If you’re looking for an untinted mineral SPF, check out COOLA's SPF 30 Matte Finish Cucumber for Face.

COOLA

Birchbox Breakdown

Slathering on sunscreen can seem more like a chore than a proper primping ritual, but COOLA’s standout facial tint has us (gasp) actually looking forward to applying SPF. The silky, mousse-like consistency is a far cry from the greasy lotions we’re used to, and it gives us lasting sun protection without an overpowering scent. Made with 70 percent organic ingredients—including plenty of antioxidants—the eco-friendly formula dries down to a matte finish. The subtle beige tint evens out skin tone and masks flaws. It works best for light to medium complexions.

How it Works

This is no ordinary SPF. COOLA suspended two skin-safe mineral sunblocks—titanium and zinc dioxide—in a moisturizing base to ensure a smooth, even application. Shea butter naturally softens skin. 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 a thin layer onto clean skin.

Light & airy without the messy oils
Purchased

I have a face that tends to get very oily and greasy in my t-zone area. I received the COOLA Tinted Matte SPF 30 sample in my March box and was hesitant at first. Once I tried it, I fell in love! The smoothness of this product is outstanding, and it gives my face the perfect layer of finish before putting my makeup on.

Best of all? No more greasiness in my t-zone! Amazing? I think so! Bonus that there's an SPF 30! Woohoo!

In the morning, I first put on my moisturizer, follow with the COOLA Matte and then finish with a loose powder. Perfection!

So smooth
Sampled

I never thought I would be so happy with a product that is primarily sunscreen. The tint is very slight but it evens skin tone without being cakey and oily. It lasts all day and is great for days spent outdoors. I will definitely be looking to purchase the full sized for the hot summer!

Made my pores disappear!!
Sampled

I enjoyed this product because I have oily skin and this had a perfectly matte finish that made my pores disappear. I also enjoyed that it had a high spf without smelling like it.

Love it!
Sampled

Love this product - found it light with just a bit of coverage, great for "no makeup" days. Can be a bit oily, which seems to be from separation in the tube, but some gentle shaking seems to address that. Glides on smoothly, feels great on.

Silky and Matte
Sampled

I live in South Carolina and ever since I moved here each summer has been a battleground on my face. I am still constantly searching for the perfect BB/CC/Foundation that won't clog up my pores or leave me oily by mid day. The humidity here is brutal. This CC is silky, and has a nice matte finish. It is beyond easy to blend into your skin and majorly minimizes redness and discoloring. However I still needed a concealer/facial highlighting pen on acne and acne scars and you need quite a bit to cover your face. However, I am definitely buying the full size.

The tint is okay for my light tone. Doesn't feel oily or heavy. I like the fact that it is made with organic ingredients, antioxidants, and eco-friendly is a hug plus.

Just had a chance to use this product. Nice texture. I like the non-greasy feel to it. I have medium to medium dark skin tone, so it didn't cover as well as I'd like, but it was okay.

good for a sunscreen
Sampled

Im not real big into the sunscreen things on my face. i know, not a good thing. but i did actually like this. I like that it had a slight tint, def not good for a cover up, but nice for underneath other makeup. no real bad sunscreen smell which was nice. And it is pretty light and smooth when u put it on.

Works good although I am not a big fan of liquid makeup. Like the light feeling and that it has SPF.

Great
Sampled

I tend to have problems with any face products that contain an SPF. I used my sample during a trip to Costa Rica and was pleasantly surprised. It had great staying power, was not greasy, and had great sun protection! The tint also worked well for my fairly pale skin with red undertones.
