Summer is here and so is the strong scorching sun and with that comes the skin damage if not taken care of! Well, summer is getting harsher year by year and our defense system has to get better and stronger. Harsh summers call for strong measures! Every year I am on a look out for a sunscreen that has a matte finish and does not clog my pores and protects my skin from sun damage. This year, just at the beginning of the summer I tried out the VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Lotion SPF 30 PA +++ and today I am going to share my experience with it!!
About The Look!
The sunscreen comes in a tube packaging of yellow and white color combination and an orange cap. The tube has all the information printed like the name of the brand, product, key ingredients, featured properties, claims etc and the back has the list of ingredients, directions to use and much more! The packaging is of good quality and is pretty sturdy. Good thing, that the product does not leaks out and is great for traveling!

My views and thoughts about the Matte Look Sun Screen Lotion SPF 30 PA +++!
The first noticeable thing about this sunscreen is its color! It has a pale yellow color as if there is turmeric in it. I then checked the ingredients and I was right! There is turmeric in it. This actually makes this product different from other sunscreens. Not just turmeric as an ingredient, also the color which I have never seen in any sunscreen before. They are all usually white. There is a very mild soothing fragrance which is kind of fruity, I am guessing it’s the Pineapple! 🙂
Coming to the formula and consistency, well it’s again pretty different than others in the market! The consistency is very thick, almost like a thick powdery paste. I was a little skeptical about after looking the thickness. I was worried that it’s going to make me look greasy and cakey and clog my pores. BUT! It does nothing of that sort! OMG! This sunscreen spreads evenly and then gives you a super matte finish! I was stunned to see that because I honestly did not expect it! It dries out almost immediately and stays there for a very long time without any stickiness but I would still recommend you to reapply sunscreen after every 4 hours if you are working outdoors.
It also passed another test of mine! It did not clog any pores and my skin did not break out at all! I was amazed to see that! It really protected my skin from sun damage majorly because it is a broad-spectrum sunscreen, with SPF 30 and PA+++, which provides sun protection for a long duration from both UVA and UVB rays. Now, if you don’t know what UVA UVB rays can do, then, they actually are responsible for skin damaging, darkening and aging. The pineapple extracts in the product kept my skin hydrated all the time. My skin was soft and supple throughout the day with the non-sticky matte finish! I have a combination skin and it worked amazingly well for me. This product is for all skin types, so, no matter what skin type you are, you can certainly go with this sunscreen to keep your skin safe from sun damage! I am highly impressed with this product and the price is so good that there should be no problem getting it.
