Ingredient Goodness

This sunscreen contains 4 ingredients to titanium dioxide, parsol MCX, avobenzone and octocrylene that provide UVA and UVB protection. Apart from that there are great ingredients like carrot seed oil and turmeric. Carrot seed oil is claimed to provide sun protection but there is controversy too on this. I like the inclusion of turmeric though.

My Experience with Mamaearth Ultra Light Indian Sunscreen

I have emptied 2 tubes of this sunscreen and I had a mini tube prior. I have used it in all weather conditions before penning down my review. As we all know, sunscreen is mandatory in daytime routine. I apply this after moisturizing step. It settles down easily on slightly damp – freshly moisturized skin. Otherwise, it balls up.

Mamaearth Ultra Light Indian Sunscreen is slightly nourishing. If you have oily skin type, please skip moisturizer. This will be enough for you. I notice my t-zone becomes oily after this sunscreen. So, I moisturize my skin leaving t-zone so that I don’t face oiliness. It gives semi dewy finish that I really like. I don’t like flat matte sunscreens at all.

The sunscreen leaves no white caste if it is settled properly. However, it balls up easily if you rub it a lot. Reapplication is a bit tricky. I usually use any face mist to slightly dampen face for smoother reapplication. Best way to apply any sunscreen is to dot it on face and dab it. Leave it for sometime and the white caste will be settled.

Does Mamaearth Ultra Light Indian Sunscreen Live Upto All Claims?

This sunscreen does not provide any glow or reduction in tanning. I do not expect it but these claims are not true.
