I prefer lotion sunscreens over the sprays. I had never tried this until I went to the beach in July. I was so happy with this! It was not sticky or greasy on my skin. I had to reapply, but the sunscreen did not feel Cakey at all, and I was able to spend hours in the sand without being burned!

This is my favorite sunscreen ever!!!! Unlike other sunscreens it does not have that awful smell. This sunscreen is the only sun screen I will use. I really find this product to work and definitely recommend it.

This sunscreen works and the high spf gives a feeling of protection from the menacing sun. Sadly, the product is oily and when it dries feels rubbery. In addition, the smell, in my humble opinion is unbearable.

No. This sunscreen scent attracts bees, and the entire time I wore this outside it was a nightmare. Save yourself and get any other sunscreen, even other neutrogena ones are better.

I am super pale, ghosty pasty pale. I need sunscreen that's really strong or I turn into a tomato. There is no in between, I am a ghost or a tomato. This is one of the only sunscreens that will help protect me, along with cowering from the sun. 😉

Great product! Works well with my dry sensitive skin, but doesn't leave hat greasy typical sunscreen feeling over your skin. With this I definitely don't burn (I have fair skin) but I can still get a nice tan.

This sunscreen is oil-free and feels great on my skin. If used correctly, you'll defintely prevent a sun burn. I bought it at Target and it met my highest expectations. Nice brand. I recommend it to anyone. I will defintely buy this product again.

Goes on easily and dries quickly and non greasy. Has a nice smell to it that isn't your typical sunblock smell. Price is average compared to other brands. Only thing I buy for myself 😃

This has been my go-to sunscreen for many years. I wore it through many softball tournaments, and it stayed on all day! It completely soaks into the skin, without leaving an oily residue. It also has a very refreshing smell in comparison to other sunscreens. I will continue using this sunscreen!

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.
