Summer is here and with the scorching heat of the sun, it is important to invest in a good sun block or sunscreen to avoid getting tanned. I have tried numerous sunscreens, even the Neutrogena sunscreen with SPF 100 and Lotus Sunscreen range, but I find Suncross the best sunscreen that is available in India.
Suncros gel was suggested to me by one of my cousins. I first thought that it is purely gel based; however, when I bought this sunscreen, I was disappointed to see the white cream, but the sunscreen completely lives up to its gel quality.
There are a few things you need to know about a sunscreen:
- Pea-size amount of sunscreen doesn’t help with sun protection. According to dermatologists, a teaspoon of sunscreen should be applied to the face for complete protection.
- You shouldn’t vigorously rub sunscreen onto your skin as it nullifies the effect of the sunscreen by a whopping 60%, you just need to tap the sunscreen on your skin.
- All the leading sunscreens in the market leave a white cast on my face whenever I apply them in copious quantities (which I seriously hate). Zinc-based Suncros is a gel-based sunscreen and doesn’t leave a white cast no matter what amount you apply.
Verdict on Ranbaxy’s Suncros Gel with SPF 26:
Women who are sensitive to sun rays and are easily prone to pigmentation should invest in this sunscreen as it blends easily into the skin and doesn’t leave a white cast on your face.
Pros of Ranbaxy’s Suncros Gel with SPF 26:
- Especially suited for oily skin, humid conditions and those prone to excessive sweating.
- Doesn’t leave a white cast.
- Blends easily into the skin (check out the swatch).
- Zinc based.
- Gel based.
Cons of Ranbaxy’s Suncros Gel with SPF 26:
- As soon as I apply the sunscreen, I feel that my skin has become oily (but slight dabbing of compact powder over it fixes this problem).
- The sunscreen is only available in SPF26 formula.
- Suncros gel doesn’t mention anything about PA+++ and doesn’t even mention anything about protection from UVA or UVB rays.
- The packaging is weird, I have to fold the whole tube into two halves so that I can squeeze out the sunscreen.
