Best Sunscreen on the Market

5

I've been using Neutrogena sunscreen since before puberty, and I don't use any other sunscreen. I love their facial sunscreens (specifically this one - Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch in varying SPFs), but I also love their spray-on sunscreen. This sunscreen is sheer and won't bother people with sensitive skin. It also doesn't make you look paler nor does it leave a greasy residue. It can be more expensive than other drugstore sunscreens, but it's worth it. Despite being very pale, I typically don't burn when I am wearing it. I believe this is the best sunscreen on the market. This sunscreen makes it feel possible to wear sunscreen on a daily basis!

Perfect for everyday

I originally purchased this because of the "dry touch". I really hate the greasy feeling of most sunblocks. This is the opposite. It's lightweight and effective. There is little to no scent and I even use this on my face! As a pale mama, I need to be able to apply quickly and be on the go with my family and this fits the bill without slipping and sliding.

A product I love recommended by my Dermotologist

I see a dermatologist regularly due to rosacea and was given a sample of this product from them. The thought behind it was that certain light as well as the sunlight was one of the factors that was contributing to rosacea showing sometimes more than others. Sunscreens can sometimes be so oily or thick, but not this one. It is no greasy, not too think, moisture and feels so smooth on your face. This product doesn't have much of a smell to it either. Usually with sunscreen you can tell right away when someone is wearing it. I use this product daily under my usual foundation.

This is good for long term exposure.

I sometimes go out in the sun for a long time during the summer when I go to exercise. Some of my intense workouts last for more than two hours in the sun with me sweating a lot. I really like these long term exposures but I also don't want to burn or damage my skin from too much exposure from the sun. I was skeptical about very high SPF sunscreens but I decided to try this for the long term exposures. I thought the sunscreen might be too strong but my skin was fine after using it. Scent The scent can be a bit strong at first but wears off quickly. Absorption You need to scrub it quite a bit to get rid of the white residual but once it is absorbed, you don't see the white on your face anymore. Longevity This is a strong sunscreen that lasts a long time. Effectiveness This is very effective if you want to be out in strong sun for a long period of time. Ease of Application It is easy to apply but you may have to scrub it for a few minutes to completely absorb it.

Best One Out There...

I have been using Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 85 for a few years now and absolutely love it. I usually go through two or three tubes of this each summer. I use the neutrogena sunblock one my two little ones because they are so fair skinned and burn easy. Since starting to use the neutrogena neither have had any sunburn. This sunscreen is easy to apply and has great absorption. It leaves your skin feeling soft and dry compared to most that give your skin a greasy texture. The effectiveness of this sunscreen is great and it lasts for a long time. The neutrogena sunscreen has a very pleasant scent compared to other sunscreens. This sunscreen is paba free. Neutrogena ultra sheer dry touch is also water resistant for up to 80 minutes. I would definately recommend neutrogena ultra sheer sunblock to anyone with light complextion or who may have children.

Scent Has a very pleasant scent and not very strong. It has a nice smooth texture and isn't greasy. Absorption Great skin absorption. Longevity It last's a long time. It last's all day.

Super great sunscreen!

This is a great sunscreen. It has the highest spf I've seen on any sunscreen so it offers great protection. My dad who was diagnosed with skin cancer was instructed by his dermatologist to use this sunscreen, and so I also started using it. A word to the wise though do not get it in your eyes as it burns.

One of the best out there.

I am fair skinned and therefore have tried a large number of sunblock products over the years. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunblock is definitely one of the best, if not THE best, I have ever used.  It goes on without any greasy feel, it does not irritate my skin (I have sensitive skin), and works very well.  I have used it on vacation in the Caribbean, and never got a sunburn.  This product was recommended to me by my sister-in-law, who had two episodes of melanoma.  She has to be diligent with protecting herself from the sun and she uses it exclusively.  I do, too, now that I have tried it.  It is more expensive than some other products, so I usually wait for a sale.  I would describe myself as rather conservative/frugal, and this product, in my opinion, is a good value for the money.  I have been using Neutrogena products since I was a teenager and feel that it is a very good name brand.  You get what you pay for.

Great Sunscreen!  Being a woman with some hormone therapy, I started getting some brown spots right on my face just a few years ago.  I thought maybe being in the sun more would help even them out.. oh was I a fool!  I finally went to a dermotologist to find out what was going on and I was told about malasma, estrogen under skin and how the skin makes it turn more brown.. I've learned that it is crucial that I keep these spots out of the sun or they will get dark just like that.  My dermotologist was giving me some samples of this neutrogena spf 85 for a while there.  I became addicted, now I don't leave the house without my neutrogena sunscreen.. I have to reapply it every so many hours if I'm going to be out at all.. just driving is real bad cause that is the cheek where I have the worst part of it, which I think is because it's been exposed the most.  Well I love neutrogena, it works very well and i can definitely tell a major different when i use it, it really works.

My husband is very fair and has a history of pre-cancerous growths. Our daughter is very fair as well. Our son likes to hike the "fourteeners".  Between living in Colorado and being a home of (mostly) red-heads sunblock is not optional here! Texture and smell are always part of the criteria of our choices and we ended up with a cupboard full of un-used products. On the recommendation of my Dad I have finally found one my whole family will use: Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 85 with Helioplex. This product is not sticky or slimey.  It does not have any unpleasant odor. My teen-agers both use it and do not break out. While I can't say it is entirely sweat-proof, I do know it has held up better than any of the competitors my husband has put to "the test".   We are coming into our third summer with Neutrogena and I can gratefully say we all can pass around one tube of sunblock and be done with it. Honestly, I only wish the tubes were bigger!
