We always look out for good sunscreens when it comes to summer. I really hate applying sunscreen but because of the necessity I do. And finally, there are sunscreen sprays which make life easier. I got one from Sebamed since it looked very promising and had a high SPF content. So read the review to know more.

My Experience with Sebamed Sun Care 30 High Multi Protect Sun Spray:
Packaging: The Sebamed sunscreen comes in an outward curved white plastic bottle with an orange cap. It looks very sleek and slim. I really loved the packaging because it looks very decent. The cap closes with a click so the bottle is very handy. Sebamed has so many sunscreens but this with SPF 30 looked prefect to me. The reason I got this is because of the spray nozzle and the spray format. The price is high but since they have medicated stuff, it is okay to splurge that much but I would say we have cheaper alternatives available in spray forms.
Consistency and feel on the skin: The sunscreen comes in white colour and it is super watery. I just spray a little amount on my skin and rub it in. It gets absorbed very easily in my skin without a lot of massage. But I have to make sure that I massage well to avoid the whitish cast. It does not feel heavy at all like the sunscreen in the tubes. It also does not leave any greasy cast behind on my skin. This in particular I think is a fragrance free version because I couldn’t see any noticeable scent. But I could just smell a mild scent which fades in seconds.
Results: It is very difficult to understand what a sunscreen does for your skin. It does not irritate my skin nor does it cause any allergy. And after testing it for a long time, I have observed that it did not let my skin tan. I use it every day and my skin-tone still looks the same. But the day when I went to the water park my skin got tanned completely because of the chlorine in the water and extreme heat. So if you are a beach babe then this is not for you but if you want one for every day use for yourself or for your kids, then this can be the one.
Pros of Sebamed Sun Care 30 High Multi Protect Sun Spray:
• Very handy.
• Comes in a spray form.
• Very convenient to use.
• Thin layer of lotion.
• Does not leave the skin greasy or oily.
• SPF 30 which is great.

Cons of Sebamed Sun Care 30 High Multi Protect Sun Spray:
• A lot of quantity gets used at once.
• Needs to be massaged well to avoid whitish cast.
IMBB Rating: 4.3/5
Will I Repurchase/Recommend Sebamed Sun Care 30 High Multi Protect Sun Spray?
I wouldn’t get this again because I know I won’t use it during the winters but I will try the Lotus Phytorx Sunblock Spray!
Conclusion: I think this was my first product from Sebamed, I might try some more if I find them to be interesting.
