Seriously by far the best sun screen I've ever used. In allergic to the sun and if exposed for too long I break out in hives. Thus stuff works magic and it smells good too!

My family used this product over the summer, and we had mixed reviews. The spray is certainly more convenient, but this project was pretty oily and was uncomfortable to have on the skin. The kids preferred the pray and so they used it more, but we noticed that it was pretty oily.

I'm a fair skinned girl and my boyfriend is a pale ginger.Smells great, works great. Recommend for anyone who hates the sun

I give this product a 4 star because sometime when I use it I still get sunburn. But when I applied it it lasted till I got my body wet in the water so after you come out of the water you have to put more on you but on the other hand it works great. This product goes for around $8.07

Neutrogena beach defense is one of my top picks for sandy beachy days when you need full coverage everywhere (even those hard to reach spots), and you don't necessarily want to spend all day rubbing in a lotion. It's a quick spray-and-done deal, and the SPF 70 keeps even my pasty white skin happy and healthy.

I love my Neutrogena Beach Defense spray! I can't stand having to apply thick, greasy lotions, so the fact that this comes as a spray is a big plus! I never but when I use this even if I'm out in the sun for hours (and I'm VERY pale and prone to sunburn). It dries instantly and stays put, unless I go swimming. I always carry a bottle of this in my beach bag!

This spray sunblock is absolutely amazing. Stays on no matter what and even spray means total coverage. Really waterproof (make sure to totally dry before entering water). Only issue is the active chemical that is not good for ocean life. Otherwise a fantastic product for the pool, golf, pool parties, humid climates.

This bottle does go fast and be sure to give a nice even coat to avoid a sunburn. I burn easy so I tend to stick with creams for a thick layer but once I want to reapply I'm too tired to repeat the process. This spray is great in it takes much less effort. I spray it on and go right back to tanning.

Fantastic spray! Picked this up at Costco I think. Great value and nice scent that isn't too heavy or long lasting. The spray function is really helpful and the sunblock itself doesn't leave as much of a greasy residue as other sunblocks I've tried. Great add to the beach bad!

Probably one of my favorite sunscreens I've ever used. I got mine in a two pack that included a two mini sunscreen lotion tubes from Costco. The price was fair so I was okay trying it. I love how the sunscreen doesn't smell like sunscreen and it doesn't feel greasy at all!
