A few weeks ago, I posted a preliminary review of Neutrogena's UltraSheer® Liquid Daily Sunblock with an SPF of 70. Having used the product for the past 3 weeks I am happy to report that it meets this mama's approval in the effectiveness category.
I applied my sunblock daily following my morning face care routine and I must say, I gave it a run for its money, so to speak! I tested it at the water park, the playground, the ball games, the family walks, the beach, and more and can say that I honestly did not pick up any noticeable sun coloring on my face.
I was able to wear it both alone and under makeup without any unpleasant odor or residue (as has been a problem with a number of facial sunblocks I've tried in the past). The one downside I found is that it is, as the name implies, just a sunblock. If your skin typically requires a moisturizer (and let's face it, most of us do in some form or another), you will still have to apply one. As a busy mama, it's always nice to find products that do double (or triple!) duty, so it would be convenient to have a moisturizer built into my sunblock. That being said, most combination products are moisturizers with sunscreen, an important distinction. Sunscreen does not provide the same broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection as sunblock. Therefore, I don't really mind the extra step given the overall benefit received and I will continue to use this product on a regular basis to protect my face from the glorious rays of the sun!
