I used this sunscreen just last weekend at the beach. I applied it twice and went home without a sunburn after 6 hours on the beach. I love it's smell & I like that it's a light application, so I'm not left feeling greasy. I would definitely recommend it!

This sunscreen is great. It keeps you protected and has a great scent. It smell like coconut and refreshing all at once. I would recommend this to anyone. Also, it is better than the spray in my opinion. I think it protects your skin better from the sun.

Better than Neutrogena's clear face sunscreen! My friend let me borrow this one day at the same time I had started to consider Neutrogena's clear-face line. I love the way this makes my face feel and it works amazingly. When comparing the two this has a higher spf and I prefer it's soft finish compared to the "clear face" spf 55 which has a smooth finish.

So many sunscreen lotions make me feel nauseous.
But I don't mind the smell of this one, in fact, I actually like it.
It works very well, I'm able to apply it to my face and body.
It soaks in nicely, not leaving any globs or smears.
I would buy this again.

It's my go-to for sun protection at the beach or the pool! It last long, even though chasing the kids in the surf, and I've never had a burn from it. And it does not make my skin break out, unlike some of the other sunscreens that I have tried in the past.

I am extremely pale so sunscreen with a high spf is always what I look for. I have relied on this sunscreen for a couple years now and it hasn't let me down. If you get burnt, its your own fault for not reapplying because when this is on, it protects

This is a must have at the beach. It is blends very well and gives a lot of coverage. It met all of expectations. I personally bought mine at Target for $9.99. To me that is a little pricey but you have for a long time. I am still using mine today. It has a faint sweet smell to it. 5/5 recommend.

I love the smell of this product and that it has such a high SPF. It is very gentle on the skin and doesn't leave any oily residue. I purchased this at Walgreen's and it was very effective. I hate to get a tan or God forbid burn and this made sure I didn't! The only downside was how well it blended, my husband had white wherever he had a lot of hair (arm, chest, face). I would definitely purchase this again!

This sunscreen was the only one I wore all summer because I didn't feel like I was wearing sunscreen when I had it on. It didn't have a heavy feel to or an awful odor like most do. And it still protected well. I use the 50 spf and loved it. I also used their face sunscreen and it did the same thing for me. I would definitely buy and use this again.

Best sun screen I have ever used, because it doesn't leave your skin feeling super oily or super white. Some leave that awful white streak and this doesn't!!! I love love love this. I got in as an extra from a big pack from costco, but i went to find it at my local drug store because i swear by it. Also, it looks great under the makeup i use daily!!

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.
