I was preparing to order the Facial Fuel SPF15 since I'm about out of my last 6.8oz tube. However, after reading the reviews and discovering that the formula has been changed, I will wait for a response from Kiehl's. Meanwhile, looks like I'm shopping for another facial moisturizer with SPF.
Rated 4 out of 5 by M0851 Not for very oily skin.
I have very oily skin, but I still chose the bottle of Facial Fuel over the Oil Eliminator.
It's very clear that the Oil Eliminator works much better at destroying the oil around my forehead and T-Zone. That said, the Facial Fuel has a great consistency, and spreads very evenly across the skin. It's not a very good sunscreen, and while the moisturizer needs to be applied twice a day, sunscreen needs to be applied nearly six times a day- Kiehl's should look in to this issue.
I haven't had any issues with smell- I think it smells fine. It's weird, but I'm okay with it.
I'm probably going to go back to the oil eliminator, but I think this product would work much better for skin that experiences little oil.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Johnnyb Please Bring Back the OLD
Please bring back the original formula or something close to it. This formula DOES indeed SMELL awful. I was so happy with what I had, but seeing that it has been over a year and you HAVE NOT listened to us - your customers, it seems unlikely that you will make us a better SPF version of this awesome moisturizer. Please help us here. Thanks for reading.
Rated 2 out of 5 by KHewlett Too heavy, makes my face sweaty
I've used the regular non-SPF Facial Fuel moisturizer for a while now & absolutely love it. My last visit to my local Kiehl's store the lady persuaded me to try this product which I figured was a smart idea to protect my fair skin. Personally I don't think the smell is too bad, although there is definitely a light scent of sunscreen, but it wasn't strong enough to bother me. After using this product for a few weeks alternating with the regular non-SPF Facial Fuel I noticed this product was making me noticeably sweat. I'd pat my forehead with a cloth but it made no difference. This moisturizer is too heavy & doesn't allow my skin to breathe causing the gross sweating. I've tried using a minimal amount, giving ample time after showering to dry & cool off - no difference. Disappointed. Glad I bought the smallest bottle, it will be the last one.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Zoltarswim Stains Clothes! Terrible new Formula
I don't know what they did to this stuff, but it now turns light colored shirts orange. It destroyed my favorite Nautica Oxford and another dress shirt I own as well as 6 of my undershirts. I conducted a controlled experiment by placing a dot of each of the new Kiehls products I was using on a white t-shirt. After Facial Fuel SPF15 dried, there was a large orange dot on the shirt. I washed the shirt multiple times, used spray and wash, and the spot still would not come out. They really made a mistake with this product and I am surprised they didn't catch this during their testing phase. Save your clothes! Don't buy this product!
Rated 4 out of 5 by NolaGeorge Another Kiehl's product I use on a daily basis. Since I was a teenager I was afraid of using sunblock because almost each time I used one I break out. Well, this product is the exception, is not greasy but it could be more sun block effective. I still love it though. And is scent free! (at least that's what I think)
Rated 1 out of 5 by JLizz Bring back my old Facial Fuel
Why oh why didn't I buy 10 of the old Facial Fuel?! The new formula is thick and smells bad. I've used this product for 10 years. On the market for a new moisturizer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elinho My best purchase ever
I Will have to desagree with the bad reviews. I understand that people get used to a product and wont like any sort of changes. But to say this smells bad??? Not at all. It doesnt feel heavy either. And guys, the change was for the best cause now it is broadspectrum! Still the smell is great, the texture is great and I never leave home without putting it on. My companion.
