Today I am going to review Neutrogena sunblock which I have been using from past 1 month.
I have been using sunscreen religiously irrespective of the weather, place and climatic conditions. I use it generously all over exposed parts like feet, arms and face. I use different sunscreens for the face and body.
For face I prefer Garnier BB cream (if I am going to the office) and if I will be in direct contact of sun I use Lotus SPF 50.This sunscreen which I will be reviewing here is “Neutrogena sport face sunblock SPF 70+ with helioplex”. I picked this up solely because of late I travelled to GOA where I wanted to use sunscreen with high SPF and the waterproof one.

My Experience with Neutrogena Sport Face Sunblock SPF 70+
I would like to say that all the claims about this product are totally true. This sun block does it job, it is Oil free, waterproof, sweat proof, doesn’t break you out and PABA free is the main features of the products. I didn’t know the meaning of PABA, so I googled it up. PABA : para-aminobenzoic acid can cause allergic dermatitis, photosensitivity. This sunscreen has a mild smell which can be handled. I got this tube when I was holidaying in Goa. I would recommend not using it near your eyes as it may redden your eyes or can sting little bit. I cannot comment on its ‘Help block out skin cancer’ claim.

• Oil free
• Waterproof is its main plus point
• Doesn’t break you out.
• High SPF 70+
• Good to use when you are in direct contact of sun for longer period of time.
• Not at all greasy.
• Very good for oily skin beauties.
• The packaging is attractive.
• Less is required
• Good for hand and body
Cons of Neutrogena Sport Face Sunblock SPF 70+
• Slightly highly priced.
• Leave whitish texture on the skin.
• It might sting in the eyes for some people.
• Contain many chemicals.
IMBB rating: 3.5/5
Recommendation: This is not a must have product but can be used occasionally. Good while holidaying or to your swimming classes as it is really waterproof.
Will I buy this again? This will last me long, maybe whole summers as I won’t be using it on a daily basis.
So I will buy another product next season.
Take care gals…
