Neutrogena Cool Dry Sport (Review)

23 06 2015

Summer’s officially started and that means many of you will likely be spending hours upon hours outdoors in some way, shape or form. Whether it’s at the beach, by the lake, at your kid’s ball game, or in your neighbor’s backyard, summer = get outside!

Last summer, I spent every weekend on my bike for hours upon hours. This summer, I haven’t been doing quite as much of that, but I still get outside when I can and brave the stifling Florida humidity. Every time I head out though, I make sure to put on sunscreen. No. Matter. What. Years as a lifeguard on the beach patrol got me in that habit, and it is an incredibly important one to have!

When the kind folks at Neutrogena reached out to me and asked if I’d be willing to try out some of their new CoolDry Sport sunscreen, I happily obliged. I’ve been a loyal Neutrogena sunscreen fan since I started doing triathlons. The Neutrogena Sport Face oil-free lotion has been my go to, along with the Sport spray. Yes, I am that girl that carries two sunscreens: one for the face and one for the rest of the body. #highmaintenance.

The new CoolDry line has MICROMESH™ technology, which allows sweat to pass through the sunscreen without compromising the full strength SPF protection. It eliminates that “sticky” feeling you have when you sweat through your sunscreen. Basically, it breathes better than other formulations of sunscreen. It’s highly durable, lasting through those sweaty workouts, which are pretty much a given during the Florida summer.

I was able to try out the CoolDry Sport SPF 70 lotion on my Smoky Mountain hike a few weeks ago. The lotion was thick and a little more difficult to spread than I was used to, so I felt like I was using more to cover all the areas I needed. Once on though, the lotion felt pretty good. Throughout the afternoon as we hiked, I was sweating a ton, but not once did I get burned.

IMG_9775I also tried out the SPF 30 CoolDry spray on a few bike rides. First, I’m a big fan of spray sunscreens. When you’re trying to apply sunscreen to your back when you’re home alone, it certainly makes life easier. I most recently used the sunscreen for a 1.5 hour ride in mid-morning, so it was definitely getting hot by the time my ride ended. I was sweating a lot, but the sunscreen did it’s job. I didn’t have any burn, and my body was able to perspire as it should to keep me cool. I’d say thats a win, win!

So, as you head out there for whatever summer activity you have planned, don’t forget your sunscreen! And, if you’re looking for a sunscreen that you won’t sweat off in the first 5 minutes of your workout, grab a bottle of Neutrogena CoolDry. It will work as hard as you do during that workout!

I don’t sweat, I sparkle!

Full disclosure: I was provided with two bottles of sunscreen. All opinions are my own!

Thanks for the tip on the sunscreen! I’ve been using another Neutrogena one but I think it’s a “kids” kind since that’s what I have on hand, I’ll check this out!
