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.

Love this
Purchased

I really like this matte version ! It keeps my face matte and does not get oily or shiny. It feels like a silicone primer when applying. It does not break me out . It does have a little bit of white cast when you first apply and you do have to rub this in good. The cast seems to go away. Not drying at all. I have tried the original version and like that one for colder months.

Love Coola but not this matte finish
Purchased

I had previously sampled a Coola moisturizer which I loved but I did not like this product. First of all the dispensing mechanism does not work very well so it is hard to get the lotion out. It goes on with a heavy white tinge that is hard to rub in. And it made my skin dry out. So while I will not be purchasing this product again, I was happy with the non matte facial moisturizer.

perfect and natural!
Purchased

Feels nice, smells nice and it doesn't have all the nasty chemical ingredients that a lot of face sunscreens have. It doesn't make me break out either!!

Ordered that day
Purchased

I got this sample in a past box, but had not tried it until this weekend. As I was running out the door for a St. Louis Cardinal's game, I grabbed the Coola SPF 30 on my way out the door. As I applied the product, I was in awe by the silkiness and ease. It was amazing. I ordered a full container that night. I can't wait to use it again.

finally a matte sunscreen without breaking out
Purchased

I have super oily skin and am very acne prone. Sunscreen and I were sworn enemies before this stuff. Now I don't have to choose between breaking out and looking like a oil slick. Perfect for pool parties and the beach with friends when you don't want to look too made up and don't want to burn either!

Just OK
Purchased

I had received a COOLA product in my box, and thought I would try this matte sunscreen for the summer. I do like the matte finish and the fact that it doesn't leave any residue, even under makeup. But the bottle is incredibly annoying (sunscreen just squirts out all over the place... more product ends up in my sink than on my hands) and I don't really notice the cucumber scent. An OK product, but I probably won't buy it again.

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.

Excellent Product
Purchased

I really enjoy using this natural sunblock that isn't heavy or greasy on my skin. Works well as a primer too.
