The weather these days has me so irritated. September is such a difficult month to ger through; it’s either pouring for hours at end or hot and humid like hell. Combine this with a cold I’ve been having for a fortnight; I for one will be certainly glad when September ends.
I always apply my sunscreen before going outside. Even when at home, I use it in the morning
I have been using Dr.Jart+ and Lotus Herbals Sun Safe lotion SPF 90 for a few years. These two have been my HG sun protection creams and I repurchased them without hesitation. I usually stick with products I like and that suits my skin. However, this time I felt like trying something different; I used Lotus Herbals Safe Sun Whitening+ Active Tan Prevention Creme SPF 50 PA+++. I have been using this cream for a month. Today I’ll write of my experience with this product.
What company says…
Its proven that sun’s UV rays the biggest reason for skin darkening. Safe sun whitening tan prevention cream is formulated with unique potent herbs and active sun block. It’s a breakthrough double action formula which controls melanin production in skin and gives instant whitening. Provides spot less whitening all day while preventing dark sports.
In the mirror of my own experience
Lotus Herbal Active Tan Prevention Cream comes in lovely white squeeze tube that has an orange flip open cap. The packaging is very nice and very comfortable for using and carrying out too. I can keep it in my handbag easily. You can keep it on any surface without hesitation. It is available only in one size that I don’t like. The tube finishes very quickly and doesn’t last long. My tube is about to get empty and it’s not been a month since I bought it.
The cream has a very mild and lovely smell that I love. The texture is a bit thick but it is so soft and smooth. It blends easily when applied on the skin and feels very light. It moisturizes my skin perfectly and gives a semi matte finish that I love.
I apply it on my face, neck and all the exposing parts of my body 10 minute before going out. At home, I only apply it on my face and neck. I need a sufficient amount to cover my face and neck as my skin is normal/dry. But it spread very well and gets absorbed into the skin without any effort. It gives a natural glow to the skin instantly. The best part of this cream is that it doesn’t leave a white cast on my face like other whitening creams do. The color of the product is quite similar to my skin tone so it works like a very light tinted moisturizer. It makes my skin bright and radiant. I really love the effect which I achieve after applying it.
It has amazing power of controlling oil. It can control oil for about 3-4 hours easily. If you are a person who has to spend much time in sun, my advice is that you should reapply your sunscreen after 1 or two hours. If you are a regular reader of Chamber Of Beauty, you would know that I don’t have belief in SPF numbers to a great extent. So in concern for your skin, you should apply after time to time.
The cream has SPF 50 PA +++ so it makes it a good sun protection cream for summer/monsoon in India. I have been using this for about a month and I must say that it works well on my skin. It provided sun protection to my skin from damage. It also prevents my skin from tanning.
The staying power of this cream is great. It stays for about whole day when I am at home. Even outside, it keeps my skin fresh and oil free for about 5 hours. Though I always reapply the cream after 2-3 hours whenever I’m under the sun.
The claim of providing a spot less skin by the cream is not true. It doesn’t work to reduce the dark spots. But yes, it prevents the skin from being spotted. It gives an instant glow and brightness to it and you don’t need much makeup after applying it. It never broke me out.
The only problem is that it works very well in summers for all skin types but in winter if anyone has dry skin it can make the skin a bit dry as it does not contain extra moisturizing content.
