Another sunscreen review. Sunscreens are my favorite products when I think to try a new brand for the first time. If it makes me happy, I become sure that the brand is going to take place in my daily skincare. That’s what happened to Dr. Sheth’s Basic Brightening Daily Sunscreen SPF 30|PA+++.
As you all know that applying sunscreen is so important to get rid of numerous skin issues like inflammation, aging signs, hyperpigmentation and even skin cancer. You need this at indoors as well. To protect the adverse effects of UV rays, atleast SPF 30 is what you need to apply.

Those are the days, when a sun protection product was meant to be heavy or greasy and pore-clogging. Even, in my case it would give so much of sweating, I felt like skipping sometimes. But, these next gen formulations are much different. You can pick up according to your skin types and concerns. So much so, they’ll provide some additional benefits like moisture, radiance, luminosity. So, you can’t give any excuse protecting your skin from sunlight. Well, read on for my tried-and-tested one before going to buy a new sun protection product.

I purchased this product from Dr. Sheth’s as all their products are specially designed for Indian skin. The people of India has to face the myriad of toxic air pollutants, dust, UV rays that make our skin more pigmented, sensitive, inflamed. So, we need a special treatment that’s exclusively formulated with the active ingredients to protect, repair and moisturize our skin naturally.

It provides an extreme matte finish which absorbs instantly with minimal white cast. Mineral filters like Titanium dioxide and Zink oxide work with organic filters to prevent UV rays reaching the skin. Licorice and Sunflower extracts repair and brighten while reducing pigmentation.

This combination of mineral and organic sunscreen, provides broad-spectrum protection as well as fights de-pigmentation. It gives a fresh, matte finish that you’re going to love.
First pour the required amount on your palm, massage the SPF 30 into your skin and it actually disappears after few seconds giving you a hydrated, dewy look. And, it doesn’t leave any annoying white cast while rubbing in.
The packaging is also pretty compact and portable. It’s housed in an amber coloured plastic bottle with pump dispenser. This spillage proof packaging has all the necessary information about the product. The bottle easily fits in your purse. You can carry with you to re-apply every 3 hours.
It’s a lightweight sunscreen with a pleasant smell. If you are sensitive to strong scents, this is for you then. I don’t feel heavy or greasy post application. So, you can comfortably wear under makeup.
And, what I love the most is its skincare benefits. Every time I wear it, my face brightens up instantly. The bonus is that this preparation helps smooth out uneven texture, reduces inflammation and keeps me hydrated as it shields. Yet, I don’t know whether it’s water-resistant or not as I never swim wearing this.
