Suitable for daily protection, it contain Vitamin E, a skin conditioning anti oxidant and leaves an invisible finish on skin even under makeup. Our Dry-Touch technology ensures this sunscreen dries with a non-greasy, lightweight finish. Plus its mild for sensitive skin."
The sunscreen is packaged in a 59 ml plastic squeeze tube with flip-top lid. It has a sunscreen scent, but it's not at all strong, there's also a powdery note, so it's quite pleasant and not overpowering.
The lotion is quite thick in consistency.
It was apparent that this sunscreen was zinc-based as soon as it touched my skin. The lotion goes on easily enough, but gives me a thick white cast that just doesn't seem to blend well. On my light-medium skin tone, I look like ET. If you've seen the movie, I look like him in that scene when he is sick and dying.
I didn't give up hope, though, because this was going to be dry to the touch. Nope, stays tacky all day, not as sticky, but certainly not dry to the touch either. The white cast does fade, but only slightly so I still look sickly.
The Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Lotion is a fail for me, actually a huge disappointment. Sorry Neutrogena, but I must be honest! (Maybe you should be saying sorry to me, lol!) The only reason I will continue to use this tube is that their claim that it is fine under makeup is true. I don't need a primer when using this sunscreen and the makeup seems to hide the pale mess underneath.
