Final Verdict:

I haven't had good experiences with Lotus Herbals products so I stayed away from it.When I was hunting for a gel based sunscreen,I found this one.I went through the ingredients since it did not contain major comedogenic ingredients,so I decided to try it out.This is one of the best sunscreens I have used till date!It does not leave any white cast or oily residue.I love the matte finish,which is so required for oily skin types especially during summers.#:-SI don't know how I missed this earlier,I am totally loving this sunscreen!:P

My Rating:4.5/5

Note:There are many versions of Lotus sunscreen available,packaging is also same.So please read the label " UV Screen Matte Gel SPF 50" for Normal/Oily skin.
