    Non greasy!

    I was pleasantly surprised with this one! It went on and didn’t leave me feeling greasey or worried my clothes would get residue on them. The smell of this sunscreen is super light and fresh. It didn’t leave me feeling like I needed a shower at the end of the day and really appreciated the high spf for protection!

    Great product

    The Neutrogena hydro boost water gel sunscreen with an SPF of 50 worked well for me . It is lightweight , has a nice light scent and it didn’t feel heavy on my skin .

    It was watery but absorbed into my skin after a few mins . I used it without makeup on last week when it was really nice out . I played outside with my niece and I definitely felt protected. My face didn’t burn like it tends to . When I used under my makeup it did feel a little heavier . So I would use this on no makeup days to help protect my skin . I would purchase in the future .

    Non greasy fast absorbing sunscreen

    I loved this sunscreen for the face! I loved how it wasn't greasy at all. It didn't leave white film. It absorbed in and I found it moisturizing so I could use this a day moisturizer and sunscreen combo. Also the smell didn't scream sunscreen which was nice, this one was much subtler.

    Delivers on promises!

    This sunscreen promises to provide moisture without grease and it does just that! It also has a great scent. Yet another plus is the fact that it provides a great deal of sun protection, as it is spf 50. I was luck to get this through chickadvisor, and even though it is on the pricier side for drugstore sunscreens I think I will consider purchasing a tube of my own once my current supply runs out.

    Loved it!

    It was very hydrating and didn't leave my cheeks too oily as I usually have oily cheeks when I wear sunscreen. The smell was fabulous. I love the fact that it contains hylauronic acid which is extremely hydrating.

    Light weight

    I cannot say enough about this product. I am converted. I always am looking for a sunscreen that is lightweight and not greasy, but gives full sun protection. I love this product.

    It was light enough to be layered under my makeup and never pushed through to make my face greasy. I am in love with the consistency it is weightless on my skin.

    Even after hours of wear I did not have a greasy look to my face. It is worth every penny, and is easily found in drug stores. My kind of sun protection.

    A nice light sunscreen but overpriced

    I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. I have oily, dehydrated but acne prone skin so I’m picky about the sunscreen I use on my face. This one was light in texture, watery but not too runny, refreshing and moisturizing. It is easy to spread out and a little goes a long way. I used this exclusively on my face and can say that I did like it. The scent is light and very subtle. The sunscreen was soothing and absorbed pretty quickly but did leave a bit of an oily/ moisturizing film on my face that took a little longer to sink it. It’s not a mattifying sunscreen. It did pill up a bit when layered with my other creams and serums but it wasn’t so bad that I wouldn’t use this again. My makeup also sat nicely on top of this and I didn’t get oilier as the day went like some sunscreens. So far no breakouts either. I’d recommend trying this. It would be nice as a stand alone moisturizer I think. I do think though that it’s a bit expensive for a Neutrogena sunscreen.

    Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen

    I used this sunscreen on both my face and my body, and I prefer to use this on my body. On my face, it took a long time to sink in and I constantly felt like a had a slightly silty/greasy feeling. I don't feel like it was particularly hydrating than any other sunscreen, but then I rely on skincare for hydration and wouldn't expect that from a sunscreen. It layered ok under makeup but was not the most comfortable sunscreen to wear on the face. Despite so, it worked perfectly as a body sunscreen, and I will continue to enjoy it as that! I did not have the issues with using it as a body sunscreen like I did when I used it as a facial sunscreen. I am a bit confused why this is called a water gel sunscreen....it it neither watery or gel like in consistency - it just has a blueish tinge.

    Great For All Year Round

    This is a great product to use under makeup or on it's own. It's also good for all year round because of the SPF protection from the sun. Because its a water gel it doesnt leave you feeling greasy. Also lasts very long while feeling moisturized.

    Can't wait to use it more this summer

    I haven't had much chance to use it so far, but I'm loving it. Excited to use it more as the weather gets nicer!
