It's hard to find a quick use sun screen that is effective. I am on the lake almost all summer in and out of the water at high elevations. This sunscreen has been one of the best we can find that is easy to get on with all the activity and still really protects your skin.

I use the 30 spf version and I love it!!! I bought this because it was the only option I had at a small pharmacy by my apartment and in so glad I did. It is the best smelling sunscreen I’ve tried and the spray, sprays evenly on my skin. I do rub it in also just in case but I prefer this over banana boat, Hawaiian tropic, and sun bum.

With super sensitive to sun skin I was able to put this on and feel protected and that I won't get a sunburn. Super gentle which also helps with my sensitive skin. Good for its price. I would totally recommend to all of my friends. I buy one before every beach trip.

Love the smell of this, and the texture! Still on the hunt for the perfect sunscreen (I burn like nobodies business) but this one is light, not too greasy and smell phenomenal.  Got a great deal for 2 plus a mini for the face at Costco so great deal all around!

My family has been using this sunscreen for two years now.  I haven't gotten burned once since.  It doesn't smell like normal sunscreen it has a perfume-ish smell to it which is kinda nice and refreshing.  It sprays on dry so when you are at the beach there is no irritating sand on you.

Neutrogena® Beach Defense® Water + Sun Protection Sunscreen Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 70 is my favorite sunscreen to use. We used this when we went on vacation to the beach this past summer and it worked great. I have 3 fair skinned people in my household and it did a great job preventing sunburn while being out in the beach all day.

I love how easy it is to apply this product and you don't have to get your hands greasy! I live on the beach so it's essential for me to always protect my skin from damaging uv rays. It's pretty effective at it's job and I would definitely buy this product again.

Usually, my family uses Hawaiian tropic, but we decided to try neutrogena and I have to say it works very well. It has became our favorite sunscreen! The scent and protection is very nice. Addititionally, the price is reasonable. Therefore, I would buy it again.

We bought Neutragena Beach Defense sunscreen before a family trip to Florida. We spent every day outside on the beach and in the pool and this sunscreen worked wonders! The only downside of the spray is that it discolored the carpet, so best to apply it outside.
this stuff is amazing, it is not sticky or oily. it so easy to put on because its a spray. i would rather use this than lotion. there is no greasy residue at all. it definitely lasts for hours. A little goes a long way so the bottle lasts a long time.
