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.

How it Works

Unlike chemical sunscreens, which can take up to half an hour to kick into effect, mineral sunblocks start working right away. Plus, COOLA uses a proprietary method to maximize the effectiveness of their suncare products. The updated formula features two active ingredients—titanium and zinc dioxide—suspended in a moisturizing base to ensure a smooth, even application. Age-reversing antioxidants like evening primrose extract and borage seed oil deflect free radicals, while naturally water-resistant plankton makes the formula extra-durable.

How to Use

Smooth on a thin coat all over your face. Follow with makeup, or wear alone.

This product is not only a sun protector but also is matte. It does not give an oily appearance and glides on like butter. It is perfect for everyday and is a better option that straight up sunscreen.

Greasy

Did not like much about this product. Found it to be too greasy for my already oily skin. Will not be purchasing.

felt greasy
Sampled

This works okay, but I would definitely not purchase this product. Even though it says it leaves your skin matte, it felt really greasy going on. It didn't smell like cucumbers to me at all. I'll stick with my current SPF. This might work great for others, but it's not for me.

Smooth Finish

This really added a smooth quality to my skin. It didn't feel too heavy either. I did not use it as my only sunscreen but I would recommend as a moisturizer.

Love the scent!

I love the scent of this sunscreen. I wish the consistency was a little smoother but good overall sunscreen for the face.

smells good

Nice smell, goes on light and dry. I like that it is tinted. I don't think I'd use it in place of my Elta sunscreen, which is moisturizing.

Goes on really smooth
Sampled

This is a nice, silky product that is weightless once you have it on your face. The price is a bit off-putting, since I have similar products in my beauty stash that do approximately the same job. If I ever saw it on sale, I might purchase it or take time to look at other products made by this company. I wouldn't seek it out necessarily.
