  • I must say this works great for oily/combination skin.
  • It gets absorbed so quickly and gives a neat matte look.
  • I feel it can even be used as a make up base.
  • It gives a cooling effect
  • It never made me break out. My skin is very sensitive but this one really suits me
  • I feel it is economical as it costs Rs.195 for 50g which is not bad.
  • I lasts me a month as I use it liberally every 3-4 hours on face ,neck and arms.

Pros of Lotus Herbals UV Screen Matte Gel SPF 50

  • Never made me break out.totally NON OILY
  • Easily absorbed
  • Gives a matte finish instantly
  • Economical

Hi though Rati would give you a better suggestion, I’d say try Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock…its oil free..good for oily skin spf 50+…

I never tried a sunscreen before. I sweat a lot and no cream helps me. I was thinking of using Lakme sunscreen but friends told me it leaves a white patch in the skin..Reading your comments made me think of using Lotus…hope it works for me :)
