My Take on Lakme Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF 24:

The sunscreen has a smooth creamy texture and it spreads and absorbs easily within few seconds of application. It doesn’t take much time to absorb into the skin ike most sunscreens and absorbs pretty quick. It is perfect for oily to combination skin types as it lightly moisturizes without making skin greasy but yeah it isn’t moisturizing enough for dry skin as my skin feels dehydrating after 10-15 minutes of applying this sunscreen. I’m using this sunscreen on my hands, face and on my feet and I feel the need to use another body lotion after I have used this sunscreen as my hands and face are feeling dry in this weather but it didn’t feel drying in summer months!Lakme Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF 24 ReviewI use it soon after taking bath generally as a moisturizer and SPF 24 is good enough for protecting me from harmful sun rays when indoors. I don’t apply this sunscreen while moving out of the house as I rely on higher SPF for outdoors so can’t really say how good it is in preventing sun tan or sun burn but yeah SPF 24 is good enough for everyday use and if you don’t spend much time outdoors. As for the fairness claims, they are all false as I haven’t seen any fairer or glowing effect in my skin since I have started using this sunscreen. Companies have got habitual to making big claims for their products and that’s why they use terms like brighter, fairer, whiter skin on every product to get consumers attracted but don’t worry :dance: when we bloggers are here to guide you on every product then why fall into the trap of these false claims ;) The lemongrass and vitamin B3 in it might prevent from sun tanning as they have lightening properties but giving fairer skin, I don’t really think it’s possible as these ingredients are last in the ingredient list which means very small amount of them have been used which would neither make you fair or give you glowing skin.

Lakme Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF 24 ReviewThe sunscreen doesn’t leave a white caste, now that’s a plus point ;) and it doesn’t make skin greasy but it won’t work for dry skin. It would be a good option for you if you use makeup on a daily basis as it feels very light and doesn’t leave a white caste. It has a nice refreshing fragrance which I think might be of lemongrass but is soon vanishes after 5-10 minutes.Lakme Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF 24

      Lotus matte gel SPF 50 or Neutrogena ultra sheer dry touch sunblock SPF 50 are good sunscreens to be used when stepping outdoors, I personally would suggest SPF 50 when stepping out! Xoxo
