This lotion is suitable for all skin types, however we personally recommend for dry skin. Also, it is great for summer use as it doesn’t leave behind oily residue. Although the product absorbs well, it comes with low SPF value, which may not be great for Indian summer outdoors. We would recommend this product for monsoon and winter outdoors, due to its light texture.
