Oriflame Sun-Zone Sunscreen (UV protector Face & Exposed Areas).

Sunscreens are a must-have! This scorching heat literally kills our skin cells & causes so much damage. Never ever step out without your sunscreen on, no matter how late you're getting! 
Note: This is a PR product. Send to us for use & review. But this in no way will alter our opinion about it. We will put forward our 100% honest reviews for our readers.

What does Oriflame say about this product?
Effective high protection for sun-sensitive skin. Formulated with softening and moisturising actives. Fast-absorbing texture. Water-resistant. 50 ml.







Review: 

This sunscreen comes in a 50ml white coloured tube, with orange cap. It has Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 50, which is pretty good. Product claims to be dermatologically tested so I believe it's safe for people with sensitive skin too. 

The consistency of the product is not entirely creamy I'd say as it tends to get runny at times, so it's between creamy and liquid. The first thing we notice about a product is it's smell, this sunscreen has a mild fragrance to it I'd say. It's not irritating though or bothersome & goes away in a matter of few minutes. 

The product initially after application, does make my skin sticky. So I'd not completely agree with the it's claim that its non-sticky. BUT it does not make my face greasy! So that's a plus point. It later on gets absorbed gradually and settles without much stickiness. I have combination skin type with excessively oily T-zone, so after sometime I can clearly see a shinning nose & chin, but I'd put the blame for this on this awful weather conditions! But in my opinion this sunscreen is not the best option for people with oily skin types. They need something which is more mattifying & more quickly absorbed into the skin. One does not need to moisturise skin after applying this sunscreen since it acts as a pretty good moisturiser on its own. 

The sunscreen does not cause un-neccessary pigmentation on my face. Sunscreens which bring a fake white cast are a major turn off for me. And am glad that this one doesn't fit in that category. Ideal sunscreens should have no pigmentation at all & this product full-fills this criteria.

This sunscreen claims to give protection against both UVA & UVB radiations. What exactly are UVA & UVB radiations? And why is protection against them so important? 
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 UV-rays.
Overall I like this product & would recommend it to people with dry and combination skin types. 

Price & Availability: The product can only be bought through Oriflame representatives/consultants. The product can also be purchased online, from Just4girls.pk. The catalogue price of this Sunscreen is 1499Pkr. Visit the Oriflame website here for further information. 

Points in Favour: 

  • Hygienic & travel friendly packaging.
  • Does not produce any pigmentation.
  • No strong smell.
  • Acts as a moisturiser. (good for people with dry skin)
  • Protects against UVA & UVB radiations.
  • Has SPF 50.
  • Does not make face greasy. 
  • This sunscreen is not just for face but other exposed (hands, arms, neck, feet etc) areas too. 

Points not in favour: 

  • Initially makes skin somewhat sticky.
  • Not suitable for people with oily skin types (in my opinion)
  • Not available at local drug stores.
  • Price is a bit higher.
