Firstly the name of this sunblock is so long and confusing that I just wrote Lotus Herbals Anti-Tan Creme SPF 50 Sunblock in the title or else it would just reserve two lines in my title itself if I had written what is on the tube. Well never mind, just jump to read what this product actually does! I hope you all can see the packaging from the pics so I’m not going into detail describing the packaging but one thing I have to say about the packaging is that the last leftover product is very difficult to press out as I keep pressing the tube from everywhere and it doesn’t seem to come out in any way.This sunblock has SPF 50 and PA+++ which is great for preventing against tanning and wrinkles but I don’t think it looks good when applied while going out as it leaves an oily layer on skin even on my dry skin.
The consistency of this sunblock is like a thick cream but it spreads easily and doesn’t leave a white caste. If this sunscreen gets into my eyes by mistake like when I’m crying and I rub my whole face like what happened today while watching the Satyamev Jayte episode, I was literally crying seeing what all is happening in our country, don’t you get tears too in your eyes while watching such emotional things? Well, I’m too emotional and can’t bear such things!! And while I was crying my eyes burnt like hell and also when I wash my face, my eyes burns because of this sunscreen. I’m not able to understand this sunscreen till now even when it’s about to finish. Sometimes, it makes me look good and the other times it dulls out my complexion and looks weird on me. So sometime I like it and sometime I don’t, it’s a 50-50 situation for me. I usually apply sunscreen in the corner of my lips where I’m most prone to pigmentation and applying this sunscreen on that area is a crime coz I don’t know but somehow it enters my mouth and I can feel the yuck taste of it and so don’t do the mistake of applying it near your mouth coz it will enter your taste buds, don’t know how but it will and also near your eye area coz it burns the eyes.
It makes my skin a bit oily so a big no-no for oily skin and about the anti-tan claim, I really can’t comment on it as I don’t apply this when going out just because it makes my skin oily and dull so I keep it only for the days when I’m staying at home. And I’ve used the full tube and I could not feel any skin whitening as such so those are false claims.Pros of Lotus Herbals Anti-Tan Creme SPF 50 Sunblock:
- Travel friendly packaging.
- Easily available.
- Has SPF 50 and PA+++

Cons of Lotus Herbals Anti-Tan Creme SPF 50 Sunblock:

- No visible skin whitening.

- The last leftover product is difficult to press out.
- No visible skin whitening.
- Full ingredient list is missing.

BML Rating: 1.5/5
You can probably give it a miss coz there are lot’s more better options in the market to choose from. I have given it 1.5 out of 5 just because it has got high amount of SPF and protection against UVA rays and that it doesn’t leave a white caste but then now most of the sunscreens are coming up with SPF 50 and doesn’t leave a white caste most of the time, so it’s better to skip it.
