    Wow

    I love this sunscreen! My skin doesn't feel sticky or oily whatsoever when I use it, it smells nice, light and fresh! It leaves a healthy radiance to my skin which is very nice. I think this is one of the best sunscreens I have tried! I love Neutrogena and this product can be added to their long list of successes!

    Wondeful addition to my suncare routine

    This sunscreen is great. It doesn't smell like suncreen usually smells.

    This suncreen is very light on the skin and does not feel greasy, but it still seems to moisturize my skin.

    I love the packaging. It is simple and smooth, and the tube allows the user to use all of the product (unlike a hard plastic bottle).

    While the price of this suncreen is a bit high, it seems to be worth it for a quality product.

    Hard to tell when it isn't summer, but it is great!

    I actually used this as my moisturizer for a few days and I also applied it to my two year old son. It says it is safe for kids as well which you don't find on some products like this. I love how controversial it makes the product because it means i only have to buy one sun screen instead of one for me and one for him. I would pay the money for this just for the hydrating properties and the scent! I love the aloe scent and when i applied it to my sons arms he couldn't stop smelling himself HAHA! Not oily and even though we couldn't test it in the sun, it is indeed water resistant! Great stuff!

    Lightweight and no white cast

    I received the Neutrogena Hydro boost Water Gel SPF 50 for free as part of the chick advisors program. I love that it doesn’t leave a white cast, usually sunscreens leave me looking a little sickly but this blends in. It doesn’t make my oily/combo skin greasy, has a light scent, and the texture isn’t heavy at all. I’ll definitely be using this during the summer months

    definitely better than traditional sunscreen!

    I found this very similar to one of Neutrogena's other sunscreens, the "Ultra Sheer Face Sunscreen". I find this better than the Ultra Sheer face version because it is much easier to apply. Instead of being extremely liquidy (like water almost) this is a nice consistency but does not feel like a cream, which is great! I like the way the product goes on and that it doesn't "feel" greasy on my skin (feels like it dries quickly), but I think it still made my skin look a little greasy. I think it's hard to avoid with suncreen, so I will say that at least this product made my skin LESS greasy looking than traditional/cheaper sunscreen. Also, this smells almost exactly like Banana Boat brand sunscreen - which I would much prefer to the traditional scent of sunscreen! Personally I did not have a problem with the smell, but if you need something unscented than this is unfortunately not for you.

    Mixed feelings on this one...

    The first thing I noticed is that this product smells nothing like sunscreen. Which is a good thing in some cases. I HATE the smell of "normal" sunscreen but LOVE the smell of Banana Boat haha. I found the smell of this product quite perfumey. It went on smoothly but leaves a greasy feeling. But I guess all sunscreens do? The price is pretty average for a nicer sunscreen. Can't really comment on effectiveness because it hasn't been very sunny yet this year. Overall not really sure if I'd buy this. It smells great but so does Banana Boat....

    Amazing product

    I have very fair and sensitive skin which is often sunburnt, having a wearable spf moisturizer allows me to be confident and not worry about applying sunscreen. It is non-oily and very silky smooth. Definitely worth a purchase and provides excellent protection! Would definitely recommend!!

    not summer yet but okay anyway

    I received this from chickadvisor in exchange for a review. I loved this product, I used it for 2 days or so, it's not summer yet but I love that it's moisturizing and doesn;t leave a smelly or greasy feel on the face on some other sunscreens, I love that it has a high SPF, I would recommend and would buy this product again

    Trop hate à l’été!

    Je suis surprise de la texture agreable de cette creme, je suis quelqun qui a absolument besoin de mettre de la creme solaire pour aller m’exposer au soleil et ce produit est clairement ce qui le manquais à mon sac de plage! Je l’ai recu gratuitement par Neutrogena et je suis vraiment satisfaite🤗
