I received the Inveda Sun Screen Cream Gel in my May Fab Bag and just in time for my Thailand trip. I decided to take this sunscreen and the matte SPF 30 sunscreen by Banjaras. I intended to use Inveda Sun Screen Cream Gel on my face and neck, and Banjaras’ sunscreen on rest of my body.
When I used both of them at the same time, it gave me an excellent opportunity to field test it, and the observation/outcome was quite an eye opener.
Before I reveal my observation, let’s look at what the product has to say about itself.

My Thoughts on this Product:
I love the squeeze tube packaging it comes in. The Gold, Copper and Orage shades of the packaging gives it a rich look and makes it look like a high-end product
Now, for my observation; Banjara’s sunscreen sucks and Inveda Sun Screen Cream Gel rocks!
This is an awesome sunscreen, great for hot weather. Though it's not a non-sweating formula like it claims, it also does not make my face oily. Moreover, I don’t have that whitish veil on my face. The whitish cast may go unseen on fairer complexion and can be forgiving on slightly dark or medium complexion, but on a dusky and dark skin, it looks horrible.
I love the cream+gel consistency and it blends really well. In no time, it looks like I haven’t even applied it. It reminds me so much of the Emolene Cream Gel I use. It feels really light and gives a non-greasy and dewy finish.
Here’s a pic showing what an incredible failure the Banajara’s sunscreen was.
My face is tanned from this trip. This is mainly because I had forgotten to wear sunscreen on some occasions. But during my trips to the beach, I had worn sunscreen and protected my face from getting extremely tanned.
I have seen this product on online only. This is not a big disadvantage for me, but might be for some.

- Not tested on animals
