Final Verdict:

I am probably the last one to review this,the reason being I wasn't sure if I wanted to try this since most Lakme products are comedogenic.I saw the ingredients and its surprisingly non-comedogenic:-O.So I went ahead and bought and I have been testing out from last 2 weeks.I hate these summers because oily skin folks have tough time coping with this weather#:-S .So lately I am on the look out for matte products.This whole month I have been experimenting with a couple of sunscreens.This is a very good sunscreen,does not leave any oil or white cast residue. I am loving the matte-effect on my super oily skin:x.Undoubtedly it is a good sunscreen but I am disliking the unreasonable price hikes by all these brandsX(.But I am happy finally brands in India are finally recognising the need for non-comedogenic products for oily and acne prone skin types.:)

My Rating:4/5

Note: The other variant( Lakme Hydrating Sunscreen) meant for normal/dry skin is comedogenic.
