An ultra lightweight oil free moisturizer for oily skin with SPF

Oil free moisturizer for oily skin with SPF Review

It’s a myth that oily skin types don’t need a moisturizer. How much ever your skin is oily, you still need to moisturizer post cleansing. Skipping a moisturizer can signal your skin to produce more oil thereby clogging pores and hence acne outbreaks. You certainly need a moisturizer to maintain the skin’s natural balance that was lost due to cleansing. Today I’ve come up with a review of one such product which is the Aroma Magic Juniper Berry oil free moisturizer for oily skin with SPF. It is specially meant for oily and very oily skin types. So if you have dry skin. Just skip this review. Let’s hop onto the details of the product first.

About Aroma Magic Juniper Berry oil free moisturizer for oily skin with SPF :

Price: 190 INR for 100 ml. Available in health & glow outlets.

My take on Aroma Magic Juniper Berry oil free moisturizer for oily skin with SPF:

Starting off with the packaging! As you can see, it comes in a translucent bottle with a pump dispenser. The pump works with no issues, the bottle is user friendly, travel-friendly, details of the product are clearly printed on the packaging, price & expiry date mentioned, Everything is on point. You can ask for nothing more and it has the perfect packaging one would look for.

Moving on to the other features, the oil free moisturizer, though it looks semi-white on the bottle, comes out transparent and has a runny almost water like consistency. The fragrance is a little bit bothering for me, but for its lightweight texture I can bear that for a few minutes. It subsides post application so don’t worry. I cannot relate the smell to anything that I know. It may be juniper berry but I cannot assure you since I do not know how juniper berry smells like. However, they do mention that they do not add artificial fragrance, so I’m relieved on that front.

Onto the application part, I apply this post cleansing and toning during the day. I take two pumps of the moisturizer on one of my palm, gently pat once between both the palms and dab on my skin while my skin is still damp. It gets soaked in a few seconds and feels ultra lightweight on the skin. It does not provide any extra moisturization or hydration as such but just locks in the moisture that is already there on the skin. That is why I would recommend using it on damp skin. Even the usage instruction suggest using it after cleansing, toning & oiling (means using a serum) .

Once applied, it makes your skin look matte with zero oiliness or dewiness. It also controls oil and keeps my skin oil free and hydrated at the same time for long hours. The oil free moisturizer is enriched with SPF 15 which is certainly minimal for our Indian summers. But since I hardly go out nowadays and mostly skip sunscreen while indoors, I find this to be a plus. At least it would protect me from sun-rays that comes through my balcony window.

It claims to restore skin & lighten blemishes. I can’t say much about it as I don’t have blemishes as such, only those one or two occasionally acne marks that fades away over time, even if I didn’t do anything. But I can say it does brighten up the skin a bit after application.

Overall, I very much liked using this oil free moisturizer from Aroma Magic. I haven’t come across such a lightweight moisturizer before and I would highly recommend very oily skin types to try this. If you are someone who had the thought that moisturizers would never suit you, give this a try, I’m sure you will love this!

  • Perfect packaging with pump dispenser.
  • Reasonably priced.

  8. Hi! thanks for the detailed review. I would like to know if I could apply powder after using this moisturizer? My current routine is cleansing, applying aloe vera gel, let it dry out, apply moisturizer and then compact powder for finishing. I recently came to know that my moisturizer has harmful chemicals which might have aggravated my acne and also has no SPF properties. I am thinking of switching to this one. Can you please guide me? Thank you once again.

    1. You could very well apply a powder on top of this moisturizer. It is best to use a serum underneath this moisturizer rather than aloe vera gel because the consistency of this is very thin and aloe vera gel would be thicker. Ideally it is best to apply products from thinner to thicker consistency for better absorption. If you are exposed to sunlight for more than 20 minutes, it is best to use a separate sunscreen, as this alone would not suffice. I hope my answer was a bit helpful.
