We’re sure almost everyone has heard of Kiehl’s Dermatologist SolutionsTM Ultra Light Daily UV Defense. The best-selling sunscreen from Kiehl’s is one of Daily Vanity team’s favourite products, and we love how it is lightweight, comfortable to wear, and protects our skin against UV rays and pollutants.
Kiehl’s recently announced the launch of another version of this sunscreen that’s even more suited for humid weather and oily skin. Something even better than this holy grail? We are excited!
What’s different about the new Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Aqua Gel?
The first thing you’d notice about the new Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Aqua Gel SPF50 PA+++ is its super lightweight texture. Kiehl’s chemists have created a water light fluid formula that glides onto the skin effortlessly and feels like you’re not wearing any sunscreen at all. We know how much you hate that icky, greasy sensation that some sunscreens leave on your skin but you don’t have to worry about it anymore with this product. Imagine how comfortable it’ll feel even in the hottest and most humid time of the day – no more excuse to skip sunscreen!
The new formula is also able to visibly reduce the appearance of pores and leave skin shine-free – a perfect base for your makeup. This is a piece of especially great news for those with oily skin.
How does Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Aqua Gel protect my skin?
The Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Aqua Gel may have a lightweight texture, but it’s definitely a heavyweight in the protection department – just like the original Ultra Light UV Defense. While most sunscreens only protect against UV rays, this product defends skin against pollution as well. This is because studies have shown that the skin-damaging effects of UV and pollution combined can be greater than those of either UV or pollution alone, so Kiehl’s wants to make sure it covers all grounds.
The small size of particulate matter in the air can easily penetrate into skin’s pores, causing direct free radical damage. These pollutants also cause oxidative stress, inflammation, and even accelerated skin ageing on skin, resulting in dryness, skin darkening, and dullness. Thankfully, while the Kiehl’s formula is non-comedogenic, it is able to form a protective barrier on your skin’s surface, preventing damage from environmental aggressors. Combined with the antioxidant-rich vitamin E in the formula, you’ll find that your skin feels even more hydrated and soothed.
If you ask us, we think that existing fans of the Kiehl’s Ultra Light UV Defense will love that there’s one more option to go for now. And if you haven’t tried it, it’s time to be impressed, girl!
