Most Helpful Positive Review My go to daily moisturizer, year round!
Discovered Coola a year ago and have been using the White Tea (my fave fragrance option) moisturizer every day, year round! It provides the perfect base for under my makeup or just worn alone on those hot summer days where one can't bear to wear anything other than a moisturizer! LOVE the fragrance of the White Tea option. The SPF 50 is perfect and I haven't experienced any sunburns on my face since using this product, therefore it must be working! I also apply it around my neck and down my decollete for extra sun protection. I have purchased this many times over and have found I cannot be without it. It's also caused me to explore other products that Coola offers. Can't say enough about this line!
Most Helpful Critical Review Doesn't seem to fully absorb
The consistency of this sunblock is kind of thin; not exactly watery because it holds a blobular shape when you squeeze it out on your hand, but when you rub it in it feels very lightweight and thin in consistency. And this is what made it so surprising that it seems not to absorb very quickly. After half an hour, my face still felt kind of tacky; not exactly greasy, but just as if the sunblock was still sitting on the surface of my skin and not fully absorbed. It doesn't look shiny, but about 10-15 minutes after applying I usually end up putting a light powder over it so that I can apply powder blush with a smooth application.
The scent is light and pretty neutral. It stings my nose a tiny bit in the first 30s or so of application but then quickly dissipates enough that it doesn't bother me. I like that it's broad spectrum SPF 50 (that's what I was particularly looking for, for the summer). I will be trying a few other brands though, because that slightly sticky feeling bothers me and I hope I can find something that works better with my skin.

I'm not normally one for sunscreen but I'd received a sample of this product and fell in love! I ordered enough for my entire household & stocked my boat with different SPFs for friends to use.
It's moisturizing, smells great, coral friendly, & it works great. My hubby is fair skinned & this stuff protects him so well the dermatologist commented that his new sun-care routine was working!

I was looking for a sunscreen that didn't leave me feeling oily, and that didn't flake off after application. This right here doesn't do any of that! It gives you a super nice glow afterward too!!!

I have never had a more severe reaction to anything topical. Literally had to run back to my room and get in the shower and spent two hours in bed with a wet washcloth on my face. I was in agony and my eyes were nearly swollen shut. If you have sensitive skin, please don't use this!
Do not touch your face after applying
Skinobses from USA
Sunscreen smells and feels great on skin but starts to clump up with the slightest touch. I switched to using the body one on my face as well and works WAYY better. No issues. Smells great. Feels great. Doesn't look great.
Hannah H. from undisclosed
Best sunscreen that I've found. Other sunscreens seem to sweat off and end up getting in my eyes. I've had no issues with coola. It's easy to actually put sunscreen on everyday it's like nothing is on my skin
For some reason the spray
Jeanette E. from undisclosed
For some reason the spray bottle is hard to use...it is not easy to get the spray to work...maybe mine is defective. I also was looking for a matt finish for face sun screen and it is not labeled on the bottle so I ordered the wrong one. My fault -
My Number 1 Pick!
Eryck from New Orleans
This product is literally my holy grail. I don't use any other brand besides this one and it has yet to let me down! If you're looking for skin friendly, reef friendly, never failing sunscreen it is right here!
Great protection and doesn't run

I cannot say enough about
Anna H. from undisclosed
I cannot say enough about this sunscreen! I wear sunscreen daily but mostly just tolerate it and I have tried dozens over the years. I have never found one that doesn't feel heavy, clog my pores, leave a white cast etc. until now. I am always hesitant to try new sunscreens but this stuff is amazing. My skin actually improved after wearing it daily for a few weeks and it feels more like skincare than sunscreen. It absorbs easily, is moisturizing and wears well all day. Never thought I'd have a HG sunscreen but I love this stuff. Well done Coola!
Meghan M. from undisclosed
I love all of my Coola products! There's no white cast and it feels very hydrating. Protect those beautiful faces!
So far I like this but it smells soooo bad
cass from New Jersey
I like that this is thin in consistency, so its easy to distribute. I have normal skin, it gets dry in the winter time but i just bought this and its may. The smell is AWFUL. I have never had a skincare item smell this bad. I hold my breath lol I have noticed its a bit greasy but i havent been wearing much makeup so im ok with it for now.
Really like it
Really like it from Ohio
I've tried a handful of different sunscreens and this is my favorite so far. No white cast or reaction/breakout to or from it. I have oily skin already, so I don't notice any significant increase from this product. There is a slight smell, it's tolerable and it's not the classic SPF smell. I plan on using the rest of the bottle and most likely will repurchase!
Sandy from West Michigan
I love this fragrance free facial sunscreen. I use it all year. It never stings or causes breakouts.
Greasy but no white cast
B.H. from Southern California
I have very dry skin but this product is a little too shiny after application. It also can pull easily if your moisturizer isn't completely dry before hand. Other than that it's a solid sunscreen that doesn't leave a white cast
drys skin out
coola from st louis missouri
I loved this sunscreen at first, it leaves no white cast and to me smells like any other sunscreen, just less intense. But early on I noticed that by mid day my skin is dry. like flaky, pulling, just even touching it, I noticed dry flakes coming off my face. my skin is already dry so it def doesn't help. I'll be looking for a new one again.
Our favorite spray lotion.
Charles N. from undisclosed
My family lives on this stuff. Easy application, has a great feel on the skin (not oily), and it works. I highly recommend it.
Best sunscreen ever. Has protected

Best sunscreen ever. Has protected me in Africa and Hawaii where I had been exposed to Sun and wind. Feels great and does the job.
Makes me shiny and oily
Paulina from undisclosed
I had high hopes for this and tried to make it work for the last few years but this spf makes my already oily and shiny skin worse! It's bad enough right after application but really the problem starts 3-4hrs later when my oil production is crazy, my whole face is sticky and greasy. Good spf - never burnt my skin when applied correctly but not the right look for me.
no white cast!
Jennifer from Jacksonville FL
I purchased this in the cucumber scent at a discount store because I have seen such mixed reviews on here. I am happy to say that I've found my new face sunscreen!
First, my skin is super dry and I have acne scarring. I have to be careful that whatever I use on my face is moisturizing but also doesn't settle into my lines and scars.
This sunscreen left no white cast, I tried it both alone and under foundation/bb cream. The smell was nice but light which I prefer in stuff going on my face.
I will definitely repurchase this and pay full price now.
Irena S. from undisclosed
I love how smooth is this lotion. No white streaks on my face :)
Best sunscreen. I refuse to
Joyce B. from undisclosed
Best sunscreen. I refuse to use anything else for me and my whole family.
It's okay. Kinda greasy.
Allison from Wisconsin
I've been using this one an off for a few months now and I definitely don't love it and won't buy again. It says non greasy but for my skin it does leave it greasy no matter the amount I use and I think it's caused a few breakouts as well. Overall, I think I can find a better sunscreen for my skin. My skin type is normal during spring/fall, slightly dry during winter and my t zone is occasionally oily but mostly normal during summer.
So glad I found this!
Justina P. from undisclosed
I have been looking for a sunscreen that doesn't feel heavy on my face and has an unscented fragrance that actually smells pleasant, and this is it! I love it, and I tell everyone I know how much I love it! I wear it every single day. I also wear the Classic Body Organic lotion with SPF 50, unscented, and love it for the same reasons. I am so glad that more retailers are selling Coola products. Thank you for all of your high quality skin care products.
