It's extremely important to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays, but not all sunscreen is right for the face. Many sunscreens on the market actually clog your pores and make your skin very oily and greasy. I've never been a fan of applying sunscreen onto my face which is why I am so thankful to have Coola's SPF 30 Mineral Face Matte Cucumber in my life!
The Coola SPF 30 Mineral Face Matte Cucumber* (CAD $48) claims to be lightweight and silky, loaded with antioxidants, and provides a matte base perfect for normal to oily skin. The formula is free of skin-irritating chemicals, will not clog pores, and is made with great ingredients for the skin like rose hip oil and shea butter.
This sunscreen is formulated without gluten or oxybenzone and is vegan, TSA-friendly, cruelty-free, and water resistant for up to 40 minutes. It is also marked with a Clean at Sephora seal which means that its made with cleaner and purer ingredients.
The Coola SPF 30 Mineral Face Matte Cucumber is housed in a matte bright blue squeezy tube that's super convenient for controlling how much product you wish to dispense. I absolutely love the vibrant and fun packaging with the use of different fonts - it really embodies the definition of summer!
There is 1.7 fl oz (50 mL) of product in one tube.
True to its claims, the Coola SPF 30 Mineral Face Matte Cucumber keeps the face matte for majority of the day. I wore this for 12 hours in the sun, and even with reapplication, I was way more matte than those days where I didn't apply this sunscreen. It's super lightweight and has a very silky texture that actually helps smooth out the skin - best of all, it's not greasy or oily whatsoever!
This product sits extremely well under makeup and is actually an amazing skin-smoothing and mattifying primer. It doesn't chunk up like some other pore-filling primers do nor does it start feeling heavy or cakey later on in the day.
I highly HIGHLY recommend this sunscreen to every human being on Earth! No matter what the weather is like outside, it's imperative to apply sunscreen before you head out to protect your skin from the Sun's harmful rays. Even on a cloudy or snowy day, the Sun still rises in the morning and is present in your everyday life.
