Suncote gel SPF 30 by Curatio pharma

Hi everyone! Hope your doing well. Even though i love summer, it is officially over and so is the heat and sweat! I am enjoying the pleasant climate here in Chennai. But nevertheless, i really enjoyed a tan free summer this year, thanks to Suncote gel SPF 30 by Curatio pharma. I actually read about this sunscreen on Sukanya's blog . Since her skin is very similar to mine, i got this one. Read on to find out more about this product! By the way, this review is for you Kimi :)

What suncote claims? Well there are no claims! I think that is because it is not a beauty product, but a pharmaceutical one with chemicals.


Directions to use: 

My experience with it: Firstly i love the cute and simple pink tube. It is so girly! It has a flip open type cap and it shuts tight. Very convenient to toss it into my handbag.

The gel is a light pink colored one and is a little on the thicker side. It gives a cooling sensation on application and i love this product for that! It spreads quite easily on my skin. On massaging this gel into skin, the pink color gel turns into a milky white lotion like consistency and then it gets absorbed into the skin.

 It gives a dewy finish, which i consider as a slight con for my oily combination skin (which turns oily by itself after a while no matter what cream or gel i apply). But since i love this gel so much, i dust some Kryolan loose powder and i love the finish even more. My skin kinda glows. When it comes to the degree of protection that this gel offers, i would rate it 5/5. I started taking care of my skin this summer and tried reducing the tan on my face (with great success of course!) and this gel has helped in maintaining my skin tan free. Another thing that i love about this is the smell. It is a very mild and pleasant smell, that even the most sensitive nose will love! It also doesn't make me sweat unlike most sunscreens and moisturizers, which makes my T-zone sweat after application. So overall i love this sunscreen gel!

Price : Rs.249 for 100 ml ( I ve been using it for about 3 months and i still have more than half of the tube )

Now the plus and minus.

The good:
1.  Gives a cooling sensation on application.
2. Spreads easily, despite the gel consistency.
3. Gives a dewy finish and a glow (especially for the dry skinned beauties).
4. Gives a good protection to the skin.
5. Prevents sun tan.
6. Good smell.
7. Doesnt make my face sweat on application.
8. Quite a reasonable price.

The not so good:
Absolutely nothing!!!

 Final word: I rate this gel 5/5 and i love it so much that it is going to become a staple product in my skin care regime.


  1. hi nice review.............?I would skip this actually. I want sunscreens with zinc oxide in them

    1. Thanks ray! Can you name afew sunscreens which have zinc oxide in it?

  2. From where did you get this ?

    1. I got it from a medical shop near my place :)

  3. some times it make be dark face? any comments on this

    1. I had not experienced any such problems with this one praveen. But i had once heard one of the SA telling me that the SPF that you choose should be according to the sun exposure. If u choose a high SPF sunscreen for about half an hour sun exposure, then it will darken your skin.

  4. can we use this sunscreen lotion to children?
