Consumer Alert

I got this lotion with sunscreen, thinking I'd be doing my face a favor. I live in sunny Arizona and my mom has had some skin cancer on her face, so I thought a little extra protection wouldn't hurt... but then I read the bottle.

Seriously? How can you advertise SPF and then put a a sunburn alert on the back? I would understand if it was something along the lines of "this doesn't replace sunscreen"... but it outright says that it may cause burning.

What the hell Neutrogena!?

  4. Ahh, the importance of reading labels once again rears it's ugly head. That stuff is NOT cheap either!

  6. What next? Cough medicine that may cause a scratchy throat? Antacids that may cause acid reflux? Hair dye that may cause exfoliation?
