The Nature’s Co. Red and Green Tea Sunscreen Lotion Review

I rarely used to apply sunscreen during my college days. I took my skin for granted and luckily I did not suffer from any tan despite hanging around in sun for a long time. After I started blogging, I understood the importance of sunscreen and now I religiously apply it when I step out in the sun. Today I am going to review The Nature’s Co. Red and Green Tea Sunscreen Lotion which I got in December Travel Beauty Wish Box as sample.

The Nature’s Co. Red and Green Tea Sunscreen Lotion Review

Price: 445 INR Buy online on Flipkart

Net vol: 125ml

The Nature’s Co. says-
Protects skin from UV rays; Anti-oxidant & Moisturizing properties.

You can bravely face the sun with this all-natural sun protector. Red Tea will shield your skin from harsh UV rays while providing you with essential moisturizing and conditioning while Green Tea has powerful anti-oxidants properties. Massage it gently onto your face, neck, hands and other exposed parts of the body at least 30 minutes before going out in the sun.

MBT says-
The Nature’s Co. Red and Green tea Sunscreen Lotion comes in a sturdy, clear squeezable plastic tube with the same clear screw top lid. The full sized product has got flip open lid which is very convenient while traveling. The packaging is quite lightweight and can be easily carried around in a bag without any fear of leakage or spillage. The lotion is light yellow-ish brown in color with slightly strong sandalwood like fragrance though it does not contain sandalwood. If you are not fond of heavy fragranced products then this one might not impress you.
The texture of the sunscreen is soft and smooth with runny consistency. It spreads easily and gets absorbed within few minutes without leaving a greasy residue behind. It is quite moisturizing and I don’t feel the need to moisturize my oily skin prior application. It has been instructed by the company to apply sunscreen 30 minutes before any sun exposure though I apply it 15 minutes before. The sunscreen makes my skin soft, smooth and radiant. It does not make my skin oily for a good 2-3 hours. I usually set it with powder to ensure longer stay of the product. It doesn't feel heavy or give whitish cast to my face unlike other sunscreens. I have not faced any adverse effects whilst using this sunscreen. As I do not spend prolonged periods in the sun, I have not faced tanning issues. The sunscreen is meant to be reapplied frequently. I usually wipe it off with a tissue or wipe before reapplication. My only grumble with the product is that it does not mention SPF content. As a buyer, I do check SPF before purchasing any sunscreen.

Update: The brand commented below that they do not mention SPF as they use natural ingredients and do not add any further chemicals to get higher SPF. A natural sunscreen has SPF of not more than 25% that is good enough to protect your skin if you spend not so long time under the sun. I love natural products and now I really do not have any issue with the brand not mentioning the SPF!

  8. Dear Megha, Thanks for the lovely review…xoxo

    We don’t mention the SPF of the sunscreen as in other sunscreens they add further chemical components to derive a higher SPF but our product is made of natural ingredients and hence has a natural SPF of not more than 20-25. Which is good enough according to dermatologists to protect your skin. Since it depends on natural sources for its SPF value which can alter 1% more of less, we can’t make it a label claim. Hope we have solved your queries…
