I trust everyone would have got your share of suntan by now in this summer 😉 That brings me to today’s review, a pretty decent sunscreen lotion from the house of “Aroma Magic.” I love this brand for producing chemical-free products. As I am a working-from-home professional, I wanted some lightweight sunscreen with lesser SPF. And this Carrot Sunscreen Lotion with SPF 15 and broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection fitted the bill. By the way, the word carrot grabbed my attention in the first place, because carrots have many skin benefits. Moreover, this mineral sunscreen lotion is safe for children.
Price: INR 95 for 50 ml [BUY HERE: Aroma Magic Carrot Sun Screen Lotion, 100ml]
Product Description: I am 100% free of oxybenzone, paraben, harsh chemicals, alcohol, and artificial fragrance. My all-mineral, super-light formula creates a physical barrier between you and the sun. I am non-greasy, skin friendly, and enriched with carrotseed, sea buckthorn, and rice bran oils. They provide natural sun safety, Vitamins B5, C, E and prevent visible signs of ageing. Notes of lavender, chamomile, and myrrh essential oils moisturize, soothe, and protect your skin. The non-nano zinc oxide in me is a mineral reflector found in nature that scatters harmful rays. Carrot extracts fortify skin cells and provide smart sun protection. I am a perfect complement to your daily makeup routine too.
How to Use: Knead the tube with your hands and give a good shake as natural ingredients tend to separate. Apply me generously 15 minutes before sun exposure for desired protection. Use ½ tsp to protect your face and 1 tbsp to cover skin from head to toe. Follow up with a moisturizer.
My Experience with Aroma Magic Carrot Sunscreen Lotion SPF 15
Packaging: This sunscreen lotion comes in an opaque carrot red–colored tube with some attractive prints that are all related to a bright sunny beach day. As it has a flip-top cap, it is quite travel friendly and hygiene to use. The cap shuts tightly, making the product leak-proof. All the information, including the ingredients list, is properly printed at the back of the tube. The packaging is sturdy, is easy to carry, and contains 50 ml of product. This opaque packaging makes it hard to find out how much is used.
Texture: The texture of this sunscreen lotion is quite runny, creamy, and lightweight, but that makes the application quite easy and even. It is white in color and does not smell like carrots but definitely herbal. It gets absorbed within seconds and does not leave a white cast. It is suitable for normal to dry skin.
Performance: I bought this sunscreen lotion mainly because I needed a light sunscreen as I do not go out quite often on a weekday. It is lightweight and gives the right amount of moisturization and sun protection. A moisturizer can definitely be skipped underneath. It was non-greasy and cooling on the face when applied, but after few minutes, I started to sweat profusely. My skin took 3 days to get accustomed to this sunscreen. It did not break out my skin. It does give a greasy feel, but I do not mind it being indoors. This sunscreen will be ideal for dry skin to sun protect and moisturize. I wondered how to make best use of this wonderful chemical-free sunscreen outdoors. Then I started off applying it on exposed parts of my body other than the face. Its broad-spectrum sun protection worked wonders on my hands and feet. Zinc oxide and carrot present in this lotion helped protect the skin from harmful sun rays. Its lightweight texture allows the lotion to get absorbed quite well and does not feel greasy at all. Even since I started using this sunscreen, I noticed that my hands and feet do not look darker after a day out. The problem of tanning caused in the shape of slippers on the feet is long gone. Overall, I found my holy grail sunscreen for my hands and feet!
