This sunscreen is perfect for oily skin. After the gel texture effortlessly melts into the skin, it feels like I'm wearing nothing at all. Although, I must admit that it does make the skin feel tight and a bit dry for makeup application afterwards. What I do now is I apply this right cleansing and wait 3-4 minutes before I apply my moisturizer on top of it. I don't like to apply foundation and concealer on an already matte face >.<
It has a strong flowery-menthol fragrance, which some might find a bit overpowering at first, but it goes away in, like 30 seconds. So, it's not something to worry about.
As for the cooling effect, it is there. Weirdly so. Have you ever used Dermi Cool body powder? Well, it feels just like that. It's more of a menthol/minty cooling, not a splash-of-cold water cooling. I hope that makes sense to you =D . Also, this 'cooling' sensation doesn't last for long, I'd say I feel it for only about 5 mins. But all this doesn't bother me at all.
The best thing about this (for me) is ~ I can re-apply it on top of my make-up during the day and it will not make my face look blotchy or mess up my base. I love that. I needed that. If you don't want to mess up your blush, I suggest that you re-apply the sunscreen by slapping it on to your whole face instead of applying it like you normally would.
Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ + .7
Price~ Rs.195 for 60g. I think it's a tad pricey for the quantity. What do you think? You 'cool' with it? ;)
