Review: Neutrogena Clear Face SPF 55 Sunblock

Last week, I bought Neutrogena’s Clear Face SPF 55 Sunblock. I’ve been using it on my face, neck, and ears daily, and I must say that I’m very pleased!

It comes out of the bottle as a white, liquid-y substance, but goes on clear and finishes drying matte. So, it was like I never put anything on my face in the first place. Other sunscreens or facial sunblocks that I have tried always went on oily, made my face look white, or felt like I was wearing a mask. The Neutrogena one does not do this.

Here’s a look:

^ It comes out very white but liquidy.

^It’s very light and not oily.

And it rubs in to leave a matte finish without turning your skin white.

^ I really like this face sunscreen!


When I rub it into my face it kind of tingles for a few seconds and I can apply a lot of it without it feeling like a mask. I’m also usually oily in the T-zone area in general, but this doesn’t make me feel all greasy and oily during daily wear. AND I can wear it under my makeup. I hate to wear anything all over my face (so haven’t tried wearing this with foundation or powder), but I do use eye makeup and blush and it doesn’t feel layered or like I’m clogging up all my pores.

Also, during the week that I’ve been using this product, I noticed that I have had no additional pimples or break outs. So I feel like it really does stay true to it’s promise of being a break out free product. I wouldn’t say that it “clears up” your complexion if you have acne or regular breakouts, but it doesn’t make it any worse or make it so that you do get pimples, acne, or clogged pores.

I REALLY like the Neutrogena Clear Face SPF 55 Sunblock. I bought it for about $11 or $12 on sale from my local CVS/Longs. I think I also saw one that they made for sensitive skin as well.

Again, the most notable things for me are:

  • Oil-free
  • Fragrance free
  • Break-out free
  • Non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores)
  • Waterproof, sweatproof
  • Weightless matte finish so skin can breathe

Try it out if you have the time!
