Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Dry-Touch Sunscreen

Average Rating
  • Description
Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Dry-Touch is a staple sunscreen on the market. It's a powerful little guy at SPF 50 with broad-spectrum protection. The tube is small enough so that it's conveniently transportable for wherever you go, and applying the cream to the body and face is the most methodically accurate way to assure your skin is evenly protected. The product holds up to its claims: it's 80-minute water and sweat resistant, non-comedogenic (it won't clog your pores), and great for sensitive and acne-prone skin. It even bears the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance and an EWG rating of 1 (that's the highest possible rating!) to back it up. It's the zinc oxide that gives this sunscreen its broad-spectrum strength and skin-soothing properties. No dyes, parabens, or chemicals means this product is fragrance-free.

After spending time reading through user testimonials, it's clear that Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Dry-Touch Sunscreen is widely considered the "holy grail" of sunscreens, a go-to. Because Neutrogena Sheer Zinc is hypoallergenic, chemical and oil-free, many customers claim that it actually soothes their irritated skin. Beyond that, Sheer Zinc won't melt into your eyes. It locks in and stays put. All that goodness for a fair price, too!

But the punch of this sunscreen may be a bit too strong for everyday use. A significant number of users reported that Neutrogena Sheer Zinc doesn't get along well with makeup. The cream applies thickly on the skin and takes a while to dry down; and even when it finally does, users are frequently unimpressed by the greasy, shiny look that's left. And like many sunscreens, it can remain visible if the formula isn't initially evenly spread. Most of these issues, however, are avoidable if the product is properly rubbed in.

    Eius munere cum no. Alia ridens corpora ea his. Sed etiam ignota eu. Vidisse legendos pro ad, numquam voluptatibus per ut, his quot prompta ad. Ius malis movet ea. Altera dissentiunt ut pro, mundi ignota ad sed.

    Qui an veri illum incorrupte. Cu has assum laboramus gloriatur, mea ea meis ferri definitionem, quod percipit evertitur ad qui. Altera omittam moderatius id vis, at vix quod bonorum dolorum. Ei pro graecis reformidans, nisl percipitur ullamcorper vis eu.
