Customer Review

We - as in the entire family - have been using Neutrogena's sunblock spray for at least 3 years and we've been happy with it. We normally use the SPF 45 version at home by the pool and this one at the beach - and it's been good enough in places such as Florida or Mexico. Besides helping us avoid sunburns, and it does, there are a few more reasons that made this product our favorite.

- It's a spray - this makes it easy to apply. I wouldn't call applying sunblock 'fun' but spraying is less of a chore than rubbing it in.
- There's no need to rub it in - yes, we do use a light rub after spraying to even the distribution but it's mostly to avoid wasting it.
- No oily goo on your skin - which partially explains why rubbing it in is not mandatory. This spray is remarkably oil-free.
- Swimming pool friendly (see above) - not much oil in it, which allows our entire family to use the pool with the sunblock.
- No overpowering smell - it does smell a little like 'vacation' but, even if you spray it in a room, the smell goes away rather quickly and while it stays it's not unpleasant.
- Friendly to my skin - I tend to be allergic to things on my skin that contain perfumes but I don't mind Neutrogena's sunblock at all. There is no PABA in this product.
- Water/sweat resistant - it's true.
- Effective for several hours - even after swimming. I use to reapply a little after a second swim but, even though I sometimes forget, I haven't been burned, literally speaking in quite a while.

The one claim the maker makes and I dispute is the 'resists running into eyes'. I don't even understand what 'resists running' means but I would NOT have this applied anywhere near my eyes because if it does run into your eyes it WILL hurt. We are actually using the Neutrogena Healthy Defense Sunblock Stick around the eyes.

It's probably worth noting that this is a Helioplex-based sunblock, which is the main ingredient. I looked it up and it turns out it's formulated to provide UVA/UVB skin protection and it contains Avobenzone (for protection) and Oxybenzone (to help make it stay effective longer).
