    Oh, how happy I was when I found this product a few years ago. Pricey, perhaps, but SO worth it. High SPF, non-greasy, UVA and UVB blocking, what wasn't there to love? My entire family of fair redheads depended on it for year-round protection.

    This year, though, things were different. I eagerly stocked up on eight bottles of the SPF 45 before the start of the sunny season -- in previous years we used SPF 85 or 100 but I had faith in the claims that anything over SPF 30 was of negligible benefit -- and slathered it on the first time I was in the sun for an extended period. Even with wearing long sleeves and a wide-brimmed sun hat I ended up with what (I thought) was a painful burn all over my face and neck. It took a couple of weeks to clear and often resembled a rash, with raised, red bumps that itched like nobody's business. I didn't make the connection until the next time I used it and had the same result within hours. I don't wear makeup and I don't use cleansers on my face; the only moisturizer I use is specifically for sensitive skin and I've been using for a long time with no issue.

    After doing some research I discovered that what I have is a photoallergic reaction to this sunblock, which means the sunblock itself doesn't cause a reaction, but once it comes into exposure with sunlight it does. Which completely nullifies the point of sunblock in the first place. I also read that Neutrogena had changed its formula and the older "blue label" bottles were different than the new "black label" ones - checking a leftover bottle from last year with the new ones from this year proved that the formula does appear significantly different, with this year's sunblock containing a number of new complicated chemical names I can't pronounce.

    I've used this strength and other SPFs from Neutrogena with great results. As for another reviewer's caution, this is from the American Academy of Dermatology' web site:

    1. What is oxybenzone and how is it used in sunscreen and personal care products?
    Oxybenzone (also known as benzophenone-3 or BP-3) is one of 16 sunscreen active ingredients (compounds that absorb, scatter, or reflect ultraviolet (UV) radiation) regulated as over-the-counter (OTC) drugs by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).1 Oxybenzone provides broad-spectrum protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays. It was approved by the FDA in 1978 and is one of the oldest active ingredients in use today.

    The FDA has approved the use of oxybenzone in sunscreen in concentrations of up to 6 percent, which is less than what is allowed in both Europe and Australia (10 percent).2 Oxybenzone also is used to protect cosmetics and other personal care products from deterioration by UV exposure.

    2. I've heard oxybenzone called a hormone disruptor. What does this mean and are there any data to support this?
    Concerns have been raised that oxybenzone may be capable of altering/disrupting normal hormonal (endocrine) balance. Specifically, oxybenzone is suspected of having estrogenic activity, which is the ability to exhibit properties similar to the hormone estrogen.

    There have been some published observations using in vitro (test tube) cell lines, as well as studies in rats fed oxybenzone, and in fish, where oxybenzone was added to the water, which have indicated oxybenzone or its byproducts can demonstrate some estrogenic activity.4-9 However, the observed estrogenic effects of oxybenzone often are considerably weaker when compared to the estrogen (estradiol) used in these experiments.

    Definitely one of my favorite sunscreens. It is a creamy consistency, but absorbs to a matte finish (the "dry touch" the bottle says). There is some lotion-y feel on your skin, just less than other lotions. If you are really oily or hate the lotion-feel, you would probably prefer a gel sunscreen. It does a great job protecting your skin, since the sunscreens are stabilized and are broad spectrum. This is mostly a chemical sunscreen (as opposed to a physical sunblock, which are made of finely ground metals such as zinc or titanium), so be careful if you are have more sensitive skin or sunscreen allergies. Neutrogena does make a physical sunblock too called Neutrogena Sensitive Skin (look for the words "with PureScreen", which is Neutrogena's code for contains only titanium or zinc) if you need a non-chemical one. They have a spray version, which is nice too. We use the lotion for initial application, and then bring the sprays for convenient re-application. This works well since sprays give you much less dense skin coverage (so aren't the best only protection), but no one is as likely to reapply lotion every 2 hours (as you're supposed to) as you are to just spray your arms, legs, and chest. Bring a sunscreen stick for reapplying to the face too. :)

    I have to wear sunscreen every day and this it by far the best that I have tried.
    The sunscreens that I have tried before leave either a white mask or a super greasy face. This product makes my skin look smooth and without grease! looove it!
