Might cause rash/acne At first I really liked this sunblock because it was light and felt great on my skin. Especially my face, it didn't look oily. But after a couple of weeks I started to break out really bad. I found out from my doctor it was the sunscreen, It has Helioplex and in some people it can cause rash or even breakouts. I rarely get acne but this really caused a problem on my face. My face cleared back after I stopped using this product.
Always being told I'm shiney when I have sunblock on my face I tried this product. I thought it looked ok on my skin after I applied it but after it dried it was very chalky on my fair sensitive skin. It also made my sensitive skin turn red when I was outside in the heat. I switched to a mineral sunblock last year with no problems
Way too greasy. I love all things Neutrogena except the sunscreen. I cannot recommend.
I love Neutrogena sunscreen usually but I have tried this sunscreen twice and both times had a reaction.
I bike often and I applied this product mainly to my face because I have some sun damage on my cheeks and nose. Sadly about 20 min into the ride in sweating and all the sunscreen went into my eyes. It started burning...wasnt a good experience
Good sunscreen ,but not environmentally friendly I used to love this sunscreen a few years ago, because it provided great protection, it was light enough to put on your face without causing streaks or a breakout, and it didn't feel or look greasy. The ingredient list is shorter than many of the other chemical sunscreens. The big issue I have with this sunscreen is that it is a chemical sunscreen, and chemical sunscreens kill the fish/ coral reef. Also , chemical sunscreens could potentially cause cancer. I would still be buying this sunscreen if it was made with ingredients that were better for the environment.
Average at best I've gotten a terrible rash both times I've tried this sunscreen. On top of that it didn't stay very long and I sweat it into my eyes,which hurt way more than any other sunscreen I've used.
Hard to wash off. leaves a residue. Burns eyes. I switched to their mineral sunscreen which I prefer.
It works perfectly fine for me, but it made my mom's sensitive skin break out and gave her dark patches. So if you have sensitive skin, I'd be careful.
This sunscreen definitely kept me from getting burnt in St. Lucia, and it didn't feel greasy. However, I didn't feel it absorbed as well as I thought it did, b/c I ended up with white streaks on some of my clothing from in when putting my shirt on or taking it off at the beach. And I alsways wait at least five minutes after putting sunscreen on to out my shirt on over my bathing suit, just in case! It took a few washes and stain treatments to get it all out.
Since my whole family is fair-skinned, I worry about sun damage to our skin. This is the best that I have found. But it is very expensive.
I love how strong the sunscreen it, and how it protects my skin from the sun. But it is way too greasy, and my skill looks so oily.
Love that it's not sticky and absorbs instantly. It doesn't have a bad smell and I can wear it under makeup.
I like this because it does not cause you to be shiny (I have oily skin). Very sheer even with multiple applications throughout the day. I use the spf 70 and 85 on my face - I am going through a series of peels that have alpha or beta hydroxy acids and I need to be extra protected. This is not as chalky looking on dark skin as other sunblocks I have tried, but you still need to apply in a thin layer just to make it easier to blend in with your skin.
I have used this product for the last few years. I love the sheerness and the smell makes me think of summer now evenwhen I use it in the dead of winter. I can even get my husband to use it regularly because it is so lightweight. It does need to be reapplied fairly regularly if sweating or swimming but for this kind of protection I think it is worth it.
