[Product Spotlight] . . PRODUCT: [user:coola] Mineral Sun Silk Cream - SPF30 . . We all know the importance of applying sunscreen to protect our valuable skin from UVA/UVB but never I thought of wearing sunscreen to protect from "Blue Light" from digital devices...and it totally makes sense. I work in design industry and I spend most of my working hours staring at 2 monitors. . Without further ado...here are my impression of the new SPF from [user:coola] ... . . [My Thoughts] This product contains 70% organic ingredients, which is vegan friendly and cruelty free. I am absolutely in love with [user:coola] brand's philosophy! I feel completely safe for my kids to use as well. . The Mineral Sun Silk Creme is dreamy! It's fragrance free, does not have white cast and can I add this product contains niacinamide (ohhh lovely)! This product applies smooth and absorbs nicely. It applies well under makeup or as alone. . My eye can be slightly sensitive to sunscreen but this product did not bother my eyes at all. Even when my kids applies this sunscreen, they had no negative effect. . I really can't imagine anything having negative experience with this sunscreen (unless they are sensitive to particular ingredient). . Iam very much impressed with this sunscreen. I hope they offer this in bigger bottle. My kids and I have applied this sunscreen every morning for about a week now and we are almost used 1/2 of the product. . . [Disclaimer] Thank you [user:influester] #voxbox and [user:coola] for this opportunity! This product is amazing! . . . #coola #voxbox #influester #sunscreen #coolamineralsunsilkcreme #suncare #skincare
I had very high hopes for this sunscreen based on the five star reviews that were given, but this did not work at all for me. I have sensitive and somewhat oily skin so I thought this would be the perfect sunscreen based on the claims given by the company as well as the reviews left. Even though it says it supposed to be an airy like formula that gently glides on your skin to form a transparent veil it did none of those things for me. The sunscreen left a severe white cast on my face. I looked so pale that I had to go in and put some of my friends BB cream on to even out my skin. I don't wear foundation or any type of face make up so if you use face make up this might work because you can cover it up, but if you don't wear face make up your face is going to look super pale. I also did not like the texture of this, it went on smooth but once it started drying down it became very tacky and sticky. It just felt dry and cakey on my skin while also sticking to some areas on my face and leaving weird white spots on my cheeks. Lastly the sunscreen also made my face feel somewhat itchy and irritated. Overall I'm going to return this as soon as possible because this product was the complete opposite of what I thought it was going to be. It's really strange to me that even though this is supposed to be a sun silk Creme sunscreen that it is very drying and sticky on the face and overall just uncomfortable to wear.

Disappointed with this sunscreen, especially considering its high price.
It is sticky, and does not blend well into the skin. Within seconds of being applied it dries to the point where you can't blend it in. If you attempt to rub it in it becomes patchy and pills.
It also leaves whitecast on my face, which is saying a lot because I am very pale, so I would not reccomend this to anybody with medium to dark skin tones.
Also, you get very little product for the price; I have used this product twice since opening it, only applying it to my face and neck, and I've already used 1/5 of the bottle.

This is a mineral sunscreen. It will leave a faint white cast, rub between your fingers to separate/warm product before applying to your face and its hardly noticable. It is non comedogenic, great for my sensitive acne prone skin. Im fair skin, freckles, dirty blonde hair and the protection is unmatched!!! This is a sunscreen not like a skin care product that you can layer 5 things with. Use this for outdoor days with minimal make up. It does what its supposed to, just a little expensive! Definitely worth the buy.

Wanted to try out a new suncreen for my face. Ive tried other Coola products before and have like them. Boy was this product a dud. This product does not go on smooth at all, it pills and would not spread evenly. It left my skin sticky and dry also and forget about wearing makeup over it. Coola is a great brand with some great products but i cant egg behind this one
Stiff from Michigan Grand Rapids
I will try to keep this short. This product is drying and stiffening, as if you washed your face with a hotel bar of soap. The product almost refuses to blend in your face, and one you use moisturizer to assist wirh blending, the creme then blocks off from any makeup or other moisterizer from properly blending into your face. Thank you sincerely for taking your time to read.

I have NO idea how this got approved for market. This is easily the worst sunscreen I've ever used. it does NOT blend in and ends up pilling and leaving a horrendous white cast. i have tried multiple different application techniques with no improvement.
Libby from Denver, CO
I was super excited about this sunscreen because I saw a lot of reviews saying it was hydrating and didn't leave a white cast. I do not agree, at all. I have normal/dry skin and this only feels like it incrementally hydrates. It also leaves a white cast and streaky white marks on my face. I have a light skin tone. For the price? this is terrible value. I will definitely not buy this again.
Maddi from Grand Forks, ND
I have combination skin. I really liked the sample I got of this so I bought the full size. It ended up not mixing well with my moisturizer (vanicream and cerave). It's sticky and makes my face feel like it's collecting every little air particle. It did not work at all under makeup.
Lili G. from Undisclosed
Love the glass packaging and the overall texture of the creme, but it was very very patchy on me and did not blend in. I will try a different moisturizer underneath it, but I think I will still have the same issue.
Sarah H. from Undisclosed
I have sensitive skin and am acne-prone, but this sunscreen has never caused me to break out. It goes on nice and smooth. My only complaint making me give it 4 stars is that it does leave a faint white residue if you don't massage it onto your face thoroughly. Great protection though!
Pat from Spokane, WA
This sunscreen left a chalky residue that looks like paste on my skin. It will NOT blend. I'm taking it back to the store for a refund.

I was excited to try Coola sunscreen. Unfortunately, when I applied it to my clean face it dried so quickly and was very difficult to even gently spread. This sunscreen also pilled after quickly drying. The company was so kind and refunded my purchase.
Sand from Vancouver, WA
I purchased this Coola Mineral sunscreen at Ulta today (08/16/2022) and opened it right when I got home. When I applied the cream to my cheeks it was extremely hard to spread out evenly on my skin due to the thick, sticky, and tacky consistency. The opaque white cast stayed visable despite extra rubbing. To top off this unpleasant experience, I noticed the expiration date on the bottom of the bottle says 02/2021!

I love knowing that I'm protecting my skin from the damage sitting in front of a computer all day can cause
Libby from NC
No. Just no. I was on the hunt for a mineral sunscreen after my usual was no longer available. I found this and thought it would be decent but I was wrong. Does not absorb at all and balls up on skin no matter what is underneath. Waste of $$$
Tori from Florida
Coola has changed this formula to make it more organic, but it's not even close to the soft finish it was before. I bought two of these and totally regret it. The "crème" is gritty in texture, feels like normal sunscreen, and makeup cakes on top of it. So upset about my purchase and won't buy anymore coola products labeled organic.
Cat O. from Undisclosed
I like the ingredients and packaging, but it felt gritty when applying and left my skin feeling tacky. Might be good to pair with moisturizer if you have dry skin.
Joss from Chicago Il
I use exclusively mineral sunscreen and am willing to live with a white cast but not this. It applied unevenly, leaving a white cast that looked like I was wearing a poorly applied bentonite clay mask, and it pilled. I have oily skin but I wasn't wearing any other product, no toner or serum. I tried rubbing, patting, working quickly, same result. Completely unwearable in public and because of the uneven coverage I didn't risk using it for yard work. Returned it
Jen from Columbus Mississippi
I've been testing with different sunscreens for my acne prone combination skin. This felt thick, left a white cast and left me patchy. Honestly I was more attracted to brand name and philosophy but this product is overly expensive and I don't recommend.

Kim from Philadelphia, PA
This is a bad product. It leaves white all over your face and when you try to rub it in it dries too fast and then dries up on your fingers. I've tried leaving it and not rubbing in all the excess white but it will just leave your face with a white coating. Bad product. Not worth it.
Lori C. from Undisclosed
Texture is gritty.
Tip from Nashville, TN
Consistently light weight, mattifying , and doesn't cause breakouts. Like that it's reef safe and made from natural products.
Rachel from Undisclosed
I just received the product and the consistency is completely wrong. The texture/consistency was extremely grainy (instead of silky smooth like it usually is). I tested the product on my face and body to make sure, and little white grainy speck debris were left all over my skin...could not rub them in. I am very sad since this is normally such an awesome product that I was excited for. I am not sure if one of the ingredients got mixed up or were expired in this batch? Expiration date says 2023 though so not sure... I am mostly writing this review so that the Coola team can check the batch to avoid future complaints. Backstory: I first used this Coola product at a resort in 2019 and fell in love with it. It did not make my skin break out or feel greasy. i was in heaven. This is how I know how the product consistency is meant to be.

I bought this to replace the reformulated matte face lotion, but it does not blend as smoothly. I am very pale and it still gives me a white cast. There are little specs of visible white in the sunblock when you spread it on. It does a good job of preventing a burn. Unfortunately the look and feel are not invisible. Please bring back the old formulas.
