This was pretty rubbish to be honest - not moisturing enough and leaves a crazy white cast that won’t blend out. I had a sample from a beauty box and will be glad to use it up and move on. It hasn’t been hugely sunny so I can’t comment on the SPF properties but nothing is better than the Japanese Biore gel for facial SPF.

This feels so dry and mattifying on my mature skin. This goes on like a primer and has a strong yellow tint. After I rubbed it in, my face looked like I was wearing a clay mask. It highlighted every flake but did minimize pores. I have combination skin, NC 20-25 right now through the summer and this is just too dry for me. May be for oily folks. I also could not wear this alone which I was hoping to do since it is billed as a BB cream. I'm so glad I got a sample first. Taking it out of my Sephora cart.

This is by far the best investment that I’ve ever made towards my face! It’s pricey ($36 , I think) but IMO it’s so so worth it. I use a pea size amount and it totally doubles as a pore-filler/primer. It’s silky smooth with no scent. It’s a light yellow, which brightens up my face. It’s kepy my face wrinkle-free for a while now and I’m 37, but young women would love it too as a major preventative measure and it evens out texture. Best SPF BY FAR! The only downside is the price ( but one bottle lasts me 4/5 months) and you have to shake it from time to time because a little liquid will run out. Nothing too bad. And the bottle is cute too.

I wore this for a while and I don’t think it is a bad product but it doesn’t work for me. I like that it disappears on my skin but I am not happy about its ghostly effect. Although it is not supposed to show a white cast, it did on me. If you are pale and you like looking pale, go for it. For me, it is summer and I want to have a little color so this didn’t work.

I got this in the FabFitFun box. I was initially excited to try this as I’ve heard a lot of good things about the coola brand. This was ok. I liked that it was water resistant but I didn’t enjoy the sticky feeling it left you with. The scent was pleasant but I can imagine that some might find it too strong. There was no white cast which is nice. I’m planning to finish this but not repurchase.

I wear sunblock everyday-I mean everyday, even if it is raining. I got a sample of this stuff in a beauty box and loved loved loved it. For me, paying for kids college and putting on makeup in the car during the commute, I just could not justify the cost. My face only tolerates mineral sunblocks.
I had been using Clinique City Block for years, and have been getting increasingly dissatisfied.The SPF wasn’t where I would like it to be, and it was a bit greasy for warm weather.Neutragena and Cerave mineral sunblock did not cut it, even mixed a bit of foundation.
So I found a coupon, a gwp and hit Ulta. Happiness!
The product you ask?
The slight tint works well with my paleish skin. I am only assuming there is silicone in the stuff, the slip is amazing. It has suede like finish.It doesn’t pill for me, but I also do not put foundation over it as this evens out my complexion.
The kids can get a job, I am going to keep buying this.

I love this stuff; it's my holy grail for sunscreen. It goes on beautifully and wears beautifully, and there's no tint (a positive for me). There's a slight white cast, but dissimilar from other non-tinted mineral sunscreen products. It seems to sink in quickly. I'm suffering from a perioral dermatitis breakout right now and also deal with rosacea, and it doesn't aggravate either of those. I like it slightly better than the similar mousse products (tinted and untinted) that Coola makes. My biggest complaint about this is the packaging: WHY? It makes no sense. I'd love to see this in an airless pump and with a higher SPF for summertime. Until then, I'll keep purchasing it and wearing it every day. The price tag is a little steep, in my opinion.

I found this sunscreen while on vacay and really like it. It doesn't feel heavy and smells divine!

This is the first sunscreen that I can actually wear underneath my makeup as a primer that doesn't feel like a sunscreen. The matte formula is perfect and doesn't get oily like other sunscreens that claim to be non-greasy like Neutrogena and Supergoop. I had a sample of this, however, the price is what deters me from purchasing the full size. I have found other similar formulas from Ulta ($10) and Australian Gold ($15) that are near dupes for this sunscreen and have a higher SPF.

For like the hundredth time, I haven't been able to post a review on Sephora.com (despite being a Rouge member), so am grateful that MUA allows honest reviews. Pros: 70% organic ingredients (although many of Coola sunblock products are not environmentally friendly or reef-safe) and great smell.Cons: Wow--this product made my skin break out! I'm in my mid-40s and rarely ever break out, but I had a strong allergic reaction to this product. Maybe the scent? My skin isn't particularly sensitive, so I'm surprised I had this reaction. At $52, this is also an incredibly expensive BB. I usually only use BBs in the summer, so not worth it for me. It's also in a glass bottle (both a pro and a con). I wanted this BB for travel, so glass packaging won't work for me. Returned this and purchased Dr. Jart+ BB. It contains more toxic ingredients, but it's tried and a true.

If I could give this sunscreen zero stars I would. While it claims to have "70% + certified organic ingredients," the other 30% are terrible for you, carcinogenic and bad for the environment: Avobenzone, Octinoxate, Octisalate, and Octocrylene. It's also ranked very low by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a great site for determining how toxic or healthy the cosmetics you put on your skin are. Wish I had known all of this before I ordered it. Plus on top of everything, it's incredibly expensive.

I’m just happy to find something silicone-free that contains SPF, that’s super-easy to reapply during the day. I hate the smell (but it fades quickly), it stings a little at first, and the pump spray isn’t exactly as fine as I would prefer. But despite all of that, I’m extremely pleased with this product. It protects my skin, and doesn’t break me out (a rare combination!).

Needing a new SPF-containing product, and needing to start using a light coverage base, I tried this product as a sample from Sephora. I missed the fact it contained silicones (it was down the ingredient list further than such chemicals typically are). Sure enough, it caused me to break out. On top of that, I couldn’t find a good color match for my light skin tone, and it didn’t blend easily. This was not a winner for me (and I’m not heartbroken about that, as it cost $52, more than I’m happy to spend for such a product).

The Coola Dawn Patrol® SPF 30 Makeup Primer Sunscreen is a nice way to combine two makeup steps in one combining the use of a primer and your daily sunscreen. I like the efficiency of a primer sunscreen because it makes it easier to add a sunscreen into my routine and gives me no excuses to using a daily SPF. This primer sunscreen just wasn't for me though. This is a chemical sunscreen, I tend to prefer mineral/physical sunscreens for a couple of reasons, I have sensitive skin and sometimes the chemical sunscreens can make my skin itchy, specifically on days when I sweat more than normal, and I dislike how some chemical sunscreens smell. Coola has highly fragranced the Dawn Patrol Primer which does cover up the chemical scent but does not dissipate. I could see how if you have more oily skin this primer might work well because it has a silcone texture to it which helps mattify and blur pores. For me I prefer Coola's Daydream (mineral SPF in this primer) Makeup Primer Sunscreen to the Dawn Patrol Makeup Primer Sunscreen. The Daydream Primer is unscented and a mineral/physical sunscreen which is why I prefer it. My video review can be seen here:

The Coola Daydream Mineral SPF 30 Makeup Primer Sunscreen applies like a dream over hydrated skin and does a great job leaving a nice matte canvas for foundation and makeup. This primer does have a slight white cast but once foundation is applied over it this is camouflaged quite well. I love a good two in one product, and this makes using sunscreen just as easy as applying your normal makeup primer and leaves no good excuse for not using sunscreen. This definitely extends the wear time of foundation by at least two or three hours. My other thoughts using this is that it reminds me a lot of the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. The texture and application of it is quite similar. The Coola Daydream Primer isn't cheap, but it is more affordable than the full size Hourglass Veil Primer. Plus, the Coola Daydream Primer is an SPF of 30 while the Hourglass Veil Primer is an SPF of 15. My video review and swatches can be seen here:
