UPDATE: 10th Dec 09
It seems that since I wrote this post, a lot of companies just flooded the market with multi-functional sunscreens.
So now if you are finiky like me and looking for a low spf sunscreen, you can reach out for
1. Maybelline White Stay UV Compact with spf 8
2. Ponds Age Miracle Tinted Moisturiser with spf 15 (My favorite in the lot)
3. Streetwear Crystal Shine with spf 15
4. Nivea lip balm with ambigious spf
Basically you get my point. If it is low spf protection you need, a sticky sunscreen lotion is not necessary anymore. Using Ponds has made my life easier as now I get sunscreen protection in my moisturizing foundation!
I hate Sunscreen!
There, I got it out of my system. I know, I have read all there is about Sun exposure & how it is a sin to step out without wearing one & yaada, yaada..
But it just looks yucky! I have tried brands like Garnier, Lakme, Lotus & Biotique (this was the least offensive of the lot) & just hate the oily feeling they leave you with.
The sunscreen just sits on my face like a layer attracting dirt & results in pimples. Besides it makes me sweat like a pig! so all of it comes off anyway when i keep wiping my face.
My solution: Lotus Suncreen Facewash. Atleast something goes on.
Other than that, I apply sunscreen only under extreme duress.
What Cardinal beauty sin are you commiting?
