I'm confused, I thought Facial Fuel was just Super Fluid repackaged in a blue bottle for men, but the ingredients are totally different. Has anyone tried both? 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.

How does this differ from the Cross Terrain one, despite I guess the weight/texture of it?
A shopper on Apr 29, 2012
Best Answer: My experience with Facial Fuel has been expectacular. It is liquidy enough for a quick and easy application as well as a light and thin coat. This has been by far the most impressive product I have ever tried.

I'm out on the sun for at least 30 min daily, which protector would be better for me Facial Fuel UV Guard SPF 50+ or Cross-Terrain UV Face Protector SPF 50 ?
I do sweat but also have oily skin

Cross-Terrain UV Face Protector SPF 50
Best Answer: 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.

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.

Best Answer: 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!

it says to wear this in conjunction w/ moisturizer, but i am looking for a spf/moiturizer combo, do i really need do use a moisturizer under this?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2013
Best Answer: 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.

What are the UVA and UVB filter in this suncreen? Is this a physical or chemical sunscreen? If chemical what are they?
Thanks.
A shopper on Jun 20, 2012
Best Answer: 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.

Seems inconvenient because another moisturizer is needed in conjunction with this product. Is there a benefit over using an all-in-one moisturizer and SPF product? Thanks.
A shopper on Jun 11, 2012
Best Answer: 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.

Is this product for men who work outside.. And do I have to keep reapplying ?
A shopper on Oct 3, 2013
Best Answer: 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!

I'm confused. The packaging says to put it on UNDER your moisturizer and the site here says to put it on after. Which is most effective or does it not matter?
A shopper on Jul 13, 2012
Best Answer: 1. Moisturizer
2. Sun block

This should be a correct sequence of applying it.

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?
A shopper on Jun 1, 2012
Best Answer: 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.

can this product use for both face and body?
Jian Q on May 15, 2014
Best Answer: This is a good product, but the bottle is small. Therefore, I suggest to use it on face only, otherwise it will use up so rapidly.
