Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Sunscreen SPF 50 review

Is the face version worth the extra cost, or should you just go for the original? Plus, how this product compares to Aveeno's, which has a virtually identical ingredient list.

Neutrogena is a master of marketing: “Sheer Zinc” is a great phrase. Old-school zinc was pasty—”sheer zinc” is nothing like that. It’s next-generation. It’s sheer. It’s mineral-based.

Aveeno Positively Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 review

I love trying zinc oxide sunscreens. Over the course of 2019, I’ve tried quite a few, including: Bare Republic Face Sunscreen SPF 30, All Good Sunscreen Butter SPF 50+, Coppertone Pure & Simple Sunscreen SPF 50, Badger Clear Zinc Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30, Hawaiian Sol SPF 50 Reef Safe Sunscreen. And that’s just listing the solely zinc oxide-based ones. I’ve also tried other physical sunscreens that contain a mixture of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
