I bought the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunblock, SPF 70. It comes in a spray can so I just spray it on when i go to the pool. It's an okay product. Using the misting spray is difficult because it's hard estimate if covered your entire body with the sunscreen since you just spray it on. It's easy to miss some spots. It's okay the spray has very subtle glitters in it so when you spray it on you get a bronze look. The spray gives me a headache though. I just purchased it a couple of weeks ago and it's already half empty. Maybe I'll just buy the cream sunblock next time since it'll probably last me longer.
Pros: High SPF, stable under mineral makeup, noncomedogenic (won't clog pores), great price
Cons: I found this to be very thick and greasy, and was a horrible texture for my very oily skin! It took FOREVER to dry, so it's impractical to wear under mineral makeup since it's pretty hard to apply dry powder on top of greasy, wet sunscreen! It also left white streaks very easily, and even tended to "pill up" into white balls when I tried to apply my makeup. Gross!
I do use this sunscreen if I'm going to be outside all day without makeup (say, at the pool). But this is definitely not good for an everyday sunscreen!
Well. The words on the package say that this product has a "lightweight clean feel." It's just as heavy as any sunscreen. It says it's "fast absorbing", yet my pores looked even bigger with it on. I couldn't get over the heaviness of this sunscreen. I am definitely not using it again on my face, but I will use up the rest of the tube on my shoulders and the like. But a little expensive for 3 oz of stuff you can only put on your body!!!! Don't waste your money!
Feels great for 3 minutes but then it flakes off in little rolls ? I hated these little dry bits on my cheeks ! All the ultra sheer dry touch sunscreens from neutrogena does this to my face. Not sure why this happens and even if i use just a little bit this still happens. It also happens if i mix it with foundation or moisturizer. But doesn't happen when I don't use it. Garbage oh well...
I love that this is spf 70, however on my c40 skin it leaves a white film behind no matter how hard I rub it in, and on darker skin a white film leaves skin looking grey. I could see this working on lighter skinned girls, but not dark ones. It doesn't make my skin oily or sting, and if not for the white film I would repurchase.
I love this stuff. I just bought it about three weeks ago and I absolutely love it. I didn't want to have another year go by where I get intense burns after being in the sun less than 30 minutes, even with SPF of 50. Once it soaks in, it leaves you with an almost powdery feeling. I let it soak in and then I apply my foundation above it. They look great together.
i love this as a sunscreeen, it feels heavy a first but after it dries, you dont notice it....although it can leave white marks on your face....i guess you have to rub it in carefully. TIP: dont apply near your eyes....not even your eyelids.... because that area the skin is delicate so you want to steer clear of doin that...might make you get wrinkles etc.....i use lip balm with a highspf ...this way it doesnt burn my eyes and i know im still gettin protection!
I swear by this sunscreen and I wear it everyday under my makeup. I am suprised that it has not gotten rave reviews by everyone who tries it. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and never oily. I put about a dime sized amount on my face on top of my moisturizer and under my makeup primer. It is, without a doubt, the best sunscreen I have ever tried for body and face. I will never buy any other kind. My stepmom told me that she had found the best sunscreen and I told her I had found the best suncreen and we were both talking about Neutrogena Ultra Sheer! Like I said, I am very suprised that others didn't fall in love with it like I did. Perhaps they applied too much if they found it to be oily and I am pretty sure all sunscreen burns a little if you get it in your eyes. I definitely, definitely recommend this and all of the other SPFs to anyone! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!
Maybe it's just me but this stuff just peeled and flakes off of me. It's a great concept however and I would love to find a product similar to this that works!
I initally purchased this sunscreen with the intention of using it on my face,I hoped I would like it as much I like neutrogenas other products,alas this was not the case!(sigh!) The texture of this sunscreen is way to glopey for the face and it stung my eyes really badly too! The reason I am giving this sunscreen 5 lippies is because, where it failed to impress as a facial sunscreen,I love love it as a body sunscreen!Also I love the fact that there is such a high SPF I will definately purchase again,as a body sunscreen only! For my face I will continue to use sofina UV milk,It is my HG sunscreen. c",)**
