    Comments about Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Lotion SPF 50:

    I use this everyday under makeup. Works well, goes on white but color disappears after application, not greasy. Excellent protection and only zinc as the sunscreen with none of the other sunscreens that can harm us or the environment. Have not gotten any in my eyes but says won't sting eyes and it is supposed to be water resistant. I try to buy it on sale and or use it with a coupon at Ulta and am very happy with my purchase.

    Comments about Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Lotion SPF 50:

    So as far as SPF goes, this is pretty good. I like zinc spfs, and its spf 50 so thats nice too. It feels good, not greasy, no strong smell. But the more you rub it in, the more in balls up, its leaves the edges of your face white too. I tried to apply my makeup on top of it and it aged me so much. I returned it immediately. Its good for daily use if you're not wearing makeup, but even then be careful with application because its not cute to walk around with product and skin balled up on your face :(

      Comments about Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Lotion SPF 50:

      I was hoping to buy an inexpensive facial sunscreen to wear every day. I purchased this but immediately returned it. It was too thick and greasy. It would probably be good for beach days where you look sweaty and gross anyways, but not for every day wear. I went back to my BareMinerals spf 50 primer.

        Comments about Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Lotion SPF 50:

        This was sold to me as an alternate option for Juice tinted moisturizer with zinc. Not even close. This isn't as sheer as it says. Seems to go on a bit thick and white. Not sheer! I'll be sticking with Juice for now. It's worth the price.

        Comments about Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Lotion SPF 50:

        I don't often feel strongly enough about a product to write a review, but this one I do. I've used this brand of facial sunscreen before with no issues, but never used the one with zinc. I used this product for 2 days on the beach, and while it provided great protection from the sun, by the 3rd morning I woke up with 2 very large acne bumps on my cheek, 2 or 3 on my chin, and 2 on my shoulder (I used it there as well). I'm in my early 50's and don't have breakouts. I discontinued using the product and applied some OTC acne meds to the spots and they've now almost gone away. No, I do not believe the bumps are a coincidence due to how quickly they appeared and how quickly they started going away after discontinuing the product. I will not use this product again. I only gave it a star because it did provide great protection and kept me from getting burned.

          Healthy Sunscreen with zero toxic ingredients which means zero skin irritation! A bit gummy going on but will blend in and works well under makeup. In the winter, dryer months I will first apply moisturizer.

          was excited about mineral spf. Disappointed with white cast appearance. Used once, will return. Not worth it

            I must use sunscreen due to rosacea and skin cancer. This Zinc one is the best coverage. It does not sting the eyes or irritate my sensitive skin. It is definitely for face. Thickness is less compared to their regular Zinc.

            This product did not absorb and left a white cast on my face that remained there for hours. I will say that it provided great protection, but looked ridiculous. I will not be purchasing again.
