Askmewhats Reviews: Neutrogena Sun Block

The night before I left for a trip, I knew HK's going to be really sunny and I would need all the sunblock I can get to protect myself. I wanted something really light, sheer, and doesn't have this heavy feeling and smells ok. I hate the smell of sunblock to be honest, that is why I seldom use them!

It was a good timing when I saw the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunblock with SPF 50+! I would go for SPF 25, but since they have it in 50 I may as well try it!

Here's how it looks like

Here's the sunblock as I sqeezed a bit on my hand
Not too sticky and not too liquid-y, just right

Here's how it looks like when rubbed a bit

And here's how it dries up....ULTRA SHEER

Neutrogena Says ---

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+
is a revolutionary, dermatologist-tested formula that contains Helioplex technology, the latest breakthrough in UV protection.

Helioplex delivers unbeatable UVA protection. It works better to help prevent damaging UVA rays from penetrating deep under skin’s surface. Dry-Touch technology absorbs excess sunscreen oils, leaving a clean, lightweight, non-shiny finish.

Askmewhats Says ---

  • It honestly works! I've been out directly under the sun at the HK Disneyland from 9am til 6pm and I didn't get burned!
  • Smells so good
  • Feels so light and absorbs quickly
  • Sweat-proof (I was sweating like a pig and I didn't have the chance to re-apply and I was fine)
  • Affordable
  • can't seem to find one!

I will definitely take this along with me and will definitely use this everyday! I've started to use sunblock for my face as seen on my post here. I've been on a lookout for a body sunblock but I get turned off with the strong scent that I don't like. I really love this and I highly recommend this to anyone who plans to go outdoor and doesn't like the "icky" sunblock feeling.

  • Apply a good amount 15minutes before you go outdoor. Re-apply if you sweat too much or if you've been exposed from the sun too long.
  • Apply sunblock on hidden / frequently forgotten areas like the knees, elbows, behind the ears, neck etc...

Will I repurchase?


What's your HG sunblock?
I haven't used a lot of sunblock and I always have mine expired before I have the chance to finish it up!
I always buy a new sunblock before an outing or trip but always ends up leaving it unused.
With this sunblock?
I heart, I will be using this EVERYDAY!


  1. I keep hearing good stuff about this sunblock :)

  2. Have you tried the Neutrogena sunblock made of gell? It's even better because it has this cooling sensention to it. But the highest spf they have in it that i seen so far is spf 30

  3. where can you find the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunblock btw? coz i don't think we have it in the drugstore in Indonesia? -sigh- i think we have nothing LOL

    thanx for the review, i'll try to find it somewhere...else hehehe

  4. Morning Nikki!

    I have this too, but I don't quite like this. I feel that it doesn't do much oil control (i have oily T & U zone) and i feel it's a bit heavy and difficult to spread out.

    Maybe i'm just used to my Biore. :P

    But am glad that you like this!

  5. HEy WOW you were in hk?? how long were you in hk?? hhehe

    I would've gone crazy shopping if i were in hk ^___^.. yeah I thought no one ever reviewed those kate powder gel eyeliners.. T___T sorry i reviewed them a bit late... but you can still purchase them on

    and for those EDM samples heheh I just got a bunch of samples my self =p LOVE EDM

  6. Lydia, I read a lot of good reviews about this as well, that's why I gave in! :)

    Aprecia, yes, i saw the one in Gel version, same price and it stays cooling sensation. I didn't buy it because I don't like cooling sensation on "some" days. :)

    Ai, I believe they should be available in drugstores there in Indonesia, as Neutrogena is Johnson and Johnson made product and you do have JnJ products there right? I hope you can find one!

    Plue, yes I like this and I don't find this oily at all!! Well at least you got Biore to help you out, we don't have much Biore products here!

    Purple Snowflake, yes, I just came back from HK and I felt bad for not buying the KATE gel liner, I just bought 1 pencil liner from Kate! I'm glad you love EDM

  7. Did you wear the sunblock on your face? That is the biggest problem I have with sunblock, finding one that doesn't make my face feel greasy or oily. It's oily enough without any help!

  8. ooohh! i have this too! and i love it!

  9. I'm too lazy to use sunscreen. Bad, I know. But when I do bother, I use Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion. It's the only sunscreen that doesn't bug me too much. :)

  10. im gonna need some of this sunblock here in sunny california!

  11. I've been using this one for years, its affordable and it works.

  12. Smirking cat, no , I don't wear this on my face, just my body, for the face, I'm using a separate face sunblock from the Face Shop. I like the Face Shop because it is matte and absorbs quickly, I hate oily sunblock too!

    Missmall, I have heard so much raves about the Shiseido sunblock!!! I wish to try it some time

    Fabuless Beauty, YAY! Happy for both of us!

    Vanessa, you do wear sunscreen right? You've got such great weather in Cali!

    Jnie, another high five for us! If I can't find a better one, this would be my HG for the moment :)

  13. haha! that's MY sunblock i use for my face! :P

  14. I am seraching for sunblock and my friend juz recommended me this.

    Now I get more convince after read your review :)
