Greasy, but workable

I adore the entire HydroBoost line so when I heard about this sunscreen, I was so excited. I typically wear SPF 15 in the winter (since my commute is in the dark both ways and my office doesn’t have windows) and SPF 30 in the fall and spring. And every summer, I struggle to find an SPF 50 that I like. So far, this will be the winner of them all! No white cast, no flashback, good price, doesn’t break me out, easily accessible - and it truly feels like effective protection. I feel safe in the sun. But it is SO SO SO GREASY. You need 1 ml of product for your face for effective coverage and protection. Maybe I’m using more than 1 ml, but my face is an oil slick as soon as I apply it. It’s advertized as SPF for face and body, but how greasy it is makes me think it’s just for body. I’ll continue to use it as long as I can work around it. In the morning, I apply a mattifying moisturizer, wait 10 minutes for that to absorb, apply this, wait 15 minutes for it to absorb, then I apply a mattifying primer. With these steps, the finish is great, and it lasts all day!

It is very as light as water and feels freash. Great for 8 hour hydrating while also protecting the skin against sun. It also has Hyaluronic Acid which plums skin.

As with other neutrogena sunscreens, this product does not disappoint! It's lightweight, easy to apply, not sticky, blends quickly into your skin and gives excellent sunscreen coverage. I used this all over my face and body throughout the summer. The gel is very cooling and makes reapplying a breeze. A 10 out of 10. I have already purchased more as it's the perfect sunscreen.

I got this product for free. I took this sunscreen with us to Croatia (BRAC Island) this summer. It worked wonders if I put it on before going out. Absorbed quickly no scent did its job. Husband used it every day too with no hesitation. Left it out on washroom counter. However, I also took this product to the beach in a heat wave. Since it is water based and with the scorching heat it became a liquid and I mean a liquid that went everywhere didn't absorb fast enough. So to sum up put it on before going out in the sun and get a cream sunscreen for the beach in really hot weather. Lets just say husband was not at all impressed the day it was a liquid sunscreen day.

I'm a huge fan of Neutrogena Hydro Boost products and found this sunscreen absolutely fantastic. Super light, absorbs quickly and has a great scent. I've put it on before spending 3 hours at the beach and no sun burn at all. Also bought a sunscreen to keep in car in case I forget to put it on. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

This sunscreen is one of my favourites. It has a nice light scent. It’s non greasy and is soaks up in your skin. I apply this in the morning and it has great spf protection. I love this stuff. Never going back to life greasy sunscreen again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I liked the product, but bought it because they said that it was very dry on the skin, and it did not work with me, it leaves the skin shiny and not matte [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

My kids in particular have an aversion to stickiness when it comes to sunscreen applications. When I learned about the neutrogena hydroboost sun screen I was quick to give it a try! Boy were we impressed and happy with our purchase. We have been using it all summer and there is no going back at this point. It goes on the skin nicely with even application, allows for swimming with no burning and the touch of your skin after application is nearly dry- as though you didn’t put anything on at all! Exactly what we were seeking. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
