I admit I’m not the most diligent when it comes to using sunscreen even though I know that’s it’s very important, but I definitely do apply it when I know I’m going to be outdoors, especially in the afternoon.
The Nivea Light Feeling Daily Face Sun Fluid* is a new sunscreen by Nivea. It’s available in two variants, SPF 30 & 50+ (I got the latter). It provides broad spectrum, very high protection from both UVA & UVB rays (did you know that Nivea actually invented SPF?)
What they say: The extra light formula with advanced UVA/UVB filters is quickly absorbed and provides immediate protection from the sun. Go from sun-shy to sun-safe!
I really like how the container looks, it’s small & very easy to carry anywhere, even in your pocket (if it’s deep!). The sunscreen is very runny so it’s important to shake well before use. The nozzle is quite handy to dispense the right amount of product without wastage.
It’s mildly fragranced (it reminds me of Nivea cream) doesn’t feel heavy on the skin at all. Like most sunscreens I’ve tried, it is slightly greasy so overall I need to set it with powder or something so my face doesn’t look like a grease ball. It does give a whitish cast, but remember anything with SPF does that so it’s nothing to be surprised about.
✔ High SPF protection (50!)
✔ Broad spectrum UV protection
✔ Didn’t cause breakouts
✔ Handy, easy to carry
✘ Makes the skin look a little greasy
Price: ₹449 for 50 ml
Rating: 4.5/5 (-0.5 for the greasiness)
This is a very effective sunscreen that is a must carry whenever you’re going to be exposed to a lot of sun. Just writing this is making me dream of a beach vacation. *sigh*
