This is so far one of the nicest sunscreen available in the market, this product comes under Lakme’s 9-5 range. It’s called as the feather light formula. Let give it a quality check! 

Description : This is Lakme 9-5 hydrating super sunscreen. It comes with a spf 50 with broad spectrum UVA and UVB which is very useful as summers are always harsh. It claims to have feather light formula which I totally agree on. It actually very light and matte. Only a pea size is required for the entire face, if you use more you’ll end up looking greasy. It claims to be feather light. you can add this product easily to daily regime below your makeup.

Overall experience : I just did myself a favour to get this, the company’s claims are true. It’s light weight, it’s hydrating, it’s hardly visible after applying, I can use my CC cream or makeup with no complications. I always prefer higher SPF for more protection so this was perfect as its SPF 50. Totally worth every penny!
