I love taking my sunscreens out for a spin because according to me, outdoors is the best place to judge the true effectiveness of any sunscreen. So for the last couple of weeks I have used it while travelling from home to work in the local trains, at my weekend getaway to a camping farm and on a road trip on a lazy Sunday afternoon. All these 3 experiences have given me enough experience to review Richfeel SunShield with SPF 30.

My Experience of using Richfeel SunShield with SPF 30
My skin is very different from what it used to be when I first started this blog. Back then, my skin used to be the Sahara desert, dry and patchy and I would prefer heavier products that would not only protect me from the sunrays but also nourish my skin. These days, my T zone has started getting oily while the rest of my face continues to be dry. That is why; my preferences have changed and these days I opt for lighter sunscreens. The sunscreen comes in a flip top tube packaging which is convenient to carry around.
It is a little too heavy for my liking and on hot, sunny days, it starts to run off your face if you don’t give it enough time to settle. On the days when the weather is pleasant, slightly nippy or cold, this sunscreen is perfect for me.
It will last you for one and a half hour when you are outdoors but I recommend that you try and reapply it every hour if you are out in intense heat. If you are mostly indoors, you can leave this on for three hours and then reapply it. It definitely fulfills its promise of protecting you from the sun but it does not have lightening effect nor does it reduce your marks as it claims.
On the whole, I think people with combination skin should to use this during the winters and avoid it in during the summers. If you have dry skin, this product is ideal for you.
