I used this spray yesterday multiple times while at the beach and followed its instructions. I left the beach looking like a Lobster as I have burns everywhere it was sprayed. The only spots not burned are the ones that I used the cream version of sunscreen. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

This stuff DOES NOT WORK. It does not cover well and does not last. We bought it at Costco and used two bottles very quickly because it doesn't stay on your skin. If you spray it on yourself every 20 minutes I'm sure it's fine, but who wants to do that? I'm very pale and MUST have good sunscreen. I will never buy this stuff again.

So yesterday it was the first time when I used this sunscreen and i was burnt up like a lobster, I blamed MYSELF probably of my poor application. BUT the second time when my friend used it and also burnt up like a lobster , I was on hand for both the initial and re-applications, so I know it was done right. This product just does not work!

The high SPF lures you into buying it, and the nice smell and feel is great---all your pleasant feelings will fade away when you see in several hours that you have been slowly roasting your skin. I should have known better than to trust a beauty brand's sunscreen, usually we go with a beach brand like Banana Boat and have even had better results with generic store brands.

Pale people, avoid this "sunscreen" or you will suffer!

My dermatologist told me that any SPF above 40 is pointless. This is a waste of money.

I don't like this Neutrogena sunscreen,  it makes my skin and face more oily than it already is, and it darkens my skin. I don't feel like it protects my skin from the sun, this is my first time using it and I am not going to buy it again because I don't think it works for my skin.

I found this sunscreen to be so convenient to use because of its spray bottle housing. I really appreciated the fact that it held up well against water contact for about 2 hours before I had to reapply. The main problem I had with this sunscreen is that it gave me an allergic reaction. I had small red bumps all over my body wherever I applied this sunscreen and they were really itchy.  My mom has found me a better alternative in lotion form and that works better for my skin.

I actually borrowed this from a friend while at a pool party. I noticed a strong odor but I didn't hate it. Nuetrogena is usually reasonably priced. I don't remember really loving it so probably won't purchase it.

This also one of the product that I doesn't like much because I got breakout and small bumps. 😔So, I prefer to apply on my hands and legs and not that often.😣 when I applied this sunscreen that time my skin looked really shiny and hydrated so, I was really happy but next day ... horrible small small bumps on my face
