Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunblock Review & How To Use

(Last Updated On: March 13, 2017)

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sun block SPF 50+ (PA+++) is a breakthrough in sun protection. Stabilized with Helioplex, it provides superior balanced broad-spectrum protection against skin-ageing UVA and burning UVB rays, and combined it with dry touch technology for an ultra-light, non-shiny finish. This light weight sun block has a light fresh scent and is gentle enough for even sensitive skin. It is the best sunscreen available in the market which fulfills what it claims. Its high SPF 50 catches my eyes at first glance. My tanning is controlled since I started using the sunscreen. I have a combination skin and very few products suits my skin.

Sunscreen has white milky color with semi thick consistency. Its soft and light texture helps in easy glide on the skin. A little massage helps in quick penetration onto the skin. Sunscreen does not feel heavy and there is no greasiness after applying.

How to Use: I have to remove the silver foil seal when using for the first time. I took a pea size cream on my finger tips and dab all over my face. Then I massage with my fingers/palm to evenly spread the sunscreen all over my face. I usually apply 15-30 minutes before sun exposure which gives skin ample time for absorption of sunscreen.

My Experience: Neutrogena sunscreen is the best sunscreen I have encountered till date. The product fulfills what it claims. My face does not feel sticky or oily after applying. Sunscreen does not leave white cast like other products. It has a dewy non-shiny appearance.

  1. I have been using the Lotus gel sunscreen for the longest time now because of my oily skin! But after reading your review, I think I should give this a try. ???

  2. Nicely reviewed. I haven’t tried this. But after reading your review, am tempted to give it a try as it prevents tanning and I get tanned a lot. Thanks for sharing this. Will be useful for the summer 🙂
