Neutrogena Fine Fairness Lotion SPF 30 PA ++ Review
What it claims: Fine Fairness Lotion SPF 30 provides long lasting hydration while reducing the appearance of melanin and uneven pigmentation. Infused with HealthyWhite™ Complex and light diffusing minerals, this daily whitening moisturiser delivers an even, translucent skin tone.
Price: Rs. 250 for 50 ml bottle
1.SPF 30 protection (UV-B) & PA ++ (UV – A) protection in a lightweight lotion, this absorbs into my skin instantly and feels very light, I don’t break out in the beads of sweat that I experience with other sunscreens.
2.Highly moisturizing – I don’t feel the need for a moisturizer the entire day, it moisturizes for a good 9 to 10 hours.
3.It has light diffusing minerals (you’ll see the lotion glistening when you apply it) that act as a subtle illumination lotion for the skin giving it a very healthy glow , plus my makeup goes on smoothly on top – none of that irritating balling up that happens with some sunscreens.
4.The packaging is very sanitary – the lotion is dispensed through a pump bottle plus there is another cap to cover the nozzle opening.
5.I have been using this for 3 weeks and I have noticed that it has made my skin tone more even and also lightened my acne scars (I recently suffered a major acne outbreak – I always get scars when my acne heals – even if I don’t burst them) – also it didn’t make me break out. Acne scars have not faded completely, but are comparatively much lighter. (But these were all fresh acne scars – I don’t know if it is equally effective on all acne scars)
1.Leaves a major white cast on the face if you apply too much or don’t blend it in well. Luckily for me, my lakme compact is a tad yellow and a shade darker, so it does help me deal with the white cast somewhat – I think the reason for the white cast is the sunscreen in this lotion. I feel it is best to avoid this lotion, if you might be photographed – you don’t what to look like a white ghost.
Will I repurchase: Yes.
I was looking for a replacement for my daily SPF 15 sunscreen, as I was advised to bump it up to 30. Most of the sunscreens I tried were very thick & sticky & didn’t feel so good on my skin. I have dry skin, and this not only moisturizes well – but also combines the benefits of a good sunscreen. I generally top it up my Lakme compact and the combination seems to be doing well.
