Avobenzone, also known by its trademarked name, Parsol® 1789, is the most commonly used chemical sunscreen today. On the FDA’s Category I sunscreen list, it offers broad-range UVA protection and helps protect the skin against the harmful effects of sun exposure which can cause premature skin aging.


Octisalate (Octyl Salicylate) is a time-tested, effective sunscreen ingredient which augments UVB protection.


Octocrylene is a premium UVB sunscreen that is water resistant and has a broad-band absorbent range.

The product says Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB protection. I was wondering how much UVA protection does it have? Is it PA +/PA++/PA+++? Thanks in advance!

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.

Best Answer: I used to use the same foundation and have oily skin as well! I found no matter foundation I wore, as long as I let the kiehl's product set before applying my foundation it was never a problem!

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.

Is this a clear liquid jell ?
Robert P on May 18, 2014
Best Answer: No, it is a white liquid. More like a very watery light sun block. It is very light though, and absorbs fast. Plus, it goes a long way.

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!
