It's a bummer that we need to use sunscreen like we do these days, but with the ozone issues, skin cancer, etc, it's nice to have an excellent product from a brand that has always stood for quality.

I've never tried a Neutrogena product that I didn't like, but when I found out they had sunscreen I was really pleased. My kids have somewhat sensitive skin, as do I. I don't like heavy, greasy and smelly sunscreens. This variety provides excellent protection (55) with Helioplex, which creates a really extraordinary sunscreen.

If you are looking for a cream sunscreen that has significant protection without the gimmicks of crazy colors, smells, a sunscreen that goes on evenly and is well absorbed, I recommend Neutrogena's sunblock.

I burn very easily, and this seems to protect well. When I was outside a lot, I would use the product often. The major problems are that when I rub it in, it leaves white residue behind in my eyebrows (blonde) that looks pretty gross, and then it is usually pretty time consuming to rub out. The biggest concern for me, however, is that it runs in to my eyes much of the time, and when it does, it is PAINFUL. If you do not sweat much or are using this for moderate outdoor recreational purposes, I think it would be fine, but if you are active, just make sure you don't get it anywhere near your eyes..

        If you ever need a sunblock for a normal to dry face, this would be the one. Knowing how to use sunblock is important. I tried many sunblocks to help reduce the appearance of my 4 year acne red marks. This does help reduce the new ones of course from the sun. Add a small amount to your face every 3-5 hours when in direct sunlight. Hey readers! Get this product asap!

        Comments about Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen, SPF 55, 3 fl oz:

        I purchased this product after doing extensive research on products that provide good sun protection for runners. I run between 15-25 miles a week and almost all of it is done outside in the afternoon sun. I also sweat a lot and was looking for a sunblock that would not burn my eyes when it runs. Here are the pros and cons:

        PROS:
        - I believe that it provides good sun protection because my skin has not burned at all when I used this product, and I notice less freckles appearing on my face.
        - I use this on all my exposed skin (e.g. face, neck, arms, legs) and it dries quickly, non-greasy and no residue.
        - I have not broken out on my face at all after using this product.

        CONS:
        - I was hoping that this sunblock would prevent me from tanning, but I do have noticeable tan lines.
        - While I sweat, it begins to leave white streaks on my skin and when it dries, it leaves a white powdery residue.
        - I also notice that it stains stuff that I touch (car seat, car door, etc.) when I'm done with I run, but it's not anything that can't be cleaned or washed.
        - I do notice that it burns my eyes ocassionally when it runs, but it's very brief and doesn't affect my sight or running (and I wear contacts).
        - I do need to scrub my skin in the shower to remove all of the sunblock, but I have noticed that with all sunblocks/sunscreens that I have tried.

        Overall, I do like that it provides good sun protection, but I wished it didn't run so easily and leave a white mess.

            I have extremely sensitive skin and this is the only broad spectrum sunscreen that I can use. It feels great, blends in quickly without any white residue left on the skin. I love that it is nongreasy. My skin looks great all day long. I am not one to write reviews, but I want other people to try this incredible product.

                I just got back from the beach. My face got a tad red on the first day and the rest of me was ok; the sunburn on my face did not get worse as the week went on. (redness was gone midweek.) I reapplied it to my face and shoulders once or twice every day so I really don't think I should've gotten red at all but oh well. The bad part was, when I wiped my eyes (with my hands after going underwater) it stung! pretty bad really - I had to keep my eyes closed for a good long while before I could open them again without them burning. Since I had put it on well before I started sweating/got in the water, I would say it must not have absorbed very well. It's a little on the expensive side in my opinion. I have not had a sunscreen make my eyes burn so bad before so I would not recommend it.

                  This product is so-so. I use this everywhere except for my face. I have pale skin and it leaves a chalky residue on my skin. It's also extremely hard to rub in.

                  It feels very heavy for the first hour and then that goes away, but I feel like I have to keep rubbing it into my skin constantly to get rid of the ugly white marks it leaves.

                  I was very disappointed with this product. I am willing to pay more for Neutrogena because of its quality, and tha fact that none of its products, including this one, has ever irritated my skin. However, the Dry Touch is impossible to rub in--I have tried using only a small dab at a time, but that doesn't help. And it is very easily displaced by perspiration. Will not buy it again
