Disadvantages /cons

Before writing down its drawbacks, I want to tell you that the first disadvantage of this cream is that sunscreen is meant for oily skin. But if you have oily skin, then do not use this sunscreen. But, if you have dry skin, this sunscreen will be best for you, so let’s know about its disadvantages.

  • Not suitable for oily skin.
  • False claims.
  • This is a chemical-based sunscreen.
  • It is not good in summer.

Piramal Lacto Calamine Sunscreen Spf 50 Review and My Own Experience

Since childhood, I have used Lacto Calamine Lotion, and it has been very beneficial for me. So I thought I should also try Lacto Calamine sunscreen once. The biggest drawback of this sunscreen, or shall I say, this cream which claims that it will be better for people with oily skin, is wrong.

Do not buy this sunscreen if you have oily skin. But yes, if you have dry skin, then you must use this sunscreen. It has a significant effect on dry skin.

You have to apply very little moisturizer before using it, but there is no need for moisturizer in summers. It gives your skin a natural glow after some time of application. It does not leave any greasy and patchy look on the skin. And most importantly, it protects your skin from UVA/UVB. But the other thing is that it is a chemical sunscreen. The biggest drawback of chemical sunscreen is that it loses effectiveness if used excessively.

Overall, it is excellent for you if you have dry skin,  pocket and travel friendly and gives glowing skin. Suitable for winters, avoid it in summers. Big No! For oily skin.
