I have tried a couple of sun screens since January. I wanted to try and find affordable options for hands and feet. Today I am going to review the first of the lot. I usually use at least SPF 50 for face. For body, I use lesser SPF too. This is a biotique product and has SPF 30 with UVA/UVB protection. Let’s see how it fared.
This nutrient-rich lotion is blended with pure aloe vera, sunflower and safflower oils to keep skin soft, fair and moisturized in the sun. Protects skin with broad spectrum SPF 30 UVA/UVB sunscreen.

Like all the other biotique sun lotions, this is think heavy lotion but runny in consistency. It is easily to spread out but takes time to get absorbed. I have combination skin but choose a sunscreen for oily to avoid greasiness. The fragrance is not too my liking. It is heavily scented that even a person with no sensitive nose cannot tolerate it. Worst part is it lasts long. This gives a nice soothing sensation on application. This does a good work as a sunscreen but makes my skin extremely dull. It makes my skin appear darker than usual. It gives moisturizes well. After a few hours, it gives a stretchy feeling.
Pros of Biotique Bio Aloe Vera Face & Body Sun Lotion SPF30:
• Moisturizes well.
• Decently priced.
• Not greasy.
• Soothing sensation.
Cons of Biotique Bio Aloe Vera Face & Body Sun Lotion SPF30:
• Heavily scented.
• Makes my skin lifeless.
• Makes skin stretchy after a few hours.
• Not travel friendly.
• Takes times to absorb.
I liked the other variants sunscreen lotions from Biotique. I am just experimenting with their creams. I am sure this one has to be skipped for all skin types.
