Shahnaz Husain Nano Sun Block Review

Shahnaz Husain Nano Sun Block Review

By Shreya Jain

Hi Everyone!

Here I am with my first review. Being a college student, I hardly stay indoors even on hot summer days, but Kolkata’s humid weather coupled with my combination skin, made it really difficult for me to apply sunscreens. With all the tanning and sweating together, I started out on a hunt to find the perfect sunscreen which would protect my pretty skin and at the same time not turn me into an oil factory 😛 So when I came across this sun block from Shahnaz Husain which claimed to be an 8-in-1 product, I literally jumped. The product claims to be a sun block, moisturizer, waterproof, matte, nongreasy, anti tan, skin whitening, anti ageing.


Product Description:

A unique sunblock formulation, based on the latest nano technology, it is designed to deliver sun-protective properties deep into the skin. Of SPF 25, it provides broad spectrum protection from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. Containing natural antioxidants and re-hydrants, like vitamin E, green tea, carrot seed, ginseng, sunflower oil, it blocks out harmful sun damage, maintaining the desired moisture level, removing tan and visibly lightening skin colour. A non greasy formulation, it provides a smooth matte texture, leaving the skin soft, radiant and youthful.  It’s a nano sun block where nano technology used in formulation helps in the absorption of the precious herbs with atomic precision.

My Take on Shahnaz Husain Nano Sun Block:

Shahnaz Husain being one of the most reputed herbal brands, I had high expectations from this product.  Its very thin in consistency which spills over if you don’t open the tight cap carefully and has some kind of a faint fruity smell which lingers for just a few moments. This is really nice as a sunblock and it also worked great as an anti-tanning product; no tanning and skin burns 😀 But this is the only plus point of the product because it fails in all the other claims it makes.

Its not at all matte for my combination skin and I always have to top it up with some face powder, otherwise it looks greasy.  Even after that, my skin becomes oily after a couple of hours. I am not sure about the claim of being waterproof.  I have almost completed the entire tube, but I am yet to see any effect of whitening on my skin.

Pros of Shahnaz Husain Nano Sun Block:

  • It works great as an anti-tanning product.
  • Affordable.
  • Travel-friendly packaging.
  • Faint fruity smell.
  • Contains natural ingredients like Vitamin E, green tea, carrot seed, ginseng, etc.
  • Easily available.
  • Broad spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays.

Cons of Shahnaz Husain Nano Sun Block:

  • You need to be careful while opening the flip cap, otherwise the cream spills over.
  • Does not moisturize the skin.
  • No matte effect for people with combination or oily skin.
  • No visible skin whitening.
  • Endless list of chemicals.
  • Contains parabens.
  • Results in a lot of sweating and makes my skin oily after a couple of hours.

IMBB Rating:

2.5/5, it might work for winters, but I am not buying it for summers again.
