AROMA MAGIC ALOE VERA SUNSCREEN GEL REVIEW
I am sharing my review of the Aroma Magic Aloe Vera Sunscreen Gel by Blossom Kochhar. This sunscreen gel comes in SPF 20 variant and is an all natural mineral line. It provides broad spectrum protection against UVA & UVB rays.
Price: Rs 310 for 100ml & Rs 170 for 50ml
Oily and acne prone skin
ABOUT THE PRODUCT:
I am 100 % free of oxybenzone, paraben, harsh chemicals, alcohol and artificial fragrance. My all-mineral, gel formula creates a physical barrier between you and the sun. I am non greasy, skin friendly and enriched with wheatgerm, avocado and grapeseed oils. They provide natural sun safety, Vitamins B5, C, E and prevent visible signs of ageing. Notes of calendula, peppermint and roman chamomile essential oils hydrate, soothe and reduce acne. The non-nano Zinc Oxide in me is a mineral reflector found in nature that scatters harmful rays. Aloe Vera extracts hydrate, purify and provide smart sun protection.

Why is it essential?
The sun is a major source of energy and Vitamin D. But too much exposure to the sun can be harmful to our skin. One of the most effective ways to protect you from the sun is through the application of sunscreen. The sunscreen lotions protect our skin either by absorbing or reflecting UVA and UVB rays. Hence, it is important to look for a better sunscreen lotion with a higher Sun Protection Factor (commonly known as SPF) to save your skin from the most common sun hazards. Sunscreen makes the skin soft, smooth and firm. It also slows down the development of wrinkled and premature aging of the skin. Always remember to apply a suitable moisturiser before the application of the sunscreen so that the latter can work effectively.

Aroma Magic Aloe Vera Sunscreen Gel comes in a green coloured graphic tube with a white coloured base which dispenses the sunscreen gel. It has a similar colour coded cardboard packaging too. I think the packaging is quite chic and attractive.
The sunscreen comes in a gel like formula as the name suggests. It is a clear gel with the slightest greenish tinge in it which is visible on noticing. The gel is extremely light weight and gets absorbed into the skin easily without feeling oily or greasy. Generally gel sunscreens are most suitable for oily and acne prone skin.
You all must be aware how important is sunscreen in skincare routine. It is one part of your skincare that you should not miss as prolonged direct exposure to sunlight can create havoc to your skin. It is highly recommended to use a sunscreen on a daily basis even when you are indoors, be it any season.
I was on a lookout for a safer and natural sunscreen to protect my skin from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. Aroma Magic Aloe Vera Sunscreen gel is a safer alternative as this sunscreen is free of harsh chemicals and the gel formula of this sunscreen is suitable for oily and acne prone skin. I have combination-to-oily skin which is slightly acne prone and this sunscreen suits my skin perfectly.
I have been trying out products from Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic which are free of parabens, alcohol, mineral oils, harsh chemicals, artificial colours, fragrances, petrochemicals and phthalates. Also their products are not tested on animals.
This sunscreen has non-nano Zinc Oxide which is a mineral reflector found in nature that scatters harmful rays. Aloe Vera extracts present in the gel hydrate, purify and provide smart sun protection.
So far I have been loving this Sunscreen gel as it feels non-greasy on my skin and it gets absorbed into my skin easily. You require just a tiny amount of this sunscreen for your entire face and neck area hence, this tube lasts for a pretty long time. I love the clear and transparent gel which hydrates and protects your skin efficiently. If you are staying indoors most of the time then this is the right sunscreen for you as it contains SPF 20. I would not recommend this sunscreen to you if you intend to go outdoors under direct sunlight as SPF 20 would not be enough to provide you protection for long hours. I wish this sunscreen came with a higher SPF variant then it would have become my holy grail sunscreen as I am in love with the gel formula of this sunscreen which gets absorbed quickly, does not feel oily even after few hours of its application and rests on your face giving a light weight feeling.
Aroma Magic Aloe Vera Sunscreen Gel can also work as a primer for your face as it smoothens your face giving you a flawless looking base. I generally like to apply this sunscreen on top of my daily moisturiser and this works best in that way. Even this sunscreen can be worn on its own but layering upon a moisturiser is recommended for better results. If you have combination or oily skin which is acne prone then this is the sunscreen to go for.
I love this sunscreen and highly recommend this safe and natural sunscreen to all of you.
