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.

It took me 30 years to find a product that would keep me from getting a sunburn. I am so happy to have found it. I cannot make it through a summer without this product. It is a must have for me. It would be great if it was a little cheaper but I will just continue watching for sales. It sprays on well and dries fast. I recommend it to everyone I know, especially my fellow super pale skinned friends.

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

This sunscreen is full coverage with out being oily or blotchy. When in the water it lasts for an hour before reapplying is needed it is easy to use and doesn't leave a lingering smell. Perfect and practical for the water because it doesn't wear down quickly and has a reasonable price point.

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.

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.

My sister got burnt from a firework a few summers ago and we were going on a cruise only 3 short weeks later. This is the kind of sunscreen that the doctor recommended for her to use. It had a nice smell and sprayed well. The only thing I didn't like about it is that it turned the inside of some of my bikini tops from white to a yellowy-off white color so I didn't like it for that. I've never had another brand of sunscreen do that before. Other than that, it was a great sunscreen and I definitely recommend it for people with burns or other skin issues.

I always use this sunscreen. The SPF 50 is amazing and it goes on really lightly. It smells so good and it doesn’t leave your skin too oily. The price point is great at Costco because you can get it in a double (or more) pack.
