Hello Jassi, how are you??
Good that you are taking the Sunprotek challenge 🙂 good luck
m fine manjeet thax.
is it need to apply powder/compact after application of this sun sceen ? how is the finishing ? i need to change from suncote . which has to set by powder. most of the powders & compact has talc as an ingredient. pls help.
in winter my skin is drying i had oily skin in summer but now it is drying so sunprotek moisturise it well.but if u have oiliness on ur skin in this time then i cant say about matte finish .
I am using sunprotek 30 gel and its price is 388 for 50gm tube. sunprotek lotion is very sticky I would not recommend that.
This is great Jassi, keep us posted. 🙂
@vccsharma1 (Raj) thanks for the heads up on the gel version. Has Sunptrotek Gel caused you any pimples? Did you buy it in the North of India or South or elsewhere?
@sandra-a-s actually you should not need to use a powder because a good sunscreen won’t create a shiny look on the face. Suncote does give that shine and that’s why we’re all trying to find a shine-free alternative that won’t cause pimples. In the meantime, you could try this trick that Suresh and maybe a few others here are using: Dab Markal calamine lotion on top of Suncote. Ask for it at medical stores.
No, gel version has not caused any pimple but lotion did.
I bought sunprotek gel in Delhi
Sonal this time i bought sunprotek 50 @15% instead of 10%discount 🙂 it cost me 415 bucks.it is working for me really well.About markal that u just suggested i think it is out of stock now.As u know i have been using markal for more than five years.Its production has been stopped as per my information.However,i have four bottles of markal with me.Hence,i am seeking a repalcement for the future usage.So have u got an alternative for markal?
@rajeev I’m starting to suspect that you are some kind of pharma tycoon. 😉 Here in Bangalore we are still hunting for Sunprotek, and even willing to pay the full price.
I have a bottle of Calak sitting with me and I did not find it too pink on my wheatish skin. So maybe that can be used. Let me see if there are any less pinkish alternatives to Markal. I had got a local calamine lotion from a shop here. It was quite liquidy but still pink, so asking for any local brands may be the way to go.
@ jassi , @ AM where did you buy sunprotek in bangalore ??
i am from punjab ludhiana.
I cannot find Sunprotek Gel SPF 50 in Pune and not even online @flipkart or purpulle.com …plz help …
@acnemantra, @gswey059, @qt, Hi there! I was so desperate for a good sunscreen that I mailed Sunprotek MD and asked them to make it available online and local medical stores easily since they have got the best one for acne prone skin.
The goodnews is we can now order it on email directly on their website till they take measures to make it available everywhere. Sadly they promote their product only through qualified doctors and don’t promote on OTC. So I guess it would take sometime before it is available easily.
