Save your money and buy something else

Previously, this was a good product, however Kiehl's have changed the formula (for the worst), increased the price and made the product size smaller.

- It has SPF
- It smells alright
- Convenient small packaging and the cream is easy to squeeze out
- A little goes a long way (for better or worse)

- Greasy, feels balmy and waxy
- It's like putting on a mask, even if you use a very little amount. Which means you won't get the appropriate sun protection
- Pills easily and after an hour it starts to split and oxidizes to a harsh orange tint

Should you buy it?
Yes If you want your skin to feel waxy and look orange and uneven.

No If you want your money's worth, sun protection and decent wear.

Great sunscreen but new formula causing Tzone oily faster

I have been using this for more than 6 years, it's lightweight, does not leave any white cast, no problem under makeup, this sunscreen never caused any breakout since the first time I use it.
it seemed to me they have changed the formula, and it's already been for a while, I have noticed with the last 2 tubes I bought it makes my Tzone gets oily even faster after few hour (blotting paper to rescue needed), need to find different sunscreen soon.
*texture : creamy-slightly runny, easy to blend, no white cast, dewy finish
*not recommended for oily skin type
*better value with the 60ml size one

Stay away from this product.

This is terrible if you have sensitive skin that's prone to reactions. Used this product three times in conjunction with my very basic, regular routine in the morning and all of a sudden I broke out pretty badly all over my skin which never happens to me. Considering that I do double cleanse at night and have a skincare routine that keeps my skin in check this was an unusual reaction so I will attribute it to this product. It does feel pretty thick and creamy, as well as leaves a white cast and I don't recommend this for anybody with sensitive or acne prone skin.
