Kiehl’s Super Muti-Corrective Cream Sunscreen – add it to your shopping list

Kiehl’s Super Muti-Corrective Cream Sunscreen

It’s August and about now your sunscreen is either running low or getting very tired. We’re never going to tell you not to use sunscreen since we believe in it firmly. And when a sunscreen can do more than protect you from the sun’s harmful rays then you need it even more. Kiehl’s sent along their Super Muti-Corrective Cream Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF30 and it’s a joy to use. I’m not an outdoors person but that doesn’t mean I’m not in the sun daily. Between my husband’s new convertible and two little ones who’d rather be outside running I’ve got to have good protection. I used to burn so badly that I’d blister but I’ve learned to protect myself from that.

Kiehl’s Super Muti-Corrective Cream Sunscreen does everything for me. It’s considered to be a 5-in-1 product.

  • Lifts, smoothes, sculpts, moisturizes and retexturizes skin
  • SPF 30 Broad Spectrum UB Protection helps protect skin from early signs of aging caused by the sun
  • Paraben Free, Safe for sensitive skin

The Super Multi-Corrective Cream can be used night and day. Most people don’t want a sunscreen at night but it certainly doesn’t hurt. Kiehl’s does make this without the addition of sunscreen though so that’s an option too. It’s especially nice to use this on your neck to moisturize.

This cream contains two great ingredients: JASMONIC ACID which is inspired by “signal molecules” secreted by plants that begins a self-repair process – Corrects wrinkles and fine lines, loss of suppleness and elasticity. And BEECH TREE EXTRACT “Sugar extracted from Beech Tree which helps improve skins overall firmness”.  And we can’t forget the sunscreen ingredients used:

When I first opened this I noticed a fragrance to it but upon use there is none. With ingredients like jasmine flower extract I was a little worried, but this is an easy to use moisturizer. I know that some of you are reading this and saying “but why a jar?”. Many people are worried about contamination but I keep small plastic spatulas in a plastic bag nearby and wash them off after each use. This is a thick cream but it absorbs pretty quickly. I do let it sit before applying anything else to make sure that all is absorbed.

3 new sun protection options from Kiehl’s Since 1851

This summer, Kiehl’s Since 1851 has introduced 3 NEW sun-protection formulas that address the whole body. From eyebrows to toenails, these three products equal full sun protection so you can play without worry until the sun sets.

Kiehl’s sent me these three new products to test:  Super Fluid UV Defense Sunscreen ($38-$61), Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector ($38), and Activated Sun Protector ($29).

Kiehl's sun protection
Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50+ has been around for a few years, but this is a new and improved version that is even more silky and non-greasy. This lightweight sunscreen is great for the face since it leaves a matte finish. What a wonderful option for under makeup! The formula is very silky and it’s a pleasure to put on – just be sure to shake it up well before applying.

So this is like a dream come true – sun protection for around the eye area that also brightens and covers dark circles. Clearly Corrective™ Dark Circle Perfector with SPF 30 has UVA/UVB protection, and the slight tint makes it a light concealer that is perfect for the beach or the pool. Ingredients include Vitamin C to reduce the appearance of under-eye circles, as well as caffeine to reduce puffiness. This just came out in June but is readily available online and in stores now.

This next product’s name is a mouthful! Activated Sun ProtectorTM Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Water-Light Lotion for Face and Body is exactly what your face and body need for really active days. It has broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, and the texture is like nothing I’ve ever tried before. It’s kind of watery and thin, but skin truly feels like silk after application. In addition to the sun protection, this really cool sunscreen has Vitamin E to help condition skin.

Kiehl’s is the best for samples and this line has great depth. I always discover something new when I visit!  – Lisa

Makeup Wars – Pore Relief

This week Makeup Wars has decided to focus on Skin Savers. This could be products for anything from wrinkles, blemishes, dark circles to my choice pore helpers. Even though skincare isn’t always exciting, it will be so interesting to see what the other bloggers have focused on. I can’t wait to read their posts and find ways to save my skin!

Makeup Wars - Pore Relief

Makeup Wars – Pore Relief

One of my problems is the size of my pores. Luckily no one walks around with magnifying glasses or I’d be shunned in society. As a teen I had way too many blackheads. Besides being shy as could be, I felt like this was the bane of my existence. As an adult I realize I’m lucky I had skin that oily back then because it’s kept me younger looking. But the end result is pores galore. My solution is to use products that make them look smaller and to exfoliate my skin a few times a week to keep my pores cleaner. I’ve chosen 5 of the products that I’m using to blur away this imperfection. I forgot about exfoliators so that will just have to be another time.

Kiehl's Micro-Blur Skin Perfector

Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector

KIEHL’S MICRO-BLUR SKIN PERFECTOR* – This is my newest product and I’m not ready to write a full review of it. At first I thought it was only a topical skin smoother but once I started reading about it I realized that this actually a treatment too. I haven’t used it long enough to see how it works over time but I’m enjoying this as my last step before applying foundation. It’s doing a good job in blurring my pores.

Mally Poreless Pore Defender (old packaging)

Mally Poreless Pore Defender (old packaging)

MALLY EVERCOLOR PORELESS FACE DEFENDER – I’ve mentioned this many times since it’s one of my most used products ever. I’m on my third one and that’s almost gone. I first received it in a QVC kit I bought and before it was gone, I purchased another. I use this over all my face makeup to help look as poreless as possible. The sponge it comes with is wonderful, just be careful not to use too much.

Purely Cosmetics Diamond Perfect Finish

Purely Cosmetics Diamond Perfect Finish

PURELY COSMETICS DIAMOND PERFECT FINISH * – I use either the Mally Face Defender or Purely Cosmetics Diamond Perfect Finish powder every day without fail. Not only does this very finely milled powder set my makeup for an entire day, it also helps blur imperfections. I’m in love with this powder as well as the Pre-Fixx Face Primer I talked about in my indie company review.

Miracle Skin Transformer Vanish

Miracle Skin Transformer Vanish

MIRACLE SKIN TRANSFORMER VANISH* – MST makes many great products and I love discovering them all but I think my favorite is VANISH. I didn’t realize how great this was when I first reviewed it over a year ago, but the more I use it the more I realize just how much I like it. It combines a serum with a primer to produce a gel that helps vanish fine lines and pores. In my original review I mention all the long term benefits. I’m ready for the illusion of porcelain skin with Vanish.

Youngblood Anti-Shine Mattifier

Youngblood Anti-Shine Mattifier

YOUNGBLOOD ANTI-SHINE MATTIFIER – I bought this at IMATS just before it became available to the public because I was so excited to find that one of my favorite companies had come out with a product to not only keep me shine free but also to make those pesky pores look smaller. I apply this before foundation so even though it seems similar to the Mally, it’s placement is better for me during makeup application rather than after. The packaging is great since the sponge is housed under the mattifier so it’s better for travel or taking with.

Rather than my going on for miles of more products tell me which of these you’ve used and any others that you’d recommend. Then join the other bloggers to see what Skin Savers they recommend. — Marcia


Put some space on your face with Kiehls

Check out this really cool social media contest – Kiehl’s ‘Put Some Space On Your Face’ gives you (well, actually your face!) an opportunity to travel with them to space.  The giveaway is in celebration of the new Kiehl’s Oil Eliminator line.  They sent its ‘hero’ product (24-Hour Anti-Shine Moisturizer For Men) into space. For real. The product was on a custom rig that was sent 20 miles above the surface of the earth.

Kiehls SpaceFace

You can see the video at www.kiehlsinspace.com and can also enter the giveaway there.  Just take a photo of yourself in mid-air then hashtag it #SpaceFace.  Random winners will win their face a trip to space via a 3D custom astronaut figurine with their face on it.  That figurine is attached to a shuttle and sent into the stratosphere.  After the figurines land, the winners are sent their personalized, space traveling action figures.

What is this new line that has inspired the space travel?  The OIL ELIMINATOR FOR MEN, brand new this month.  There are three products that tackle men’s oily skin, mattifying and reducing the appearance of pores.

Kiehls Oil Eliminator

So why the space travel?  It’s all in the ingredients.

Oil Eliminator uses Aerolite, an advanced material based on the science of aerogel, which has been used in space exploration (for example, as an insulating material on Mars Exploration Rover in 1997). Aerolite is the lightest solid material on Earth because it is composed of up to 99.98% air by volume, helping to provide a weightless feel on the skin. The substance is likened to a gel from which the liquid portion has been removed without causing the material to shrink in size or collapse. Due to its highly porous structure and large surface area, it is able to absorb FOUR TIMES its own weight in oil, providing efficient sebum absorption capabilities. Oil Eliminator 24-hour Anti-Shine Moisturizer, with Aerolite technology, helps reduce pore visibility and imperfections.

In general, men have different skin issues than women.  A man has more sebum-producing sebaceous glands, so they have more oil production and larger pores.  Plus they sweat more, which means every more shine and oily residue on their faces.  Kiehl’s three new products containing Aerolite address these concerns.

The Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Face Wash ($20) is a soap-free and sulfate-free cleanser.  It has crushed Apricot Seeds to help exfoliate, which also decreases the appearance of pores.  It doesn’t dry out the skin, and it does a terrific job of smoothing skin texture and getting rid of shine.

The Refreshing Shine Control Toner ($20) is a cooling spray that tones and also decreases the appearance of sweat and oil.  The Capryloyl Glycine dries up the bad stuff, but doesn’t dry out skin.

The 24-Hour Anti-Shine Moisturizer for Men ($27) is a lightweight moisturizer with Aerolite to absorb oil and sweat.  The result is a shine-free appearance and soft, hydrated skin. It also has Totara Wood Extract to diminish the appearance of pores.

My 21-year-old son, who has sensitive, oily, breakout prone skin, thinks this line is the bomb.  He gets the best results using the Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Face Wash in the shower, then toning with the Refreshing Shine Control Toner, and following with the 24-Hour Anti-Shine Moisturizer for Men.

This is a terrific line for men so be sure to take a look.  And don’t forget to put some space on your face!  Snap that photo then hashtag it #SpaceFace on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.  - Lisa
