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.

Great items I've never seen before

I love all the sample sizes so I can try new things each month. The leave-in conditioner was my favorite of the month.

New Fave BB

This stuff really is great. I get blackheads when I use too much makeup, so I've begun to subsitute this for days when I dont want to apply makeup. It achieves a matte finish while keeping my skin fairly healthy and unreactive. LOVE THIS STUFF!!

Fresh and Healthy
Sampled

Trying this product, my skin feels fresh and healthy. It has a nice, mild fragrance and goes on smooth. It does not feel greasy or heavy on my skin, which is important for me. I enjoy that it contains the SPF, which is important for anti-aging, so I love that! Have been considering buying this as a full size because it has been consistently a good product.

works well for a basic sunscreen
Sampled

I'm not the biggest fan of this product because it didn't blend into my skin well. But I think for the basic purpose of a facial sunscreen, it works well and smells nice!

LOVE this!

Finally, a light, non greasy sun protection for the face. I love the no make up look... This cream is velvety smooth and minimized the appearance of pores. It's probably the best sun protection for the face I've tried. This would also work well under makeup.
