Final Verdict:

Sunprotect Sunscreen is a very good sunscreen specially for oily and acne prone skin.One tube will last 30-45 days.I love AHA Glow,I bought Sunprotect Sunscreen hoping it wouldn't disappoint me,I am glad it is working out well:).I am so loving this sunscreen plus it is sweat proof which we can all use for upcoming summer season#:-S.Since it was cream base,I thought it would leave white cast on the face,fortunately it did not.If you guys looking for alternative to Suncote SPF 30 Gel Sunscreen(Curatio Pharma) then this would be a  good option.And yes do not forget to re-apply the sunscreen after heavy perspiration/swimming etc despite it being water proof.Full marks from me:)!
