A, B, C’s of Sun Protection
I’m a fan of Neutrogena products. I’ve used their face and body washes, and some makeup, and generally been pleased.
Recently, I was given the opportunity to review Neutrogena UltraSheer Liquid Sunblock, courtesy of Tidal Labs. I jumped at the chance because I was going to Mexico this summer and sunblock was a necessity. I thought that might be a good place to test this stuff out.
The small bottle of sunblock was perfect for travel. I spent my first full day in Mexico on the beach, so I used the Neutrogena UltraSheer Liquid Sunblock on my face. It has an SPF of 30, which makes it a good daily sunblock. I liked how the lotion doesn’t feel greasy on your skin and is easy to apply.
It’s super important to wear sunblock year-round. I learned in my high school AP Environmental Science class that UV rays are like your A, B, C’s. UV-A causes aging, UV-B causes burning, and UV-C causes cancer. I don’t really want any of those things (although some of them were not avoided…like burning), but any protection is better than no protection! I’d like to keep my youthful skin for a while. 🙂
I didn’t really use the sunblock on the rest of my body since I think this is meant more for the face. The applicator doesn’t really make it seem like you can use it on your entire body for sun protection (though I have used it since my trip on my arms for when I’m out running). For the rest of my body, I used another Neutrogena sunblock with SPF 100+. Unfortunately, the Mexico sun is so hot that I still got burned (and I probably needed to reapply though).
After a day out in the sun, my cheeks were a little red (as in you could tell I got some sun), but they didn’t burn like other parts of my skin did. In general, I think this is a great sunblock for everyday use. It’s always important to wear sunblock (even in winter) to help protect against those damaging UV rays that cause aging, burning, and cancer. I’m still using Neutrogena UltraSheer Liquid Sunblock daily on my face as my general morning moisturizer and sunblock.
