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. The silky, mousse-like consistency is a far cry from the greasy lotions we’re used to, and it gives us lasting sun protection without an overpowering scent. Made with 70 percent organic ingredients—including plenty of antioxidants—the eco-friendly formula dries down to a matte finish. The subtle beige tint evens out skin tone and masks flaws. It works best for light to medium complexions.

How it Works

This is no ordinary SPF. COOLA suspended two skin-safe mineral sunblocks—titanium and zinc dioxide—in a moisturizing base to ensure a smooth, even application. Shea butter naturally softens skin. 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

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!!

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.

Wished it were perfect...

My current BB Cream is not the most natural product to say the least. Which was why I was looking forward to this sample. It washed me out so completely, that my SO noticed it! Wish it was tinted a darker.

My mineral sunscreen search is over
SampledPurchased

This is it. The one. It just doesn't get better than this. I've tried and bought nine of them and hands down, this is the best one by a long stretch. My only wish is that it was available in a higher SPF 50 too. Coola makes my son's Hang Ten mineral sunscreen which comes in SPF 30 and 50. How about it Coola?

Great brand, didn't work for me in this instance. :(

I was excited when I saw Coola in my Bbox last month and REALLY excited when I saw a bb cream with great SPF! I use a bb cream (Marcelle) almost daily and love the SPF option. I used it and proceeded with my daily makeup routine and went to work. By mid-day, my skin was feeling very tight and almost itchy, no bueno. When I got back home, I noticed it had zinc in it...me and zinc don't mix well. I love Coola, but this particular product isn't going to work for me. Oh, well.

Nice matte finish

I like that it provides a smooth matte finish and the SPF benefits. I sometimes have issues with oily skin in my t-zone and currently use another product to achieve this same effect - however my current product does not have the SPF protection. I'm considering purchasing once it gets a little closer to summer and I'll need that protection.

Great product

I really liked this product, I have very sensitive fair skin and have had scares with skin cancer so I'm always looking for a good sunscreen that won't irritate my skin. This product was perfect for me! Gentle on my sensitive skin while giving me SPF30 and not leaving my face feely oily from sunscreen
