Product Review: Neutrogena Fresh Cooling Sunblock Gel

Reviewer: S.K.Y.

Brand: Neutrogena
Name: Fresh Cooling Sunblock Gel
Size: 118 mL
Price: approx. $15 CAD

SPF Protection: 45 (also available in 30)
Format: tube

Claims:
- waterproof
- sweatproof
- oil-free

PLEASE NOTE: Because everyone's skin tone is so different and some people burn much more quickly than others, I have asked all Sun Product reviewers to NOT review sun products for their ability to protect you from getting burnt. You must use your own judgement to choose the right SPF level. Instead, we'll comment on other features (scent, oiliness, etc)

To Purr About:
- waterproof & sweatproof
- does not leave a greasy feel
- small package which is convenient
- subtle pleasant smell – unlike other sunblocks I have tried
- slightly cooling
- I did not burn

Claws Out:
- not as "cooling" as I would like
- weird flaking when being applied

Final Comments:
I was reading an article in the Toronto Star about sunblocks and after reviewing a few, they highly recommended the Neutrogena line of sunblocks, so I was pretty stocked to give this product a try. Even after being stored outside in my bag for a day during high temperatures, it was still slightly cooling which was impressive and very nice to the skin. I was out in the sun & water for the whole day and did not burn or really have to re-apply. The only thing was that it made the sand stick to me right after application, but obviously that can’t really be avoided.

Rating (out of 5):
