Fabindia Vitamin E Sunscreen Spf45 Review

Hi everyone,

     If you have noticed, I changed my blog layout and I am happy to tell you that I have upgraded my blog to a self-hosted blog.  When I started this blog, I never thought that many people will visit my blog and leave comments.  Though the number is few compared to many other blogs, I am happy to have readers for my blog, so thanks to all of you. There are still some changes going in with the setup of the blog at times and so if you come across problems with viewing contents in my blog, kindly be patient, it will get fixed.  You can also let me know by email if there are problems, so I can fix it up.  Ok with that message, let’s move on to today’s review of the sunscreen that I have been using for the past couple of months from Fabindia which is the Vitamin E sunscreen – spf45, I already reviewed cleansing milk from the same brand which you can read here.

     I was using my all time favorite Lotus herbals 3 in 1 matte sunscreen for a long time and it was perfect for my oily combination skin type for the summers in India, though I use it most of the year round except during the colder months when my skin become more combination dry.  But, in Turku, the sun is strong starting from the spring but the weather is lightly cold and hence I need a more hydrating sunscreen.  I have tried a few before and this year I used the one from Fabindia which is the Vitamin E sunscreen – spf45.  The product comes in a white plastic tube packaging which is sturdy but the problem is that the product starts accumulating on the top after few weeks and makes it messy, so you have to clean it up now and then.  I have faced the same problem with few other brands too.  The sunscreen has a slight chemical smell, I am not a fan of the fragrance, but it fades away few minutes post application.  The cream is thick but spreads well and gets absorbed within few seconds.  If you apply more than required, it will take some time to get absorbed but once absorbed, it does not leave any white cast on the skin.  The sunscreen will provide enough moisturization for my skin type and hence will be suitable for oily & combination oily skin people during lightly cold months, but will be rich during summer or hot humid seasons.  It has spf45 which is really good to use it during peak summers or under intense sunlight. But, it is not water or sweat resistant hence you might need to reapply if you sweat a lot and it cannot be used when you go for swimming or other water activities.  If you need a good hydrating sunscreen you can give this a try but the availability is a major issue as it is hard to get hold of it both in stores and online.

Pros:
Lightweight, non-sticky sunscreen that spread and absorbs well

Does not feel greasy

Has SPF45

Does not produce any white cast like some sunscreens

Will be moisturizing for different types of skin depending on the season

Cons:

Has a chemical scent, but that fades few minutes post application

The products start getting accumulated near the opening after few days of usage

Not water or sweat resistant (it does not claim so)

Availability is a problem both online and in stores

    Fab India skincare products have been a hit and miss with me but this sunscreen is surely one of their better products.

    It is really hard to find sunscreens that absorb well cause most them take a lot of time and feel greasy after a while.. Nice review hun xx
