Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Light, not oily, absorbs FAST, good sun protection
The Bottom Line: Recommended by our dermatologist, this is a nice sunscreen, but it is expensive for such a small tube.
Skin cancer runs in my husbands family and at his last appointment our dermatologist twelve skin cancers were treated on my husbands face

He came home with a list of products the dermatologist wanted him to use, one was Neutrogena Ultra Sheet Dry-Touch Sunblock, with a SPF of 70! We purchased this at Target for $12.00.
I have melasma and have to apply a good SPF sunscreen on my face every single day. I have used this product as well, and I am quite pleased with it. The tube contains 3 ounces, and the product is white and creamy, which blends into the skin incredibly fast, leaving no greasy residue on face or hands, no white marks, and no shiny finish.
It contains "helioplex", which is a broad spectrum UVA-UVB sunscreen. It claims to have a lightweight clean feel, that it absorbs fast, and leaves skin soft and smooth. As a bonus, it is also waterproof so this would be good to use before going swimming.
I often get frustrated by false claims on skin care products, but this one does exactly what it says it will do. The name "Dry-Touch" is a perfect description of this sunscreen! It is dry to the touch, no grease or oil left behind, and it really does absorb fast, leaving a light feeling to the skin.
You are probably wondering if it works. Yes! I think most sunscreens would work if used daily, and as directed (15 minutes before sun exposure), but this one has done the job. My husband has had no recurrence of those basil cell carcinomas on his face. To be truthful, this is the first time in his life he has become concerned enough to actually use the sunscreen every day as directed by our doctor. I am sure that has made a huge difference.
I love that this sunscreen is oil free and PABA free, but I can't say I am crazy about the scent. I prefer unscented sunscreens, and I know it is hard to make a sunscreen truly unscented, but some smell better than others. This one has a sweet flowery scent, but it does fade with time, so it's not as noticeable. Still, I do feel it interferes with any perfume I might want to wear.
The back of the tube bears the seal of the American Cancer Society, and so far it has indeed helped keep my husband free of cancerous spots on his face. I give this sunscreen five stars.
