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

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!

Made my pores disappear!!

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.

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!

Very soft and lightweight

I hate wearing sunscreen but this product felt very sheer and powdery and then felt like nothing at all. And the light tint gives a little coverage so you get a little smoother look without looking like you're wearing make up.

Love this!

Really liked this BB cream! I'm a big fan of tinted moisturizers with sunscreen but a lot of them leave your face a bit shiny looking. This is a really nice product though and I love the matte finish!

Not my product
Sampled

I don't use tinted moisturizer but I gave this one ago, and it emphasized my dry flaky problem areas as I knew it would. It felt alright on the rest of my skin, but this is not the type of product I'd use, so it's just not a win for me.

I love tinted moisturizers! I really liked the matte finish of COOLA. Great for this time of year, when I just need a little color!

Greasy
Sampled

This felt really greasy and was a super weird orangey color. It was also hard to get off and left faint streaks when removing. I wouldn't recommend it. It also has a medicinal smell that I want a fan of.

Hydrating, goes on smoothly. Feels very nice and sheer on my skin. I really like it and it does not have a strong scent.
