Have to say that I'm very picky with sunscreen. And I'm very impressed with this one. It's not greasy, super easy to apply, the spray is practical, the product is transparent so I don't have to worry about rubbing to much. And it's fast absorbing. Much better than I thought

I always have it in my backpack for sunny days. Saves me 100% from burns and discomfort. If you have really pale skin, use it and you won't regret it.

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.

Over the years I have tried many diffrent brands of sunscreen, by far Neutrogena is the best. I love the way it goes on, it is light not heavy and it does an awesome job of protecting my skin and my families skin from the sun.

This sunscreen does not leave any greasy feeling on the skin. It works the best when is applied as the directions recommend. That’s spray liberally and spread evenly and 15 minutes before sun exposure. Although it does the job. I still have gotten some sunburn but not severe. The smell is great and doesn’t not smell like chemicals like some sunscreen protection.

This works well in protecting the skin against sunburn. It's very easy to apply especially on kids. I don't use this on the face because it breaks me out. It's extremely waterproof that it's difficult to remove from the skin when you shower. Neutrogena® Beach Defense Sunscreen Value Pack

Love this sunscreen! Easy to apply because it's a spray and you just have to go over it with your hands. This also makes it easy to reapply. It's not sticky and doesn't leave any weird residue on your body. Does smell like sunscreen but that doesn't bother me. I would recommend it!
