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 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 (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 (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.
