It took a couple of years to find the right sunscreen for my skin! I have tried dozens of them and finally, I got a chance to try Suncros Aquagel SPF26 Sunscreen. Why so many years? Well, the reason is for all past years I have experienced my skin type changing, earlier it was dry and sunscreen was not a problem but then lately now my skin is becoming Oily & Sensitive too. And many sunscreens I tried, gave me breakouts! Do you have sensitive skin & sunscreens that usually give you a breakout, this post is for you.
So finally, I decided to take suggestions from my dermatologist and she suggested Suncros Aquagel SPF26. It’s been 15-20 days now I am using it daily as part of my skincare routine. And now is the time to share a review of this sunblock. So if you are someone with sensitive skin & looking for a medicated sunblock, read the post till the end.
What is medicated sunscreen?
Medicated sunscreens are approved and suggested by Dermatologists. Thus they are safer than the other sunscreens available in the market. Also if you see the formula of medicated sunscreen, you will notice a highly concentrated formula. Mostly they are Colour Fragrance less which is why they are more suitable for sensitive skin. And the most important benefit of medicated sunscreens is, they give you protection against both UVA & UVB Rays.
So now you know, if you have sensitive skin or acne-prone skin, always go for a medicated sunscreen for sensitive skin!

The product is placed in a Plastic Tub Container with an additional white insert lid apart from the top yellow-colored lid to keep it safe from the outer environment.
The texture of Suncros Aquagel is Light. Though you read ‘gel’ in the name. However, it is not a gel-like texture but more of a creamy texture but in runny consistency.
Review of Suncros Aquagel SPF26 Medicated Sunscreen:
Ok, so now you know ingredients, quality, price, packaging, etc. Now comes the main part that is the experience part. It’s been 20 days of using Suncros Aquagel Sunblock. When I opened the tub, to be honest, I was disappointed because I thought it would be a gel-like formula as it says “aquagel” in the name itself and creams these days scares me because of their creamy texture.
But then I decided to trust my dermatologist and start using it. What I noticed is, when I applied, it felt creamy for a minute or so, but voila! After a minute my skin just absorbed it. After a minute of application, it does not feel creamy, greasy, or oily.
Also, there are no breakouts in the last 20 Days!
Final Words: Go for it!
