Neutrogena's Beach Defense Is The Best Sunscreen For A Day In The Sun

As soon as the thermometer hits 85, I only want to be at the beach. It’s my happy place. But year after year, I’ve struggled to find the perfect sunscreen. Sure, I have tons that protect my family and me from sunburns, but they also leave an insane white residue that’s impossible to wash off. And good beach day pictures? Forget about it.

And then I tried Neutrogena’s Beach Defense sunscreen. Game changer! I should’ve known that Neutrogena would be the brand to finally get it right. This sunscreen is the. best.

Yesterday was my first beach day of the summer and Beach Defense didn’t let me down. As soon as I squeezed some onto my hand, I knew it was going to be good. The formula is unlike any other sunscreen I’ve tried. Rather than being impossible to rub into your skin, this sunscreen goes on smooth, absorbs fast and leaves no white residue. I honestly couldn’t believe my eyes. Even better, this sunscreen is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes and oil free. I applied a healthy dose to my face and it didn’t leave my skin greasy at all.

The best part of all, though? We were at the beach for over 4 hours, reapplied Beach Defense throughout the day and no sunburns! Take my word for it: you need this sunscreen before your next beach trip.
