COOLA SPF 30 Matte Finish Cucumber for Face

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 used this product and was really excited because of the matte finish. However, I used very little and it turned white and would not even rub in. I tried to let it dry and rub it in more but I eventually had to wash it off. The regular COOLA SPF face is great....this one not so much. And it is way to expensive for the amount and the product.

Too chalky and white
Purchased

I LOVED the description of this product and was so excited to purchase and try it. Unfortunately, part of it's description wasn't true for me. It didn't full absorb into my skin and left an obvious white, chalky layer on my skin. I had to wash it off and use another product. My friends teased me that I looked like a geisha... and they were not far off. I promptly returned it. If you have very fair skin, this might work for you, but I have light skin with yellow undertones and it didn't work for me.

Pore Clogging
Purchased

Left a white film on my face. I broke out after using this for a week on vacation. Seemed to really clog up my pores and caused milia. I haven't had any skin problems in years and this was the only new player in rotation. Not impressed.

Left white tint on face!
Sampled

Perhaps I used too much of the product, but this left a white residue on my face after application. Maybe this product is not for those with darker skin (I am olive/tan). I was able to rub my face for a while to avoid walking out the door with a white tint, but some of the product pooled around my acne -- therefore I was still left with white spots on my face!

I am not impressed with this product. It is extremly dry. It is hard to smooth on your skin. as soon as you squeeze it out of the tube and start to smooth it in, it dries instantly into a hard to rub in powedery substance.

It was too thick/chalky. Did not spread or blend with my skin well and really showed dry patches. It was also VERY VERY VERY white and never blended with my natural skin. It was actually no different than using pure zinc.

Looked like clown makeup
Sampled

I was really excited to try this product, especially since I live in the desert and need to apply facial sunscreen every day. I used a very minimal amount of the sunscreen, and it went on my face completely white - kind of like clown makeup! Also, it was quite drying on my skin - very different than a typical facial sunscreen. Needless to say, I was disappointed.

This made my skin completely white! There are plenty of tinted moisturizers and even plain sunscreens out there that can still allow you to have some pigment in your face while giving you some SPF.

I really wanted to like this product but it's just not for me. I love organic and all natural products but this sunscreen left a chalky white layer on my face. I looked like I was wearing clown make up. Maybe under make up it's fine but I used it alone for a day at the river and my face was 5 shades lighter than usual.

Not for me

I didn't like this product at all. It went on very chalky and it left me looking ghostly (white) even after attempts at blending and waiting for it to set. Maybe it is just not for me.
