My Experience with 5 Best Sunscreens
Whenever I go out this is the product that I do not forget.
I have been using Neutrogena sunscreen for over four weeks and I absolutely love it! It is very moisturizing and feels great on my skin. I only need to apply it a little bit. The thing I liked about it is that it keeps my skin moisturized.
Though I have experimented so many sunscreens but this product took my heart away. It gave my skin a shiny look. I have an acne prone and sensitive skin. However this product treated me very nicely. It protects our skin from UVA and UVB rays. On the pack you will see these words “Broad-Spectrum”. This means it prevents ageing and skin darkening. Although it takes some time in blending but the final look is really good.
I personally feel that this sunscreen is suitable for both the season winters and summers.
