Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 55 – My Review
I have always had pinkish or red skin during the summer months. Most would call me having a fair-complexion. I just say that I am very white.
It may be because I had strawberry blonde hair as a kid, looking like the character Bud on the original “Flipper”.

Maybe my light skin is because my family has roots in Europe? I don’t know about that, does that really dictate how light or white your skin is?
Because of my fair complexion, I have always had to be concerned about sunburn, sun damage, or worse with my skin.
Though as a child and even young adult I did not take the proper precautions, but now as an older man, I know that I must protect myself from the rays of the sun.
It may be my awareness of the risk of sun damage, or skin cancer. Just as much it may be that as I have gotten older, I cannot take the pain of having a sunburn as much as I could as a young man. I cannot sleep well when I have a burn.
Why You May Want to Wear Sunscreen

A few years ago, when my family started to spend the Christmas holiday in Florida, I realized that I would need to get something to protect my skin at least my face from the harmful rays of the sun.
If I didn’t take the precaution of wearing sunblock or sunscreen, I would find myself locked up inside the condo we rent since I would be too burned to enjoy the beach. Or anything else out in the sunshine for that matter.
You see I love to walk the beach in the morning, but as anyone would tell you the sun in winter and in the morning can burn you as much as the sun can mid-day or later in Florida.
So, what I did was got online and searched for reviews on such sites as Amazon to find something where the reviewer described having skin similar to mine. After determining that they did, I would read their review.
What I found during my search for an adequate sunscreen for my face was that Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 55 was highly recommended for the face.
- Non-comedogenic (won't clog pores)
I have used this product over the past several holiday seasons while in Florida, as well as when I do my walks/runs here where I live. So far, it has been one of the better recommendations that I have followed.
The Neutrogena product is a very light feeling on the face, much more a cream than a sticky gel. It also does not run into my contacts even though I do put it on my face liberally, and I am very much a “sweater” when it’s hot out.
The sunblock does absorb quickly and the bottle says that it is waterproof though I will admit that I haven’t tested that latter claim.
One of the things that I like best about it, is that my skin doesn’t feel heavy after application and that there is little to no fragrance to absorb into my contacts.
Another benefit since the SPF for this product is 55, it does allow a very low amount of sun to hit my fat cheeks, allowing for a light sun-kissed glow, but does protect me from a burn.
Oh, one added benefit is that it does not clog my pores. Even in my older years, yes I still get pimples and blackheads if I do not keep my skin clean.
For me this has been a great product for me to use as it does the job, is pretty easy to find, and is economical. I would suggest you may want to check it out if you too are prone to sunburn.
