Kiehl’s NEW Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ Sunscreen is an improved version of the original Super Fluid UV Defense which was launched back in 2010. This new formula is virtually weightless which utilizes a combination of UVA and UVB filters to deliver effective broad-spectrum protection. It is paraben-free and offers a silky, non-greasy, non-whitening finish on the skin. The formula is also powered by Vitamin E and Silica. It is also  fragrance-free, oil-free, non-comedogenic and water-resistant (80 minutes), making healthier, younger-looking skin much easier to obtain.

Lately, I have been trying out a lot of different sunscreens because I’ve been experiencing dry skin, and have been using retinol on and off. Anyone who has used retinol know about the skin sensitivity and the peeling…it’s crazy. So, I’ve been using both chemical and physical sunscreens depending on how my skin looks and feels. Generally speaking, I avoid chemical sunscreens when I am on retinol because of the sensitivity and stinging. If I use physical sunscreen, I find that with the white tint, my dry/peeling skin gets even more emphasized…and that looks ugly…so then I started playing with different textures of physical sunscreens and found that a moisturizing/creamy one works better. Anyway, back to Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+…I actually really like this sunscreen. It is completely transparent when applied and creates the most perfect matte, non-sticky finish. It is a great base for your makeup. It seems like it is suitable for sensitive skin, as I have not experienced any stinging. The sunscreen lasts me all day without getting oily, has good UVA and UVB filters and I like the addition of vitamin E.

The Bottom Line

Texture and finish is very important for me when it comes to sunscreens…and I really like the finish of this sunscreen. It is matte, not drying and great as a base for your makeup. I will keep on using this and I highly recommend this to everyone and anyone.
