Kiehl's Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ Sunscreen (review)

Kiehl's Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+

An ultra light sunscreen formula for everyday use.
  • Helps to fight up to 90% of skin aging, including lines and wrinkles and uneven texture and tone.
  • Delivers outstanding efficacy against UVA & UVB rays on the skin’s surface.
  • Oil-free, fragrance-free, non-comedogenic 
  • Dermatologist-tested for sensitive skin
I don't have to say much about this very amazing, must-have product when it comes to skincare.
Sunscreens are one of those essential skincare products that should be part of one's daily routine irrespective of season, place and skintone.  The benefits of sunscreens are endless and the internet is loaded with all the amazing information one needs to know.

Color: White 

Texture and Consistency: Light weight, non-sticky, non-greasy, not to thick nor too goopy liquid. 

Scent/Fragrance: I love the fact that this one does not smells like typical sunscreen. It smells pretty pleasant. 

Application: This is a light weight sunscreen. It spreads easily and gets absorbed pretty quickly. I apply it 'liberally' on my lightly moisturized skin 30 minutes before going out in the sun. I also apply it under makeup and absolutely had no issue with makeup sliding off. It is recommended to shake the bottle well before application.

Feel on Skin: The sunscreen sets almost instantly. It does not feel greasy or sticky like other sunscreens. There is no chalky, ashy white cast on the face. Does not make the face shiny nor clogs pores. No breakouts! It does not makes my eyes itchy or watery. No burning sensation either.

Effect on Skin: With liberal and constant use, I assume it is doing its job of skin protection from both UVA and UVB rays. Hopefully in future I won't get crow's feet and wrinkles.

Packaging: Fuss free, plastic bottle with flip top cap. No pump.

Longevity: I reapply after 80 minutes if I stay that long in sun. Usually the pool.


Verdict: Amazing product! My absolute favorite sunscreen is SHISEIDO Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion+ Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ For Face/Body and I still enjoying using that one, but this Kiehl's Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ Sunscreen  is my current favorite. I find Shiseido one to be tad more drying and turning more white on me. It makes me look more ashy. But I still love it. With only good things to say about this sunscreen, I find this to be 'staple' in my skincare routine. A little on pricey side but worth every penny in my opinion. Do ask for a tiny sample when you are at the Kiehl's store next time and give it a try!

The product is available at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale's
