My Experience

Skin Type – Normal Sensitive

L’oreal paris uv perfect aqua essence spf 50 has a thin consistency and hence it spreads easily on my skin. This lotion gets absorbed in to the skin easily and helps moisturise my normal skin. It certainly may not be enough to hydrate dry skin though.

The finish varies from dewy in summers to matte finish in winters. I do require a separate moisturiser under this in winter season.

This is one of those sunscreens which you can apply and forget about it. It certainly does not give a heavy, tacky or sticky feel to my skin. So layering makeup foundation or BB cream is not an issue.

Another positive factor of  L’oreal paris uv perfect aqua essence spf 50 is that it does not leave behind a white cast despite having a very high sun protection factor.(SPF 50++++)

Does L’oreal UV Perfect Aqua Essence Sunscreen Protect Your Skin For 12 Hours?

Unfortunately No.

SPF 50 means that the sunscreen protects your skin for 250 minutes. That is, 4 hours. You have to reapply after that especially if you are out in the sun.

But, This sunscreen does provide complete protection against all UVA rays of the sun.

Does It Suit Sensitive Skin?

Yes, I totally recommend L’oreal sunscreen for sensitive skin. It did not irritate my skin at all.

My skin did not turn red or dull/dark/itchy which is what usually happens when the ingredients do not suit my skin.

It certainly did not cause breakouts either.

Loreal uv perfect aqua essence sunscreen review

All in all this is a very good sunscreen may suit most skin types, if not all skin types. I just wish the quantity was 50 ml though. Then it would have been perfect.


  • Provides very high protection against UVA rays of the sun (SPF ++++)
  • Contains anti ageing ingredients (Adenosine & Vitamin E)
  • Has Hyaluronic acid which moisturises the skin
  • Did not cause any irritation/breakouts on my sensitive skin
  • Lotion like consistency
  • Easy to blend
  • Nozzle type opening
  • Gets absorbed in a flash
  • No white cast
  • Non oily
  • Dewy finish
  • Travel friendly packaging
  • Paraben free
  • Alcohol free


  • Price is comparatively high (if not on sale)
  • May not suit very oily skin
  • False 12 hour sun protection claim.

Sunscreen should always be reapplied every 4 hours especially if you are under the sun.

Rating – 4.8/5
