Rated 3.3 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review my one/two spots of monthly cystic acne are gone
I wear the 30 SPF Clear Pore and it works better than any other SPF product I've tried (and I've tried them all including more natural products). The other ones always caused the occasional huge cystic acne and clogged pores, especially in my t-zone. This products seems to dry up a potential cystic acne and contain it to a minor blackhead that comes right out. I hope this is a product I can continue to wear daily. I worked for a few months at an outdoor job, very hot, very sweaty and it worked great. I used a light layer of mineral powder makeup over it. I wish you would do a night moisturizer with the same clear pore ingredients.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for sensitive skin
3 stars because it does not break me out like other sunscreens do, however my face is raw and red whenever I use it.
I do have sensitive skin but no other sunscreen has ever given me such a reaction before. I initially thought I must just have forgotten to reapply and ended up with a sun burn but after avoiding for a week and resuming use it's clear it's the sunscreen that is irritating. I will not be repurchasing.

For a product that is suppose to be for acne prone skin, this product caused breakouts as a result from clogging my pores. Not worth the few breakouts because it smells bad, feels greasy, and overall is just an underwhelming product.
Made me breakout so bad

Woke up with blisters on my face! I had clusters of pimples that were itchy, and painful. Left scars on my face as well. But at least I didn't get a sunburn I guess.

Anything related to my skin I am ridiculously nervous about, but I needed sun screen for my morning routine that was safe enough for my skin. This stuff may go on a little greasy, but once dry you won't notice. My cystic acne disappeared and my face always looks and feels so fresh with this on. I put it on after I cleanse ans put moisturizer on.

For a product that is oil-free, this sunscreen feel SO OILY. It goes on nicely but it feels so greasy and makes my face shiny.
My entire face broke out
Kayak3 from Wilmington NC
I used this on my face and the next morning my entire face is broken out in horrible acne. It's red, clustered, and extremely painful. My skin isn't extremely sensitive and I whole heartedly regret using this!
I hadn't broken out in years and this caused me to
MMR from Louisville Kentucky
My skin isn't normally sensitive but this product made my forehead itch so badly and then within 2 days I had clogged pores. I have tried this on 2 separate occasions. Once while I was on the beach and then 2 days ago for work. And both times my face broke out and itches.

I originally bought this for camping. Tried it out WORKED GREAT!! I'll continue to use this even for daily use !
MimiRose from Lake Mills, WI
After a pre-cancer skin scare, I asked my dermatologist what sunscreen he recommended, and he said "any Neutrogena product with helioplex". I went right out and purchase Clear Face Break-out Free Liquid Lotion Sunscreen, with an SPF of 30. It was easy to apply, and smelled nice, too. After several days of use, I noticed something else about my skin: it looked better! It felt soft, and fine lines weren't as noticeable, and it certainly protected my skin from the sun's harmful rays! So it was a win-win! Great protection, and an improved skin! Can't beat that!
It Keeps Getting the Job Done!

I don't see my face breaking out or getting sunburned when I use it - so I keep using it.
Light and Protective
N from Fort Lauderdale
Feels like a moisturizer, protection of a sunblock. My mom and I both use it and have different skin types, yet neither of us breakout. Great!!
Mandi from NC
So I love the way this makes my skin feel when it dries. But sometimes it makes my skin burn and it always seems to get in my eyes and makes them burn like crazy! I used Aveeno before this and I never had that problem.

Plays well with SOME products
Nina from Florida
Pros— not heavy. Didn't break me out. Not greasy.
Cons— as MANY sunscreens are, it's drying once they set. Pills with CERTAIN moisturizers (I had to experiment.)
Celeste from Philadelphia,Pa
Once I put on my skin it's started looking like my skin was peeling. I made sure to not put lotion and it still did the same thing. Regret buying, will return it
Samm2 from New York, NY
Initially it worked fine with no problems. However, after only a couple days of using this product, my face was covered in blackheads and I got a few huge pimples
Best drugstore sunscreen
Dawson McSpadden from Nashville
AMAZING for oily and acne prone skin! It feels oily at first but it goes away fast and leaves an amazing glowy but matte finish. It is realistic to use everyday and reapply
jackie281 from canada
I gave this product many chances but it broke me out everytime. Very disappointed since it specifically says wont cause breakouts. Clearly misleading.
The best sunscreen on the market!!
Stepha1969 from West Orange, NJ
I have been using this for face and my chest for years, always used to have issues with sensitive skin until I switched to this but not anymore. It is amazing protection and goes right into the skin. Love it! Please Neutrogena, always have it!!
This sunscreen gave me a rash.
Grace1999 from New Jersey
Used this for three days and when I woke up, my skin was itchy and sore, with red bumps all over, imitating the look of cystic acne. My skin is not typically sensitive, but here's the kicker- my friend used thirty and I used fifty(spf) and she got a slightly less severe rash. I'm so upset and disappointed as I use Neutregena products frequently. Do not buy this product.
Didn't play nice
Jessica from Lanham, MD
I wanted to like this sunscreen so bad. But it didn't play well with my toner and serums. Something in this product reacted with them, making this sunscreen ball pill up while I attempted to rub into my screen. I even tried patting it into my skin but this just made it worse during the day it would come off if I touched my face at all making it look like I had a skin condition. Forget trying to put makeup over this. After a few hours even with a primer over top it would start to make your makeup look super caked where ever you have texture from pores or scars, plus burned more then I'm comfortable with when first applied. It's going back.
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT !
taiand from San Antonio,Tx
My skin has really been clearing up these past few weeks due to another product I've been using that's natural. I decided to use this sunscreen today since it was very sunny out and I have sensitive and acne prone skin. Hours later I started getting a rash around/under my nose and under one of my eyes (on the cheek). I still have it now and my skin BURNS ! Plus i started breaking out a bit again and my scars are really red and noticeable now.DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

Not really good for me.
Best sunblock for my face
Outdoorsy Girl from Marietta, GA
I use alone on face and neck before I get exposed to sun at pool or exercising outside. I will also use under a liquid foundation with SPF for an extra layer of protection if I know I am going to be outdoors.
