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.

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.

Suncare that actually cares for your skin
Sampled

Love love this sunscreen. I typically use another brand of department store sunscreen but have switched to Coola because the formula goes on more smoothly and the ingredients are closer to what I like in skincare. Bonus: Unlike other sunscreens this one smells lightly of cucumber so you don’t walk around smelling like a pina colada all day :)

Amazing for the Beach
Sampled

Put this on after you get out of the beach and the cooling effect with moisture will help you feel more relaxed as well as your skin. A+ !!

Nice product
Sampled

This smells and feels much better thanI expected! I am picky about any moisturizer I use on my face because I hate feeling like something is on my face but his was light and made my skin feel great. It also smells great.
Another plus was that it never made my hands or neck feel sticky and gross, I was outside in 90+ degree weather with a bunch of kids and it stayed so well I forgot I had it on.
