Sunscreen Love: Lacto Calamine Sun Shield

 I've been on the hunt for the perfect sunscreen for a while now. I used the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer for ages, but never fell in love with it (always found it a little too greasy), I got to try out the Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defence and LOVED it, but it was too expensive to purchase. Then I tried out the La Roche Posay Anthelios XL and I liked that, too, despite it being just a tad bit greasy and having a funny scent. But my hunt for the perfect sunscreen hadn't ended.
 Until I came across this little guy.

 Now it'd be a bold claim to say that this is The Best Sunscreen Ever, but it's definitely the best among the ones I've tried (minus the Kiehl's, of course).
 The Lacto Calamine Sun Shield is a brilliant facial SPF that isn't greasy, smells decent and is a fraction of the price of other sunscreens! Personally, I'm a fan of most Lacto Calamine products (as granny-ish as that may sound), which is why I was waiting to give this one a go ever since it came out.

  It has a pretty decent SPF 30 with PA++ (whatever that means). It's easy to apply and doesn't feel tacky on the skin at all on me. I even like the packaging of this one. Very sleek. Well done, Lacto Calamine!
 All in all, if you're a fan of the regular Lacto Calamine range and have been looking for a new sunscreen, I'd definitely recommend this one. 
It retails for 199 INR, but you can get it online for even cheaper than that.

Do you have a favourite sunscreen?

(Oh and btw, whilst you're reading this, I'm somewhere up in the north of India, far away from the scorching heat of the city. Still carrying my sunscreen though.)
