I have been using Neutrogena Sunscreen for years and now in my 40s and still pick it up from store like a habit. I use water defense at the beach all the time. Sometimes just 50 spf will do Since Im not fully in the Ocean most of the time.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I In Arizona, not wearing a sunscreen is like terrible because it's so hot here in the summer but I wear sunscreen everyday.It's part of my skin care regimen.I really like the Beach Defense Water + Sun Protection Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 70 Because it's not greasy and it seems the last most of the day. Unlike other sunscreens this one works with my skin really well and I wouldn't go a day without it. I definitely recommend this product to all my friends and family.

The sun protection is so good and the SPF level is so high. It’s an amazing texture and it really absorbs into my skin. The water doesn’t wash off and it doesn’t smell bad like other sunscreen. This is the best.

I bought some Neutrogena Beach Defense sunscreen for working outside in the sun. It works well. Much better then the other products I've tried. It's a little greasy and smells like sunblock but it's better then having a sunburn!

Feels greasy and heavy

I picked this up because I didn’t have spf on me and I was going to the river, I grabbed it because I thought neutrogena might be one of the more trustworthy skincare brands at the drugstore and it has high spf but this sunscreen is terrible, it has a super strong perfume scent and feels really greasy and heavy on the skin, which isn’t uncommon for low end sunscreen but its still uncomfortable and not ideal. I don’t think this would be great for sensitive acne prone skin at all and I wouldn’t ever put this on my face because of the strong scent and likelihood to cause breakouts.

My skin is very sensitive. and I'm very afraid of sunscreens with strong smells. But Neutrogena is a cream that is very suitable for my skin, providing enough sun protection that does not make my skin hot when going to the beach. Its scent is also very pleasant. love. love

This was the go-to sunscreen when I was younger and going to the beach still-still is! It blocks the sun from burning you up but it leaves a hugeeee white cast so for black women like me I would not recommend but it does absorb into your skin.

I use this sun screen on the boat since we stay in the sun most of the summer months.This makes sure we have extra coverage especially on our face and head areas thatvwe may miss with sprays.the extra protection is always a plus and easier to apply on the toddlers.
