My go to for long days at the beach. I live in Australia where the sun is strong and harsh all summer long. This sun spray protects my pale skin all day long and the scent is so subtle. This products sprays on evenly and is easy to work I tot he skin without leaving obvious white streaks like some lotions can. Highly recommended for anyone who wants full sun cover.

I really like the Neutrogena Beach Defense SPF 70 Spray for sun protection. It's perfect for keeping my pale skin from burning and the fact it's water proof is a bonus so I don't have to worry if I get wet or my sweat rubbing it off. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone I know!

Good sunscreen for on the go use. I've never been burned when using this sunscreen correctly. However, there is a higher chance for user error with this spray (vs. cream), especially if it's breezy, which can lead to patchy application. I think if it gets you to use to sunscreen, it's worth it, as sunscreen is very important for your skin's health. Very water and sweat resistant, but like any sun screen needs re-application after swimming or prolonged use.

 love the smell!! You can't beat it! I've tried the generic brand for this and it is nowhere near the same. I also would go for the spray version versus the lotion because it sprays evenly and it's super convenient. When I go to the beach or pool with friends, my sunscreen (this one) this is a sunscreen that will have you smelling good on the beach versus smelling like medicine, which some other sunscreens tend to smell like.

This is the only sunscreen I use. I work outdoors at a pool up to twelve hours a day during the summer and I absolutely love the consistency and the fact that it is long lasting and waterproof. The scent is also a plus, it is unique and has become my favorite smell of summer.

As someone who is pale as can be, buying a sunscreen with a higher SPF is a must. I adore this brand for that fact alone. Though, it seems that I'm able to wear this Sunscreen in the water- without worrying about whether or not I'll be burned after submerging out of the water.

Only sunscreen I use because I have very very sensitive skin and this is the only sunscreen that doesn't irritate or break out my skin. Very effective as well, I don't get burnt and I still get a little tan. 😋
