Aroma Magic Carrot Sunscreen Lotion SPF 15
I generally use a moisturizer with low SPF when I am indoors. Till recently, I was using Lakme Peach Milk moisturizer with SPF 24 and have been loving it. Recently, I have taken a liking to Aroma Magic products because of their impressive ingredient list (they claim to be free from harmful chemicals and have a lot of natural ingredients like essential oils). Some of their products have worked really well for me while some are complete duds (I have reviewed a couple of them on this blog). Along with a couple of Aroma Magic products, I picked up this sunscreen lotion for using as a daytime indoor moisturizer during a recent haul.

About Aroma Magic Carrot Sunscreen Lotion SPF 15
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 moisturise, 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.
My take on Aroma Magic Carrot Sunscreen Lotion SPF 15
Packaging – Attractive red colored tube with a flip top cap. However, since it is a lotion, it is quite runny and I would have preferred it came in a bottle instead.
Color & Texture – The lotion is white in color, rich in texture, but quite runny.
Fragrance – The fragrance is predominantly like lavender since it has lavender oil as one of its ingredients
I use this as a day time moisturizer when I am indoors. For outdoors, I prefer something with higher SPF. Lately, the climate has been really dry and my already dry skin feels further drier. Like I mentioned, it is quite rich and heavy in texture, so it’s working perfectly well for me currently. It gets instantly absorbed and I do not feel the need for a separate moisturizer. It goes well under makeup. There is no whitish cast. Though I have sensitive skin, it neither broke me out nor irritated my skin.
Though this is working really well for me currently in this dry climate, I have a feeling this might be too heavy for use in summers when the climate is humid.
What I love about this sunscreen
- Impressive ingredient list (doesn’t contain oxybenzone, paraben, harsh chemicals, alcohol and artificial fragrance)
- Highly moisturizing but non-greasy (in current dry climate)
- Gets instantly absorbed and doesn’t leave behind a whitish cast
- Can be used under makeup
- Attractive packaging
- Mild lavender fragrance
What I don’t like about this sunscreen
- Would have preferred it came in a bottle since the lotion is quite runny
- Not suitable for use in humid climate – can make your skin greasy
Do I recommend it?
Absolutely. If you have dry or normal skin and looking for something with low SPF, go for it. But avoid it if the climate is humid – it will make your skin greasy.
