1 Answer


Although Neutrogena Sport Face Sunblock Lotion SPF 70+ claims to be non-comedogenic, there have been numerous reports of this sunblock causing or aggravating acne breakouts. Neutrogena Sport Face Sunblock is oil-free, but oil-free is not enough to prevent breakouts. 

It might still work for acne prone skin if used in conjunction with strong acne treatments, but it is not worth the risk. For acne prone skin, you’d be better off using a sunscreen without the potential irritants and extra ingredients this product has.

Neutrogena Sport Face Sunblock SPF 70+ ingredients:

Water, Silica, Adipic Acid/Diethylene Glycol/Glycerin Crosspolymer, Octadecene/MA Copolymer, Benzyl Alcohol, BHT, Acrylates/Dimethicone Copolymer, Saccharomyces Potassium Ferment, Artemia Extract, Saccharomyces Zinc Ferment, Bisabolol, Saccharomyces Magnesium Ferment, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Saccharomyces Calcium Ferment, Saccharomyces Sodium Ferment, Cyclopentasiloxane, Ethylhexylglycerin, Acrylates/C10 30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG 100 Stearate, Beeswax, Triethamolamine, Diethylhexyl 2,6 Naphthalate, Disodium EDTA, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Methylisothiazolinone

Here is a list of sunscreens in India unlikely to cause breakouts.
