RE' EQUIL Ultra Matte Dry Touch Sunscreen Gel SPF 50 PA++++, Water resistant with Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide: Amazon.in: Beauty

 

Age Range: 25-34
Climatic Conditions: Dry and humid
Skin type/texture: Sensitive skin, gets easily red and irritated
Have been using it for: 2-4 weeks
I use it: Daily in the morning.

 

Experience: The first time I used this, I was blown away by the texture. It has a smooth, velvety, dry touch that is also lightweight and doesn’t feel sticky.

☀️ Although it’s a gel-based formula, it feels more like a soft whipped cream texture. It is non-comedogenic so it doesn’t clog the pores, which makes it especially good for sensitive skin. ⁣ ⁣
☀️ It doesn’t leave a white cast and is not heavy on the skin – perfect for wearing under makeup. ⁣⁣ ⁣
⁣ ✅  This is definitely going to be my go-to sunscreen for a while. ⁣⁣ ⁣

🌦 I haven’t tested this in humid weather yet but I’m looking forward to testing its claims of being sweat-resistant during summers. ⁣⁣

Broadcaster Verdict: It’s a holy grail on my beauty shelf.
Will I recommend it to others: Yes

Experience: What makes it exciting is that the brand is MADE IN INDIA
What it is: 
✔️ A gel-based oil-free formula sunscreen
✔️ Has UVA, UVB & IR protection with PA ++++ rating
✔️ Water Resistant, sweatproof perfect for those living in tropical cities
☀️ Like most water-resistant sunscreens, this one is also heavy on silicone. Formulated with active ingredients like Octinoxate, Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide found towards the top of the list and skin benefitting ingredients like Caprylic triglyceride (combo of coconut oil with glycerin) and Physalis Angulata extract (Indian gooseberry or amla) found towards with the extreme bottom of the list.
Friendly Tips:
🌤  Dry skin types will have to definitely assist this with a good skincare routine prior application to avoid any dry feeling, after.

🌤 Do not rush into wearing sunscreen, wait for your skincare to settle down and then layer your skincare like second skin. Then wait a while before getting your makeup done too.

What I love:
☀️ Blends easily, leaves no white cast and applies seamlessly on the skin.
☀️ Packaged in a tube, makes for easy reapplication and spill-proof travel
☀️ Instantly blurs pores, giving me that even, smooth, velvet photo finish feel and a radiant glow just like any luxurious silicone-based primer
☀️ Wears extremely well under a full face of makeup
☀️ Extremely affordable
What didn’t work for me
☀️ I personally, found this extremely heavy on my skin, I prefer way more lightweight and breathable, lotion consistency sunscreens
☀️ Because of its high viscosity, I was aware at all times that I have a film of sunscreen on my face. Not a fan of that feeling, especially with makeup on. Mind you it doesn’t affect the smooth slick look though in any way.
Overall, this is perfect for those:
☀️ With normal/oily/combo skin
☀️ Looking at improving the feel and appearance of your skin
☀️ Frequently wear makeup, step outdoors, play a sport, holiday
☀️ Looking for a budget-friendly sunscreen
I have tested this out for two straight weeks (indoors, outdoors with and without makeup) Unfortunately haven’t had the opportunity to wear this for my routine swim sessions, as I do with all my water-resistant sunscreens.
Broadcaster Verdict: It’s a holy grail on my beauty shelf.

Experience: I had heard a lot about this sunscreen in 2020 and it made to a lot of people’s favourites, now I can see why it did as it is one of my favourites too! The Re’equil Ultra Matte Dry Touch Sunscreen Gel SPF 50 and PA++++ (which is the highest protection grade for sunscreens) has a velvety texture and feels matte on the skin. There is fragrance (like that of a baby product), which I don’t mind at all, and a little bit goes a long way! It has zinc oxide and titanium dioxide that make it suitable for all skin types, however, I do not recommend it to people with ‘very dry skin’. This sunscreen is perfect for oily, sensitive and acne-prone skin though! My skin is dry/combination and it suited me as well.. again applying a little bit is the key and build it according to how the skin is feeling. Also is a great base for makeup. Overall, the sunscreen is worth every penny, I highly recommend it.

Experience: This is the first time I tried any product from Re’equil and I am just in love with this sunscreen. It’s so lightweight and gets absorbed in the skin very quickly. Plus it gives me baby soft skin and keeps my skin matte all day long😍 never expected something from a sunscreen. It’s totally free from any fragrance and I will highly recommend it if you are looking for a sunscreen which gives you protection from harmful sun rays and yet keep your skin matte and baby soft. Then look no further try this sunscreen out and I am sure you gonna love this just like me. And will highly recommend to oily skin and combination skin people to try this out. It gonna be a blessing for your skin.
Re’equil Ultra Matte Dry Touch Sunscreen Gel SPF 50 PA++++ comes in a cardboard packaging and inside that, you will find the main product in a tube packaging which is quite cute. And on the cardboard, all the information about this Sunscreen is mentioned. What I like the most about this that they are very transparent with their customer and the way they have put all the information on the packet is really good and has is very detailed.

Experience: ✨ First, let’s talk about what’s different in this one that I haven’t found in any sunscreen I used prior:
✅ PA++++(UVA) protection as it has advanced filters.
✅ IR (infrared rays) protection.
✨ It’s a physical/chemical sunscreen with SPF 50.
✨ Texture-In terms of texture because of silicones it’s so velvety it feels like I just melted down butter on my face but it’s not at all greasy or sticky, it gets absorbed quickly and gives a matte finish and it’s not drying.
✨ Doesn’t feel like I have applied anything it’s so lightweight.
✨ Leaves no white cast when blended properly.
✨ Packaging-  Tube, very travel friendly and hygienic.
✨ Non-comedogenic
✨ Suitable for all skin types.
✨ Sweat/water-resistant.
✨ Works perfectly under makeup in fact it gives a beautiful sheen to the skin can work as a primer.
✨ Contains fragrance but it’s not bothersome (last ingredient)
✨ Contains Octinoxate so should be avoided by lactating and pregnant women.
Broadcaster Verdict: It’s a holy grail on my beauty shelf.
Will I recommend it to others: Yes
