this is amazing - despite being such a high spf it leaves no white residue and does not block my pores. it is also fine as a base for make up (leave for 5 mins to absorb). you only need to use a pea sized amount - the guy in the shop showed me how to do it - dab a pea sized blob onto the back of your hand then use your fingers to dab smaller blobs all around your face, then rub in. cant recommend too highly
No white residue! No breakouts! No feeling of something heavy and sticky on my face for the first time after a long term use of sunblocks!
Finally, a lightweight, high factor facial sunscreen that doesn't leave a white cast on darker skin! I was looking for a daily sunblock to help with some pigmentation that's appeared on my face. I've been using this for a week (after trying a sample) and am really pleased. I apply it over moisturiser and leave it for 5-10 minutes before applying makeup. It's quite moisturising so I may start using it on its own. It doesn't have a matte finish but that's not a problem if you use a light dusting of powder, or less moisturiser underneath. I just love being able to use a sunscreen that isn't greasy and heavy, and doesn't need foundation to cover up the white cast!
This is going to become a daily staple in the summer months; another excellent product from Kiehl's.
After been years looking the best sunscreen without making my face greasy ,finally the waiting is over!Been using it for almost 2 years and I simply cannot live without this!
I have oily-combo skin,and it suits me well,no greasy at all!
I wear it everyday under foundations ,name them: Giorgio Armani,Tarte,Laura mercier and any mineral make up then sometimes when the weather is a little bit humid I layer it with Tarte Primer.
I've used this sunscreen on and off for about 4 years, and am close to finishing off my second bottle. I guess the most apt description I can give this sunscreen is that it's reliable. I trust the SPF50 PA+++ in this, and the fact that its texture is very creamy, and goes on kind of thick but doesn't necessarily clog your pores. That being said, it does have a shiny finish so it's not ideal for oily/combo skinned girls. I don't think I will be repurchasing because I prefer more matte sunscreens (Clarins UV Plus, Skinceuticals Ultra Facial Defense are good alternatives, these are more like Japanese sunscreens in that it has a thin texture and goes on matte). Oh, and it's not waterproof which makes it kind of annoying during summer when the humidity is high.
Extraordinarily greasy!!! For those who have oily or acne-prone skin, never ever try this product!!!
Breaksout! Greasy!pricey! Small amount! Oh my lord!
love this product, hate the price... i tried dior sunscreen and now i have to come to this once i've finished the dior sunscreen...

love that its not too thick, much easier to apply
This is so oily and makes my skin greasy. It does whiren your skin though
Best sunscreen I ever used. Light weight and oil free. After apply on my skin, it's hydrating and transparent. Love it! On my third bottle now.
