It is an excellent sunscreen protects skin fine sunlight, does not leave stains and leaves your skin soft and smooth,
It is not like other protectors that only gives you protection for an estimated time
I do charm and would continue using....

THis is one o the best sunscreens I have ever used! I have really fair skin and so sunscreen is a must for me, even in the spring. so to find a sunscreen that works and STAYS ON is awesome! I used this sunscreen in Mexico and it stayed on through the backpacking, the diving, the walking and everything. Definitely one of my favorites.

Love the beach defense sunscreen. I however can't tell a difference in the 30 versus 70 spf protection. This is the sun screen that I prefer to use and it protects the skin so well without drying it out

This is my favorite sunscreen. SPF 70 makes me feel super safe from the sun's rays and it doesn't leave those white streaks like other sunscreens or leave your skin looking ashy. And in my opinion, it smells amazing. I would use it daily.

Great spf, great coverage. As long as you use it as directed and reapply it works perfect. I get the travel sized bottles for traveling during the summer. I heard neutrogena isn't the best, or safest based on reports so I took away a star!

This is one of the only sunscreens I use on a regular basis. I find that other sunscreens make me break out or cause irritation. I bought this product at Walmart and Target. It doesn't have an overwhelming scent. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone I know!

Bottles of Neutrogena sunscreen everywhere, the car, my purse, the bathroom, well even in my husbands tackle box! Very necessary, works great, it absorbs quickly, my skin doesn't feel oily and the smell is good. Would totally buy again..

This stuff lasts forever and kept me from a gnarly sunburn on a sunny Florida beach. I'd totally use this year round too. I didn't feel overly greasy or too dry either. It was super gentle and I would totally recommend this to others :)

This is a brand I trust. It smells good and does not leave a sticky residue. My daughter is a LifeGuard and this is the only sunscreen she uses on her body. She uses the face formula on her face and neck.

I can't say the Neutrogena Beach Defense is better or worse than a competitor brand. It did its job in protecting my skin from sunburn. The main reason I used it was because of the high SPF factor of 70. Because I was seriously burned several years ago, I have to protect my skin from the sun and I wanted the highest SPF factor.

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.
