These days, sun protection is considered to be the most important part of skincare. Neglecting this part not only wreaks havoc on our skin but also take a toll on our overall health. But most commercial sunscreen lotions or sunblock creams cause issues like heavy sweating, awkward white cast, etc. That’ s why I’ve come up with this review today. The Lotus Herbals Safe Sun Sun Block Cream (SPF 30, PA++) is one of the most popular suncare solutions available in the Indian market. Read on to know more about how it worked for me.

The sunblock cream comes in a bright orange-colored tube, which is very easy and convenient to use. It has a flip open cap and it closes securely. The entire casing is made of good quality, sturdy plastic and all necessary information regarding the product is mentioned on it. I carried it around and it did not spill at all. Hence, the packaging is pretty travel-friendly. However, being an opaque packaging, it does not allow us to see how much of the cream is left inside.
Look And Feel:
The cream is neither too runny nor too creamy. It glides over the skin smoothly and gets absorbed into it quickly. Most importantly, it forms a thin layer on your skin rather than a thick one. It clearly means that you can feel it but you cannot see it. It also gives a super matte finish, which I totally love. The smell of the product is pleasant. It’s not disturbing or overpowering. It won’t stay long anyways so you don’t have to worry much about it.

What The Product Claims To Offer:
Lotus Herbals Safe Sun Sun Block Cream (SPF 30, PA++) shield your skin against harmful solar radiations by providing active triple protection. It consists of black plum extract, which is astringent and moisturizing in nature and titanium dioxide present in the cream helps in blocking the solar radiations physically. The cream prevents sunburns, tanning, premature aging, and wrinkles. It can be applied to all body parts and is ideal for both men and women.
My Experience About The Product:
I had bad experiences with sunscreen lotions before using Lotus Herbals Safe Sun Sun Block Cream (SPF 30, PA++). Every time I used a so-called ‘effective sunblock’, it either made my skin oily or left a white cast or, in the worst case of scenario, caused rashes. With all such horrible experiences in my basket, I used to avoid sunscreen lotions or sunblock creams completely. But recently, I had to go for 2-day trekking and I had no other option than to carry sunscreen with me in order to prevent the scorching heat from damaging my skin. So, with a heavy heart, I got this one and eventually fall in love with it.

I applied this sun protection cream to my face on Day 1 and, to my surprise, I neither got tanned nor felt any kind of burning sensation. Initially, I was worried about getting clogged pores but I have been using it daily and never faced any problems yet. It settles on the skin in a thin layer and gives a matte finish. The finish is very good and it doesn’t leave a white cast behind like other sun protection creams.
You don’t need too much cream to cover all the exposed areas of your skin. A small quantity of product is enough for hands and legs. For me, this tube will last for 4 months easily. Regarding the anti-sweat properties, I think it stands pretty much up to the mark. I did not have any sweaty or greasy feeling during any of my use. However, it is not as much waterproof as it claims to be. I need to reapply it whenever it gets washed out with water. They also have another variant of SPF 70, which is best suited for intense summers.
How To Use:
Apply Lotus Herbals Safe Sun Block Cream liberally and evenly on face and exposed parts of the body before exposure to Sun. The cream will not get washed/wiped with water/sweat.
