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.

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. 😉

Not greasy. Didn't burn my eyes when I sweated. Almost didn't tan because it works so well. Great product that will become my daily go to due to the high spf and the ease of use.

I have tried a lot of sunscreen, and this is by far the best I have found for my face.

1. It goes on completely dry. You can't feel it AT ALL. I've been able to feel all the other sunscreens I've tried. You don't feel like there's oil on your skin clogging your pores.

2. The smell isn't overwhelming.

3. When you sweat, you don't feel it dripping down your face as with other sunscreens.

My go to when going to the pool or out in the sun. I want to preserve my skin so this really protects it from sun damage. Haven't burned when I use it and only apply it once a day

Love love love! I'm a very pale person and I put this all over my legs arms face and back and it lasted all day! Personally I love the smell of sunscreen so that didn't effect me but it was a little greasy.

MUST MUST HAVE! I love this sunscreen so much! I used it all summer long and never got a sunburn. I will definitely be using this product as my sun protectant. The value is a little higher than your “average” sunscreen but it is so worth it. I even use it to put on my very sensitive face!

I bought some of this product for my trip to Florida because we would be spending a lot of time on the beach and shopping so we needed a sunscreen that would actually work so my friend said to try this and I'm so glad I did because no one got sunburnt so I will definitely buy this again

THE best smelling sunscreen ever-- unless you prefer coconuts and tropical scents. This sunscreen smells fresh with florals that smell like they are found in coastal places. You can find this everywhere and I would recommend to all because it provides great coverage and a lasting aroma.

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.
