Super good protection & smell! It leaves an oily cast which is slightly annoying but it melts into the skin after 20-30 minutes. Love the high SPF- makes it very effective. Good price point as well, would use this again and again as my holy grail sunscreen.

As a very pale person, I burn, and badly! After trying this spf I've decided that this is my go to forever! It's not extremely oily or anything but my one complaint is do not apply it when you just got a manicure! It somehow takes the shine off the nail polish.

Now I used these for my family when we went to the beaches in CA and now my mother sun burns so easy. This did a decent job at not letting her roast alive but in the end she did peel a bit but it could have been worst. Now might be careful around sensitive skins.

I have always been a fan of neutrogena sun screen and this is no exception. I mix a little with my daily face lotion every day. I do like the smell but if that bothers you just mix to dilute it. Super affordable and can fit in your purse. I use it everyday.

One of my favorite sunscreens. I like how this product feels all over my body and can use it on my face too. It is a good value and is readily available in economy sizes/values at Costco.

First, I love the way this lotion smells. It's that sweet coconut smell. It also goes on very light. I do not feel sticky at all. At the same time, I definitely feel like it is providing great protection and I have yet to burn while using this sunblock

I have to use a high Speed because my skins burns easily. The packaging is continent and allows for easy use. It is very gentle on my skin answer goes on smoothly. It can be a little pricey but it is worth the money. I buy at least 2 bottles every spring!

The SPF 70 really does protect me from sunburns. I also like the lotion formula, since the sprays don't seem to protect as well. Neutrogena also seems more hypoallergenic since I've never had a negative skin reaction.

The product provide a good sunscreen protection especially for my kids that like playing outside. My oldest daughter plays beach volleyball and it provide an even tan and the skin does not feel burnt. Price is reasonable to what you get for sun protection.

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.
