Hey beautifuls, hope you are having a great weekend. I am going through a very busy weekend and an extremely hot climate. I go out for a walk everyday, at around 5:30 in the evening. Those who live in Mumbai, know how sunny it is during this time. So, definitely you need a good suncare product to keep you protected. I have been using the Inatur Herbals Sunshield Sun Protection Gel for the past couple of weeks and will be reviewing about that today.

Packaging: Inatutur Herbals Sunshield Sun Protection Gel comes in a transparent with a transparent flip-open cover.
Product: The gel is transparent yellow in colour with a very nice shampoo-like smell and a very light texture.
My Experience: Inatur Herbals Sunshield Sun Protection Gel is endowed with SPF 20 which is a moderate level of sun-coverage. And I like how honestly they have claimed that its coverage actually lasts for 3 hours 30 minutes, unlike other brands who blankly claims on 5-7 hours of sun protection. So, it obviously is not a product that can be used for long time sun exposure. As a gel it has a very light consistency. On application it gets quickly absorbed into the skin and leaves it quite hydrated, but not greasy. However, if you have dry skin, it is not enough moisturizing for you.
Inatur Herbals Sunshield Sun Protection Gel has broad spectrum U.V.protection and is enriched with calendula extracts, which is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It never makes the skin look shiny, as is the problem with most sunscreen, and I personally like the smell. According to me, Inatur Herbals Sunshield Sun Protection Gel does a good job of sun-protection and hydration for oily to combination skin and for not too much sun exposure. If you are looking for strong coverage , this is not for you.
