Review: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock SPF 55
It is so hard for us dark skintoned ladies to find a sunscreen that has high SPF and does not create a white mask effect. My search is officially over! I am in love with the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock SPF 55. It retails for approx. $13 at any drugstore (CVS, Walgreens, Rite aid etc.)
It absorbs very quickly and gives a sheen (not greasy at all, but not completely matte). It's perfect for my dry skin. Foundation goes on so well over this sunscreen and seems to stay on longer, so this sunscreen acts like a primer for me as well. The only negative part is the amount of product/size of the bottle - its quite small, and I am sure I will finish the sunscreen in 2-3 weeks.
