Hi Beauties 🙂 Do you all know that sun is closer to earth during winters than in summers? It is absolute necessary to wear sunscreen even in winters. I am just back from a small trip and I got this sunscreen specially for the trip as it was quite hot and humid in Phuket. I had a lot of option to look at for sunscreen, from spf 10 to spf 75, but none of the sunscreens assured to give a coverage of more than four hours. I did not want to use sunscreen every three or four hours, so here I found this sunscreen from 9 to 5 range so that I could apply once and forget the rest of the day J. Though this also recommends to use it after every four hours.

What Lakme 9 to 5 Mattifying Super Sunscreen SPF50 Claims
My Experience with Lakme 9 to 5 Mattifying Super Sunscreen Spf 50
Lakme 9 to 5 Mattifying Super Sunscreen Spf 50 is a cute peach color cylindrical bottle with a golden cap. The cap fits well to the bottle with a click sound. There is a pump attached to the bottle to dispense the exact quantity of sunscreen every time. This avoids wastage and helps in cream lasting long. The tube is opaque and is very difficult to judge the amount of quantity inside. The tube is very much travel friendly and can be carried in handbags easily.
The color of Lakme 9 to 5 Mattifying Super Sunscreen Spf 50 is white in color and is medium thick in consistency. Only few drops are required for entire face and neck application. The cream should be used on bare face and as a base to other make up. Lakme 9 to 5 Mattifying Super Sunscreen Spf 50 blends easily in skin and does not leave any white cast behind. Once applied I only set it with my compact as I don’t prefer doing heavy make up on trips 🙂 . It gives a nice mattifying effect to my skin and evens out my skin tone. My skin appears smooth and flawless.
I am a big fan of 9 to 5 range as they tend to give effect for a longer time and I do not have to apply it every two hours. It is recommended to use sun screen 20 min before stepping out in the sun. As I do not get exposed to sun on weekdays, I have kept this Lakme 9 to 5 Mattifying Super Sunscreen Spf 50 for my special trips and weekends. This tube is for all skin types, and totally sweatproof and waterproof. On my Phuket trip, I was running out of sun screen body lotion, and I have applied this on my body too while snorkeling and swimming.
But the most fantastic thing about Lakme 9 to 5 Mattifying Super Sunscreen Spf 50 is that it is non-comedogenic that is it does not block pores or in simple terms, is does not contain ingredients proven to cause pore blockages. All acne sufferers should use products which are non comedogenic to prevent from further breakouts. Currently, I am facing mild acne on my skin and I am reluctant to buying products with lots of chemicals. But then, sunscreens are must and this is the only sunscreen which is non comedogenic.
The quantity is quite less for the price we pay for a sunscreen, but then if you do not want to get tanned, it is absolute necessary to use sun screens with higher SPF. Lakme 9 to 5 Mattifying Super Sunscreen Spf 50 tube should last for 30 -40 days if used on daily basis. I used this tube religiously for a week on my trip and my face did not get tanned a bit.
Overall, Lakme 9 to 5 Mattifying Super Sunscreen SPF 50 is highly recommended and an absolute must sunscreen for acne sufferers which would not cause any further breakouts. It really protects the skin from suns harsh rays and avoids tanning.
