If you’re spending a day on the beach, make sure to reapply this sunscreen every two hours.

COOLA

Birchbox Breakdown

COOLA’s mineral sunblock is everything we want in a daily SPF. The updated, eco-friendly formula is made with 70 percent organic ingredients and protects from both the UVA rays that lead to premature aging and the UVB rays that cause painful burns. Great for all skin types—especially those with breakout-prone and hyper-sensitive complexions—the transparent cream dries to a flattering matte finish, doubles as a primer, and won't leave behind a chalky white residue. The refreshing cucumber scent gives us yet another reason to love it.

How it Works

Unlike chemical sunscreens, which can take up to half an hour to kick into effect, mineral sunblocks start working right away. Plus, COOLA uses a proprietary method to maximize the effectiveness of their suncare products. The updated formula features two active ingredients—titanium and zinc dioxide—suspended in a moisturizing base to ensure a smooth, even application. Age-reversing antioxidants like evening primrose extract and borage seed oil deflect free radicals, while naturally water-resistant plankton makes the formula extra-durable.

How to Use

Smooth on a thin coat all over your face. Follow with makeup, or wear alone.

Best BB cream for dry skin!

Usually bb cream doesn't blend well on my face because my skin is so dry. But this formula is like a whipped mousse, and it does on perfectly smooth. I love it. Wish the price was a little better though.

Love the matte finish!

This sunscreen is perfect! My skin is slightly oily in spots and regular sunscreen makes it even more oily. This sunscreen gives excellent protection, smells great and it's mostly organic.

Great for oily skin!
Purchased

I get sort of oily skin in the summer months living in Texas and this little bottle of wonder works great at keeping my oil at bay and the added protection of mineral sunscreen is just a plus! Smells good too!

Helps with my skin problems!

I've been raving about this sunblock for a while now. It really helps clear up my skin and prevents summer time breakouts. It goes on super smooth and smells great. I absolutely love this product!

Tinted vs Not Tinted
Purchased

I got the tinted version of this sunscreen in one of my boxes. I liked the way it felt and it was actually a matte finish, but the tint didn't really do anything for me, that I noticed.
I really like this product; I might have noticed that there is a slight difference between the tinted and not-tinted but since I use this product and the sample under my make-up, it didn't really matter.

Love love it!
Purchased

Yes, double love because this sunscreen is amazing. I got the tinted coola sunscreen as a sample and couldn't wait to buy the full size but at that time, the tinted version was sold out. When I said I couldn't wait, I really mean I couldn't wait...so I bought the untinted version and it's just as good. I'm gonna wait till I run out of this one and buy the tinted version. I love coola and how truely matte the product is.

it's so incredibly light and airy, you can't feel it on your skin. light cucumber smell that's very natural, and not overpowering at all. only complaint is that the bottle showed up, and the pump doesn't work. the box is large, until you realize that half of the length is from the size of the plastic nozzle (and only has a small amount of product). size and dispenser are the only complaints keeping this from a 5 - product is amazing.

Not Oily!!
Purchased

I have super sensitive skin and this matte sunblock is perfect. I hate the oily feeling of most sunblocks, especially before heading outside for tennis or a workout. This goes on like a dream and seems to do it's job.
