Hi girls, My post is Biotique Bio Sandalwood Face and Body Sun Lotion Review. Summers are about to set in and with them comes a major skin concern of sun damage. Sun damages skin in more than one ways. It leads to increased production of melanin and hence tanning and is also a chief culprit behind skin ageing and has also been prompted to be responsible for certain kinds of skin cancers. It is of at most importance to shield yourselves from sun using scarves, umbrellas and sun screen lotions. There are a plenty of sunscreens, sun gels, sun blocks out there in market but I have had a bad experience with most of them due to their tacky, sticky consistency.
Two of my favourites are Water resistant sunscreen and fairness lotion from Jovees and Biotique Bio Sandalwood Face and Body Sun Lotion. I am reviewing the latter, here. Read on to know why this sun lotion is one of my favorites! BIOTIQUE is synonymous with serious skin and hair care developed from Ayurveda. It embodies the collection of traditions developed by the ancient sages, passed down from generation to generation. This one is made out of herbs and natural products so I am very happy that my skin would be safe from Parabens and loads of other cosmetics.
