Yipppppeee!!!! I did my first ZARA shopping and that too without a hole in my pocket. It took me half a month to come down to ground state. No kidding here. I’m serious. I was in Bangalore this November for my BFF engagement and also gave my brother a visit at the last hour before heading back home. And guess what! My brother treated me to ZARA. I would have bought the whole shop but time was a constraint(no not money. Thanks to my Big bro!). I was very tired and could only try out, let’s say around 30 garments.LOL. Eagerly waiting for ZARA to kickstart at Forum mall in Hyderabad. Okay enough blabber for now and check out my review of my best winter sunscreen find.

My Experience with Stiefel SpectraBAN Sunscreen Sensitive SPF30 Anti-UVA UVB PA++ :
The best thing I liked about this sunscreen is that it is not perfumed nor does it have those funny medicated smells. It has a really faint smell that I can’t name or remember. So goodie points for not irritating my sensitive nose. And then, it’s winter now and my skin though oily has some dry patches needs a moisturiser. Taming my skin with my regular go-to sunscreen is a pain now. So I was surprised when I tried this sunscreen. It has a thin texture but not runny and spreads evenly on the skin. It gets absorbed quickly giving the skin a proper balance of moisture. It does not make my skin look oily and covers the dry patches nicely. So I can skip moisturiser before(I know, I am a lazy girl). You will definitely have a white cast just after applying. But it will vanish before you count 20.When I researched about the manufacturing company -Stiefel, I found out that this product is actually for normal to dry skin apart from sensitive skin. So I think this sunscreen would work for me only in the winters as my face is an oil-factory in the summers. So my winter routine is now updated with this sunscreen. I used this on my face to my Goa trip; hence can vouch for the sun protection. I did not tan at all with all the precaution. The sunscreen did not block my large pores and stays true to its claims of non-comedogenic. So yay for the sunscreen in Winters.
Pros of Stiefel SpectraBAN Sunscreen Sensitive SPF30 Anti-UVA UVB PA++:
• Travel-friendly packaging
• Good SPF protection and also has high PA factor(protection against UVA radiations)
• Water resistant.
Cons of Stiefel SpectraBAN Sunscreen Sensitive SPF30 Anti-UVA UVB PA++ :
• None that I can think of. May be it will not suit me in summers. I do not know yet. Will update then.
