Plum has been releasing so many new products for summer that it is hard to keep up! Sunscreen, however, is a staple for me and I didn’t think twice before picking up the Plum Green Tea Day-Light Sunscreen Gel. I have loved everything that I have tried from the Plum Green Tea range so far, and this sunscreen lotion is no exception! Read on for all my thoughts on this summer essential.
The Plum Green Tea Day-Light Sunscreen comes in a travel-friendly white tube with a flip lid. The product inside is a light-weight lotion with the standard green tea range scent. The formula sinks into the skin very quickly and is not greasy or shiny. It also provides hydration and I like that it is not streaky like some other matte sunscreens but has more of a demi-matte finish. The product contains SPF 35 and PA+++ to protect against UVA and UVB rays.
I personally enjoy using this product on both my face and body, especially now that the weather has become humid. I love how lightweight this lotion is and how quickly it sinks into the skin. It works well as a primer underneath makeup as well. The formula is suitable for normal to oily skin types, and I feel that it will work for those with dry skin too if they pair this sunscreen with a moisturiser.
The product also contains niacinamide, which is known to even out the skin tone, aloe and calendula extract to soothe the skin, and green tea extracts for preventing acne. I do find this product quite soothing and refreshing on the skin and my skin does feel brighter after using it for several weeks. And of course, like all other products from Plum, this sunscreen is cruelty-free, vegan and free of parabens.
The Plum Green Tea Day-Light Sunscreen is priced at INR 575, for which you get 50ml of product. I will say that the price is slightly up there, but the ingredients of this sunscreen somewhat make up for it. If you are in the market for a cooling, hydrating and light-weight sunscreen lotion then this product is the right choice for you.
