I was recently introduced to La Shield brand through my cute dermatologist Dr.Rasya Dixit, in Bangalore. She highly recommended this sunscreen for my skin type (sensitive and oily). It costs a little more than what I usually spend on sunscreens but it is totally worth the money spent on it. Read on to find out how much I love this sunscreen and why I would recommend it.
La Shield Sunscreen Gel - Price & Quantity:
Like I said, this is slightly expensive than your commonly available sunscreens. You can get it for anywhere between Rs 546/- and Rs 642. La Shield themselves sell them on Amazon for Rs 546/- which is the lowest price I have seen so far. It comes in tube form and weighs 60gms.

My Thoughts on La Shield Sunscreen Gel:
I have already professed my love for this sunscreen, so let me tell you why exactly I love it and why I would definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone with oily skin.
The sunscreen is so light on the skin that it gets easily absorbed by the skin. One might argue that gel-based products are supposed to feel that way. True that! However, oily skinned people will side with me when I say that most of the so-called 'gel-based' products don't feel light or comfortable to wear. This one doesn't feel tacky or icky on the skin. It feels like I haven't applied anything on my skin.
This way, oily skinned people can actually wear makeup on top of it with it just sliding off or melting off the face.
Next reason; I'm a dark/brown skinned women and most of the sunscreen products make me looks like a shoddy looking ghost. I absolutely hate it when that happens. The La Shield sunscreen gel just blends with dark/brown complexion and looks natural. It has a mild yellow tint to it which disappears on blending, making this a great sunscreen for any complexion.
Next; it is water resistant and still doesn't feel heavy.
These are just some of the reasons I wanted to explain. Here's the entire list of pros and cons.
- Dermatologist tested
- Free of preservatives
- Alcohol and dye-free
- No color additives
- Feels light on the skin
- Completly absorbed by the skin
- Moisturizing without it being too oily
- Water resistant
- Has SPF 40
- Easily available
- Cost is on the expensive side
- Doesn't work in chlorinated water**
** What I mean to say is, it still works when you go for a swim (like in an ocean or something) but the moment you step into a chlorinated water source, all bets are off - It doesn't work any longer.
I'm in love with this sunscreen and I honestly believe that I found the 'one' for my skin type. I would highly recommend this sunscreen even though it is on the expensive side.
