Product Review: Oshea Herbals UVShield Mattifying 5 in 1 SPF 40 Sunblock Cream & Oshea UVShield Sunblock Gel with SPF-20

One of the easiest way to protect your skin from tanning and premature ageing due to exposure to sun is by using good quality sunscreen. From ever so confusing pool of products available these days, all claiming to be the perfect shield for even the most sensitive skin, TDD was left confused about what should be our first pick.

With much excitement, we chose two products from the same brand. The SPF 40 from Oshea Herbals… or to be precise, OSHEA Herbals UVShield  Mattifying 5 in 1 SPF 40 Sunblock Cream.. phew! & Oshea UVShield Sunblock Gel with SPF-20.

TDD DIDN’T LIKE

We once tried it just before going for a swim and noticed the product couldn’t stand the deal. Perhaps, it is essential for a sun-bock to be atleast light greasy to sustain in chlorine treated water, and that is where we think this product might not be of a great choice. It needs to be massaged for few second for better adsorption.

TDD loved

Its dual performance- as a sun block and as an everyday make-up base. Transparent gel ensure there are no typical sunblock patches.
