After the recent Neutrogena debacle, I became skeptical about using other moisturizers that promise to be good for oily skin. That’s when I came across the Aroma Magic Juniper Berry moisturizer. It looked watery and lightweight and hence I decided to give it a try.
I am 100% free of petrochemicals, phthalates, toxic ingredients, parabens, artificial fragrance and colour. Enriched with SPF 15, I protect, moisturize, and brighten your skin.
The multi-tasking extracts of Juniper Berry and Cucumber act as efficient anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents protecting the skin from the sun by guarding it against harmful free radicals.
My blend of patchouli and lemon essential oils helps regulate the oil level in the skin. Together with Aloe Vera juice, my non-greasy gel formula helps heal acne and lighten blemishes leaving your skin well nourished, refreshed and brighter.

My Experience Using Aroma Magic Juniper Berry Moisturizer Review:
My first thought when I squeezed out the moisturizer was that this is too light-weight to actually moisturize my skin. It comes out like a runny gel but on application feels just like water.
The skin absorbs it in few seconds leaving no trace of a moisturizer used. This is because this product is meant to hydrate not moisturize.
Oily skin produces enough sebum to moisturize itself, hence what the skin really needs is something to hydrate after the cleansing. And this is exactly what the Aroma Magic Juniper berry moisturizer does.
It is packed with humectants like glycerin, aloe vera and hyaluronic acid which leaves the skin supple and hydrated.
There is zero greasiness which makes it perfect for the summers. But during winters, it might be insufficient if your sky turns dry.
Also, this moisturizer will work well if you like to layer your skincare products due to its lightweight formula. The only con is that I cannot spot any preservative that justifies the shelf life so seems like the ingredient list is incomplete.
- Made with natural ingredients
- No artificial colour or fragrance
- Affordable and easily available
- Lightweight formula hydrates well
- Perfect for summers
- Did not break me out
- Incomplete ingredient list
