Effective and suitable for sensitive skin

Finally, I have found close to perfect sunscreen. This sunscreen is truly suitable for those with sensitive skin. I often get a reaction from chemical sunscreens! this one does not give me that. It gives protection AND does not cause a skin reaction. I highly recommend.

Overall I am very happy with this product. I took off one star because this sunscreen definitely leaves me with a white cast. It isn't too bad if I rub it in well and is easily covered by my make up. I am also pretty convinced this is helping improve the quality of my skin, including reducing the severity of my cystic acne.

It’s thick and leaves a white cast. I had to run really hard to apply.

This sunscreen is a great improvement over earlier mineral sunscreens. Despite some reviews to the contrary, it is well absorbed by the skin and doesn't leave a white film. I like that it's fragrance-free and reasonably priced compared to many of the luxury brands. I bought both the face and the regular versions and use them every day Also appreciate not having to use chemical sunscreens which may be hazardous. Thank you Neutrogena!

Leaves a nasty white film

I bought this thinking it would be like other mineral sunscreens I previously used (different brand). However after rubbing it in for a good amount of time, the white film still stays there. I thought it just took some time to get used to but after a week of using and I still notice a heavy film sensation. It also makes my skin noticeably white no matter how much I rub it in. Avoid!!!

Our family uses this on our face. My kids and I all break out to every other kind we’ve tried for faces. This won’t sting when it gets in your eyes. I put it on under makeup in the morning or on top as needed. If you don’t rub it in all the way it will stay a bit white but I don’t mind. We love this, and only wish it came in a larger bottle!

Best facial sunscreen I have found

Really like this sunscreen, it is the first one that I have found that I can actually use everyday without constantly getting a rash (have been using it for close to a year). I am fair skinned and find that it doesn't generally leave me looking too white (unlike a different sunscreen I have that doesn't absorb very well at all, so I end up looking very pasty). I have worn the sunscreen under makeup and haven't had any problems. I love the fact that there is no fragrance (unlike some products that say no fragrance but still have a noticeable odor, I have not noticed any odor with this sunscreen). If you have sensitive skin and/or allergies, I would recommend trying the Sheer Zinc. Really hope they keep making this formula, as the other Neutrogena sunscreens do have a fragrance.

Works but not worth it

The product protects against the sun. It works well as a sun block but I wouldn't recommend this for the face. I'm using mine for my body to "use it up". The product doesn't dry down, it stays sticky and greasy. This product feels and looks like diaper rash cream. I'm pretty darn pale and normally I like the white cast from a mineral sunscreen (it helps hide redness) but the sheer zinc just makes me look almost grey. Doesn't wear well with makeup. A great product idea, I love that there's no fragrance. Unfortunately, its design needs some work because there is nothing "sheer" about it.
