Rated 1 out of 5 by theolddays TERRIBLE AWFUL HORRIBLE
how many negative reviews of this new formula will it take for a response from the company? should i start a change.org campaign? the new spf facial fuel is thick and disgusting! it smells and feels like cr*p! are we to believe that broad spectrum is so much better? so i was putting on non broad spectrum for 10+ years and somehow not protecting myself sufficiently. why do companies do this? i don't see any reviews from years back complaining that the facial fuel needed to feel like thick, smelly banana boat cream! someone call me the waaambulance
Rated 4 out of 5 by nford I like it...
I've never had an issue with this product. Only thing I've noticed is the slight texture difference than the original and the different scent. I like how this is still a light textured product and protects my skin during the day.
I agree for those who are in the sun for a prolonged period of time would benefit from a reapplication of the product, or a product like Super Fluid UV Defense on top.
None the less, its a really great product and I wouldn't let others make the decision for you. Get a sample - Try it out first!

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)
