What It Is:
Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+*
Why This Should Be in Your Bag:
We’re right smack dab in the middle of summer, so what better to review than sunscreen? So many people overlook this crucial step in their skincare routine. Sunscreen helps your skin look youthful and stay healthy and reduces your risk of nasty stuff like skin cancer. It’s a must for everyone!
One reason a lot of people don’t wear sunscreen everyday is the icky feeling and white cast it can leave on skin. Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+* is a powerhouse sunscreen at SPF 50 and it’s made by a leading skincare brand, so I was really excited to give it a test drive. Kiehl’s claims that it “fights up to 90% of skin aging, including lines and wrinkles and uneven texture and tone”.
How To Use It:
Kiehl’s suggest to shake this sunscreen up before applying liberally on all sun-exposed skin. If you have a regular skincare routine, apply this after your moisturizer, but before makeup.
CC Rating: B
I’ve been using the Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ for a few weeks now and have enjoyed the added benefit of sun protection that wears comfortably under my makeup. My biggest issue with sunscreen is that it usually makes me get super shiny and while my face doesn’t remain the matte finish that I prefer when I use this product, it’s not as shiny as with regular sunscreen. I really can’t speak to the claims of it fighting 90% of aging because a) I don’t have “non-screened” skin to compare it to and b) I’ve only used it for a handful of weeks.
Overall, this is a nice sunscreen. It’s very comfortable and easy to rub into the skin. Am I blown away? Not really. Are there options just as good for less money? Perhaps. However, those who spend lots of time in the sun and want to keep their face looking fresh may love Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+. It’s available on the Kiehl’s website for $38.
