La shield is an Indian brand and is very well known for their range of sunscreen. They also offer anti pollution gel based sunscreen with SPF 50.The fastest and advised by the dermatologist is the La Shield Sunscreen Gel SPF 40.
La Shield sunscreen gel is fortified with SPF 40 and it offers a broad spectrum protection against both ultraviolet A(UVA) and ultraviolet B(UVB) rays.The sunscreen is very skin friendly and doesn’t cause any irritation to the skin and its free from any kind of chemicals, preservatives, alcohol, color additives and fragrance.
This sunscreen doesn’t clog on to the pores and doesn’t cause any stickiness to the skin. This sunscreen is definitely recommended during harsh summers where the rays of the sun would penetrate and damage the skin.
Why sunscreens are essential?
Our skin is very sensitive and it needs protection from the harmful rays coming from the sun specially during the harsh summers, therefore it is mandatory to apply sunscreen as per skin types just 30 minutes before stepping out of the house. The sunscreen should go deeper into the skin and settle down into skin and create a shield against the sun, this process takes 25-30minutes, therefore it is advisable to apply sunscreen well in advance before stepping out of the house.
What happens when we don’t use a sunscreen?
Sunscreen plays a vital role in protecting the skin, however by not applying a sunscreen can cause various damages to skin. The skin can suffer from pigmentation, breakouts,sunburn and suntan. This is because the texture of the skin is disturbed by the harmful rays from the sun. Therefore using the right sunscreen will always save your skin from the damages caused by the sun.
MY REVIEW ON LA SHIELD SUNSCREEN GEL SPF 40:
This sunscreen comes in a 60g tube and a small amount is needed for the entire face and neck can last upto 2-3months and it is priced at Rs.730/- for 60g. It is slightly expensive but no compromises on the skin, specially a city which has harsh summers and pollution, this is suitable for oily and combination skin because the texture of sunscreen is very smooth like butter and it spreads evenly on the face and neck, it mattifies the face quickly and locks the oil on the face and creates a shield against the sun rays, It is oil free and it is dermatologically tested therefore the sunscreen doesn’t clog on to the pores and neither the dirt settles on the pores.
It is available on nykaa and it was delivered to me within 24 hours, also I would recommend la shield anti pollution sunscreen with SPF 50 for those who travel on daily basis and their skin is exposed to the sun.
HOW TO USE:
After face wash, toning and moisturising, apply an appropriate amount on face, neck and other exposed area of the skin 30 mins before sun exposure.
Overall I am beyond satisfied with this sunscreen and a big thanks to nykaa for having all possible brands and providing a speedy delivery. It didn’t cause any irritation to my skin or any breakout. Those with oily and combination can go ahead with this sunscreen, also I will mention below few other sunscreen for different skin types.
