As a pale lady, I've always been a fan of a good sunblock. Especially one you could wear on your face that was light and non-greasy. For years the East Asian market has led the way with facial sunblock. When I was a student studying in Japan before the turn of the century (yikes!) I can remember stocking up on SPF 100. Thankfully the good people at Neutrogena heard my prayers and answered all my wishes with their Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock available in SPF 70 and 55. I've not yet tried the SPF 55, but I've gone through quite a few bottles of SPF 70 to recommend this product.
If you're accustomed to Japanese or Korean brands of facial sunblock, Ultra Sheer Liquid will be no surprise. It's a liquid which you shake before using and goes on light, smooth, blends into skin and leaves your skin feeling moist. Unlike some Japanese brands I've tried, which leave my face dry and tight, I find the Neutrogena formula moisturizing. I do have dry skin, so I moisturize, then apply this sunblock, and then foundation, but I still don't find my face getting greasy. I'm not sure how this would fare on greasy skin. Any of you out there tried it? Honestly, it's not so light I don't notice it. Of course, I notice it but honestly after 5 minutes I can't even tell I've put it on. Although there is a slight sunblock lotion smell it's not strong. It's the best sunblock I've used, and with it widely available at drug stores in the US, it's much more accessible than the Japanese brands. It usually retails for $12.49 US. The only downside to this product is that it's not been released in the UK. Maybe Neutrogena don't think we get enough sun exposure to warrant a release here, so in the meantime, I will continue to buy it from the US!
Do you use any facial sunblock?
