Even though monsoons have set in, the sunlight is very harsh during the afternoon hours. And therefore wearing a sunscreen is a must if you are heading out. I dont usually apply sunscreens because they only make my skin oily and chip chip. To be honest i have used sunscreen just 2-3 times. The moment i felt they make my skin oily i stopped using sunscreens. I usually apply lacto calamine lotion while heading out and now i mostly use the caladew lotion from Ethicare remedies. I love it.
So Last week i got a UV Med Sunscreen gel from the brand Ethicare Remedies. Here have a look.
The sunscreen comes in a yellow coloured tube with a flip cap which is tight enough and that makes the packaging travel friendly. The tube comes inside a cardboard box.
The sunscreen is beige coloured and has a thick consistency. It is cream based and not a gel. It is slightly fragranced nothing overpowering though. Priced at 349rs for 50ml.
Ingredients & Direction of use
First of all the sunscreen is not a gel. Its cream based. I dont know why they have called it sunscreen gel. Again the sunscreen is not tinted. It doesnt gives full coverage. However it spreads easily on the skin & gets absorbed quickly. You dont have to struggle with it. Its extremely light weight and doesnt makes my face heavy. However i felt it a bit oily on my skin. But Nothing greasy type. It doesnt gives a matte finish as claimed by the brand. Again it has fragrance so the fragrance free claim by the brand is also not true. The fragrance though is not overpowering and vanishes after an hour of application. People with dry skin will love it. Oily skin types can give this product a try because its not too much oily. Its a good sunscreen as compared to other sunscreens that i have tried.
