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?
Rated 5 out of 5 by MassMom2 Great Replacement
For years I used Clinique's Super Defense SPF 25 for Dry Combination skin. It was perfect, I was happy, my skin looked awesome and it was perfect under makeup or on it's own. Then they changed the formula. And I suffered as others did. This is as close as I've come to a replacement. This product is moisturizing (though slightly greasy) and offers good protection. It works best under my makeup - slightly greasy on it's own. Overall, I'm happy with it. I've used up my first bottle and will purchase a second.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JulieA Great for SPF, but a bit shiny
I have been using the Kiehl's SPF 30 Moisturizer ever since I noticed they carried it - before, I was using the SPF 15, but was so glad to see a higher SPF. I'm fairly pale, so I wear SPF almost every day, even just going to and from work. I saw my dermatologist in October, and he said my skin tone was really great - not even a freckle! (Granted, that's not everyone's goal, but it goes to show that the SPF 30 really works well.)
One downside though - this moisturizer will make you fairly shiny, especially if, like me, you have combination/oily skin. This doesn't particularly bother me, since I can throw some powder on, and I'd rather be moisturized and protected than dry, but if I have an event, or know some photos will be taken, I'll skip the SPF 30 Moisturizer and go for an oil-free one.
I wish Kiehl's would do an oil-free SPF 30 lotion - it would be ideal! But for an SPF moisturizer, Kiehl's is great. It'll be a little shiny, but it will do the job very well, AND it's incredibly gentle. I've never had any stinging, even around my eyes, and with an SPF, that is hard to pull off. I would definitely recommend this moisturizer for daytime use, but not for occasions where you want to look matte.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Itapaje DOESN'T BURN EYES
My problem has always been finding a sunscreen that doesn't run into my eyes and cause burning. Imagine my surprise when I used Ultra Facial Moisturizet, which my daughter had bought, thinking of it as a moisturizer...for which it is very effective...and found that it also had an SPF of 30. It took me a bit to realize that it hadn't burned my eyes all day long. Hip, hip, hurrah!!
Rated 3 out of 5 by abbie Disappointing
This feels far more like a slightly greasy sunscreen than a facial moisturizer. It doesn't really absorb into skin very well, just feels like I am wearing sunscreen all day. It's ok, but I definitely will NOT purchase it again.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Coastal Just right
This is a great, lightweight moisturizer for summer. There is little sunscreen smell and no greasy feel - I don't get what some of the other reviews are on about. I ordered the smallest size because of some of the negative comments; now I'm ordering a larger bottle. I use it every day - even if it's cloudy - which my dermatologist heartily approves!
