Skin type: Oily in summers, sensitive
The temperatures are skyrocketing and the scorching sun is taking a toll on skin! I was looking for a good sunscreen for my body, since it isn’t feasible to step out in the sun by covering my hands and feet always! I got this Biotique sunscreen ultra soothing body lotion. See if it is a good choice for this hot summer!
Price: Rs. 150 for 50 ml
Biotique Aloe Vera Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Body Lotion SPF 50 develops a protective barrier for your skin with high SPF 50. Excess exposure to sunlight damages skin, so the UV formula in this lotion guards your skin from tanning and pigmentation. This Body Lotion adds the desired amount of moisture and makes skin soft and elastic. It also brightens your skin and leaves a radiant glow.
My Experience with Biotique Bio Aloe Vera Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Body Lotion SPF 50:
Packaging: The sunscreen comes in a golden yellow medium-sized tube with a green flip open cap. The cap isn’t very sturdy, so you need to be careful when carrying it in your bag. The size is travel friendly, and all the necessary details are clearly mentioned on the tube.
The texture is very runny, and has a watery consistency. Be careful about taking the product as extra pressure may give you excess amount of the lotion. The lotion is white in colored and has a very overpowering smell. In fact, I find the smell very repulsive. However, I am glad that the smell lasts for a short time only, and is noticeable only if you sniff closely.
Given the consistency, the lotion spreads and absorbs easily. On application, you have a nice cooling sensation, probably due to the presence of aloe vera. It is perfect for the summer afternoons where you have no choice other than stepping out in the sun. It doesn’t feel sticky or greasy, and imparts moisture to skin.
The temperature here is close to 40 degrees, and the sun rays attack your skin like spikes. This sunscreen prevented my hands and feet from getting tanned. I am quite prone to sunburns and sun-related skin problems, so I was very happy finding a sunscreen which saved my skin. I try to reapply it every 4 hours, but often end up forgetting. So suppose I apply it in the morning, and return in evening, I don’t notice any redness. Yes, that’s quite an achievement for my skin!
I don’t think it is water resistant, and if you are going for swimming or washing your hands or feet apply liberally and don’t forget to reapply. Other than the smell which was a big letdown, I am quite impressed with this humble baby.
