I have very sensitive skin, and when a similarly afflicted friend recommended this, I tried it, and it is my new Holy Grail. I used to have two types of sunscreens---the high spf ones that were greasy and caked up for serious outdoors activities, and much lower ones for every day wear with makeup. This does both!

I used to use this when I was about 18-20 years old and I had very oily skin. It worked really well then because I was acne-prone and this never clogged my pores. However, at age 30, my skin is dry and has mild rosacea. I thought I would give this another try given all of the good reviews and my previous experience. I was really disappointed. I applied it after my rosacea topical and at first I thought it was going well because it spread rather well. Then after it started to dry, it clung to all my dry skin and dried powdery. I was left with skin screaming for moisture, with a white residue that balled up every time I tried to fix it. I had to wash it all off and start over again, using a separate moisturizer and a separate sunscreen. So disappointed given this is marketed for sensitive skin. Dry rosacea prone folks, beware.

    Comments about Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 50 with PureScreen, 1.7 oz:

    Facial sun protection is something I'm always changing, trying to find the "perfect" one. This one certainly comes close. I like that it only has non-chemical sunblocks that do not sting my eyes. It comes in a opaque tube which protects the contents from deterioration and contamination. It is generously sized, yet also small enough to throw in your purse if you need extra protection. It does not turn white on my face - I am a medium toned Asian. It goes on a little heavy but absorbs to a nice non-greasy finish to wear under makeup. It's hard to find in the stores, so I always buy online. It's reasonably priced so I don't have to feel "stingy" with the product. It has a very faint scent, which is a big plus for me. Great SPF too.

      Comments about Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 50 with PureScreen, 1.7 oz:

      This is the least expensive pure moisturizer, sunscreen that goes on smoothly that I have ever used, other than ulna that costs twice as much. Hope Nutregena keeps making it. It is hard to find in regular stores. I ended up buying on-line.

      Comments about Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 50 with PureScreen, 1.7 oz:

      I have a really sensitive skin, rosacea and dryness. I can only use mineral sunscreen so I decided to purchase this item.
      Inmediatly after application my face started to burn and 3 days later I still have red burning patches on my face.
      Please be very carefull is you have sensitive skin.

      I use this product morning and evening after cleansing my face. It feels soothing and wonderful. It is easy to apply and feels clean and non-oily.
      My Rosacea is feeling happier.
      It is wonderful that the sunscreen of SPF 50 is included with the moisturizing benefits.
      The tube is small and easy to travel with. It easily fits in your purse or jacket pocket.

        Loved this product so much that I've used 3 whole tubes of it! Great for under make-up and just keeping your skin protected
        My dermatologist father says the healthy defense formula with helioplex will offer better protection so I'm giving that one a try.

          Comments about Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 50 with PureScreen, 1.7 oz:

          I'm fair-skinned and spend a lot of time in the sun doing sports and activities. This is the first moisturizer sunscreen I have found that doesn't sting my eyes, doesn't turn my skin white, and absorbs nicely - no gooky residue. I use it every day as my morning moisturizer, to make sure my face is always protected from the sun (spf 50). I also use it as a sunscreen on my hands and arms.

              This one is great! Everything made my skin break out therefore I never used a moisturizer just a daily sunprotection. Now I am in my 40's and my skin is too dry so I have to use a daily moisturizer. I was not happy with many of the Neutrogena sunscreens for the face but this one has naturally sourced ingredients and it did not make my skin break out. The white film does not bother me as long as I really spread it out well on my face; it just creates a (welcome) glow and the 50SPF is what I need in sunny CA

                Finally a sunscreen that uses titanium dioxide and zinc only, I can't stand all the other unnatural sunscreen ingredients, it makes my skin look horrible. Now this combo ingredient somehow seems to work really nice on my dry blotchy skin. This so called white film is evening out my skin tone, creates a soft and glowing look and I can easily wear my make up over it. I desperately need a daily moisturizer for my dry spots and sensitive skin. This sunscreen protects really well for my daily activities and it also moisturizes without causing any break outs.

                I think this is a good daily moisturizer. Howerver, I agree with others. Because the SPF is naturally sourced, it leaves a slight white layer on your skin. It's not super noticeable if you are fair skinned (like me). But extra whiteness seems to interfere with my makeup. So I generally wear this moisturizer only when I am not putting on any makeup.
