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 Primer
Sampled

This product smelled amazing, not too strong but distinctly fresh. I wore it as a base layer under powder foundation and it made my skin feel soft without feeling heavy. Overall, nice sample but not sure how inclined I am to buy the full size product.

Beach & Gym Essential
Sampled

I was excited when I received this product, as it is a mineral based, SPF 30, BB cream. I'm someone who needs to dab on a little bit of make-up before the beach or gym, and it held up wonderfully. It is very lightweight, has a gel-like texture and sits nicely underneath other make-up. Sadly, I didn't notice any scent from it, but for me it wasn't a deal breaker since the product still served it's purpose. It will be a great addition to my summer make-up routine!

I honestly wasn't quite sure what the point of this was. it just made my face feel dry instead of moisturized like I assumed it would .
