Rated 1 out of 5 by Andrea24 Super Greasy/Oily
I have fairly even skin, not dry and not oily. I use Kiehl's for most of my skincare needs. I happened to switch from the regular ultra facial cream to this - and - big mistake. My skin becomes Grease Mecca whether I apply a tiny dime-size amount or a lot more for SPF coverage. Returning it immediately.
Rated 1 out of 5 by ME123 Do NOT buy
I wish there was a way to upload a picture for this review. I applied this before going out in the sun. During the two hours I was out, I applied twice more (I do NOT want my face sunburned). My face is bright red. Not just a little red, bright red.
Also, has a very greasy feel.
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.
