This product works very well when applied appropriately. For all those negative reviewers out there please learn how to apply sunscreen (especially spray sunscreen) in the correct manner. It is best to apply in non-windy conditions in a liberal manner to dry skin. After spraying all exposed areas rub it in. Like ALL sunscreens, this needs to be reapplied every 2 hours and within 80 minutes after sweating or water exposure. I have used many different Neutrogena sunscreens and have never had any issues with any of their products - this is a quality product that has consistently protected me when playing beach volleyball for prolonged times in high UV intensity conditions.

Definitely by far the best sunscreen I have used. It sprays perfectly and evenly and doesn't leave that oily residue. It is perfect for the beach and the pool even after you get out of the water it is still lasting. Definitely not sticky like other brands and keep someone like me with highly fair skin from getting burnt. Protects my skin and keeps it healthy. Highly recommended. I am now in Florida so I'm ready for the beach once it warms up a little bit and I will be stocking up on this.

This sunscreen does not leave any greasy feeling on the skin. It works the best when is applied as the directions recommend. That’s spray liberally and spread evenly and 15 minutes before sun exposure. Although it does the job. I still have gotten some sunburn but not severe. The smell is great and doesn’t not smell like chemicals like some sunscreen protection.

this is my favorite sunscreen I have tried. it sprays perfectly and is good for when you go to a beach or a pool you just apple and rub around you're body I highly recommend getting this product. I am especially excited to use this during the summer because its going to be very hot so this sunscreen will give me extra sun protection.

This product is good at protecting from the sun, but I no longer bring spray sunscreen of any kind to the beach.  The beach is a windy place, and you end up spraying the air more than your skin.  With the price of this product, it's not something you want to waste.  You're better off getting the lotion.

I was really excited when I saw this brand had a sunscreen and to my daughter for when she went to the water park but unfortunately even though she had reapplied she still came back a bit burnt so it doesn't seem that it worked as great as I would have liked it too

Neutrogena's Beach Defense has become a regular in my sunscreen routine. It's easy to apply (make sure to rub it in and apply generously, as with any sunscreen), the price is fair, and it doesn't leave behind a residue or greasy feeling.  Regardless of any sunscreen, I do still get burnt from time to time, and I put that back on poor application on my part, not the sunscreen itself. :)

I love using this sunscreen. It has a scent that isn’t too strong and it’s pleasant. I bought it at Duane Reade on a trip to NY before heading to the beach and I keep repurchasing because my whole family uses it. It lasts for a good while before needing to reapply and the spray covers well.

Over the years I have tried many diffrent brands of sunscreen, by far Neutrogena is the best. I love the way it goes on, it is light not heavy and it does an awesome job of protecting my skin and my families skin from the sun.

My go to sunscreen! Affordable in my opinion and I would repurchase. This is super lightweight, non greasy and slight fragrance which is not overpowering, just the way i prefer. If thats what you’re looking for in a sunscreen then give this a try.
