My Experience: A sunscreen is the most important product of a skincare routine that protects the skin from the damaging rays of the sun. Sun rays are known to cause pigmentation, tanning, premature aging and other skin issues. I have tried several sunscreens in the past and VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Lotion SPF 30 PA+++ is one of them.

Although I don’t remember when I purchased this sunscreen, I have used it several times and found it to be one good product.  

What I like about the product

  1. VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Lotion SPF 30 PA+++ has a thick, creamy consistency and is slightly tinted. You can use it instead of a regular foundation if you do not like to wear makeup daily.
  2. VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Lotion SPF 30 PA+++ is non-sticky, lightweight, blends well and is easily absorbed into the skin without leaving a whitish layer.
  3. It gives a matte finish to the skin. I have dry skin and it suits my skin.
  4. VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Lotion SPF 30 PA+++ has SPF 30 which is adequate for protection from sun rays. However, you need to reapply it every 2-3 hours to prevent damage.
  5. Has PA+++ which is the maximum protection provided by a sunscreen from UVA rays.
  6. VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Lotion SPF 30 PA+++ is free of parabens.
  7. It is more affordable than other sunscreens in the market. 100 grams of this product is available for INR 315 (I found some great discounts online).
  8. VLCC products are easily available-both online and in stores.
  9. It smells delicious! It has a fruity smell that disappears after some time.
  10. VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Lotion SPF 30 PA+++ has a travel-friendly packaging and it is convenient to carry in a bag.

 What I don’t like about the product

  1. Although the product is meant for all skin types, I feel that VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Lotion SPF 30 PA+++ may not give a matte finish on oily skin. People with oily skin should test the product first before purchasing it.

Verdict: VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Lotion SPF 30 PA+++ is a good sunscreen that provides adequate protection from the sun. It is lightweight, non-sticky and gives a matte finish to the skin.

Note:

  1.  PARefers to the protection from UVA rays.PA+ provides the least protection while PA+++ provides maximum protection from UVA rays.
  2. SPF 30SPF 30 means that this sunscreen provides 30 times the protection of no sunscreen.
  3. It is important to ensure that sunscreen is applied at least 20 minutes before sun exposure and reapplied every 2-3 hours. It is the best gift that you can give your skin.
  4. Use of sunscreen should not be limited to the face. Neck, hands and other parts of the body which are exposed to the sun also require sun protection.
