Birchbox Breakdown

This classic sunblock has everything we want in a daily SPF. The eco-friendly formula is made with 70 percent certified organic ingredients and protects from both UVA rays that lead to premature aging and UVB rays that cause painful burns. The skin-balancing formula features vitamin C-rich strawberry extracts to soothe and tone lackluster skin while age-reversing antioxidants like evening primrose, acai, and linseed oils deflect free radicals. Plus, the refreshing cucumber scent gives us yet another reason to love the lightweight formula.

Nice moisturizer, not so nice ingredients
Sampled

I really like the smell and consistency of this moisturizer. It went on really smooth and absorbed nicely. It is not heavy at all but still does it job. It uses Avobenzone as the ingredient for sun protection, which is a pretty good ingredient. Zinc oxide or Titanium oxide would be preferred. Avobenzone also has relatively high rates of skin allergy so if you have sensitive skin, maybe try another product.

great except for lingering smell
Purchased

I needed an everyday face sunscreen and bought a full-size tube of this. Texture and feel are great - definitely lightweight and absorbs well. My only reservation is the cucumber smell, which is nice initially...but always ends up smelling very strange on my hands. Now I just wash my hands really thoroughly after application, but when I forget the lingering smell is bothersome. I'll probably try a different brand when I've finished this bottle.

This is my favorite brand!
Sampled

I love this brand of sunscreen! I use almost all of their products and I love them! This sunscreen smells good and is light enough to use for everyday use. People don't even have to know you are wearing sunscreen. It's not oily and doesn't make your skin look dewy.

Nice, but...

I got very few uses out of this but..from what I did try of it, it was effective on my face for a day on the river and the city. Smells nice.

Love Coola

I love the Coola matte and this was just as great. Love the alternatives to drugstore sunscreens for the face.

Love then cucumber scent

Cucumber is one of my favorite scents and so I was very excited when I received this sample. I'm pretty fair skinned so I'm always in need of a product like this. The consistency was great and it absorbed very well.

Cucumber not Cute

I'm bored of the cucumber smell. It reminds me of bath and body works and has a kinda chemically undertone. That being said, I think this was probably the nicest quality facial sunscreen I've used recently - felt silky and smooth! Didn't sting all when I accidentally got some in my eye. But, looking at the ingredients, so many chemicals!!! Is chemically sunscreen really the only option for effective sunscreen? Ugh, I dunno.
