Healthy Defense® Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love many Neutrogena products, but not this one I am a regular user of Neutrogena products. I use both the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer and Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion SPF 15, and have for some time now. I really like them both. So when I needed a higher SPF lotion for daytime use, I turned to Neutrogena. This Healthy Defense SPF 50 product made my face extremely itchy. I tried using it on 4 different days, several days apart. to make sure there wasn't some other cause of the reaction. But the reaction only occurred a few hours after applying this product. Something in the formulation doesn't agree with my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the doctor ordered After several basal cell cancers, my doc has me using this daily. Non oily and does not cause ingrown hairs for shaving my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loyal user I have been using this lotion every day for a really long time. I works very well for me. I never get sunburned when I use this and it keeps my skin moisturized. I hope they never stop making this lotion!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I still get sunburnt I am a huge Neutrogena lover, literally the only thing I put on my face is Neutrogena and that includes makeup. I was looking for a stronger SPF face moisturizer since I spend a lot of time outside in a very sunny and warm climate. It smells strongly of "sunscreen" and feels greasy like sunscreen when I put it on my face, which is something none of the other Neutrogena lotions have ever smelt/felt like. I was willing to look past both of those things if I could use it for sun protection on specific days I would be outside. The first time I used it I was outside a few hours, I got a little sweaty but nothing over the top. I got sunburnt! I threw it in the back of my drawer and the other day I was desperate so I used it again, this time making sure I didn't accidentally wipe my face or anything like that, and again I got sunburnt! Maybe it is good for every day casual wear (though I wouldn't like the smell and grease every day) but for longer times in the sun I would highly avoid using this! I am super disappointed. I have used less SPF Neutrogena lotions for longer times in the sun doing the same activities and had much better results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday Protection This is the product I look to everyday for protection from the outdoor elements. I have been using this SPF moisturizer for at least three years. I spend a great deal of time outside. I prefer a moisturizer containing sunscreen rather than sunscreen alone. It was first recommended by my dermatologist. I love the silky feel and feel confident that I am protected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!! I usually have extremely sensitive skin. I am truly amazed! I did not have an allergic reaction or get any pimples/breakouts. I usually have to be very careful with what I put on my face. I love this product! I highly recommend this one. I have experimented with very expensive creams and department store brands but this product is my favorite!
