Too Cool: COOLA Cucumber Mineral Face Sunblock

Coola Sunscreen

When you live in the Valley of the Sun, SPF is a daily beauty routine no matter what the season. But summertime pool parties and beach vacations make it even more important to protect your skin. Looking for a natural alternative to other brands? Check out COOLA cucumber mineral face sunblock with SPF 30.

The first thing you need to know about COOLA mineral face sunblock is this: you don’t need a lot of it! When I applied it for the first time, I used way too much and it took forever to rub completely into my face. It also tends to get a little cakey if you apply too much of the sunblock. So, start small and build up more coverage if needed. When the sunblock is applied correctly, it actually leaves your skin feeling and looking smooth, soft and healthy. The light cucumber scent is perfect for summer, too.

What’s really great about COOLA mineral face sunblock is that it’s chemical-free and certified organic. It provides UVA and UVB broad-spectrum protection, plus it’s void of parabens and completely hypoallergenic (that’s good news for us sensitive skin types!). And here’s the major selling point (you ready for this?): COOLA mineral face sunblock doubles as a primer! It’s a matte finish and leaves your skin perfectly prepped for your makeup routine.

When I viewed the list of ingredients, I couldn’t believe that there only two: titanium dioxide and zinc. I’m so used to sunblocks being packed with ingredients that I can’t even pronounce. But don’t assume this simple recipe makes COOLA mineral face sunblock wimpy. This stuff lasts. According to its website, the formal is water resistant for at least 40 minutes.

COOLA mineral face sunblock is ideal for normal and oily skin types. It’s vegan- and recycle-friendly, and cruelty free.
