Honest reviews


even, easy to apply

This stuff sprays very evenly and it’s not messy at all. Just use your hands to rub it in. No white streaks or sticky lotion-y feeling. It’s especially great for spraying on hair if you’re wearing it parted or if you’re losing your hair (I’m guessing on that last one). Nothing worse than a burnt scalp!

Not bad

I won’t repurchase since I found other creams that work better for me. This one is a bit rough for my sensitive skin. (burns slightly immediately after application)

Can reach places that are hard to reach

I bought mist for quick and easy application. However, I found that this sunblock cannot be the only sunblock I use. It useful to spray on the areas I cannot easily reach with my hands, like the back. But I found it unpleasant to use on my face. I did not like the slightly greesy feel, the make-up does apply evenly on top of it. I did not like that I can accidentally get it in my eyes or breath in.In July 2011 Food and Drug administration stated that they are investigating the safety of sunblock mists, especially on use with kids, which can get sun block in their mouth or breath in while the sun block is being applied.I like:1) I can put sun block on the areas I cannot reach by handI don’t like:1) Spray can get into eyes, mouth, be inhaled2) I do not like that it has an odor , I prefer unscented products3) Slightly greasy feel and make-up does not apply evenly on top of itSo overall ‘ok’ rating for this sunblock . It has both positive and negative aspects.Ali Julia review

Best sunscreen so far

This is the best sunscreen I’ve used so far. I’ts light, doesn’t go on white and cakey. I don’t even feel that I have it on like other products. It doesn’t smell bad.It still makes my face shiny, though. What I don’t like is that you have to shake the bottle and it makes a loud sound. Not very handy when you’re up applying it at 5:30 in the morning.

Good sun coverage, but I got a strange taste in my mouth when I use it…

Sun protection was good, but I decided that I did not like particular product because whenever I would wear it on my face, I would somehow get a strange and terrible taste in my mouth…a taste reminiscent of sunscreen, of course. That made me wonder about the chemical composition of this sunscreen. Strangely enough, Neutrogena’s Sport Face sunscreen does not have this effect, so I use that one instead.

Messy and Oily

I really did not like this Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunblock Mist. I have extremely fair skin that is very sensitive so I have to use sunscreen whenever I’m outside for an extended period of time otherwise I will look like an angry lobster. I have used Neutrogena sunscreen in the past and have either been happy or disappointed. This time I was very disappointed. The sunscreen application was very messy. I found the spray to be too wide- it went everywhere but my legs. Additionally, the consistency of the lotion itself was uncomfortable- it was surprisingly oily and did not soak into my skin well at all. It just sort of stayed on the top of my skin and was extremely oily. It came off rather quickly and transferred onto my chair. Not surprisingly, I did get a sunburn. I would not recommend this sunscreen.

Great product, like a primer, but how do I remove it?

Wow, best sun protection product yet Neutrogena! First, this protected me well for several hours working in my yard. Next, this really feels like a cosmetically elegant product, much like a primer, so MU will glide over it. I don’t normally wear primer or foundation, but I’ve used it for special occassions. Using this daily, I can tell I need a special cleanser to remove it, but I’m not sure what to use. Third, it doesn’t feel greasy going on, and it doesn’t leave any shine, but it has slip like a primer–probably a silicone base. Lastly, for anyone with dry skin, make sure you use a moisturizer under it; I got a bit of a dry feeling the first time without moisturizer under it. All this said, I like the product a lot, but I’m not sure how to properly remove it.

Smells nice.

This stuff smells pretty good and it doesn’t leave you with a greasy feeling like other sunblocks do. I like it.
