Should all suncream not look like this? I love the packaging of Green Energy Organics SPF with deckchairs, parasols, a beach and a lovely blue sea and sky and it’s really made me wonder why brands mainly put nil effort into suncare packaging. I mean, it’s pretty much all yellow or orange.
It’s impossible for me to recommend or not recommend Green Energy Organics SPF because I haven’t used it yet, but it’s a vegan formula and I imagine that they’re not thick on the ground. There are five products in the line-up – all beautifully packaged – including SPF 50 for children, and SPF15, an aftersun and a Shampoo & Shower Gel for salt water. Green Energy Organics SPF doesn’t contain mineral oil, paraffin or parabens and uses a certified organic formula based on plant stem cells. Oh, and the packaging is recyclable. Texture wise, it’s silky! I’ve tested it on my arms and it feels like I’m wearing a very good moisturiser, and scent wise it’s very lightly perfumed – I’d say just generically sun-creamy scented.
Green Energy Organics is an interesting brand from Italy – their other products for face and body aren’t as beautifully packaged as their sunscreens I must admit, but it immediately caught my eye for being very different and just, well, happy looking! It’s also very well priced at £14.95 HERE and very much worth investigating if you’re looking for organic protection.

I have never heard of this brand before but I really like the sound of the products. I will have to get my hands on them.
Looks fantastic, so original! Hope the products match the packaging, would love to try them as I live in the sun & am always looking for good protection (preferably organic ranges too!).
Pretty bottle! #grabbyhands
You’re so right re: standard sunscreen packaging! Most are merely functional and “hey, this is GOOD for you, damnit!”
One of the few brands with personality I’ve seen on this side of the screen is an outfit from Florida called SunBum, with faux wood-grain bottles, a ’70s vintage vibe and a cartoon gorilla-face mascot, aimed at the beach-bum millenial. Totally quirky-cute, but maybe not yet available in the UK?
And there’s Coola from San Diego, with its attractive aqua + white flowers palette. Do you have that brand there? Like Green Energy, they’re all about their organic cream base; important to note, though, that they use it with chemical sunscreen ingredients as well as mineral. (Green Energy uses only titanium dioxide as their filter? Impressive re: SPF 50!)
Whoops, just spotted zinc oxide in the Green Energy ingredients list on the website. So titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. And charming bottle art!
