Nothing does more for your skin than SPF, that’s why I was ecstatic to hear that one of my favorite moisturizers from Kiehl’s had finally gotten a face lift and was now available in a sunscreen formula.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream SPF 30 is a 24-hour, lightly-textured daily moisturizer with SPF 30 that helps to hydrate your skin while protecting it against skin-damaging UVA and UVB rays with broad spectrum SPF 30. It was formulated with Antarcticine®, a Glycoprotein known to withstand extreme cold, and “Fountain Plant,” which is notable for its ability to help skin maintain its natural moisture reserves.

I’ve been using this a little bit over a month now and I have to say that it took the top spot in my moisturizer routine. As a woman of color, it’s hard to find moisturizers with built-in sun protection that actually hydrates my skin without leaving a cast on my face or looking too greasy. Take a quick look:

See, look at how moisturized and glowy my hand looks. It’s fast absorbing and non-greasy which is great to wear in the morning underneath my makeup. Take a look at this photo of me at the Octoly NYC brunch after wearing the moisturizer plus a full face of makeup for 5 hours.

I highly recommend this moisturizer – not only for the ladies but for the fellas too – yes, they too need moisturizer! I for one am immediately ordering a bottle for my boyfriend because I know how hard it is for him to remember to put on a face cream AND sunscreen so finding something for his skin that is a 2-in-1 and can kill an extra step for him is great.

You can purchase a 50mL jar for $27.50 in-store or order online at Kiehls.com.
