Both my husband and I have used this product for a couple summers in a row now. We are both fair skin, my husband far more than me, and it has prevented sunburns very well. We even went to Hawaii and applied this sunscreen every couple of hours while t the beach.

This is a product that travels with us wherever my family goes. From soccer practices to vacations at the beach or a swim in the pool, I rely on this sunscreen to keep sunburns away. It's not greasy and lasts for several hours before it's necessary to reapply.

I bought this at the recommendation of my dermatologist. I know that SPF 70 is somewhat overkill, but I'm pale and taking no chances. I reapply frequently, and I love how easy the spray makes applying sunblock. It goes on evenly, smells great, and works really well.

This is the only sunblock that I use. Neutrogena always makes such quality products that have yet to fail me. I love that the spray bottle is easily tossed in my beach bag or purse, and I don't have to worry about it leaking like traditional sunblock bottles.

You have to protect your skin from the sun! This product does just that and doesn't leave you feeling oily and gross. I purchased this at Target for the thousandth time. I will continue to use this product as protecting your skin from the sun is so important.

Love this sunscreen. I know that with 70 spf, my skin is protected from the sun. As mentioned on my other review I don't like being in the sun but living in Miami is something I can't avoid especially I have 3 active toddlers. The best go to sunscreen for me.

Love this stuff! It has protected my skin very well in various settings (hot beach, on a lake, doing yard work), even in extreme heat. Also smells really good (very tropical) and doesn’t leave my skin too sticky. Always get a good bulk deal on this at Costco.

This sun screen is okay. I like spray sunscreen for the beach because I feel like I always have sand on me and this helps me not have to get more sand on me! But, as with sprays, I feel like I still get a sun burn and not as great of coverage as I do with a sun screen lotion.

Ive been using this for 3 years now. I first got it when i had my daughter. My mother jn law recommended it for my daughter since it is what she used (she has had skin cancer in numerous spots so anything she uses has to be the best). It has been wonderful. My daughter has never had the first sunburn!
