One of the best sunscreens I've ever used

I tried multiple sunscreens for the harsh Australian sun and to date this is the only one I can vouch for.
It protects the skin from sunburns.
Has a good Moisturizing effect
Works well in the water too
Would be nice to have a smaller packaging to carry around in one's purse
Does leave a white layer on the face

Ideal for

Australian sunny days

love it, does not grease

I'm very pedantic when it comes to sunscreen, I always op for the SPF 50+ and ones I had tried came out too greasy no matter how much or little I would apply on to my face.
This one does not grease at all and it's great.


Pat it on instead of rubbing because it can flake.

Ideal for

Lots of different skin types.

The best face sunscreen

I have always hated using sunscreen on my face for the fact that it is always greasy, gives me a white sheen under makeup and makes my face too sticky. Now after reading all good reviews about this product, i am so impressed with it. First of all comes with spf 50 so you cannot go wrong with that, it is so light that you dont feel like you have a sunscreen on, is non greasy infact gives a matte look, and I let it settle on my face for a few minutes before applying my bb cream or make up. It did not break my skin, so far i have had no issues of pimples or acne after 3 weeks of use. If you are looking for a good sunscreen then this is the product you should go for.

I have 2 tubes and I won't lie.

Sunscreen and I do not mix well . Too tacky, too greasy and it makes me feel like I need a couple of dips through the Niagara Falls. However, mention matte, dry-touch, and non-greasy and I'm SOLD.

Surprisingly, I much prefer this to their Ultra Sheer face sunscreen, probably because the (mostly)matte finish leaves the skin feeling wonderfully smooth. Dare I say, it works as a pretty good primer for heavy makeup? Although I wouldn't recommend heavy makeup on top of this on humid days ( it feels like my face is sliding off, along with my glasses), it works wonderfully for everyday looks in this tropical QLD weather. My only concern is that when I apply this, I don't find that I need very much to spread all over, however does this mean I'm still getting adequate sun-protection? I'm not sure.

After a few hours of wear, you will definitely need to blot, but then again, whose doesn't?

Value : Price varies depending on location : $12 -$15.


- 50+SPF is goooooooood.
- I'd probably use the spray if you need to sun coverage for your limbs : much more practical.

Ideal for

I'd recommend it for anyone really, especially those with acne pigmentation. An inexpensive and good workhorse of a face sunscreen where most SPF combo products fall short ( I'm looking at you Clinique City Sheer Block >:( ).

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.
