The Superhero Sunscreen You’ll Wear All Summer Long

Real talk: This year, over two million people will be diagnosed with skin cancer. The disease can affect anyone regardless of age, race, or location. But before you become a permanent cave dweller, consider this: Making sunscreen a part of your daily routine is the easiest and most effective thing you can do to protect yourself.

The only problem? Most sun protection products have icky chemical scents and goopy, pore-clogging formulas. Fortunately, COOLA’s heroic Tinted Matte SPF 30 for Face, which some of our lucky subscribers will be sampling this month, is different. Unlike your granny’s thick-as-molasses SPF, it has a mouse-like consistency. It's fortified with organic shea butter to minimize existing signs of aging and primrose extract to deflect free radicals. The ultra-lightweight lotion dries to a silky, matte finish and leaves behind a subtle tint that glosses over imperfections. And it does all of this without leaving behind that telltale sunscreen scent.

Birchbox Community Manager Juliette Dallas Feeney explains why it’s become her new summer go-to in this video. Check it out!
