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.
I've been using this on my face for a while, and it's pretty good at first but I think it makes me oily after a few hours. I really like the fact that it's matte and fast-absorbing though. The price is a bit on the expensive side, but I will purchase this again for my face.
I have this in SPF 55, and I'm a fan of it. I like this sunscreen, it's smooth and blends easily in my skin so I don't get an incredibly noticable white cast. It dries smooth and matte. I don't get any negative skin reactions from it and it protects my face very well. And I HAVE to wear sunscreen, I'm currently on Retin-A-Mirco. Would repurchase.
Love this sunscreen! I have very fair skin, that burns very easily! I bought this with spf 55 and loved it the first time i used it! Its doesnt leave your skin greasy, has a light smell, and best of all it protects ur skin from sun damage and wrinkles!! LOVE IT!
Good priced sunscreen. Protection is moderate.
- Absorbs quickly
- Fair price
- Doesn't feel greasy
- Makes me shiny
I have not found one sunscreen that doesn't make me shiny. I was really hoping that because it was dry-touch it would have a more matte finish. I guess I will just have to powder my face after the application until a non-shiny suncreen is invented.
I love Neutrogena's sun blocks. This one is lightly scented and doesn't leave you shiny. It also doesn't make you feel gross and sticky like most cheap sun blocks. It is a little expensive compared with other drug store brands (especially if you go through a lot of sun block like I do!). I love that you can also get it in SPF 70-when you look at those charts that tell you who's at risk for skin cancer I'm right at the top! (Fair skinned, fair haired, lots of moles, burns easily). I don't normally use it on my face, because Shiseido's ultra smooth sun block is my HG of moisturizers, but when I have used Neutrogena sunblock on my face I don't break out.
