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.

Light but does make my face feel like powder! Like it for days when going to the gym or to the park without caking in makeup

I love the matte finish because it didn't make my face feel greasy or oily and the tint blended very well on my face and didn't make me look paler

Loved!

I hate putting sunscreen on my face because it feels heavy and often causes me to break out. Not this stuff! It feels so nice and light on my face and goes on smoothly. I will definitely be repurchasing!

I love this sunscreen brand it is great for the face, although birch box got my shade completely wrong I love that they have tinted "sunscreen" I think that is such a time-saving idea.

This product was light and airy, but didn't provide the coverage or tint that I need on a daily basis. Very lightweight though, liked that!
