VLCC Sweat Free Sunblock Lotion SPF 40 Review

Hello everyone 🙂 I was in search of a good sunscreen lotion. The summers in Hyderabad are quiet harsh and I don’t take risk. I apply sunscreen everyday be it any time of the year. I was out of my usual lotus sunscreen lotion and my eyes feel on this one. Reading the sweat free claim I thought there is something special about this sunscreen so I got this one.

I was impressed with the ingredients list it said it’s a combination of natural ingredients like Trehalose, Comfrey Plant Extract, Enantia Chlorantha Extract and Vitamin B3 which shield your skin from the damaging rays of the sun. In addition, this VLCC lotion protects your skin from Ultra-Violet rays that can cause skin ailments and pigmentation. It so looked like a very good deal for me and VLCC products are popular these days so I went ahead and got this.

Price: Rs.325/- for 100 gm.

Directions for using Apply liberally on face and neck 20 minutes before exposure to sun. Reapply for long term results

My Experience with VLCC Sweat Free Sunblock Lotion SPF 40

The product comes in a bright colored yellow plastic pack. The tube has a screw open cap and it closes securely. There is no tension about product leakage or anything of that sort. The tube is travel friendly and comes in small pack as well.

The texture of the product is more like a cream than lotion. The cream is thick and you need efforts to blend it in.  I hate the sunscreens which leave a white cast on my face. When I applied this cream on my face and blended it well it did not leave a white cast. This made me very happy. But the downside is it feels heavy on my face. The face became instantly greasy and oily. I already have an oily skin and more oil on my face scared me.

The anti-sweat property did not work for me atleast. I think the cream is so thick that it closes off the pores of face which is not so good. my face started sweating within 20 minutes of applying this cream. I had to wait for it to dry off and then apply my makeup.

Overall I think this might be a good cream for dry skinned people but for normal to oily skinned people this one is a complete no no! you should skip this cream with closed eyes, if you don’t want oil and sweat sitting on your face.
