If you’re spending a day on the beach, make sure to reapply this sunscreen every two hours.

COOLA®

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How it Works

Unlike chemical sunscreens, which can take up to half an hour to kick into effect, mineral sunblocks start working right away. Plus, COOLA uses a proprietary method to maximize the effectiveness of their suncare products. The updated formula features two active ingredients—titanium and zinc dioxide—suspended in a moisturizing base to ensure a smooth, even application. 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

Smooth on a thin coat all over your face. Follow with makeup, or wear alone.

Seems to be a great product
Sampled

This lotion seems to be really nice and I wish the weather would allow me to test it outside in the sun and heat. It seems lightweight but I have yet to sweat or be in the sun to really test it.

Different but good
Sampled

This product is kind of growing on me, I like what it does and how it's not greasy like many sunscreens are, it just feels kinda weird or different to me.

Great stuff!

I got the unscented kind and I absolutely love it. The texture and how it goes on so smooth and not greasy is refreshing its the first sunscreen I've used of its kind. Works well as a primer for makeup. Haven't gotten to wear it on a day out in the sun yet so not sure how it fends off the rays. If not for the price tag I would consider it for daily use. Unfortunately not a staple item I can afford to maintain at that price :(

Works for sensitive skin
Sampled

I have sensitive skin and this did not agitate it, so I was pleased there. Sample size was really tiny, however, so I'm not sure I could leave a true product review.

coola mineral sunscreen
Sampled

This product goes on silky smooth and leaves a slight shine. This gives off a healthy glow. This product is light and doesn't leave your skin feeling sticky or chalky.

Think I like it......

So first the "bad". This sample tube was a nice size and in line with the other samples received. BUT there was only a tiny bit inside and I had to push, squeeze, and twist to get enough out to actually put on. Now the GOOD ~ what I did get on felt very nice. It was thick, but did not feel as greasy as other face creams with sunscreen. I wish the sample was filled a bit more so I could try it one more time before purchasing......

For a face sunscreen it seemed a bit too greasy, not sure you could actually use this as a primer (as suggested).

Advice? Keep looking.

Great smell. Smooth. Works wonders. Haven't purchased the full size yet but Im definitely considering it. The price is right for this. I don't really like using a lot of things on my face but this felt nice.

I used a small dab of this every morning. The matte finish makes this product a great primer. I love the way this product makes my skin look and feel.

Being brand new to bb creams, I had no idea what to expect. I am very fair and worried that it would be too dark for me. It was perfect! I loved the way it went on and it feels great on! Definitely not greasy!!
