Rated 3 out of 5 by Phamantha Oily...
Although I admit that this moisturizer is in fact moisturizing, the formula is way to oily, After application you are left with an extremely greasy finish. If Khiel's could fix the oily finish, this sun protection moisturizer would be good. Other than the oily residue present after application, the formula soaks in quite well. If you already have oily skin, I would not recommend this product to you. Khiel's UV defense cream leaves a powdery finish and would work better on oily skin.
Rated 1 out of 5 by SusyAnon Wish I tried the sample first
I love the regular ultra facial moisturizer, but the SPF version is terrible. It's very greasy and runs off easily - just a bit of sweat and it's gone. Don't get it in your eyes! It also smells quite strong of sunscreen.
I guess it's my own fault for not trying a sample of it first, but when I was humming and hawing about it, the representative probably should have offered a sample so I wouldn't feel pressured to buy the whole bottle in that moment.

I'm not quite sure the sunscreen in this product is very effective. You may still want to use the Super Fluid UV Defense as well.
I agree with others that this version is a lot more oily and probably isn't the most effective moisturizer out there.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Morgs NOT a sunscreen
While this is a nice facial moisturizer, it should NOT be used as the sole means of sun protection. I have no idea why, but this formula is very sub-par to Kiehl's other sun protection products (like the Facial Fuel). I wore this while snowboarding, and my face was very burned. I also wore this at the beach, and even after constantly reapplying, my face burned. (I had to keep applying it because it is NOT water/sweat proof.) Just be careful when you're in the sun. Otherwise, an effective moisturizer.
Rated 1 out of 5 by robm527 What SPF?
This stuff is the worst. It goes on SUPER greasy. When I put this on, I get asked why I'm sweating. Also, I put this on before going out in the sun. It's an SPF30 and my face was burned within an hour. Not good. Avoid this stuff at all cost unless you want to look like a greasy lobster!
Rated 4 out of 5 by HoytGirl A great SPF moisturizer
This is a great SPF moisturizer but, I do feel it takes awhile to absorb. I have found that once I cleanse, tone, serum, & then moisturize I need to wait about 5-10 minutes before applying make-up. Overall I love it, just wish it would absorb a little faster.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AtticusOhAtticus Terrific for dry, sensitive skin
I have sensitive skin, and most sunscreen products make my face feel like it's on fire. I wear "real" sunscreen during the summer or when I am in the sun for any duration, but for dead of winter or when I'm going to be indoors much of the day, I yearned for a moisturizer with sunscreen that wouldn't burn and adequately moisturized. A friend recommended this and I am so happy. My dry skin is happy, and no burn. Yay! Others have mentioned a greasy, shiny effect but I am not bothered by that.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pablo Waited for SPF 30 but now it's too Oily
I have used the SPF 15 version for several years and my only complaint was not enough SPF. I would ask at stores if that was in the works. When SPF 30 finally arrived I was very happy but now find it is so oily and shiny. I recently ventured out and tried Shiseido's SPF 50 but it was not moisturizing and was just a sunscreen (but a very matte one!)
KIEHL'S WILL YOU PLEASE FIND A SOLUTION TO THIS OTHERWISE PERFECT PRODUCT?
