Hiii Pretty Ladies! 🙂
Good Day to all! ❤❤❤
So, for Us, the office or college goers…
Every morning is a new challenge.. a new battle…
From preparing to go to office to getting the household chores done… From applying Sunscreen to MakeUp!
We are always running short of time… Isn’t it? 😀
Well, it definitely is so for me… I ain’t a heavy makeup person.. and anything that lessens my makeup burden is a must have for me… Generally, after applying Sunscreens I need to use a compact correctly and this and that to avoid a weird shiny nose( Oily skin woes! 🙁 ), which consumes too much of my valuable morning time… 🙁
**Comes to my Rescue** A Sunscreen!!! 😛
The Sunscreen I am going to review today has definitely made me skip compacts and face powders ever since i started using it.. and honestly, I love it( Except for 1 single con)! 😀
AROMA MAGIC SUNBLOCK LOTION, SPF 30, PA++
DESCRIPTION: Broad spectrum UVA/UVB protects and mattifies, All natural mineral line.
I am 100% free of oxybenzone, paraben, harsh chemicals, alcohol and artificial fragrance. My all mineral, ultra effective formula creates a physical barrier between you and the sun. I am non greasy, skin friendly and enriched with carrotseed, wheatgerm, and jojoba oils. They provide natural sun safety, vitamin B5 ,C ,E and prevent visible signs of ageing. Notes of helichrysum, calendula and roman chamomile essential oils heal scars and mattify your skin. The non nano zinc oxide in me is a mineral reflector found in nature that scatters harmful rays. Green tea extracts promote elasticity and provide smart sun protection.
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 1/2 tsp. to protect your face and 1 tbsp. to cover skin from head to toe. I am a perfect complement to your daily makeup routine too.
CAUTION: Reapply every 90 minutes and every 30 minutes if you are doing anything active, that’s causing you to work up a sweat and always after swimming.
Purified water, organic beeswax, zinc oxide, daucus carota sativa seed oil, vegetable glycerin, Triticum vulgare germ oil, Camellia sinensis extract, aloe barbadensis gel, simmondsia chinensis seed oil, anthemis nobilis essential oil, ascorbic acid, helichrysum flower essential oil , calendula officinalis essential oil, sodium riboflavin phosphate, panthenol.
SHELF LIFE: 3 years
COST: INR 180 for 50ml, INR 320 for 100ml.
MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
This Aroma Magic sunblock comes in a cutely printed, chrome-yellow coloured tube with all the details mentioned on the body of the tube… The tube has a flip cap that shuts really tight and prevents any leakage… I have the 50ml tube and it’s damn too chic and travel friendly… 😀
The sunblock lotion has a very faint pink colour and a texture and consistency similar to the Pond’s White Beauty day cream! Also, it has a really pleasant fragrance that is quite mild and won’t bother the Sensitive noses.. 🙂
Now, the one thing that I completely dislike about it is that the cream settles into patches (Like the fairness creams) if I try to apply it all over my face in one go… To avoid any such disaster, I take a little bit of the cream at a time and apply it to a portion of my face and blend it instantly… This helps to evenly spread the cream without it getting patchy… 😀
The sunblock gives a nice coverage and evens out the skin’s complexion to some extent, providing a good base for makeup. I have never felt the need to use any face powder or compact over this sunblock.. ❤
It really mattifies the skin and my skin, even after being on the oily side, remains matte for about an hour or so, after which the T zone starts getting shiny! ❤
As far as the sun protection is concerned, it does its job perfectly… It protects my skin really well and I have never seen much tan on my face even after being under direct sun for hours.. ❤ Also, though it is not sweat resistant, it doesn’t get washed away with sweat easily… ❤
Now, to its claims of healing the scars… Well, I have seen the acne marks on my cheeks getting a little less prominent ever since I have started using this sunblock… This is something quite uncommon for a sun protection lotion to do and really makes it stand out! 😀 Plus, this sunblock lotion never broke me out or increased my acne… So, that’s a complete win-win situation for me! ❤❤❤

SUMMING DOWN PROS AND CONS:
1. Inexpensive and easily available. Buy it from here!
2. Mattifies the skin.
3. Gives a good coverage for light makeup.
4. Heals scars to a small extent.
5. Gives great sun protection and protection from tanning too.
6. Suitable for all skin types, even the Sensitive ones.
1. Doesn’t blend easily and settles into patches when applied all over the face in one go.
2. Not sweat-resistant.. (It would have been great if it was! 😀 )
FINAL TAKE: I really like this sunblock as it doesn’t make my skin go dark or sweaty.. Also, it keeps my face mattified for quite a long time and prevents me from tanning.. I just wish it was sweat resistant, then it would have become my HG Sunscreen! 😀
