    Non greasy sunscreen for oily skin

    I really liked the water gel sunscreen. The scent is noticeable, but did not bother me. I liked the flip top tube packaging, it kept the sunscreen hygienic and fresh, and it made dispensing very easy.

    Although it's a water gel, the texture reminded me of a lotion. I was a bit surprised with the blue tint, but it didn't bother me in the slightest. It was easy to spread and absorbed into my skin nicely without feeling oily. I liked that it was spf 50, and that it contained hyaluronic acid. It moisturised my skin well for the day and I felt that my face was protected from the sun.

    Overall I loved the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen SPF 50. It's a nice non greasy sunscreen with a high SPF for oily skin folks.

    I'm loving it!

    It felt like it took forever to get a properly sunny day to test this sunscreen out, but when the day finally arrived I was so impressed. It costs a little more than I'd normally pay for a sunscreen, but I'm liking it so much I think it's worth a extra money. I love how it doesn't feel greasy at all even after smothering my face with it. It's effective, left my skin actually feeling really nice, and I really love the scent. The scent's just a bit on the strong side, but so pleasant that it's not an issue at all - rather a perk (to me). Even being outside for quite a while I could still catch whiffs of it in the breeze. Definitely impressed with this sunscreen.

    Lightweight sunscreen

    I have used Neutrogena sunscreens in the past and enjoyed them but never chose to repurchase. But I will definitely consider repurchasing this in the future! It's a lightweight, applies easily, and a little goes a long long way.
    I have oily skin so I do find that it leaves me shiny but nothing that powder won't fix. I love how it has both UVA and UVB coverage and is SPF50. The packaging is nice but I would caution that it is very easy to squeeze out more than needed. For coverage of my face and neck I found I only needed a nickel. It does have a sunscreen smell but I don't think it lingered too long on my skin. I will wait and see how this turns out in warmer temperatures and see how reapplication goes!

    Best sunscreen I have tried thus far!

    I received the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen SPF 50 to try for free from Chick Advisor in exchange for my honest reviews. This sunscreen claims to protect and moisturize the skin while keeping your skin hydrated, as well as giving your skin protection from the harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun. It did just that! I applied the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen in the morning after cleansing my face, and it kept my face hydrated for pretty much the whole day! The sunscreen is lightly-scented (not as strong as your typical sunscreen). It is not overpowering in its scent. The texture of the sunscreen is also light-weight. It is not viscous. The sunscreen also absorbs into the skin quickly without leaving any white residue on the skin. This sunscreen is priced at $15.99, but it is definitely worth the money. This is the best sunscreen I have tried thus far, and I will definitely buy it again!

    Sample trial through ChickAdvisor

    I recieved the NEUTROGENA HYDRO BOOST WATER GEL SUNSCREEN SPF 50 for free through ChickAdvisor. I received this sample during the Canadian winter, which does not require much sunscreen as the sun is out a limited amount and it is still cold so going outside isn’t an often occurrence, so I do not know the SPF qualities. The texture is cream-like and blends in quickly with a soft texture left on the skin, the fingers however have a slight starchy or sticky texture left behind after rubbing the product in. The fragrance is of typical sunscreen and is very strong, it also lingers after some time.

    New favorite sunscreen

    I really liked how this product was non greasy and smelt amazing. I used in on my face/neck in the morning before getting ready for work and found that it dried and absorbed quickly into my skin. I would definitely recommend this product even if it's a bit more expensive than other sunscreens.

    One of the best sunscreen

    This non greasy sunscreen quickly became my go to because it doesn’t leave a white residue on skin. I always hated to see white smudge marks, from my fingers, in my car’s interior after applying sunscreen on hands and getting behind the wheels. I don’t have that problem anymore!! Also, this sunscreen provides very effective protection. I used it under the Palm Springs scorching sun and my skin had no sun burns!! It hydrates and protects skin from the sun and does not make my skin look white or transferwhite residue on everything so I love it!!

    Great Sunscreen!

    I received this sunscreen to try for free from ChickAdvisor. I like how this sunscreen feels more like a face moisturizer rather than a sunscreen. It’s lighter than other sunscreens, the cream is thin and light blue and it’s not sticky or as smelly as other sunscreens I have used in the past. It feels refreshing and smooth going on my skin and the fact it has a high SPF of 50 is going to be great to use all summer long. The price I feel is about average to buy this in the store. I will probably buy it again and I will for sure recommend to family and friends!

    This is the product I've been looking for all these years!

    When I was picked to try Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen SPF 50 I was thrilled. I have very fair skin and wear sunscreen all year round. I'd been wanting to move to a higher SPF but everything I'd tried had been so greasy or heavy on my skin.
    When I received this product I was surprised at how light the gel sunscreen was. My skin seemed to just absorb it the moment I put it on. I was able to wear it under my makeup without the usual greasy look and feel of regular sunscreens.
    It has a light fresh scent, which I find very appealing.
    The most amazing thing about this sunscreen to me is that after using it for a week a few people asked me if I'd changed my makeup. They noticed the improvement. Then, the other day I did something I don't think I've done in a decade....I went out shopping without any makeup. Now that I'm able to get the SPF protection without a heavy greasy sunscreen, my skin has cleared up, and it's looking naturally dewy and clean. I love this because I can now go out in the sun and reapply my sunscreen as needed. (In the past I had to find a washroom to remove my makeup, put on more sunscreen, and reapply my makeup.)
    I've recommended this sunscreen to so many people now. It really does what it says it will.
    I hope they never stop making this because it is my new daily sunscreen.

    ok

    we finally have some nice weather so I was able to put this lotion to the test.

    Pro:
    - a little goes a long way
    -Great UV protection
    -No streaks
    -Absorbs well and quickly

    Cons:
    - it is more a lotion than a gel
    - the cream is very liquid
    -left a shiny/greasy finish to my face
    - after application, my fingers felt vert dry and not smooth like they would be if hydrated.
    - needs to be re-apply every 2 hours
    - Smells like hair product

    Overall I would not purchase this product because I find the price to be to expensive for a sunblock that needs to be re-apply this often and for the size of the tube and there are more cons and pros for me.
