Suncote Sunscreen Gel Review

by jomol on December 24, 2010 · 20 comments

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

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.

Suncote Sunscreen Gel Profile–

:umbrella: Manufactured by – Wonder Products
:umbrella: Marketed by – Curatio
:umbrella: Key ingredients – Octylmethoxycinnamate (I copied the spelling alphabet by alphabet, yet MS-Word is marking it as a spelling mistake ), Triethanolamine (again!), Avobenzone (grr!) etc.
:umbrella: Net Quantity – 100 gm
:umbrella: Maximum retail price – 199 INR.

SUncote Sunscreen

The points that make Suncote sunscreen gel desirable are –

:rainbow: Works well with oily, sensitive skin
:rainbow: Does not aggravate the acne situation
:rainbow: A small quantity covers a large area
:rainbow: The gel spreads on the skin smoothly and evenly
:rainbow: The product is reasonably priced
:rainbow: The mild floral scent lasts for a few hours and does not aggravate sensitive noses
:rainbow: Being gel based, it is non oily, non creamy and non sticky

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.

SUncote Sunscreen

Final verdict – having acne prone oily skin, Suncote sunscreen gel is THE product for me. For now, I will stick to this one loyally.
