Neutrogena CoolDry Sport Sunscreen Spray provides superior protection even during the most intense activities. Thanks to the new MICROMESH technology, this sunscreen allows the sweat to pass and evaporate while the long-lasting and clinically proven protection stays where it should be. That way, your skin stays naturally cool, comfortable and protected.
Wide spectrum protection against UVA / UVB rays
Resistant to water and sweat (80 minutes)
Lightweight, quick-absorbing formula
Oil free, no PABA

I literally have turned so many of my friends to this sunscreen, it’s amazing! I’m a fair skinned, freckled girl in my 20s and I want to keep my skin in good shape. My husband and I went to Jamaica and I sprayed this on liberally before going out to the pool our first day there. Needless to say the drinks were flowing and I kind of forgot about reapplying. I got back to the room later expecting to be fried, but I wasn’t! Don’t get me wrong, there were very small areas I missed that were literally blistered, and I thank god for this sunscreen saving my skin. It’s a miracle in a can basically!

Bought this product from Costco for my family's trip to Hawaii and it saved everyone from sun burning and sun tanning. The lock option on the nozzle was very convenient. No one had a problem with the sunscreen being an irritation. A single spray can will last a whole family a couple days when on vacation. We reapplied the sunscreen all throughout the day without it making our skin feel yucky. Be careful not to rub your eyes with sunscreen on them because it stings like crazy.

This is my family's go to sunscreen during the summer.  The spray application makes it very easy to apply on my squirming 7 year old and also myself.  If goes on and rubs in easily.  I like that it is water proof and a high SPF.  When we use it and reapply it as directed no one gets sunburned.  It also smells pretty good which is an added bonus.  It isn't as cheap as a store brand but I find it is worth the money.  We buy it in 2 packs at Costco but you can buy it at any big box store.

This is the only sunscreen I will use. I personal only like using the type that sprays on because to me it feels a lot less greasy. 70 SPF is a huge bonus, but the way that this feels is anything less than greasy. I make sure to reapply especially if you are any where near the water. But wearing this for a beach day makes me feel 100% protected, and refreshed.

I love this sunscreen. It is lightweight and fast absorbing.  It does not leave my skin feeling greasy. This is my go to sunscreen for the beach. My son and I are very light skinned and the sun at the beach is way more brutal than here at home so we need something strong to protect us and this sunscreen does it. It is waterproof so we can play in the water and not have to worry about reapplying ever 30 minutes. Overall a great sunscreen to keep my family protected!

Love the fact its a spray on, i hot a little burn but not that serious i actually liked how it looked which didn't even hurt. The sunburn actually turned into a nice tan. Am a tanish color already mybe thats why i didn't get really burned so am not sure how other skin tones would work with this but for me it worked just fine. I'll be purchasing this only.
