I love how affective this sunscreen is. I am very prone to sunburns and this is the only brand I will use. It’s a bit pricy compared to other but totally worth it since I avoid being sunburned. It smells great and is great for all skin types.

One of my summer go-tos! Lightweight, easy to spread, and keeps me from getting burned! It’s not greasy at all and smells fantastic! I think I continue buying it for that reason alone lol. Highly recommend!

THIS IS MY FAVORITE SUNSCREEN! I've use it all summer- from waiting in line for concerts all day to beach trips. It smells so good and I've never gotten a sunburn when I apply it according to the directions! I buy 2-3 bottles every summer.

In my opinion I don't have to be at the beach just to use the Neutrogena Beach defense sunscreen. This stuff is so good and so thick. But what I love about it is that it doesn't leave that white filmy look on my skin it blends and so easily

This spf is AMAZING!! After searching for a lotion that did not make my children break out in a rash, I came across this gem. Smells great, no greasy feeling, and no sun burns! Gentle but effective. I recommend this lotion all of the time!

Perfect against the harsh sun rays of Southern California, this sunblock was extremely effective at preventing sunburns and hydrating my skin. Affordable, this can be found both in-store and online. Nice scent, a truly valuable product.

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.
