My experience with Lotus Herbals Safe Sun Intensive Sunblock Spray SPF50:-

The Lotus Herbals Safe Sun Intensive Sunblock Spray SPF50 is a white colored liquid with water like consistency. However, it can’t be used as a facial mist unlike facial sprays. You will need to spray 2-3 pumps on palms, spread it and then apply it on face for an even application. It feels greasy and heavy on skin and need to be massaged well to get absorbed completely into the skin.

You can’t afford to apply it in excess as it will make you look like a shining star.(1000W bulb). It provides slight moisturization to my skin but I wont recommend this to oily or combi skin as it might make look like an oil factory.

It works well on my dry skin till it is applied in right amount else it is not going to spare me from that sticky feel and a shiny ball. I like it better as body sunscreen due to its liquidy texture and moisturizing properties.

Pros of Lotus Herbals Safe Sun Intensive Sunblock Spray SPF50:-

  1. Has mild herbal smell. Something “leaves” kind but nothing that bother me. However, sensitive noses may not like the smell.
  2. It has a runny water like consistency and hence easy to apply
  3. Provides effective sun protection with High SPF(SPF-50) and UV rays protection.
  4. Has slight moisturization property which makes it a good body sunscreen. You can skip the moisturizing your hands and legs before applying this. Hence, makes a good body sunscreeen
  5. Hygeinic and convenient to use Spray bottle packaging
  6. The bottle will last really long.
  7. Decently priced like other Lotus products
  8. Lotus products are easily available everywhere and not tested on Animals

Cons of Lotus Herbals Safe Sun Intensive Sunblock Spray SPF50:-

  1. In spite of its watery consistency it feels heavy on facial skin and leaves a greasy film on application. My dry facial skin starts getting oily as the day proceeds.
  2. It makes me look dull and dark, when applied in excess.
  3. Won’t be a good choice for oily-skinned people as it may make them look like a shining ball.
  4. It claims to be sweat and water proof but it does sweat me out.
  5. Contains Parabens

Recommendation:- The market is flooded with sunscreen/sunblocks and with the launch of new sunscreens from Lotus Herbals with higher SPF I think Lotus Herbals Safe Sun Intensive Sunblock Spray SPF50 is quite skippable and not a must have due its greasy and heavy texture. I won’t recommend this as a facial sunscreen but can protect hands and legs from the harmful sunrays without pinching our pockets. It makes a good body sunscreen. As facial sunblock I like its 3-in-1 matte SPF-40 sunblock.


Rating:- 2.8/5
