My Experience With Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel SPF 50:
The sunscreen comes in a medium orange tube packaging with a clickable cap. The cap is sturdy and the tube is light-weight. It is very convenient to carry around with you without any hassle. Moreover, the tube packaging ensures a healthy and hygienic product for future use. Overall, I loved their packaging. The sunscreen is gel based – it is a translucent gel with a faint white color. However, after application there's no whitish cast leftover my skin and that is a big relief. It has a mild refreshing fragrance but it is not at all overpowering to the nose. In fact, the aroma is soothing.
After the gel is applied to the skin, it gives a faint cooling sensation and soothes the skin, which is great for summers. As the texture is gel based – the product gets absorbed into the skin in no time and blends like a dream. Within seconds, it sets into a matte finish without drying at all. I generally use this sunscreen as a moisturizer for daytime as well. The sunscreen has SPF 50 which is pretty good for Indian summers and protects the skin from both UVA & UVB rays. So, it efficiently protects skin from tanning and sunburn. I noticed less tanning with this product. The sunscreen requires to be applied every 3 hours when exposed to sun. I do not take this as a con as it is the same case with every other sunscreen.
Coming to the skin type, I have mild oily skin with very oily T-zone. This sunscreen would be perfect for normal to oily skinned beauties but dry skin people might need a moisturizer. This is not exactly a con as this sunscreen is meant for oily skin and so the moisture content is less. Moreover, I experienced no breakouts with this one. As far as the price tag is concerned, I would call it justified for the product.

Diva Likes Rating:
There are just handful of gel-based sunscreen products in the market if you do not consider the high-end brands like L'occitane and Clinique. The positives for this product are way too overpowering than the negatives. Hence, I would not mind giving it full marks. The girls with oily skin can happily use this and I gladly recommend this sunscreen from Lotus Herbals to everyone.
