Neutrogena Beach Defense sunscreen is a wonderful product that is very effective. It meets all of my expectations. I purchased it at my local supermarket. I am a first time user. I recommend it to others.

I expected more from Neutrogena. It's creamy and rubs in really well, the smell is real beachy.
I don't feel like it's the best sunscreen out there. With in a hour my skin was darkening or red in some spots.

Got it for the first time in Aruba last year. I'm not used to go to the beach because I have really pale and sensitive skin. My aunt (that lives there, gave me this product and worked like a charm! It has a great SPF (70) and doesn't wash out in the minute I step in the water, so for the first time in forever, I didn't have to reapply every 20 min, to avoid looking like a shrimp haha. The sunscreen smell is really strong but not bad. I would not use for everyday walking in the city for that. But for the beach/pool is PERFECT. Just in case, I have a mini size bottle in my purse everytime I go out. (The one in the pic)

I love this sunscreen! It smells so good and it works wonders. I used it when I used to play competitive tennis and it would stay on through everything without getting my racket grip all nasty.

One of my favorites from Neutrogena, smells good, long lasting protection, lightweight, no breaks up my face and helps me not to get a sunburn in my beach vacation. The price is really good.

The only
sunscreen I’ve ever used and will ever use. So moisturizing and does not make
my skin dry. It has no funky smell like other sunscreens do. Definitely one of
the best sunscreens out there, with a great price too!

My skin is changing as I am celebrating more birthdays. But, I still enjoy the beach and tanning, and I live in the deep South where hot summer days last for several months. I was using a store brand sunscreen for a while then noticed I needed more than just basic protection. After browsing the sunscreen aisle, I found that Neutrogena Beach Drfense offered everything I needed for my skin type at a good price point. I've been using it for two years and found that it keeps my skin moisturized without the oil slick feel. It lasts for serval hours, one application is usually enough depending on how long I'm out. Also, I use it as a sunscreen under my makeup, year round, and no issue with oiliness.

This is the ONLY type of sunscreen I use and I LOVE it! I would definitely recommend it if you are looking to buy it and are very pale, like me. I burn extremely easily but this sunscreen definitely saves the day. It's very easy to get on, and it's very good for putting on your face. I'd recommend getting a spray on sunscreen for your body, but I always use the lotion one on my face. It's very good, anytime I wear it I have not gotten sunburnt. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone with pale skin! It'll save your day!

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.
