My Take on Biotique Carrot Protective Lotion with Vitamin A+C SPF 40:

This sunscreen lotion comes in same boring packaging as all other Biotique products. It comes in a translucent white bottle with a green screw cap. The mouth of the bottle is quite wide and you have to control the amount by pressing the bottle lightly.

Biotique Carrot Protective Lotion with Vitamin A+C SPF 40It has mild herbal fragrance which is nothing pleasing and neither irritating. I bought this lotion because of its claims of having vitamin A and C in it as vitamin A and C are amazing antioxidants and repairs sun damage and also protects against free radicals. Dermatologist always advises to use a product with vitamin A and C in the morning or a sunscreen with these two vitamins. That’s because they boost the level of sun protection and makes your sunscreen more effective protecting you from harmful sun rays, pollution and free radicals generated by the environment. Vitamin A and C are also effective in protecting against aging as the main purpose of these vitamins being an antioxidant is to protect against early aging.

So coming back to this lotion, Biotique products are very heavy and not apt for use in summers as they make the skin oily and greasy. This lotion is very thick in consistency and is quite heavy for use in summers and it does not do anything major for my skin. But yeah, it surely keeps me protected against sun and saves me from sun burn. But the fact that it does not have any PA+ protection turns me off and now I’m planning to use it on my body as it is quite thick plus has sun protection of SPF 40 and antioxidants so I’m sure it will make a great body lotion though it’s not for face as it makes skin oily and makes me sweat a lot.
I just used it on my body loved the fact that it does not feel greasy or sticky on body and absorbs easily while moisturizing the skin well so I’ll end up using it on my body now though it’s not good for face at all at least not for summers.

    I totally agree with you about Biotique sunscreen Arzoo… I have the SPF 75 version and it is very heavy too. I use it on arms and other exposed parts. It protects them really well :)
