I wanted so much to like this, but it broke me out. Neutrogena sunscreens just do not work for me.
Horrible product for me. Caused pimples and irritation, and did not protect my face from a sunburn. It also dried out my face. The only positive point is that it's not an oily sunscreen, but I've worn much heavier sunscreens with no breakouts.
LOVE this! I have always been hesitant about liquid sunscreen.. worried i would be streaky or not absorb quickly enough, not this! The texture is great; lightweight,silky and it absorbs quickly! Leaves my skin matte and doesn't make my make-up greasy 3 hours later. I love the eye-dropper like packaging too.
There is a $2.00 off coupon on the Neurogena website for this..try it out!
I have very oily skin and have never in my life found a sunscreen I could use -- until now. True, I tried using powder sunscreens when they became available, but they didn't stay put and made me look like casper. Out of desperation recently (I'm getting brown spots around my eyes) I tried this product. Wow. Fabuous. Not only is this an effective suncreen, my skin looks so good I've been going without face powder. Also, there is zero oil to blot up until well into my day; the product seems to have mattifying properties. I had a facial today and didn't need any extractions, so the product is not causing my usually problem-plagued skin any issues. If only this sunscreen had been available 30 years ago! PS: If you do not have oily skin, you will need moisturizer with this product.
I love this sunscreen!!! It goes on under moisturizer and completely sinks into skin and makes it more even. Also, the tiny packaging makes it easy to toss in my bag so I can always have it with me - yay!
I have used this everyday for the last month. My Dermatologist recommended it after my last visit. :( Its nice and sheer and dries smooth to the touch. I put my make up over it and my make up doesn't run. Seems to make my skin look nicer and my pores a bit smaller (but that could be a side effect of the Renova.) I love it and will be using it every morning. There is a bit of a tingle/burn...but my skin is being thinned out by the Renova, so that is not unexpected. Must be working, my freckles are fading...I am in the sun on the weekends, but I have been wearing a Large brimmed hat, sunglasses and this sunscreen and so far I am staying fair. Will buy forever.
FINALLY found my daily HG sunscreen! It is so light and spreads easily which I love. It leaves my face feeling soft and fresh not sticky and white like most sunscreens. The faint sunscreen scent fades quickly and this sinks right into my skin. I found this for $8.99 on sale at Rite Aid and is better than some $40 sunscreens I have tried. PLEASE KEEP THIS PRODUCT NEUTROGENA.
I am really happy with this product.
1) Light. Disappears right into my skin yet leaves a smooth surface making my pores look smaller.
2) Not greasy yet not drying like Shiseido.
3) Price. Very reasonable.
4) SPF 70 with a high PPD.
5) Did not burn or irritate my skin. No breakouts.
6) Easy to obtain.
2) Not cruelty free.
I have the SPF 55 version of this (I don't know what 70 means...I don't live in Africa!) I love the texture. It's nearly water-thin, leaves no white cast on my skin and absorbs very quickly and is so softening on the skin! When I touch my face even an hour later, it's like satin. Lovely. It makes a great base for makeup, any kind of powder or foundation would glide on really well on top of this. I will keep wearing it for awhile and see how my skin continues to react to it, but I have to say that thus far, I am very impressed and hope that this will be the future of Neutrogena's sunscreens.
UPDATE: I have been using this on my face everyday since I first discovered it a year ago and absolutely cannot life without it. I am extremely acne prone. My acne is kept under control with BP and AHA. This sunscreen has not broken me out at all. It is light, thin and watery but it is very easy to apply and rub into the skin. You do have to shake up the bottle like a white out pen each and every time. I now use a very liberal amount just to be safe and it does make me just a tad greasy initially but that can be fixed with a good blotting and then its not an issue for the rest of the day. It no longer has the slight matte effect on my skin like it used to when I first tried it. It is a fabulous, affordable and widely available sunscreen. Since using this, I haven't gotten any new sunspots or discolorations from the sun which show that the sun protection is good.
I found this at target and was so excited that there is finally a drugstore brand product that seems to be similar to japanese brand sunscreens. I've been wanting to order some like that from sasa.com but have never gotten around to it and hate that I have to order my sunscreen from online but this is great that neutrogena is making one. This stuff is amazing, it is really liquid like so it spreads amazingly and it does not feel like sunscreen at all. also, this makes a great base for my mineral make up which looks better over this than just my regular moisturizer. I think it is because this mattifies my oily skin so the minerals adhere better and doesn't separate b/c my skin doesn't get so oily. All around great deal and I have been using it everyday and not dreading it at all like i used to with other sunscreens.
