REVIEW: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Complete UV Moisture Sunscreen with SPF50+ PA+++


Review of Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Complete UV Moisture Sun Block SPF50+ PA+++

Every one of us has at least one deep, dark secret that they don't want the world to ever know... Of course, you too have one... And yes I too have well not one but many... But today, since I am feeling a little risque, I have decided to divulge one of my best kept secrets... So here goes...

I never wear Sunblock. Well, rather, until now I never wore Sunscreen... Yes that's true... Despite being a beauty blogger for over 3 years, I have always steered away from Sunblock...


Well, simply because I have always found applying sunblock a little tedious that is after finding one that actually suits my skin... Many of you would agree with me when I say that finding a sunscreen that actually suits one's skin is tougher than finding a foundation to match! I mean, either some turn out to be too oily or while some too drying and worse still, some leave that ghastly whitish cast behind that you keep struggling with to "blend" in your skin...

And so to do away with all these troubles, I have kept away...


The day I received a Neutrogena PR hamper... Out of the 2 kinds of sunscreens they sent, this Neutrogen Ultra Sheer Complete UV Moisture turned out to be something that I instantly got hooked to... To be honest, I tried this one out first because of it packaging, the Chinese script all over the carton and mostly because I had never ever seen it on any of the drugstore aisles... And boy! Am I glad I tried it :)

Price of Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Complete UV Moisture Sunscreen

It costs INR 349/-

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Complete UV Moisture contains SPF50+ and PA+++ that I bet is pretty much enough to combat the harmful UVA and UVB rays... But realistically lets see what I really liked about the product...

Pros of Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen
1. Completely disappears into the skin on application
2. Does not leave a white cast behind
3. Mattifies your face without being too drying. It did feel a little drying initially but then I started layering it over a face serum and all was well again. And since it is mattifying it is a perfect base for your makeup.
4. Does not cause any kinds of pimples or eruptions or reactions
5. Using it since 3 weeks and I detect no tanning
6. Has a sturdy and sleek packaging and hence very convenient to carry in your bag.
7. Has a very subtle, soothing and a faint fragrance that disappears almost immediately after application.

Cons of  Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen
1.  I think its a little pricey for a sunscreen.
2. Availability could be an issue since I have never seen it anywhere

I am honestly very impressed with this and this is one sunscreen that has converted me from being sunscreen averse... It is a little drying for dry skin but like I mentioned layering it over a facial serum does the trick :)

  1. I didn'y spot it any where. :(. sounds promising :)

    1. I know right! I am thinking of checking for it at my nearest Religare and let you know if I find it there :) ♥

  2. I am using it right now Suma and it is quite hydrating on me. :) My skin is normal to combi though! Totally agree on all the other aspects. Still like lakme 9 to 5 hydrating super sunscreen better. :P

    1. Yeah I think this would be perfect for normal skin ya :)
      I didn't like the Lakme one cause it tends to leave a whitish cast on me :/

  3. great review hun!
    sunscreens are a must in this scorching weather!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
