Hey everyone, today I will post L’Oreal UV Perfect Long Lasting UVA UVB protector SPF 50 Review. I love trying different sunscreens every time. And the fact that they are so important to protect skin against the sun damage and premature aging, it is good to stick a high SPF sunscreen. For every day wear I am fine with sunscreens having SPF of 30 but for when I am going to be out for long I prefer higher values. This time I decided to try this UV protector by L’Oreal.
L’Oreal has some three different types on sunscreens in this range including anti dullness, transparent skin and even complexion. I decided to go with the even complexion variant because it claimed to even out skin tone a bit along with protecting it.

My Experience with L’oreal UV Perfect Long Lasting UVA UVB protector SPF 50
L’Oreal UV Perfect Long Lasting UVA UVB protector SPF 50 comes in a slim pearly white tube which is perfect for carrying around. There is a twist up cap attached which is very secure and the packaging is quite good. But the ingredients list is not mentioned anywhere on the bottle. The bottle has a thin nozzle to dispense the product.
The texture of L’oreal UV Perfect Long Lasting UVA UVB protector SPF 50 is like a thick fluid, it is not too runny and has no noticeable smell. As the name suggests it has a light beige tint and is not completely white as a result there is white cast left behind. Even though the color looks quite light I feel it will work for most skin tones as it settles down within few minutes of application. I had expected it to give some sort of coverage however it does not have any coverage and this UVA UVB protector is completely sheer, it cannot replace a tinted moisturizer or a light coverage BB cream but only acts as a base. So it fails to give an even complexion.
I have combination skin type with oily t-zone and I don’t need to use any moisturizer with it, as it alone is very moisturizer. L’oreal UV Perfect Long Lasting UVA UVB protector SPF 50 is not the most lightweight sunscreen I have used and oil skin will find it too heavy. Also it has a very shiny or dewy finish, which makes my skin look even more oily and hence will not be a good product for summers. I think this sunscreen is best suited for dry skin only.
The major thing I like about L’Oreal UV Perfect Long Lasting UVA UVB protector SPF 50 is the high SPF, It protects my skin for a good 4-5 hours and I do not notice any kind of tanning when I am outdoors. But again any other good sunscreen in the market with high SPF does that, and I find it really overpriced for the tiny 30ml of product provided.
Overall, L’Oreal UV Perfect Long Lasting UVA UVB protector SPF 50 is a great sunscreen for dry skin type which acts as a moisturizer as well. If you are looking for a budget sunscreen to give matte look, then skip it.
