As you guys know, I have been on the hunt for amazing cruelty-free and vegan sunscreen options. COOLA is a brand that I have used before and it was perfect timing when they sent me a package of goodies that included the COOLA Mineral Face Unscented Matte Tint SPF 30. This sunscreen not only has a matte finish, but also works as a BB Cream. It sounded a bit too good to be true, so I’ve been putting it to the test to see how it performs.
Claims: “Give your skin an immediate line-smoothing matte finish and fight signs of aging caused by the sun with this antioxidant-infused Farm to Face® sourced broad spectrum SPF 30 mineral sunscreen. This unscented and lightly tinted formula is made with natural Rose Hip Oil which is rich in free radical fighting Vitamin C. Naturally calming Evening Primrose and Flax Seed Oils deliver abundant Omega-3 and Gamma-Linolenic Acid to improve elasticity and help skin retain moisture. Natural Shea Butter smoothes and hydrates while the phyto-protector Plankton Extract rejuvenates skin. Formulated for all skin types and tones, including those that are especially sensitive or oily.“
Active Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide (Sunscreen) 3.2%, Zinc Oxide (Sunscreen) 1.8%
Inactive Ingredients: Aluminum Hydroxide, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Glycerin, Hydrogen Dimethicone, Iron Oxides, Isopropyl Myristate, Isopropyl Titianium Triisostearate, Linum Usitatissimum (Linseed) Seed Oil, Mica, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Plankton Extract, Polyamide-5, Polysilicone-11, Propylene Carbonate, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Silica Silylate, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Synthetic Wax
Pros: Pigmented to give sun protection and some coverage. Blends in well. Does not leave a white cast on skin. Cruelty-free brand. Vegan formula.
Cons: The shade of this BB Cream is very light, so you may want to try out the COOLA Face Resilliance BB+ Cream in Medium/Dark SPF 30 if you have medium, tan, or dark skin tones.
The Verdict: The COOLA Mineral Face Unscented Matte Tint SPF 30 worked great. I have used it on casual days where I am not outside much and on days at the lake. In both cases, it really protected my skin from the sun.It works well underneath makeup, which is rare for a lot of sunscreens. It’s also great on its own. I like that it’s tinted because that helps even out my skin and give it a little brightness. The matte formula is especially nice on days when you’re outside and in the sun for long periods of time. It’s really easy to apply and doesn’t settle into pores or create a white cast like lots of sunscreens can.
Overall, I think that this is a great option for a face sunscreen. It works well and I love that it has the added BB Cream benefits!
