There are days on which I look so similar to Andrew Symonds (the cricketer) that people come up to me for my autograph. No seriously! With sunscreens that leave chalky streaks all your face, how else do you expect me to look? Off late, I have been experimenting with a new sunscreen, VLCC Matte Look Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 PA+++. Does it work for me or do I still look like Andrew? You will get to know in a bit.
About VLCC Matte Look Sunscreen Lotion
Pineapples are full of important antioxidants that work to prevent cell damage by fighting against free radicals. This enzyme-rich fruit helps to keep the skin flexible and firm because it increases collagen synthesis. It contains vitamin C and amino acids and these are all skin-friendly nutrients. VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Cream with SPF 30 and PA+++ is made with a combination of Pineapple extract along with many other natural ingredients, which not only protects skin from harmful UVA & UVB sun rays, but also hydrates the skin leaving it soft and supple. In addition, its non-sticky formula gets absorbed quickly into the skin giving it an even finish.So go ahead, enjoy the Sun!
Price: Rs.315/- for 100g & Rs. 108/- for 30g
The first thing that I noticed and liked about VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Cream with SPF 30 and PA+++ is the fact that they used pineapple as their core ingredient. I have never across any other sunscreen that does the same. The lotion has a mild fragrance that vanishes quickly and it is easy to apply. The sunscreen is thick but spreads evenly. You will have to apply it 20 minutes prior to moving out of the house for best results.
I love the fact that it comes in a sturdy tube packaging which means that I can carry one in my bag easily. I have also worn this sunscreen on days when I have sweated like a pig and surprisingly it does not leave those ugly white marks on my phone or on my face. This is a major plus point for me. The fact that it is paraben free and quite affordable adds on to this sunscreen’s feature. I recommend that you apply it every 3 to 4 hours for best results.
To conclude, I would like to say that VLCC has come with a winner and this sunscreen is something that I would be happy to recommend to all of you.
