Only suntan lotion we use. Only brand we use too! Wish they had more scents though, I love the scent of Hawaiian Tropic and it is not as cost prohibitive as Laroche Posay Anthelios line

I use it and I love it, it smells very good it is very soft, not greasy and I love it because I can use it on my face and make up without problems, its price is very good. For how good it was with this product I bought one for my mom and I recommend it every time someone wants a good sunscreen.

sim eu adoro produtos oil free. minha pele não é oleosa, mas quando eu uso produtos que não são oil free ela fica oleosa e com acne. então esse protetor solar é otimo porque não me causa esses efeitos. E garante uma ótima proteção solar sem sair facilmente na água

Yes I love oil free products. my skin is not oily but when I use products that are not oil free it gets oily and with acne. so this sunscreen is great because it does not cause me these effects. has good sun protection without leaving the water

When one lives on a tropical stand it feels like you’re at the beach 14/7. So I need a sunscreen that SPF is over 50, this is my go to because neutrogena has never done be wrong in the past. It was cheap cause I got it for 7$ on Amazon

One of my favorite sunscreens to take to the beach. I love that it doesn't smell like typical sunscreens, it blends so easy on the skin so you don't look like a ghost when you first apply it. It's been very effective on sunny days, just be sure to re-apply it constantly (specially if you're at the beach). I bought this sunscreen many times now and recommend it to my friends and family.

I wanted the freedom to play in the water with young master fiddy like a deranged mama deal with a high-energy pup, so I needed to improve my body sunscreen game without breaking my bank account. That's why I ended up tossing a big yellow bottle of Neutrogena beach defense sunscreen lotion (SPF 70) Into my backpack during a grocery run one sunny, desperate day.

I love this product because it's lightweight and doesn't leave a white residue, like most sunscreens. It is highly effective but slightly expensive. I prefer the spray bottle because it gives a more even coverage.

Since I live in the Caribbean, taking care of my skin have become so important to me. I simply apply this sunscreen on my body and I'm ready to go about my day. It absorbs into your skin very well which is a big plus for me. Don't apply to close to the eyes because you don't want it getting into them.

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.
