Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch SunBlock

"How to avoid breakouts?"Apply Sunblock
"Want glowing skin?"Never forget applying sunblock
and the list goes on...

For someone like me who had never bothered to apply sunscreen before, it was such a daunting sight to see in almost every article. My initial idea was that the white stuff on cricketer's face is sunscreen and I do not want that white cast on my face at any cost so I was like "NOPE, thanks". This summer I decided to take this risk and started my quest for a good sunscreen. From one of the local drugstore shop in my colony I came across "NEUTROGENA Ultra Sheer- Dry Touch Sunblock"

As on their website

My thoughts:

Oppose to my fears Neutrogena Dry Touch Sunblock doesn't leave white cast on the face. I have dry skin and I have been using this whole summer and it did not make my skin more dry or scaly. I was scared that it will budge my foundation or BB cream which I apply on daily basis at work, but it did not, infact I feel like it helped my BB cream to stay in place even after 7-8 hrs at work. If you ask me if I felt any drastic difference in my skin tone or if it actually did help me to avoid getting tan, then I wont be able to help you in that case as I work indoor and I am in direct sun for very few minutes. But as far as the product overall performance is concerned, I am satisfied and happy to use it. It did not break me out, it does not have white cast to it, it does not shine or become oily with time, it does not separate my BB cream/ foundation. I apply pea size product on my face and neck and it absorbs right in. You can get more information about how "Helioplex broad spectrum uva-uvb rays" work on their website.
