Most people recognize the value of sunscreen as protection against harmful UV rays, which can cause skin cancer and promote wrinkles, creases, and other undesirable cosmetic conditions. Many, however, don’t like the way sunscreen looks or feels on their skin—especially heavy, greasy, residue-leaving sunscreen, which defines many second-rate versions. Such experiences can turn people off of sunscreen entirely, leaving them vulnerable to sun damage. The Coola line of sun-protection products aims to transform your notion of what a sunscreen can be by using high-quality formulations that nourish and protect your skin without a disagreeable feel or aroma. The Coola Reviews are an excellent way to learn more about the collection.
With the Coola Reviews, we here at SkinStore.com have assembled feedback from your fellow customers who’ve used these products. They offer a resource for you as you research options for good sun-care treatments: the chance to reap the fruit of a little empirical knowledge from your peers.

My first sunscreen
-6/18/2012 5:51:56 PM
I have to be honest and say that this is my first facial sunscreen purchase. I've been treating some darker pigments on my face and new that I should wear a sunscreen. I have very oily skin and this procuct works well. No break outs and semi-matte finish. I do have to add some color back to my skin since it leaves me pale. I ordered the tinted version just to see if the hint of color helps. I have recommended this product to friends.

I purchased Coola Mosturizing Face SPF 30 to replace a moisturizer that I had been using for over 20 years. Coola is a great find. I like it so much better than the product I had been using for so long. I only need to use a couple of drops on my face. It covers well and disappears into my skin quickly. I am very happy with this product.
Great for chemical sunscreen allergies
-5/10/2012 6:43:19 AM
I usually forego daily sunscreen on my face & just try my best to keep my face out of the sun because I have horrible allergies/sensitivities to chemical UVA/UVB sunscreens whether alone or in a daily moisturizer. Most chemical free mineral sunscreens are thick, globby, whitish, & sticky look. I avoid them due to them giving me a wet, oily look on my face that doesn't fade much during the day unless I glob on tons of make up, which I don't want to do. THis is the 1st daily sunscreen for face that I have found that doesn't have any greasy feel or look to it at all. My only complaint is that for my combo skin it sits on the dry spots as a white smear, so I have to add on a sensitive skin moisturizer under the sunscreen. It's an extra step I'd rather not need, but it's worth it because combined the 2 products work wonderfully on my face & I get the sun protection there that I need.
Great Tinted Sunscreen
-4/10/2012 8:45:38 PM
Made of the best ingredients and very effective for everyday wear! The tint is great for my skin type (I am fair) and the color really helps titanium dioxide and zinc oxide better blend with the skin. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it goes on very shiny, nothing I haven't been able to fix with a few swipes of colorless powder but it does require an extra step. I'm also not in love with the pump dispenser and wish they had just made a simple tube: getting out just the right amount is challenging and I've had trouble with air pockets blocking the pump (if this happens, just squeeze the tubing hard until you hear the air bleed out). I'm not completely sold on the rose scent either, I rather wish it were unscented.
All of that aside, its a great product that I will continue to purchase whenever there's a sale (its quite expensive for 1.7 oz). Facial sunscreen is a must in my everyday regiment and this is a great organic alternative!
Unscented and Easy on my Sensitive Skin
-2/24/2012 8:22:29 AM
I have very sensitive skin that typically reacts to high SPF products. This is not greasy, not heavy, and paraben free. Very gentle formula, protects and does not irritate my face. The product absorbs easily when applied, yet is spreadable so that you only need a small amount. It does not get funky in the tube either, maintains its consistency. I really do like this SPF product for my face. I have had many SPF products cause irritation and breakouts on my face, usually they are greasy too. NOT THIS, IT IS REALLY NICE. Applies well, can't even tell it is on!!!
Not good for dry skin!
-8/18/2011 10:48:55 AM
I have a weird combination of very dry and sensitive skin & cystic acne. I use a retin A product to control the acne which means I shed a lot of skin. All to say, between that and having very dry skin already, when I put this product on it gets all caught up in the flakes and sits like a white mask on my face -- even after a good exfoliation with the Clarisonic. I didn't want it to go to waste so even in the middle of summer in order for it to be useable, I put a layer of Atopalm moisturizer on first and then a layer of the Coola.
Coola Mineral Face SPF 30 Matte Cucumber
-8/2/2011 12:33:49 PM
I love Coola Mineral Face SPF 30. It's light and non-greasy making it perfect to wear under makeup. My skin is extremely sensitive and my pores clog very easily. After searching a number of years for an SPF that I could wear under makeup, this is it!
-7/21/2011 8:57:08 PM
I really like this sunblock. It has a nice soft fragrance that isn't harsh to the senses. I used this all over my body (even the face) and it did not clog my pores. It is a sunblock so you will get the whole white effect when exposed to water but that is expected. As natural sun protection, I would definitely recommend this. I will be ordering the Matte Cucumber Face Sunblock soon enough and couldn't be more excited.
great for the beach!
-7/11/2011 6:55:01 AM
This is a simple, no nonsense, lip protector. I love the lipstick like container-product twists up and is a wide neutral colored stick. It goes on smooth and invisible. lipstick goes over it well. It has just a slight citrus scent, nothing obvious. I think it would be great for men and kids also.
Smell turns foul
-6/19/2011 12:26:57 PM
I had a sample of this and LOVED it, couldn't remember where I got it and hunted it down on internet and bought through SkinStore.com I was disappointed when I used it though because the smell I remembered loving, wasn't as pleasant and I noticed later in the day that my arms stunk! It leaves an unpleasant "aftertaste" for lack of a better word. I haven't laid out in the sun yet to test its effectiveness but will use it up and not reorder because of the smell. Plus its expensive and just doesn't have enough going for it for me to want to repurchase it. It does go on very nicely though, better than any other sunscreen I've used. If you can get past the smell then its great.
Additional Coola Reviews Information
Direct and long-term exposure to sunlight can create plenty of havoc for your complexion, beyond the obvious risks of skin cancer. It can cause deep-set wrinkles and creases, for example—enhancing or hastening the symptoms of aging. A sunscreen that leaves a greasy film and smells distasteful, however, isn’t a very appealing treatment. Investigate the possibilities of the Coola collection, which emphasizes natural ingredients and light, non-greasy formulas, through the Coola Reviews.
