As a lifeguard this is one of the best sunscreens that doesn't leave an oily residue and allows me to sit straight in 109° F sun with comfort!

I used this sun screen all summer. I’m a red head who burns easy and I survived the summer with no sunburns at all and I feel I owe it to this

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.
