Hiya !! How are you all ? All good under the hood ?? 😀 Today I am going to review one of my favorite sunscreen that I have been using on my face forever and ever. In Chennai, the climate changes from HOT, HOTTER to HOTTEST. My skin tends to get easily tanned I mean in a veryyy non-attractive way. 😕 So, I never forget to slather up sunblock on my face. I have tried many sunblocks but they either made me look oily or broke me out. I started my hunt for sunscreen which wouldn’t give me acne that’s when I came across this beauty. She was such a rare beauty at that time only a few stores were carried her. 😐 Hahaha.. I know I know this goes more like a suspense story. I shall reveal her name now. 😛
Let’s come back to the original review 😀
Lotus Herbals Safe Sun 3-In-1 Matte Look Daily Sunblock (SPF 40)-
I wasn’t really a fan of Lotus products until I tried this one out. I didn’t like it upon applying it for the first time but afterwards I got used to it. The consistency of this sunblock is not too thick or too thin just perfect cream-like to blend out and it also has a light tint to it. It evened out my skin because I don’t wear foundation everyday. So, let’s see how it fared for me.
Suitable Skin Type- All Skin Types

Did the product work for me ?
I must say the claims are true to some extent. It gives a nice glow to the face which I like. It has the right amount of slippery feel so my powder foundation & compact powders adheres to the skin in a better way. I am pretty impressed with the result.
Has SPF of 40 which is awesome. (Woohoo)
Sinks into the skin very quickly.
Has a slight tint to it.
Gives a pretty glow after it dries.
Protects the skin from tanning.
Never broke me out. (Brownie Points) 🙂
Holds my makeup well.
Can be used as a makeup base too.
No whitish cast.
It doesn’t control oil at all.
Skin lightening claim is false.
It is mildly gritty to apply on skin.
A slight stinging sensation for a few seconds if the skin is very sensitive or has existing acne.
Needs to be blended quickly because it dries quickly.
If not blended properly it becomes uneven and won’t apply smoothly.
People with dark complexion might find the tint too light for their liking.
Some may not like the fragrance.
It transfers easily to light-colored clothing. 🙁
Rating: 4/5 minus 1 for not controlling oil and gritty particles in the sunblock.
Price: 345/- (100g)
Would I repurchase this again ? Yes, definitely.. 😀
