Most Helpful Positive Review Let's talk about sunscreen
First off - I received this product to try through Influenster's voxbox program.
Generally the items I receive I'm not too excited about and will barely review because it's not worth my time.
This product though - has so far, lived up to the hype.
1. The packaging is adorable. It comes in this sleek box, the bottle is a beautiful frosted glass with a pump top. I apply two pumps of the product to my fingers and then massage into my skin (after cleansing, vit-c serum, moisturizer).
2. I like to keep my skin products slightly chilled as this helps reduce any puffiness I have in the morning. This feels INCREDIBLE going on my face slightly chilled.
3. I've never seen a sunscreen absorb so fast. It literally SINKS into your skin. No greasy residue, no white cast (however, I am a 31yr caucasian female.), and after I finish drying my hair, my makeup goes on great over it. (**I do NOT use a primer, I don't know how a primer would do on top of this sunscreen - but my foundation blended fine over this sunscreen).
To compare it with something like... SuperGoops sunscreen... that product is almost a silicone type, super slippery. Reminds me of Smashbox's primers. This product is NOTHING like that. I would compare this product to a SUPER light moisturizer.
I live in Seattle, where the sun does NOT shine in february - so as far as SPF protection, I have no idea how it holds up. I do, however, sit in front of a computer for 10hrs a day at work - so anything that can help protect what collagen I have left in my face, will definitely be a repurchase for me.
Most Helpful Critical Review Was not for me
I wanted to love this product but the product left a white cast on my face and went on streaky and it was surprisingly drying to my skin and I have oily skin. I do love the sun drops but now I'm left with the sun silk that I can't use. Totally bummed. Drops for the win.

I gifted this product and it left mine protected and well hydrated. I found the quantity excellent and the price also affordable! Super recommend!
Jessica H. from undisclosed
I'm convinced this product is ideal for the best protection! I know this because it is a thicker zinc layer than the other facial SPF I've used from this brand. I recommend for outside exposure FOR SURE, but not for underneath makeup. Its too thick and doesn't absorb like the other facial SPF (i.e. white tea etc) so it smears around with the foundation and feels cake-y. I will use it for beach and pool days when no make up is needed.
I love it
Kimberly s. from undisclosed
I really like this mineral sunscreen for everyday! I love it because it is not greasy and leaves my skin looking beautiful and natural, it is the best I have ever had! my skin is oily and others leave me as a focus and not this one! I received this product as a gift
Gail K. from undisclosed
I really like this mineral sunscreen for everyday use. It goes on easy and can be worn alone or under makeup. Since it is a mineral sunscreen it does leave a slight white cast which will disappear under makeup.
Favorite Daily Sunscreen
Katie from undisclosed
This is my favorite sunscreen for my face, I wear it every day. It feels great when applying, and doesn't irritate my skin.
My every day routine
Katie Y. from undisclosed
I use this for my every day routine in the morning and I absolutely love it. It absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn't leave any residue. It's great for under every day make up or just by itself. I have skin cancer, and I love and trust this product especially over some fragile areas on my face. If it's a long day out in the sun I'll apply it more throughout the day. I use this in the winter months as well working outside at a ski area and I know that I can trust this product! I highly recommend it!
Not as transparent as I'd like
Emily from undisclosed
Not as transparent as I'd like but still very nice. It goes on smoothly and is works under makeup or on days off/weekends where my skin slightly tinted white doesn't matter. Would buy again if it were little less expensive.
Great but grainy
Susan from undisclosed
I have used for a few months now and I'm half way through the bottle. It is great fragrance free and best of all mineral sunscreen with very minimal white cast. The one concern I have it the grainy texture while applying it, feels like there is bits of sand rubbing on my face while applying.
Kelley from undisclosed
Goes on really well and doesn't leave a greasy feel. Best part is it doesn't cause my skin to break out and has great ingredients!
Not a fan
Stacey from Dallas, Texas
I use the product daily as the last step in my skincare routine. I use a full K Beauty routine and have used sunscreen on and off because I haven't been able to find one that I really like. This product left my skin feeling sticky afterwards long into the day. Didn't like it for that reason and would not buy again.
Would not recommend
TK1996 from Park City, UT
Bought this for an everyday sunscreen under my makeup and sadly will be returning. It really did not rub into my face well at all and left white streaks. I did like that it did not have a sunscreen smell.
Logan from undisclosed
This formula is so silky soft and smooth and works beautifully under makeup or alone. It works really well for my extremely sensitive skin
Carrilee from undisclosed
I love this sunscreen! I received it in an Ipsy bag and loved it so much I looked up the company website. It is the first facial sunscreen that truly feels and looks undetectable on my face. You gained a customer with this product.
Very clean, non-oily product. I

Very clean, non-oily product. I ordered this as an afterthought, and it's one of my favorite products. I use it every single day- and will continue to do so, forever!
I wanted to love it but it just wasn't for me
sam from los angeles, ca
I so so badly wanted to love this and tried it even with reading the bad reviews, just hoping that my skin would react to it well. It's so hard finding mineral sunscreens that don't break me out and that work well and sadly this was not it. I really don't recommend this if you have dry skin at all, it clung so hard to my dry patches and it's almost impossible to blend out even after adding more moisture. It also leaves a SEVERE white cast. it's unavoidable unless you use way less than you're supposed to, and because it's so hard to blend in it's hard to blend the white cast away. I tried it with multiple different moisturizers to see if more moisture helped but I could never blend it enough. maybe if you have oily skin this could be a holy grail for you, but if you have even normal skin I wouldn't recommend it.
Phoebe J. from undisclosed
The cream isn't as silky as is stated, and it looks somewhat white on the face. I'm sure it is good for the skin, but I do not need more whiteness.
Finally a mineral sunscreen for face without a white sheen!
Angie C. from undisclosed
I'm impressed that this mineral sunscreen does actually have a 'silky' texture and it absorbs completely into the skin (no white, chalky residue). Definitely works well to prevent sunburn. I still like the Coola Classic Face sunscreen more, but I'm trying to move towards all mineral-based sunscreens and this is the best option I've tried for face. I find that mineral sunscreens have a somewhat drying effect on my skin, and this one does as well but it's not as noticeable as thicker options.
Only 6 mos until it expires
CLK from MI
Disappointed that this product expires in less than 6 months. Would not have purchased it had I known I'd receive one so close to expiration.
Blocks the sun and no breakouts
E.c from Ny
I love this product! I actually do not like a lot of the mineral sunblocks . But for the face only , this one works . I have combination skin , so I don't have a problem with dryness. But a lot of the other sunblocks , you do break out from those . This one is thin , I usually go foundation free on really hot pool/ beach days , and I did not burn . No smell , I usually reapply after swimming or sweating profusely . I read the other comments , if you have dry skin or non oily you should use something that moistures as well as blocks the sun. This one is defiantly for combo acne prone or just oily skin . I wear it with confidence knowing I'm not going to burn and also not going to get a pimple . But with all sunblocks , wash off with a gentle cleanser and moisturize. But yeah you get pimples or break out use this , sweaty or oily , this will work
Good feeling, but...
Paula E. from undisclosed
I loved the way this felt (glided on so smooth!) and I love other Coola products. I purchased this last year when it came out and used it in several tries but it ended up breaking out my face out in dry patches (my skin usually isn't sensitive). I wanted to like it! Good news is Coola made it right for me and my friend said she ended up liking it. I wish I knew what the issue was because I love the formula and concept. I gave 4 stars for the customer service and the concept since I couldn't really use it!
Not for me
AEHouston from undisclosed
I had high hopes for this face sunscreen, but I was disappointed. There are two major problems- first, its not at all moisturizing, makes my face feel tight and uncomfortable, and second it's leaves an obvious white tint.
Really covers face nicely, it's
Loretta C. from undisclosed
Really covers face nicely, it's not oily.
It left my skin soft & nest of all, it protected me from sun burn.
I would recommend this product!
Sun Silk Creme works well under my sunscreen.

I like this product. It goes smooth & sheer, works well under my sunscreen.
I was rewarded extra COOLA Rewards points for this review.
Megan C. from undisclosed
I like that it's light weight, oil free and protects my skin from the sun and also from the blue light from my computer. It does not clog my pores. Worth the purchase!
Nothing silly about it???
ashleyh430 from undisclosed
This SunSilk Creme was awful! Im wondering if its only getting good reviews because of brand loyalty... I myself have enjoyed other Coola products, but this one just does not hold up. Theres NOTHING silky about it! I found it to be tacky to the point of not being spreadable. It also left a white cast and a shiny finish. Id expect something more matte for the price!
