How are Banana Sport and Sunban Forte sunscreens?


Hi AM, Teju and Friends,

I have a question about sunscreen.

I am having two suncreens right now.

1) Banana Sport –

2) Sunban Forte cream (recommended to me by my dermatologist) –

When i am using sunban forte cream then the white cast and sticky ness remains on my face.   Regarding banana sport suncreen, when i use it then my skin looks oily. So i stop using these two sunscreens and right now i am not using any sunscreens.

Any idea or experience about the above two sunscreens. Do i need to try some other sunscreen. Please suggest/advise.

Thanks for your time and help.

Hi Ashu..
I have this sunscreen,it broke me out actually..
It claims everything..
It is actually for water proof,sweat proof meant for swimming etc..
I would’t recommend this for daily usage..
Clear face sounds a better option..


Hi Teju,

Thanks for letting me know that.

Actually i bought this one today –

Please let me know your thoughts on this. If it is not good then i will go and return it tomorrow.

Hi Acnemantra,

I remember you commented on this post as below

“In the U.S. you have quite a few options for a non-comedogenic sunscreen. Give me some time, I’ll get back to you on this.”

I just wanted to check that did you get a chance to gather any information about it.

Thanks for your help.

Hi  AM,


Thanks for your reply. Actually Teju recommended me the same option couple of days back.


I wanted to see that do you know any other options that’s why thought to check with you 🙂 Looks like Teju, you and me are on the same page for this sunscreen question.





I am coming to India in november for 2 weeks.  Will buy 2 suncote and 2 lotus 3 in 1 at that time 🙂

Till that time will go with this neutrogena option given by Teju and AM.
