If you are wondering what the hell this sunscreen is doing perched precariously on planks of creaking wood, i have an explanation. See, this is what happens in the Sagar household every Saturday morning. A beauty blogger wakes up at 10:00 am hoping to catch some natural light, whips out her camera and clicks all the photos that she needs for the coming week (yes im organised that way!). Weekdays are spent in office, and since my employers will not particularly like me making pouty lip faces while doing lip swatches, all of this is reserved for the weekend. The photography session is wrapped up in about half an hour to an hour depending on the number of products , and all of this happens in our backyard much to the neighbours amusement. (Neighbour if you are reading this- i am not winking at you ok. I am shutting one eye and clicking tutorials) Now obviously, with just a month to go before the wedding the last thing i want is a stubborn tan because of the time spent in the sun, so more often than not i have my sunscreen lying around somewhere handy- like this little nook in a wooden ladder in my backyard .
The new Lakme Sun Expert Sunscreen range is not really ‘new” actually. More like old wine in new bottle. If you remember last year, Lakme launched a Similar Sunscreen which i spoke about here . This is pretty much the same product is a nicer, yellower packaging. So to give you a super short review- i like this sunscreen. I like that it has a high SPF and that it doesnt make my face shiney. I like that it gives me solid protection without feeling sticky or heavy. It does need some work to blend in, but most ones with high SPF do…and it does leave a slightly whitish cast on your face initially, but overall its a really good sunblock. Perhaos what i like best is that it is relatively light weight as compared to other high SPF sunscreens. While my Neutrogena Dry Touch is still my favourite sunscreen (nothing can beat the protection it provides period), sometimes it can get a bit too heavy during the summer months. This one is nice and light.
It does mention that this is for Normal to Dry skin, but i feel like if you do have very dry skin you would need a moisturizer for sure. This definitely does not moisturize enough for me!
