Aroma Magic is a quite well-known brand and their products are pretty pocket-friendly yet good on the skin. I recently tried their Clary Sage Moisturizing Lotion which I bought from Nykaa. This lotion is particularly for people with combination skin and I tend to be on the side of the oily skin. But I tried this one because Aroma magic products are really affordable and they are almost always good. So no harm in trying right!
Price and Quantity: A 100 ml Bottle retails for INR 205. There is a 200 ml version as well. It comes in a clear plastic bottle. The packaging is very travel-friendly and by the way, it is recycled. So pretty great. It comes with a pump dispenser which is super helpful.
Description (As mentioned in the packaging):
The Aroma Magic Clary Sage Moisturizing Lotion is rich in natural vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids, and the combination of Kokum butter, Aloe vera juice, and Olive oil to nurture and deeply hydrate the skin. The exotic blend of Neroli, Clary sage, and Rosewood essentials oils together with extracts of clary sage, help to preserve the moisture in the skin. Their alliance keeps the skin calm and rejuvenated with each passing day. Extracts of Fennel and Lemongrass revive dull and tired skin to leave you refreshed and your skin reinvigorated.

My take on the product:
The lotion contains a lot of essential oils and is specially made for people with combination skin types. It has a medium thick yet very soft and creamy consistency. It blends effortlessly with my BB cream. It blends really well into my skin even if I am not mixing with any other product. It also gets absorbed within a few minutes. The lotion feels very light on skin and does not nake the skin look greasy at all.
It has been formulated in a way so that it becomes more suitable for combination skin. However, it did not make my skin feel heavy or sweaty which usually other lotion does. I have been using Aroma Magic’s Juniper Berry oil-free moisturizer for more than a year now and it has been specially made for oily skin beauties. The clary sage lotion is definitely creamier and a lot thicker than the Juniper Berry moisturizer which basically feels like a serum. But the Clary sage lotion locks more moisture into my skin for a longer hour. It gives a soft and dewy finish to my skin. The smell of the lotion is very soothing and pleasant which is a very common factor for all Aroma Magic products.
Like its claims, the lotion provides a rich moisturization to my skin. It instantly makes my skin soft and smooth, and my skin looks healthy too. It repairs the dry, rough texture and keeps my skin hydrated for long. It is not a heavy moisturizer but works well in providing sufficient moisturization to the skin. I think the lotion will work for all skin types but, it contains a few essential oils. So, please check before buying. If you have very oily skin then this lotion may be better for you in Winter or monsoon. It contains SPF 15 which I think is fine for our current stay-at-home situation. I also like to apply it to my neck and to my hands and it keeps them hydrated for quite some time.
Overall, I will give it a rating of 4 out of 5 and will definitely purchase it again in Winter.
