My first impression when I opened it was the light pleasant smell. The smell was really nice,and light. The texture was very easy to apply, not thick and sticky like some other 30+.
I noticed that it wasn’t shiny on the skin, and I couldn’t tell I was using a sun screen. It left me feeling silky. I would purchase this sunscreen again, I really would, I liked this product a lot.
I would give it full marks 5 out of 5.
Jacqueline – Age:37, Skin Type: Dry Skin
I could not wait to try this sunscreen! The smell is really lovely and the texture is fantastic, I really like this product!
Living in the tropics its really hard to find a sunscreen that isn’t sticky once you have applied it and this product really does live up to its claims. It does dry into the skin quickly removing that ‘ick’ factor and as it does dry quickly it gives me more confidence knowing that the product will work.
I will DEFINATLEY buy it again!!!
Nicky – Age:37 Skin Type:Normal Skin
I thought this is too good to be true – sunscreen is oily!
This feels nice to touch but too smelly for me. This sunscreen is not oily as promised.
I would buy it again, it feels nice on the face not oily at all – amazing! I give it 4 Stars– if they could reduce the smell a touch it would be a 5.
Magdalena – Age:32 Skin Type: Oily Combination Skin
Packaging was very nice and the description at the back was quite informative.
The texture seemed a bit thick but it actually applied quite easily without stretching my skin. It soaked right into the skin and didn’t leave a film that a lot of sunscreens do. I usually get breakouts from heavy moisturizers and creams but my skin responded very well to this one.
I think it may give a better protection than others sunscreens because even after all day in the snow ( I did reapply) I didn’t get any redness on my face. Usually I’d be quite flushed from all sun/snow exposure and with this cream I had just a tiny hint of color on my nose and cheeks.
I will definitely be buying this Sunscreen again!!
I give it 4.5 stars
Half star is missing as I would prefer the packaging to have a pop up lid so one doesn’t need to fiddle with a screw on cap while in the great outdoors.
Leanne – Age:37 Skin Type: Normal Skin
I was impressed with the packaging, the smell & definitely the feel of the product.
The product smelled great & the texture lived up to my expectations. It really does have a dry-touch feel to it.
I found that it was comfortable to wear all day due to the dry-touch factor. There is no sticky feel to this product at all. I am absolutely going to purchase this product & recommend it to friends.
I would definitely give it a 5. The product lives up to its promises.
Lesley – Age:56 Skin Type: Oily Combination Skin
I applied it and waited to see how different it was to any other sunscreen. It had a nice smooth texture and didn’t notice any smell really. It’s not shiny or greasy. No one would even know you had it on. Very nice. I will definitely buy it again. I give it 4 Stars
Lori – Age:32 Skin Type: Normal/Oily Skin
Exceptionally high coverage, easy application, no WHITE face, as with sunscreens that contain zinc. When I put it on, it left my skin (face) feeling incredibly smooth and soft. It was a light smell, and the texture was not sticky, tacky, or difficult to apply. I just literally rubbed it on like a regular moisturizer.
I used this before and during a few good running sessions, and it did not melt into my eyes, or rub off. I also took it when I went SCUBA diving, and I was diligent with reapplying, the way it felt like it absorbed into my face, I almost did not reapply at all. My skin was soft and smooth, like a nice moisturiser was applied, and I did not get any stinging sensation, white chalky face, or awful smell. Nor did I break out at all, and I used it all over my body and face.
If Price would be of no concern, would you purchase this Sunscreen for yourself in the future?
Yes, YES, YES, and for my husband, and when she is older, my daughter. I ADORE this product.
I give it 5 Stars. This will be my new sunscreen. For my face, and for my body. And for my family. You want the best protection for your family, and this is it. We are an outdoors orientated family, SCUBA, surfing, boating, as we live on the coast and take full advantage of it, and I will definitely buy this product when it comes out. And use it year round. I will never use a different sunscreen.
Annie – Age:29, Skin Type: Normal/Combination Skin
When I first saw this sunscreen, I think it has a very nice packaging, 85ml will last for awhile. *Dry Touch*. It’s described as a Dry Touch Lotion, but when I squeezed it out, it’s a creamy texture instead of lotion as described and I thought it was going to be quite thick and greasy on my skin. After I applied it onto my face, the sunscreen soaked in and left my skin feeling so soft and smooth. I love it, really lightweight.
I actually love the smell of it. I think its smell is the same as PERT shampoo which I love and have been using. Beautiful smell!!!
Before trying this product, I have been using a few different brands such as Hamilton, Lancome, Shiseido, Olay (moisturizer with SPF 30+)…
I think Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen Lotion SPF30+ is the best one. It’s great in both texture and fragrance. I have been using this sunscreen for 2 weeks, but so far so good, I don’t have any breakouts.
Comparing to other sunscreens that I have been using, this one comes with a reasonable price, I am more than happy to have it for myself when I finish this trial tube.
I would give this sunscreen 5 stars.
Anna – Age:29, Skin Type: Normal Skin
I liked the colours and feel of the packaging – and the scientific details of the ingredients. Plus it’s a small enough tube to slip into your handbag. I think it basically smelled like any sunscreen – they all have the same distinctive “milky” smell I think. The texture is quite thick, although it’s easily squeezed from the tube. I found it helps to warm the product with your fingers before application so it spreads more easily. Also, I applied a mineral foundation straight after applying the sunscreen without any problems – I like that the sunscreen absorbed quickly without appearing to “sit” on top of the skin or leaving a whitish “cast” to the skin.
The main thing I like about this sunscreen compared to others I have used in the past is the fact that it absorbs so fast and wears well under makeup. I would absolutely buy it again – I think it’s a great product for everyday on the face.
I give it 4 Stars – just because I tested it during winter and I think I would need to see how it goes in summer before giving it a 5/5. I love that it absorbs so quickly and the science behind the active ingredients is interesting. I would definitely purchase this product.
Leila – Age:31, Skin Type: Combination Skin
Light, absorbs into the skin quickly, pleasant smell, makes my skin feel soft!
Packaging is small and compact. Easy to carry around in your handbag.
The sunscreen has a light pleasant fragrance, kind of like baby powder. The texture is very nice for a sunscreen. It’s light and easily absorbed into the skin. Once applied, it leaves your skin feeling soft. It is very different to a normal sunscreen whereby you can feel the cream on your skin. With the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer, it barely feels like you are wearing anything, let alone a sunscreen! It feels very moisturising on the skin!
My skin feels so soft and ultra moisturised after applying the sunscreen. I don’t feel the need to apply another cream on my face if I’m using this sunscreen as it adds moisture as well as protecting my skin from the sun. I will definitely be using this again. At $17.99, what a real bargain! It is a moisturising cream as well as a sunscreen all in one. Where could you find anything better!
Rebecca – Age:31, Skin Type: Combination Skin
I like that it covers UVA and UVB rays and is non-shiny/dry-touch.
It went on quite thick, a little greasier than I expected initially, but seemed to sink in quite nicely. I’m not sure about non-shiny as such though, maybe it is if you have dry skin. A little more heavily scented than I would prefer.
It is lighter than the usual sunscreen I use, and the UVA/UVB is a drawcard. I would purchase it again. 4 Stars
Michelle – Age:38, Skin Type: Sensitive/Dry Skin
It was quite light textured which I liked and I liked the packaging shape and size.
I really liked the texture, it was light and absorbed easily. The scent was nice but not too strong.
I didn’t really notice any benefits from using this as opposed to other sunscreens but I have only had it for a week and it is the middle of winter.
I will definitely be looking out for this one when I need a new one.
Maureen – Age:39, Skin Type: Normal Skin
I’ve always found Neutrogena to be a good brand, so was happy that they had come up with a sun-screen, especially when I say that it was advertised as being dry touch. There’s no smell that I could find. When I first squeezed it out, I was a bit concerned as it seems so thick, almost like zinc cream, that I thought it couldn’t be well absorbed. But it was really easy apply and was absorbed straight away.
Once it had been applied, there was no greasy feel as it seemed to soak right in. This is a terrific bonus. Also, there was no ‘sun cream’ smell left behind. I used it on my face and arms at a BBQ where I was sitting in the sun all day, and didn’t tan at all. Other creams I’ve used in the past have to be reapplied so often to stay effective, but this one doesn’t. I wasn’t able to test the water resistance, as it is not warm enough for a swim yet, but this certainly delivers on everything else promised on the box.
I would buy this again. The only drawback is that because the hole in the tube is so small, you feel like you are applying a lot more than you actually are.
Nicolle – Age: 32, Skin Type:Normal/Combination
What were your first impressions of the Sunscreen?
It was packaged really nicely and very informative with the SPF 30+ in bold. I liked the Skin and Cancer foundation Australia endorsement. The size was also perfect as I keep it in my handbag and it’s not too big and not too small.
The texture was very good, thick enough to get enough on your hand and see what your doing but not too thick so it was hard to rub in. I LOVED the smell. It reminded me of Frangipani or some summer flower smell. I love my creams to smell nice, it also reminds me that I got it on my skin.
Did you notice any benefits from using this Sunscreen as opposed to others you have used in the past?
Yes I definitely noticed that I didn’t get sunburnt while outside, I noticed that there was no white residue left on my skin from the application which I get from other sunscreens. I felt that my skin could breathe too.
Out of five, what star rating would you give this Sunscreen based on your experience with it?
Probably about a 4, only because I would like something a little more creamier, But in saying that I was very happy with the product and I would defiantly buy it and recommend it.
Liked the size and look of the tube. Had heard a lot about Neutrogena being particularly good so was looking forward to using it.
Lovely texture, squeezed easily from the tube and spread easily on my skin. Smell was light and pleasant. I am not quite convinced by the Dry-touch technology, as I found it remained sticky on my skin for quite a while. Eventually though it did soak in, and was also quite good under make-up on my face.
Unfortunately, I hate to say I didn’t find it very effective. I had the ability to test it out up at Hamilton Island for 10 days (in beautiful weather) and found I still burnt on my face, chest and shoulders when I was wearing it.
I wouldn’t purchase it for myself again as unfortunately it doesn’t matter to me how good it feels, it has to work as a sunscreen.
