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.

Best tinted face sunscreen ever!
SampledPurchased

I love this product and bought a full size. I think the price is way too extreme, but I really wanted some. It goes well under make-up, stays on all day long and is not greasy.

Ahh, sun screen without the greasy feeling!
SampledPurchased

Another product I purchased full size of before running out of my sample. I love hoe it goes on with the silky smooth feeling of minerals and no greasy residue what so ever. It does an excellent job and the beige tints even out skin tone. I apply a little powder here and there and I'm ready to go.

SPF that works as a primer and a skin perfector = love
Sampled

When i tried this product, I expected another sunscreen, but this is love! The mousse texture provides a non-greasy formula that glides smoothly over your skin. It minimizes pores, provides a smooth texture over skin, provided SPF, and manages oil for a matte finish all day. I applied moisturizer, the Coola sunscreen and then a mineral powder foundation. My skin hasn't look so smooth and perfect in years! The SPF is a bonus! I am going to be ordering the full size asap!

Great protection, nice tint
Sampled

I used this product several times when I'd be outside all day long and in the sun and I have to say it worked so well and it was a good alternative to heavy makeup or even a BB cream. I like the texture of the product and it felt like it absorbed really well.

Effective!

I usually hate applying sunscreen because they are usually oily or drying. I love how this is matted and it is very light. I also dislike how some sunscreen are very creamy and heavy, but this is perfect!

I love, love, loved it!

I am thrilled to have found a sunscreen/BB cream that I love. This is perfect for summertime! It goes on so smoothly and the tint is just enough for the beach. I like that it's matte! My skin is very reactive and I'm happy to say this formula gave me no issues. The SPF worked well for a day out in moderate sun. Will definitely buy full-size.

perfect all year round
Sampled

Coola tinted matte finish is perfect for any occasion. I bought the full size after receiving my sample. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft to touch, as well as keeping my face from looking shiny. Having a SPF that also can be used as a moisturizer is perfect. I used to have to use two products, and now all I need is this one that is so light that I forget I even have it on.
