MY EXPERIENCE:
   Sunscreen is necessary in summer and more imprtantly necessary in winters too as the rays will be more harmful during winters. So I do stock sunscreen round the season no matter what season it is. These days to have high SPF is much important too. The higher the SPF, the high the sun protection. I do try different sunscreens to match my skin type. If you getting a sunscreen which is sheer, matte and with high SPF then you can’t stop to try it. Here it goes how it fared.

PACKAGING:
   Plum Chamomile & White Tea Sheer Matte Day Cream SPF50 does comes in the basic packaging of Plum Suncare range. It comes in white squeezable tube with a flip cap which comes in white cardboard box with details of the product.

SHADE, CONSISTENCY & FRAGRANCE:
   The cream is white in colour like any sunscreen but surprisingly it doesn’t leave a white cast on this skin after application. This surely wins me out as most of the sunscreen due leave white cast on face. It have a thick consistency like a cream but with a very light texture which spreads easily and blends seamlessly. It does have mild fragrance which I personally like, but it might be a problem for some.

RESULTS:
   As I said already it is a very light textured cream and doesn’t leave a white cast upon application, apart from that it does gives a nice oil free matte finish to the skin after application which oily to combination skin people will like it. But people with very dry skin might find this bit drying on skin. That can be avoided by using a nice moisturiser underneath of it to give that extra hydration to the skin. It does makes my skin soft and does brighten it up. It give that necessary SPF50 which is best during those schorching sunny days. the downside of this is that it is not water resistant or sweat resistant, so it needs reapplication whenever neccesary. It does stays for 3 to 4 hours and you need to reapply it again after that. I wish this sunscreen does stay on the whole day.
