Aroma Magic Carrot Sunscreen Lotion SPF 15

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.

This variant is recommended for normal and dry skin. Other sunscreens/sunblock by this brand are-

Cucumber Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 – for Normal to Sensitive Skin

Aloe Vera Sunscreen Gel SPF 20 – for Oily and Acne Prone Skin

Sunblock Lotion SPF 30 PA++ – for all skin types

Sunlite Spray SPF 30 – for all skin types

Price

Rs 145 for 100 ml

Rs 95 for 50 ml

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.

Summing up,

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.

  1. Great post, I too have used Blossom Kochhar’s Aroma Magic Products for quite a while. Very Good Range of Products.

  2. Great review Shri! This sunscreen sounds good for dry skin I will suggest my sister to try. If I don’t like a product by a brand I usually avoid that brand hehehe. 🙂

    • Thanks girl! yeah, this is really nice for dry skin. But more like a moisturizer with SPF, since the sun protection is quite low in this. Hahaha, I know what you’re saying.
