I have very light skin and have burned for my entire life to the point of blistering. I've tried many basic sunscreens and finally decided to try something else. With the Beach Defense, I can stay in the sun for hours and hours without burning. I reapply after about 2-3 hours, depending on how my skin is feeling and I do try to hang out in shade as much as possible too. Events that used to guarantee burns are now burn-free and I'm so happy to have found this product! I also like that it's actually not greasy and I don't feel the need to wash my hands after applying it. It has a nice subtle smell and doesn't smack you in the face with that typical sunscreen smell.

This is one of my favorite sun screens. It's great because it doesn't have a strong harsh smell and it does not leave a sticky residue that's left on your skin.

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.
