Breaking me out?
I started using this sunscreen, and I absolutely loved the smell. I usually hate the smell of SPF, but this one actually smelled lovely. When I slathered it on, it turned my face blue. I looked like a ghost, which is what SPF does so I shouldn't be complaining. I figured I could deal with the extra blending. The problem that I had with this SPF was that it starting breaking me out. Badly. I ended up with huge problem areas, and I didn't know what to do. I started using a different SPF for sensitive skin, but this product did leave me with a few scars.
Watch out, this sunscreen left white streaks on my leather car seats that I haven't been able to remove. I think it's the mattifying ingredient (what makes the formula feel powdery on your skin) that left the streaks.

With this light weight SPF, we can wear it knowing that it will last longer because of the SPF, and feel like we are barely wearing anything. Tip: always reapply when getting out of the water. Just because you have a higher SPF, doesn't mean you don't need to reapply. Always wear Sunblock even though you are not going to the beach. Sun damage is caused by cumalitive exposer.
Great finish !
I'd have to say that this is the best sunscreen I've ever used . I only use it on my face and it feels great . I'm most impressed by the finish it leaves . It does just as it says on the bottle . It leaves my face feeling non-sticky or greasy . It also leaves a very soft feel on my face as well which is a plus as well . I put this on everyday , especially if I'm going out (shopping , pool , etc .) Oh and its WATERPROOF ! So it doesn't come off when I sweat !! Its a really good product and I def recommend it !

HG Sunscreen for My Combo-Oily Skin
I used to never wear sunscreen on my face because I always had base makeup with SPF in it. But this was an issue when I would go to the beach without makeup, especially because I have oily skin and did not enjoy slathering equally oily sunscreen on my face. I needed a sunscreen that I could comfortably wear on my face that wouldn't feel oily. I was recommended this sunscreen by a classmate who used to work as a beauty consultant for a prestige cosmetic brand. This was the first sunscreen I used that had a matte finish and didn't feel greasy on my already oily face. I'm not sure about its lasting power, since it disappears into my skin and I can't tell later on. Sometimes I get a feeling that I may have sweated it off. But I don't mind reapplying it after a few hours because it feels so comfortable. It also works as a decent makeup primer for base makeup that doesn't have SPF. I have already gone through my second tube of this, and I have used Target's/Up & Up's generic of this product too and it works just as well, though there may be more oil/cream separation over time than in Neutrogena's. The Neutrogena one is definitely my go-to for facial sunscreen because it doesn't feel heavy at all, and it's priced fairly compared to other facial sunscreens like those from Clinique. I owe my classmate for her advice!
I have combination skin so any heavy products could break me out and make my skin oily. Sunblock is important so I had to find one that fit well to my skin needs. I tried many after bumping into this one and I have to say I have never purchased any other sunblock again. It doesn't feel heavy or greasy on my skin. It doesn't have and odor that could be bothersome and what I love the most is that it comes in different levels of spf. The packaging is also perfect to carry around in your purse for when you need to reapply. I recommend you try it. The price varies from store to store.
