Hey guys, summer is here i thought this is the right time to review some sun screen for you guys. So today i am choosing to review the LOTUS HERBAL SAFE SUN UV SCREEN MATTE GEL SPF 50. First let me clear one misconception this is not a completely herbal sun screen, it contains paraben in it. I have grown up seeing my mom using lotus herbal products so i have pretty much used every product from this brand. I was attracted towards this product by what it claimed, it claimed that its gonna give you a matte oil control ultra smoothing look with PA+++ UVA and UVB protection, plus i have heard a lot of good things about this product from a lot of YouTubers, so i gave it a shot.
Personal Experience :
Firstly the product felt really very sticky on my palm but as soon as i started to apply it on my face it started to get completely matte and non greasy which was really impressive, but the product goes off once you wash your face with water. This product lasted on my skin for more than 2 hours without sweating and reapplication. Overall this felt like nothing on my skin and sits really well under my makeup giving me a complete matte look.
