Lakme Sun Expert After Sun Lightening Face Wash Review


During summers, the skin needs much more than refreshment. It need light detanning effect and also freshness along with the removal of oil and impurities. So, when I saw this Lakme Sun Expert De-Tan face wash, I got tempted and bought it. Since then, this has become my summer partner! So, let me review the Lakme Sun Expert Skin Lightening + De-Tan After Sun Face Wash for you...

Product Description- This specially formulated face wash with UV filters & anti-tan ingredients cleans pores deeply and keeps away common forms of skin irritation. Deep cleanse each pore with cucumber and lemon grass extracts, de-tan as you cleanse.
  • It has UV Filters
  • Contains Cucumber and Lemon Grass extracts
  • Is Suitable for All Skin Types

Price in India- Rs. 145 for 100 g, Rs. 85 for 50 g

Packaging- The Lakme Sun Expert Face Wash comes in a sunny yellow tube with a flip-open cap. The cap fits nicely and there is no leakage of product. The packaging mentions all details like price, ingredients and other product information. The tube should be kept upside down and this makes it easier for me to squeeze out product with utmost convenience.

Fragrance, color, consistency- The Lakme Sun Expert Facial Wash smells fresh, a bit like men's perfume but does not linger onto the skin for long. The fragrance is neither too strong nor too mild. The face wash is colorless and has a few colorless bursting beads. This facial cleanser has a slightly runny consistency.

My Take On Lakme Sun Expert Skin Lightening + De-Tan After Sun Face Wash-

Honestly, this is one of the best face washes available in India for summers. I use it when I come home after experiencing a scorching, tiresome day. It removes pollution particles nicely from my skin, lathers really nicely and cleanses the skin pretty well. The fragrance is refreshing and I feel a cooling sensation on my skin while using this. The soft bursting beads of this cleanser are colourless. It never ever broke me out and it does its job greatly. However, on stubborn tans, this does not work. It only helps in brightening the skin and also dissolving very very mild tans. Anyways, this is a great way to freshen up the skin and cleanse it without over drying it out. It caused no reactions on my sensitive skin but be careful as it contains SLS.


1) Fragrance is nice and refreshing
2) Packaging is good
3) Cleanses the skin nicely
4) Lathers well
5) Does not over dry the skin
6) Has light de-tanning effect
7) Soothes and cools the skin
8) Did not break me out
9) Affordable
10) Has UV filters


1) Contains SLS and other chemicals
2) Do not expect strong de-tanning effect or anything as this is just a mild face wash

Final Verdict- Overall, this is a good summer face wash and I love to use it on hot, scorching summer days. It does not over dry the skin and does its job nicely. Do not expect miracles from it. This has become my summer staple skin care product. It does refresh the skin and makes the skin brighter. All in all, this is a good affordable face wash in India.
