More description from the box itself.

On the box there is also direction to use, caution reminder and storage method. Pretty much explained everything clearly of Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Complete UV Waterlight Lotion SPF 50+ PA+++ with Helioplex.

It has pointy narrow nozzle which is very suitable as the texture is light and runny. With this nozzle, it’s more hygienic and it helps to avoid spillage.

The liquid is definitely comes in a lilac/lavender shade. Such shade helps to brighten up skin tone which is recommended if you are looking for glowing complexion.

Experience?

I use it regularly on the daily basis and I also applied around my eye area to brighten up. I was afraid that it could be too rich or heavy like how we could find in common sun blocks but this has proof me wrong.  It’s so lightweight that its easily absorb by my skin and my skin felt powdery smooth right after. My skin tolerate well although it contains alcohol, I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone if you have sensitive skin or allergy.The shade doesn’t leave any white cast and no shiny effect too.

Verdict?

I like it that its so lightweight and doesn’t feel sticky during the application. With the scorching sun and humidity in where I am, I reckon this is suitable for normal to combination skin and it protects my skin very well, I did not get any tanner on my face which shows that this product is doing it’s job. Although it claimed to be oil-free but it doesn’t have oil-controlling properties. My skin starts to oil up starting on T-zone area after 1-2 hours from using it. Although it absorbs so fast, it doesn’t dry up my skin which shows that it provides enough moisture despite the powdery finish. I have acne-prone skin and this doesn’t worsen my skin condition. Using it around the eye area is also safe and what’s best is it helps to brighten up a little bit on the dark circles.
