Kiehl's Ultra Daily UV Defense SPF50 PA+++ Sunscreen

It was so nice of Kiehl's to give me a tube of the latest Ultra Daily UV Defense SPF50 PA+++ Sunscreen to try..

^ My Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV defense SPF50+++ sunscreen posing against the lovely handmade invitation card which I thought was printed when I received it at first glance.

^I have been using Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF50+++ sunscreen for the past 3 weeks..Its texture is really as light as feather ... It just melts into my skin effortlessly upon my skin, I do not even feel that there is another layer of lotion on my skin. There is also no greasy feeling since its oil free.

Gone were the days when sunscreens leave a whitish cast or give a thick feeling on our skin.. I must say this sunscreen does not have the SPF smell ( some sunscreen which I tried in the past, got a SPF smell which stay on even after I applied my makeup.. there is definitely no funny or awful smell for Kiehl's Ultra Light UV Defense SPF50+++ , because its fragrance free) I like the fact that it offers high protection yet comes in an ultra light texture that my skin welcome.  Another plus point is the tube is so cute and compact!

^ After applying Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF50+++ sunscreen onto my skin, there is no whitish cast or greasy feel.. ('',) I do not even feel that I just applied a sunscreen, its that ULTRA LIGHT!

Why we need sunscreen protection? What are the damages that UVA and UVB rays can bring? read on...

UVA- "A" for "Aging"
UVA penetrates the epidermis where connective tissue and blood vessels exist. The result is premature aging of the skin, known as cutaneous photoaging, which causes the skin to thin, sag, wrinkle and develop hyperpigmentation marks.

UVB - "B" for "Burning"
UVB rays stimulate the formulation of melanin, causing a significant pigmentation of the skin. This darkening effect will be evident after approximately 23 hours and is relatively long-lasting. A large dose of UVB radiation will cause acute sunburn, redness, burning sensation and blistering.

What does PA+++ mean?
PA stands for Protection grade of UVA. The PA rating system shows the level of protection against UVA rays(aging rays), with the highest index being PA+++ as extremely effective protection against UVA rays.

SPF - Sun Protection Factor
The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen against UVB rays (the ultraviolet radiation that causes sunburn.) The higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen offers.

CAUTION!! UVA Rays can penetrate windows, light clothing, car windshields, even on a cloudy please remember to apply sunscreen before leaving your home. ( best to include a good sunscreen in your last step of your skin care regime every morning)
