Skin Type: Normal to Dry
Skin Tone: Fair to Wheatish

On some summer days, I just want to use a sunscreen and compact and I am good to go. This sunscreen cream is perfect for such days as it moisturises well and SPF 40 PA+++ just gets the job done for me. It gives a nice healthy glow to the skin which I liked.
