I have sensitive skin which dries, burns and tans easily so I am always on the lookout for some affordable sunscreens that also work well .Today I shall share my experience about the Sunprotek Gel.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT
Allantoin : keeps the skin soft, smooth, and healthy. Allantoin also helps protect the skin against various irritants
Vitamin E : has positive effects against skin ageing due to ultraviolet light, and protects cells by reducing itchiness and free-radical damage.
Chamomile Extract : Chamomile has antioxidant, antimicrobial activities, and a potent anti-inflammatory action
Aloe Vera Extract : Humidifies, smooths and reaffirms the skin, eliminates the ageing spots, and also acts as astringent, solar filter.
DIRECTION FOR USE FOR SUNPROTEK 50+ GEL:
Take a liberal amount of the gel on your palm and apply on the exposed part of the skin
at least 20 minutes before getting under direct sunlight. Clean the skin before applying. Reapply after 3 hours if still in the sun.
PRICE – Rs 877/- for 100 gms , but as usual I got it much cheaper online !
PROS OF SUNPROTEK 50+ GEL
1. It is the number one selling US-FDA compliant sunscreen in India
2. World class formulation, at an affordable price
3. It contains Aloe Vera extract which keeps the skin moist and healthy too .Many physical sunscreens can end up making the skin feel dry and coated; this one does not make you feel so.
4. It is a non PABA (para -aminobenzoic acid – which can occasionally cause skin irritation)
5. No white cast
6. Matte finish but not drying
7. The Chamomile, Aloe vera and Allantoin make it very suitable for my acne prone , oily skin ,it actually had a soothing effect.
8. Effective Sun protection for up to 3 hours, after that you should reapply for better protection
9. Unlike some other sunscreens with SPF 50, I found this saved my skin from tanning more effectively.
1. Expensive – At 536 bucks for 50 gm , it lasts about 15 days , if I use it liberally over my face and arms .
2. Stickiness – Slightly sticky feel, immediately on application lasting for 5 mins.
FINAL VERDICT – I rate it a 5/5 .I think it is a star performer at this price.I am re buying it definitely.

I haven’t heard of this brand but since this is a gel based peoduct and looking at your review I am surely trying it 🙂
This sunscreen I have heard about a lot thanks for sharing the review this is the best sunscreen for me
This sounds a star performer wrt UV B and A protection. Good to know that it is really effective for 3 straight hours.
Sunscreen is the most important skincare step of all. Will definitely check this out on your recommendation
I used it as claim its not sticky like sun cote and it moisturize my skin very well no stretchy feeling no dryness.i am very happy with it
Thanks for an honest feedback. The price point is a bit high and the fact that it is sticky is a turn off for me.
I generally prefer gel based cream. Will give it a try. Thanks for the detailed review.
It’s good to have a good sunscreen in this heat else tanning is a huge issue. Thanks for sharing this product i’ll try and c how it is
This sunscreen looks like it's for me. I have an oily skin and as you told it is matt texture but not dry. Just perfect for me
sunscreen is a must if one will be outside. I love seeing that it has been dermatologist recommended
thanks for sharing this product. everyone needs sunshield and since it's recommended by dermatologist we have the assurance that this product is safe.
A must have and a must try. Since it has aloe vera in it, and I usually put aloe vera in my face, haha. And I like that it has a Matte finish 🙂
It all looked great until I saw the price. That's some expensive sun block. But you have to consider your long term health, so it may be worth it to splurge.
Yes, the biggest selling point is that it is dermatologist recommended.
That's the biggest selling point that it is dermatologist recommended.Thanks!
I too use Aloe Vera on my face and skin and I find it works well for me.
This cream has all the properties that I am looking for and it is SPF 50, which is perfect for the weather in California, where I live.
It's so important to protect your skin- sun exposure can be so damaging. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about this product.
There is nothing more important than a good sun screen. This one looks like a great one.
I am actually searching for a healthier and effective sunscreen so this may be it. I am definitely going to try it. Thank You
I am looking forward to how other's skin reacts to this, my super oily skin gets oily despite using the bets products after 3 hours.
Tanning is a huge issue with me and I really found this was effective in preventing that.
Thank you for your kind words Sayeri!
The same are sore points for me too .
I am happy that you found it good for your skin.
Be sure to let me know the results!
Yes ,most things are great since I have tried a few more expensive ones but they did not work so well.
Actually I find most sunblocks come with high price tags.
Yes at this quality it is a good buy.
Yes indeed quite a good one compared to what popular brands offer.
Sun protection is definitely one of the first step to beautiful even skin.
Thank you for the kind words Athena!
Yes in India , Sun protection is often overlooked.Thank you for going through my post.
Yes this would be quite suitable for the warm California weather.
Sunscreen lotion is a must! I religiously apply it from face to all my body, especially when am going out. Even when am inside the office, I still wear sunscreen lotion onto my face because of strong blue lights from my screens.
This looks great. It's a gel? It looks like the formula is nice and thick and works great. I'll have to give them a try. Thanks for the recco!
Protecting your skin in the sun is SO important and I am always on the search for suitable products for me and my family. This sounds like a fantastic sunscreen
I am always out in the sun and so making sure that my skin is protected is so important. I have not ever heard of these products before but they look worth a shot.
Your skin is so very important to take care of. Mine is also very sensitive, so I have to look into this!
I am not sure if these products are available in your country but they were super effective.
Thank you very much!
You are a very informed person when it comes to suncreen.That's great!
Hey,let me know how it works for you then.
It is a gel based formula ,non creamy and gives a soft finish , i will not say dry.It is like applying aloe vera.
Yes Tonya, people like us have to be extra careful about sun protection.
Even my dermatologist recommend this . But What kind of face cream I should apply before this sunscreen?
