Shahnaz Husain 8 in 1 Nano Sun Block SPF 60 Review
Hello everyone,Summer is a season where one has to take utmost care of their skin. The harsh rays of the sun can be very harmful to your face. Hence, sunscreen with a good SPF plays an important role. Two months back I purchased Shahnaz Husain 8 in 1 Nano Sun Block. Shahnaz Husain is a well-known brand and a sun block with SPF 60 was worth a try. In my last article I discussed about cuccio natural butter blend papaya and guava which was a steal, do give a read.
Shahnaz Husain 8 in 1 Nano Sun Block is a perfect combination of highly advanced nanotechnology and organic ingredients. It has a SPF 60 which provide protection against harmful UV rays. The ingredients list includes Castor oil, Manjeet, Cucumber seeds, Padmakha, Sunflower oil, Zinc oxide and Titanium dioxide. It moisturizes the skin’s deeper layers, removes tan and gradually lightens skin color. The sunblock is waterproof with a matte, non greasy finish which gets absorbed easily.
329 INR for 100 grams.
It comes in an inverted yellowish orange tube with a flip cap. As expected, picture of Shahnaz Husain is embossed on the tube. The ingredients list and the other details are mentioned on the back of tube. The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly.
The texture is soft and consistency is runny. It is pink in color with a mild fragrance.
Three years from the date of manufacture.

My Experience with the Shahnaz Husain 8 in 1 Nano Sunblock
Shahnaz Husain 8 in 1 Nano Sun Block was a big disappointment. It is one of the reputed brands in India for women and I had high expectations from it. It comes in a bright color packaging with the mentioned 8 benefits on its cover. It has fruity smell which fades away after some minutes. The consistency is a bit runny and may actually spill over if the lid is not properly closed.
First I would discuss about the good points of the sunblock. It is great in giving protection against UV rays with high SPF. It helps in removing tan from the face.
It claims to be non-greasy which it isn’t. I have an oily skin and after application, I started sweating which was kind of weird. It does not give a matte finish instead I felt a whitish film on my face. The sunblock is not easy to blend. You have to literally scrub the face for complete absorption. I have been using since a week and skin whitening claim is complete false.
Whether I would recommend Shahnaz Husain 8 in 1 Nano Sun Block again?
If you have an oily skin like me, never. Others too can skip it.
