Hey! I am so excited for today’s review. Don’t mind me, I get excited when the product is interesting aka when I’ve much to talk about it. Anyway, cutting the chase, today I’m sharing Biotique Bio Sandalwood Sunscreen Review 50+ SPF.
I hope you are wearing your sunscreen everyday and not skipping it even if it’s cloudy outside. Guilty? Then this may interest you!
Product Name: Biotique Bio Sandalwood Sunscreen 50+ SPF UVA/UVB Ultra Soothning Face Lotion
Price & Quantity: It will cost you INR 200 for 50 ml of the product.
Shelf Life: 12 months once opened.
Availability: Easily available online as well as offline, across the stores and Biotique counters. I got mine online. You can buy here, currently at Rs. 60 off. You can also check the water resistant variant here, which is currently on a discount of Rs. 116!
Ingredients: Refer to the image below. Although, it is incomplete list, as always.
Packaging & Appearance: Biotique Bio Sandalwood Sunscreen comes in a yellow-orangey tube with a flip cap. Simple and hassle-free packaging, I’ll say. Details about the product are mentioned on it.
Sunscreen is of medium consistency, more on the medium thin combination and off-white in color.
Smell: It smells weird, like I don’t know how to explain the aroma, it’s kind of medicinal & Ayurvedic maybe. Whatever it’s, definitely it isn’t sandalwood fragrance, as sandalwood fragrance is much better than this. The smell isn’t my favorite but it’s fine. It doesn’t bother me now, after regular usage!
Claims: They claim the following –
• Suitable for all skin types
• Ayurvedic Recipe
• 100% Botanical Extracts
Swatch: Check out the image below.
My Experience: Let me quickly tell you that Biotique is one of my favourite skincare brands. Their USP has to be affordability & quality. So, if you’ve not tried Biotique yet, you definitely need to. You’re surely gonna love it.
Coming back to the review, I’ve combination skin which can be very greasy in summer. Hence, I prefer lightweight products that don’t make me feel tacky. This is when Biotique Sunscreen pops up.
With SPF 50+, it is quite lightweight and non-sticky. It absorbs well and good, without making me feel oily. Also, it absorbs quite quick as the texture isn’t thick. As per its claim, I can see it working with all the skin types, but dry skin beauties shouldn’t skip their moisturizer.
Another good thing about this sunscreen is that I can easily top it with a BB/CC cream, and not feel cakey or anything of that sort. It didn’t form a whitish cast on my face, which I absolutely love. If I’m being outdoor for most of the time, I do reapply but mostly I don’t. This sunscreen does an amazing job and I’m quite impressed with it!
*. Works good
*. SPF 50+

Jhalli Diva Verdict: 4/5
Will I Repurchase?
Not for now, but surely in future. I’m going to try other sunscreens in the time-being but I can see coming back to this yellowish tube!
Do I Recommend?
Absolutely! Do give this one a try for sure. If you are wondering if this Biotique sunscreen is for oily skin, then let me tell you, yes it is!!
Overall Summary: Overall, I love Biotique sunscreen, it’s lightweight and non-greasy. It doesn’t make my combination skin feel overwhelmed, if you know what I mean! Another good thing, is the affordable price. So I highly recommend it!
