Back with a sunscreen review, a product must have for everyone in their vanity regardless of age, climate and whether you love wearing makeup or not. Today I shall be reviewing Neutrogena Age Shield Face Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 110. I always trust Neutrogena skin care products and I found their makeup to be worth spending on too. I have used this in past winter and forgot it at mom’s place last time I visited her; so the untidy tube’s credit goes to my nephew :D. Let’s see how this fares on my oily-combination skin.
More than just sunburn protection, Age Shield™ Face Sunscreen Lotion SPF 110 with Helioplex Technology delivers superior anti-aging protection. This sheer formula helps combat sun-induced free-radical damage that can accelerate the signs of aging. Skin conditioners hydrate and replenish skin as the lightweight lotion absorbs quickly for a fresh, non-greasy feel, protecting your face and helping to maintain a youthful appearance every time you wear it. This product features Helioplex, a breadth of stabilized sunscreen technologies that delivers superior protection from the sun.

My Take On Neutrogena Age Shield Face Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 110:
Neutrogena Age Shield Face Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 110 comes in a card-box which I didn’t keep because the Neutrogena Age Shield Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF70 is already reviewed and I wasn’t sure if I will be reviewing it (But thanks to IMBB & Jomol). Inside is a regular soft, white squeezable tube with flip open cap. It is travel friendly but not travel size yet sturdy to carry around and light-weight too.
It is a sun-block lotion. But the consistency is somewhat between a lotion and soft cream. With soft texture, it starts diluting when blended and absorbs within a wink of an eye on skin. You will feel it greasy initially but let it sink into skin pores for a couple of minutes and it will settle to a matte finish. It is totally light-weight on skin without a greasy feel, just a little like you have applied something. It absorbs really fast and definitely, the claims of the brand to hydrate skin are valid.
With a high SPF content of 110, this is the best product for those living in metropolitan cities because the pollution in such places depletes Ozone layer, causing more of UV rays to reach the earth’s surface. It protects skin along with anti-aging effect. As far as I am concerned, I haven’t observed any miraculous vanishing f crow feet or fine lines on my face but it rather might have added to the anti-aging of my regular products. Also, I observe the results as sunscreen and when you are already using a night-cream and some other products, it is difficult to tell who made the clear difference or not.
I have oily-combination skin and this moisturized me well in winters with SPF 110 protection. Now when I use it in summer and humid climate of a coastal area, it fails to control the shine on t-zone after few hours of application. Thus acne prone and highly oily skin might have issues using this in summer. Also, this is an oil-free and Parabens free product.
Let’s sum up:
Pros of Neutrogena Age Shield Face Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 110:
• Soft texture, in between a cream and lotion.
• Absorbs really fast sinking into skin.
• Oil free, fragrance free, Parabens free.
• Hydrating on skin.
• Anti-aging sun screen with SPF 110.
• Non-greasy feel and light weight on skin.
Cons of Neutrogena Age Shield Face Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 110:
• Doesn’t control shine on oily skin in hot & humid weather.
IMBB Rating: 4.75/5
Would I Repurchase & Recommendation of Neutrogena Age Shield Face Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 110?
Definitely, loving it all in all but will keep this as my winter sun screen and stay with Steifel for summers. I definitely recommend it, worth money product.
