Review: New & Improved Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defense!

Friday, April 17, 2015

Living in a tropical country like Malaysia where we have sunshine 365 days a year, we are often exposed to harmful UV rays that will cause damage to our skin. This is why it is important to apply sunscreen to protect against sun damage and premature skin aging.

Do you hate applying sunscreen because it is oily and sticky?
If yes, you are not the only person. I hate the scent, the oily and heavy feeling of sunscreen on my skin. It dreads me every time I have to apply it. However, with the Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defense it is different, it has a lightweight formula, fragrance-free & oil-free!

What is the difference between New & Improved Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defense and the old version?
  1. Extended Protection
    The new formula has a unique blend of sunscreen filters to provide enhanced protection against the more skin damaging long UVA rays that are more abundant and penetrate deeper into the skin.
  2. New Ingredients
    Rosa Gallica Extract is present to sooth and calm skin irritation caused by sun exposure.
  3. Lighter texture
    The new formula absorbs quickly, has a matte finish and leaves skin feeling comfortable.

This gentle sunscreen helps protect against sunburn and the appearance of premature skin ageing. It is also formulated with Vitamin E, it helps reinforce the skin's natural protection against damaging free radicals.

Apply a small amount(pea size) in the morning at the end of your daily skincare routine.

This my face with the Kiehl's Sunscreen + Laniege BB cushion.

I love that its texture is very creamy, it goes on kind of thick but it absorbs quicky and it is not heavy and oily on the skin. It is also non-comedogenic, meaning it doesn't clog the pores. The reason why I didn't get the previous versions was because they all have a dewy finish and richer formula, so glad that new version now has a matte finish & a lighter formula for oily skin type like me!

What I like about the product:
No White Residue
No breakout
Compact packaging
Non Oily & Sticky
High SPF 50 PA+++ Protection
Doesn't have the strong "sunscreen smell"

What I didn't like about the product:
The sunscreen is a little pricey but I think it is worth the price!
