All for the same reason. My daughter is on Humira and she is prone to skin cancer. This stuff is great! I've used it myself.

Dear sir or madam,
Does this item contain any oxybenzone,“retinyl palmitate” or “retinol palmitate” in it? Is it suitable for kids to use? Please advise. Thank you very much.

Does this last all day?
Joshua W on Apr 11, 2013
Best Answer: No sunscreen lasts all day, all sunscreen must be reapplied every 2-3 hours. It's annoying but true

Is it a spray formula?
Emmanuelle B on Jul 4, 2012
Best Answer: It's not a spray, but a lotion. It goes on really light and smooth, not quite as light and smooth as the face version, but really nice.

Hi, I m wondering that whether I need to use makeup remover or cleanser afterward? How about facial cleaner?
George on Apr 20, 2013
Best Answer: I love the Activated Sun Protector Sunscreen for Body SPF 50. It is my go to for arms, legs, back, etc., however, I do not use it on my face. For my face, I use the Kiehl's Super Fluid UV Defense. It is an ultra light sunscreen for everyday use (also SPF 50). I do not use make up remover to remove either product. I do use facial cleanser on my face or Dove soap. I use body wash on the rest of me. I really love both sunscreen products I have mentioned and happily they DO NOT smell like coconut. I am a repeat customer. Hope this info was helpful.

some suncreen can be used on the face as well as body ----is this safe to put on the face when swimming?
A shopper on Apr 16, 2013
Best Answer: Hi there,

Honestly, I haven't used the Activated Sun Protector Sunscreen for Body SPF 50 on my face to this point. I use it on my arms and legs strictly. I use the Superfluid UV Defense SPF 50+ on my face and top of my head (yes I'm bald now :-)) and the Superfluid is amazing - both products are amazing! The Superfluid goes on so easy, you don't need much and is fantastic protection for my face and head. I have very sensitive skin, so that's why these two products have been so perfect.

I don't see why you couldn't use the Activated Sun Protector Sunscreen on your face, I just haven't because it said for "Body".

Hope that helps.

Paul

Hi,
I'm interested in this product however, I do not see where it has UVA protection in the description. Can you confirm?

Thank you
A shopper on Jun 1, 2012
Best Answer: Yes, the bottle says broad spectrum UVA/UVB. In fact, if you compare the sunscreen ingredients with Kiehl's other SPF 50 face sunscreen the UV filters are exactly the same chemicals in the exactly same percentage. The main difference appears to be a thicker base however no reason you could not try it

Hi, I m just wondering that whether I need to use makeup remover afterward? is facial cleanser just fine?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2013
Best Answer: the facial cleanser i use can remove light facial makeup "Washable Cleansing Milk". i don't think you need something heavy but if you felt the sunscreen can leave something on you're face afterwards you can use makeup remover but i just use the cleanser with makeup remover effect

Can the Activated Sun Protector Sunscreen for Body SPF 50 be used for kids?
A shopper on Apr 9, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, I've used it for my kids. They don't typically react to products, though, so admittedly I haven't read the label for specific ingredients. This is a high-quality product though, and I totally trusted it to get the job done for my kids (ages 3, 7 and 9).

what is the difference between the face lotion sunscreen and the body spray sunscreen?
A shopper on Apr 15, 2014
Best Answer: I asked that question in the store. I think it had to do with vitamins or nutrients for you face? I use the body spray lotion on my face without any problems.

What's the difference between this product and the other sunscreen cream?
Brenda H on Mar 21, 2013
Best Answer: For me, it has virtually no fragrance, which I like a lot. It goes on beautifully, never feels sticky and lasts for hours. I do have to reapply after a couple of hours in hot sun, but I have never gotten a sunburn and I am VERY fair!
I also love that when I use it on my lips to prevent fever blisters, it doesn't taste awful, the way many lip sun screens do and it works! No fever blisters for me, although I am obsessed with applying it to my lips every hour or so.
