Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ Review

Kiehls Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ 002

Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ is a milky type SPF that’s oil-free and lightweight for protecting skin against both UVA and UVB rays. Those who have dabbled in Asian sun protection will understand the use of “milky type” as that’s a reference to the formula which resembles a runny liquid, ie, milk.

This is one of sunscreens in the mid-range due to it’s generous size and and nicer price tag of $34.

Fasio Airy Shield UV Screen SPF 50+ Review

Fasio Airy Shield UV Screen SPF 50+ 001

I always get alot of questions about what my favorite SPF products are. I use several to be honest because, well, I like variety. I imagine it doesn’t do any favors for my skin but I do in fact use a few that I like and I switch on and off between them.

If I’m outside for longer periods of time one of favs would be Fasio Airy Shield UV Screen SPF 50+/PA+++. Fasio is a Japanese brand by Kose which is available within Japan and a few other Asian markets. I’m not really a huge fan of Fasio makeup as it’s always disappointing particularly the mascaras but I do enjoy this sunscreen.

Neutrogena Ulta Sheer Liquid Daily Sun Protection SPF 55 Review

Neutrogena Ulta Sheer Liquid Daily Sun Protection SPF 55 8

This Summer felt like the Summer of the SPF. SPF has evolved a fair bit this year and I’m seeing more and more options that offer a higher SPF factor of 50 and up. Such products are the norm in the Asian market however here in the US we tend to stick to the 30 range.

Another interesting evolution is drugstore makeup brands offering SPF options. Asia is flooded with a variety of SPF products and brands in particular offer not only color cosmetic options but also an SPF product or several. It’s very rare that there isn’t some SPF option available from most brands in Asia.

Versus here in the US, where we don’t normally see our favorite brands such as say Maybelline or Revlon offering a product available exclusively for sun protection.

Neutrogena changes all that with it’s new Ulta Sheer Liquid Daily Sun Protection. Does this mean we’ll see more drugstore brands offering SPF products all their own?

Let’s hope so!

Philosophy Miracle Worker SPF 55 Miraculous Anti Aging Fluid 5

Philosophy Miracle Worker SPF 55 Miraculous Anti-Aging Fluid, You NEED this!

Personally, I’m a self confessed lover of the Philosophy Miracle Worker Collection. I used the pads, I use the night cream, I use the serum…! Brilliant stuff!

So when I heard the word that Philosophy was extending the line to include an anti-aging fluid that was packed with SPF 55 I was so on board that train.

Miraculous?  Aw hells yes, I heard angels sing this week whenever I applied it on my face.
