Lotus Matte gel susnscreen is now my go to sunscream. I've oily and sensitive skin and most of sunscreen does not suits me as either they gie white cast or they make you sweat or some of them gives me break out. But this gel formula gets easily absorbed in my skin, never gave me break out, gives matte finish, does not make you sweat. I did not see any additional effect on hyper pigmentation or on face glow but I m happy that it performs it's function of sunscreen very well. Although if you use this susncreen in larger quantity and rub your face after applying it starts peeling like a rubber. And also gel formulation of sunscream can be less effective in comparison to cream formulations. But even then I would reccomend this sunscream to all oily and sensitive skin people. It gives a fresh matte look and can be easily applied underneath makeup.

Didnt suit me
1.7/5

PROS

CONS

Not for dry skin

Contains parabens


It absolutely didnt suit me. It leaves that white cast on face that makes the skin loNg so ugly and unclean. Since i have combination skin, it would make my skin very dry and dull. Nor does it lasts too long hence theres a need for re-application every 3-4 hours. And it contains parabens which is extremely hazardous for our skin. Because when these parabens combined with our skin it reaches our blood stream hence combining the chemicals with our blood. Lotus has some really amazing products, but sadly this didnt suit me skin and made my complexion extremely dull and ugly.

Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel claims to give a non sticky matte finish. It also claims to prevent skin from skin tan, sun burn, pre-mature ageing and skin cancer. It contains the extracts of horse chestnut, comfrey and vanilla. The product comes in an orange tube which is sleek. It has an orange flip open cap. The packaging makes it convenient to carry around in a hand bag during travel. The price is affordable. The product is in transparent white color. It has a gel type consistency and it suits normal to oily skin. It had a mild fragrance. Apply generous amount of the product on face, neck and hands. Blend them with fingers. As it is of gel type, it applies smoothly on skin and gets absorbed into skin quickly. It does not make the skin feel heavy and it is non sticky. It gives a soothing and a cooling effect on skin. It gives a matte finish like it said. It absorbs the excess oil and makes skin feel fresh. It does not give a stretchy effect. It can also be used as a base for makeup. One should apply the sunscreen 20 minutes before getting exposed to sun. You have to reapply the sunscreen after 3 hours for maximum protection. It has a SPF 50 which is really good for Indian climate as it blocks a wide spectrum of uv rays from sun. It does not clog pores and doesn't cause any breakouts. It does not form any white casting layer over skin even after a while. It prevents skin tanning. People with dry skin will need an extra moisturizer on using this product. I found Lotus Herbals Safe Sun 3-in-1 Matte-Look Daily SunBlock better than Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel as the the first one had an orange tint in color which made the skin brighter and it gave a sheer coverage for flawless skin even without makeup. But if you are looking for a sunscreen which could be used as a base for makeup then go for Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel.

Isn’t it annoying to see your face bare after sweating, even after you have applied tons of sunscreen? If you are looking for a possible solution to this problem, Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel PA+++ SPF 50 is what you are looking for. At least for me, this sunscreen turned out to be successful. However, it might not work the same for all.

My skin is very oily, so much that after a few minutes of wash, it gets back to its oily state. So that’s why I try my best to stay away from cream-based moisturizers. For oily skin, gel-based formulas are the best!

Ever since I got Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel PA+++ SPF 50, I use it twice a day daily. The gel glides on my skin smoothly and gets absorbed quickly. The packaging of this sunscreen is also very well designed. It is convenient and travel-friendly.

This sunscreen keeps my oiliness away for about four to five hours, which is superb! Like I mentioned earlier, even when I sweat, the layer of protection does not fade off. I think this explains its price. It is a keeper for sure!

Well-nourished skin, matte finish
4.2/5

PROS

Non-greasy

Matte finish

Gel-based

Non-sticky

Penetrates deep into the skin

No white cast

No stretchy feel

CONS

Contains parabens


Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel PA+++ SPF 50 is my savior when it comes to humid weather. My sweat is positively controlled for a good duration. I absolutely adore how it deeply penetrates into my skin, giving me a well-nourished but matte finish. I do have to apply it twice, but that is with every other sunscreen out there.

Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel PA+++ SPF 50 gives me solid results for up to 4-5 hours, which is above average. It is a must have and among the best sunscreens for summers and humid weather.

But, I do have to mention that it contains parabens. So if you are looking for paraben-free sunscreen, you can skip this. For me, the positive results weigh more. In my eight months of use, it hasn’t given me any issues, so I think it is safe to take a risk (smiles).

Waste of money
1/5

PROS

Non-greasy

Mild fragrance

Gel-based

Non-sticky

CONS

Makes the skin stretchy

Expensive

Peels off

Feels rubbery


All my excitement for Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel PA+++ SPF 50 went down the drain from the first use itself. I liked the gel consistency, the mild fragrance, non-greasiness, non-stickiness, and its claims of what not. But after blending it, my skin felt a little stretchy. I let it pass, but again after a while, my skin started feeling rubbery. So, when I just rubbed through my skin, it started peeling off. I just can’t believe this! Ok, if I had dry skin, I would have understood. But this effect on combination skin is something I cannot understand. I wasted so much of my money only to be disappointed!

PROS

Matte finish

A little goes a long way

Controls oiliness

Does not cause any skin problems

Gives a broad spectrum of sun protection

CONS

Expensive


I LOVE this product so much that I’m on my third tube. I use it as a base for my makeup as well. Its claim of mattifying is unlike all the other products I have tried before. Just a small quantity, and I’m set to go. I wish the price were a little low, though.
