Biotique Bio Aloe Vera face and body sun lotion SPF 50 review
Hey ladies, we usually think sunscreen is necessary, when it is sunny outside. It’s a false notion as on cloudy days, we are equally getting exposed to the harsh UV rays unknowingly. So, sunscreen is to be applied every day, irrespective of the weather. Having said that, I will be reviewing a sun lotion from the famous brand called Biotique. I have used many skin care products and was satisfied. So, let’s read more about it.
My last review was on Lotus herbals seduction botanical tinted lip gloss in sappy watermelon. Do give a read.

My experience with the Biotique Bio Aloe Vera face and body sun lotion SPF 50
The thing that attracted me to buy this sunscreen was its SPF. A 50 SPF at this range was quite shocking. Biotique Bio Aloe Vera sun lotion comes in a usual inverted tube. The lotion is quite runny which I didn’t like. If you are not careful with the cap, lotion could spill over easily.
It has a very strong herbal smell which was irritating. The smell lasts for about an hour and then it disappears. Those who don’t like such herbal fragrance should not buy it. Apart from this, it did fairly good job as a sun lotion.
The Biotique bio aloe vera sun lotion is not sticky on face which was a plus point. However, it takes 2-3 minutes time to absorb. It contains all the natural ingredients and no harmful chemicals. The staying power is around 3 hours which is not great for a sunscreen.
Overall, I have mixed feelings for this product from Biotique. Things which impressed me were high SPF, non sticky nature, moisturizes skin well.
Would I recommend the Biotique Bio aloe vera face and body sun lotion SPF 50?
I won’t buy for myself that’s for sure. I would look out for more mild fragrance sunscreen. However, if you don’t have an issue with the herbal smell and staying power, you can give a try.
