All of us associate sunscreen with the sun which shines the brightest during summertime. However, even during winters, your skin can suffer from sun damage. Be it summer or winter, safeguarding your skin from harmful rays of the sun is necessary throughout the year. This makes it essential to add a good quality sunscreen to your daily routine. One such product is Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen. It is a product of Neutrogena, which is an American company that offers wide a of products for both, skin well as hair care. Its sunscreens are quite popular and I decided to try one. Here is a review based on my experience of using Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen SPF 50+
The main active ingredient present in Neutrogena’s sunscreen is its patented Helioplex technology. It is a blend of UV fighting ingredients like avobenzone and oxybenzone which makes it a broad-spectrum formulation for UVA and UVB protection.
As reported in a supplement to the journal Skin & Allergy News, experts from Neutrogena have summarized that “Data indicate that sunscreens with Helioplex protect against the damaging effects of UVA exposure while providing a high SPF.” Many dermatologists suggest Neutrogena sunscreen due to its Helioplex technology.
Its packaging is simple, lightweight, sturdy, and hygienic. It comes in a plastic tube with a screw cap. You can easily carry it in your purse while traveling.
My Experience with Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch
I have a tendency to get tanned very fast hence Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch sunscreen was suggested by a friend, last summer. My skin tends to be oily during summers so was worried that the sunscreen might get rubbed off due to sweat. However, the fact that it is sweat resistant and waterproof came as a relief. Its fragrance is not overpowering, it is mild but pleasant. The consistency of this sunscreen is creamy and it gets absorbed easily on the skin. It does not clog pores and leaves a soft matte finish on your skin. It easily spreads all over your skin and does not leave any greasy film.
Since it is lightweight, you can easily wear it under your makeup. There are many products out there that can make your makeup look cakey but Neutrogena sunscreen all you get is a nice matte finish. It has PA+++ which makes it a reliable sunscreen, providing the highest level of skin protection.
Make sure to apply it 15-20 minutes before stepping out in the sun. And use it regularly to get the best results.
