Most Helpful Positive Review Fabulous
I love this product. I live in Hawaii, so sunscreen is a must. This is very light, does not irritate my eyes and my makeup goes on a little smoother. This is really worth the money. After buying others and returning them due to irritation this is great. Not thick or greasy.
Most Helpful Critical Review Only Suitable for oily skin
I applaud Kiehls for expanding their line of sun-protection products. While this product does provide a very high UV defense that is broad spectrum, its texture is awful. It's greasy and makes your face shiny. But what's worse, is despite it feeling and looking so greasy, it dries the H*LL out of your skin. So if you have oily skin, this is fine. If you have dry skin, this product is a nightmare. I tried to apply it in a combination of the sunscreen with a little of the ultra facial lotion to make it better. I even put that combination OVER a layer of the ultra facial cream I already had on my face, and even those two moisturizers couldn't make my face feel better with this stuff.
I really hope kiehls comes out with another sun care product that's suitable for dry skin types, and that offers just as much protection as this one.

This product is great but came with a faulty lid that leaks. This product needs to be shaken prior to use resulting in leaking and change in texture after a few days.

DaphneJJ from Orlando, FL
This fluid spreads smoothly, is iight and non-greasy. With other solar protectant, I feel like I do have that additional coat over my face; not with this.
Did not change the texture of my skin
Lovely from Riverside, ca
Don't like this product. If u sweat it will burn and irritate your eyes.
Best purchase ever
Drenee from Manteca, Ca
I love how light-weight this product is....the initial application is white but it fades into the skin leaving a slight dewy result. It's the perfect product for someone who doesn't like heavy product for the face. I 100% recommend
Love this brand, not really this product
Emily from Texas
I have several Kiehl's products, I am in love with this brand and have the best skin I've had in a long time. Some things I deal w/ are being acne-prone, oily, rosacea and very sensitive. I've been doing some research on rosacea and have read that wearing a daily SPF can help with redness (among many other benefits, of course). I wanted to make sure I was getting a product from a brand I believe in because face sunscreen has been tricky for me. It's usually greasy and breaks me out significantly. I spent the extra money for this product and am unfortunately not very pleased. Like other comments, this product does ball up on the face. I find that I have to let my daily moisturizer sink in for AT LEAST 10 minutes before I can put on my sunscreen. And the more you try to massage it into the face, the more it will ball up. Other than that, my MAJOR complaint about this product is that after applying and about an hour after it's on my face, my skin starts to burn. It feels as though I have a mild sunburn across my entire face where you can feel the discomfort and burn. Again, I have sensitive skin and apparently it's just not reacting well with me. I've gone a few days without it and then tried it again and it is 100% this sunscreen. I'm out side of my return time so I'm stuck with it and really disappointed. I hate having to purchase products to figure out what works for my skin. Just writing this in-depth review for those of you with the same kind of skin as me...just to think twice. I will say, it does eventually sink into my skin and does not leave it greasy so that's a positive.
adri from CA
this is the best sunscreen i've ever tried. my face burns so easily, and i got burnt only once using this, and it was my fault, not theirs. it is a little oily, but it works wonders. but after going into water or sweating a lot, make sure to reapply! i found out about this product through friends, and i recommend it to friends now. this is a must have!!
Why did they have to change what was a great product?
dhtravel from Los Gatos, CA, USA
My husband used Kiehl's Facial Fuel religiously because he needed a non-greasy product with high SPF 50. When Kiel's discontinued that product we ordered this product thinking it would be a good replacement. This was not the case at all. This product has such a strong oder that we wonder if it is rancid. Does that happen? I would never want to put this on my face and he doesn't either. Why do companies have to discontinue products with a loyal following. What a disappointment :-( I am writing this review on his behalf.
Best Sunscreen for Me
Be the Best from NV
Since it is new to me, I am still trying to learn the right amount to apply. Too much (first try) and I had to blot it to make it just right. Second day, it was fine. It does not leave a white cast, definitely a pro. For its high quality, the price is reasonable!
Absolutely the best sunscreen!
Charlotte from Jacksonville Texas
My husband takes medication that makes him very sensitive to the sun. He has never burned while using this product. Never without it!
Good product but no good service
Rebecca2019 from undisclosed
I have been using this brand all the time, and I occasionally go shopping online, but every time I buy a product online, they don't give me enough samples. Every time I pick three samples, they only give me two or one, and there is no Explain why, not to replenish me. So I prefer to go to the store to buy.
I would buy it again
onthetrain01 from California
I have a combination and mature skin. I was hesitant to try it because some of the reviews stated that it was disappointing. I have porous skins and I really need a product that is non-comedogenic and this product is supposed to have that property so I decided to try it anyway. It was fine; not exceptionally good but ok to keep.
Idk what to do
Mommylovingmakeup from MN
I've worn this fine under makeup when going to work, I'm not in the sun at all when Im at work. It doesn't effect my makeup or application at all but when I wear it alone and go into the sun, I get itchy and develop a red rash on my face and chest(where ever I applied it) I don't get what's going on. I'm very disappointed. Especially with the price and it's too late to return it because when I first bought it I would just wear it under my makeup. Since summer has started I've been spending more time outside and this happens every time. I had no problems until I started wearing it alone in the sun. Will never purchase again.
Eckharre from Charlotte, NC
I am super sensitive to the sun and prone to break outs....and I LOVE this sunscreen. I mix it in with Kiehls moisturizer every morning. The consistency is awesome - light yet actually works! Perfect for everyday use.
Lbadbad from undisclosed
Every single time I wore the sunscreen, I got a sunburn. I?ve never had that before with any other sunscreen. I usually love all Kiehl?s products but this one is a no.
Love everything but the price
Jfold from Ypsilanti MI
This lotion is amazing. It is lightweight, unscented, applies very easily, and leaves a matte finish. Whereas most sunscreens are difficult to rub into the skin, this one applies very easily without leaving white steaks. It is also exceptionally lightweight and leaves zero shine, making it great for men. This is one of my favorite products and gets four- stars because of its price.
Not Oxybenzone free!
EllenS from undisclosed
Tossing this expensive sunscreen! I should have examined the ingredients more thoroughly before purchasing because it contains a suspect chemical - oxybenzone! Plenty of other sunscreens out there that do not contain it.
I really love Kiehl's products - otherwise.
Bring back Facial Fuel UV Guard!
CS75 from New York, NY
I have used this product before and I did not like it at all. It is not the same, nor is it an adequate replacement for Facial Fuel UV Guard. It does not go on the same, I feel it is a different consistency AND my face was sunburned after using it. I am a cyclist and the UV Guard was perfect. Super fluid did not work and I returned it. I am really disappointed that UV guard was discontinued and I will now have to go elsewhere to find a replacement.
Great sunscreen—skeptical about price
B from Oklahoma
I love the consistency of this sunscreen and how it sits on the skin and under makeup. Maybe I'm being too generous with it, but it seems like you need to squirt out a fair amount to cover all of your face/neck which sucks because it's a small bottle. I love the sunscreen itself, BUT I think I could probably find another kind I like just as much for a cheaper price. We'll see! I want to keep buying it, but it's not very affordable.
My favorite sunscreen
Sunscreen from Minnesota
I have been on the hunt for a sunscreen that doesn't make me look ashy. I'm glad I found this one.
MariCP from Seattle
I'm 20, have a pale olive complexion & combination skin. I love this sun screen! It's super light weight and disappears once it's on the skin. It doesn't leave a white cast or pill underneath makeup. Shake well & use sparingly, a little really does go a long way! This is my last layer after serums & moisturizer.
Sorry to see Facial Fuel UV GUARD go
backpacker from undisclosed
Having tried the Super Fluid Daily defense in the past, I did not like it. Facial Fuel UV GUARD was the best sunscreen that I ever used. The most extreme use that I had for it was on backpacking trips at high elevations. I applied this in the morning, to face & arms, before leaving camp and, most days, did not apply more during the day. It went on light, no smell and absorbed leaving no greasiness. Never got sunburned! Hoping that you can bring back Facial Fuel UV GUARD, spf 50, before my next backpack trip.
Best face sunscreen ever💜
Jessi from Idaho
I love this sunscreen. It has a good SPF and is super light. It isn't sticky and doesn't have a strong smell. It dries quickly and wears great under my makeup. I have really sensitive skin and have never had any problems with this sunscreen. It is amazing and I would recommend to anyone.
Not as good as facial fuel spf 50
openmike from New Jersey
Really loved the facial fuel spf 50. Not sure why it?s gone but that was my go-to sunscreen. Not a fan of this substitute.
Best Sunscreen Ever!
MissJoy from undisclosed
I love this sunscreen and I often forget that I have it on since it does not leave a greasy residue after applied. I have very oily and acne prone skin and it has worked wonders for me. My skin is not as oily as it once was. Also, it does not interfere with my makeup application. I have been using this sunscreen in replacement of a moisturizer and I truly do feel like it has done wonders for my skin thus far!
The best!Best face sunscreen
KateKate from Los Angeles, CA
Of all the sunscreens I?ve ever tried, this is the best! I can wear this under my primer and make-up without having a greasy feeling after. I?m hesitant to wear a sunscreen before cause my skin is already oily by the end of the day and I don?t like the white casts on my face but this one seems like it was being absorbed fast by my skin. Thank you Kiehl?s for this awesome product!
