What is it and who is it for? VLCC Skin Nourishing Sun Screen is a cream based sunscreen which is light on the skin. It has thin consistency and blends well into the skin. It is suitable to all Indian skin tones and to people aged above 10-12.

Apply it liberally on the face and body 15-20 minutes before getting exposed to the sun. Re-apply if the sun-exposure duration is long.

My Experience with VLCC Skin Nourishing Sun Screen Lotion SPF 40 PA+++

VLCC Skin Nourishing Sun Screen Lotion 5

VLCC Skin Nourishing Sun Screen Lotion – SPF 40 PA+++ (Parabens Free) comes in a sturdy and travel-friendly packing.  I have used it during my college days. It has a very attractive outer cover with decent yellow and orange colors on it.  This sunscreen lotion has a mild fragrance and doesn’t linger on for too long. It is a light and thin creamy texture which doesn’t look heavy or too white on skin and glides on well. I apply it 30 minutes before exposing my skin in the Sun. At first, while applying it looked white, but after blending, it disappeared into the skin and didn’t leave any white cast. It blends in no time and leaves a clean finish on the skin. The formula is very hydrating and moisturizing. It says that it can stay on for long hours, but trust me you’d start sweating the moment the Sun reaches above your head. It stays on for only 2-3 hours.  The sunscreen didn’t have any side-effects on my skin. This formula helped me maintain my regular tan; however, it failed to reduce it. It is not very water resistant, so once I wash my face it comes out like a cream and then I have to apply it all over again. It is not at all recommended for people who have oily skin.

Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?

Yes, I would recommend only people with dry skin to go for the smallest pack initially. I would not repurchase it, but I’ll try another sunscreen under the same range.
