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.

COOLA Tint worked like a charm.
Sampled

The COOLA Tint had a fast drying, even looking, clean feel on the face. It was nice that it didn't make my complexion look ruddy by the end of the day, as a lot of tinted face SPF's do.

30 SPF - amazing
Sampled

this is great! lotions for your face are usually SPF 15 (which doesn't do very much to protect your skin from harmful UV rays) but this one is SPF 30 so that is amazing. And to boot, it is tinted matte, which works to even out skin tone

A wonderful weekend product
Sampled

When you want the "no makeup" look, this is a fantastic product. I love it for weekend wear. It provides just enough tint and coverage to not be ugly, with the SPF you need to be protected. The texture requires a little getting used to. But, once on and distributed across the face you kind of appreciate what seems like an odd texture at the start.

The one I've been looking for!
Sampled

I've tried a lot of tinted moisturizers and even just moisturizers with SPF. This one has just the right amount of color and (finally!) a respectable amount of protection from harmful sun rays. I ADORE the way this feels when I put it on. It's the richest, smoothest moisturizer I've tried.

Loved this sunscreen! The formula is light and airy. And when it hits your skin it feels great. Tinted for a little color too! Bought the full size.
