    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.

      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.
