Lotus Herbals Safe Sun SPF 100+PA +++ SunBlock- Press Release and Bloggers Meet

Hey everyone,

If you've been following me on Facebook, you might as well be knowing by now that I got an invitation by the Lotus Herbals Team to be a part of their Bloggers Meet to discuss about the new SPF 100 PA +++ Ultra Sunblock lotion.

It was a very casual meetup and I got to meet some really cool bloggers there. I was the first one to arrive at the venue and had a quick round of introduction with the PR team . I was just sitting and idling away my time when Awungshi of Dr Poison Ivy's Beauty Blog arrived. We instantly started talking and it really never felt that we were meeting for the first time. The same was the case when Shalini from Be Beautilicious (loved the way she sported that bright red lip!!)and Poorva from All Things Beautiful arrived(oh! she was so sweet!!). We girls instantly bonded and talked a lot (mostly about makeup and cosmetics of course!). (I was really missing my camera at that time!). You can read more about the event on Awungshi's Blog HERE and Poorva's Blog HERE :)

I really have to admit that the PR Team was very friendly and hospitable and made us all feel very comfortable and their senior cosmetologist answered all our queries very patiently. She told us why should we use sunscreens, what are sunscreens and sunblocks, and what harm do UVA and UVB rays do? I would be discussing all of that in extensive detail when I review the sunblock (which I'm liking so far!!) so stay tuned!!!

We were also given goodie bags from the Lotus Herbals Team which had the new Safe Sun SPF100+ Sunblock and a gift box containing cosmetics from the Purestay Range(you have to wait to see what's inside!!). My first impressions about the product and the packaging are great. It has got a pump dispenser and is mildly tinted and gets absorbed onto the skin without leaving a cast. Also we were shown some amazing nail Colors from the yet to be launched collection and I must say, you've got to look out for those when they hit the market cuz you'll be in love with the colors!!

A little more information about the product from the Press Release:

    1. Have you used the earlier ones Awungshi?? I quite like them...They're absolutely great for that price, maybe we should stock up before Kryolan decides to increase prices too :)
