Sunscreen Sunblock Review: Neutrogena - Spectrum 100+ SPF

Sunscreen Sunblock Review - Neutrogena Spectrum Sunblock, SPF 100

I have been unable to tolerate chemical-based sunscreens for some time now, but I decided to give a few a try since many companies are formulating chemical sunscreens to be photostable (meaning that sun filtering agents will retain their ability to continue protecting the skin upon exposure to sunlight) because the FDA has finally decided to regulate this industry.

  • Photostable now with changed formula
  • Broad spectrum - UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) protection
  • Not shiny or reflective although there’s a bit of a dewey sheen
  • Does not feel greasy
  • Didn’t cause break outs, but I applied only twice

  • Unsafe - EWG rating of 7: “High health concerns… Developmental/reproductive toxicity, Endocrine disruption, Allergies/immunotoxicity, Persistence and bioaccumulation, Enhanced skin absorption, Biochemical or cellular level changes…”
  • Long list of ingredients that look scary, and not just to me
  • Second day of use, I developed a bad rash with small welts and itching; couldn’t get this off fast enough!
  • Fragrance added is too strong for m
  • Don't like the cap; a pump would be better
