Biotique Bio Aloe Vera sunscreen review SPF 50+

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

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 🙂 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 🙁 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.

Aroma essentials Mint Mask review

These are my views on this aroma essentials Mint Mask review

What’s my option?

This Mint mask is green in color. It has a gel (is a little shimmery too) kinda consistency  with few traces of some black beads (I have no idea what are those, If you have any guesses..let me know in the comments).The first time I applied this Mint mask, there was a light cooling sensation on my skin. That didn’t last long though.

Aroma essentials mint mask review

 

The gel spreads quite well on my face and doesn’t at all feels like I have put some mask on my face. A pea sized amount is want you all need. It was absorbed quickly. And the black beads stuff neither gets absorbed nor stays on my face. I can see no beads staying on my face in the morning even though I have put a quite few of them in the night before.

And You ask where they go? All over my pillow 😀

The product smells minty, some kinda of pepperminty smell I can say.  I usually apply this in the night and wash off in the morning. My skin feels fresh and glowy soft in the morning.

Aroma essentials mint mask review

 

I am 🙂 for

  • Nice refreshing mint smell.
  • Skin looks glowy in the morning.
  • Travel friendly
  • Product lasts long ( for me it lasted for more than 2 months- when used twice a week) as a very little amount is sufficient for the whole face

I am 🙁 for

  • No ingredients. I cannot dare to use those products which don’t specify their ingredients which are used to make that product. It kinda taking a big risk to my skin.
  • No Usage instructions or description on the product. Again, if there is no specification of what to expect with any given product, what’s the point of using it for.? To focus on which problem. To help for which type of skin?
  • Those black beads. It would have been better if they have specified about these on the product. But then, these are of no use in my option, as they don’t stay on my face after i apply the mask and also doesn’t get absorbed into the skin
  • Availability. Only available on their Facebook page.

 

One last Line…

Overall a good mask. You can try it if you want but not recommended from my side mainly if you are that junkie who reads the ingredients and knows about the product first to use Like me.

Recently I encountered this beautiful aromatic Body butter from “Aroma Essentials” on Facebook. Their all natural skin and body care products is what makes almost everyone like their products. I have ordered a body butter floured in orange vanilla  and a Mint mask from Aroma essentials sometime back. The body butter is almost finished, and its time for a review 😉 The first thing that when I opened this body butter was its beautiful vanilla citrusy aroma. You don’t believe me, but 90% of the times I open the product just to smell it.

But I don’t fall only for the aroma of the product, but also for the effectiveness of the product. After-all, we all buy products with that being the main reason. So read on the review and know by yourself about the effectiveness of the product.

Aroma Essentials body butter review

These are my views on this aroma essentials body butter

What’s my option?

An natural chemical free, Paraben free and preservative free body butter with a luxurious aroma, what all to expect 😀 Although the aroma doesn’t linger all day long it keeps my skin highly moisturized in winters. The consistency is thick & It feels a little greasy when you apply but gets easily absorbed as if you skin as drunk all that goodness of the body butter. Although they have mentioned that we can use on our face as well, but I don’t recommend it for oily skin beauties to use this body butter on your face, as the skin cells on the face are different from that of the body and you may fell more greasy and oily if you apply it on your face, specially in summers.

For dry skin- I feel Its an excellent moisturizer for your face in winters.

An Overall feast for your skin. You’re gonna love it for sure.
