Merry Christmas to all of you. Did you get anything from your secret Santa? How is the weather treating you? How many of you have watched Dhoom3? I am yet to watch it, though I heard negative feedbacks about the movie. And yeah, who all watch Bigg Boss. Which one is your favorite? This time I don’t have any favorite in the house but still I want Gauhar to win.
Ok enough of chit chats. Let’s come to today’s review. Today’s review is for Lacto Calamine Sun Shield Daily Use Sunscreen (Oily to Normal Skin). Lacto calamine is one brand which is always present in my home. My mum has used it and she was the one who introduced me to this brand. I am using Lacto calamine moisturizer from like ages. I was looking for a good sunscreen and came across this one. I came to IMBB to search for its review but this variant was not reviewed (dry skin one was reviewed) but I went ahead and purchased this one as lacto calamine is a trusted brand. So did I like it? Read on guys…

My experience with Lacto Calamine Sun Shield Daily Use Sunscreen (Oily to Normal Skin)
The sunscreen comes in a white tube with yellow cap. The tube comes in a white cardboard. I kind of loved the packaging. It looks cute and simple with white and yellow colors. The sunscreen is white in color and as soon as I smelled it, it reminded me of Ayur Sunscreen. Yes, it smells somewhat like that, not completely. You only need a small amount and it spreads smoothly on face. Well this was all good about the product. Let me tell you about all the problems now.
The product leaves a whitish cast and although it is made for oily skin, it made my skin feel super oily. I have super oily skin and I even in this weather if I apply something heavy, my skin break out. After applying it, I had to clear my face with tissue because my face was looking like I had applied oil over it. And it made me sweat so much. I hated it. When I left my house in the sun, I was sweating so much over my forehead. Also, because of greasy nature it kind of made me look dark in color. So summing my experience for you:
Positives for Lacto Calamine Sun Shield Daily Use Sunscreen (Oily to Normal Skin):
• Reasonably priced
• Good SPF coverage
• Available easily
• Only small amount needed
• Moisturizes well
Negative for Lacto Calamine Sun Shield Daily Use Sunscreen (Oily to Normal Skin):
• Leaves a whitish cast
• Makes my oily skin super oily post use. So it is definitely not for people who have super oily skin like me
• Makes me look dark
• The product makes me sweat heavily
Will I Repurchase or recommend Lacto Calamine Sun Shield Daily Use Sunscreen (Oily to Normal Skin)?
I will not buy it again and will look for a light sunscreen. It says it is made for oily skin but it did not suit my oily skin. Might be it will suit Normal/ combination skin girls. But oily skin girls should skip it.
