has been three weeks of me using it.
I use it every day, even as a base for my makeup.

My dry skin is well moisturized and protected from all the toxins of the sun as well as the environment. I won’t say this is the best, but Lakme Sun Expert UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++ is definitely one of the good ones.

It comes in two different sizes. I carry the small one in my handbag for ‘just in case’ situations. It is sturdy and travel-friendly.

Lakme Sun Expert UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++ is a good option for a good moisturization and sun protection.

Packaging can lead to confusion
2/5

PROS

Range of variants available

CONS

Similar packaging leads to confusion


While looking for a good sunscreen, I read a review about this lotion and was very impressed. So I thought to get one for myself. When I started applying, only after a week or so I got to know that I was using an entirely different lotion. I have oily skin, but I was using a lotion that is meant for dry skin!

Lakme Sun Expert UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++ might be a good lotion, but be careful because it all looks similar! There is one for normal to dry skin, another for all skin types, light and non-sticky, etc. I wasn’t aware, so I ended up getting an unsuitable lotion for my oily skin.

I am using this sunscreen for the past one year, and it has never disappointed me.

As I live in Mumbai and the weather out here is always hot even during winters, I always apply sunscreen before going out. I love how it moisturizes my skin and gives a hint of glow. Till date, it hasn’t given me any skin problem, so this is my go to!

Works well but needs reapplication
3.9/5

PROS

Non-greasy

Paraben-free

Quickly absorbed

Highly pigmented

Has SPF 50 PA+++

CONS

Reapplication is needed

Effect fades off


Lakme Sun Expert UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++ is highly pigmented and has a creamy consistency, but it doesn’t make my skin greasy at all. Instead, it spreads evenly and gets absorbed into the skin within few seconds of application.

There is a specific sweet smell that fades off after application. I have to use it twice a day because I feel like it does not stay on for the whole day. So at around afternoon, I apply it again. So far, it works for my dry and sometimes combination skin very well.

Jhanvi SinghJanuary 23, 2019

It is a sun protection lotion. Though there haven’t been any reports of it causing acne and pimples, this lotion isn’t designed to treat acne and pimples. But as it is non-comedogenic, it does help in not clogging pores.

Kalpana RaiJanuary 21, 2019

If you have dry skin, then yes, it can be used. But don’t expect this lotion to work as a primer. Oily skin types can skip it as it will be heavy and instead of holding the makeup together, it will reduce its staying power.
