    I love this product

    I was lucky to try the Neutrogena water gel sunscreen as part of the Chickadvisor Review Clufor free!!!!!! I love how light weight it is and that I can put makeup on over it. It is a little greasy but nowhere near the amount of a regular sunscreen which is amazing.

    Sun protection at it's finest

    Most sun screens make me feel oily and sticky after using them. This one on the other hand didn't! It felt more like a moisturizer than a sun screen and didn't leave that oily sticky feeling behind. I was comfortable while being protected from the sun

    My new go-to sunscreen!

    I received this product for free and LOVE it. It will definitely be my go-to sunscreen this year! It has a great light texture so is perfect for the face as well as body. Unlike some other sunscreens it did not leave my skin feeling greasy and I love that it does not smell like sunscreen!

    Need the sun!

    I havent actually used the product as we still have snow and no sun where I live. I have played with the product on my hand and the light weight texture is fabulous for a face sunscreen. It does not feel or smell like a sunscreen at all. Its nice and refreshing!! Cant wait for summer to come for me to use on a daily basis.

    Would buy again as a good facial moisturizer with strong SPF

    I was lucky to try the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen as part of the Chickadvisor Review Club. I have only used one other facial moisturizer with built in suncreen before on my face. So I was curious on how this sunscreen would feel relative to what I have been using before. The sunscreen felt light when applying it on my face and it did moisturize my face during the day. Another plus is my face didn't have greasy or white marks (this is very important as you don't want your face to look shiny or greasy). So overall, I would recommend it as a good facial moisturizer with a strong SPF to my friends and family.

    Feels more like a moisturizer

    This sunscreen definitely feels more like a moisturizer than a sunscreen, which is great. It absorbed into skin faster than a regular sunscreen and does not feel greasy. When taken off, my face felt very soft like I had been wearing a hydrating moisturizer. I like that it is SPF 50 because I don't use anything with a lower SPF than that. The scent is very subdued; it did not smell like anything specific. This sunscreen is a bit more pricey than other drugstore sunscreens. I would probably stick with this one for my face only.

    The only major downside is that I accidentally got this in my eye (I rubbed my eye and forgot I had it on), as can be easily done when wearing sunscreen, and it kept stining no matter what I did. Rinsing my eye and using a cold compress did not work. My eye was in pain for a good hour or so. I cannot recall sunscreen ever burning that long before. For that reason alone, I would probably not repurchase this because if I had been out at the beach, that would have ruined my day.

    I would totally buy this!

    I got this for free to try out and I actually loved it. I really liked the texture of the formula and the feel of it on my skin. A little difficult to speak on the effectiveness as the UV isn't at its highest right now but I do like Neutrogena products so I think it will be good! I would definitely purchase this again.

    Excellent Sunscreen

    As the weather warms up here in Canada it's such an important part of daily routine to lather ourselves with sunscreen.

    Being waterbased it soaks right into your skin adding a protective layer to fight the harmful rays.

    Nice and light formula glides on smoothly and doesn't feel heavy like your average sunscreen

    Good product

    I received this product free from ChickAdvisor but it doesn’t affect my opinions. I quite liked how this sunscreen was gel instead of the typical white cream that takes forever to absorb. It goes on smoothly and absorbs quickly without leaving a sticky or greasy feel to it like normal creams or spray screens do. I love that is SPF 50 because I burn quite easily so the extra protection is fantastic. We haven’t had many warm sunny days yet where I am but I can’t wait for summer because I will be ready for it with this sun screen

    Amazing water gel sunscreen

    This product comes in a gel form making for an easy and non-messy application. It is water resistant and non oily. It’s also hydrating for your skin so it’s a win-win! This product was sent to me for review purposes but all opinions are my own.
