Neutrogena’s Advanced Sunscreen SPF 100

7 Aug

I’ve been on a major freckle alert all Summer but thanks my newest favourite find I’ve had nothing to worry about. Neutrogena Spectrum SPF 100 is must-have for anyone who wants to stay young, skin cancer-free and basically avoid burning or even tanning. In fact I think anyone who has skin should own a tube of this.

The claim:

  • Ultra Light
  • Clean Feel
  • Non-greasy, leaves skin soft and smooth
  • Waterproof, sweatproof, resists rub-off
  • Light fresh scent
  • Oil free
  • PABA free

Sunscreen with high-factor tends to come in a sudocrem like consistency, with a greasy texture that just sits on my skin and stain my clothes – and let’s not even mention tiny flies drowning in it and having to peel them off my skin. There is nothing sexy about sunscreen. In fact, a burka has sometimes felt like a more favourable option. But this sunscreen is different.

Neutrogena has developed a breakthrough sun protection technology complex specifically engineered to deliver very high, very broad and photo stable UV protection.  Unlike other sunblocks this one is ultra lightweight, so much so that I didn’t even feel like I was wearing anything on my skin. It’s non-greasy, absorbs in seconds and lasts for up to five hours.

I’m a devotee.

Where to buy it:

I had trouble finding a stockist in Ireland or even the UK and ended up buying it on Ebay, though I see http://www.amazon.com are also stocking it.
