Living in Southern CA with pale, sensitive, combination skin is a challenge! For years I've worn a SPF 15 daily moisturizer on my face and added a hat when out for long midday exposure, but still, at 43 the sun effects are really showing. I've spent the last 2 or 3 years trying products in the SPF 30-60 range and this is the best I've found so far.
So many "new" formulas, including the Neutrogena lines with Helioplex, go on smoothly and seem great for the first day, but then I develop an incredible itch everywhere the cream touched, particularly on my neck, that lasts for days! After trying a few brands/formulas all labeled for sensitive skin, I've concluded it must be the newer sunscreen chemicals. I had resorted to "old school" high-factor sunscreens when I knew I was going to be outside for a long time. Every one that I tried that didn't irritate instead left my face feeling greasy and looking shiny. Also, after a full day I would have white-head blemishes from clogged pores. Nothing more fun than zits in your 40's!
When I saw this product at the store and noticed the "original formula" label I took a shot. It's WONDERFUL! It goes on smoothly and adsorbs quickly. It does go on with a white cast from the sunscreens, but that completely disappears almost immediately. I've found I actually like the white cast for feedback during application - I can see that I've gotten full coverage while I'm applying it, but then it's gone. I've worn it several times for outdoor events with lots of sun exposure and it delivers: no sunburn, even on the nose or under the eyes, no shine, no breakouts, no itching and no hat-head! Thank you Neutrogena! This is the first review I've written, but this product motivated me. Please keep serving the truly "sensitive skin" market.

I bought this because it's fragrance-free and offers good protection for sensitive skin. First, I applied a tinted self-tanner all over my face and then I applied this sunscreen on half of my face and on the other half I put Neutrogena's Face Shield Sunscreen, which is also fragrance-free. I did this because there were some reviews that these two products leave a white film on your skin, so after using both, this Sensitive Skin sunscreen made me look pale even after I had applied the tinted self-tanner!! But the Neutrogena Face Shield sunscreen was less noticeable and did not leave my face feeling greasy, so I returned the Sensitive Skin one and kept the Face Shield sunscreen! I recommend this if you're sensitive and you want a Physical sunblock & don't mind the white film, otherwise, go with the Face Shield (the one that's unscented)!!
I'm grateful that Neutrogena continues to offer high-SPF and a formula for sensitive skin. I've got extremely fair (I burn in about 10 minutes) and sensitive (itchy, dry, and prone to rashes) skin. An SPF of 60 allows me to watch my son play a full baseball game dressed for the weather. If I use anything lower I'll get a terrible burn.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This product is useful in daily use, but not in truly high UV environments. I applied this several times a day in the desert and still burned. I was the only one, others in the group tanned, but did not burn using other sunscreen.
My mom is allergic to almost all sunscreens. she has tried various brands including expensive department store brands. She always breaks out in a red rash when she puts any chemical sunscreen on her face. This sunscreen only has physical sunscreens so she can tolerate this without any problems.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Neutrogena's Sensitive Skin "Sunblock Lotion" in a bottle was the only sunscreen product I found that didn't cause me to break out in an itchy rash. That product (with its "No irritating chemical sunscreens" label) no longer appears to be available so I tried this one instead. The skin on my face and neck turned dry, itchy, and red both times I used this "PureScreen" product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
