Lakme Sun Expert Lotion Review: Hello, everyone! We all know how much harmful the sun rays can be to our skin. So it is very much essential to use sunscreens before stepping out of the home. We have lots of options in the market for sunscreen. I have picked up one which I am using for a couple of years. My mom bought me this. I use the Lakme Sun Expert, so today I am going to talk about it. My one is for NORMAL to DRY SKIN. So not recommended for oily skin.
Basic Info about Lakme Sun Expert Lotion
What is it for and who is it for?
It very travels friendly, compact, leak-proof. The product is kind of thick and white. Has a very mild and sweet fragrance. Provides enough moisturization to the skin. The product comes in a different variant. I am writing for the Normal to Dry skin, SPF30.
Comes in two sizes.
50 ml- MRP 225, can get at a lesser price from local and online stores.
100 ml- MRP 400, can get at a lesser price from local and online stores

How to use:
It is a bright yellow tube, the cap closes tightly and is a flip open type. I have the smaller size with me. Usage is simple. Just have to press the tube gently to get the product out and put on the palm and apply over face, neck and on hands. It needs to be applied 20 minutes before sun exposure. Before applying any makeup give it some minutes to be absorbed.
My Experience with Lakme Sun Expert Lotion
The pleasant smell wears off after some time. It needs to be massaged well to avoid the whitish appearance and get it transparent on the skin. It provides the matte look and good moisturization. However, it will not provide any fairness as claimed by it. And if you have a combination skin you may get an accumulation of sebum after some hour of application or go under the sun. So it goes more for dry skin people. I apply face powder after applying this sunscreen, which I feel gives better results.

Would I recommend?
Of course for people with dry skin is a good product to use. Stays good especially at indoors. I personally like it as it evens out the skin tone. However, for other skins, I wouldn’t recommend that much as it is not sweat proof.
People with oily skin can go with the other variant that’s for oily skin.
