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.

I like the light feel of the tinted lotion. Love that it has 30 SPF. Great option for all basic needs. Went on smoothly.

great face

Felt amazing on my skin, no greasy sun screen feel. Also, the tint worked really well with my tone, didn't even feel like I needed other make up, which was especially nice for the beach!

Outdoor essential

i like this product for days off at the lake or pool. I can put it on my face and get moisture, sunscreen, and some color. Im not sure if i like how it layers with other makeup, wears best alone; with maybe just some mascara.

more happy with sample than product
SampledPurchased

I loved the sample, and thought it looked great for summer. Once I purchased the full size product, the packaging looks good...but doesn't come out well. Also feels much more oily than I remembered from the sample.

Doesn't even feel like sunscreen
Sampled

This was my favorite sample to date! Sunscreen aside, this product goes on so smooth and it has an almost powder feel to it once it's rubbed in. It minimized pores and helped my skin feel clean and clear. The SPF value was an added bonus! I have very fair skin so I was a little wary about it being tinted, but it was not detectable at all.

This product worked great for me on lazy days when I didn't want to use primer. The texture is nice and it spreads evenly onto your skin!

Definitely Not the Best
Sampled

The texture of the tint is really nice, it's a very light mousse that makes you think you'll need more than you actually do but little goes a long way! I only gave it 2 stars because it goes on very streaky and looks very powdery or like I have dry skin. I ended up throwing it away
