All about: Neutrogena's new Beach Defence Sunscreen


Finally we’re seeing a little sun today, which for me is a reminder that summer is - maybe? - on its way and new sunscreen needs to go on the shopping list. Most last twelve months max after being opened, so if you’re still got some sitting around in your beach bag from this time last year then chuck it - ASAP!
That also means I get a few new sunscreen formulas coming across my desk, and one that I can tell is a winner is Neutrogena’s new Beach Defence from the dermatologist recommended suncare brand. With SPF 50 it is high enough to really make a difference, and works to combat the effect of prolonged exposure to water and the sun, both of which affect the permeability of the skin’s barrier and make us more susceptible to UV rays. It’s formulated with the brand’s famous Helioplex Technology - which harnesses the power of two sunscreens, Azovenzone and Oxybenxzone - so forms a broad spectrum UVA and UVB protective barrier that has been clinically proven time and time again to help skin defend against summer elements. It not only protects skin against photodamage (yes!), premature aging (double yes!), and sunburn (essential); but even reduces the amount of free radicals released into the skin - amazing.
From an initial play it’s also lightweight on the skin and fast absorbing, and has a 4-hour sweat and water-resistant formula. It’s also available in two family sized formulations – a convenient and easy to use spray for effective sun protection on the go, or the sizeable lotion that is perfect to have on hand for sharing. The fact that it’s hypoallergenic, oil-free and PABA free makes it even more kid friendly too.
Both retail for $24.99 and are in store now.
