Lakme Sun Expert SPF 40 Ultra Matte Compact Review

Hello all! Today I am going to review Lakme Sun Expert Ultra Matte Compact Powder. Lakme Sunscreen compact is one of its kind because it provides non sticky sun protection. We all know how important it is to apply sunscreen everyday because it protects us from harmful and damaging UV rays. But it is very difficult to find a sunscreen that suits our skin, is non greasy as well as non oily. Also we need to reapply sunscreen after every few hours but how do we do that if we are wearing makeup.

Therefore, I liked Lakme Sun Expert SPF 40 Ultra Matte Compact very much because first of all, it has SPF 40 and PA+++ that means this sunscreen compact will provide good amount of sun protection. Moreover, it is in compact form and very easy to apply too. You just need to dab it over makeup if you are out in the sun every few hours or you can wear it alone too. Read on to know more about pros and cons of Lakme Sun Expert SPF 40 Ultra Matte compact.

Lakme Sun Expert SPF 40 Ultra Matte Compact comes in vibrant bright yellow cardboard box with details written on it. Inside cardboard box, Lakme sunscreen compact comes in plastic yellow colored slightly round compact case with mirror and decent powder puff inside. Lakme Sun Expert SPF 40 Ultra Matte compact has nostalgic Lakme fragrance that comes in all Lakme sunscreens and that I am absolutely fond of.

Lakme compact is available in one universal shade that suits me very well and will suit all women with fair to medium skin tones. It can look a bit ashy on women with darker skin tones as this shade is very light. You need to blend this compact powder properly with powder puff provided or powder brush so that it looks natural on skin. Now, I won’t suggest you to skip your sunscreen totally because obviously your regular sunscreen will provide more protection but you can use this sunscreen compact if you are out only for few hours or you can use it to reapply sunscreen over makeup. I usually like to wear it alone on my face when I am out in sun for only 2-3 hours.

You will obviously need to apply it again if you are out in sun for more than 3 hours because it does not have long staying power. Also blend it properly and do not use too much of this sunscreen compact because it will then make you look white because Lakme Sun Expert compact is sunscreen only in powder form. Also, this is an ultra matte compact and thus it will be drying for dry skinned beauties if your skin is not moisturized properly. Lakme Sun Expert Ultra Matte compact also does not have much coverage so it will not hide your dark spots or pigmentation but will brighten up your face a little bit when applied.


Yes, I will absolutely recommend Lakme Sun Expert SPf 40 Ultra Matte Compact to all women who re looking for sun protection in powder form. It is a good sunscreen compact in affordable range with SPF 40 and PA+++ that protects from UVA and UVB rays. If applied properly, it looks natural on face and does not make our skin oily and greasy. Moreover, Lakme Sun Expert compact is a very convenient way to apply sunscreen over makeup. I will definitely repurchase Lakme Sun Expert SPF 40 Ultra Matte Compact for myself in future too.
