Terrible - I returned it the next day.

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.

    Caused my face to breakout

    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.

        Comments about Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Lotion SPF 50:

        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.

        Comments about Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Lotion SPF 50:

        I purchased this lotion for my face for everyday use. The product is quite thick and is a bit hard to rub in. I add a little moisturizer to help rub it in and this works fine. I do not use this everyday but only if I'm going to be in the sun. It does go on white and the white does go away rather quick. It does not feel greasy nor does it have a bad scent. I really don't notice a scent at all. I will buy this again as I like that the only active ingredient is zinc oxide. A little goes a long way so use only a small dot on cheeks and nose.

        This product is sticky and does not spread easily. I was expecting something different I guess.
