Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely cream, wrong colour. The cream is really good, but I needed a slightly darker colour. The 'fair' colour makes me look washed out. Next time I will look in store. 12 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by So glad I found it I have been looking for a high SPF cream for daily use since I started getting sun spots/melasma 2 or 3 years ago. Finally I have found one that fits the bill. It has SPF 50, gives light to medium natural coverage, the colour is perfect for my skin (I am using Natural) and is not at all greasy. I'm especially pleased about the colour as I really struggle to find products that are not too yellow or orange as I have pink undertones. The smell is a bit odd as mentioned by others, but not unpleasant or strong. My only complaint is that it is very expensive compared to competitors products where I can buy more for less. I like it enough that I'll pay though. 19 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sheer coverage with SPF50, foundation replacement Product purchased in Fair. I have pale, blue-based skin (always need to use the lightest foundation) and this provides a hint of colour/radiance to my otherwise very pasty complexion (not remotely orange!). With such pale skin, any imperfections are immediately visible. For my skin type, the SPF50 element is so important for everyday protection. The coverage is sheer, though evened out my combination skin tone. I still need to use concealer on occasional spots, though this hasn't affected my perception of the product, as the coverage is otherwise so good (yet natural looking, for that perfect, radiant, no-make-up effect). For work and holiday, this provides the perfect level of coverage, though for more dressy occasions I switch to using Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily Defence SPF50, with foundation. 07 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wonderful product! I was looking for an SPF for the face that didn't leave me looking greasy and terrible. I asked the advisor on the online chat who recommended this product. This product is wonderful! It lasts all day, goes on really nicely and to top it off has a little colour in it to take away any redness on my face. For those people looking for good coverage and lots of colour then this isn't for you. However if you are looking for a sun protector with the added extra of a bit of colour which doesn't leave you greasy and lasts all day then this is just wonderful. My skin feels great with this too! The price is high in my opinion as you only get 30 ml of product. However I only use a pea sized amount each day so it is very likely to last me a long time. 20 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good I really like this product. Use it in the morning after Ultra Facial Cream and apart from blusher do not need more makeup for day to day wear, apart from a little powder on t-zone. I particularly like the strong sun protection meaning l do not have to use any further products on my face. My skin feels soft and looks clearer. 30 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good skin product Just started using this BB cream. Lovely texture and a plus is the spf 50. Wearing it in the evening on holiday and have had compliments on my skin. 14 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Whats not to love? I've had bad previous experiences with BB creams because of my oily skin, I decided to go for kiehl's when stepping back to the BB cream zone because I felt it was a trusted brand, and i LOVED IT! I usually dislike shine on my face, but I dont mind this one at all, and it's SPF 50!!! which is a very important factor to me since im from the middle east where the sun shines directly on people's faces!! smells nice too, and it lasts long enough. 27 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by smooth and light I have been using this for a week now and I love the effect. It provides light coverage and the 'Fair' colour blends in to my skin tone perfectly. My only comment is that it seemed to make under my eyes a bit greasy, but the shop assistant did advise me to put something lighter under my eyes. Also, the smell is a little hard to get used to...but I guess that is the price for a high SPF! 27 March 2015
