VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Cream SPF 30 Review & Swatch-
After a long period of time I got a product from VLCC. I am not a frequent buyer of this brand but I have heard a lot about their matte sunscreens. Lotus has been my patent brand when it comes to sunscreens. I thought about making a switch to VLCC and I was surprised to find out that they have a huge range of sunscreens with different ingredients even in matte! Finally I got myself VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Cream SPF30. Today I will be reviewing this product for you 🙂

My take on the VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Cream SPF 30-
The sunscreen comes in a plastic tube which has a matte touch. All the product details are written on the packaging. It has a huge orange flip flop cap which seals the sunscreen well and makes it leak proof. The packaging is sturdy and easy to carry.
I expected the product to be in a gel form but it turned out to be creamy, it is white in color with a tint of yellow in it. It spreads easily but requires a lot of rubbing before it is absorbed completely into my skin. It smells nice, resembling almost the pineapple fragrance. The smell is not strong but people with sensitive nose might not like it.
I use a very small quantity of this sunscreen or else I end up like having a ghostly, whitish face! I have super oily skin especially during winters and it is working well for me. It does control sebum to some extent but I definitely reapply it again after 2-3 hours. It does not dry my skin and is extremely comfortable to wear. Overall I think this one is a decent buy from VLCC 🙂
Pros of the VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Cream SPF 30:
- Spreads easily.
- Does not make my skin dry or greasy.
- Good for all skin types.
- Travel friendly.
Cons of the VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Cream SPF 30:
- I prefer gel based sunscreen and this one is absolutely creamy.
- Does not give the complete matte look.

My Rating: 3/5!
Do I recommend the VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Cream SPF 30?
I would still prefer to go for gel sunscreens for my oily skin but if one is looking for a creamy one, then I think this one is a good buy!
