If you’re spending a day on the beach, make sure to reapply this sunscreen every two hours.

COOLA®

Birchbox Breakdown

COOLA’s mineral sunblock is everything we want in a daily SPF. The updated, eco-friendly formula is made with 70 percent organic ingredients and protects from both the UVA rays that lead to premature aging and the UVB rays that cause painful burns. Great for all skin types—especially those with breakout-prone and hyper-sensitive complexions—the transparent cream dries to a flattering matte finish, doubles as a primer, and won't leave behind a chalky white residue. The refreshing cucumber scent gives us yet another reason to love it.

Nice product for oily skin.
Purchased

I have oily skin and I have tried numerous products over the years. This is one of the best I have tried and I will purchase again. It goes on smoothly with a kind of white finish to it that is not greasy or shiny. Once you put on some type of cover up on top, the whiteness fades away. I spent several days in the hot AZ sun and no sunburn so it works. Try it!

Good for outdoors
Purchased

I've heard many things about this brand and figured it was time I give it a try since my daily sunscreen was running out. It is a good brand however, I have a tan complexion so when I rub this on I get a purple tinge. I have to rub in VERY well to get the tinge out. So this may not be an inconvenience for most it is for me when Im rushing to get out the door.

I received this in my February box, and being on the East Coast - there was still snow outside and no need for facial sun protection. Now that it is May, sun is out, and I am spending more time outside, I tried this product out for the first time this past weekend. I love the texture. So smooth and creamy - not oily or sticky. The BB cream is really nice. Being brown complected it actually had a tone to it, that kind of looked like way-too-light foundation. Even after I rubbed it in, it still was a lighter color than my brown skin. I used it on my boyfriend who has very light skin and it blended, no problem. Overall I liked the feel of this, but the coloring is an issue for me, and I will not be making this into a purchase.

Totally love this
SampledPurchased

I don't like wearing face sunscreens because most are heavy and feel very oily. But the Coola blends in instantly and almost feels like a powder finish. LOVE LOVE LOVE! I will order this again and again. No more greasy drugstore brands for me!

Great Product - though apply in the mirror!

I really like the versatility of this product. It goes on smooth. Feels silky and serves as a great light-feeling SPF. Only advice - apply in the mirror or you might have slight powder streaks.

It's amazing how light-weight this is, it makes you wonder if you are using enough for it to be effective sunscreen.

The shade is a good match. I do appreciate that this is a product that provides sun protection however I feel that the texture was a little too dry causing it to not go on very smooth. I currently use a similar product that I am more satisfied with. The size of the sample was good.

I loved that this sunscreen was made from organic ingredients. Most products like this have so many chemicals in them. I have sensitive skin so Coola was perfect for me.
