Hey beautiful, as you know, wearing a sunscreen is must, and not only in summers but in winters as well. So, I’m always on the lookout for effective, preferably organic, sunscreens that would suit my sensitive plus combination skin. This quest led me to Organic Harvest sunscreen, as I had already purchased their face wash. And now after having used it for more than 3 weeks, here is my review of Organic Harvest Sunscreen SPF50.
About the company
Organic harvest offers products made with organically harvested plants, which means they are not contaminated by any chemical preservatives or fertilizers. This makes their products more effective and potent, without any harsh chemicals. They offer products in face, body, hair grooming range.
This is one of the unusual sunscreens in the sense that it claims to provide dual protection, both inside and outside. As per the company claims, this sunscreen provides protection from sun damage as well as blue rays from digital devices. Since blue rays are one of the major causes for under eye dark circles, this is a major saviour for people who spend lot of time in front of computer screens.
The sunscreen comes in a white colour Organic Harvest squeeze tube with a flip-top. The flip-top is sufficiently tight and ensures there is no leak. This makes it travel-friendly and can be carried safely in the bag.
The tube in itself is printed in very basic colour, with details being printed at the back
How to use
“Apply a generous amount all over the face, neck and exposed areas of the skin 20 mins prior to to sun exposure. For best results , apply Organic Harvest Moisturising lotion prior to sunscreen.”
It does not mention for how long it stays effective or when it should be re-applied.
This sunscreen has thick, cream-like consistency. It has string herbal-y scent which I find it a bit strong. People with sensitive nose may find it overpowering.
100g tube is available at INR 465 but you may find it at lower price online.
Organic Harvest Sunscreen SPF50 review
I generally prefer sunscreens which can double up as moisturiser as this saves me the time to layer up my products. With that in mind, I tried the same with this sunscreen. I applied it directly to check its moisturising capability. It was difficult to apply this sunscreen, plus post-application, my skin felt dry and stretched. Next time, I applied a good moisturiser before using this sunscreen and it was much easier to distribute this sunscreen. Even my skin also felt properly moisturised and supple.
Post application, the cream absorbs easily and does not leave a white cast.
Due to its thick consistency, this sunscreen is a tad bit difficult to apply. I usually apply 4 dots, chin, both cheeks and forehead and mix it all together. As said, it was difficult to distribute this sunscreen on its own. It spread easily when applied on top of a moisturiser. So I will say, this sunscreen is suitable for oily and combination skin. Dry skinned beauties may need to apply a good moisturizer before using this.
As said earlier, along with this sunscreen, I had also changed my face wash and in beginning, got a couple of random pimples. But within the first week, it got under control and I did not get any other pimple. This sunscreen did not cause any major break out so people with sensitive and acne-prone skin can also give it a shot.
I have been using this for more than 3 weeks and have been continuing with my usual activities. I’m wearing this in December as well, since these days, I like soaking in the sun as much as possible. And in both the scenarios, this sunscreen has provided me good protection and has protected me from suntan.
I’m not sure about dark circles claim, as I don’t have much dark circles to begin with. But this sunscreen did not cause any problem in sensitive area around the eye, so that’s a plus.
