Lakme 9 to 5 Mattifying Super Sunscreen Review (3) Lakme 9 to 5 Mattifying Super Sunscreen Review

Curiousity kills the cat they say, but for its the case of ‘Curiosity kills the pocket’. Whenever I come across a new product, I have to go test it out an  when I came across Lakme Launches 9 to 5 Super Sunscreen SPF 50+++ launch  post in Peaches and Blush and I read about the variants i.e.about the one meant for oily skin, I became super curious to try the Mattifying one.

Product Description:

  • Dermatologist tested
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Non comedogenic.
  • Layering a light sunscreen sets up your 9 to 5 look for the day.
  • Recommended by Lakme Salon Experts.
  • It is so feather light that you can simply glide it on below your Lakme 9 to 5 Makeup.
  • Broadspectrum, UVA protection helps prevents Tan, UVB protection prevents sunburn with SPF 50 PA+++.
  • With SPF 50 PA+++, keeps skin even toned.
  • The perfect base for your Lakme 9 to 5 look.

Salon Expert Recommended usage:

  • Know your skin type from the salon expert. If your skin is oily you have found your perfect sunscreen.
  • Take two pumps of the Mattifying sunscreen in your palms. Gently glide across your face in quick strokes.
  • Now finish the look with your Lakme 9 to 5 Makeup.
  • Reapply every 3-4 hours for maximum broad-spectrum protection.

My views about the product:

The sunscreen is lightweight and non greasy. It has a thicker consistency i.e. creamy with a subtle fruity fragrance and glides easily on the  skin . It does not feel sticky or uncomfortable post application , and  this beauty comes with Mattifying claims so it keeps my skin matte and oil free for some time after usage. Any girl with oily skin who has used a high SPF sunscreen would know the woes of shineyness an greasyness which are minimised with this super sunscreen.

It comes with SPF 50 PA+++ protection which is adequate for me as most of the time during the day, I stay indoors .  Also the packaging says that you should reapply every 3-4 hours for maximum protection- that’s how I use it.  I am so loving the fragrance and the Mattifying effects that I don’t mind re-applying it at frequent intervals. So all in all it is a nice Sunscreen and I want to thank Peaches and Blush for prompting me to try-out this nice product.
