What the Company claims: Lakmé 9to5 Super Sunscreen is apt for women with very little or no time to layer their skin with multiple products. What makes this new Sunscreen from Lakmé “super” is the fact that it feels great on your skin and does not leave a white patchy appearance. For the first time, a sunscreen by India’s no 1 brand, Lakmé, is giving you dual benefits. Its sheer lightweight formula gets absorbed so easily that it can be worn alone, over a moisturizer or under your Lakmé 9to5 make-up.

The new Lakmé 9to5 Super Sunscreen comes in two variants:
·         Lakmé 9to5 Hydrating Super Sunscreen – for normal to dry skin
·         Lakmé 9to5 Mattifying Super Sunscreen – for oily skin

NORMAL TO DRY SKIN- Lakmé 9 to 5 Hydrating Super Sunscreen + SPF 50 PA +++ : Beautify your skin with nourishing vitamins along with broad-spectrum UV protection.

Mattifying Sunscreen Ingredients:

MRP: Rs.500/- for 30 ml (each) (Buy on Flipkart here)

Both come in a beige colored packaging with a golden cap. Both also have SPF50 PA+++ and UVA/UVB protection.

It has the same lemongrass kinda smell that Lakme’s sunscreens have. Both are white in color..the mattifying one is like a thicker cream and the hydrating one is normal..slightly runny lotion.

I have used either/or/both and in all possible ways..like only this and only that and both in combination too..for my oily T-zone the mattifying..and for rest the hydrating.

Both are non sticky and did not sweat me out or anything like a few sunscreens do..mattifying one needs a lot of blending as it leaves a whitish cast behind.

I have worn it under makeup and there were no issues at all..I love the texture of both of these..mattifying one does really control oil !

Hydrating one also has Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) and Provitamin C which also helps in lightening dark spots, etc.

And the best part is, it helps in controlling tan too..I have been out in scorching heat,wearing this, a few times..and I did not get tanned at all..

Though, I would agree its slightly overpriced..I mean it could have been priced at around Rs.350-400/-

Overall, I would say I like them..how non greasy and light weight they are with the sun protection they offer and protect from tan too. I would recommend the Mattifying one for oily skin and the Hydrating one for dry skin..and for combination skin like mine..Mattifying for summers and Hydrating may be for winters..

    Bhumika can u suggest how is lakme CC creme?? Is ponds BB creme is better??……………I heard CC creme are all in sort of cremes..they also have sunscream effects…

    • bhumika_t

      Hey Ritu, Lakme CC cream is good for oily skin, but has only 2 shades: one light and one dark. No other mid option.Review here http://www.newlove-makeup.com/2013/11/lakme-cc-cream-review-swatches-fotd.html
      Ponds BB also has sunscreen, but again comes in only one shade. Thankfully, the shade suits me well. So I like the Ponds BB cream.

        • bhumika_t

          Yes u can Ritu, but do check out the shade at the counter first, if it matches your skin tone.
