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.

this stuff is just awesome! My face never felt so soft, my make up actually stays on all day without having to reapply and I love that! I was hesitant of BB creams but I am in love with this one for sure!! I will definitely purchase the full size from this day forward!

Great sunscreen
Sampled

I really like this product! It is perfect for running quick errands when I don't want to spend lots of time getting ready. Works well, with the light tint. Not too heavy at all.

Great for a trip to the beach
Sampled

I am one of those girls who always wears foundation. And I'm never comfortable going to the beach with nothing on my face. Though it's obviously not the same as wearing foundation, I loved using this non-greasy product. It gave me protection I needed and a hint of color. Will consider buying this one.

Nice
Sampled

The color wasn't perfect for my skin, however, when I rubbed it in it did blend nicely. It was a cool to get a sunscreen with a bit of tint even though it doesn't really create any coverage. I thought this product was nice.

Liked the spf 30. It didn't feel greasy at all and it matched my color well. Already have a similar product so won't be purchasing but liked the sample.
