COOLA® Daydream™ Mineral Primer SPF 30

We’re sticklers about wearing sunscreen every day, but makeup and sunscreen don’t always play nice. Fortunately, this primer-sunscreen combo is changing the game with a silky-smooth formula that minimizes pores, reduces redness, and sets the stage for flawless makeup—all while protecting us from the sun. Iris stem cells regulate skin’s natural moisture balance and boost elasticity while antioxidant-rich honeysuckle stem cells fight free radical damage. White lily soothes skin and improves texture so our foundation glides on and stays put (until we decide to take it off). Turns out makeup and SPF can be BFFs after all.

Quality control glitch, again
Sampled

Another disappointing sample. Only a teeny amount in sample. Had to fold in half and half to get squirt of product from stem. Put on face and BURNING is still happening 20 minutes later. Feels like a sunburn and sandpaper. Terrible.

Huge dissappointment
Sampled

Looked at tube in light after having difficulty getting anything out of the tube for the 1ST TIME and realized it was LESS than 1/4 Full!!!! Very unhappy considering this is a paid subscription service. I get better samples at Sephora for free. Hard to give a real review as I have hardly one use in the tube! What little came out seemed smooth but glittery/iridescent. I'd be hesitant to purchase the full size as I think if be worried about if they were cheating me out of product. Sad as I like coola products :(

Hardly one use
Sampled

My sample appeared to barely have anything in it. At first I thought it was a packaging fail but I see other similar reviews. For the barely one use I got out of it I liked the texture and it went on nicely.

Such a skimpy sample!
Sampled

I was looking forward to trying this product as I had heard some very nice things. Regrettably, the amount within the tube was so minimal I didn't have enough for even one use. Bad batch? Or is this a sign that the manufacture is simply skimpy with its sample offering?

Okay primer, TINY sample
Sampled

Well, what I was able to get out of the bottle seemed to work okay (not the best primer, not the worst), but the sample was so tiny it's hard to say! Why not just fill up the sample bottle so we can actually try it out a couple times? I had just barely enough to use once. Boo.

Angry
Sampled

The sample was completely empty. I did not even get to try it. I wanted to try my sample. I am very upset.

Give it a Try

So, my first application of this and I just wasn't impressed. I felt a bit "white" after applying it and in the sun you sparkle a bit. Not a big glitter but more of a shimmer. But after giving it a few more tries and comparing it to the other primer (Dawn Patrol) with sunscreen I was more impressed. Now I use it daily. It's a great primer, really mattifies after using lotion AND serves as a sunscreen. I sometimes wear alone without makeup and other times put makeup over. Both ways is great and really can't beat the SPF. Like others I do experience a bit of separation but a good shake of the bottle before you use it will fix that problem.

Separates badly
SampledPurchased

I tried a sample and loved it. So I purchased the full size version. Totally not worth it. The first 2 weeks, the pump spat out this liquid with almost no product in it. Then the pump stopped working all together. Now to use the remainder of the product, I have to unscrew the lid and scrape some overly thick sunscreen out of the bottle.

Light as a feather!
Sampled

This sunscreen is the lightest lotion I have ever applied to my face! It is incredible. The moment you put it on it is almost melting into your skin. And it leaves absolutely no residue on the hands. Absolutely amazing!
