This doesn't make me all shiny like other sunscreens and it feel great. It doesnt feel greasy and it doesn't smell bad, which is a bonus. I will definatly repurchase to use all summer!
I have used both the SPF45 and 35 in this product and I really like it. I have sensitive, combination skin and it does not irritate my skin at all. I wear it either on its own (on really hot days) or under make-up on days that are average in temperature. Make-up goes on fine over it and it's very lightweight - skin feels soft and smooth upon application. It is also reasonably priced. Overall, I am very satisfied with this product.
Ok wow- I thought this would be great especially since it cost me a small fortune. Well I was wrong. I went canoeing with my bf in the hot florida sun- when I sweat, this sunscreen turned white even though I had rubbed it in approx 30-45 min earlier. It then proceeded to drip down my body and converge in any crease I had in my skin (i.e. inside of elbows, behind knees, stomach including belly button etc.) NOT CUTE. Will not be re-purchasing.
This is actually a review for the Neutrogena Ultimate Sport Sunscreen with Spf 45 and helioplex. I couldn't find this one on MUA so I guess I"ll write my review here. I've had tons of sunscreens for the past several years and hated all of them. I've tried Hawaiian tropic, banana boat, coppertone, l'oreal, biotherm, umbrella (i think it's called?) and I recently tried the Clinique and Shisedo one. I hated them all! They all were a thick, white paste that was beyond oily! I have oily skin but dry legs so all of those would make me break out and make my legs super greasy sticky and shiny. This one however, was recommended to me by a friend. I was skeptic because I personally don't believe in drug store beauty products at all. They seem to only be minimally acceptable if you're lucky and picked a good one. This sunscreen is incredible!! It's NEVER greasy. EVER. It makes your legs have the feeling that you've just shaved and it's super smooth and it's waterproof and SPF 45 so I know it's protecting me. Seriously, I use this as my body lotion in the winter sometimes! It feels like you put silk on your body and it doesn't feel like you have sunscreen on. The smell is tolerable. It does smell like sunscreen which I don't like, but it's very subtle and I think they masked it a little with something that smells like herbs or cucumbers...it smells fresh.Best of all, it's cheap! I paid $35 for the high end sunscreens and this one is way better! Will always buy unless it's discontinued!
i really wanted this product to work for me...but..nope it didn't...my skin had some irritation within the first week and i didn't know why...then i remember i started using this....and i stop using it...now my skin fine....
Neutrogena is a chemical sunblock. I use it on my legs and the rest of my body but not my face. It feels dry and greasy at the same time, how does that happen? I have that chemical gloss on my skin when I put it on.
I found this create a white cast on my face, makes me look ghostly white even with foundation on top. It doesn't have a significant sun screen smell, but not a pleasant smell in my opinion. It does dry matte, not sticky. Prefer Kiehls water based sun screen for my combo/slightly oily skin as a base for my foundation.
I don't want to waste my time and your time talking about the importance of using sun block,,everybody talks about it,,you've heard it all,,JUST USE ONE!! now,,i like this sunscreen because it's not oily at all,,i have combination/oily/super acne pron skin,,so this factor is very important for me,,i can use mineral foundation on top of this and it makes a fabulous combo ,,,"dry-touch" isn't just a smart name! it applies with ease and doesn't leave any white or other colored residue,,this line also has many different levels of SPFs,,i would recommend at least SPF 30 for face on a regular day,,and of course you will need higher if you are going to the beach
I switched to this product after using their moisturizer with 45 SPF which left my skin far too greasy.
I was using this from about March to late April, but I have quickly realized that it is ust too greasy for the summer.
I think I might go back to this next winter, but for now I'll stick with my new Coppertone face sunscreen!
Pro: Good sunscreen, didn't feel greasy at all.
Con: 3 oz. doesn't last long when liberally applying to body, left a white cast that went away after I rubbed it in better.
I liked this sunscreen but prefer the Ultra Sheer Body Mist because it's easier to apply and doesn't leave any white cast.
