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. I wonder if it's waterproof?

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

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

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 & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.
