Overview

How moisturizing is this?

Not at all. We believe that Neutrogena Beach Defense Water Sun Protection Sunscreen Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 70 doesn't really work as a moisturizer, as it doesn't seem to contain any moisturizing ingredients. 

What else is good about it?

Neutrogena Beach Defense Water Sun Protection Sunscreen Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 70 has an SPF of 70, which is the right SPF to use when spending lots of time outdoors and in the sun. Look out for a “broad spectrum” indication to be also protected from photoaging (i.e., wrinkles and sunspots).
