Product Description

Size: Pack of 2 | Style Name: SPF 55

Product Description

Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 55 is a revolutionary, dermatologist-tested formula that contains Helioplex technology, the latest breakthrough in UV protection. Helioplex delivers unbeatable UVA protection. It works better to help prevent damaging UVA rays from penetrating deep under skin's surface. Dry-Touch technology absorbs excess sunscreen oils, leaving a clean, lightweight, non-shiny finish. Serious sun protection never felt this light on your skin. This product features Helioplex, a breadth of stabilized sunscreen technologies that delivers superior protection from the sun.

From the Manufacturer

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 55 combines Neutrogena’s coveted Dry Touch technology, which feels powder soft on skin, plus breakthrough, patented Helioplex technology that provides breakthrough lasting UVA/UVB sun protection.

When it comes to the sun’s damaging rays, it’s the UVA rays that go deeper into skin to damage cells and wreck free-radical havoc. Neutrogena’s breakthrough, patented Helioplex technology blocks more UVA rays than the leading sunscreens available in the U.S. today.



The ultimate in sun protection.
A distinctive blend of superior skincare aesthetics and cutting-edge sun protection technology, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 55 gives you the best of both worlds in one elegant formulation. Neutrogena’s well-known Dry Touch technology utilizes micronized silica powder to absorb excess sunscreen oils, so it leaves your skin feeling incredibly soft and--never greasy or shiny. What’s more, it’s non-comedogenic, waterproof, and sweat-proof, so it won’t clog pores and resists stinging your eyes.

Dermatologists love to recommend Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunblock because it can help get higher compliance from their patients, due to the formula’s beautiful aesthetics. This may well be one of the many reasons that Neutrogena is the number-one dermatologist-recommended suncare brand.

Benefits:

  • Ultra-Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 55 gives you the best of both worlds: Helioplex, the strongest and most stable UVA sun protection, and Neutrogena’s Dry Touch technology, which provides superior skincare aesthetics in one lightweight lotion
  • Patented Helioplex, which contains stabilized Avobenzone, blocks more of the sun’s UVA rays than other leading sun protection products in the U.S.
  • Breakthrough Dry-Touch technology and silicone-based formula instantly absorb extra sunscreen oils, leaving skin looking and feeling extra-light and fresh, never shiny or greasy
  • Waterproof, sweat-proof, and resists running into eyes
  • Non-comedogenic, good for sensitive skin

Style Name: SPF 85Size: Pack of 2 Verified Purchase
I have been using Neutrogena skincare for a couple of years now, and I've used the SPF 45, 55, and 70 sunblock, in addition to this one, on my face. I'm using exfoliating lotions, and have dark, sensitive skin that scars easily, so sunscreen is a must for me. This sunblock goes on much more sheer than the SPF 70 product from this line. It doesn't leave a pasty cast on my skin, and it doesn't sting or burn, even when it is close to my eye area. I highly recommend this item for those who need a high SPF.

I have used this product for 2 months now and mostly for golfing and bicycling. Both activities exposes a person to plenty of sunshine especially in Southern California.

This product is almost identifical to the SPF 55 version. The SPF 55 version has 10% HOMOSALATE (which is not Helioplex) and the SPF 70 version has 15% HOMOSALATE. That seems to be the only difference according to the "active ingrediants". The Helioplex (AVOBENZONE) remains exactly the same at 3%.

My subjective tests failed to reveal SPF 70 is significantly better than SPF 55. The good news is that the SPF 55 version is an excellent sunscreen, and quite possibly the best in the market. The SPF 70 protects the person just as well, but not by 20%-25% margin as one would reasonably expect with 15 SPF increase.

Few other things of note:

1)There is no such thing as perfect sun protection except for staying out of sunshine all together. Your skin will become noticeably darker even after ample application of this sunscreen, but not by much.

2)You should put on ample amount of sunscreen to get any reasonably good sun protection. Please do not use skimpy amounts unless you want to get a good tan without sunburns.

3)DO NOT APPLY OVER THE EYES AND THE FOREHEAD (put on a cap). If you have been stung in the eyes with sunscreen before you know you would rather avoid the experience.

4)This product is water resistent and does not wear off easily. So I highly recommend this for swimmers and beach bums.

5)The SPF 70 version leaves noticeably more residue than the SPF 55 version. So if you want less residue with almost as good sun protection, I recommend the SPF 55 version. The overall residue is very much acceptable and is not readily visible to the eye.

I have been using the Neutrogena sunscreen products for over 4 years and have been very pleased with them. I think the sunscreen in the spray can is the best spray out there. However, I got this small tube of 70 spf sunscreen with two of the spray cans at Costco and it caused me to have a severe allergic reaction on my face. As I write this my face is so swollen that I can barely see. The nurses at my doctor's office told me that the SPF 70 is too strong and I have not been the only one to come in with this problem. I have used the SPF 45/55 have find it to be a much better product.

My education I'm a biochemist and I was also a physiology teaching fellow in a university. As such, I have a fair amount of knowledge about chemistry, the body, etc. When my dermatologist recommended this sunscreen, he cited some studies about how SPF15-30 in practice washes off or wears off and doesn't offer adequate protection. He recommended at least SPF 50 and specifically this product.

My experience using this sunscreen is that you don't even know you have it on. It doesn't have a detectable smell and it is very sheer. However, this sunscreen stays on, is waterproof and doesn't block your pores. It guards against BOTH UvA and UvB and the Helioplex technology is a hit with dermatologists. I highly recommend this product and think it's totally worth the cost.

I really like this sunscreen. The UVA/UVB protection is so important, and most sunscreens only block UVA. The lotion goes on feeling like a regular greasy sunscreen, but it disappears rapidly into the skin and it truly doesn't feel greasy at all once it dries. I am not sure how or why, but I swear it also evens out my skintone. I do recommend applying a light coat of your regular moisturizer around the eyes first, as I find this sunscreen can sting when put on the delicate skin under the eyes. I made the mistake of slathering it on over my eyelids once, and I wouldn't recommend that you do that. I found when I sweated, the sunblock crept into my eyes. Ouch. So just don't apply it over the eyes and you should be fine. Anyway, great product.

I am currently using Tazorac, a retinoid, which casuses hyper-photosensitivity. My dermatologist gave me a sample of the SPF 55 Ultra Sheer and it has been fantastic! Usually, it seems the higher the SPF, the thicker the lotion (and the more likely it is to leave a white film on your skin). Not this one! It aborbs cleanly and you don't even feel it! My healing blemishes faded and didn't brown or darken and best of all this sunscreen does not cause break outs on my super-sensitive skin.

A few years ago, I tried neutrogena sun block and a rash appeared. It lasted a few days. Recently, I was traveling in Southern California during the summer and needed a small package of sun block to keep with me during the day. The package was the right size and I thought I would give it a try....whoops.

A few hours after I applied it to my face and neck, the burn started. I realized what was going on so I started washing it off with some water. That evening, my face was blistered, red, and felt like I had been pepper-sprayed. The next few days, my rash continued with small blisters and scaly formations all over my neck, ears, and face. My skin felt like a cat's tongue. People stared at my face and wondered how I could possibly screw myself that badly.

WTF! I do not have sensitive skin. I do not have allergies. Whatever is in this product is messed up.
