Do NOT buy WET

It pretty much ruined my 1st vacation in a year. I did not even get to go out in the sun because of the horrible reaction. So in that case, i guess it did work as I did not get any sun exposure. My face became very swollen and red. it looked very similar to what my friend looked like after she had a glycolic peal. however, with out the benefits. it took at least a week to reduce redness and puffiness then i broke out all over my face terribly. this is my first allergic reaction to any product. neutrogena has been one of my staple products for 30 plus years.....what happened ????? i would love and believe i deserve an explanation. i notice it is not for sale anymore in cream form. thank you for that

I bought this product because I thought of Neutrogena as a trusted name-brand. After one day of using this product my skin broke out in itchy bumps and my face swelled up an alarming amount. And on top of all that I still got a little sunburned despite applying the sunscreen as directed. After days of taking Benadryl and applying ice packs I am almost back to normal. Very disappointed in this product that is "dermatologist recommended" ... I have NEVER had this kind of reaction before and am afraid to use any other products again because the reaction was so severe. I would not recommend this product unless you already use it and know that you do not react to it. I am very upset that this product that is supposed to protect my skin has caused damage to it. I would prefer having used no sunscreen at all if I knew this would be the result of using it.

We spend several days a week on the lake with our five kids and our favorite sunscreen is Wet. It is great for repeat applications. We never sting, no sunburn and there has been zero reaction. I am surprised by the negative reviews. I highly recommend it for people that spend a lot of time in the sun and water.

I haven't had any issues with burning with this sunscreen and I really like how it feels and seeing the 'beads' of water repel off my skin as this product is decently waterproof. You MUST however apply before sun exposure and more importantly, you have to pay attention that enough spray is coming out to cover your skin completely. If it's clear it isn't enough. Spray hard and directly until you see white product, then slather on skin. Anything less is like nothing at all, which isn't the brand's fault but the consumer's.

Very disappointed in this sunscreen. I applied it to my children SEVERAL times throughout the day and by mid afternoon my 7 year old was crying with a sunburn. Other years, I've bought 'cheaper', other brands of sunscreen and usually only apply it once maybe twice and my children are okay. This year I thought I'd be safe and buy a 'better' brand. My brother passed away from skin cancer and I worry about my children. I will not be buying this ever again and am sorry I wasted so much money.

We applied beforehand and reapplied every 50 minutes (I have redheaded children). I was obsessed about reapplying while on the beach so much so that my nephew started running from me. We were ALL burned. I used TWO entire bottles on one afternoon and we were all burned. It ruined the next two days of our trip. Maybe you can use it if you already have tanned skinned. NOT GOOD STUFF. Also applied on wet skin where it felt like it spread better. BURNED BADLY.

I have very sensitive and fair skin, so I thought Neutrogena sunblock would be a good choice. Various Neutrogena products have typically worked for me in the past. Unfortunately, I followed the directions and applied liberally. I then spent time in the sun, only to break out in bumps and a red rash everywhere I applied it. Thank goodness it was only my arms. Don't fall for the hypoallergenic tag line on here. I know I won't again.

As with all sunscreen, you have to put it on before going out into the sun. We have used this sunscreen since it was available and it has been wonderful. We have a backyard pool and the kids swim everyday - have never been burned but that is because I apply it to them AT LEAST ten to fifteen minutes before they head outside, then I do reapply every couple of hours while swimming and love that can do so without them having to dry off.

Horrible Reaction

I wish I had read these reviews before I bought this product. I took this on a vacation to the Mediterranean and it nearly ruined my vacation. I broke out in a rash and blisters all over my arms and legs - which I have never done before. I had to stay out of the sun during half my trip! It took nearly a week of hydrocortisone treatment to get the bumps down and relieve the itching. Don't use this stuff!

This product should be pulled from the market. We applied, and reapplied, this product very liberally before and during a day on the lake. Everyone that used it, including three children, got burned to a crisp! The one that used the generic sunscreen did not. This is absolutely the WORST sunscreen on the market. Neutrogena has lost a customer for good. Never will I trust this brand again.

I applied to myself and my six year old. Then in a five hour period I applied it twice more. We used a lot. Had a lot of skin to cover 3 times each. She is lightly burned(she is not as fair skinned as I am by nature) and I am burned seriously and in pain. I used another brand, but a store clerk doing a display talked this one up. She was wrong.

Being a rower I am often in the sun for 6+ hours daily with no opportunity for reapplication. I put this on about half an hour before getting out on the water and it is great! My skin has not burned at all and it is not oily like many other sunscreens. Highly recommended!

Worst spray sunscreen ever. I sprayed myself and my boyfriend 4 times (We used more than half the bottle) and we both came out looking like tomatoes. There were lines on our bodies where the spray landed, but nothing else. Use a cream based sunscrean instead.

After using this product I got burnt and had a serious reaction with a rash and affected my eyes, My sister didn't get a rash but was sunburnt. It's not worth the risk to use this product!
