A new product by Kielh’s skincare new line for men offers 2 different benefits in one! This type of products is surely the most preferable choice for men, who can’t stand using a variety of skincare products, as for them this is a boring process. Kiehl’s Facial Fuel SPF 15 Sunscreen is moisturizing sunscreen with spf 15 which not only transform your tired and dull skin, but also protects you from the dangerous UV rays.

It has a light and non greasy texture and it can be absorbed really easily and quickly! This happens thanks to rich in vitamins and moisturizing element formula. For example, the formula with vitamins C and e, chestnut extract and soy, helps refresh tired-looking skin and improve skin’s complexion and texture in general. Caffeine, also, acts as an antioxidant on the skin, and may reduce skin cell damages by the sun and reduce the risk of skin cancer.

The problem in its formula is that it contains alcohol, which can be drying and irritating to the skin, and may generate free radicals in case of very sensitive skins. Unfortunately, we have to mention that this sunscreen also contains ingredients that are known to increase damage in UV light, such as the citrus extracts and lavender extract. Finally, this product contains some parabens preservatives, so if you belong to people who try to avoid them, it’s not that suitable for you!

However, let’s underline that it moisturizes without leaving to your skin any shiny or oily effect! Moreover, it has the faintest of scents, and is soothing on application. As it has been already mentioned, this sunscreen is a pretty good moisturizer too, but not the best thing after a shave. So keep in mind that it can’t replace your after-shave balm.

It can be used by all skin types, but it’s ideal for the dry skin that needs extra moisturizing. This sunscreen comes in a tub of 125ml (it’s too large for a sunscreen) and it costs almost 25$. So it’s visible that for the quantity and the quality that offers to your skin, this price tag is satisfying up to a point! You can understand this if you think that you only need a pea-size amount of the product applied in cleansed face every morning to cover your entire face!

On the other hand, even though the texture of this product may be nice and it does really contain antioxidants, the lack of broad spectrum UV protection (e.g. 30+) and the inclusion of some skin damaging ingredients make this not such a super formulated, but expensive product.

Regarding this product, the brand claims that it’s a multi-functional sunscreen: “Refuel, re-energize, revitalize..and moisturize”! After all, we could say that it will indeed do what it promises and satisfy the majority of a man’s skin needs, but a bigger, for example, broad spectrum will be undoubtedly better!

So, it is your choice! On the one hand, the Facial Fuel with Spf 15 as it is so important to wear sunscreen every day for healthy skin, so from now on you don’t even have to think about putting on sunscreen every morning and f and on the other hand a good moisturizer and a sunscreen after this! What is more convenient for you?
