I have dry to normal skin, I got this sunscreen because of the dry touch claim and the fact that it has SPF 50+.

How to use Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+
Apply your Neutrogena sunscreen liberally on all the exposed area 15 ? 20 minutes before stepping out in the sun.
Packaging of Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+
The sunscreen comes in a tube packaging which is travel-friendly and easy to use. You can carry the sunscreen in your bag and use it during the day for touch-ups. The nozzle of the tube dispenses a lot of product as it is wide, so you have to be careful while you use it so that it does not dispense more product. In my opinion, the tube packaging works better than the pump one as you can keep a track of product that you are using.
Fragrance and Texture of Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+
The sunscreen is white cream-based sunscreen that has a medicinal fragrance. The texture is light weight and gets absorbed into the skin easily. It appears to be shinny at first and then mattifies to a dry texture in some time.
My Experience with Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+
I have used this sunscreen on my face and body both. You have to make sure that you don’t use a lot of product otherwise you may feel sticky and a little too oily on your skin.
It does not leave a white cast on your face or body which is good. It has a non-matte texture and has a shinny finish at first which becomes matte after some time in a minute or so.
The fragrance of the sunscreen is not too strong and goes off after some time. It has a dry matte finish on the skin within a minute of applying it, but you have to make sure that you don’t use a lot of product.
Now talking about the effectiveness of the product. I have used this sunscreen literally just once in the morning and been in Delhi’s sun for the complete day. Well! It is not technically the complete day. I mean just out in sun during lunch hours and normal office routine and I did not get tan on my body.
But, talking about my face. My forehead has skin discolouration and gets tanned really easily. This did not keep me 100% tan free but, did a decent job. I have not really reapplied this one. Maybe if you reapply it after 3-4 hours it shows better results.
It does not make your skin sweaty or oily during the day. Although I have dry skin, I have used some sunscreens that would make me sweat a lot in the sun, which is not the case with this one.
The sunscreen is water- resistant and sweat resistant which just adds to its goodness. Also, brownie points for being PAGA and oil free.
This would work well with people with both dry skin and oily skin as well. It does not clog your pores and allows you skin to breathe. This is a good sunscreen for all skin types. Even the people with sensitive skin would enjoy using this one.
I would recommend it to someone who wants to invest in a good sunscreen.
The only sunscreen that I absolutely loved for my face is Vichy. I still had to review it, but it got discontinued in India. I have reviewed the Vichy Ideal Soleil Invisible Mist SPF 50 here.
That is the best sunscreen that I have ever used. Let me know if you know where I could still find it in India.
You don’t need a lot of product for each application so one bottle would last you for a couple of months I would say.
