Review - VLCC De-Tan Sunscreen Gel Creme SPF 50 PA+++

My Skin Type: Combination to Oily, Sensitive and Acne-Prone Skin

Packaging: It comes in a squeezable plastic tube with a secure flip-flop cap and a nozzle to dispense the product. The packaging is totally travel-friendly and mess-free and has all the Information such as price, date, directions, ingredients, labels and more.

Fragrance: The fragrance is really comfortable. I didn't find it too heavy or something. It has a mild floral-sweet touch to it. I am personally not a fan of fruity, floral or sweet fragrances but this was something nice and easy on senses.

Colour and Consistency: It is white in color and texture is just like a cream. I won't say it is thick cream but it wasn't runny or gel-like in consistency either. Was easy to apply and massage on skin.

My Experience with VLCC Sunscreen Gel Creme SPF 50 PA+++

I simply took a pea-sized amount and applied all over my face after cleansing and toning my face. It is hard to find a sunscreen which feels light and nice on my oily skin. When this sunscreen absorbed onto my skin easily without making many efforts, without leaving stickiness or white cast, I was like wow! I found one. It doesn't make my skin oily, sticky, greasy, or watery at all and gets into the skin so nicely. It isn't feather like lightweight but isn't heavy or uncomfortable at all.

It claims to brighten up the skin and enhances glow. I can't say much about the glow but dude, it seriously gives an instant boost of brightness. There was no-doubt noticeable brightness. The effect doesn't stay for the whole day but yes, it stays for good 4-5 hours I guess. Coming to de-tanning, I don't have much tanning problems so I can't say if it actually reduces tan over the time.
It moisturizes at the same time. I didn't feel any need to go for another layer of moisturizer. But during days when my skin felt little dry or patchy, I applied my Himalaya Youth Eternity Moisturizer before this sunscreen and I didn't feel heavy at all. If you have dry skin, you might want to use another layer of moisturizer, or maybe not. 😄

I used it underneath my makeup too but because I have oily T-zone, sunscreen was a bit heavy for me. This no doubt, worked great alone as it has moisturizer but with makeup, nope! So currently, I simply go for my Himalaya Youth Eternity Moisturizer underneath my makeup as it is a light moisturizer for me.

Everything was going well but, I noticed I am having some clogged pores on my cheek area and I had no clue why. There was minor breakout too but I am not sure if it is the sunscreen or anything else. I stopped using everything else thinking one out of them might cause this but I didn't think that I am having these because of VLCC De-Tan SPF 50 sunscreen because everything was going on good. After giving it a break, I simply used my acne creams, followed my weekly exfoliation and face pack routine and they were gone. Like seriously, I didn't face any skin rash or reaction but it gave me clogged my pores. I did a little research and got to know other people too faced this problem with VLCC Sunscreens. I guess VLCC Sunscreens are comedogenic
So if you have a history of getting clogged pores or breakouts easily or have sensitive skin like me and there are chances that product won't suit you, don't go for this. Because believe me, it takes a lot of time in getting rid of that. A good weekly exfoliation and face pack routine is a must. A toner too if your skin is habitual to it. I will recommend ACNES Soothing Toner if you fall into my skin type that is oily, sensitive and acne-prone skin. Even after following my routine, this sunscreen clogged my pores. So, I am not using this anymore on my face.

In short,
VLCC De-Tan Sunscreen Gel Creme SPF 50 PA+++ is paraben free and easy on skin. The consistency is good for oily skin as it gets absorbed easily without making skin sticky, oily, heavy or watery. It has moisturizing properties as well and brightens up the skin Instantly. But, it is comedogenic and there are chances you will get breakout or clogged pores as I got. So a "No" if you have acne-prone skin.

Pros
  • Paraben-Free
  • Moisturizing
  • High Sun Protection
  • Gets Absorbed Easily
  • No Stickiness or Heaviness
  • Instant Brightness
  • Travel-Friendly

Cons
  • Comedogenic - Gave me Clogged Pores
  • Minor Breakout
  • Not for Sensitive and Acne-Prone Skin

  1. Nice and detailed review. Currently, me too using this sunscreen only. I don't like to use it much for face. But I use it on my body. As its both moisturizing and sun protection. But my tan hasn't improved at all. So detan claims are just false...
