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.

not sweat proof

I wore this out hiking and got a little sunburn. Its thin and lightweight but it doesn't do the best protecting

Booooo! Chemical sunscreens, thumbs down
Sampled

I always choose reef-safe sunscreens. Since I have this sample I might use it as a backup, but I would never put my money towards a company that uses chemical sunscreens with nano-particles. Gotta protect our water!

That being said, I’m sure this is fine as far as moisturizers go. Smell is nice, texture seems alright. Nothing special about it.

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.

I wasn’t a fan of this lotion. It didn’t too much and I just never used it. May work for other people but not for me.

FANTASTIC sunscreen.
Sampled

This sunscreen is great! It seems impossible but I swear it nourishes my skin and leaves it looking even better the day after I use it. I highly recommend. Most COOLA sunscreens are great but this one is even better.

NICE

I really like this moisturizer/sunscreen. Its really cooling so good to use in the morning. The cucumber smell is kind of strong but it doesn't last long. My face felt moisturized but not greasy.
