I absolutely love the concept behind Aroma Magic. They believe in Natural ingredients and all their products would be AROMA based ones, with logic behind using a particular Aroma for a particular product. Have you seen blossom’s FB page, quite nice & informative!!!
This time it is Blossom Kochhar - Aroma Magic Sunblock Lotion spf 30 PA ++ from +Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic
Not only my eyes but my skin is also quite photosensitive...as if was a plant in my previous birth, reacting immediately to sunrays. Gosh...i hate my tanned skin.
I have been using Fabindia Sunscreen since last one year but wanted to try a new brand with broad spectrum UVA and UVB for better effects.
BTW let me tell you what spf, PA and broad spectrum means and why we need sunscreen- Well i guess i need to give separate post for the terms but let me tell you some important points worth noting -
1. Sunscreen/sunblock is necessary to prevent skin damages from sun exposure
2. Sun block is better as sunblock contains sun rays reflector which sun screen only absorbs sunrays; sunblock gives broad spectrum coverage from UVA & UVB both.
3. spf ensures only UVB protection i.e. protection from sunburns while PA enures UVA i.e. from skin mutations and Ageing.
4. Broad Spectrum ensures both spf and PA protection.
Back to my story…...Let me tell you i am a Store Buyer and prefers it compared to online purchases, this gives you not only physical access but also attractive discounts (smile)
So when i visited my store this time, this new tube immediately caught my attention and that too from Aroma, Try to banta hai...isn’t it?
Well here comes my views & reviews-
Packaging - Nice Amber/mustard yellow opaque tube with flip cap ( easy to carry in your bag). This new packaging with prints is quite attractive and hence easy to locate too. Although a little transparent stripe on sides would have worked well to assess the quantity left. its one amongst their new range of sunscreens launched in june- Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic All Natural Mineral Line sun protection range. There are 5 variants in this range with spf 15, 20 & 30.This new range claims to have no harsh chemicals, benzoates, parabens (wow), alcohol and artificial fragrances (all natural aroma) and is suitable for all ages.
I like the way the product introduces itself..
I am 100% free of Oxybenzone, Paraben, harsh chemicals, alcohol and artificial fragrance. My all mineral, ultra effective formula creates a physical barrier between you and the sun. I am non greasy, skin friendly and enriched with carrot seed, wheatgerm and jojoba oils. They provide natural sun safety, vitamin B5, C, E and prevent visible signs of ageing. Notes of Helicrysum, Calendula and Roman Chamomile essential oils heal scars and mattify your skin.The nano zinc oxide in me is a mineral reflector found in nature that scatters harmful rays, green tea extracts promote elasticity and provide smart sun protection.
How to use - Knead the tube with your hands and give a good shake as the natural ingredients tend to separate. Apply me generously 15 minutes before sun exposure for desired protection. Use ½ tsp to protect your face and 1tbsp to cover skin from head to toe. i am perfect complement to your daily make up routine too.
Caution - Reapply every 90 minutes and every 30 minutes if you are doing anyting active, thats causing you to work up a sweat and always after swimming.
Contains - Purified water, Organic beewax, Zinc oxide, Daucus Carota Sativa seed oil (carrot seed oil), Vegetable glycerin, Triticum Vulgare germ oil ( wheatgerm oil), Camellia sinensis (green tea) extract, Aloe Barbadensis gel, Simmondsia chinensis seed oil (jojoba oil), Anthemis Nobilis (Roman Chamomile) Essential Oil, Ascorbic Acid, Helichrysum Flower Essential Oil, Calendula Officinalis Essential Oil, Sodium Riboflavin phosphate, Pantathenol.
Net Content - 100 mlMRP - Rs 290 (i got it at 10% discount)i.e. Rs 260.
Expiry - 36 months from the date of mfg.
My take on the product - it been last 1 month i am using and it is always kept in my Bag. As it is quite evident a nice pack with literally no or mild fragrance which do not irritate my sensitive nose. Consistency - Fluid but not runny and narrow mouthed flip cap opening controls extra flow too. Easily spreads and gives good sun protection, also quite suitable to apply before your make up base too. No oiliness and hence no break outs. No white cast. Matte finish ...but adds to glow probably because of essential oils. No greasiness so not dirt on your face. it is purely a sunblock as it do not have much of moisturising quality, so a moisturiser is always a must. Pocket friendly with affordable price. Anyone from a college girl to working women can have it. Quantity is also good enough which may last for a couple of months at minimum (when sitting in office).
Overall - Nice, effective and affordable and top of all 100% natural …..Love it and would recommend to everyone.
Rating - 4.9/5- since tube is opaque which makes it difficult to assess amount left.
