Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lobsters & Candy Canes I was so excited to use the new Beach Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 70. The scent was fresh and made putting on sunscreen quite pleasant. I applied evenly and before I went to the beach. I reapplied after 80 minutes as recommended. Later that night it was clear that I had the worst sunburn I can remember. Not only was my skin the color of a lobster the coverage was that of a candy cane. I had splotches and was in quite a bit of pain from the burn. Though the smell is great I do not recommend this product. I left the beach looking like I hadn't even put on any sunscreen.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Allergic reaction painful skin rash for Mom and I My Mom and I both have gotten painful slightly itchy rashes from this sunscreen. We have never had an allergic reaction to sunscreen, but this causes painful rash on us both. I tried it 4 months later with the same results, because I thought something else had caused the rash. I'm not sure if it's an allergic reaction or photo allergic reaction. I usually LOVE Neutrogena products. I don't appreciate Neutrogena's response to the other allergic reaction reports, with a that is not a typical response to our products. Looks like it is a common response.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sun protection My boyfriend and I went on vacation to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic in March. We took this sunscreen with us to the beach. Great product! No sunburns and not sticky which is great for the beach so the sand doesn't stick to you. Plus didn't make my face break out! Would recommend this to anyone!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT PURCHASE! If I could give this product zero stars, I would. My husband used the product on our first day in Hawaii. He is very fair and applies sunscreen liberally and reapplies. We were outside for over 3 hours, and he reapplied once each hour. That night, his entire chest and arms were splotchy sunburned. We assumed it was something in the way he applied, although being 51 and fair-skinned, he's not new to sunscreen. The next day, both my husband and daughter used the 70 SPF. My daughter is fair also, and knowing we would be on the beach instead of the pool, we chose the 70 for both. Again, we applied liberally as directed and reapplied. She is burned splotchy, and is very uncomfortable ruining her night, and next few days. I have photos of both, along with the lot #. My husband, from day 2, is as red as I've ever seen him in over 20 years, and has blisters. This after reapplying once per hour?? I purchased this product based on review from consumer reports. Epic fail. It is clear that the product offered NO protection. We have lost at least two days of enjoying Hawaii and a refund doesn't really seem like sufficient compensation. We will never purchase again. The comments on this page have been similar, and yet Neutrogena replied that this is not typical. I beg to differ. We will supply photos of the burns. I do not, under any circumstances, recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great protection, smells good too I used this product at the Jersey shore. I am very pale and it prevented burning thoroughly. I sprayed it on liberally and did not need to rub in or spread by hand. Just make sure not to skip any spots! I liked the smell which was a little bit lemony...much better than other sunscreens.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Burned in mild weather I do not recommend this product for use at the beach. Applied it as recommended several times throughout the day. Despite the mild weather, I burned worse than I ever have in 25+ years of frequent visits to the beach. Very uneven coverage. I now look like a spotted lobster! If left with no alternative, I recommend very heavy (dripping) application more frequently than the every 80 minutes recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy, reliable, but feels hot? I wonder why so many reviewers got sunburned. Perhaps they just sprayed it on and didn't rub it in evenly? My family of 4 has had no issues and find it easy to apply and feels good to wear. No greasy feel, no dripping when you sweat. We've only used the 30 for a few hours at a time at soccer games, but I will use 50 when at the beach all day. However, I have noticed that most sunblocks make the surface of my skin feel cooler even in direct sun, and this one does not. I definitely feel like I might be burning, but I never do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Splotchy sunburn We had an outing planned to a ride and water park for the day. We applied this sunscreen liberally before entering the park. We applied it again frequently throughout the day. Not only spraying it on, but rubbing it in. As the day progressed, myself, a 13 year old and a 12 year old girl got progressively redder and redder. By the end of the day, we were all very red, but not everywhere. There were splotches where the sunscreen worked and places where it did not. I am sure that Neutrogena is going to respond that this is not normal for this sunscreen, but I spent a lot of money on a multipack at Costco for this stuff to only have it not work? Now, the day after, I am blotchy and will be returning this sunscreen.
