OK. First of all, Oily skin beauties.. raise your hands. No one knows more about our oily skin problems than us. Right? WE need to double check every product. We need to prepare our own checklist while buying a product, like does it clogs pores? Does it make my skin more oily? Do i look like white ghost ( white cast problems) with that foundation? And so on. It just an never-ending list. *sigh*
My skin isn’t just oily but it also prone to acne with frequent breakouts. This makes me more conscious while picking any new product, especially sunscreen.
So i was in search of one good sunscreen that will protect me from harmful UV rays and doesn’t clog by pores too. When I saw the ingredients of Biotique bio aloe Vera sunscreen, I thought I must give this a try.
Read on to know whether this is a Savior for me or a flop?
Let’s start with the packaging…
A classic tube kinda packaging. I like the color of the tube.. See how bright and orangey it is. 🙂 I generally prefer to use this kinda tube packaging products, because its completely hygienic way of taking the right amount of product you need . You gotta touch only that product that you are gonna apply. No contamination here, unlike those of tub packing products.
- The tube is strong and sturdy.
- Leak Proof
- Travel friendly

I am really impressed by the way how well the ingredients are listed with the composition in a detailed manner. I like those brands/ products in which I can Know what’s in the product to decide two things.
1. Am I in any way allergic to these ingredients?
2. Are these ingredients safe on my skin?

Biotique Bio Aloe Vera sunscreen review
These are my views about Biotique bio Aloe Vera Sunscreen. I have used it for more than 45 days and here goes my review for you all.
What’s my option??
My Skin Type: Oily. :/
I can say, I have found my HG Sunscreen now. 😀 This Sunscreen is so soothing to my skin that it easily gets absorbed. As you can see in the below pictures, the color of this sunscreen is white and it has a runny consistency ( not creamy.! thank god) kinda lotion. It glides over the skin so easily.
The fragrance of the product was not at all over powering. It has a sweet sandalwood-mixed-herbal aroma, Though the fragrance wont last for more than hour, I wish it could 🙂
And the best past is, as it is in lotion/runny consistency you don’t need a whole lot of product to apply. A pea sized amount was enough to me. If you over apply, you end up looking like an oil producing factory :p
Though it didn’t make my skin oily/greasy, reapplication was definitely needed after 2-3 hours if I am going outdoors again or if I am going to spend more time under sun.

I am HAPPY for
- Natural Sunscreen with the power of Ayurveda
- Blends well
- Absorbs quickly
- No greasiness.
- No white cast on face.
- prefect for daily use.
- Equally effects on hands and legs too.
- No preservatives.
- No animal testing.
I am NOT OK for
- Should be reapplied often if you are spending more time outdoors even though it has a SPF factor of 50+. Don’t be surprised to see your tanned hands and feet, if you are in a dilemma that one time application would last me for whole day. 😛
One last Line.
A decent sunscreen with no nasty chemicals. Is safe on skin. For all those who are in a quest to get a natural sunscreen this summer, this is a must try product.
Do let me know in the comments below, which sunscreen are you using now and what do you hate about it. 😀
