Review of Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 55

Reader Review of the Day: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 55

By now, we all know that we need to wear our sunscreen. But when it comes to the formulation, I think most of us prefer a formula that's not too oily, doesn't smell weird, and doesn't leave a white residue behind. Recently reader Rainbow Cadillac reviewed Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 55 ($10), and here's what she said about her go-to sunscreen:

I use this sunscreen all the time. I love how it is moisturizing and how it does not leave my skin feeling greasy. It hasn't caused any breakouts on my face. Best of all, it doesn't leave a heavy dose of the "sunscreen" smell.

I will have to try this during the summer...usually I go without sunscreen, which is bad I know, but I haven't been able to find something that does not cause breakouts.

Thanks ladies, I'm trying this based on all your comments. I really need to start and stay with sunscreen again.

Ooh, I think I'll give this a try. My regular sunscreen has been impossible to find (and maybe discontinued?) so now I'm shopping around again.

I used this last summer and it really is a great sunscreen. It isn't greasy like sunscreens usually are.

This is my fave! What I also like is the texture/consistency of it. It's not too watery or too thick.

this is amazing....never going back to anything else. non-greasy, non smelly, no flakey/cakey.

No JessNess, you're not. It does the same thing to me, reminds me of my trips to Puerto Rico. I've used this sunblock before, and I really like it. I've never used it for my face though. I have different moisturizer's for that. I'm too afraid of breakouts and wierd makeup balls that perhaps poissondujour has experienced as well.

I thought I loved this product for a long time, but it rubs/flakes off my skin in a really weird way... and it takes my makeup with it.

i use the spf 55 under my makeup every day. the smell is the nicest part, and it's not any greasier than my foundation. i really dislike the fact that makeup usually only comes with spf 15 since i'm so fair skinned (pre-cancerous lesion removed from my nose when i was 9), so i only wish that the process of putting on sunscreen and foundation was a one-step process. but thanks to this product, i at least don't have to go to work with that "who's wearing sunscreen? are you going to the beach" smell.

It's the one I use too - I LOVE the fact it doesn't smell. There are some sunscreens whose smell I like, but I always find them too strong. Weirdly enough though, wearing that sunscreen on my face creates small break outs on my chest :? I've never had breakouts before that, so I'm still not sure how to handle them!

When I've used the SPF 70 version I break out every time WITHOUT fail. Sad, because I like the silky feel.

This is the only sunblock my oily brown skin can take. It evens out my skin color too, so that I don't have to wear any makeup.

I'll have to try it. I have the SPF 70, which does leave white streaks. (Good for sun protection, not so much for everyday use.)

I LOVE this sunblock. I've worn nothing but this sunblock for the past two summers and have been sunburn free for the first time in my life. I love that it doesn't get all greasy!

This is the sunscreen I use! I love it. It sinks right into the skin, no greasiness whatsoever.

Hmm, never tried this one... Oh, I love it too JessNess! Definitely makes me think of summertime! :)

My mom HATES sunscreen but will wear this. Am I the only person who actually loves the smell of sunscreen? It always reminds me of summer, the beach and the pool
