Applying sunscreen on my face and my body are two very different rituals. I religiously wear SPF on my face and neck every day — even remembering to apply on those bare-faced mornings before I take my dog on a walk. It’s embedded into my routine, therefore, I do it. I’m willing to bet that I’m not the only one who doesn’t have this same routine for body SPF when not at the beach or poolside? I’m changing my ways on this one, and I have Kiehl’s Activated Sun Protector Sunscreen to thank.
It’s a powerful protectant but the formula is like lotion and nearly odorless. Two very important qualities if I’m slathering on sunscreen on say a Wednesday a.m. before heading into work. There’s more than sun protection happening here (though it is badass with UVA/B SPF 50), which is why it is proving to be easy to fit into my routine.
Kiehl’s boosted the formula with three antioxidants to help fight free radicals: Goji Berry, Vitamin E and Einkorn Wheat. Wondering what Einkorn Wheat is? I was too….apparently it is one of the earliest cultivated forms of wheat (talking 7500 BC times). Together, these join Kiehl’s patented photostable technology to produce an incredibly lightweight formula. It spreads so well, doesn’t leave a white cast and the broad spectrum will protect you in water for up to 80 minutes (though we recommend erring on the side of caution there and reapplying regularly, especially if you are of the perspiring type like we!)
With the heat wave we’ve been having this week in the Midwest, I am so thankful that I discovered this product. Just walking to work I feel the sun trying to age me.
Available now at Kiehl’s for $23.
