Comments about Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Lotion SPF 50:

I purchased this lotion for my face for everyday use. The product is quite thick and is a bit hard to rub in. I add a little moisturizer to help rub it in and this works fine. I do not use this everyday but only if I'm going to be in the sun. It does go on white and the white does go away rather quick. It does not feel greasy nor does it have a bad scent. I really don't notice a scent at all. I will buy this again as I like that the only active ingredient is zinc oxide. A little goes a long way so use only a small dot on cheeks and nose.

This product is sticky and does not spread easily. I was expecting something different I guess.

    I use for my son who goes to summer camp. It runs in well though it starts out white. Do need to reapply after a couple of hours

      Comments about Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Lotion SPF 50:

      I've been trying out a variety of sunscreens this summer and this one just didn't work for me at all. It has a very thick consistency which makes it difficult to rub in, and it leaves a white, almost powdery coating that just sits on my face all day. (My complexion is light-medium so I can't even imagine how odd it would look on a deeper skin tone.) I much prefer Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunblock Broad Spectrum SPF 70, but that one is chemical SPF whereas this one is mineral.

        Comments about Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Lotion SPF 50:

        I picked this up to see how it would do for kids, specifically their face. Chemical sunscreens are easy to rub in, but sting the eyes when it gets in them. This has been so great for use on the face. My husband and I even use it on our faces as well. It doesn't rub in super great, although it's much better than many other physical sunscreens. If you use a mirror and take some time, it ends up totally invisible. It has high concentrations of zinc oxide, making it a smart choice. This can be a bit tough to reapply and get rubbed in, but nothing too awful. It also dries down really great and doesn't rub off everywhere. If you sweat or get wet you might see some white residue, but a quick rub makes it clear again. As long as you don't mind that or having to use a mirror, it's no biggie. Overall, I recommend this for anyone wanting a physical sunscreen choice.

          Comments about Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Lotion SPF 50:

          I use sunblock every day (I work on the water) and I wanted to love this product. I'm a pretty devout follower of Neutrogena sunblock, and I really, really wanted this to be THE ONE. It isn't. It is heavy, doesn't rub in well, looks chalky and feels like cake frosting on your face. It does prevent sunburn, so it technically does it's job, but their other products are so much more pleasant to use. If your face gets sweaty or rained on it will run. And get on your clothes. I use SO MUCH more product than I do with other sunblocks because it is so thick, and to get a full coat I have to go through a lot. It is their first zinc sunblock, so I am hoping it will get better in the future.

              I'm looking for a sunscreen that I can wear on my neck and hands. I guess when the label said "SheerZinc",I thought it would be more sheer on the skin. It's very white and leaves a white film/color on your face and neck. It feels a little sticky too.
