The Best Organic Suncare

About a week ago, I was so lucky to receive some COOLA Suncare goodies for review!

I’ve been dying to review this brand for ages and after trying them out, it’s no wonder.

COOLA Suncare is the best organic suncare beauty brand I’ve ever tried and that’s saying something. 

First off, they use only eco-friendly, all natural and locally sourced ingredients in their suncare products and each of their different lines has a different function so they all use different active ingredients. I was able to try a Sport SPF30 Spray in Pina Colada scent and an unscented face sunscreen from their Plant UV line which features their special Plant Protection™ in order to help protect your skin from free radical damage and therefore premature aging.

Their Plant UV Face Sunscreen is both SPF30 and unscented making it perfect for those who want a gentle, yet high sun protection factor. One problem I often have with various sunscreens is that they tend to burn my eyes, even the most natural ones, but this is one sunscreen that does not irritate my very sensitive eyes at all! The formula for this sunscreen is something altogether unique in that it is formulated with plant cells of the Buddleja Davidii stems and the Lilac Leaf which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to protect from redness, free radical damage. Other ingredients such as Beet Root and Cordyceps Mushroom Extracts help to protect the skin from premature aging. The formula is preservative free, made with 70% certified organic ingredients, and uses no nano-sized particles. Despite using zinc oxide for it’s spf, there is absolutely no white cast left behind the skin at all. It goes on like any other face lotion, actually, and is very easy to blend out. What I love about this SPF lotion are it’s all natural protective benefits, it’s easily blended consistency and the fact that the sunscreen doesn’t burn my eyes, even if I sweat or get it too close to my eye area. All in all, this is my new favorite sunscreen for face because it offers so many unique skin-protective benefits through a use of all natural and organic ingredients. Couple that with the fact that it’s super easy to apply and blend into skin and the gentleness of the formula and I AM SOLD. I will be unlikely to ever buy another brand of sunscreen again, to be honest.

Cost: $42

The second product I tried from COOLA was this Classic Piña Colada scented SPF 30 Sport Sunscreen Spray. It is basically like any other mist sunscreen you’ve tried, except that it’s better in every way. A broad spectrum SPF spray, this sunscreen is a Farm to Face™ sourced spray using 97% certified organic ingredients such as cucumber, strawberry and red raspberry oil in order to protect, nourish and keep skin hydrated for the ultimate in antioxidant protection from premature aging. The spray is naturally scented and uses no nano-sized particles in it’s zinc oxide formula, is gentle and non-stinging on the eyes or any other part of the body, and goes on in a calming mist when applied. I love the scent of this spray, though it’s not your typical Piña Colada scent at all. The only thing that was a slight drawback of this spray is that upon initial application, there is a hint of that alcohol smell when it’s first sprayed, but once it dries, the smell disappears entirely. I love this sunscreen mist for my body because it’s so fast and easy to apply! Even if I spray it on after shaving, it doesn’t sting or burn my legs which is pretty impressive. I love how pressurized the spray is so you get the finest mist and no product is wasted. Absolutely love this one and I’ll definitely be purchasing both of these sunscreens once I run out of them.

Cost: $32

Size: 6 Oz./ 180 mL

    I love the idea of a pina colada sun screen! I would probably invest in a more expensive sunscreen for my face…
    And for every day use when I don’t need a ton. I don’t think I could afford to use it on days spent at the lake when you need to spray several times a day though 🙁
