Is this safe for sensitive skin? I have sensitive, reactive skin and I really want a more natural facial spf that can be worn under makeup!
A shopper on Apr 14, 2012
Best Answer: I have been using this product for about a month and have extremely sensitive skin. I have not noticed any bad side affects at all. It is light and powdery feeling to the touch. My Kiehls representative advised me to use it as the last step in my morning facial regimine using only a small drop as though you were coating your face and neck with a drop of water. It is working well for me and has no affect on my makeup application. She also advised to use it everyday for even the lightest exposure to the sun.

Does this leave a white visible film on the skin after application?
A shopper on Apr 2, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, Super Fluid UV Defense SPF50+ did leave a white film on my skin. My suggestion is come out with a tinted version. This is the only product I ever returned. Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado is the best eye treatment for dry sensitive skin. I use it twice a day and on days I go to the Gym I use it three times.

Can this product be used in lieu of moisturizer?
A shopper on Apr 10, 2013
Best Answer: Possibly. I usually put it on after I have put my moisturizer on and haven't used it on it's own. It is light and doesn't feel thick on your skin so I could see it used without a facial moisturizer.

Do I apply this product before moisturizer or after moisturizer?
Martin B on Dec 26, 2013
Best Answer: In my experience the super fluid SPF 50+ Actually IS a moisturizer. When I use it I don't need another moisturizing product. But, if you do want to use it with another moisturizer, then it's best to apply the SPF 50+ first, directly to clean skin. This maximizes its UV protection.

What are some of the best ways to remove the UV Defense SPF 50+ at the end of the day? My pores get clogged very easily (esp on my nose, unfortunately), and while I recently started to use MAC's makeup remover to remove my makeup (I mostly use it to clean my mascara off cuz that is pretty much all I use), is there another remover that will clean up the sunblock completely?
A shopper on Jul 15, 2012
Best Answer: So sorry not to be able to speak directly to this. I only know this is head over heels the best product of its kind. After I use it, I just clean my face as normal and have had no problems. Enjoy!

Does this sunscreen prevent you from getting dark from the sun? ( I'm an Asian and we always want to be as light as we can...lol)
A shopper on Aug 8, 2014
Best Answer: Hello, I can't answer your question specifically, as I use this sunscreen mostly in the Caribbean when the sun is very strong and I am at the beach. However, I get a light tan very gradually and never burn even there. Also, I have sensitive skin and other sunscreens irritate my skin. This one never does. I really like this product

Is this a replacemnt of 'Ultra Light Daily UV Defense'? Can this be applied on face before the foundation? If I just want to have some prduct which is exactly the same as ' Ultra Light Daily UV Defense', shall I purchase this one or BB cream one?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2014
Best Answer: I use this product every single day under foundation. It is lightweight, non-greasy and very effective for sun protection and as a light moisturizer that does not interfere in any way with the look or feel of other makeup. I would definitely recommend over the BB cream for a more polished look and lighter texture.

Best Answer: I use this during the summer, as I am out in the sun from 8-16 hours. I have never checked to see if it is waterproof or not. I do sweat out there, and I will pat my face with a clean paper towel and reapply by patting it on.

Best Answer: Yes. I'm not Asian Pacific, but I have a lot of yellow/olive undertones and have a lot of hyperpigmentation on my face. This sunscreen doesn't cause me to breakout and has a high spf for such a light weight formulation. If you were to go higher in spf it tends to be heavier with a white cast (from my experience). I really like this sunscreen.
