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.
I've heard many things about this brand and figured it was time I give it a try since my daily sunscreen was running out. It is a good brand however, I have a tan complexion so when I rub this on I get a purple tinge. I have to rub in VERY well to get the tinge out. So this may not be an inconvenience for most it is for me when Im rushing to get out the door.3
I really like the versatility of this product. It goes on smooth. Feels silky and serves as a great light-feeling SPF. Only advice - apply in the mirror or you might have slight powder streaks.4
I received this in my February box, and being on the East Coast - there was still snow outside and no need for facial sun protection. Now that it is May, sun is out, and I am spending more time outside, I tried this product out for the first time this past weekend. I love the texture. So smooth and creamy - not oily or sticky. The BB cream is really nice. Being brown complected it actually had a tone to it, that kind of looked like way-too-light foundation. Even after I rubbed it in, it still was a lighter color than my brown skin. I used it on my boyfriend who has very light skin and it blended, no problem. Overall I liked the feel of this, but the coloring is an issue for me, and I will not be making this into a purchase.3
This sunscreen smells great and doesn't leave a shine on my skin. I also love that it's a mineral sunscreen that isn't chalky white.5
Like many other reviewers, I notice that it gives a blue or purple cast to the skin unless rubbed in well. I'm very pale in the winter so it works great then, but if I get darker in the summer it might not work (or be a high enough SPF to prevent the getting darker!) also, important to note that the cucumber smell REALLY leans towards sushi cucumber rather than the cucumber melon scent of our youth. I was expecting one and got the other and was a bit surprised! I do love this in place of a primer in the winter, it's important to find a good winter SPF and I'm much more concerned with looking matte in the winter (it's going to be shiny times in the summer no matter what!)4
The skin on my face is very sensitive, but this stuff doesn't irritate it at all. I also like how the texture isn't super thick, so it feels very light on my face. It also smells really good.5
PROS: First facial sunscreen I've tried that isn't super greasy and doesn't make me feel like I have a layer of oil on top of my face. It's truly matte and dries to a silky finish. Also, doesn't have a bunch of dangerous ingredients.
CONS: I'm not breakout prone, but every time I use this, even once, I always start to break out a little a day or two later. I can usually curb it by applying a drying mask, or switching to more drying cleanser, but this always causes little bumps on my forehead where a breakout tries to start. Also, the light, fresh cucumber scent is nice in the tube, but the scent quickly turns on my skin to a sort of stale oil fragrance (other sunscreens do as well) that's not at all pleasant. Yuck! Not unique to this sunscreen, though.
I'll repurchase because it's the first facial sunscreen I've tried that's truly lightweight and non-greasy, and doesn't contain a slew of toxic ingredients.
I cannot get over how obsessed my entire family is with this sunscreen. Expensive but worth it5
This is all I will put on my face, all year round. The smell, the texture, the feeling that I am protecting my face. It is a perfect product for my sensitive eyes and works awesome under makeup.5
I love cooler and all its products! It goes on silky smooth and lasts a long time5
