INGREDIENTS OF THE SUNSCREEN
main ingredients :
✔️ Titanium dioxide : it works to protect our skin from both UVA & UVB rays by physically blocking the rays from hitting the skin (by scattering it)
✔️ Turmeric – It is anti-bacterial and hence makes the sunscreen ideal for all skin types as well as for Indian summers.
✔️ Orange Oil: Orange oil’s anti-inflammatory properties are ideal for all skin types. It increases skin’s ability to absorb the cream quickly thus making it oil-free.
✔️ Carrot seed oil – It is a moisturizer as well as a sun protectant. It penetrates deep in the skin and doesn’t leave behind any residue.
PACKAGING OF THE SUNSCREEN
The sunscreen has an opaque tube like packaging with a flip top cap that shuts tightly. The tube is very easy to squeeze and is travel friendly too. It has all the major details printed on it.
HOW TO USE :
Take a pea size amount of cream on your fingertip.Apply dots all over face & neck and massage in circular motion.Massage all over the face & neck till the cream is completely absorbed.
TEXTURE & FRAGRANCE :
The sunscreen is more lotion – like and has a very pleasant herbal fragrance. It is cream in color and gets absorbed really quickly.
MY EXPERIENCE :
Owing to the fact that I sweat out like crazy, creamy sunscreen have been a big no no especially in the humid Kerala climate. The Mamaearth Ultra Light sunscreen does stand true to it’s name and is super light indeed. It has a subtle cooling sensation on skin and makes it super soft too.
It isn’t the gel type water based sunscreen but the lotion consistency is pretty easy to work on especially when the SPF rating is as high as 50 (usually the higher the SPF, the thicker the sunscreen will be).
Despite being cream on color, the sunscreen doesn’t leave behind any noticeable white cast on face and you can easily replace your moisturizer with this underneath makeup. That said, I still find it a bit oily for sweaty humid climate and oily skin (like in my case) so I use it mostly as body sunscreen only.
To summarize :
✔️ Toxin – free formulation from a certified safe brand with an impressive ingredient list
✔️ UVA UVB dual spectrum protection with SPF 50 & PA+++
✔️ Specially formulated for the Indian weather and skintone.
✔️ Gentle and non irritating on skin
✔️ Makes skin instantly soft so can double up as a moisturizer too
✔️ Non sticky and almost non greasy
✔️ Gets absorbed really quickly without any white cast
✔️ Suitable for all skintypes and all genders.
✔️ Easily available online (mamaearth website and soon on Amazon)
❌Pricey at ₹499 for just 80ml.
❌Non suitably for extremely oily skin as it may cause sweating.
Overall, I’m glad to see that we have brands like mamaearth that cater to the particular needs of the Indian weather and skintone. If you want a heavy duty sunscreen that does the job well and with a clean ingredient list, do checkout the Mamaearth Ultra Light Indian Sunscreen. You’ll like it!
