Nature’s Essence Sun Ban 30 Sunscreen Lotion
Hey ya all IMBB beauties :pompom: A few days ago Sanjeev ji wrote an informative article on sunscreens. In continuation with that I want to review a product which I’m using since June this year. :toothgrin: I’m gonna review Nature’s Essence Sun Ban 30 Sunscreen Lotion today. Mine has SPF 30, other variants having SPF 20 & SPF 40 are also available as SA told me but were not available at the counter. I was waiting for SPF 40 of the same product so first time when SA showed it to me I didn’t purchased it. I’ve a fair complexion & my skin needs SPF 50 according to Lakme’s know your SPF in 3 easy steps published in Femina’s May edition.
On my next visit to that shop SPF 40 was still not available. :spank: At last, I purchased this.
I bought this product for my arms & feet basically, for face I use Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sun Block SPF 50. It’s a small tube of 30ml so I don’t use it on hands & other areas currently. I’m pretty satisfied with what it does to me except for the price hence a different product for my arms & feet. :toothgrin:
Price: Rs. 65

What packaging says

My take on Nature’s Essence Sun Ban 30 Sunscreen Lotion
Well, I didn’t have much hope from this product. But it didn’t disappoint me overall. The product comes in tube packaging with a nozzle a top. It’s a tinted lotion but it doesn’t interfere with any kind of makeup applied to the skin. Texture is creamy & glides easily without leaving oily or sticky feeling. It doesn’t leave any white cast on skin like most sunscreens do. The fragrance is herbal but I cannot define it except my sensitive nose can bear it. I don’t like it much. Coming to what it does to my skin. I use this lotion daily on my arms & feet. And yes I’m very much satisfied with this lotion. One day I was feeling lazy so I applied this & moved out. It absorbed pretty well & I skipped moisturizer after that. I didn’t find any break outs. I’ve oily skin. After a few hours when I splashed plain water on my face, it had a nice glow :haanji: Even my mom asked me what I had done which she never ever does!!! Actually my mom always ignores my inclination towards makeup & beauty products. I don’t like this attitude of my mumma.
After this chamatkaar, whenever I’m running out of time, I apply this lotion on my face & go out. The same thing happens every time but now I’m used to the glow it imparts. :preen: :toothgrin:

My thumbs-down for Nature’s Essence Sun Ban 30 Sunscreen Lotion
:no: fragrance I don’t like it.
:no: availability is confined to outlets having its franchise
:no: complete ingredient list is not there only active ingredients are mentioned
:no: it is not a sun block so no UV-A protection
Should I re-purchase :announce: Yeah, it’s a good product for using on a body as sun blocks are comparatively costlier than sun screens. And being a college student I need to manage my expenses on a cosmetic product wisely because my mumma doesn’t support much of my cosmetic purchases.
