If you’re looking for an untinted mineral SPF, check out COOLA's SPF 30 Matte Finish Cucumber for Face.

COOLA®

Birchbox Breakdown

Slathering on sunscreen can seem more like a chore than a proper primping ritual, but COOLA’'s standout facial tint has us (gasp) actually looking forward to applying SPF. Made with 70 percent organic ingredients, —including plenty of free radical–fighting antioxidants, the silky, nongreasy formula dries down to a matte finish (and does so without an overpowering scent!). Two skin-safe mineral sunblocks——titanium and zinc dioxide——are suspended in a moisturizing base to ensure a smooth, even application, and the subtle beige tint evens out skin tone and masks flaws. Shea butter naturally softens skin. Works best for light to medium complexions.

How to Use

Before using, shake bottle well to ensure this sunscreen is well mixed (when it is, it'll be creamy, not watery). Then smooth a thin layer onto skin.

Light & airy without the messy oils
Purchased

I have a face that tends to get very oily and greasy in my t-zone area. I received the COOLA Tinted Matte SPF 30 sample in my March box and was hesitant at first. Once I tried it, I fell in love! The smoothness of this product is outstanding, and it gives my face the perfect layer of finish before putting my makeup on.

Best of all? No more greasiness in my t-zone! Amazing? I think so! Bonus that there's an SPF 30! Woohoo!

In the morning, I first put on my moisturizer, follow with the COOLA Matte and then finish with a loose powder. Perfection!

So smooth
Sampled

I never thought I would be so happy with a product that is primarily sunscreen. The tint is very slight but it evens skin tone without being cakey and oily. It lasts all day and is great for days spent outdoors. I will definitely be looking to purchase the full sized for the hot summer!

Made my pores disappear!!
Sampled

I enjoyed this product because I have oily skin and this had a perfectly matte finish that made my pores disappear. I also enjoyed that it had a high spf without smelling like it.

Works like a fabulous BB cream!
Sampled

COOLA facial tint goes on smooth and leaves your skin feeling unbelievably soft. I would definitely compare it more to a BB cream than to a tinted sunscreen any day. In fact as I used the COOLA facial tint sample I forgot all about it being a sunscreen. I love the matte finish that it gave my skin. It totally evened my skin tone and hide dark spots and acne. The color was perfect for my fair skin tone.

amazing
SampledPurchased

I received this product in my first birchbox and bought it almost immediately. The matte finish is great and it feels wonderful on your skin - no suncreeny/lotiony/slimey stuff. The tint is very faint but it does the trick if you don't feel like putting make up on afterwards.

Not for dry skin
Sampled

After a few minutes, my face started to flake and scale. This doesn't moisturizer enough for dry skin, and it doesn't apply well over moisturizer, so it doesn't work for me.
