Lotus Herbal Indian Summer Formula Sun Block Cream Spf 30 Review
Hello beauties.. how have you been? I recently visited a dermatologist and he strictly recommended me to use a sunscreen as my fading acne spots were getting darkened and he warned me that exposing them to direct sunlight would worsen the problem. I agree, my sun block had run out and I was feeling too lazy to buy a new one but after getting a good reprimanding from my doc. I picked up this one from, Lotus herbals as I had heard, they make some good sunscreens.
It is essential to use sun blocks as they act against a shield against the UV rays and prevents the melanocytes from becoming overactive. Sunblocks are also important to prevent the ageing effects of the harsh sun rays on the sun. I bought this with a lot of expectations as many friends told me that the 3 in 1 variant is good.. I was quite hopeful that this one would turn out good as well. I will not call it a dud product but it did not satisfy me much. So, I am not very much in favour of repurchasing it.. Read on for a more detailed review…

My experience with Lotus Herbal Indian Summer Formula Sun Block Cream Spf 30
The cream is white in colour and smells fresh. It is a somewhat typical smell of sunscreens. There is some issue with the formulation, in the sense that it does not spread evenly on face and I really have to put in efforts to spread it uniformly across my face. It does not immediately get absorbed into my skin. You need to spread it across your face and then allow it sometime to seep in completely say around 15 minutes. Then, I need to use a tissue to blot the excess to avoid my face from looking too shiny. After that however, it does not make my face look greasy.
It gives sufficient sun protection and has prevented tanning from progressing, for me. As per the claims, it protects against UV A & UV B, both. I have not experienced any breakouts with this product.
Whether I would recommend this product again?
Overall, though the results are fine and it has prevented tanning on me…I did not find it comfortable to use. So, I am going to go back to my Jovees sunscreen as soon as I finish this tube.
