Save On a Water-Based Sunscreen That Doesn't Feel Like Sunscreen

Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost water gel sunscreen is a pretty good facsimile of Biore’s cult favorite (and personally life changing) Watery Essence sunscreen, with one notable difference: It’s actually sold in the U.S.


You can read more about the water-based sunscreens in my recent review, but spoiler alert: They completely changed my perceptions about what sunscreen can be. Amazon’s currently offering the best price we’ve ever seen on the SPF 50 version ($26 for three bottles), or if you can get by with SPF 30 (I’m jealous), you’ll only have to pay $16. It’s still fairly expensive as sunscreen goes, but once you try it, you’ll never buy anything else.
