Neutrogena Beach Defense SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion Review

Neutrogena Beach Defense SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion

Hi IMBBians,
To get rid of the scorching sun it’s really cool and wonderful to spend some time in water. It’s just not cool but it’s awesome. That’s what I am doing lots now… Beaches, pools and water. But this also comes with our skin exposed to hot sun, tan and other problems. So to counter that we resort to sunscreen and on that line I got Neutrogena’s beach defense especially for Beach and Sun.

My experience with Neutrogena Beach Defense SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion:

Last time I went to a water theme park and came home in a horrible state with bad tan, skin peel off and what not… For one month I suffered from that tan so was in search for a good sunscreen and got this as it said it had double benefit. So when the time came I took it for the next water theme park experience and yes it worked well. Not that I would say I was brilliant but compared to last time this time I had minimal effect of sun. Did not tan too much and had the skin peel off problem only for a day. The packaging of the lotion is good, it comes with a squeeze cap with a bright yellow bottle. The consistency of the cream is thick and it’s nice and quickly absorbing. It’s soft on skin and smells good.

It had to be applied every 80 minutes or every 2 hours. But maybe I dint apply it that very effectively on the said break for it to deliver the best results. The lotion is not oily and dries off quickly. It helps to protect the skin from sun burn and also helps us under water. Good for sensitive skin too.

Pros of Neutrogena Beach Defense SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion:

• Water resistant formula
• Protects skin from sun burn and tanning
• Consistency is creamy and soft
• Absorbs quickly
• It gives double advantage. It’s for Water and Sun


Cons of Neutrogena Beach Defense SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion:

• It has to be applied every 2 hours. Even though it’s normal given that the time we spend in water I could n make it.
• It did not completely help me from getting tanned

IMBB Rating: 4/5

Overall it’s an ok product for me. I will use it and finish it. Neutrogena has many good sunscreen lotions to try so may be try them. It does works well and to an extent protects you from tanning and sun damage and it’s water resistant too. Next time I will try using it every 80 minutes and see what it does.
