    I've tried multiple face spfs. This is the perfect one to try. It's really light with a high spf. I have sensitive skin and it doesn't cause any problems. I will definitely buy this again. It goes on sheer, perfect!

    Comments about Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid SPF 50:

    I have sensitive oily/combination skin with rosacea and occasional breakouts.
    This is a very effective non-chemical (mineral based) sunscreen with a strong SPF 50. It is fragrance free which is great for sensitive skin. It does leave a slight white cast, however, for a SPF 50 mineral sunscreen it is very light compared to others I have tried and does well under makeup if you give it a few minutes to dry. Much better value and product than the Mac primer with SPF 50 that I had been using. Bottle is also really easy to use. Product comes out of a small extended tip so you get the right amount to use on your face or neck, unlike the usual sunscreen tubes.

    Leaves a white cast

    Comments about Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid SPF 50:

    My skin is a pale beige/olive tone and this sunscreen leaves an obvious white cast. Even with my foundation on top, I look ghostly. Also, after some wear, it starts to feel very powdery and I can just feel it sitting on my face. A bit disappointing.

      Comments about Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid SPF 50:

      I hate the stiff way sunscreens typically go on - you have to tug at your face so it defeats the purpose almost. And most leave you too white. This one is nice and liquidy and doesn't leave me white. Blends very well. I apply it a while after I've applied moisturizer.

      I live in AZ so sun block is important. This product is soft and smooth and used under my moisturizer. So far I haven't experienced a sunburned nose.

      Comments about Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid SPF 50:

      I chose this sunscreen above others becuase of the brand and the price, as well as the promise that it didn't have that awful sunscreen smell. While the scent is pretty neutural, I just can't get behind this sunnscreen. It leaves a heavy white cast on my skin and makes me look sickly and pale, even under my makeup. The cast might not be noticable if you have very pale skin already, but I don't. Worse still, the cast doesn't really fade through the course of the day. On the bright side, I can never say I missed a spot, because it would be very obvious if I did! I also found it difficult to wear under my makeup. It takes too long to absorb and settle into my skin, so when I put my makeup on, the sunscreen starts to pill up and flake off of my face (I tried using some of my other foundations and found that the pilling still occured). Even with a pore-correcting primer, it makes my pores are very pronounced through my regular makeup. There's just not enough to like about this product to justify buying it again.

        Comments about Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid SPF 50:

        This product does go on easily and it is not oily, but it left a white, ghostlike film on my skin that I could not cover with makeup. I ended up washing my face and starting over. I really wish that it had worked for me as I do like a high SPF for my face.

            My face is very sensitive to the sun and most products sting on second application, but not with this product. I did not burn in the Florida sun!

              The liquid is applied a few lightweight drops at a time. You can use it alone or under makeup. It doesn't seem to cause clogged pores or blemishes.
              Really nice!
