Lotus Herbals Daily Multi-Functional Sun Block SPF 70

Hello IMBB!!!

In spite of me not believing the hype of more the SPF, the better the sun protection, I was lured into buying the latest offering from Lotus Herbals, the “Lotus Herbals Daily Multi-Functional Sun Block SPF 70.”

Lotus Herbals Daily Multi-Functional Sun Block SPF 70


Rs. 495 for 60 g (Rs. 346 on medplusbeauty.com).


Comes in a vibrant orange (standard Lotus colour) box with flip open plastic tube.


Product Description and Ingredients:


My Experience with Lotus Herbals Daily Multi-Functional Sun Block SPF 70:

Comparing it with Lotus Herbals Sun Block with SPF 40; smell, its mildly fragrant, quite an improvement over the medicinal smell of the 3-in-1 matte sunscreen.

Swatch 1

Texture is neither runny nor thick, both are similar.  The colour of SPF 70 is lighter than that of SPF 40 Lotus Sunscreen.  Both the sunscreens take 20 seconds to blend.

Swatch 2

Swatch 5

Again coverage is similar, but SPF 70 feels slightly lighter on the skin and of course its pleasant fragrance is way better!!


Honestly speaking, I don’t spend a lot of time out in the sun because I tan very easily.  Both SPF 40 and SPF 70 gave me the same kind of excellent sun protection for the time that I was out in the sun (20 minutes).

Pros of Lotus Herbals Daily Multi-Functional Sun Block SPF 70:

  • Light moisturizer, oil free.
  • Great fragrance, mild and pleasant. Even a sensitive nose like mine approved the smell.
  • Did not break me out.
  • Very good sun protection!! Prevents brown spots and tanning like any good sunscreen should.
  • Preservative and paraben free.
  • Has carrot and avocado extracts.
  • Matte but not too matte (you know what I mean)!! When I use a good moisturizer below, it actually gives a beautiful dewy look.
  • Sheer coverage, perfect for every day office look for beauties blessed with a good skin.
  • Really lightweight, feels nice and cool on applying.

Thanx for the review Sneha, i have the spf 90 and was looking for this review? btw I read this particular one cast a whitish layer on some people..is it true.I didn’t have any such problem with the spf 90, and it actually blended well with my skin tone and yes it’s mattefying !


sneha April 17, 2012 at 9:12 pm

hey sukanya!!! read your article!!! gr8 review :yes: :yes: .. and you are right about the SPF stuff!!! :haanji: :haanji: :haanji: SPF 50 is the best protection required by us… :specs: :specs: the spf 70 left absolutely no white cast on me.. blended like a dream on my skin.. its smoother and lighter than SPF 40 , both in colour and texture… suits fair to medium skin tones.. not sure about its performance on lovely dusky beauties :specs: :specs:


bidisha April 18, 2012 at 11:18 am

it left a whitecast on my skin…my complexion is medium..but hands are darker…so it looked whitish on me :(

Hi Mitali

I am currently using Lotus SPF 50 spray bottle, its lighter and get absorbed easily as compared to their SPF 30 sunscreen as i have purchased this bottle after reading its review on IMBB. but still i am more inclined for SPF 40 3in1 matte look as it gives a clean & fresh feeling :makeup: :makeup: :makeup:

Hey sneha…good review..was waiting to try it…Thanks… :happydance:


sneha April 17, 2012 at 9:31 pm

do try!!! its so worth trying!!! bet be aware that 100g spf 40 costs 325 and 100g SPF 70 would have been Rs 825… difference of rs 500 :scream: :scream: :scream: its a gr8 product, but not THAT much gr8 to merit the sky high price!!!


Ragini April 17, 2012 at 10:09 pm

I was waiting for a review of this product. 😀 Thanks, Sneha! :woot: :woot: I used 3-in-1 Matte sunblock but it broke me out. :yuck: :yuck: I am going to try this. I hope this will work for me considering it’s lighter. :preen:


Shami April 18, 2012 at 12:00 pm

:high5: :high5: :high5: JW, it broke me out too, i think we are allergic to the ingredients of it.. many ppl just love SPF 40, me jealous :green: :green: :green: :green:
but protection wise SPF 40 is the best


Jabberwocky April 18, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Yeah, perhaps it’s the ingredients which are causing the problem. :spank: :spank: :spank: Anyhoo, I hope the SPF 70 proves as good as the SPF 40 is supposed to be. :toothygrin:


sneha April 18, 2012 at 7:45 pm
