VLCC Sweat Free Sunblock Lotion SPF 40/PA+++

Hello Ladies,

I hope the summer is treating you all well. I have been trying hard not to move out of the house during noon time these days.  Usually, summer is the time when I keep trying different products as skin problems are at its peak during the harsh summers. I hope you all have found the best face wash, shampoo, sunscreen, foundation for yourself and skin products which keep your skin problems at bay.

VLCC Sweat Free Sunblock Lotion SPF 40PA+++

In my search for a good sunscreen, I came across VLCC Sweat Free Sunblock Lotion. Normally, suncreens on face never suit me, so I decided to get a smaller tube to try out.

I was attracted to the VLCC Sunblock Lotion for two things :

  • It says it is a “sweat free” formula.
  • It has SPF 40.


Rs.95 for 30 gms and Rs. 325 for 100 gms.

Product Description:

VLCC Sweat Free Sunblock Lotion SPF 40 /PA+++ provides Broad Spectrum Sun Protection against both UVA and UVB rays of the sun.  A unique “sweat free” formulation that protects the skin against sun damage thus preventing tanning and ageing. Enriched with comfrey plant extract, its anti-irritant properties protect the skin against irritation and redness while the non – greasy formula lends a satin-smooth feel to the skin.  For all skin types.

Directions For Use:

Apply liberally on the face and neck 15-20 minutes before sun exposure. Re-apply frequently for long-duration sun exposure.

Key Ingredients:


Shelf Life:

36 months.


It comes in a tube with a round screw-up cap.

My Take on VLCC Sweat Free Sunblock Lotion SPF 40 /PA+++:


It has a mild fragrance which doesn’t linger on after application. So, overall nothing that would bother one much.

SPF 40


It is quite thick, not at all runny, and looks more of a cream to me than lotion.

The good part is that on application, it doesn’t feel greasy at all and blends into the skin easily. It doesn’t leave my skin shiny as some sunscreens do. I somehow don’t feel that it is non-comedogenic (not that it claims to be), as I do feel that its a bit heavy once I apply.

It did protect my skin from tanning further, but as opposed to the sweat-free claim, my face started sweating the moment I was out in the sun just the way it sweats otherwise.

I applied this for about a day or two and noticed little bumps on my face. I then stopped using this for the next 2 or 3 days and let the bumps settle down. Then, I started using it again and noticed similar bumps again.  Although, it doesn’t feel greasy initially on application, I noticed that after 3-4 hours, it does make my skin greasy. It didn’t really suit my combination skin well. I am planning to finish it off by using it on my hands and legs instead of face.  I am not sure but this may suit those with dry skin. I am still hunting for a good non-greasy, non-comedogenic sunscreen, preferably with SPF 30 or higher.

Pros of VLCC Sweat Free Sunblock Lotion SPF 40 /PA+++:

  • Not very expensive.
  • Available in a smaller tube (easier to carry around).
  • Protects skin from tanning further.

Cons of VLCC Sweat Free Sunblock Lotion SPF 40 /PA+++:

  • Doesn’t prevent skin from sweating.
  • It broke me out.
  • It isn’t non comedogenic.

IMBB Rating:

1/5 🙁 🙁
