Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sun Block

Was heading to an event last week and just found out that i forgot to put on my sunblock and i didnt bring it out. Headed to a nearby Guardian and get myself a tub of sunblock.

     There were a few reason why i chose this brand although i have never read any review about this product yet. Well the first is because of the soothing color of the tub. It's in light blue with white, looking very comfy and nice. : P Next is because of the word "dry touch". I always hate sunblock that gave sticky feeling, or once that makes me feel powdery. And the third reason if of course, the price. Tag at RM29++ is definitely cheaper than sunplay sunblock and any other sunblock that's with SPF 50+ and waterproof.

    Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ is a breakthrough in sun protection. Stabilized with Heliopex, it provides 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 sunblock has a light fresh scent and is gentle enough for even sensitive skin. So this's what written on the back of the tub itself.  Oh yeah, it's water proof, sweatproof, resists rub-off, non comedogenic, oil free and PABA free.  The texture of this sunblock is rather creamy and milky.



                                                                                   


 In my opinion, this is really a great sunblock for face and body, i like the lasting power and also the texture more than my current sunblock. However, there's one thing that stop me from using it completely. It's the scent. Im really choosy when comes to scent or smell as i can get really sensitive at certain smell or scent, no matter it's pleasant or unpleasant. 

    Actually the scent of this sunblock is pretty nice and fresh but my choose nose make me feel like fainting after applying it. It smells like a a creamy and milky lotion with a hint of jasmine and a sweet smell that i couldn't describe, er something like baby lotion but not so... Lol.. I apply it on my body on the first day and i still can tolerate with the scent and i tried to apply it on my face the second day, and i have nausea the whole day. However, this is solely because of my sensitivity problem, nothing to do with the sunblock and it's really a recommended sunblock.


Tada.. looks like nothing on my hand.. not shiny and not stain.


         Other than that, im very satisfied with this sunblock. It really delivers what is says. Dry touch, water proof and blah blah blah. The most important thing is it's non comedogenic, which means it's safe for our face and do not clog pores. It's moisturizing and my skin doesn't peel after i spent the whole day under the sun.
