Kiehl’s Ultra-Light Daily Defense SPF 50 Review

This week’s heatwave has got everyone talking about sunburn and the importance of SPF. Sunburn is the overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, and the redness is the caused by the increase in blood flow to the area, as they body tries to heal the damage caused.

My mum has always slapped on SPF whenever we were out in the sun, which helped instil the message that SPF is important. As I got older I began to understand that SPF protects against premature ageing and skin damage which can later cause skin cancer.

During my course of Roaccutane, I was advised to always use SPF even on non-sunny days as my skin was more fragile during the treatment. I wanted the highest protection possible in an easy to use formula, specifically targeted to the face. Kiehl’s Ultra-Light Daily Defense SPF 50 came to the rescue.

I didn’t want to apply body SPF to my face as it has oil ingredients which can block pores on the face, so this moisturiser was just what I needed. It’s a light moisturiser texture, it’s lightweight and doesn’t leave a white cast.

I don’t have to apply moisturiser on after using this product and it works fine as a base for makeup. I would say if you have extra oily skin you should opt for the La Roche-Posay Anthelios AC Anti-Shine Matte Fluid SPF30 instead.

When I posted a photo of the Kiehl’s Ultra-Light Daily Defense SPF 50 to my Instagram, a fellow blogger mentioned it was the only SPF that didn’t break her out, so that must be a good sign! What is your favourite facial SPF?
