(I don’t know what all these stuff mean. I blindly went with this product, because I trust my dermatologist)
MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE PRODUCT:
As I previously mentioned, I blindly accepted this product, trusting my derma.
To mention about my skin type. I’ve a very dry skin. Can’t even imagine stepping out without a moisturizer. And my skin is highly sensitive to sun that it gets tanned quickly. I tried almost all sunscreen products, that it would do me some good.. But all of it went in vain.
Luckily I met my friend one day. She was glowing. She told about the derma prescribed creams that changed her skin.. That was when I first stepped to the derma, with blind trust.
Ok let’s take a quick review. It smells pleasant and mild... And am happy that it doesn’t smell chemicals. My derma said that this cream was prescribed even for swimmers… After I started using this cream, I didn’t find any new tans, it didn’t vanish my old tans. The burning sensation that I had while standing in sun was far less... only disappointment I had was, it leaves my skin greasy and makes skin look darker... So I’ve to go on a face wash once I step into office.. And I believe that was the purpose my derma suggested me oil control powder. I used that powder one day, but didn’t like using it, because it leaves a white cast on my face.
- « Makes skin look dark on application
- « Makes skin look greasy
- « Expensive
- « Parabens(am happy on the percentage used)
Am mentioning the pros in the end cause, I’ve only one valid reason why I need it…
- « It’s important that it, “DOESN’T TAN” my skin
- « Worth the cost
- « Travel friendly pack... Doesn’t occupy space.
4. 9/ 5 (-0.1 for the greasy feel) I love this product so much, that I can’t give lesser than this..
WOULD I RE-PURCHASE IT??
Until my derma suggests a better product than this.
P.S: Am not personally recommending this to anyone.. This is a review for people to know how the product is, if their dermatologist has prescribed it for them..
Dermas suggestion for sunny days
· Wear gloves
· Use shades
· Wear socks
· Wash your skin, after exposure to sun
· After a wash, apply moisturizer. Cause the mildest of soaps can also rip oil from your skin.
· Keep yourself hydrated.
