COOLA® Mineral Sunscreen Matte Finish SPF 30 - Cucumber

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.

Had hoped to love it more

I was using the non-matte finish and looooooved it. I got this and while it's pretty solid, I feel like the matte finish highlights pores so, I need to add another base before going out. Not my ideal solution for this grab and go mama!

Love IT!!
Purchased

I tried other SPF facial moisturizers before and they always tend to leave my face looking oily and shiny. I always had to put a good layer of powder on over it to make it less so but this matte finish is what I've been looking for.

I LOVE THIS SUNSCREEN
Purchased

I just came back from a month-long trip to Costa Rica - very strong sun. Right before I left, my best friend mandated I buy organic sun care - so I decided I'd try this one. I was not disappointed. Usually my skin feels weird after applying sunscreen - not the case with Coola. The smell was pleasant and the matte finish makes you feel dry - not oily. Even though this is 30 SPF, I reapplied often and was never burnt in Costa Rica!

Excellent

Got it as a sample, planning to buy. Will use it everyday with or without make up. Matte finish is what really does it for me!! So smooth!

Perfect for daily use

I LOVE this product. I wear it every day under my make-up, and it truly does work as a primer. It leaves no residue, except for a matte, silky finish. I do get a little oilier later in the day, but it's worth it for this product.

great option

I wear face sunscreen every day and this one is up there! I love the matte finish and feels very fresh on my skin. Great option. Thank you BIRCHBOX!

Love love love this! It's the only sunscreen I've ever tried that doesn't make my face oily or break out! Only complaint is that it can leave a bit of a white film, particularly if you use too much, but I find that it sinks in with a bit of time and blending it in.

The best face sunscreen I have ever used! Nice matte finish-not oily at all! Works well under makeup too. I will be buying another tube!

Lightweight and fresh

I generally hate wearing sunscreen because most are too thick and make my face sweat almost instantly. I understand the damage I do to my skin without it. Sun spots take years to surface. Good luck then. This product is lightweight, absorbs quickly, and the cucumber feels fresh on my skin. I use under my tinted moisturizer. Now, I don't leave home without it.

Good, But Not Great
Purchased

I purchased this moisturizer because my normal one has been out of stock for months, and Coola had great reviews - plus I like that it's organic. It has a really great texture, and you don't need to use a ton of product. However the smell is kind of funky - I definitely wouldn't call it cucumber, but once it's rubbed in I can't smell it. Even though I don't have dry skin and I live in a fairly humid climate, I sometimes have to put heavier moisturizer on a few areas on my face because this leaves some dry patches. It also leaves my face looking slightly pasty, but nothing a little bronzer can't fix! Overall I like it, but probably wouldn't buy it again.
