Sunscreen is an essential part of skincare and during summers, it becomes the most important step especially if you are in India. If you have oily and sensitive skin and you are on a hunt for a chemical-free sunscreen for your skin type, then this post might be helpful to you.


Finding a lightweight sunscreen for oily skin is a mission and I guess this mission will never end because there are pros and cons in every sunscreen I use.

I have found one chemical-free which is working quite good for my skin and suits me well. I am talking about Biotique Bio Aloe Vera 30+ SPF UVA/UVB Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion for Normal to Oily Skin. Phew! That's a long name. Let's get into details.

Review of Biotique Aloe Vera SPF 30+ UVA/UVB Sunscreen (Normal to Oily Skin)

Because of oily skin, sunscreen always made my skin oily, shiny and heavy. I was never comfortable with the texture of sunscreens. And when I found some, they were unable to find again in the market.

Because some of the Biotique Products such as their Morning Nectar Moisturizer, Peel-off mask and Cleansers worked good, I already had a positive feeling with this one.

Packaging: It comes in a plastic tube bottle with a screw cap. The lotion is bit runny but thanks to the inner nozzle as it controls the flow of product. Also, it is clearly mentioned on the packaging that it is a face lotion and is for normal to oily skin.

SPF and PA level is clearly mentioned on the label i.e, SPF30 and PA+. SPF30 is good as it is the at least SPF you should use but PA+ is less for UVA/UVB Protection. I prefer PA++ or more.

Fragrance: I found the fragrance mild but can be bit teasing for the super sensitive nose. The fragrance is kind of similar to sunflower or dandelion flowers

My Experience with Biotique Aloe Vera Sunscreen SPF 30+

My Skin Type: Oily, Sensitive and Acne-Prone. Oily in summers and Dry in Winters.

I have been using this for months and I feel like initially, it works great but later on, after months, the results or effectiveness gets changed. The lotion is runny and gets absorbed into my skin easily and within seconds. It is lightweight and doesn't make my skin shiny, oily or heavy. I don't even feel like I have something on my face. 

After applying, it gives a minor cooling sensation for a few seconds. It is actually calming and soothing to my skinAnother plus point is, it is moisturizing.

After a month of regular usage, I was clearly happy with the results and also there was no sign of sun-tan. But when the bottle was 50% used or after 2 months or so, I noticed that it is making my skin bit watery and bit sticky which no doubt, lasted for few minutes but I could easily notice the difference. I don't know if it is even a thing, but this happened.

It gives nourishment which is required and enough for oily skin. It keeps my skin nourished and sometimes when I feel like I need more, I apply my favourite, Biotique Morning Nectar Moisturizer or Innisfree Orchid Moisturizer on top of that and still, my skin feels light. So it is like a moisturizer with SPF or moisturizing sunscreen. 😄 I even use it before applying my makeup.

But during the humid season, it makes my skin watery and I also noticed it leaves little white balls on the skin. I don't know if the reason was perspiration or stickiness due to humidity.

Biotique Aloe Vera Sunscreen SPF 30+ Review
Biotique Aloe Vera Sunscreen SPF 30+ UVA/UVB (For Oily Skin)

This sunscreen is chemical-free and is made from 100% Botanical Extracts and Swiss Technology. I didn't face any rash, clogged pore, breakout or any other issue after using this but effectiveness changes after months of usage. I don't know if it is only me to face this.

In short, Biotique Aloe Vera Sunscreen SPF 30+ (Normal to Oily Skin) is natural and chemical free but with low PA factor. It is lightweight, soothing, moisturizing and is works good for my oily and sensitive skin without making my skin shiny or heavy initially but after months, it makes skin watery and sticky. I also didn't face any tan or sunburn issue or any kind of skin allergy after using this.

  1. I have tried this sunscreen and liked it. But they have mentioned only the key ingredients and am unable to believe you can get SPF 30 with only natural ingredients...

    1. Not to worry as aloe vera itself has SPF in it :) Also, after using this I didn't get tan neither any sun damage so it worked :)

    1. Yes it can be used on body as well. You can also go for higher SPF such as 50 SPF for increased sun protection. Try Biotique sandalwood 50 SPF Sunscreen or Kronokare 50 SPF Sunscreen .
