I have been a big fan of COOLA's products and brand mission from the getgo. Their 'Farm To Face' philosophy is admirable and something I value when it comes to choosing face products. Because after all, if you wouldn't want it on your table, why would you want it on your face? That being said, I was thrilled when I was selected to join COOLA's VOXBOX campaign in which I received the COOLA Organic SPF 30 Full Spectrum 360Â° Sun Silk Drops . What sets their Sun Silk Drops apart from other SPF face lotions is the fact that their formula protects against typical environmental exposure AND digital exposure. It never really occurred to me that staring at my computer and phone all day was potentially damaging my skin. Boy was I wrong. COOLA shares research that indicates that blue light can reach deeper into our skin than UVA and UVB rays, becoming potentially more harmful than UVA and UVB combined! Yikes! Simply put: digital protection is something I will continue to seek out in my face products from here on out. As far as the actual product goes, the Sun Silk Drops lightweight and quickly absorb into my skin. This is a welcomed change to my SPF regime considering most face sunscreens feel thick and oily. Plus, there is no problem when I applying foundation or other makeup on top of the Sun Silk Drops. My only slight qualm with the Sun Silk Drops was the dropper...I feel like it didn't lend itself to the functionality of the product.
I'll start my saying that I normally don't wear sunscreen unless I am going outside, but my skin reacts differently to the sun than it used to so I wanted to explore my options. At first I was using this on its own (in place of my moisturizer) but my skin broke out pretty badly. I started mixing it with my moisturizer and had reduced facial oil and breakout, even though I know this reduces the SPF. It's better than nothing, right? I have had previous allergic reactions to cosmetics, fragrances, and sunscreens in the past, so I'm carefully monitoring it.

I have tried many brands of SPF over the years. This is very light weight, does not sting your eyes and does not have white cast. It is perfect in every way!!

It caused a bad allergic reaction to my skin, causing it to become itchy, red, and inflammed.

I've been using this for several years now and I use it daily. It prevents burn even in direct sunlight. It's long lasting, lightweight. Goes perfect under makeup. You cannot feel it after it dries, it's a lighter sunscreen smell too that goes away shortly after applying. I've found nothing like it and will continue to use always.

Tried this one time and had a terrible reaction! I don't have sensitive skin, so think it was definitely the product.

I love the consistency and protection, but after application my face always feels hot and burning. I have dry skin so maybe thats why? Thankfully got this as a mini sample. Won't purchase.
Margie from Chicago, IL
Returned immediately. Left my skin looking weird under makeup. Very runny consistency. Disappointed. Really wanted to like it:(
Alex from Ca
I have never felt comfortable without any makeup and this is truly a work of art! I dont know why this isnt a more popular sunscreen! This is just absolutely beautiful on the skin.
Tasha from Tennessee
Love how this has a silky feel when applying to my face.
Colette from West Liberty, KY
I bought this for my granddaughter. It sounds great, ingredients look great. But it doesn't spread well, feel good on the skin or smell good. I told her Mom to return it and get something else with sunscreen. Disappointed

Amazing and lightweight!
good. from Boonton, N J
is lightweight, good moisturizer, your face is going to be a little shiny, but it absorbs decently, and have a very good protection. I use it at home and in the gym.
Sara from San Luis County
I like the way it goes and feels under my makeup. It is towards moisturizing, if you have oily skin than it is not for you. I took off one star because it is bit pricey.
Nina from Undisclosed
I have acne prone skin, so I'm very sensitive to products. This is one of the only sunscreens that has worked for my skin!

I have lived every product from Coola. I was getting blisters on my lips at the beach, now i wear your tinted sunscreen for lips and I love it
julie c. from Undisclosed
It's the perfect sunscreen and blue light protector for my face. Goes on like a serum. It disappears into your skin leaving it moisturized, protected but not super shiny, just a very slight glow. Love it ! Oh and best of all it does not break out my sensitive skin.
Jessica M. from Undisclosed
Absolutely loved this and all the Coola products I purchased. this sunscreen is a serum consistency, which makes it way more comfortable than a thick lotion sunscreen, and allows for better absorption, so you don't sweat or easily wipe it off. Also loved that there was no white cast, or stinging, which always happens on my sensitive skin. Will be purchasing every summer for sure.
Kirsten H. from Undisclosed
I like that I can mix this sunscreen in with my skin cream or foundation. It is very liquidy which makes it easy to do. It has a nice texture and smell. I just wish it were â€œcleanâ€.
Ashley from Georgia
They did not work for me as I was hoping to use them reapplication over makeup but the formula just breaks makeup down no matter how I apply it. In the right amount would be a great sunscreen option but I feel like you could go through quickly.

I absolutely love this sunscreen! Living in Florida, I apply it every morning before my moisturizer to keep my skin safe from UV exposure. It's a great benefit that blue light protection is included as well, as I am constantly on a computer for work. This bottle also goes a long way--you only need to apply a little, so it should last some time!
Olytown from Undisclosed
I love this product. My only complaint is the cost. I like the smooth and light texture. Blue light protection and sunscreen in a lightweight formula is what makes this a favorite for me.
Mar from Chicago, Il
I use this in the morning under my makeup or alone. It is super hydrating and not oily at all. It absorbs completely leaving my skin soft and protected from the sun.

I have super oily skin and hair. and I breakout if I even think of putting sunscreen on. This product was the first one I have ever used consistently (after doing several days worth of test patches) and had no breakouts! I also used it more consistently because I could mix it in my moisturizer (the ordinary) or liquid face make up (bare minerals). I started getting dark spots during my pregnancy 2 years ago and now they pop up quickly with any sun exposure. Thanks to consistent use my dark spots are even less noticeable. Very happy with this product, I just hate the price. I have used it 5-7 days a week for 5 months though, so it definitely lasts.
Boolla from Florida
I was worried how this would look under my makeup but I was surprised that I can't tell a difference. I put it on last after my face serums and eye cream and it applies good. Smells nice and I love the dropper application.
Kels from Florida
I received this as a free sample and ended up throwing the sample in the trash after one use. The fragrance was very overwhelming. It did feel nice on my skin and it was very light but this made me skeptical about how effective the SPF is. I live in Flordia, so I take my daily SPF pretty seriously. I would rather use a more affordable sunscreen without fragrance.
