Before proceeding onto the trip, my biggest concern was a good sunscreen that can work on beach and for all of us including my 2 year old son.
I was checking a lot of reviews and brands and getting info from my friends too. Then, I visited a local store in my nearby market. This store stocks all good brands and almost always runs some offers. I selected Lotus and Loreal Paris sunscreens there, but then, some new brand caught my eye. It was Organic Harvest. The SA for that brand was well aware of everything and was very helpful and was trained from the company itself. She showed me many products from the brand. But, as I had eyes for sunscreen only that day, so was not seriously looking at any other item. But I remember, they have a decent and useful range. If the products come out good, then I would surely love to stock up from them.
Organic Harvest has 3 varieties of sunscreens –
– Gel based SPF 15
– Cream/Lotion SPF30
– Cream/Lotion SPF60
I got the highest version with SPF60 as I needed extra protection from Andamans scorching sun and weather. I wanted full protection. I was not going to use it on face so its suitability for my oily acne prone skin was not an issue. For that I had Neutrogena sun block SPF 50.
Very little quantity is required, that takes away the negativity of its cost. 5 of us were applying it daily on hands, feet, necks, and face also (except me and Ritcha). And it worked great. No problem encountered by any of us. A totally safe workable product. I tried using a small quantity at my face too but no adverse reactions or breakouts. I used it liberally for my 2 year old sonalso and it worked well for him too.
Since, we headed for beaches in late afternoons, we didn’t need to apply it twice but it worked well for us in a single application. For those days, when we toured the whole day having only afternoons at hotel, we used it twice. This sunscreen saved us from lots of suntan. Obviously, we could not escape tanning in Andamans, but we were not even expecting it. Sunscreen, for me, was only a way of reducing tanning and that it did perfectly.
This Organic Harvest sunscreen is sweat – resistent, so, humid weather is not a problem. It worked for me. I am satisfied with the product.
This sunscreen comes in a plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. Very convenient and travel friendly packaging. Only 2-3 dispenses were enough to cover my full hand.
What the brand says about the product –
A sweat-resistant formula, it creates a shield on your skin to combat the harmful effects of UV-A & UV-B rays. Use it daily, before going out in the sun.

Overall Rating –
I would not hesitate in repurchasing this again but since, normally, we don’t require this much SPF, I would this time try their gel based SPF 15 sunscreen or SPF 30 version. Also, in my must buy list, is their scrub which SA tried on my hand.
