The packaging is good. It is a white bottle with a green cap. I usually like sunscreens in a tube but this is a lotion so it comes in a bottle.
It comes in 2 variants. The 100ml one costs Rs.180/- and the 210ml costs Rs.280/-
It is already mentioned in the packaging that this is meant for normal to dry skin. I know that I cannot use this on my face as it is oily. I also knew that this could be great as a body lotion so I went ahead and purchased this. I was impressed with the fact that this contains carrot extracts. My grandmom has told me earlier that carrots are very good for skin. She used to apply carrot juice before bath.
This is a very good moisturizing sunscreen. Biotique sunscreens are usually oily. So I always don’t use them on face. But they are really good for the hands and feet. It is greasy and takes sometime to get absorbed into the skin but I can be assured that my skin is moisturized and protected for the rest of the day. The fragrance is decent.
My rating would be 3/5 as this claims as a face and body sunscreen but is way too oily for the face. However it does a great job as a body sunscreen.
Would I repurchase: Yes. It is a good body lotion
