Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Sheer Zinc Face Dry Touch SPF 50

I've been trying to find a decent mineral sunscreen for some time so I thought I would give this a try. When all is said and done I do like this sunscreen, even more than I like the dry touch helioplex. However, that being said this stuff does have some issues.

It is thick and leaves a considerable white cast on my face. I had developed a way to apply this to minimize the stickiness and white cast. I simply apply a little at a time to one section of my face, ensuring I don't apply too much (but still applying at least 1/4 of a teaspoon on my entire face). It dries after about 5 minutes and does go almost clear. I don't wear liquid foundation, just powder so after it is dry I apply concealer and dust my entire face. I would imagine that applying liquid foundation on top of this would make your face look cakey/greasy. I'm also not a big fan of the smell, which does linger for a ling time after application but I understand why they wouldn't want to add fragrance so I can deal with it.

What I do like about this sunscreen is it keeps my oily skin matte for a considerable amount of time. Not sure why, but I get much less greasy when I wear this compared to chemical sunscreens. For this reason, and the fact that I have been able to figure out a way to compensate for it's faults, I will keep buying this sunscreen.

I have somewhat sensitive, very oily skin and harsh cleaners can leave me with slight dry patches- this monstrosity had my entire face peeling after two uses. Unless you have the world's toughest skin, I wouldn't touch this, and even then there are many better cleansers at the drugstore and even in the Neutrogena range.

I really like this concealer for under eyes. if you like a stick concealer, this one is the best one I have tried. I put it on quite thick and let it set there for a few minutes and then I rub it in with my fingers. I dont find it sets in my creases and really "brightens" up the under eye area....Other stick under eye concealers tend to make me look fifty years older but this one does not....Usually at the end of the day, my concealer may have settled into lines and caked up a bit, but this one does not do that. Coverage could be a little better but I'm pretty darn happy with this. Best concealer I have tried so far!

Got a sample of this in the mail and so far I absolutely love it! It made my skin feel instantly smoother and unlike most moisturizers it didn't leave my skin feeling greasy. I don't get the negative responses about the scent, I think it smells wonderful - fresh and yummy! But to each their own. It's fantastic if you have problems with your skin, like oily and dry at the same time like do. It also made my complexion look better, it smoothed out any rough patches and made my pores look smaller, I would definitely repurchase!

This works extremely well at removing my eye makeup. I just put some on a cotton pad and hold it over my eyes, and it helps the makeup slide right off. It doesn't sting my eyes at all. So far, this is my favorite eye remover that I've tried.

Absolutely terrible. The citrus smell is so irritating, and the wipes sting your eyes like crazy. If you're getting Neutrogena makeup wipes, just get the regular ones in the blue packaging.

This is very harsh on the skin, and leaves my skin quite dry. However, it does a great job of removing all of the makeup on your face, and I like that, because I break out if there is any product I didn't get off my skin. Make sure to moisturize well if you use this or if you are prone to dry skin.

It is a pretty good product. Does not leave my combo skin greasy like most day creams with sunscreens do. It feels a bit fatty on the skin just after application, but it kinda melts into your skin too.

What a terrible product.
It's my second sunscreen from Neutrogena, unfortunately again a miss, way worse that the first one.
I used it only one day and there is no way I will apply it again.

Pros:
- it's not shiny, even when reapplied
- it's invisible
- it's dream to apply, liquidy texture makes it spread very easy

Cons:
- upon application, it stings (I thought of washing it off, but in about 15 minutes my skin calmed down)
- in about one - one and half hours of wear my cheek started to itch and some voluminous rashes appeared (I used it only on one side of my face to compare it with my go-to but very drying sunscreen from Etude House) I took Zirtek and reapplied it after 3 hours of wear
- right after reapplying I went out and spent a couple of hours in the park (sunny late afternoon). When I came home I immediately noticed two dark spots (almost parallel wide lines) on my cheek about an inch from my mouth. I do have freckles, especially in summer, but now I also have two dark lines that made out of combined freckles! It looks like I have a dirty face or a bad scarring.

I've never experienced anything like that on my face, I put sunscreen daily... Terrible product! Stay away!

Most of Neutrogena's face washes are too harsh for my skin, which can be sensitive, but this one was surprisingly gentle (though it was a little drying.) I like the apple-pear scent, and the clean feeling it left behind. Unfortunately I will not repurchase, but if you are looking for a gentle-yet-effective face wash for acne-prone skin, this might be worth checking out.

One use of this cleanser left my sensitive skin red and burning. Ouch! I immediately switched back to my sensitive-skin staple cleansers, Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser and Johnson's Head-to-Toe baby wash

I started using this product over a year ago. And three bottles later, it is safe to say it has cleared up my acne if not completely a little. I had really oily skin now it's a combo of dry to really dry. I still have breakouts but not as much as before. But it definitely has dried out my skin and left me with dry patches around my cheeks and chin. I recommend the website cosDNA before you buy this. It lists all the ingredients, some which can actually cause acne. In conclusion, I am not going for another bottle

This is a product for dry skin. Mine leans towards rosacea sometimes, but that's usually caused by lifestyle factors or by exfoliating too much. I haven't used drugstore skincare in almost 20 years (I use natural stuff from either Whole Foods or high end lines or make my own). But, the teenager in me who grew up using drugstore stuff was always curious about this line, so I decided to try it out. I actually think both of the moisturizers are pretty great! It does have a kind of fruity fragrance, but in my experience it doesn't burn or cause irritation and it's kind of pleasurable (again, it's the kid in me that likes it).

I like layering this over an oil serum for day. I have pretty dry skin and can handle moisture. I find that a moisturizer, on its own, never does the job (regardless of who made it), so I always layer products to begin with. My skin loves oils, so the fact that this product is oil derived is a blessing. Everyone's skin is different. I love that this doesn't have silicones or petrochemicals in it. I wish more drugstore companies would take Neutrogena's lead and then maybe I would start shopping drugstore again!

Very, very affordable, too. Especially if you buy it online. I definitely recommend this. The finish is nice for makeup, too. It's not greasy.

I have used so many cleansers and I really love this one. I use it as a second cleanse in the evening or normal cleanse in the morning. Great and cheap.
