Aroma Magic Aloe Vera Sunscreen Gel SPF 20 Review


Aroma Magic Aloe Vera Sunscreen Gel SPF 20 Review


1)It is a gel based sunscreen in SPF 20 version which provides UVA and UVB sun protection.

2)Easy availability and affordable.

3)It is moisturising sunscreen which is suitable for normal-dry skin types.

4)It absorbs quickly and leaves no white cast.

5)Zinc oxide based sunscreen which is a physical sunscreen.



1)It broke me out.

2)It is highly comedogenic so it is not suitable for oily and acne prone skin.

3)Despite meant for oily skin,it is not oil-free product.It contains a lot of oils-peppermint oil,grapeseed oil, chamomile oil,wheatgerm oil,calendula oil,avocado oil which are not only comedogenic but not required for oily skin either.

4)I am not sure if the ingredient list disclosed is complete or partial list.

5)SPF 20 is not sufficient for outdoors.

Directions for use:

Apply required quantity of sunscreen 20 minutes before stepping outside in the sun.Re-apply at regular intervals.

Final Verdict:

I liked a couple of Aroma magic face washes.I bought this since it was one a gel based sunscreen but unfortunately broke me out.It is definitely not suitable for oily and acne prone skin.I do not understand the logic when a company claims it is a product meant for oily and acne prone skin and makes it comedogenic.Just because it is gel base does not mean it is safe for oily skin.These brands really need to know the difference between comedogenic and non-comedogenic products.Very disappointed with this product and I wouldn't recommend it either for oily skin types.On the other end,Normal skin types will like it.SPF 20 version is enough for indoors but does not provide enough protection for outdoors.An average sunscreen nothing exceptional!

My Rating:1.5/5
