    Excellent new sunscreen

    I have been waiting forever to get a chance to try this sunscreen and now that I have the opportunity I totally think it was worthwhile. I like the texture and how it sits on my face. No break outs either! I feel hydrated and protected. I will definitely repurchase.

    edit: I did receive it complimentary but like I said in my review I am sincere that I would repurchase!

    Not like your average sunscreen

    This isn't the thick slimy greasy feeling sunscreen I grew up with. It goes on just like a lotion and doesn't feel like your skin has a layer of oily residue ontop. I really like how this sunscreen feels on my skin! And it smells so good so that's a bonus since most sunscreens don't.

    This changes my sunscreen game

    I love looking sunkissed as much as the next chick but I'm pretty sure we're all smart enough now to know how important it is to keep our skin protected. Well this sunscreen is going to keep us protected and hydrated! I got this just in time for Alberta's 3rd winter so I wasn't able to do much sunbathing with it but it has some other great properties that will have me using this all summer long. I used it on my face and it didn't look greasy. I wore make up over top of it and still didn't look greasy, all day. The scent is very light. It absorbs super fast, like really fast. I might have to blame that on the long winter and my dry skin but either way it's nice that it didn't take forever to rub it into the skin. There was no white streaks and it leaves your skin soft like you've just applied a nice moisturizer and not a greasy sunscreen. The price does seem high for a sunscreen but to have one that's non-greasy, nice on the face and very moisturizing I think it'll be worth it.
    I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review.

    My Sunscreen for summer 2018

    Such a lightweight cream. Best part is that it does not leave a white cast specially around my eyebrows. It absorbs well in the skin and does not make the skin sticky. So much better than many other Sunscreen I have used. Thanks to Chickadvisor for sending me this full size Sunscreen for free.

    Finally Adult Sunscreen that works!

    I finally was able to try this product over the weekend because the sun was shining and spring weather is here. I was surprised that the lotion was white when I opened it and looked more like a cream than a gel. I was surprised when I applied it because does have an amazing light texture and is not greasy like traditional sunscreen. I have a very pale complexion so I am someone who has purchased a lot of sunscreen over the years. I like that this product has a high SPF rating (50). The product feels more appropriate for adult use than the traditional lotion products I have been using. Although this is pricy, it is totally worth the money and I will be buying again.

    My new go-to Suncreen

    I received this product as part of the Product Review Club, and am so glad I had the opportunity to try it. I am fairly particular about what I use on my skin, and this sunscreen ticked all my boxes. The consistency lies somewhere between a gel and a lotion, goes on smooth, and feels incredibly light. My skin was hydrated and soft, as if I'd just applied moisturizer. The scent wasn't overwhelming in comparison to many sunscreen products out there, and I would feel comfortable using this on both my face and body. Although I'm uncertain the exact charge for the product, since this is Neutrogena, you can bet it won't be a ridiculous cost, so I'd say you're getting great value. Highly suggest giving it a try, I've already recommended to a few friends since I started using it.

    Awesome Sunscreen!

    This sunscreen is so light-weight and non-greasy feeling. This is the only sunscreen that actually doesn't feel greasy, it actually feels really nice! I never used sunscreen on my face because I felt gross, but I will start using this!! It feels more like a moisturizer! The price is really good considering how much I love it! I also haven't got burnt yet, so it obviously works! I can't say anything about how it smells because I have no sense of smell. I got this free through ChickAdvisor.

    I forgot to mention that makeup sat well on top of this product, and it didn't make me break out! I'm just too excited about this stuff!

    BEST SUNSCREEN I've ever tried

    Note: I received this product free to review from the Chick Advisor Product Review Club.

    I am an avid user of sunscreen and I have purchased both high-end and low-end brands in search of the best "feeling" sunscreen. I am not big on sunscreens that feel like a chalky, sticky layer on the skin, and unfortunately, the higher SPF, the heavier the feel. This sunscreen is a total game-changer. This sunscreen feels like a gel and a lotion combined and doesn't leave any heavy residue on the skin. I would compare the feeling to when you apply aloe vera lotion, slightly sticky but absorbs within a few minutes.

    I applied this to my face multiple times since receiving it and did not find it had any adverse effects on my skin - no new breakouts, and no stinging in my eyes (major plus).

    I also applied it to my body and found that it was fairly easy to spread and did a good job preventing a burn. For the price, I wish the size was bigger, as I would need to buy one of these pretty frequently if I used it on my whole body, and at 20.00 a bottle, that is fairly pricey. I will definitely re-purchase this for use on my face, since I have never found something as good with a high SPF that doesn't bother my face (I was loyal to aveeno spf 30 for face, but I have seen the light) and doesn't cause my makeup to slide right off an hour or two later. I do not think I would switch to this product for body use, as the price is not as good other sunscreens that come in larger packages (My go-to for body is Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration).

    I liked the packaging, you will never be able to squirt out too much product at once, as the nozzle is concentrated and small, and the product is a medium viscosity, so it doesn't run out or get clogged and then spurt out all at once.

    Overall, I loved the product and will most-definitely re-purchase as it has replaced my favorite sunscreen for my face (which is a huge-win for me), but will continue to use more value-priced brands for my body.

    Non-Greasy Sunscreen

    I received this for free from ChickAdvisor's Product Review Club and as such promise to provide an honest review.

    This sunscreen is non-greasy and very hydrating, which is something I absolutely love about it! Usually I find with most sunscreens, they can be very heavy and greasy on the skin. I also like that there isn't a strong or lingering scent. As of now, I am using it on my face and neck area, since I am not exposed to the sun anywhere else. I have not broken out on my face, which is great.
    I am at the point in my life that I am really interested in taking care of my skin. I wasn't one to use sunscreen years ago, but know how important it is to protect against the sun and prevent damage on the skin.

    I am very happy with this product and when I finish this one will definitely repurchase.
    Thank you so much ChickAdvisor and Neutrogena!

    It did cause me some breakouts

    Note: I received this product free to test.

    What I love about this product is, unlike other sunblocks, there are no white streaks! Plus the sent is really nice and it goes on effortlessly. For the past three days, the sun had been out (finally) and the weather warmed up (again, finally), and I spent as much time as I could walking around outside. My skin tends to burn easily, and I don't want it to tan, and this product did an amazing job and keeping me protected.

    My two issues with it are:
    - It claims to be non-greasy, but with my skin, it was mildly greasy and made my face very shiny.
    - I experienced some breakouts, not too many though.

    But honestly, those cons are minor in my eyes if it means my skin doesn't get damaged by the sun.
