    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!

            I use this product by applying a few drops to my serum and my face lotion, mixing them together and then applying generously to my face and neck areas. This makes it so easy to apply sunscreen and it just becomes part of your daily routine. Before I used this product I was not consistent in using sunscreen on my face. Now I use this product 365 days a year!

              Comments about Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid SPF 50:

              Generally, I enjoy all Neutrogena sunblock products, esp. the higher SPF spray/mist body products. I purchased this one for my face, though, and after a few uses, I have not been particulary pleased. The texture is quite water-y, and it leaves a white residue at the edges. Only used a few times, so I am not sure if I would re-use or re-buy... I have sensitive skin and I am sun-sensitive, so I am not sure about mixing with other day cream or serum? Maybe I'll do some more research or try to ask for recommendations about this product.

                I hope they never stop making this. It is the only sunscreen that does not burn my skin. It is superlightweight and not the least bit greasy.

                    Comments about Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid SPF 50:

                    This product leaves a terrible, streaky white cast no matter how well you try to blend it. I'm very pale and normally a small white cast does not bother me, which tells you how strong this white cast is.

                    I like and use silicones all the time, but there is SO MUCH dimethicone in this product that when you use the 1/4 teaspoon that is required for sunscreen protection, your face feels like it has a layer of slick vinyl on it. It's a really grody feeling.

                    Don't be fooled. Because it's in "liquid" form you might think you're protected by a very thin (inadequate) layer. When you use the amount of sunscreen that you need to, this product is aboslutely awful.

                    Note that even when you apply a thin layer, there is still a white cast and heavy silicone feel.

                      Comments about Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid SPF 50:

                      I stumbled across this product last summer when I started wearing sunscreen for the first time in my life after (stupidly) being an indoor and outdoor tanner for years. I realized that a lot of sunscreens stung my face and made it look and feel wind stung. After doing some research I found out that it was the chemicals in the other sunscreens that made my skin feel so irritated. This sunscreen is hard to find but it is AMAZING. It is a physical sunblock so it doesn't have the icky chemicals. And unlike most physical sunblocks it is a liquid so it is easier to spread and absorb and doesn't leave you ghostly white. I don't even feel like I need make-up after I put this on, my skin feels so good. Great for my husband and daughter too! This is NOT the same as the Ultra Sheer liquid which is still a chemical sunscreen. You have to look for the one that says 'pure and free'. Also, it says it is waterproof and sweat proof but I reapply often just in case. Please please please never stop carrying this online as it is no longer available in my two closest Ultas and I have never encountered a product like it. Good price for such a great product too! The bottle is tiny but don't let it fool you, it lasts a long time!
