Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+

Hello Darlings ,


The Sun is blazing down without any mercy in Delhi and all I want to do is to remain closeted in my home sipping Aam Panna (a tangy cooling summer mango drink ) or a tall glass of Thandai (a sweet,cooling  milk and almond based  drink ).


But work is work ,so one needs to brave the heat and venture out .So the most indispensable on-the-go  friends for me are my umbrella ,cool shades ,a  good sunscreen and a bottle of water .

I bought this sunscreen as I was looking for a sunscreen which could stand swimming in chlorinated water and also suit my skin, that does not cause any break outs .I zeroed in on Neutrogena  Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+

Neutrogena Ultra sheer Dry touch Sunblock SPF 50+

AvailabilityI got it from a Drug store , you can also get it from  online shopping sites like  Flipkart-- here.


What Neutrogena claims- Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry touch sunblock SPF 50+(PA+++) is a breakthrough in sun protection .Stabilized with Helicoplex ,it proved superior balanced broad spectrum protection against skin-aging UVA and burning UVB rays and combines it with Dry touch technology for an ultra- light ,non shiny finish .This lightweight sun-block has a light fresh scent and is gentle enough for even sensitive skin .


Packaging - It comes in two packagings –a 30 ml pack and a 88 ml  pack priced at  Rs 150 and  Rs 499  respectively.
It comes in a white plastic tube with a blue twist-out cap .The cap secures well to avoid any spillage .


Ingredients---can be seen in the picture below 

The Plastic tube of the Sunblock 

·      Directions for use—Apply liberally on body 15 - 30 minutes before sun exposures.Re-apply frequently to maintain protection ,especially after sweating , swimming , towel drying or extended  sun exposure .

The Product— It is a thick white cream which is  easy to spread .It has a faint flowery smell 
which I can't quite place . After applying , it feels just a bit greasy maybe because it is sweat proof and waterproof , but it does not give the face that whitish ghostly casts which some other sunscreens give on application  rather it gives my skin a dewy - glowey finish .

Coming to the efficiency , I applied it and after about four hours the skin started looking a bit dull 

probably because of the greasiness .I get sunburned and tanned easily and I could see that this 

sunscreen was definitely helping me with that .

I did not break out (get acne) after usage even though it feels slightly greasy after a few hours .



All blended well and a dewy ,moisturized finish !!!


To summarize , the PROS are

1. Waterproof , sweatproof and resists rub off (as it claims)

2. Non -comedogenic  (won't clog pores )

3.  PABA free 

4.  Pocket friendly packing and price   :)

5. SPF 50+  so no need to apply before 3 hours .

6. Sunblock protects against UVA and UVB both .

7. Dewy finish , no whitish casts on skin .


The CONS

1. My skin does get greasy after 2-3 hours of applying so I cannot say that this is adry touch per se product.It might suit girls with dry or normal  skin more .Not that it causes acne,just that the skin looks oilier  after a few hours of use .


Rating --- 4  / 5   .

So final verdict is that this is an efficient product that is non comedogenic and is transfer resistant,so even if you drip sweat or wipe your face  you still are protected by your suncreen against ageing ,sunburns and dark spots .Good sunscreen if you like to swim .But may not be the best product for oily skin .



Which is your favorite sunscreen ?
