Sun Off Plus Sun Block.

Hello beautiful readers. How have you all been? We're extremely sorry for writing after days as we are busy with hospital and studies. 
Today I will be reviewing a sunscreen, Sun Off Plus Sun Block.






Product description?

  1. Oil free sun block. 
  2. Sun Protection Factor (Spf) 60.
  3. Maximum protection against UVA/UVB and IR Radiation.
  4. Invisible.
  5. Non-greasy.
  6. Photostable.
  7. Non-comedogenic
  8. Broad-spectrum.



Review:

Sunscreens are the most essential everyday use product. One can skip anything BUT sunscreen, it is so important. It not only protects our skin from dark pigmentations but also from other adverse effects of harmful sun rays like pre-mature ageing of the skin, sun burns, photosensitivity reactions etc. So never skip your sunscreen!

This sunscreen has been my Holy grail sun block since like the past few months. The sun block comes in a 30gm tube. The packaging of the tube is really good. Tube packagings prevent contamination of the product and they are my favourite. In the past I always had trouble finding the right sunscreen for my skin type. Having a combination skin type this has been so far the best for me as it claims to be oil free. And I agree with this claim. It keeps my face oil free for a good four to five hours, but an exception to this is my T-zone which is excessively oily and during these five hours it shines up. But that is okay because none of the other products I have tried can keep my T-zone matte for like this long. The product is not at all greasy and I completely love this quality. Greasy sunscreens make a really bad base for makeup too. 


This sun screen does not make my face look fairer or any darker. It is just invisible, that is it does not give any pigmentation. Sunscreens making our face look lighter than what it originally is turns me off. This product does not at all produce a fake grey or white film on my face. Ideal sunscreens should be invisble and this product fullfills this criteria!

The product claims to be Non-comedogenic. I'm sure you all have heard of this term before, right? Before commenting on this I would want to tell you what exactly does this term mean?

 Comedo-genic: Comedo is a type of a skin lesion, which is the least severe form of an acne which is due to clogging of the pores. Excess sebum production combines with the dead skin cells and at times bacteria and clogs up pores and the result is a comedo! Genic is genesis that is formation.

So basically when a product is labelled as Non-comedogenic it means that this product is least likely to cause you break-outs and acne! Hope that was clear to you all? I would agree to this sun screen being non-comedogenic as I have not experienced any break outs because of this as yet. So if you are someone with an acne prone skin this is your to-go-for sunscreen in my view.

Now you would all be wondering what does a broad-spectrum sunscreen do or means?
Ultra Violet rays that are harmful to our skin our of two types i.e. UVA and UVB. And both are harmful to us. A broad-spectrum sunscreen is designed to protect our skin from both these types of UVrays. 
Also this sunscreen claims to be Photo-stable, meaning its chemical structure is not or nearly not altered by the energy of UV rays.











How to apply?

  • Apply the sunscreen all over your face and neck area at-least half an hour before stepping out in the sun.
  • Do not take out a lot of product at one go. You just need an average amount to cover your entire face. 



Pricing and Availability: I bought this product from Kausar medicos, you can try looking for it at other pharmacies too. Worth 300pkr.
