This sunscreen is a little oily but works very well with fair skin. Almost never get sunburn if I apply every hour. Does cause me to breakout

Seems to do the job. Oil free, doesn't clog pores and doesn't feel sticky. No weird smell either. Have to reapply after an hour or so though

When I used this I was in Mexico. When I got back to the hotel I was a little bit darker. I didn't have any sunburn. I recommend this product

Great! Went on a few cruises and brought this along. Works great but just needs to be applied every 2 hours if used at the beach in the open.

Overall, this lotion does a good job of protecting my fair skin as long as I apply it regularly (and in a thick layer). Smells great as well!

I didn't like this sunscreen. It didn't work on my skin. I used this for the first time and was disappointed it was too greasy for my liking

Used in Mexico and it protected my fair skin tone. I liked it because it didn't feel greasy going on and it soaks into the skin very quickly

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.
