Ouch

The other day I did this to myself by being dumb and not wearing sunscreen:


Okay, so you can't tell how pink I am, but I was pretty pink...even more than the shirt I am wearing in this picture.

So I decided I needed to start looking for some good sunscreen for my face.  I like Banana Boat for the rest of my body because it smells so good.  But, I have to be careful about what I put on my face.

I can't wear a lot of makeup because my skin breaks out pretty easily.  So, wearing sunscreen on my face is like just asking for some bad skin.  Luckily, I was given the chance to review some new sunscreen from Neutrogena called UltraSheer Liquid Daily Sunblock.  I got to try the SPF 70.




Here were my first impressions of this sunscreen:

1. It smelled good.  I don't like the smell of many sunscreens (hence the using Banana Boat for the smell alone)  It smelled a little like flowers...not sure what kind, but I liked it.

2. It went on like a lighter sunscreen.  Not super light, but not really thick like most sunscreens.

3. Once it soaked into my skin it felt light and like regular lotion for your face.  Definitely not like an SPF 70 sunscreen.  It was crazy!

4. It didn't seem to make any difference on my skin throughout the day.  My skin didn't get any oilier than it usually does.  I totally was expecting it to but it didn't.

5.  It hasn't made me break out at all!  This is probably the most important thing to me.

Right now there is a coupon for $2 off here.

I will update you later on when I have used it more to whether or not I still love it!

I think you picked the right one. My daughter-in-law is a cosmetic dermatologist and this is the sunscreen she recommended to me. I really like it.
You may need to see a doctor about that burn. Sounds crazy but you may have done some very serious damage.
Take care!!

Neutrogena makes the BEST sunscreens! For the body, I like their spray-on stuff in a light blue can. It's light, not sticky and smells nice (flowery like you said). I'll have to give that one a try!

OUCH! I have totally been there. Us blonde haired, blue eyed, fair skinned ladies have to stick together. I am going to try that sunblock now... anything that works! :)

Oh thank you! I need to try this! I have sensitive skin and I do not like putting those greasy lotions on my face. I will be using that coupon very soon here. :)

I'm so glad you tried this for me. It sounds as though we have the same concerns. I will have to give it a try.
I wonder if the coupon works in Canada?

Another good one is Coppertone Oil Free. I have the same skin issues and that one never makes me break out. Thanks for the review!
