As you all know, sun rays during winter is much harmful. Sunscreen is a must before stepping out this season. I had been to the party city of India, Goa 🙂 . Sunscreen is a must to carry in our handbag. I bought a couple of sun screens. Today I am going to review one of the moisturising sunscreen I came across that of Shahnaz Husain Nano Sunscreen Gel 5 in 1 nano sunscreen gel with UVA and UVB protection, SPF 20, PA+.
I had never got the chance to try any of the products from this brand. This is my first Shahnaz Husain’s product and I loved it.
275 INR for 100 g.
Enriched with botanical ingredients, the formulation offers broad spectrum protection from sun damage. Specially designed for skin protection before and after sun exposure, it replenishes essential nutrients and moisturises the skin. In gel form for quick absorption. It contains aloe vera, cucumber, carrot seeds and sunflower. Ideal for all skin types, it protects and soothes the skin from the effects of sun exposure, leaving it soft, smooth and radiant.
Apply on face and neck 20 minutes before sun exposure. Leave on.
Some facts about UVA and UVB:
- UVA, which penetrates the skin more deeply than UVB, has long been known to play a major part in skin aging and wrinkling.
- UVA is the dominant tanning ray.
- UVB, the chief cause of skin reddening and sunburn, tends to damage the skin’s more superficial epidermal layers. It plays a key role in the development of skin cancer and a contributory role in tanning and photoaging.
- Since both UVA and UVB are harmful, you need protection from both kinds of rays. To make sure you’re getting effective UVA, as well as UVB coverage.
My Experience with Shahnaz Husain Nano Sunscreen Gel:
It costs 275 INR for 100g bottle. It is affordable. This comes in a pump styled bottle. One should be contious before pumping it to take the product. You might end up taking out more quantity of product than needed. It might lead to product wastage. Plastic bottle is much more hygeinic as compared to tub one. This is good quality package, hence no need to worry about breakage. One more angelic point is, it is cruelty free. It is not tested on animals. I hate it when they are used to test the products 🙁 .
This gel is in golden color. Fragrance reminds me of Lacto Calamine. It is a fresh fragrance. I used it in Goa. I used to apply it approximately 15 minutes before stepping out. This beauty did it’s job. This product is VERY moisturising. It does not leave any greasy or oily residue. Goa and not going to beach to play in the sea is like not happening. So, it is waterproof girlies.
In short, it does what it claims. This protects from harsh sun rays and it keeps skin hydrated. I couldn’t ask for more! Small amount is enough. It is ideal for face and neck. I used it on my hands and arms too. Since little goes long way, it lasts for good amount of time. This product is worth it’s price. It has shelf life of 2 years. My quest for moisturising suncreen lotion/gel ends here 🙂 . But, yes tanning is something which we can not avoid. We can protect our skin from damage though. I got tanned a bit, but this product saved me from harsh rays. Let me list all the pros and cons.
