I have been wearing the Neutrogena Clear Face Sunscreen breakout free SPF 55 sunblock for two weeks on my acne prone skin. Today, I am sharing my experience using the liquid-lotion sunblock.
Lately, I’ve been having frequent breakouts. I feel it is a combination of high stress and adjusting to a new schedule. Now that I’m acclimated, I’m finally spending more time outdoors. My bareminerals Mineral Veil SPF 25 wasn’t cutting it for swimming and sweat so I decided to give the waterproof Neutrogena Clear Face sunscreen a shot.
Neutrogena Clear Face Sunscreen
The main reason I wanted to try this sunscreen is because I breakout a lot. One of the main oils that breaks me out is coconut oil, which happens to be very popular in skincare products at the moment. That’s why the oil-free label stuck out to me. It was relief when the Neutrogena Clear Face sunscreen didn’t create new pimples or aggravate my existing blemishes. It is also very lightweight & dry to touch; no slimy face here!
But how does it look?
This blemish free sunscreen is very white and rather thick when dispensed. However, it blends in well so there isn’t a chalky white cast left on your skin. In fact, I can layer make up over the sunscreen without getting a greasy look. I was surprised when I wore it under foundation all day to a track race and my face never felt or looked oily.
I would say it is definitely sweat proof and waterproof because the thick texture really adheres to your skin; it needs to be reapplied if swimming for an extended time but is fine if just a few minutes. Because of it’s staying power, I suggest using a good cleanser at the end of the day to remove it.
I appreciate that the scent is light and non-irritating (I’m ridiculous sensitive to certain floral scents to the point of nausea; i.e. Juicy Couture). The Neutrogena Clear Face SPF 55 was about $10 at Target. I don’t know about you but I can’t understand how there are sunblocks brands selling for $30+. I’m happy this one was created for acne prone skin at an affordable price.
I’m going to continue using the Neutrogena Clear Skin sunscreen, but what is your favorite sunscreen for acne prone skin?
