Neutrogena to the Rescue: A Powerful Sunblock That's Gentle on Skin

What: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer, Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 70

Why: My boyfriend insists that I can put any type of sunscreen on my face. While he slathers on the Banana Boat, I recoil in horror, digging through my collection to find the one that won’t make me look like my face has been bitten with fire ants.

However, nine times out of 10, I end up looking like Rudolph, while he emerges unscathed. Despite the fact this irks me to no end, I still refuse to pick up the No-Ad. Instead I tried a different tactic -– using sunscreen from a company that specializes in skin care instead of the Coppertone that promises to be ‘good for faces’.

The Neutrogena Ultra Sheer line with their new Helioplex ingredient is right on target. It absorbs fast and doesn’t leave the sticky residue that I’m used to -– more importantly, it actually stops the rays with a heavy-duty SPF 70 rating. It’s waterproof, sweatproof and after a weekend in the sun, my skin is still in the clear. I cannot, however, say the same thing for my boyfriend.

Price: On sale for $9, Org. $11.29
