Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+: Review and Swatches

Summer time is a time to step out in the sun and bask in the sunlight. But it is also the time when you get tanned most. I am someone who can get tanned severely just by spending 5 minutes in sunlight, and believe me I spend a lot of time out there. 

While other girls cover themselves or hide under an umbrella, I prefer walking without one, even though it is always in my bag. For me, sunscreen is a major weapon against tanning. After trying few from Lakme, Lotus herbals and Biotique, this year, I'm gonna try Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+. Let's begin the review!

According to the brand
Neutrogena® Ultra Sheer® Dry-Touch Sunscreen SPF 50+ is dermatologist-tested formula that contains Helioplex® Technology. It helps prevent damaging UVA rays from penetrating deep under skin's surface. Dry-Touch technology helps leaving a clean, lightweight, non-shiny finish. Serious sun protection never felt this light on your skin. This product features Helioplex®, a breadth of stabilized sunscreen technologies that delivers superior protection from the sun.


Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ is available in two variants.

Rs. 549 for 88ml (I got it for 399)

Rs. 175 for 30ml


You can read the entire list of ingredients on the back of box.


It came in a sturdy see through plastic box with brand information mentioned all over. The tube nozzle was sealed with a foil like piece. What I love about the tube is that it has a matte finish and a sturdy cap which closes firmly. You can easily throw in your bag and carry it around.

How to use product

Apply your Neutrogena sunscreen liberally on all the exposed area 15 – 20 minutes before stepping out in the sun.

Product Claims

  • It's lightweight
  • Waterproof, sweatproof, resists rub off
  • Non-comedogenic (won't clog pores) 
  • Oil free and PABA free
  • Provides ultra-light clean feel
  • Ultra-light and non-shiny finish
  • Provides superior balanced broad spectrum skin protection against skin aging UVA & UVB rays

My Take

I sweat a lot so I wanted something which does not flow away with my sweat. Anything and everything that clogs my pores will make me sweat more. Also, I have combination skin which requires a balanced skin care. Since it is non comedogenic, I loved that it didn't made me sweat a lot. Cream is a bit runny and superwhite, however it gets absorbed pretty well on rubbing. It will not leave any white marks or traces on your skin. Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ does give a smooth matte finish on the skin, but does not make it look or feel dry. It did not make my skin look or feel sticky or oily even during after hours. 


  • Smooth matte finish
  • Broad spectrum sun protection against UVA and UVB rays
  • Does not make you sweat
  • Waterproof and sweatproof
  • Travel friendly
  • Good quantity for the price.
  • Considerably less tan as compared to other sunscreens that I have used. 
  • Does not make my skin look oily or sticky. 


  • Price maybe a negative point for few.
  • You might need to re-apply it after 4-5 hours. 
  • Consistency is a bit runny. 

Hope you loved the review. If you have used Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+, do share your thoughts with me!

Lots of Love!!!
