My experience with Biotique Sandalwood Face and Body Sun Cream:
The key ingredient of this sun cream is sandalwood which comes from sandal tree, native to India, and used throughout the ages for its pampering and protecting properties. The texture of Bio sandalwood sun cream is like a creamy kneaded dough*yes I am not lying* which has a cream colour. It comes in a boring green coloured plastic tub. It has spf 50 and has a mild sandalwood smell which stays for only a few minutes. It takes time to get absorbed into the skin and makes my skin very soft. It keeps it moisturized for 2-3 hours so I do not need a moisturizer. It did not give me any redness or irritation. It is recommended for all types of skin. I do not think it will work out for ladies with extremely oily skin. The reason is that it gives me greasiness till the time it is not absorbed into the skin. Only a small amount is needed for arms and legs. I am quite happy with this sun cream.
