Suncros Matte Finish Soft SPF 50+ PA+++ Sunscreen Review-
Sunscreens are an essential part of our skincare routine and I can’t stress enough the importance of protecting our skin from harmful sun radiation . Apart from using a sunscreen when outdoors , I also use (and recommend using) a sunscreen indoors /inside the house on daily basis . But since my skin is really sensitive and acne prone , not all sunscreens formulas work for me . Thankfully I have found a few which do not aggravate my acne or clog pores . I am going to talk about one such sunscreen in my review today .. Keep Reading 😃😃

My take on the Suncros Matte Finish Soft SPF 50+ PA+++ Sunscreen-
Suncros sunscreen gel comes in a simple and convenient to use white colored tube packaging . Also , it is available in a smaller (20Gms) packaging and I had first tried that before purchasing this bigger (50gms) tube .
It has a medicinal fragrance which I am not very fond of but it fades away in a minute or so of application .
The formula is a cream coloured , light weight , airy mousse kinds and not like a clear gel . It has soft and slippery feel to it because of the presence of silicones in it. If you check the Ingredients List of this sunscreen , the first ingredient is Cyclopentasiloxane which is a Lightweight silicone with a silky, slippery feel that functions as a skin/hair conditioning agent . The silicony texture gives a nice smoothness and slip to the skin , so doubles up as a primer too . The sunscreen spreads easily and does not leave behind a white cast .
I bought this Suncros Sunscreen on a friend’s recommendation last year but couldn’t use it much as I found it not so hydrating for winter months when my skin is drier . But for summers I find it perfect for my Oily Combination skin . I don’t need a moisturizer underneath this nor it is very greasy , apt for my skin type . The finish is not a complete matte but a soft , comfortable matte .
I’ve been using this sunscreen for a while and thankfully it does not cause any skin irritation or breakouts on my sensitive acne prone skin. As per the Claims , the sunscreen is free from Chemical agents and by this , the brand means it’s a “Physical Sunscreen” , which creates a physical barrier between your skin and the sun. Such sunscreens don’t absorb into the skin but remain on the surface to protect it from harmful sun radiation . Also , since it has SPF 50 it will provide sun protection for good 8 hrs and PA+++ protects the skin from UVA/UVB rays.
Overall , I really like this sunscreen for my skin and I will definitely repurchase another tube of this specially for summers . I would also recommend this to anyone with sensitive , acne prone , Oily Combination skin .
Pros of the Suncros Matte Finish Soft SPF 50+ PA+++ Sunscreen:
- Light Weight , airy / mousse kind formula which spreads easily.
- Not too greasy , great for oily combination skin .
- Lightly Hydrating without any stickiness
- Smoothes out skin , so doubles up as a primer
- Does not leave behind a white cast
- Safe for Acne prone and Sensitive skin
- Contains SPF 50 and PA+++ , so protects the skin very well from sun damage.
Cons of the Suncros Matte Finish Soft SPF 50+ PA+++ Sunscreen:
- None for me , but dry skin would need some layer of hydration under this .
Swatch of the Suncros Matte Finish Soft SPF 50+ PA+++ Sunscreen-
My Rating: 4.75/5!
Do I recommend the Suncros Matte Finish Soft SPF 50+ PA+++ Sunscreen?
Suncros Matte Finish Soft Sunscreen is a very good sunscreen option for Oily Acne prone skin . It leaves skin soft , smoothed out without any white caste . There are very few brands available in India which make Good Physical Sunscreens , but I am glad I found this one . I would certainly re-purchase this and recommend it to anyone with sensitive , acne prone skin .
