The packaging of Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ is very sleek and smart. It is a small, handy white tube with sky blue edge and semi-transparent screw cap. The opening is not very large and it comes with a sliver foil seal for ensuring the first-time use. The tube can be squeezed very easily to take out the required amount of product. The cap of the tube is tight enough to make it convenient to take with you during travel.

My Take on Neutrogena Ultra-Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+:

The product is milky white in color with a thick, creamy texture. Apparently, the consistency may seem to be too heavy for the skin as most of the similar products are found to be runny. But it is actually not like that. It is absorbed by the skin after a little massage and doesn’t feel heavy at all.  It suits my dry skin very well and I was quite surprised to see how well it moisturizes my face! There is a very light floral fragrance, which fades away within 15 to 30 minutes of application.

The dry-touch claim of the company is true to some extent. Well, I’m not saying that this sunblock makes my skin oily or greasy. It definitely gives a clean feel without a shiny look. In fact, I like the fact that it doesn’t leave a whitish cast like most other sunblocks available in the market. But you may not get that dry-touch and perfect matte finish. Rather, it offers a dewy appearance with clean, non-shiny finish and I totally love it.

The sun protection claim of Neutrogens Ultra sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock is completely true. Earlier, my skin used to tan a lot. But I’ve not experienced sun tanning or burning once I started using it. SPF 50+ is just perfect for Indian summers. In addition, it offers both UVA and UVB protections, which are added bonus. It is waterproof and sweatproof as claimed by the company. No matter how long I remain outside, it doesn’t make my skin sweaty or sticky. And yes, there is no need of applying it again and again.
