It comes in an apaque, matte, blue to white ombre tube with a twist and lock cap. The brand name and product description is mentioned on the tube.
It has a thick, creamy consistency and has the texture of a white glue. It feels sticky on application, but this feeling fades away after drying a bit. I would not say it is completely oil free as it gives a nice dewy finish when applied, but as compared to a lot of other sunscreens in the market it is the lightest weight and less greasy sunscreen I have tried up till now. The only drawback I found is, it might break you out in the T-zone or where ever your skin gets the most oily. I have been using it on a daily basis now and I am noticing a little change in my skin. It broke me out in my forehead, but thinking about my skin care routine which is not very consistent now, I cannot completely blame this sunscreen. It has a mild, fresh scent which reminds me of my family picnics I don’t know why. Like other sunscreens, It does not leave a white caste on your face during flash photography.
PRICE & AVAILABILITY:
It is available at all the leading super markets and makeup stores nation wide. I bought mine from Home Plus super market (Gulshan-e-Iqbal) for PKR 1180. You can also get your hands on it at http://www.just4girls.pk and http://www.daraz.pk
All in all it is a good sunscreen for dry, normal and combination skin though, it would not be the best option for oily skin types. I love how glowing my skin looks after applying this sunscreen and the best part is that it doesn’t feel very greasy or heavy at all. It is gentle and safe to wear everyday. Combination skinned ladies might notice a slight breakout, but nothing a proper skin care routine can’t beat. Would I recommend it? Yes! It is a must try. I am currently loving it 🙂
