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!
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.

Nice sunscreen. Not greasy. It absorbs well into my skin.

I finally found a great SPF that isnt greasy or stinky, and it doesn't leave a white cast!! It does still smell a little bit like crayons, but its very subtle and fades quickly. A pea-sized drop covers my whole face, and this sunscreen wears perfectly under makeup without pilling.

ever since I turned 30 I started wearing sunscreen daily but it would always make me cry. well not this one! that is why I buy multiples every time it's on sale. another great thing is there's no white overcast. so get it!
I loved this sunscreen for a while but about halfway through the tube I noticed it just sitting in top of my skin and looking oily in addition to causing me to break out. My skin isn't rly oily but it just seemed to not soak into my skin at all

I read a ton of reviews for sunscreens and decided on this one. I loved it at first, it left my skin looking and feeling nice, but I broke out from it. I will be returning it.

I love this sunscreen. It provides a nice moisturizer without being too greasy. Bonus.it is unscented. No breakouts and also I am sensitive with some rosaria. This product makes my skin feel and look better. Love the 50spf.

I've used glow recipe sunscreen, peter thomas roth, and goop. This product is up there without the luxury price tag. I used this on my vacation to Mexico where i too have taken and used the other sunscreens listed and this was by far my favorite. I didnt find the need to double cleanse as I would with other said brands which is good because i have dry sensitive skin. Highly recommend.

i wanted to love this so bad but unfortunately it broke me out terribly. i like that the product is clean and fragrance free, but i think due to it being chemical or having a different irritant, my skin just did not tolerate it. it seems like it would work well for others who are not acne-prone.
jxg from san diego
this spf is great and i think everyone that wants and can wear chemical based sunscreen should try this. theres no gross spf smell or white cast, it does leave a shine at first but it absores really quicky. overall i appreciate this product & probably will always wear it

This sunscreen is very lite and does not sting your eyes when you sweat.
My husband used some on a trip and asked me to get in one for his hygiene kit.

This work's amazing on my dark brown skin leaving NO CAST at all! Not oily or clogging to my pores! Great for the winter & summer !
Lally from az
This sunscreen is perfect for my dry skin i think it's gonna be shiny, oily for oily skin, and no white cast on my medium tan skin.

This does not work as a water resistant sunscreen even though it says it does.
Almy from Texas
I have very dry skin. I like this sunblock because it absorbs into my skin and it's not uncomfortable like the mineral sunblock.
It protects my skin in the Texas heat.
I have very dry skin. This sunblock doesn't feel greasy or uncomfortable. It absorbs into my sling but leaves a dewy glow.
I have tried other sunscreens but I keep going back to this one. I use it when I walk my dog in south Texas heat.

Nathalie from houston tx
I accidentally bought this in-store. I was actually trying to replace the spray and I love and I ended up loving this one too! I have the white tea scent and it is quite pleasing. I also love that this doesn't leave my face white and it doesn't burn my eyes.

This is a CLASSIC. This is the COOLA cream SPF Sunscreen that got me hooked on COOLA many years ago. This Sunscreen is like a veil of silk. It goes well alone, or under your make-up!
Carolina C. from Undisclosed
I like this product because it blends so easy in my skin, I suffer of rosacea and it's the only sunscreen that doesn't blush my face .
Joey S. from Undisclosed
Although slightly pricey, I only use Coola sunscreen. I appreciate the clean and mostly organic ingredients. I like that this face sunscreen is 50 spf and broad spectrum. It goes on smooth and doesn't leave my face feeling greasy and blends well with my other products. I recommend Coola to everyone and it's one of my favorite skincare/beauty brands.
Diana M. from Undisclosed
Great to use every morning before going out! Moisturizing, not at all greasy or oily.
Hannah from Undisclosed
I feel like cheaper sunscreens always make me look oily and get into my eyes when I sweat. I do not have those problems with this product
Sun from Groton Ct
Bought this about 2 months ago and there's still plenty of product. I use it everyday and love that it's very moisturizing. Would definitely recommend
Kelly from Los Angeles, CA
I have combination skin & this does not leave me shiny or greasy in my T Zone. It does not leave a white cast or pill when I apply my makeup, like some brands do. My only complaint is that it doesn't come in a larger size!
Diana from SoFL
Coola sunscreens 1)provide lasting protection 2) feel great on my skin 3)smell amazing, unlike so many other sunscreens 4) are reef safe 5) have incredible staying power 6) not animals tested 7) cruelty free 8) come in a variety of formats. I am a redhead, I live in FL, and I work outside 5-6 hours a day so I am serious about sunscreens. I can't say enough great things about Coola sunscreens.
