Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunblock ReviewSaturday, May 02, 2015
Did you know that my very first sunblock was from Neutrogena? I used to be rather dark-skinned during my teenage years as a result ...
- Invisible, weightless feel on the skin
- Non-greasy, matte finish
- Doesn't clog pores as it is PABA free and non-comedogenic
- Superior broad spectrum protection against skin-aging UVA and skin-burning UVB rays thanks to its Helioplex Technology. Here's why it is important to have protection against both UVA & UVB rays:Helioplex® Technology
What exactly is Helioplex Technology?
Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Sunblock products are formulated using chemical filters as they are known to provide more coverage against UVA and UVB rays than physical sunblock.
One of the most powerful FDA-approved chemical filters for protection against UVA is Avobenzone, but it is highly unstable under sunlight. Neutrogena was among the first in the US market to stabilize this filter by adding Oxybenzone and DEHN. This breakthrough technology was named Helioplex.
Not all sunblocks are created equal and there is a sunblock for every occasion. In today's post, I will be reviewing not one but two Ultra Sheer Sunblock products that are perfect for Singapore's climate.
As its name suggests, the Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock feels ultra-light and has a non-shiny finish. Besides providing broad spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays, it is also waterproof, sweat-proof and rub-proof, making it the perfect body sunblock for our humid climate. You can use it for sports and outdoor activities too.
This sunblock has a creamy consistency and a light floral scent that is reminiscent of a body moisturizer. It spreads easily and glides on like a dream, leaving a sheer, matte powdery finish on my skin without any greasy after-feel.
