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!

I had never tried a gel based sunscreen before and now I cant go back! It has a scent, but not like typical sunscreen, which I like, and it absorbs so fast and easy! It's not greasy so I love it for under my makeup and for my little guy!

Amazing for oily dehydrated skin!

This is a dream sunscreen for people who hate wearing sunscreen. As someone with oily acne prone skin that gets dehydrated from using Retin A finding the right SPF has been a project. Most are too greasy or clog my pores or looks terrible under make up. This stuff has been a life saver. It goes on like a gel moisturizer and doesn’t get greasy. It absorbs right away. It does have a light fragrance but I’ve found it doesn’t bother me. Definitely check this out if you’re struggling to find a daily sunscreen for oily skin.

This is my winter day moisturizer with SPF. I just turned 30 and decided to get serious about skincare. As a black woman I never felt like I needed SPF, but decided to start using it because I use a retinoid and other actives that make my skin sun sensitive. This moisturizes and protects the skin in one step and does not leave a white caste. It is super moisturizing, unlike some other sun formulas and does not leave my skin feeling stiff. It also sits well under light foundation and a powder. I highly suggest!

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.
