Banana Boat Ultra protect SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion

Sunscreen is a thing that cannot be avoided no matter what. If you want to give only one advice to your daughter than it should probably be applying sunscreen, every few hours whether indoors or outdoors and that will be the best advice ever. Gone are the days, when we were ready with excuses that sunscreen makes skin oily , leaves a whitish cast, makes me sweat,etc as today there are loads of varieties from some great brands to choose. Anyways I was bored using lotus sunscreens from the past 2 years, no doubt their sunscreens are really good but was looking for something new.Banana Boat is known for its sunscreens so I went ahead with it. The word Very Water Resistant attracted me towards this one.

My Experience with Banana Boat Ultra protect SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion:

My skin is sensitive and gets red in the sun, also I tan very easily in few minutes , I have extremely oily skin. Since the day I have learnt importance about sunscreens, I do not skip using one. I bought this around six months back and have been using it since then. And I am really satisfied with this one, unlike other sunscreens from them which are thick and greasy this one is a total opposite. They have many variants; this one had 3 variants, SPF 30, 80 and 110. For me SPF 30 is sufficient so I bought this. It comes in a bigger tube of 240ml as well. This one comes in a simple tube with a flip cap; all the details are mentioned on it. The texture is very thin and watery and spreads easily. It is white in color and very lightweight and feels like nothing is applied. The best thing is it gets absorbed within seconds without being greasy, sticky or leaving behind any whitish cast. I am highly impressed with this one.

The finish is natural matte; it does not make my skin absolutely matte or shiny at all, and is moisturizing enough for my oily skin. I have used this one in the hot and humid climate of Mumbai, and I have never tanned with it. Also I tend to sweat when outdoors, if it is really hot, this one protects from that as well as it is water resistant. I have never suffered any breakout due to this one. It lasts for a long time as a little quantity is required for each use.
