Smells like piña colada and it works great not to get burned in the sun. Especially with hot weather of a 105 and up.

Not oily, no bad/overpowering smell. It didn't get into my eyes when I was sweating, and it didn't run from sweat.

Does SPF 70 really work? I've been skeptic about the higher the SPF, the less it works. I know Neutrogena is a trusted brand and loved by many, I'm just wanting to make sure before I buy it for vacation.

Is it sweat proof? My husband works outside in Florida, so in the summer he sweats a lot. I want to make sure he isn't going to sweat this off.
