Neutrogena and Aveeno Sunscreens for everybody

Let’s start with my absolute faves from Neutrogena and Aveeno since I am a proud #AveenoAmbassador. And oh boy, there’s some good ones from them that will have you covered no matter what you’re doing this summer!

Neutrogena Beach Defense

Neutrogena Beach Defense Line products are designed to protect skin from the sun AND prolonged water exposure. Along with photostable UVA/UVB blocking Helioplex technology, the oil-free formulas are water and sweat resistant and protect skin from the elements. All of the Neutrogena Beach Defense proudcts($13.49-$15.99) are fast-absorbing, smell good, are hypoallergenic and won’t clog pores. Now, you’re covered at the beach! Available in lotions for adults and kids, as well as a new sunscreen spray!

Neutrogena COOLDRY Sport Sunscreens

Neutrogena COOLDRY Sport Sunscreen($12.99-16.99) is the newest line of sunscreens offered by the #1 Dermatologist recommended sunscreen brand. Being active outdoors requires a powerful sunscreen to stay protected, but most sunscreens leave a greasy, sticky feeling that makes skin feel hot and suffocated. Well, Neutrogena has created a technology that eliminates that basted turkey glaze feeling with COOLDRY SPORT.  Neutrogena COOLDRY Sport Sunscreens have MICROMESH technology, which is clinically proven to allow perspiration and moisture to pass through the sunscreen without compromising the full strength SPF protection. As soon as you put it on, there’s an immediate cooling sensation on the skin and it smells SO good-like a refreshing shower gel! And your skin feels fresh and dry, and to be honest I can’t even tell I’m wearing sunscreen! Neutrogena Cooldry Sport Sunscreen is brilliant stuff!

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen SPF 45, SPF110($12.99-$15.99) is fast absorbing, non whitening and has a light-weight formula. It’s probably one of the most ‘elegant’ feeling sunscreens on the market, leaving skin with a sheer, soft, matte finish. It’s oil-free, won’t clog pores, and is water and sweat resistant too.  Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Water-Light Daily Face Sunscreen SPF 60 is a staple for the summer if you are a makeup wearer. It’s a water-light liquid formula that feels virtually weightless on the face, yet gives the same effective protection as Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Lotion sunscreens. It layers invisibly under makeup, and doesn’t affect it’s application at all.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen SPF 100($13.99-17.99) is the newest offering in the Ultra Sheer line, It’s formulated with Neutrogena’s highest broad-spectrum SPF protections available in a one-touch continuous spray that works at any angle. It’s non-greasy, ultra-light weight and has a nice, light fresh scent. It’s long-lasting too, offering 4 HOURS of  water and sweat resistant sun protection. WOW.

Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid SPF 50 With PURESCREEN($12.99) is one that’s not available in Canada at retailers, but there are places you can order from Amazon that will deliver it across the border. I’ve been more interested in using a mineral sunscreen on my face lately, and this one is outstanding. It contains PURESCREEN technology, which is a blend of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. It gives broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection in a weightess, liquid formula that’s fast absorbing and layers beautifully under makeup and moisturizers. It’s so unlike most mineral sunscreens I’ve tried that are thick and hard to blend out. It’s fragrance -free, has no oils or skin irritating ingredients, so if you have sensitive skin like I do, this is a great one to try.

Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid SPF 50 With PURESCREEN, Neutrogena Clear Face Sunscreen

Neutrogena Clear Face Sunscreen is the 1st sunscreen in Canada made for acne-prone Skin. It’s also the first sunscreen in Canada approved by Health Canada to NOT cause breakouts. And daily sun protection is REALLY important if you are using some sort of topical acne treatment, or even anti-aging products like retinols, retinoids, glycolics and AHAS. They all make your skin really sensitive to the sun, and can cause your skin to burn faster. This ultra-light, water and sweat resistant oil-free lotion leaves a matte finish to the face. It doesn’t feel heavy or clogging, so it’s perfect for oilier skin types. And the matte finish is perfect to apply makeup over top if you wish. Available in SPF30 and SPF60, it’s affordable at $12.99-$13.99 in stores.

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Sunscreen Lotion($14.99-$15.79) helps to reverse skin dehydration while giving you broad-spectrum and photostable protection against UVA/UVB rays. It’s the only sunscreen that has Active Naturals Colloidal Oatmeal to improve skin hydration all day with a single application. It reduces water loss and provides more hydration than any other sunscreen on the market right now. Also water and sweat resistant, your skin will feel better and healthier than it did before sun exposure.

Phew! That’s a lot of sunscreen from my people at Neutrogena and Aveeno! Any of them interest you? You HAVE to try the Neutrogena Cooldry Sport Sunscreen-it’ll change the way you feel about sunscreen!

  • OOO I used to love Neutrogena sunscreen sprays, but I don’t think we get them here in Belgium! Cooldry does sound good. I could use some extra cooling feeling on the skin in summer!

  • Do the Cooldry sprays contain any form of mint/menthol? The idea of cooling sounds good but I can’t do menthol derivates.

  • I’m currently using the Neutrogena UltraSheer sunscreen in SPF45 and really like it.

    BTW: I looked in Southgate Centre’s Dollarama shop in the basement and they have Thrills gum. 🙂

    • THANK YOU!! 😀

      • You’re welcome.
        Oh, forgot to mention how they are not on the “candy wall” by the cash registers but are in the candy aisle. Cheers!

  • I don’t know what the SP-eff is up, but I’ve been trying all these new sunscreens and SPF products lately and I hate them all…

    First I tried the Banan Boat SPF 50 for kids, but it’s super thick and leaves me looking like a ghost. Then I tried the Aveeno SPF55 for kids and it really balls up on my face and just looks awfully blotchy. And now today I’m trying my new Physician’s Formula SPF 30 Mineral Wear and it looks horrible! Pores galore, mega shine, a chalky finish, ugh. Why is it so hard to find food SPF products? Anyone have any applications tips on how to make my new sunscreen buys work? I’m starting to think that the problem is me…lol.

    • Hmmmmmm, put sunscreen on first, and then moisturize or prime over top? Maybe try that?

      • But you can’t do that when using mineral sunscreen 🙁 I just went back to my trusted Glo-Therapeutics sunscreen. It’s expensive, sure, but at least it’s fuss-free and easy to work with.

      I’ve told you some time ago to try Bioré Perfect Face Milk, I know I hate waiting for a shipment form Japan but if everything has failed for you, you should try it. A friend and me consider it our only a true sunscreen love.

      • We actually have a Japanese store here that sells Bioré, so next time I’m in the city I’ll go check it out.

      • Efrain

        Let me know if it works for you, but I’m pretty sure you’d like it. I just warn you that the packaging is all in Japanese but it’s worth it, in fact I’ll be placing an order on ebay for two bottles.

  • HOOOO my God, you’re teasing me woman! This is the range I was talking about, dry touch.. ♥

  • I used the Aveeno baby (mostly because I couldn’t find my normal sunscreen) and I loved how it felt on my skin, non-greasy but moisturizing. I will have to try the adult version and see if it has the same feel.

  • Liz

    I’ve used a lot of these in the past. Neutrogena Waterlight is an ongoing fave for the face, although I want to look into switching to physical blocks in the future!

    • Yeah, I hope they make that physical one I showed available here some day-it’s good stuff!

  • Lily

    We only have the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer sunscreen here. I didn’t even know Neutrogena has so many different types of sunscreen! How are you gonna use them up before expiry, dude? HAHAHA!

    • LOL I know, right? They do last a year so I have time to use them up hahaha. But I also give some to my friends and family-protect EVERYONE is my motto haha!

  • Efrain

    I know I’m late but I have to make a rant:

    The Neutrogena Ultra Sheer sunscreens are everything but not matte in my skin, even though they’re good sunscreen I hate that the packaging says they are matte but on me they apply greasy and end up greasier.

    The only sunscreen that’s really matte on me it’s Bioré Perfect Face Milk but getting it from Japan is a pain in the @ss so I don’t buy it a lot.

    • That’s too bad-they are for me and most people. You must be really oily then. I love their sunscreens.

      • Efrain

        I know I’m “blessed” with oily skin and Neutrogena isn’t the only brand that do it but still it’s quite annoying. I’ll give all money but give Japanese sunscreens.
