I love this sunscreen so much. Every time I use it in the summer, I'm reminded of the beach. I love the way it smells and how much it moisturizes my skin. Just make sure it dries before jumping into water or else it'll get white and streaky

Used this sunscreen this past summer and it did a great job. My boyfriend used it during an all weekend baseball tournament and didn't get a burn. He also stayed moisturized and his skin didn't dry out.

I am really pale and I need strong protection. I bought the lotion form because it's less expensive than the spray ones. The packaging is cute and the quality is really nice but I feel like it still is too expensive, I would rather use an IMAGE Skincare sunscreen

I have been using the Neutrogena beach defence sunscreen regularly. It is very gentle to use on the skin. It has a handy flip top lid for ease of use, making it easy to distribute product. I brought it from my local chemist. I would,like to see Neutrogena make a facial sunscreen in the beach defence range.

Hard to find in India, I got from Thailand when I was on a holiday there. Though we spent most of our holiday on the beach, we did not get sunburned at all!! It met all our expectation and more. Hope to get it again when we go to our next beach holiday.

This smells great and has prevented me from getting a horrible sunburn after all the hours out in the sun. This doesn't have the usual smell that all sunscreens usually have and I really enjoy that. It does have a slightly oily feel when first applied, but eventually is absorbed into your skin.

What is this lotions scent? Also, is it a body sunscreen or just faces?

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.
