I have been trying to pay more attention to my skincare over the past few months, which now involves using photo-sensitive ingredients on my skin. This is why I am literally slathering sunscreen on my face every single morning, and for those super hectic days when you don’t even have time to brush your hair, I reach for day creams that contain SPF to kill two birds with one stone. With the nip in the air making my skin flaky and dry, I need something rich, hydrating, yet non-greasy, and the Greenberry Organics Bio Active Bright Day Cream offers me exactly this and much more!
I have been eyeing both the day cream and the night cream from Greenberry Organics since the time they were launched by the brand but was waiting to finish up the creams I had with me already before adding these to my cart. Somehow the stars aligned themselves and as soon as I was about to finish my current day cream, Greenberry Organics kindly sent me across these products! I have been using this day cream for about a week now so this will be a first impressions style review because I wanted to speak about the product before winter reached its peak. So here are my thoughts on this lovely day cream.
This cream comes in a sturdy jar with a leakproof insert inside the screw on lid which makes the product travel-friendly. The formula has a thick, creamy consistency, quite similar to that of a cold cream, but sinks into the skin really well and does not leave the face greasy at all. Bear in mind that this is a very rich cream, so you do not want to go in with a large dollop of product – a little goes a long way and too much cream may look streaky and white on the face. Just dip your finger into the tub and dot that much cream all over your face and gently massage it in to get supple and soft skin that looks radiant. The cream contains saffron extracts that always help to add a glow and brightness to my face and it also contains aloe vera and olive oil that provide the right amount of nourishment without clogging the pores. I feel that this cream is one of the most nourishing day creams that I have ever used without being too heavy on my skin, something that will work well for all skin types but particularly for dry to normal skin. The presence of SPF 25+ is the cherry on top of the cake because even if I don’t have the time to layer on my products, I can step out of the house without worrying about sun damage.
Overall, I do not see any cons of purchasing this product other than the fact that some people may find the tub packaging unhygienic. However, I don’t see how such a thick product could be packaged if not in a tub – just keep your hands clean while touching your face and you will be fine. I love the pleasant fragrance of the cream and its comforting texture that takes me back to my childhood days of using a cold cream throughout the colder months. Fortunately, this product is not as greasy as the cold creams from back in the day and is also all-natural and free of parabens and mineral oil. Just like the other skincare products from the brand, this day cream has managed to fully impress me. The cream is priced at INR 575 for a 50gm tub but is currently available at INR 500 on Amazon. Grab it now if you are someone who is lazy with their skincare and suffers from parched skin during the winter months.
