Shelf Life : 3 years
I am not clear about the fact that without adding any preservatives how can a product have 3 years of shelf life. Anyways coming to the performance of the product- I am completely disappointed with it.
It has very strong sandal smell that irritates the nose. I apply sunscreen almost 20-30 mins before leaving the house and this product easily glides in without leaving is patches however what it leaves behind is the awkward greasiness. I have dry skin and within minutes my skin becomes dull and greasy and instead of giving a brightening effect my skin looks dark as doesn’t even allow makeup to stay coz of the greasiness. I felt that my skin is the cause as I have just undergone a delivery but once I changed my sunscreen I saw the difference. However As a body lotion its better
I am sorry I could find anything positive with this product except that it provides better sun coverage for my body instead of face.
- Smell is too strong.
- Before sun tanning it makes my skin look dark
- It’s greasy and attracts lot of dirt.
Using it for my body and waiting for the product to end soon.
Rating: 2/5 (as a body sunscreen lotion)
Recommendation: At your own Risk
