I have been using Neutrogena sunscreen from my college days. I have tried many sunscreens in between, but this one is still my favourite especially for summers. When applied on skin, Neutrogena sunscreen provide matte look and get absorbed in skin very quickly without feeling greasy at all. It also does not provide grey look or ashy look.

Neutrogena sunscreen feels really light weight on skin and does not turn greasy while wearing throughout the day. This is actually what I like about this sunscreen. It does not feel heavy on your face even as day paases. Who like to have a greasy oily layer on face in hot days? Without being greasy and oily, Neutrogena sunscreen provides decent sun protection and you will not tan while wearing this sunscreen whenever you are in sun. It is also water resistant and will not get rubbed off simply by water.

While talking about this beautiful Neutrogena sunscreen, I will like to advise to wear sunscreen when you are indoors too. This will provide you proper sun protection everyday. Also take a big drop of sunscreen and apply it liberally on face if you want your sunscreen to work properly. You should also apply liberally on neck, hands and other exposed parts of body whenever you are going outside.

I feels that this sunscreen is really good but it made my face a little dry when used during winters. But nothing that a moisturiser can’t take care of. Also I will like to mention that this is chemical sunscreen and not a physical sunscreen. For me, both type of sunscreens work absolutely fine considering the formula is good.


If you are looking for sunscreen that provides a matte look and does not feel heavy on skin, then absolutely yes. I will recommend Neutrogena sunscreen to both men and women. I think Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen is a good sunscreen for people with sensitive skin too. My skin reacts very easily to any product and this sunscreen did not cause any kind of reaction or breakout on my face. I think this is a very good sunscreen in budget from Neutrogena. If you want a decent sunscreen that provides good sun protection without being greasy, you must surely give it a try.
