In the summers I work as a lifeguard so I am outside a lot. In preparation for that, I decided to buy this product. I am a long time Neutrogena lover so I thought I would give it a try. About 2 weeks ago I used it for the first time. I was volunteering at an elementary school’s field day and it was pretty sunny. I put this product on 4 times throughout the day. Safe to say, that did not due the trick.
By the time I got home my chest was beat red. I took cold showers and continued to put aloe on several times. I tried to stay out of the sun as much as I could but I am a lifeguard so I wasn’t able to avoid all contact with UV. Every time I went outside I put so much of this on and after 2 days since the original burn, it started to blister. I have never had a sunburn hurt so bad and I am honestly still confused how this happened when I used this sunscreen. Shortly after the blisters started to come the burn elevated to what seemed to be a stage 3 burn. I would attach a picture if I could but it is not pretty. I kept it covered with bandaids when outside but nothing seemed to help. It has been 2 weeks and the burn is healing very slowly.
I am from the Chicago area so the sun here is not extremely powerful like in other places. I am also fair to medium skin toned and I usually do not burn very much.
Overall, if you are looking for quality protection DO NOT USE THE SPRAY!
I now am using the Neutrogena spf 100 in the lotion and it works perfectly! The spray just was not affective.
No, I would not recommend this product
