I am very adamant about protecting my skin from the sun, so I always wear a sunscreen. I like to buy this from Costco because they always sell this for a good deal, especially when you use a coupon.
This sunblock does the job of a sunblock, I don't burn nor do I get darker. I find that I don't need to reapply this to keep the skin protection up (generally speaking, this isn't really an issue for me with other sunblocks.
This sunblock does feel a bit greasy, but it kind of fades away after a few minutes.
I find that I do get an issue with white streaks with application. To avoid this, make sure to not apply to much and to blend it into your skin. What I do is rub the sunscreen between my fingers to warm it up. Then when I apply it on I rub it into my face (not too harshly) Then I let it set into my skin for a minute or so. After it sets I check up on my skin, and if there are white streaks I just blend those out.
This sunblock does get oily in maybe 3 hours more or less, but I always get oily anyway so its not surprising. It does smell like sunblock, but the scent is not very strong compared to sport sunscreens like coppertone or banana boat.
Overall, this sunscreen does the job of a sunscreen. I would repurchase (and I have before) because it works and its affordable.
I would recommend if you're looking for a sunscreen that doesn't irritate or break the skin out, doesn't get too greasy compared to sport sunscreens and has a higher spf.

While this sunscreen is very matte, it is also pretty thick and leaves a white cast on my face. It doesn't combine well with Revlon CS foundation either so the foundation ends up looking spider-web-y on my skin. I did not get freckles this summer so it is effective.
I just bought the SPF55 version to see if it is better with the foundation.

I like the feel of it and it is not too thick. I am able to use this on my face without it feeling too greasy.

I use this as a face primer because I'm not happy about the level of SPF in my foundation and I'm paranoid about tanning and skin damage.
I absolutely adore it as a primer. I notice a serious difference in makeup wear and shininess when I don't have it on under my foundation.
I don't notice any scent and while it makes my cranky skin a little red when I first apply (only a dollop. Too much gets ugly fast.), it quickly goes back to normal and I put on the rest of my face just fine.

This is the best sunscreen I have ever used. Doesnt make me greasy, no break outs, no film. Just wow. Neutrogena products are good, overall.

Honestly, this isn't a bad sunscreen. There is definitely better (aveeno's sunscreen is the best), but for some people, this might be perfect. It doesn't make me greasy, or give me a weird white cast. The problem was that something in this sunblock broke me out in hives. Clearly, I'm allergic to something.

I am looking for a good BODY sunscreen because Socal's summer sun isn't the most friendly. First off packaging is pretty standard, although for the body the size isn't the most convenient. The consistency of the suncreen isn't too thick, but its not the easist to blend. On my arm and legs I do notice a slight whitish cast at first, but that eventually fades withing 30 mins. The scent is not overpowering, I can only smell a little bit of that "suncreen smell" when I stick my hand directly under my nose. My only problem with this is that it is NOT dry-touch as it claims. I wake up at 6 everyday for school because classes start at 7:15 and I leave the house at 7. I put this on around 6:50 everyday, and by 3 period I feel a slight stickiness. Multiple friends have come up to me and hugged/touched me and asked me why I'm so sticky, so I know it's not only my imagination. The stickiness progresses throughout the day so by the time school ends and I get home (around 3:20) I feel gross and dirty and have to take a shower immediately. The feeling is the same one gets after a long workout where you've sweat a lot. Problem is I'm student aide for Track so I DON'T exercise or sweat, so I know the source of the stickiness is the sunscreen. Also, my skin looks kind of glossy after one-two hours, so I assuming that if you put this on your face you might end up looking like a grease-ball.

Ugh! Bought a huge package of this at Cotsco and ended up having to give it all away. Long story short - I had bumps and dry patches all over my face - all over. I thought it was a million things, fabric softener, medications, my dog, etc. After going one week without fabric softener, another week drinking tons of water in order to flush out remnants of the meds, and avoiding my dog for another week :-( I still had my bumps and dry patches. I then realized that I had started using the sunscreen again to take my pup out for her long walks since all my freckles were starting to pop out. It has been one week since I stopped wearing the sunscreen and my face is now recovering.

I put the ingredients in my sunscreen simulator and unfortunately this only has an spf of 24 with a ppd of 9.1, the ppd is less than the lubriderm spf 30 moisturizer. I put it on my face everyday for 3 months and it didn't break me out, I didn't burn, but I hate it when sunscreens lie about their SPF value. And its not enough PPD for a sunscreen.

This sunscreen is truly dry-touch cus it's very drying on my skin and after a few hours of wearing it, I could see my facial skin looking very flaky and dry. Also, it leaves a prominent white cast which is impossible to blend in. The only thing that I like about this sunscreen is that it didn't irritate my skin/ make my skin red + very good uva and uvb protection

I love this stuff, plus my dermatologist says it has the good stuff (avobenzone @ 3%) which is good for broad spectrum UVA and UVB. BUT, I am a runner/jogger and I have a problem when I sweat because it tends to irritate and sting in my eyes. So, best advice: if you sweat at the beach or exercise, avoid using this around your eyes if your are sensitive like me.

I love this sunscreen, i usually just use it on my face, i never get burnt wearing it because of the high spf, Its a tad pricey though but i can usually find a good deal on it in winners. My only complaints is its a bit difficult to rub in. And if you dont rub it in enough your skin turns white. So i recommend using a mirror applying this sunscreen.

I've purchased this last year and used it when I go out running in the morning then I wash it off in the shower. Everything was okay then, loved the "dry touch".
This year, I has a laser procedure done to remove my freakles so I've started using this every day to protect my skin. I've started noticing that my face became very dry and there's this permanent red dry patch on my face. Everything I've applied to my face to moisturize it just burned.
I then spent several gloomy days indoors and hence, no need for sunblock and the patch went away! But it came back within 2 days of using this.
I've read a lot of similar reviews online. Guess this is not good for long term use.

My aunt gave me this one time when we were going to the beach and i loved it.
The consistency is heavy but feels light on the skin and didn't turn oily later. I used it on my body and face and reapplied twice and it protected me well.
AND it didn't break me out, which most sunscreens do, especially those for the beach with high SPF.
Also, it's not that expensive considering it lasts a long time, even if used everyday!

So I have been looking around reviews about this product, and I wasn't sure whether I should get SPF 50 or 70, And the reason why I got this product was because i'm going to india soon, last time when I went, I had SPF 50, But in L'oreal, and I still got tanned which I hate.
so this time I was thinking about 'how about spf 70'
I tried it out, on my hand, and my lord it was dry touch!
it's excellent! it's not those type where it clogs your pores because it has such a high SPF, It's good, dry touch, and no white cast to it.
If your thinking about whether to buy it or not, I suggest you to buy it! and it's not expensive anyways! O:-)

I really had high hope for this product, 'cause i have seen people raves about this sunscreen. But it turned out not working for me. this sunblock has a very thick consistency, which i don't like, and I found it is hard to spread the product on my face. Also it made me EXTREMELY oily after 3-4 hrs. But the good thing is, it didn't make me break out or anything.

Run, don't walk, in the opposite direction to this sunscreen! I found this to be the worst $14 (AUD) I have ever spent. It caused tiny itchy bumps as well as red patches all over my face. Needles to say, not a good look! If I was the only person this happened to I would give it the benefit of the doubt, but after reading many other similar reviews I wonder why it is still even on the market.I'm just glad I didn't put this anywhere near my children. Straight to the bin it goes :(

I bought this sunscreen to use while on vacation. It offered excellent protection from the sun - i wore it everyday and reapplied often for seven days and barely got any color. As I was reading reviews, I noticed that many reviewers have mentioned this product gave them a rash. Both my husband and I got a bumpy rash on our upper back/neck after a few days of using this sunscreen, but it didn't really occur to me that it could be from the product until I read the other reviews. Maybe we were sensitive to it, or could have been coincidental...? In any case, definitely kept us protected from the sun and will likely use it again while keeping an eye out for rashes.

I use Neutrogena's SPF30 on my face but I wanted to increase it to SPF70 last summer, but this just doesn't work well on my face. Something about it goes chalky and thick and doesn't absorb as well as the SPF30 version of this product. I will have to see how the SPF45 holds up, but for now I use the 70 on my neck and chest every single day, even if only a little bit of skin is exposed.
I really like the oil control these products provide, and sometimes my laundry detergent will make my neck or chest break out if I am not super careful. This provides a sort of buffer between my skin and clothes so those areas are less pronte to break out, which I really like.
Sometimes I will add more sunscreen on my face when I am getting too shiny! It controls oil that well! I love Neutrogena sunscreens, although I imagine using them on the whole body would be prohibitively expensive (I Banana Boat Sheer for the body).
