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!

Feels great and works wonders when outside. Barely noticeable and doesn't oil up. Highly recommended to friends and family. Overall, reasonably priced! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I don’t wear a lot of make up when I go out so I need a sunscreen that does not make my face look white. This sunscreen absorbs very easily and protect my skin against the harmful rays of the sun. But best of all it doesn’t leave my face looking white or greasy. It’s also works well with my current to make up products. Try not to let it get into your eyes though because it does sting my eyes (like all other sunscreens ive tried so far). [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have been using this sunscreen on myself and children for the past month or so and I couldn't be happier as with most sunscreens you should reapply throughout the day if your outside and have been in the water. It has a light blue tint to it and absorbed very quickly and didn't even feel like I had sunscreen on, I'm down to the last quarter of my bottle so a repurchase will be coming in the near future, give Neutrogena Hydro Boost a try today.

I got a chance to try the NEUTROGENA HYDRO BOOST GEL sunscreen through ChickAdvisor, for free in 2018. love this line of products from Neutrogena. The scent is calming and fresh, the lotion feels hydrating and best of all doesn't feel like a typical sunscreen. I love it so much, I am on my third tube. It's often on sale too!

As a makeup artist, I'm always trying to find the perfect skincare routine for myself AND my clients. THIS Hydro Boost sunscreen with hyaluronic acid has been a God send! Not only does it keep my skin protected from the harsh rays of sun, but it is light enough that I can use it as an extra layer of moisture for a flawless makeup application without moving my makeup or making me look streaky from grease. Neutrogena always getting me #NeutrogenaWeekendReady [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
