Finally! A Sunscreen I Love to Wear!!

I hate wearing sunscreen on my face. I hate the greasy, slick feeling and the shine you have all day. I hate the breakouts that occur.
However, after finding and using the "Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face Liquid-Lotion SPF 50+" that's matte-look daily for 16 days while away on the Gold Coast recently I now LOVE wearing sunscreen on my face! Even my hubby will wear this, which is an absolute miracle.
Not once have I had a breakout from using this product. Not once have I had to wipe a greasy sheen from my nose or chin. Not once has it mucked up my makeup application, which, by the way, goes on beautifully after applying this suncream. And, most importantly, not once has my face been sunburnt!! Very high protection!
This is a brilliant, break-through product that I personally rave about to anyone who asks me if I know of a good sunscreen.
Another win for Neutrogena in my books!

Ideal for

Anyone and everyone, particularly people who really hate wearing sunscreen!

Favourite Sunscreen!

This lotion is perfect for everyday use. The formula is lightweight, non greasy, a real winner. I don't get a white cast from using it, as I have with other brands. It is a thrifty buy that I will continue to repurchase!

Favourite Sunscreen and would repurchase (lotion)

This sunscreen is exactly what it claims to be. It feels sheer and comfortable on the face and doesn't take long to set in. It's great to use underneath makeup as it's so light and it doesn't feel like I'm wearing too many products. It leaves a slight shine but it's much more reduced than most other sunscreens. It worked pretty well on my sensitive skin and didn't leave my face looking super white as some other spf 50+ sunscreens do. Highly recommend and would repurchase.

The best sunscreen

I'v always struggled to find a good sunscreen with high SPF and matte finish. In summers my skin is very sweaty and oily. My ideal sunscreen has to light textured with matte finish. I was recommended the Neutogena dry touch sunscreen by my pharmacist and its by far the best sunscreen I'v used . It absorbs well and relatively quick. Its not perfect though as it's still not matte enough for me but dabbing some powder after using it works well. It's SPF is another thing I like about this as I go in the sun a lot. Overall its a very good sunscreen.

Amazing everyday sunscreen

I have used this sunscreen everyday on my face for the past 8 months and am very impressed. I have not had any increase in freckles, however unfortunately due to the effectiveness of the product my face is a lot lighter than my neck! Because of this I recommend using it on your neck and shoulders as well.
The sunscreen dries to a gorgeous dewy finish on me and works very well under makeup. I never notice it at all. I definitely recommend this product!


If used on face wear on neck + shoulders as well to prevent dramatic colour contrast

Ideal for

Dry/Combination skin and easily tanned skin

Great Sun Protection

I enjoyed the high SPF which reduced how often I had to reapply. It feels very nice and non-greasy which I love. I like that it doesn't leave a white cast however it does feel a little heavy but for me it's not such a big deal.

Light and easy

I tried this in a small tube and loved it. it was light enough to wear without the heavy feel of sunscreen, it's great to wear under make up or on top. I definitely felt better knowing I was protected without my face being an oil slick of normal sunscreen!

HG Sunscreen

This sunscreen is fantastic.
Pros -
Sets nicely
No need for powder - non - oily / non - greasy
Does not break me out
Hydrating and skin feels soft
Cheap ($15 at coles, $12 at Chemist Warehouse)

Cons -
You have to blend this sunscreen in really well as it tends to leave white streaks. On tanned people (NC43) it tends to leave a white cast.

Easily avalible at most stores - I get mine from Coles and Chemist Warehouse. Packaging is amazing and easy to use. Has a high SPF and does a great job at protecting the skin.

I have dry blemish prone skin so have preference for light, oil free, non greasy face sunscreens. I thought I would try this when it was released as SPF 50+ (as my existing sunscreen is a lower SPF), however would not use it daily. I always wear sunscreen on my face, however prefer milks or oil free options. Although this is supposed to be ultra sheer and dry touch I still thought it felt thick. I only use it if Im going to be in direct sun exposure, however prefer my milk - oil free option for incidental sun exposure.

Great stuff!

I really enjoyed using this sunscreen, unlike many other sunscreens I have tried, this doesn't leave my face feeling unpleasant and greasy.

The product is light weight and absorbs into the skin quickly, it dries to a semi matte finish which is great if you plan on wearing makeup over the top of it. The packaging is sturdy and compact and best and importantly of all you wont get sunburnt. Great stuff!
