Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 60+ - Dermatocare Reviews




Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 60+ is a physical sunscreen that has zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as active ingredients. It is a good choice for dry skin type.  However, it might leave a white hue on application.

Will it work?

 Yes, it is broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF of 60 and is sweat and water resistant for 80 minutes. Unlike most chemical sunscreen that works by chemical reaction and releases heat on your skin, Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunscreen is physical sunscreen that works by blocking UV rays and will not feel hot on application. The only disadvantage is that it might leave a white hue on the face. You can dab a face powder after applying this sunscreen to reduce this white shade.

For which skin type?

Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunscreen is best suited for dry skin because it has few comedogenic ingredients.

Is it safe?

Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunscreen does not have any harmful ingredients. EWG raises concern that retinyl palmitate used in sunscreen can cause skin cancer, and it should not be applied in the morning as it might react with the sun to cause sensitivity reactions, especially in the sensitive skin.

Will it irritate sensitive skin?

 Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunscreen has few irritating ingredients but is free of chemical sunscreen ingredients. It has been awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance for persons with eczema or sensitive skin conditions. However, patch test and cautious use is still recommended in the sensitive and rosacea prone skin.  Methylisothiazolinone in this sunscreen is known sensitizer and can irritate sensitive skin. If your eyes get irritated by the use of sunscreen often, then this sunscreen might also do the same.
