I am writing this review after a really long time that it feels like my first review here.. And I immensely missed IMBB and reading all the amazing reviews here! I am totally loving all the summer product reviews and DIYs. Summer is almost here in California and here’s my first summer review after the so called sabbatical 😛

My take on Neutrogena Age Shield Face Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 70
Without much ado, let me tell you that I am in Loooovveeee with this sunscreen ever since i got it ! Neutrogena is one brand that never has disappointed us with their sunscreen range and Age shield is no different. My skin is perpetually dry during all seasons, summers are no exception. Though my T-zone tends to get a little oily in summers, the other parts of my face still remains dry. More than just protecting the skin I always look for stuff that also adequately moisturize my skin because I don’t like layering up too many products and then feel uncomfortable throughout the day waiting to take it off. So when Ifinally found this, I was relieved!
Neutrogena Age Shield Face Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 70 does everything it claims! It comes in the standard neutrogena sunscreen packaging and all you need is a pea sized amount of it for the face and neck. Let me list out the pros and cons of this to give you a clearer picture.
Pros of Neutrogena Age Shield Face Lotion SPF 70
Cream like texture. I have dry skin and i find this enough moisturizing. I also apply this on my elbows and other dry areas and they behave well for the rest of the day.
Very little amount needed
Goes very well under my make up
Sweat proof. Waterproof. Totally!
Light weight formula, Applies smoothly on the skin.
No white cast after application.
Does not make my face shiny for a couple of hours.
Very light fragrance that is not bothersome.( Few sunscreens have fragrance that give me headaches!) But the fragrance doesnt stay on long 🙂
Cons of Neutrogena Age Shield Face Lotion SPF 70
- Since I have dry skin, excessive rubbing of this causes the cream to peel off. Need to be careful with that else it would be a herculean task to remove those, especially if you are in a hurry!
- For oily skin beauties, it might make their skin shiny pretty quick.
But apart from this nothing really! I love this one!! 🙂
Though this is definitely a good product I find all the Neutrogena Sunscreens to be the same.. this one is no different from the others. But if you would want to try some thing new and still be sure about not breaking out and protecting in the sun. give this one a sure try. I am sure you will not be disappointed.
Bottom Line: I would repurchase and definitely recommend this one!Rating: 4.8 / 5
