This is a really nice sunscreen. It feels a little sticky going on, but within minutes it feels moisturizing and calming, and leaves a pleasant finish. The smell of cucumber isn’t too bad either. I wouldn’t repurchase this, though, as the sunscreen ingredients are unsafe chemical barriers. Why does Coola pride itself on being a natural brand and then put stuff like avobenzone in their products? I prefer to use zinc and titanium so sadly I wouldn’t buy this again.

When I started wearing Coola sunscreens, I bought the rose-tinted, classic variety. But then I realized that the tint didn't really jive with me, too pink, and I looked like an oil slick. So I switched to the mineral sunscreen because the tint was more yellow and the finish is matte. I love it. Even though my skin is dry, I wear this over Cerave PM moisturizer, it doesn't dry me out. I use it every day. The water resistant factor is also great. I run outside and I don't burn, and it doesn't sting in my eyes.You do need to shake the tube, otherwise you'll start with runny, watery goo and end with a tube of dry crust. Then, watch for air bubbles, these can make the lotion splatter. A pump would be nice, but I'm not going to give this up over that issue. And yes, this is an expensive sunblock. But it doesn't make me break out, I have perimenopausal hormones to contend with, and I'm keeping wrinkles at bay. Yay.

This product gave me a painful chemical burns on my face. Based on my bad experience, I would give it zero lipsticks if I could. If you use Retinol DO NOT USE this product. It stung until the next day and the area over the burn now feels like sand paper. I've never had this kind of a reaction to sunscreen, and I'm an AVID user. There were no warnings on the label. Maybe if you don't use Retinol it could be great for you. I admire the "Farm to Face" values this company seems to espouse. That said, the product also felt and smelt like rubbing alcohol and dried out my skin. Proceed with caution!

This moisturizer ROCKS. I got this in a COOLA gift set and wasn’t sure what to expect. Not sure how it functions as an “after sun” product because I wear sunscreen so religiously I never notice any redness or sensitivity from sun exposure. As a straight up moisturizer it is incredibly moisturizing. It has a wonderfully smooth texture and a nice “slip” to it. It is soothing and gentile. And it smells really nice - kinda like limes and fresh cactus. This is a great moisturizer to use after peels and other treatments that can be harsh on the skin.

This is my first mineral sunscreen. I was using La Roche Posay Anthelios Ultra Fluid prior to this which is roughly the same size but less expensive. Its $29CAD compared to Coola which is $48CAD. That is an AMAZING sunscreen but I'm no longer using chemical sunscreens so I didn't repurchase. LRP does have a mineral option but so far I've only been able to find the tinted or "for face & body" options. Until i can find the non tinted for face only I will continue to use the Coola.I do like this sunscreen and its FAR from being a bad product but for me there are a couple cons. I'll give the good first. The biggest PRO is that it's black girl friendly. I have a medium brown complexion and while it does show up white upon initial contract with my skin, it doesn't leave a white cast after rubbing it in. It goes on very nicely, is smooth and absorbs to a matte finish with no greasy feel. However, you can definitely tell there is dimethicone in it. That could be a con if you dont like the feel of dimethicone. For me, it's okay. After three weeks of every day use it hasn't harmed my skin, broke me out or caused any rashes.I love that this is a natural sunscreen with awesome ingredients, is cruelty free and that proceeds from their sales goes to cancer research. Way to go, Coola!All that good being said, my biggest issue with it is that I find despite this going on matte initially with no greasy feel, I am oily within the hour. I'm sure it's the product contributing to this because when I'm at home and don't use it my skin isn't oily as when i do. I'm sure it's the shea butter in the ingredients. As much as i love shea butter it's been known to make me oily in the past. I currently use this with my moisturizer underneath. I will try to use this alone to see if it helps with or cuts down on the oilyness. I hope this isnt indicative of ALL mineral sunscreens. I dont want to be forced to use chemical sunscreens because my skin tolerates them better for oil production :( Eventually I'll try another mineral sunscreen so that I have something to compare it to. For right now using this in the winter is fine. Even though it's cold outside, the sun is still super bright and because I'm working hard to fade some hyperpigmentation on my face with vitamin c and glycolic acid, sunscreen is necessary.2 lippies taken off for the price and the oilyness it causes me.I do worry what this would be like in the summer. I'd probably be an oil slick. Lol. I'll have to wait and see.

Used twice a few weeks apart. Both times it gave me both clogged pores and a bad cystic pimple. The formula feels good and leaves a nice finish, but my skin can't tolerate it.

The only good things I have to say about this product is that it has excellent sun protection for a lip balm (SPF 30) and very functional packaging (metal tube, screws shut). Otherwise, I very much disliked this product. Because it's called a lip balm, I expected this to be at least somewhat moisturizing, but it dries out my lips as soon as I put it on. The consistency is waxy and stiff. I also hate the smell of this. It smells like old-lady lipstick, and it feels like it too. It was also very expensive for a lip balm. I have the "Summer Crush" shade and the tint is subtle (which I like) and looks nice on me, but because of the feel and smell of this product, I will not be repurchasing it.

The perfect product for oily skin! I don’t think I’ve ever been able to find a makeup setting spray that doesn’t make me oily within two-three hours. THIS spray however, does the trick! Giving it an A+ by far. What I LOVE most about this product is that you can get your SPF 30 sunscreen protection easily with no extra steps in your makeup routine. That is huge for me, because I’m all about saving time. This makeup setting spray also includes wholesome ingredients such as: peony leaf, juniper berry, and phoenix leaf stem cells, which is great and not something you can find in any other setting spray product. I personally use this right after I finish all of my face makeup, and it leaves me feeling refreshed and totally keeps my makeup on for an entire workday. I will definitely be purchasing this product in the future, and recommend you give it a try!

I'm often outside and had settled for thick sunscreen as "primer" to control shine and set my sheer-to-medium foundation... until stumbling onto this gem in a sunscreen sample bag. OMG! It felt like putting a cloud on my face and kept my makeup matte, so I immediately purchased the full size without flinching at the $42 price tag. (For comparison, I'm faithful to a $7 drugstore foundation with no SPF.) I have sensitive and oily fair skin and I haven't reacted or burned while using this over the last three months, so it's been worth every penny to me. It also just feels so luxe that I look forward to putting it on.

I got this cheaper at a Marshalls/TJ Maxx for $20, it's about $36 I think. I read a review about someone getting this in their hair and it got hard so instead of spraying it directly on my face, I spray it on my hands, rub them together and then pat it all over my face, usually 2 times to make sure I got my whole face. I occasionally use BB cream and this helps it last all day.I mostly use it as a supplement over regular SPF 50 sunscreen since I've been outside a lot lately walking dogs. Someone asked me how I looked so fresh after we'd been running around with dogs in the Texas heat! That's a pretty high compliment so I will definitely keep using this because it works for me. I double cleanse with Julep Love Your Bare Face and Cerave Hydrating Cleanser. This hasn't broken me out or irritated my skin.

So after literally 10+ years of searching and trying every high-end and low-end sunscreen you can imagine (both chemical and mineral) I have FINALLY FINALLY found my HG sunscreen. I've used it for about 2 months now. It's a completely different formula from anything else I've tried--kind of a smooth, mousse-like texture that floats over the skin and leaves a finish that is both satin-y and matte (you would have to try it to understand). It's a non-irritating broad-spectrum (titanium dioxide 3%, zinc oxide 2%). It leaves zero white cast and is basically invisible, does not cause breakouts, feels like there is nothing on, is easy to remove with a normal cleanser, leaves skin in improved condition after use, and best of all it does NOT settle into lines or pores whatsoever. In fact, it kind of blurs them. It's almost like a primer, but not nearly as greasy/silicone-y as normal primers (I avoid primers because they just feel like an extra layer of gunk). I use a large pea-size drop after my skincare and before my makeup and it makes my makeup look lovely. It doesn't get greasy, it's feather-light and breathable and doesn't clog pores. It's non-drying, and seems to work all day to provide adequate SPF. I haven't tried it as an outdoor, at-the-pool sunscreen, but as a daily under makeup it is PERFECT. And it definitely protects, as I don't freckle/burn at all when I've used it. It was only $14 and if you need a fantastic sunscreen that has zero drawbacks, you will love this one. It does come in a 1.7 oz. squeeze tube you need to shake well before every use (this product can separate somewhat), but what a small inconvenience for a flawless sunscreen! I have just normal skin but I think this would really work great for any skin that isn't super-oily. Really can't recommend highly enough. (P.S.- I found this to be superior in every regard to all the other Coola sunscreens I've tried.)

I bought two tubes of this sunblock for a recent trip to Hawaii. I was looking for eco friendly ingredients, "reef safe" sunscreen that would protect my pale self from sunburn. It is a creamy borderline runny consistency and leaves a faint white sheen on the skin. It did protect me for a few hours. But the one day we were at the beach during high afternoon sun and I did get burned. Not as much as if I wouldn't have had any sunblock on and I did not blister, which usually happens to me when I burn. It is expensive but I like the ingredients. I'm trying to stay away from the avobemzone and other Benzones and the other chemicals that are in mainstream sunscreens. I would purchase again.
