No well-dressed complexion would ever consider leaving the house sans sunscreen - summer or winter, rain or shine - but most sun protection creams with any heft tend to feel too greasy, look too chalky, or, if they feel good and aren't slimy, cost a fortune.
Not Neutrogena's new Ultra Sheer Liquid SPF 70.
For $12 a bottle, the sunblock provides massive protection, but with a minimal footprint: it absorbs within a minute or two, and leaves a healthy-looking sheen. And yes, makeup layers right on over it (a tip: it lasts longer if you also apply a primer and allow that to sit for about 2 minutes prior to your maquillage application).
Neutrogena also recently launched their CLINICAL line, inspired by your body's internal electrical signaling system, or bioelectricity:
Bioelectric signals diminish as we age, decreasing cell-to-cell communication which translates into less collagen and more signs of aging, especially wrinkles and sagging skin. NEUTROGENA CLINICAL is a two-part system: a serum containing ion-mineral conductors and beneficial minerals, which are, in turn, activated by the moisturizer; together the serum and moisturizer help restore positive ion flow, reawakening skin cells in areas that are collagen-depleted for better facial definition. In a four-week clinical trial, over 90% of the subjects recorded visibly improved skin firmness, and a full 100% saw improvement in lines, firming and elasticity. Available at Neutrogena.com.
