Shahnaz Husain Nano Sunscreen Gel SPF 20 Review

Hi Everyone,

I am not really fond of Shahnaz Husain products because they never really suit acne prone skin plus most of the products do not have full ingredient disclosure as well.I was browsing on Amazon and stumbled upon this sunscreen.As you all must know by now I am prefer gel based products so thought I would it give it try.Some of you guys were finding it difficult procure Sunprotek Gel Sunscreen plus its expensive so thought I will try it out and see if its suits oily-acne prone skin.Read along to find out more about it.

10)Easy availability.


1)It is loaded with parabens.

2)It contains dimethicone.

3)SPF 30+ would have been better.

Final Verdict:

This particular sunscreen is definitely surprise product from Shahnaz Husain.I didn't expect it to be good.Its a pretty budget sunscreen for oily-acne prone skin.It is gel based,non-comedogenic,moisturising sunscreen.But the disadvantage is SPF 20 is low which is not sufficient for outdoors, though it is suitable for indoors.It does not make my skin oily or break me out so it will be good option for upcoming summers.I also did not like that it is loaded with tons of parabens.Overall a good budget sunscreen!

My Rating:4/5
