Final Verdict:

My doctor introduced me to Neutrogena products when it was launched in India.That's how I got my hands on this particular sunscreen.It is a quite a task finding suitable products for oily and acne prone skin.Back then it was even more difficult.I have used both cream and spray on sunblock as well which I will review later.Coming to SPF 50+,its a good sunscreen which does not break me out,water proof plus broad spectrum .Since it is cream base,I thought it was going to leave white cast but it did not.It lives up to most of it claims.I would have really loved if it was Mattifying,then it would have been perfect for people like me.Overall a good sunscreen money can buy!

My Rating:3.75/5
