The Nature's Co. review

Lucky me received a few products from The Nature's Co. a couple of weeks ago to review! So sweet of them to do that :) On opening the package I discovered  the Cool Cucumber Body Lotion from the Aquaspark range and the Citronella Insect Repellent from the Foressence range. While I was really happy seeing the body lotion, I was in a fix how to review the insect repellent. Keep reading to see how I finally did that ;)

Before I go ahead with the review, there is one thought of mine that I wanted to share. As far as body care products are concerned, I always prefer using them for a few weeks especially lotions, creams and serums before judging results rather than giving an overnight review because it is important to check whether the effects with use over time are as claimed/desired. Now that's what I choose to follow but others can have their own views on this :)

The Nature's Co. has a wide range of environment friendly beauty products that are meant to enrich and renew your skin. All their products are manufactured using natural hill spring water with natural preservatives and contain ingredients that are against animal cruelty, vegan and of best quality from across the globe - every point that one must consider before buying a body or hair care product.

The Nature’s Co. explores the five purest forms of nature - the elements air, sun, forest, earth and water by creating five distinct ranges - Atmospure, Starrize, Foressence, Earthborne and Aquaspark that imbibe qualities inspired by the respective element.

Let me tell you now about the products I received:

The Cool Cucumber Body Lotion from the Aquaspark range

The Aquaspark range products contain aquatic and coastal ingredients. The Cool Cucumber body lotion's main ingredient is the cucumber grown near the coasts. My skin type is predominantly dry and with the winters approaching I need more moisturising. While most moisturisers don't have too much of a hydrating effect on my skin causing me to scrap using them, this one fared much better. My usual regime involves application of this lotion on moist skin after my bath. Over the days of use I noticed that my skin stayed hydrated and also became more supple and softer. Infact a few dry patches also became soft thus indicating that it also repairs the skin. It has a very fresh smell and is totally non-greasy. Infact it gets absorbed instantly and does'nt leave a layer thus causing me not to worry about the dirt and grime outside sticking to my skin. While this will work perfect for me in Mumbai, knowing my skin type this won't work for me in severe colder climates and will have to be combined with other products. But stand alone in the current weather conditions, I would rate this 7.5/10. Priced at Rs. 495/- for 250 ml, its a super buy especially for the ones looking at softening and repairing their skin.

The Citronella Insect Repellent Spray from the Foressence range

The Foressence range products mainly contain ingredients available in the forrests. The Citronella Insect Repellent spray contains citronella, eucalyptus oil and lemon grass oil, all natural insect repellents. It has a strong but pleasant smell. When I received this, I was super confused as to how do I test this out as I don't really have an issue of insectss or mosquitoes in my house. But then we started having regular power cuts in the night and that is when the spray came to my rescue - when the stupid musquitoes started biting me as the fans were not on :) I also went on a trip to the North and used to religiously apply this every night and POOF there was nothing biting me! If you are looking at wearing it over 6 hours, a re-application is recommended. I would rate this 7/10. Priced at Rs. 450/-  for 100 ml, its steep in price compared to the other musquito repellent creams, but for the natural ingredients that it contains, its a suggested buy.

All products of The Nature's Co. have a minimum shelf life of 18 months and they have Recycle bins in the stores where they encourage consumers to bring back the empty bottles for recycling. They have 1 store in Delhi and 2 stores in Mumbai where they offer complimentary spa services alongwith sale of products.
