So, this goes back to my days of hunting for a perfect regime to get that much coveted glow on my D-Day. I had wanted to decide on using one set of products 3 months before my wedding to avoid any chances of zit and scars on my wedding day. Now, that was a tough call since I love experimenting with multiple products at the same time ;). Anyway, as I was going around South City Mall in Kolkata the Chambor beauty expert lured me into trying their Whitening Active System range. Though I have used all of the products in this range, I will have to mention the UV Protector( SPF 29 PA++).
“The UV Protector with its Triple Action Formula provides one step procedure to whiten, moisturize & protect the skin. Vitamin C derivative diminishes the spots while White Lily & Aloe Vera moisturizes & smoothens the skin. It also contains 3 special powders that correct skin color, covers dullness giving the skin radiance for a healthy glow. ”
How to use:
Take a pea sized amount on your fingertips and apply it onto face smoothing it out until it blends in the skin completely. For best benefits as a sunscreen, one must apply it 30 minutes before going out in the sun. Claims to work better with continuous usage of the entire Whitening Active System.
It comes in a white tube which a wide nozzle and screw on cap. The tube is fairly small in size and hence, would not consume too much of space in your travel bags.
Rs. 680 for 30 ml
My experience with Chambor UV Protector SPF 29 PA++
It claims to “provide a one-step-regime to whiten, moisturize and protect skin from harmful UV rays and protects the skin against UVA/UVB rays that cause sun-burn, cell damage, dryness, roughness and pre-mature ageing. Skin looks visibly lighter and more radiant after just one application.” Personally, I have always been a fan of such products which have multiple uses like this one which could be used as a leave-on moisturiser or a primer/make up base or a sunscreen. I would just have to use this one product for hiding my blemishes and protect myself from the sun on an everyday basis.
I love this product since it gives me a subtle glow which I absolutely love. This pinkish cream is not too thick in consistency and is not too runny either. A little would go a long way and in case you squeeze out more than required, the wide nozzle makes it very easy to put some stuff back into the tube. I would recommend this to everyone who avoid using foundation frequently since I find this as a good substitute to a light foundation coverage. It does not create any excess oil and shine on the face and gives a perfect matte glow. I have a combination skin and it definitely works fine for me. I will recommend it to all the readers who are in search of a UV protectant or a multipurpose cream.
Pros of Chambor UV Protector SPF 29 PA++:
- Gives you the perfect glow.
- A little goes a long way.
- Multi purpose – can be used as a makeup base, sunscreen, moisturiser etc.
- Promotes better application of foundation and also helps makeup last longer.
- Easily removed with gentle cleansers.
Cons of Chambor UV Protector SPF 29 PA++ :
- One has to be very careful while deciding on the amount to use. Overusing it might make the face appear cakey.
- The price is a little on the higher side as compared to other Chambor products and the size of the tube.
