Ponds recently launched their *new* sunscreen range in India. They introduced two variations of this sunscreen. One is with SPF 30 and another one is with SPF 50. Today I am reviewing Ponds Sun Protect Non-Oily Sunscreen SPF 30.
Why we need sunscreen?
Ans: We needs sunscreen to protect our skin from sun’s harmful UV (ultra violet) rays. Using sunscreen products decreases the chances for sunburn, early ageing, black patches and can prevent skin cancer.
What is SPF?
Ans: SPF or Sun Protection Factor is a measure of how well a sunscreen will protect skin from UVB rays, that causes sunburn, damages skin, and can contribute to skin cancer.
What is PA+++?
Ans: PA is a rating system of how much protection you are getting from UVA rays. More + means more protection level from UVA rays.
What is UVA and UVB?
Ans: Sunlight has two types of harmful rays : UVA (long wave ultraviolet A) and UVB (short wave ultraviolet B).
UVA rays absorbed by dermis skin layer (deeper skin layer) and this is cause of ageing, wrinkling.
UVB rays absorbed by epidermis skin layer (upper surface of skin) and this is cause of skin burning.

My Real Experience With This PONDS Sunscreen :
Packaging: Come to first with the packaging of the Ponds Sun Protect Non-Oily Sunscreen. It comes with a bright yellow tube with flip-top cap packaging. Yellow colour tube reminds me of the Lakme sunscreens. This tube is very compact and the cap is very tight. That makes it very travel-friendly. Overall I like its packaging.
Texture: The texture of this sunscreen is cream-based and a very light and because of its non-oily formula it feels so light on the skin. When you are applying o your face it first gives you a shiny finish but after that when it settles down on skin it gives a matte flawless finish. Make sure you do not a layer of too much of product that may feel greasy and sticky.
Smell: Fragrance of this sunscreen is very mild floral kind of. That not bother my nose. Its smell reminds me of the Ponds White Beauty Fairness Cream.
