My Views on Lotus Herbals Safe Sun - Sun Block Cream:

No matter what season/climate it is, i never skip my Sun screen, as i have a very sensitive skin that tends to give rashes and allergy when exposed to Sun directly. So the Sunscreen/Sun Block always comes to my rescue. I have always used the sunscreen lotions from the brand Lotus and i was never disappointed. But this particular Sun block is like a night-mare for me. it comes in the regular Lotus sun-screen packaging with a flip-flop cap. The consistency of the cream is so thick that it does not get absorbed into the skin easily. I have to sit and rub it into the skin for 5-10 mins, then it seems to sink in but leaves a greasy/oily feeling behind. and i absolutely hate it. The product tends to accumulate near the cap and it gets messy. But it does help in avoiding the rashes/allergy to an extent

·        Provides decent sun protection.
·        Nice fragrance.
·        I hate the texture of the cream; it does not absorb quickly.
·        Leaves a greasy finish after application.
·        Does not really moisturize.
·        The product accumulates near the cap and becomes messy.
                                                    Lotus Sun Block applied on Skin

                                     After trying to rub it in normally, see!! it does not get absorbed...

                               After trying to rub it in several times,  it does leave a greasy feeling!!

Rating:  2.5/5

I would definitely NOT recommend this to any skin type, Would recommend the Matte one and Spray one from Lotus any day!!


  1. i hav heard that lotus sunscreens are v nice... now m confused which one to get....

    1. Lotus Snscreens are great Rids.. this ones a dud!!! try the lotus 3 in 1 matte sun block with SPF 40... that ones great...will review that soon..

  2. i also had dis bt nvr used it.... too lazy, actually

  3. looks greasy in last pic:(

  4. yeah Siri... i hate the way it looks on my face :(

  5. I actually love this. Takes me 2 min to rub it in though. But keeps my skin moisturized all day in winters! :) I have combination skin which is slightly dry in winters and oily in summers. Of course I wouldn't use this one in summer even if someone gave it to me for free! :p

    1. hehe..!! yep this is one is good in terms of Sun protection and all... but somehow hate it for the way it looks on me..!!
