The Lightest Sunscreen You’ll Ever Use – Neutrogena UltraSheer Water-Light Sunscreen


Uncategorized / Thursday, May 31st, 2012

I’m sure there are many of you out there with the same dilemma as me. You want to wear sunscreen everyday to protect your skin but can’t find anything that doesn’t feel heavy, greasy or leave that awful white cast. I’ve gone through too many sunscreen formulations to count on the quest to find something that will intensely protect but feel light as air on the skin. Luckily the best I’ve found is inexpensive, has a high SPF and is readily available to nearly everyone! It’s Neutrogena UltraSheer Water-Light Daily Face Sunscreen SPF 60. 

Most sunscreens come in a thick base that is not beneficial for anyone with oily or breakout prone skin, leaving most of us forgoing the protection to keep our skin looking blemish free and matte. Thanks to this new formulation you no longer have to choose between sun protection and matte, blemish free skin!

Neutrogena isn’t lying when they say this sunscreen is “Water-Light”! It has the consistency of just that, water, and blends effortlessly into skin without leaving any sort of white residue or greasy feel.

As you can see with just a swipe of the finger, this sunscreen is already absorbing into my skin. This is by far the most happiest I’ve ever been about a sunscreen! Even moisturizers containing sunscreen can feel too thick and greasy and cause my makeup to slip and slide off my face. This sunscreen comes in both SPF 30 and SPF 60. I chose the 60 because I don’t reapply throughout the day if I’m wearing makeup and the higher SPF will keep me protected longer. Plus, unlike most sunscreens that become thicker, more white and chalky with raising SPF – this one doesn’t!

This sunscreen also makes a great base for makeup because it dries to a matte, smooth finish. If you’re struggling with daily face sunscreen this is THE one to try!
