I use this for my body not for my face but it hasn't caused my skin to break out or irritate it since I have sensitive skin. Feels light but moisturizing and not too thick or greasy like cvs's knock off of the mineral SS for neutrogena. The smell isn't strong but it does smell like your typical sunscreen. My skin feels soft after I apply this and I always make sure to carry this around in my purse. Got this at target in a .2 pack and prob will repurchase once I finish
I've used a few sunblocks before, but this is by far the best one I've used. I've tried & experimented with neutrogena sunblocks & I have to say those were a bit cakey for me. However, the aveeno sunblock's texture wasn't as cakey & blended better.
I can't say much about how well it blocks the sun though. continued >>
Great product, it did broke me out a bit ,but It was for my five years old boy, it does not sting his eyes or irritate his sensitive skin. he never got sun burn.
I keep this in my bag to use on DD. It seems to work well & its very thick so you end up using a lot (like you're suppose to). I occassionally use this on my face & haven't had any problems.
Only downside is that it has a yucky smell to it that lasts until you shower it off. continued >>
I think I'm in love. This has quickly become my HG. The bottle I have has a purple cap though, not yellow. IDK if they re-formulated or just changed the packaging. I've been using this for close to 3 weeks and haven't had a reaction or break out as a result yet. Usually it takes about a week for my skin to reject something and I'm fairly sensitive. I was using Neutrogena Dry Touch before this, and after re-applying throughout the day, that would feel like a thick layer of gunk. This Aveeno seems to melt into my skin and disappear. Feels a little greasy at first, but after it's mostly rubbed in, I pat it in with my fingertips and it feels great. I'll update if I get a reaction, but so far, so great!
I had purchased this product due to the good reviews it had received. After the first couple of days all was well until a mild redness appeared on my cheeks and neck. By the end of the third day I had a terrible rash and the burning sensation was painful! I had to pop a couple of Aspirin and coat a thick layer of Nivea creme to calm down my face but even then the damage was evident. Will absolutely not purchase again.
It's true that this tends to be a bit streaky and crumbly. But it is just a bit and it's nothing that can't be wiped away or blended in once it's absorbed. I always wait 30 minutes to apply my makeup anyway, and I wipe my hairline and any streaks then.
Otherwise, I love this sunscreen for the simple fact that it didn't clog me or break me out. So many sunscreens clog me but I stayed clear with this, so it's my HG for now. I also like the light smell and how it leaves a very slight whitish film that diffuses the redness in my skin in a really subtle way (I'm pale ppd). I'm not sure of the ppd, but I do know my hyperpigmentation doesn't get worse and seems to fade with this.
At first, I really liked this sunblock - even though it was hard to blend. The scent was tolerable (in fact, I really liked how it smelled!), it made my skin feel silky, and it wasn't greasy at all. But after using it for about a week, I started getting bumps all over my upper arms and chest. How do I know it's from this sunblock? Because I only got the bumps on the areas I applied the sunblock. I really wanted this sunblock to work! I thought since it was sunblock for babies it would be really gentle on my skin...guess I was wrong. Oh and it's been about a month since I stopped using it and the bumps on my chest went away, but the bumps on my arms won't go away... =(
This is a great sunblock. I went snorkeling under the merciless Florida sun with this stuff on, and it worked beautifully (up until I started running out and had to apply it pretty thin). I got a wicked burn on my back where I didn't think to apply the block (I didn't consider that the top of my suit would come up), so I have a very good idea of how protective this stuff is.
I do wish, though, that they would include more UVA block in this product.
I won't wear this product on my face, as it leaves an obvious white residue, but since it works so well everywhere else, that isn't enough to dock it any points.
Highly recommend, will buy again!
