My Experience :
Well! I have finally found my HG sunscreen. Finally! 😀 I am a regular user of Vichy Sunscreen. It’s nice but it’s not awesome. I have read Zeeba’s review on the same sunscreen HERE but I was not sure if it was available here in India. I finally found this at my nearby medical store. I don’t think this product is available at the regular cosmetic shops. Anyhoo..
- It is a moisturizer cum sunscreen. I feels is nice and smooth on the skin. For winters, it does not suffice as a moisturizer for my dry skin but for summers, I dont think I’d need a separate moisturizer.
- It feels very lightweight on skin and gets absorbed within seconds.
- Also does not make your skin greasy or sweaty . It just adds a bit if dewiness to the skin.
- It does not leave any whitish cast behind . It goes on white on skin but within 10-15 seconds the sunscreen gets absorbed and your skin is ready for the makeup. It does not leave any residue behind on your skin.
- Has SPF 50 and UVA 28 protection.
- Has a medicinal smell but not bothersome. In fact it fades within a few seconds.
- It is hypoallregenic
- Never broke me out.
- Comes in a non fussy tube . Easy to travel with.

Got sample of this but never dared to try 🙁
why?… oily skin?
No, I thought dad ko mila hai, medicine type ka hoga 🙁 dumbo!
Galderma`s products always rescued my skin during bad skin days – like their benzac AC works well for pimples – the best thing is – their products wont break most people out – they are safe. I was currently using the suncote gel from Curatio , it works well for oily skin.
i am in love with this sunscreen arja . it’s just awesome. i mean finding a good sunscreen is such a task in itself. Most of the time are disgustingly greasy and all… thanks for the reco. :))
I`ll definitely give this a try , I dont think availability will be a problem. Yeah that is why most people skip sunscreen as much as they can – the garnier (moisturiser + sunscreen ) ones give that horrid white cast and turns one into a greaseball 😛 Kudos to you then – for a great find 😀
oh this one does not have any issues at all. I forgot to add the swatch yesterday. just added. Check out how it looks after blending. pretty awesome. 😀 Hope you like it 🙂
is this better than la rocha posay wala sunscreen?
for me, yes.
Rati, are you saying its better than la rocha posay bcoz its more moisturising?
Not for oily skin…..grrr….but so good for dry skin, I will suggest it to my fraands 🙂
please suggest this to me jomo.. i want to be fraands with you. 😛
