Raise your hands if you are lazy when it comes to applying sunscreen! I am sure that at least half my readers have their hands raised high. Personally, I have been extremely religious at applying sunscreen on my face over the past few years, but am super lazy when it comes to slathering sunscreen on my body. On most days, this is OK, because I spend most of my day indoors, but when I am on vacation, I need my body to be protected, and crave for an easy way to apply sunscreen. When I received the Nivea Sun Protect & Refresh Invisible Cooling Spray in a PR package recently, I was excited to test for myself whether this could be that easy to apply sunscreen that everybody craves. Here are my thoughts on this product after using it on numerous occasion.
Sun exposure is one of the biggest contributors to skin damage and can cause tanning, dullness, and dryness too. However, venturing out in the sunlight is something very inevitable for most of us and, in fact, it comes with its own set of benefits (Vitamin D). This is why I recently purchased the Nature’s Co Aloe Vera After Sun Gel that offers relief from sunburns and cools down the skin post sun-exposure.
This product is an orange colored gel that smells like apricots and has a slightly sticky texture. It spreads on the skin quite easily and gets absorbed within a few minutes, and the stickiness disappears after 5 minutes or so. It provides a cooling sensation upon application that relieves the skin, and it also prevents tanning to a certain extent. My only complaint is that the product has a very liquidy consistency and therefore things can get a bit messy if you are not careful. Perhaps a jar instead of a tube would have been a more suitable option for the packaging.
Overall, I am quite impressed with the quality of this product because it delivers what it promises and does not make any false claims. The fact that it is made with natural ingredients such as aloe vera gel, peppermint extract, and bearberry extract, adds to its appeal. A 125ml tube of this product is priced at INR 425, which is quite good because I feel that one tube will last me the whole summer. I would highly recommend using this product, in conjunction with a sunscreen, to minimize the damage to your skin this summer.
