COOLA

Birchbox Breakdown

Of all the things we expect out of an SPF, pleasant smells fall in the “unlikely” category. That’s why we were so pleasantly surprised to discover COOLA’s citrusy formula, which gets its refreshing natural scent from a trio of orange peel, lemon peel, and tangerine peel oils. Made with 97 percent organic plant inactive ingredients, the sunblock goes on clear and the convenient spray helps us reach all those nooks and crannies we’d miss otherwise. Great for all skin types, it’s a must for summer.

How it Works

Four safe sunscreens—oxinoxate, octocrylene, octisalate, and avobenzone—absorb both UVA and UVB rays to leave skin protected. Organic algae extract and aloe vera moisturize skin, while cucumber and strawberry extracts are high in antioxidants. Organic red raspberry oil provides an added dose of natural sun protection.

How to Use

Mist all over your body. Apply at least fifteen minutes prior to sun exposure.

Alcohol Denat. (ORGA­NIC­), Algae Extract (ORGA­NIC­), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (ORGA­NIC­), Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Reticulata (Tangerine) Peel Oil, Cucumis Sativus (ORGANIC Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Fragaria Vesca (ORGANIC Strawberry) Fruit Extract, Glycerin, Hydrogenated Methyl Abietate, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Mimosa Tenuiflora Bark Extract, Rubus Idaeus (ORGANIC Red Raspberry) Seed Oil.

Easy to use and smells great
Purchased

It goes on almost completely dry and smells great. Not sure about the spray mechanism, so I bought the lotion this time, but Coola is a great brand and the ingredients are pretty safe, comparably, for a sunscreen. Its not the best for use in the wind, either, hence why I am switching to the lotion for my repurchase. Hopefully it goes on as dry, because I love that it doesn't feel like I have a thick, heavy, greasy sunscreen on when I wear this product.

Smells great
Purchased

I really like that this spray is organic and smells nothing like what you expect sunscreen to smell like. I bought it for my boyfriend (a firefighter who fly fishes on his day off) because he's in the sun and doesn't like to put on sunscreen or smell funny all day. He is a fan of this! He says the smell is nice but not overwhelming.

Wonderful sunscreen I can wear all day!
Purchased

I love the product. It smells wonderfully citrusy, nothing like the normal sunscreen smell. It also is great on my skin, not oily and it doesn't dry out my skin if I wear it all day. I'm really fair skinned and the product gave me great coverage.

love, love, love this

fair complexion & melanoma in family. Learned about this brand in Rosemary Beach, FL and am a HUGE sunscreen junkie. Love the smell, the texture, the natural "non-chemical" ingredients & knowing I'm using a mostly organic product. Melanoma is no joke - worth it to get quality sunscreen.

Great brand; pina colada smells better
Purchased

I LOVE the coola brand and have for over a year! As a nurse I feel it's safe to use on my 2 year old nephew plus the spray is easy to use. The Pina Colada smells amazing, so I had high hopes for the citrus mimosa. It doesn't smell bad by any means. It's just not as fun and fruity as the pina colada one.

Great scent. Not enough product for the cost.
Purchased

The Citrus Mimosa smells good. The product covers well and dries clear. It doesn't leave white residue like their rub-on products. The downside to the product is the price is expensive for the amount of product that you receive. The canister might be the same size as other brands but it feels as if you get half the amount of product as other brands (not proven - going off of feeling the canister almost empty Day 2). I went on vacation at a hot sunny beach resort and by Day 2 of 6, it felt like the can was almost empty. The product had probably been applied only 6 times by then. I wouldn't recommend relying on it on a trip but maybe if you were nearby home for a day trip to the beach only.

Super lightweight and powerful

Love this brand so much better than drugstore spray sunscreens. I put SPF on every day but I don't want it to feel greasy or smell like I doused myself in sunscreen. Product is perfect for everyday use!

Great for you and the kids
Purchased

I was looking for a natural sunscreen to use on my kids as well. I wanted a spray and Coola met both requirements. My kids like the smell. We live in southern CA and are outside a lot. This product lasts and keeps our skin protected.

Better than lotion
Purchased

I'm so much more likely to use this spray on sunscreen than I am to slather on yet another layer of lotion. This is easy to put on, smells great and feels like nothing. The protection seems to work well. I like this a ton and will buy it again!
