Product Description & Swatches:

Dr.Reddy's Shadowz SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion Review


1)It contains shea butter,glycerin hence a moisturising sunscreen so doubles up as moisture and sunscreen.

2)It is Broad spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen,provides protection from both UVA and UVB sun rays.

3)It contains Vitamin E which is anti-oxidant.


5)It is suitable for normal-dry skin types.

6)Hygienic packaging.


1)Though it claims be non-oily/oil-free sunscreen,it makes skin very oily post application.

2)It is highly comedogenic so it will not suit Oily-acne prone skin.


4)It contains parabens,alcohol.

5)It is not water-proof or sweat proof.

Directions for use:

Apply sunscreen 20 minutes prior to stepping outside.Reapply after 2-3 hours.

Final Verdict:

I had high hopes from Dr.Reddy's Sunscreen though it fulfills its job of a sunscreen, it makes skin very oily.This sunscreen works best for dry skin types only.The price is also a down side for the quantity apart from the fact it is not paraben-free too.Suncote Gel Sunscreen works best for me,it is more affordable and a good quality sunscreen.I will not be repurchasing or recommending this sunscreen,I will stick to old my favourites like Suncote.

My Rating:2.75/5
