Don’t forget about the rest of your face: we use COOLA’s Tinted Matte SPF 30 in place of our regular tinted moisturizer to hide flaws while protecting skin from UV damage.

COOLA®

Birchbox Breakdown

There’s a time and a place for punchy lipsticks and sparkly glosses, but when we want to keep things simple we rely on this no-fuss, SPF 30 balm. It comes in a travel-friendly tube and provides broad spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Made with 70 percent organic ingredients, the food-grade (read: practically edible) formula is enriched with vitamins and antioxidants to moisturize lips and combat fine lines. We love how it has a pleasant, non-heavy texture and delivers the subtlest hint of sheen.

How it Works

Four safe sunscreens—oxinoxate, octocrylene, octisalate, and avobenzone—team up to keep lips protected from the sun. Moisturizing ingredients like shea butter, beeswax, and jojoba oil soften skin, while raspberry seed extracts and avocado butters are rich in antioxidants.

How to Use

Swipe on a coat before you head outside, and reapply throughout the day.

Diethylhexyl 2,6-Naphthalate (Sunscreen), Butyrospermum Parkii (ORGANIC Shea Butter), Copernicia Cerifera (ORGANIC Carnauba) Wax, Rubus Idaeus (ORGANIC Raspberry) Seed Extract, Mentha Piperita (ORGANIC Peppermint) Oil, Tocopherol (Antioxidant), Simmondsia Chinensis (ORGANIC Jojoba) Seed Extract, Persea Gratissima (ORGANIC Avocado) Oil, Lecithin (ORGANIC), Dog (Rosa Canina) Rose Hips, Cocos Nucifera (ORGANIC Coconut) Oil, Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C Palmitate), Aloe Barbadensis (ORGANIC Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice.

Hope it works

I always wear sunscreen, but it didn't even occur to wear SPF lip balm. Excited to try this out outdoors. The balm apply smoothly and is not scented.

Best lip balm ever!
Purchased

I'm sensitive to scents, there are a lot I do not like, but this one smells delicious and since it's practically edible I don't feel so bad wanting to eat it. I love that it protects my lips from UVA and UVB rays and since I work out in the sun a lot it's a must for me!

Subtle

I already use a different brand for a BB cream with SPF 40. I wanted to see if this product was good enough to switch. It feels good on my skin but didn't have as much coverage like my other tinted sunscreen.

Great for beach days
Purchased

This is a nice moisturing, protective lip gloss. I like having an SPF factor in it. Works well with a colored lip gloss also.

Hmmmm....
Purchased

Not too impressed right off the bat.... Have to press pretty hard to get it on my lips. Goes on kinda "dry" and doesn't MOISTURIZE my lips at all. I think this is probably a summer product (in the sun) for sun protection, not necessarily a moisturizing product. Bought a PIXI at the same time and that will definitely be a re-purchase. I'll save this COOLA for summer.

Smooth and Sweet

Full size samples make me smile, and this product makes smiling even easier. The formula is light, not sticky, and you'll want to reapply throughout the day because you'll love it so much.

Where most lip balms and chapsticks feel gloopy, or feel like they're not doing anything and so make you want to gob them on compulsively, COOLA's product feels like it's working its magic almost immediately. Lips feel smoother, softer, and enriched. You want to put on more because you want the feeling to grow, not because you're thinking, "Geez, when does this stuff kick in?!" After 24 hours, I felt like I literally had a spa treatment for my mouth.

...Once I wrestled the stick back from my husband, that is. The scent is sweetly, pleasantly neutral, and even he appreciated the feel of the balm. (He's a self-proclaimed chapstick addict.) He commented that it wasn't, "Too girly," and appreciated that it didn't look shiny, wasn't tinted, and didn't call an excessive amount of attention to his lips. The SPF factor was an added bonus.

From a practical, technical standpoint, the swivel stick works smoothly, and the lid has a nice, tight snap-fit. It's not going to come undone in my purse and get mashed all over everything. The light blue is pretty and summery, and the thick base is easy to grip and maneuver. I don't feel like I'm thumping a huge crayon into my face, nor do I feel like I need a mirror to detail a tiny pencil around my lips - the size is perfect.

It's a great find, and I know I'm going to breeze through the sample stick. It's a definite reorder for me!
