Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen

I've been wanting to try Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Sunscreen for a while now so was delighted when I received it in my Primped VIP package.

Neutrogena says: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen Lotion is a breakthrough in sun protection. Stabilised with Helioplex technology, it provides balanced broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection against skin aging UVA and burning UVB rays and combines it with Dry Touch technology for a lightweight, non-shiny finish.

This sunscreen is designed for the body, they have two versions for the face, one is for oily skin and the other is hydrating. Whilst it's meant for the body, I've been using it on my face with no problems.

This truly is a Dry Touch Sunscreen. When I put it on it's weightless and I don't feel like I'm wearing anything at all. It sinks in quickly and once it has sunk in it's not at all oily or greasy, it's undetectable. I use this over the top of my moisturiser and under foundation. I've tried using it instead of moisturiser but it's not at all moisturising so I need to wear a moisturiser underneath it. For people with oily skin this would probably be fine to use in place of moisturiser.

Dry Touch Sunscreen is a SPF 30+ plus sunscreen lotion that is water resistant for four hours. It's oil free, PABA free and non comedogenic. I've been testing this out on myself and Mr GQ with great success. Mr GQ usually gets pimples when he wears sunscreen and he hasn't had any problems with this one.

I've found that this also works well as a primer. When used under make-up smooths out my foundation and helps it last longer.

Would I buy this? Definitely, it's now become a permanent fixture in our bathroom, although I have to buy two at a time because Mr GQ keeps on taking it to work.


  1. GlossQueen, I just bought some of that sunscreen for my other half, who is going to Nepal to trek around mountains for three weeks. He wanted a non-greasy, not too expensive sunscreen, and this was the best one I found. It's a nice balance between the cheap, greasy ones and the fancy ones that come in a teeny bottle and cost an arm and a leg.

  2. I've been using the Clinique sunscreen and I find that it is too greasy for me. I heard really good reviews about this sunscreen and will probably try it out. Thanks!
