Some time back, Lakme India launched the Lakme 9 to 5 Super Sunscreens in two variants- Mattifying and Hydrating, to complete and complement their existing line-up of 9-to-5 makeup products. These super suncreens are said to be great under makeup too!
Price: Rs. 500 each (for 30mL).
About Lakme 9 to 5 Super Sunscreens:
Mattifying variant: Specifically designed for oily skin with oil control benefits, its non-sticky formula leaves your skin feeling non-greasy. SPF 50 PA +++ fights against the harsh UVA and UVB rays to protect your skin from tanning and sunburns. Flaunt your flawless even toned skin this summer!
- Dermatologist tested
- Non-comedogenic (Does not clog pores)
Hydrating variant: Enriched with vitamins, it helps you reduce spots and lightens your skin tone. SPF PA 50+++ keeps you away from tan and sunburns caused by the harsh sun rays. This summer, acquire a nourished, hydrated and even skin tone.
- Contains Vitamin B3 and Provitamin C
- Fights against UVA and UVB rays
Both variants come in these rosy tubes with gold caps, except the bottle of the ‘hydrating’ variant is a little wider than the ‘mattifying’ one, and has a broader base. The tubes have a pump dispenser to dispense the product.
Initial thoughts on the products
Both the sunscreens are white in color, and have a smooth texture. The ‘hydrating’ variant has a lotiony consistency, and the ‘mattifying’ variant has a thicker, creamy consistency. These are both easy to spread. Both have that typical-Lakme, light floral (?) fragrance.
Since I have oily skin, I tried the ‘Mattifying’ variant and it seems to work decently on me till now. It does cast a whitish cast on the skin initially, but it gets light within a few minutes. I’m still testing it for efficacy ‘under makeup’, since that is where the product claims work- under your makeup. Will get back to you guys with the detailed review in a few more days 🙂
Also, at a price point of Rs. 500 for ’30mL’, I think these are a tad expensive 🙁
