During winter, with the scorching blaze of the Sun muted, and the chill in the air setting in, we tend to soak up the warmth whenever we go outside. We neglect the umbrella, avoid staying under shades and the types of protection and naturally bask in the rays of the Sun. Moreover, the sharp, cold, dry air makes our skin even more vulnerable to the harmful source of warmth. This necessitates application of proper sunscreens to protect our skin. Thankfully, Suncote Sunscreen Gel comes to the rescue.
Suncote Gel by Curatio is a dermatological sunscreen designed especially for hyper oily, acne prone skin to prevent these problems. Suncote Sunscreen Gel was prescribed to me by my dermatologist and thankfully, it is working.
Suncote Sunscreen Gel is available in pharmaceutical stores and has to be applied 15 – 20 minutes before sun exposure. It is not water resistant. The outer cover is shiny silver while the tube itself is baby pink. The Suncote Sunscreen is gel based, non sticky, non creamy, non oily and pleasantly fragranced.

Unfortunately, though, we cannot ignore a few points –
:cloudy: The gel does not provide moisturizing to dry skin. It is not meant to too. It is for oily skin afterall.
:cloudy: Washes away in water
:cloudy: Has to be bought from a pharmaceutical shop, not a cosmetic one.
Final verdict – having acne prone oily skin, Suncote sunscreen gel is THE product for me. For now, I will stick to this one loyally.
