Hi loves. You all know how much I love my Lotus Herbal Sunscreens for oily skin. But today I’m going to share with you all my new found love in the range of sunscreens for oily skin. This is Biotique Bio Carrot Ultra Soothing Face Lotion SPF 40+ . So without further ado let’s get started.
Biotique Bio Carrot Ultra Soothing Face Lotion SPF 40+
Biotique Bio Carrot Ultra Soothing Face Lotion SPF 40+ comes in an opaque orange colored squeeze out tube. The packaging is really sturdy when compared to it’s price point. Every detail is written on the tube itself. And you know how much I enjoy this fact 😉 . Only problem is that you can’t make out how much product is left or when you need to reorder the stuff.
Biotique Bio Carrot Ultra Soothing Face Lotion SPF 40+ costs Rs. 115 for 50 ml of the sunscreen.
Biotique Bio Carrot Ultra Soothing Face Lotion SPF 40+ has a very sweet pleasant fragrance. The frgrance is quite strong & it will last long. The fragrance kind of seems like sandalwood. I don’t mind if my face products have fragrance in them. But I know a lot of people & may be most of you also don’t like this kind of strong fragrance. In that case I would suggest that you give it a pass.
Biotique Bio Carrot Ultra Soothing Face Lotion SPF 40+ has a very light & thin texture. It doesn’t at all feel thick or heavy. It’s a white & lightweight lotion. It blends very easily into the skin & DOESN’T LEAVE ANY WHITE CAST. You guys know how much I was disappointed for the white cast problem with the Plum Chamomile & White Tea Sheer Matte Day Cream SPF50. But this one just sinks into the skin & NO WHITECAST. OMG!!! I’m just loving this Biotique Sunscreen. <3 <3 <3
Biotique Bio Carrot Ultra Soothing Face Lotion SPF 40+ is NOT A MATTE sunscreen. It gives a glossy & radiant finish but not oily or greasy look. Since I’m from oily skin family I was (before this) a die hard fan of anything that gives me a flat matte finish. Truly speaking I never believed that anything could give me a radiant & glossy look without being looking greasy or oily. But this Biotique Sunscreen just made me a fan of itself at the first go only. Now, I tried this Biotique Sunscreen in two ways:
Firstly mixed with Juicy Chemistry Pomegranate Carrier Oil. This combo made my skin look so glowy & radiant that can’t be expressed in words. At first I thought this will make me sweat after some time. But to my surprise it didn’t. I even stood in the balcony with the sun rays directly on my face just to see if it sweats under that much heat but IT DIDN’T. I mean, can you believe this???!!!!! In this hot condition that too around like 2:30 pm in the afternoon, when there’s scorching heat outside it didn’t make me sweat. And one more thing I didn’t set this sunscreen with any kind of powder. So you can imagine how much impressed I’m with this one. <3 <3 <3
Then next day I was going out so that was a good chance to test this sunscreen. I mixed it with my Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation . This Lakme Foundation gives a complete matte finish which I definitely love but when mixed with this Biotique Sunscreen it’s more like a balanced finish between matte & radiant look. Then I set this combo with another favorite of mine for oily skin that is Faces Ultime Pro Mineral Loose Powder . And OH MY GOD!!! This combination is to die for. Even my cousin asked why was I glowing that much 😀 . And once I used this I’m just going back for this combo only ever since. I have used two other Biotique Products but only this sunscreen made me a true fan of Biotique Brand. 🙂
If you have oily skin it’s a natural tendency that any product will make you sweat if you don’t incorporate adequate amount of natural & organic oils into your skincare routine. I have experienced this & that’s why I can tell you this with certainty. Oily skin doesn’t need oil is the greatest myth. So incorporate natural oils into your routine that will in turn reduce the excess secretion of oil from your skin. Then I think you can try out anything with dewy radiant finish inspite of your oily skin.
WILL I RECOMMEND THIS ?
Oh! Absolutely yes. Dry skin people can use this without any doubt. This is going to work amazingly for you guys. Even oily skin people can use this because I’m from oily skin family. You guys just need to keep in mind to keep a proper facial oil balance. And that’s it. You will love this.
