VLCC Surya Sandal Sun Block Lotion SPF 20 Review

VLCC is one brand that has a hit and miss list of products. There are few of their products that I hated like crazy and there are few I loved a lot. I had always preferred lotion base sun blocks due to my oily, acne prone skin but when I got this sample with one of my online purchases, I was really tempted to try it out. Today I am going to discuss my experience with VLCC Surya Sandal Sun Block Lotion SPF 20.

VLCC Surya Sandal Sun Block Lotion SPF 20 comes in a sturdy, bright yellow tube packaging with a screw on lid. The full sized product has got flip open lid which is very convenient while traveling. The packaging is quite lightweight and can be easily carried around in a bag without any fear of leakage or spillage. The color of the packaging is quite bright and it really stands out among all products on my vanity. The lotion is light yellow in color with a strong sandalwood fragrance. If you are not fond of heavy fragranced product then this one might not impress you.

The texture of the sun block is soft and smooth with runny consistency. It spreads easily and gets absorbed quickly without leaving a greasy residue behind. It is quite moisturizing and I don’t feel the need to moisturize my oily skin prior application. It has been instructed by the company to apply sun block 10 minutes before any sun exposure. The sun block makes my skin soft, smooth and radiant. It does not make my skin oily for a good 3-4 hours. I usually set it with powder to ensure longer stay of the product. It doesn’t feel heavy or give whitish cast to my face unlike other sun blocks. I have not faced any adverse effects whilst using this sun block. As I do not spend prolonged periods in the sun, I have not faced major tanning issues. The sun block is meant to be reapplied frequently. I usually wipe it off with a tissue or wipe before reapplication.

Overall I am really happy with the results and would recommend it to everyone.
