Product: Lakme After Sun Gel
Promise: Promises to lighten sun tan, cool and moisturise skin and correct uneven skin tone
Reviewer’s skin type: Normal to oily
Pros: The yellow-coloured bottle is very handy, something that you can carry easily in a purse or a handbag. The best thing about the gel is that it spreads beautifully over the skin surface, so you don’t need huge amounts while applying. The cooling effect of the gel is remarkable and it leaves the skin feeling hydrated.
Cons: The gel is advised to be used daily, post exposure to the sun — making this regimen difficult, since these products are usually used before stepping out into the sun. The cool effect of the gel is also short lived.
Verdict: Use the product for its cooling effect on tanned skin, that’s where its strength lies. It may correct uneven skin tones only if it’s used over a long time.
