I've tried a lot of sunscreen over the years due to my lack of ability to stay out of the sun! Most are super oily, some cause breakouts, but out of every sunscreen I tried, this works the best. Goes on wet, dries quick. No harsh odor, no breakouts, and the best thing in the world is that it wasn't expensive at all.

My family loves all of the Neutrogena products, and this is our absolute favorite. We have used it for countless years, whenever we go to the beach or into the pool. It lasts a long time and does not have much of a scent, or grease, so it is a constant purchase for us. We would definitely recommend this product.

I really enjoy this sunscreen (And I am not a fan of sunscreen). This product meets my expectations and provides gentle coverage. I am heavily tattooed so it is very important for me to have a good sunblock. I cannot say that this product has room for improvement as it does everything you're purchasing it to do.

I keep the trial size of this sunscreen handy in my purse. I live in Los Angeles and it's sunny year-round.
The scent is pleasant, however, if you purchase the aerosol version, it's pretty strong.

I have very fair skin so I need sunblock with a high SPF so I don't burn. I am on the beach all summer and love this sunblock so much! It met my expectations and went above them! I will use this product every summer. A little goes a long way and it's reasonably priced!

I purchased this product for a summer vacation to Turks and Caicos. It worked great! I burn very easily and often break out with heat rash. I had no issues with beach defense and my skin was amazingly beautiful and sun kissed.

We went through this sunblock like crazy a couple of years ago on vacation in Palm Springs. Outside in the desert sun all day, in and out of the pool, this kept us from burning throughout the trip. Of course we had to reapply every few hours, but that's to be expected.

Really like to use this on my face as I am very pale and burn easily. It is super easy to find and i buy it usually at CVS or Publix. I usually don't reapply and spend hours in the sun and will get a little pink so it is pretty effective. It could feel less oily on the skin and lighter but overall I would recommend.

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.
