Being in Delhi, my biggest concern is summers leading to tanning, sunburns and I have used loads of sunscreens but at the end of the day, I always came home all tanned and this is why I avoided going at a place which is exposed to sun especially water parks. A year back, I adopted using the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ and today I am going to share how it worked for me.
Product Description: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ (PA+++) is a breakthrough in sun protection. Stabilized with Helioplex, it provides superior balanced broad-spectrum protection against skin-aging UVA and burning UVB rays, and combines it with Dry Touch technology for an ultra-light, non shiny finish. This lightweight sun block has a light fresh scent and is gentle enough for even sensitive skin.
* Waterproof, sweat proof, resists rub-off
* Non-comedogenic (wont clog pores)
* Oil free and PABA free
Price: Rs.499 for 88ml.
Availability: Buy it from Flipkart here.
Directions: Apply liberally on body 15-20 minutes before sun exposure. Re-apply frequently to maintain protection especially after sweating, swimming, towel drying or extended sun exposure.
Packaging: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock comes in a squeezy white and blue tube with a sky blue screw round cap which closes tight enough to avoid any mess. The hole on the top of the tube is neither too big nor too small which dispenses appropriate quantity every time. The tube comes sealed with an aluminum foil. Behind the tube, you will find every minute detail about the product. The tube further comes housed in a plastic box of which I could not click a picture because it was in bad condition when it came.
My Experience: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock has a cold cream like texture and is white in color. It easily gets absorbed into skin leaving a glow behind though it fails to give a perfect matte finish. Yes, the claim that it is shine-free is not true. You can even see in the picture below the slight shine this sunblock imparted me after swatching it on my hands although it did not feel oily or sticky. Even a little quantity is enough to apply on your face and if you overdose, you will certainly find it heavy for your face otherwise it feels light on skin. When you head out with this sunblock on, within few hours you will start sweating too and this is why oily-skinned beauties might not like it. Coming to the tanning part, this sunblock is the best one I have come across to avoid tanning. I have used lots of sunscreens but all of them failed to impress me as much as this sunblock did. It even works under water and yes it is water & sweat proof. You might fight it expensive but as I told you a little goes a long way and it is worth this price for the results it give.
