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.

coola mineral sunscreen

This product goes on silky smooth and leaves a slight shine. This gives off a healthy glow. This product is light and doesn't leave your skin feeling sticky or chalky.

Think I like it......

So first the "bad". This sample tube was a nice size and in line with the other samples received. BUT there was only a tiny bit inside and I had to push, squeeze, and twist to get enough out to actually put on. Now the GOOD ~ what I did get on felt very nice. It was thick, but did not feel as greasy as other face creams with sunscreen. I wish the sample was filled a bit more so I could try it one more time before purchasing......

For a face sunscreen it seemed a bit too greasy, not sure you could actually use this as a primer (as suggested).

Advice? Keep looking.

Great smell. Smooth. Works wonders. Haven't purchased the full size yet but Im definitely considering it. The price is right for this. I don't really like using a lot of things on my face but this felt nice.

I used a small dab of this every morning. The matte finish makes this product a great primer. I love the way this product makes my skin look and feel.

Being brand new to bb creams, I had no idea what to expect. I am very fair and worried that it would be too dark for me. It was perfect! I loved the way it went on and it feels great on! Definitely not greasy!!

This sunscreen is so light and soft! I like that it's not greasy and heavy. I breakout from some sunscreens, and this is not one of them! Love it!!

Has a different packaging/spout than the tinted sunscreen. It is a great everyday moisturizer with a good matte finish for applying makeup over.

It went on smooth and left my skin feeling soft. I liked that it was tinted. The smell was nice.
