VLCC YouthBoost Sunscreen Gel Creme SPF 40 PA+++ Review

VLCC YouthBoost Sunscreen Gel Creme SPF 40 PA+++ Review

I have been using Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunblock SPF 50 for ever since I remember. So much so that I actually got bored of it and decided to try a new one. That’s when this sunscreen range from VLCC caught my eye. I guess they have changed the packaging off late and it looks pretty bright and nice now. So I picked up the one with SPF 40.

My take on VLCC YouthBoost Sunscreen Gel Creme SPF 40 PA+++

Packaging: Comes in attractive yellow tube packaging with fliptop cap. Comes in two sizes and is travel friendly

Fragrance and Colour: It comes in a white gel form and actually smells like men’s cologne or after shave.

Texture: Lightweight gel like texture which is neither too runny nor too thick. Gets easily absorbed.

Points worth mentioning-

  • Even though its extremely lightweight, it’s highly moisturizing. I don’t need to use a separate moisturizer when I am using this. It also works great under makeup
  • It doesn’t leave a whitish case like most sunscreens do.
  • It gives a dewy, well moisturized look. Hence those who prefer matte sunscreens may not like this.
  • It did not cause any breakouts or irritation to my sensitive skin
  • Paraben-free formulation
  • It will work for all skin types, though those with dry skin may need additional moisturizer when the climate is extremely dry. Also, during humid climate, those with oily-combination skin may find this a bit too highly moisturizing.

Do I recommend VLCC YouthBoost Sunscreen Gel Creme SPF 40 PA+++

Overall I think it is a great pocket friendly sunscreen worth trying. You can always go for the smaller trial size to see if it works for you. It’s available on great discounts online as well as supermarkets like DMart.

  1. The sunscreens have come a long way. No greasy feeling and no white cast is what a look for in sunscreen. I am still using my Neutrogena one and yes getting a little bored haha! VLCC is a nice brand I used to use their face masks a lot while I was in Bombay. They do have some nice skincare range. 🙂 Have a great day Shri.

  2. trying a smaller size would be wiser idea…sounds really great with spf 40 but sometimes a bit heavy moisturizing sun creams makes me sweat…
