Hey guys! Happy Diwali! Hope you all had a great fun filled and joyous Diwali at home! I am penning down review of Mamaearth HydraGel Indian Sunscreen today. You can avail discount on entire range of Vanity Wagon using discount code PEPILIO. Vanity Wagon is a one stop destination for many cruelty free brands like Dr. Sheth’s, Juicy Chemistry, Earth Rhythm, Dot & Key and lot more. This is a gel based sunscreen and I wanted to try ever since it got launched. I have used mineral sunscreen by Mamaearth too. Let’s dive into the review now.
Mamaearth HydraGel Indian Sunscreen with Aloe Vera & Raspberry for Sun Protection
We all know the damaging effects of the sun. Harmful UVA & UVB rays cause long term skin damage like sunburn, dark spots, dry and itchy skin. What’s the solution? Avoid sun damage by using a sunscreen that not only protects but also hydrates!
Mamaearth HydraGel Indian Sunscreen is made keeping in mind the needs of Indian skin. The gel-based formula with SPF 50 soothes the skin while protecting it from the harmful rays of the sun. Aloe Vera in the sunscreen has high anti-inflammatory properties and is extremely soothing. It also contains Raspberries that rejuvenate the skin and reverse signs of aging, such as fine lines, dark spots, and wrinkles. The light and non-greasy gel formula protects your skin from sun damage and also keeps it hydrated.
Price – 399 INR for 50ml tube
Mamaearth HydraGel Sunscreen comes in a flip top tube with outer box. The tube is flat and easy to carry while travelling.

My Experience with Mamaearth HydraGel Sunscreen
Firstly, I am impressed by the gel texture that feels very cooling on skin. I really wanted to try this variant as I liked mineral sunscreen by Mamaearth but it is a disappointment. While this sunscreen doesn’t leave any white caste and blending is very much easy, this leaves sticky finish on skin which makes me look like a grease ball and everyone keeps on asking me what you have applied on face!
I am currently using it on my body just for the sake of finishing it. Mamaearth Mineral sunscreen is far better than this. Hydragel sunscreen provides some hydration but as I said it leaves skin sticky which I hate. Plum Green tea sunscreen has very similar texture and I really like it over this one.
My Take on Mamaearth HydraGel Sunscreen
The only thing I don’t like about Mamaearth HydraGel Indian Sunscreen is the stickiness. It makes my skin sticky in whichever way I apply and I feel uncomfortable. Mineral sunscreen variant on the other hand is really good option compared to this one. I have used far better sunscreens like Pure by Priyanka, Klairs Airy soft, Keep Cool Sun Essence. I am not sure if dry skin beauties would like this or not but a definite NO for normal to oily skin types. I would not like this particular sunscreen but would highly recommend Mamaearth Mineral sunscreen.
