Just before Christmas some of our Reader Review Panel told you what they thought about Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen ($17.95). And here's some more feedback on the sunscreen that's lightweight and perfect for Summer!
"Firstly, I must say the first time I tried Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen I said "wow" out loud. It really does feel dry, it takes just a few moments to absorb and my skin was left without any greasy residue I would normally expect to feel with regular sunscreen. This feels great on my skin has a pleasant smell. I'm giving it a definite thumbs up. I must admit I have not used sunscreen as much as I should because of the greasy residue but I have been regularly applying the Ultra Sheer. My skin thanks you."

"Just in time for summer, and what a little saviour this product is. Firstly, I adore the packaging. I love the smooth, sleek feel of the tube and its modern and simplistic features. No overly tacky wording, colours or slogans. Sweet. The squeeze tube design was a breeze to use and the lotion itself was easy to dispense form the tube. As for the formulation itself, it's amazing! Oh, how many times have I read ‘oil-free’ and ‘non-comedogenic’ and been severely disappointed! But not this time! Using it on my face, I was more than surprised. It stopped my poor little nose and forehead from being burned on a sunny Melbourne day. Thank goodness! It was so lightweight that I forgot it was on and had absolutely no trouble applying a little makeup over the top. This being said, however, the magic really kicks in on other parts of the body. Even on my freshly shaved legs (which can get sensitive), there was no irritation and no sunburn either! The size of the bottle is certainly handy for travel, the handbag or on the go. Props to Neutrogena’s clever little marketing peeps for that. I’d love to see this in a value size, though, because it can be pricey using multiple bottles of this in summer. Overall a fantastic product and despite the small size, Neutrogena is a trusted brand for skincare and have proven this once again. Its no-fuss, effective and well worth the price. I'm definitely repurchasing this one!"

"The Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen is a must-have for the Australian Summer. I am a big believer is wearing SPF, but finding the right one for my skin isn’t always easy—in comes Neutrogena! I found this sunscreen great for my skin, the texture is heavier than other sunscreens I have tried however when applied onto the skin, it smooths on nicely with no greasiness. It didn’t leave any white marks and has a lovely smelling fragrance. A definite staple in my handbag."
"I was so happy to be chosen to try Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen. I wear sunscreen every day under my foundation and with the warmer weather here, I always pay extra attention when putting it on my face. I loved that it didn’t leave my face greasy, so my foundation went straight on afterwards and didn’t have that oily look! I also loved that it felt light and weightless on my skin. I’d definitely purchase this product again!!"

"Thank you for BellaSugar and Neutrogena for the opportunity to trial this product. This is a 75ml tube of sunscreen in a squeeze tube and screw on/off lid. On application, this ‘Ultra-Sheer’ sunscreen immediately felt light on my skin, not sticky/thick, absorbed quickly and my skin was matte immediately. I love that this sunscreen is broad spectrum (UVA and UVB protection), and it’s also non-comedogenic and oil-free. The fragrance was reminiscent of a light typical ‘sunscreen’ smell which didn’t linger for too long. I loved the texture, very light and not sticky, with no overwhelming smell. The only negative is that when I put this product around my eyes, it made them sting, but I do have sensitive eyes and am a contact lens wearer. Otherwise this product performs extremely well in terms of effectiveness, cute, portable packaging and the price won’t break your bank!"
"I used to think that all sunscreens were the same, but after trialling the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen I have certainly changed my opinion. This sunscreen has a lightweight texture which quickly and easily absorbed into my skin without leaving any oily residue or traditional sunscreen smell. Because this sunscreen has a high SPF (30), is four hours water resistant and has the added benefits of helioplex, I felt confident spending time in the sun without damaging my skin. The tube is also a convenient size that you can easily take with you. All in all, a great product and one that I will buy in the future."

Incredibly light and, true to its name, sheer. It applies and blends easily and then is dry to the touch within less than a minute, to the point that you can’t feel it on your skin. The sunscreen does not feel sticky or oily. It has a very faint smell of the sunscreen, which by the way, I love! It is water- and sweat-proof, and true to the Neutrogena line, it doesn’t clog or block pores. I love this stuff and will continue using it beyond this review."
Autumns_Elegy had this to say:
"I’m in two minds about this product. I first used it on a hot sunny day; it was sweat resistant and worked well over makeup, however the lotion was more of a cream so I had to use more than usual to evenly cover my skin. I liked how it didn’t have a scent, and the helioplex formula was absolutely fantastic. But when in a hurry it was difficult to quickly apply and it was difficult to layer make up over the top unless I left it for five minutes. While a great sunscreen, I wouldn't reach for it first."
