My Take On Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Dry Touch Sunscreen:
Packaging: The product comes in the usual neutrogena sunscreen tube quite similar to other sunscreen in this brand. Is travel-friendly and easy to use.
Texture: The product is quite creamy but heavy at the same time. Isn’t really lightweight and you can definitely feel it (and see it too) on your skin.
How to use and after-effects: To use, apply generously over your moisturizer and under your makeup 15 minutes before heading out in the sun.
I have used the other dry touch sunblock from the same brand (the one without zinc) and quite loved it performance-wise and texture-wise too on my combination skin that is more towards oily-side in the summers. Since this launched in India, I had to give this one too a try! The sunscreen feels quite creamy while you apply and settles to a shiny layer with white caste; this is something I hate in a sunscreen! Performance wise, the product is brilliant and works well under makeup but one cannot wear this on its own considering how shiny and whiter it looks. I tried mixing it up with my moisturizer and it worked really well that way! If you are experiencing the same heavy-greasy texture on your skin with white caste, try mixing it with your moisturizer. I have mildly sensitive skin and this hasn’t broken me out at all.
