Coola Sport Continuous Spray Spf 50, Classic Face Sport Spf 50 White Tea Moisturizer & Liplux Spf 30 Review

 

coola liplux spf 30

 

Hello Friyay! Planning on hitting the beach? A long hike? Or just a nice short stroll somewhere? Whatever your plans may be, it’s always good to have a nice handy sunscreen in hand, and I’ve got just the right products for ya. As you all know, I’m a huge fan of Coola suncare products. You can read it my previous post here and here. They’re pretty much the only sun protection I use (sunblocks to BB creams) because I like that they’re really innovative with their sunblock formulations and they seem to put their customer’s preference in mind. Also, they have such well-scented products.

I have three products to recommend in today’s post. These are really useful when you expose yourself to the sun, or even if it’s overcast because it’s always good to protect yourself from the harsh UV rays, no matter what.

 

 

Coola Sport Continuous Spray Spf 50

Coola Sport Continuous Spray Spf 50 in Guava Mango (3.4 oz: $24, 8 oz: 36) – I’ve reviewed the Spf 30 Citrus Mimosa version before, found here. This sunscreen sprays on smoothly and it’s non-sticky. It’s also organic, water-resistant for 80 minutes, has antioxidant properties, and hypoallergenic. This feels pretty much lightweight and it won’t feel tacky even after you sweat. I like going on a hiking trip and this is mostly what I use. I’ve never had any issue with this, no sunburn and no dark spots noticed on my skin. On top of that, I really love the fresh sweet mango and fruit punch scent. Glad to have a sunscreen like this.

 

Coola Classic Face Sport Spf 50 Moisturizer in White Tea review

Coola Classic Face Sport Spf 50 Moisturizer in White Tea (1.7 oz: $32) – This is my first time trying this sunscreen/moisturizer and I couldn’t be happier. I usually use a moisturizer with an added Spf that is a lot lower than this during the day. While that helped, I was always hoping for a moisturizer with Spf that could do more. Well, I’m glad that I found this product from Coola because I love that this has an even higher Spf and it feels really moisturizing on the face while not being greasy. This is a great moisturizer to layer under any foundation, and it gives a natural hint of dewiness. Also a lightweight product, this feels soothing and doesn’t leave a white cast on the face, like most regular sunblocks do. It has a bit of a silky feel and it’s basically organic, antioxidant-infused, great for sensitive skin, and water-resistant for 80 minutes. In addition to that, this also has a great blend of fresh sweet floral scent that’s hard to resist.

 

coola liplux spf 30 review

 

Coola Liplux Spf 30 (0.15 oz: $12) – A lot of us may have forgotten that our lips need to be protected from the sun as well. I, for one, is guilty of that, not just because I simply forgot, but also because I haven’t really found the right sunscreen balm that suits my needs. Well, first, there’s not really a lot of sunscreen balms out there, or even lipsticks with added Spfs, to say the least. Second, the sunscreen balms I’ve used in the past tend to be sticky, kinda heavy on the lips, and has a weird aftertaste. Guess what, this Coola Liplux is not like those. This balm feels light on the lips, it doesn’t make it look too shiny, in fact, it has a sort of matte finish, and it moisturizes and heals dry chapped lips very well. This smells amazing the moment you open the tube, like a fresh burst of yummy berries without any aftertaste. I will definitely be using this a lot as I think I may have found the perfect sunscreen balm, and I truly recommend this product. Plus, this organic balm has broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, hypoallergenic, water-resistant (80 minutes), and with added vitamins and antioxidants.

 

These products are such wonderful twists compared to what most normal sunscreens are. Gone were the days when sunblocks are just obligatory stuff you need to apply. Nowadays, applying any of this Coola suncare feels more like a treat.

Coola Rōsilliance Organic BB Cream Spf 30 Review+Swatches Part 2

Hello Monday and Hello Guys! A couple of months ago I reviewed the Coola Rōsilliance BB Cream in light to medium shade which can be read HERE, also, I did a review of their amazing primer which can be also seen HERE. This time, we’ll be talking about the complete three shades and some additional reviews of the Coola Rōsilliance BB Cream Spf 30 (1.5 oz $52).

 

Coola Rōsilliance Organic BB Cream Spf 30 Review+Swatches

 

As what I’ve mentioned in my previous post, any Coola product is worth a shot and they’ve always been true to their farm to face concept with all-natural ingredients. By farm to face, I mean “organic” ingredients, not that you’re gonna turn into a cow. LOL. Their product’s quality is worth trying for, especially their Primers, Sunscreens and of course the Rōsilliance BB Cream. With summer just around the corner, this is a much-needed product because of its organic and vegan ingredients and is made out of plant stem cells. It also has a good Spf 30 and water resistant for 80 minutes. The scent is soothing and it gives a naturally luminous tint while protecting the face from the harmful rays of the sun.

 

Coola Rōsilliance BB Cream Light Medium

Coola Rōsilliance BB Cream Light/Medium – It gives a very light tint that evens out the skin tone for anyone with fair to light-medium complexions. I love this a lot and it makes my skin glow subtly. Once blended, my skin looks slightly luminous and more balance, almost flawless to the appearance. An in-depth review can be found HERE.

 

Coola Rōsilliance BB Cream Golden shade

Coola Rōsilliance BB Cream Golden – A great addition to the Rōsilliance BB Cream line since this shade adds a perfect golden glow that looks very natural and somewhat buildable. It comes off as slightly orangey on the bottle, but the real shade is like a very subtle tan that just gives enough warmth on the skin. This is so great for the summer especially if you wanna get rid of the snow white flat skin tone.

 

Coola Rōsilliance BB Cream Medium Dark

Coola Rōsilliance BB Cream Medium/Dark – This is a great contouring fluid if you have a light medium to warm medium skin tone, but you have to make sure that you don’t put a lot of it even if this shade has a very natural tint and can be easily blended out, so as to be on the safe side, you know. For dark medium skin tones and above, I’m sure this would be an ideal everyday natural coverage for you.

Bottom line, whichever shade of Coola’s Rōsilliance BB Cream you belong, I’m pretty sure it’ll blend naturally for you. I believe the shades are somewhat multidimensional and adaptable because it’s meant to provide a subtle tint on the face while not totally blocking the skin’s natural color. I love that this is such an all-in-one product, the kind that you’d normally take to the beach and know that you’re well-protected, but not looking washed out from the heat and humidity. I also like that it’s not sticky, it allows my skin to breath and I can do any activity with it no matter how much I sweat. And with its decent size and easy to dispense frosted glass bottle, there’s a reason why this is my ultimate summer vibe.

Coola Dawn Patrol Classic Makeup Primer Spf 30

I discovered a new favorite makeup primer lately. It’s so perfect and just what I’ve always wanted in a makeup primer. Is it lightweight? Check. Has Spf? Check. Does it smell good? Yep. Does it make your makeup last longer? Oh yeah! Vegan? Definitely. Organic? You bet. Is it from Coola? You guessed it right.

Just like Nars and YSL beauty products, there isn’t a Coola product that I didn’t like. I love how there’s an element of care and thoughtfulness in their products. They’re cruelty-free, vegan and organic. You can only hope that most products nowadays should be made like that, but nope. Fortunately, Coola is around and you know that you’re getting a quality product with their sunscreens, primers and BB creams. This Coola Dawn Patrol Classic Makeup Primer Spf 30 is no different. Just like their Rosilliance BB Cream (reviewed HERE), this primer is simply amazing. I’m all about products that protect the skin, so anything with added Spf is a major plus for me, especially when I might have forgotten to apply either a moisturizer or a foundation. With that, a good primer with Spf add-on is a health saver. Unfortunately, that’s kinda hard to come by. Even the most popular brand of makeup primers doesn’t even add any Spf to most of their products.

Coola Dawn Patrol Classic Makeup Primer Spf 30 review

 

What I like a lot about this transparent Dawn Patrol Makeup Primer is the scent. Most primers smell like silicon, but this one smells like Honeysuckle, Iris, and Lily. Slightly grassy too. The scent is never boring and the texture is silky smooth. A lot smoother than Smashbox’s. It feels very lightweight and hydrating at the same time. I love that it blurs my pores and it makes my foundation look even smoother. It may have a very slight silicon feel to it, but it doesn’t pill and it doesn’t irritate the skin. I swear, this is probably the best makeup primer I’ve ever tried. You will never notice the smell of sunscreen in this.

Another thing I enjoyed is that for 1 oz bottle at $42, you’ll get a lot of product in its glass packaging. Love the pump release for mess-free application. This will definitely last a long time and is a good investment if you’re a fan of makeup primers like me. On top of that, this is such a time-saver if you’re prone to skipping steps in your makeup application. Would I say that this is better than the classic Smashbox Photofinish Primer? Hmmm, let’s see… With the nice scent, smooth texture, practical sleek packaging, and added Spf, oh yeah, this is definitely a winner, no doubt.
