Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product but the cover easily breaks. I started using this product for about a week now. I love the product, its non greasy and feels smooth. But the lid easily breaks. I hope they can do something to change and improve the package. Its really sad, mine broke just having it only for a week.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oxybenzone I bought this product based on customer review. However, I found out that this product contains Oxybenzone which might affect human hormones. I wanted to return this product for that reason, but Kiehls's says return slip is not provided. Kiehls’s should indicates which ingredients are harmful or not so customers do not make a mistake like me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, amazing. I’ve had my eye on this for a while now! I struggle with finding a moisturize with SPF that doesn’t leave white film after the fact. The second I put this on, it felt so lovely. My skin feels so smooth and on top of that it’s SPF 50. Love,love, love

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sunblock ever I live in sunny south Florida, and the only face sunblock that I use is this one. It’s pricey but it works. It blends into skin and absorbs. It does not cast a white film on my darker tan skin. Being a women of color it’s important to find sunblocks that protect my skin, and also absorb well with leaving a white film. Kiehl’s has done it with this product. I have repurchased this product. It’s a cult favorite for a reason. Also, doesn’t break me out at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Facial SPF I absolutely love how light weight this spf is. Its non-greasy & absorbs right into my skin as if its not even there. Perfect!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really Bad Smell, Thought I Bought A Fake One I was using the previous edition, I didn't notice right now is a fluid version and I was using the fuel version until I opened the product, rancid smell, alcohol smell, and the liquid was like something I could never fix them well, really disappointed, threw it away and won't but it again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great but lid is faulty This product is great but came with a faulty lid that leaks. This product needs to be shaken prior to use resulting in leaking and change in texture after a few days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delivers the Goods This fluid spreads smoothly, is iight and non-greasy. With other solar protectant, I feel like I do have that additional coat over my face; not with this. Did not change the texture of my skin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase ever I love how light-weight this product is....the initial application is white but it fades into the skin leaving a slight dewy result. It’s the perfect product for someone who doesn’t like heavy product for the face. I 100% recommend

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Made my face super white I have been a Kiehl's customer for years, but this is the first product I'm returning. It made my face look like I was wearing paint primer... super, super white. I noticed it, but then a couple friends said something too. Sorry... really bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!! this is the best sunscreen i've ever tried. my face burns so easily, and i got burnt only once using this, and it was my fault, not theirs. it is a little oily, but it works wonders. but after going into water or sweating a lot, make sure to reapply! i found out about this product through friends, and i recommend it to friends now. this is a must have!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why did they have to change what was a great product? My husband used Kiehl's Facial Fuel religiously because he needed a non-greasy product with high SPF 50. When Kiel's discontinued that product we ordered this product thinking it would be a good replacement. This was not the case at all. This product has such a strong oder that we wonder if it is rancid. Does that happen? I would never want to put this on my face and he doesn't either. Why do companies have to discontinue products with a loyal following. What a disappointment :-( I am writing this review on his behalf.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but no good service I have been using this brand all the time, and I occasionally go shopping online, but every time I buy a product online, they don't give me enough samples. Every time I pick three samples, they only give me two or one, and there is no Explain why, not to replenish me. So I prefer to go to the store to buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy it again I have a combination and mature skin. I was hesitant to try it because some of the reviews stated that it was disappointing. I have porous skins and I really need a product that is non-comedogenic and this product is supposed to have that property so I decided to try it anyway. It was fine; not exceptionally good but ok to keep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I am super sensitive to the sun and prone to break outs....and I LOVE this sunscreen. I mix it in with Kiehls moisturizer every morning. The consistency is awesome - light yet actually works! Perfect for everyday use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not effective Every single time I wore the sunscreen, I got a sunburn. I’ve never had that before with any other sunscreen. I usually love all Kiehl’s products but this one is a no.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love everything but the price This lotion is amazing. It is lightweight, unscented, applies very easily, and leaves a matte finish. Whereas most sunscreens are difficult to rub into the skin, this one applies very easily without leaving white steaks. It is also exceptionally lightweight and leaves zero shine, making it great for men. This is one of my favorite products and gets four- stars because of its price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't remember the smell last time I bought this I echo the sentiment that I want the Oil Free Facial Fuel UV Guard SPF 50 brought back, like many others have. Also like others have mentioned, Kiehl's representatives both on live chat and the store, insisted this product was basically the same. And since I did use it several years ago before the Oil Free Facial Fuel UV Guard came out, I figured it was an acceptable 2nd choice. I bought the bigger bottle back in Nov 2018 since it was cheaper per oz than the smaller one, not realizing how much of the Facial Fuel sunscreen was remaining in my current bottle. I finally opened it this morning (6/19/2019) to use (it had been sealed all these months) and there was a really odd smell coming from it, which I don't remember from the last time I used it, which was probably back in 2012. And really I was just curious to see if other people had the same issue, and it seems that although it's a complaint amongst others, it doesn't look like the biggest complaint. (note: I haven't read all the comments either) I can't comment too much on the quality of the product, since it's the first day I've used it in about 7 years. However it does feel slightly heavier, and the smell is a major turn off, esp for a guy to wear. It's kind of a bizarre feminine odor (meaning both feminine & bizarre). I smelled something similar years ago, when trying a vitamin C (ester C) facial moisturizer clearly marketed to middle aged / older women. Skin care products have come along way since then. As a guy I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing it at a beach event or pool party over the summer, not to mention I'm afraid it would clash with any after shave or cologne I would want to wear. I noticed some people complained about the odor of the Oil Free Oil Eliminator 24-Hour Anti-Shine Moisturizer for Men, which I use all the time and have never even noticed an odor. If I notice the odor as strong as I do on this sunscreen, I'm afraid it would be very overwhelming to others, as we usually don't smell things on ourselves, at least not for very long or as much as others will. I'm hoping that if I continue to shake it, before each use the smell will lessen or dissipate over time, in which case if it does, I'll go back and modify this review I'm writing. The most frustrating part about this (despite the extremely expensive price of this product), is that since 2006, Kiehl's has been my go to company for literally everything grooming related. And in the last year or so, 3 products I used regularly have been discontinued, and without notice or even reason. 1.) post shave lotion for sensitive skin/shaving bumps containing salicylic acid - don't remember the exact name but NOT the aloe based post shave 2.) The Activated Sunscreen SPF 50 spray bottle Oil Free (NOT at all the same as the lotion, which is not oil free) This would've been a decent back up for the Facial Fuel UV guard that's been discontinued. and now: 3.) The Facial Fuel UV Guard SPF 50 Oil Free While Kiehl's does have a lot of great products that I do use on a regular basis (still more than any other company), more and more I'm having to look elsewhere for my needs to be met. By the way, the Super Fluid UV Mineral Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ is not an acceptable replacement either if you're a guy. It's basically a concealer with sunscreen, it clumps up around any facial stubble you might have and will rinse off and feel messy if you jump in the pool. What I need is a lightweight water resistant oil free sunscreen, that protects against both UVA & UVB rays, that has no odor. If anyone reading this knows where to refer me, that would be greatly appreciated.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Oxybenzone free! Tossing this expensive sunscreen! I should have examined the ingredients more thoroughly before purchasing because it contains a suspect chemical - oxybenzone! Plenty of other sunscreens out there that do not contain it. I really love Kiehl's products - otherwise.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back Facial Fuel UV Guard! I have used this product before and I did not like it at all. It is not the same, nor is it an adequate replacement for Facial Fuel UV Guard. It does not go on the same, I feel it is a different consistency AND my face was sunburned after using it. I am a cyclist and the UV Guard was perfect. Super fluid did not work and I returned it. I am really disappointed that UV guard was discontinued and I will now have to go elsewhere to find a replacement.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Missing Facial Fuel SPF 50- this isn't the same I was logging in to ask that the Facial Fuel product come back, but it looks like many others have already beat me to this review... The Facial Fuel SPF 50 product was perfect for being active outside with it's lightweight texture and exceptional sun protection. I've been using Facial Fuel for years and was VERY disappointed to learn it was discontinued when I went to the store to buy more earlier this month. After scouring the internet for leftover Facial Fuel bottles, I tried this product after being told by many store associates that it was the same. It isn't nearly as good and I'm wondering how many reviews like this will be needed to bring the product back? Happy to see that I'm not alone in this ask- Please Kiehl's, help us out!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really upset that Facial Fuel 50 is discontinued. I typically love Kiehl's products. I spend a large amount of time outdoors on the water (sailing), and the Facial Fuel SPF 50 has been my go-to facial sunscreen. I even converted a number of my sailing/skydiving friends to it, because of its (relative) water resistance, and fantastic texture. While this Super Fluid Daily Defense is fine, it isn't the same - it requires much more reapplication, which defeats the purpose for me. The consultant at the store told me that "it's basically the same" as the Facial Fuel 50, but it says right on the bottle that if you're going to sweat or swim, you need a water resistant sunscreen! I wish Kiehl's would bring back the other formula. I guess I'll be hunting for new active sunscreen elsewhere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sorry to see Facial Fuel UV GUARD go Having tried the Super Fluid Daily defense in the past, I did not like it. Facial Fuel UV GUARD was the best sunscreen that I ever used. The most extreme use that I had for it was on backpacking trips at high elevations. I applied this in the morning, to face & arms, before leaving camp and, most days, did not apply more during the day. It went on light, no smell and absorbed leaving no greasiness. Never got sunburned! Hoping that you can bring back Facial Fuel UV GUARD, spf 50, before my next backpack trip.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as facial fuel spf 50 Really loved the facial fuel spf 50. Not sure why it’s gone but that was my go-to sunscreen. Not a fan of this substitute.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Appears gets the job done but with odd smell and somewhat thick texture It does the job it's supposed to, but with an odd smell and somewhat thick texture, which feels and looks oily, even though it's supposed to be matte. I only bought this product because the Facial Fuel sunscreen is discontinued -- really hope Kiehl's could bring it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sunscreen Ever! I love this sunscreen and I often forget that I have it on since it does not leave a greasy residue after applied. I have very oily and acne prone skin and it has worked wonders for me. My skin is not as oily as it once was. Also, it does not interfere with my makeup application. I have been using this sunscreen in replacement of a moisturizer and I truly do feel like it has done wonders for my skin thus far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best!Best face sunscreen Of all the sunscreens I’ve ever tried, this is the best! I can wear this under my primer and make-up without having a greasy feeling after. I’m hesitant to wear a sunscreen before cause my skin is already oily by the end of the day and I don’t like the white casts on my face but this one seems like it was being absorbed fast by my skin. Thank you Kiehl’s for this awesome product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic The best sunscreen I have used. Very light and odorless. Works well. Never burned using it. Due to the cost I only use it for longer term sun exposure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from nope I wanted to love this because I love Kiehl's BB cream. I just wanted something to mix with the BB cream to make it a little more translucent without sacrificing SPF. I tried it alone and mixed with the BB cream... I hated it. I couldn't get past the smell and the texture. It unscented but the sunscreen-ingredient smell is awful and the smell gave me a headache every time I wore it. And it definitely did not feel "ultra light" on me. It felt very greasy...so much silicone. It sat on top of my skin without absorbing, and I could still smear it around hours later. So I returned this and started looking again for an SPF 50 sunscreen with a light texture ...and now I know I need to avoid silicone to get the texture I am looking for.
