NEUTROGENA ULTRA SHEER DRY-TOUCH SUNBLOCK SPF 55 Review
How many of us wear sunblock on a regular basis? Have you used it from the time you have been going to school with your mom's scampering around you to get you to slather some on? Just reminds me of the time when my mom used to try to slap some on my sister and me before we went to frolic in the sun.
Most of them were so uncomfortably greasy. Having been brought up in the U.A.E and the horrid summers there would ensure our sunblock sliding off our faces making us a goopy mess before we could say taekwondo. Let's get on with our review of this sunblock I recently got to test out.

MY EXPERIENCE AND THOUGHTS
It's a thick white cream which on application leaves a white tint to my skin which gradually when rubbed in with some effort absorbs into my skin and leaves quite a matte finish.
However, in a humid locale like Mangalore I started to sweat, the product did not come off but it did feel like I had something really heavy on my face and I wanted to wipe it off before I went to the gym.
But I wanted to test this further so I left the heavy feeling to linger and proceeded to my workout.
It did not slide off on rubbing with my gym towel, it was still there.
I do not think it's waterproof though as I splashed my face with water, I knew the sunblock was not on my face anymore.
I have used this outside for a short period of time but I did tan if I went outdoors longer with this. I tan really fast by the way, I have really sensitive skin.
It did not break me out but I would be looking for a better formulation for those really hot summer days.
It has a pleasant smell, nothing overbearing.
