What's the difference between them? I understand that both are chemical sunscreens but Super Fluid seems to be more UVA/UVB protection based while Facial Fuel has more antioxidants and minerals.

Peter C: The Facial Fuel is lighter than the Cross Terrain, so if you have oily skin I'd go with the former. The Cross Terrain is pretty heavy (almost waxy) but it works extremely well for a long day outdoors when you are sweating and/or in the water often. Sep 12, 2013

erick f: I would go with the cross terrain. Because it is not a lotion but more like a wax or paste, it stays on better even when sweating. It is actually the best sunscreen I have used for the face in terms of not dripping away when sweating or stinging my eyes. Sep 9, 2013

Luis T: Cross terrain felt thicker to me, so in the summer heat I prefer facial fuel, I have normal to dry skin and don't sweat much. My advice is, time to get some samples and try them out in your routine Sep 10, 2013

AlEast asked: Which sunscreen would be better recommended between the Cross-terrain UV face protector and the Facial Fuel UV Guard?
I'm out on the sun daily for at least 30 min and I do sweat and have oily skin.

gerardo f: I'm exactly like you. I have been using the Cross-Terrain UV Face Protector SPF50 and it while it's a wax like substance, when you apply it, it does not feel greasy and it lasts ALL day! I'm a long course triathlete and I apply it once and then forget it. I use it on face, ear and neck. SUPER product, highly recommend it! Sep 9, 2013

DAVID B: Assuming you're a male, I would suggest using the Facial Fuel with the SPF if you want both a moisturizer and SPF coverage on a normal (non-beach/outdoor) day. It's much easier to use one product (obviously). I actually returned the product your are inquiring about; I didn't like the feeling after wearing it. I love Kiehls, but this product was not up to par with my expectations, especially at this price point. Apr 11, 2013

Dale S: It contains avobenzone, 3%; homosalate, 15%; octisalate, 5%; octocrylene, 5% and oxybenzone, 6% but don't bother with this sunscreen. It is almost as thin as water. Keeping it in your hand before applying is difficult. I don't recommend it. Jun 20, 2012

Jonathan R: I believe it provides (primarily) chemical protection from both UVA and UVB - the active ingredients the packaging lists and what I know about them is listed below (I'm not an expert):

Avobenzone (3%) - UVA chemical protection
Homosalate (15%) - Blocks UV rays around 300 nm
Octisalate (5%) - weak UVB protection
Octocrylene (5%) -abosorbs UVB and short wave UVA and works to boots other agents effectiveness.
Oxybenzone 6% - also UVB and short wave UVA protection

There may also be some physical protection, but I do not know ,these would not be listed as active ingredients. I have no personal information to share since it was a gift. I hope this helps.

Ken M: This product is great! I work and play outdoors all day long kayaking, fishing and golfing. I don't use a separate moisturizer. The sunscreen spreads out very evenly and works great. I'll be buying more soon.

DAVID B: I agree. Its another step. I would suggest going with the Facial Fuel moisturizer with and SPF. There will soon be more men's products that combine some of these steps, much like the recently introduced women's "BB" products. I am looking forward to these products. Jun 12, 2012

A shopper asked: Is this product for men who work outside.. And do I have to keep reapplying ? Oct 3, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Rachel W: I got this for my husband, and I use the super fluid UV defense every day. The facial fuel has a slightly thinner consistency, but is really close to the UV defense. If you put it on early in the morning you should put a bit more on your nose and cheeks if you're in direct sun at noon and are sweating a lot. I would typically put it on around 10am and be in the sun until 2 without reapplication. It absorbs well and stays on. The little bottle lasts longer than you'd think, is great for everyday use, doesn't smell, and doesn't leave a heavy residue. It's very thin and watery. Khiels makes great no-nonsense products. I'd highly recommend this product for every day use outside! Oct 3, 2013

A shopper asked: With more options available I'm growing confused as what to stick to...I understand variety is good but all the sunscreen products seem to offer the same thing (SPF 50+) yet differ in weird ways. For example, I'm confused as to why they have a Facial Fuel 15 and 50, might as well get the 50 right? But I'm "weirded out" by having caffeine in it. Any thoughts on Facial Fuel 50 vs 15 vs Super Fluid? Jun 1, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jonathan R: I'm not sure why they have different SPFs but it could be that they have different chemical ingredients that some people may wish to avoid or simply one may be lighter than the other - I only use the daily moisturizer because it doesn't clump on stubble. As for the caffeine, people and "studies" claim it helps with cellulite and dark circles because it is a diuretic but as far as I know you really cannot absorb caffeine though the skin (could be wrong) - I think it is just a trend in beauty products. On a completely subjective note, I do feel better when I use this product and I do see a noticeable improvement in skin color when I apply it. Jun 22, 2012
