Hi Guys!

COOLA's a really amazing brand that recently launched in Canada! What's really interesting is that their formulas are known to be 70% organic which is an amazing feature to boast. Their products are developed using as many ingredients as possible that are natural, organic, sustainable and locally sourced. Additionally,  each of their products protects and nourish the skin with vitamins and age-defying antioxidants like strawberry, lemon oil, aloe, algae, orange fruit extract etc. It's kind of like sun care + skin care in one!

A lesson I took away from interning at the company over the summer is that it's important to consume healthy products, but also just as important to use healthy products on the skin as well - after all, the skin is our largest organ! 

---> Although the summer is over, it doesn't mean you stop applying sunscreen. If you haven't already read about UVA/UVB rays and what type of damage the sun can do, Read it here and here

**I'm super thankful for COOLA for sending me these products to review! I do not get compensated for reviewing or if you use the discount link. All my thoughts are my own and honest opinions about the product.

They recommend that you apply it to your hand and then apply it to your face - however, that doesn't make sense since its a "setting spray?" A second look on their website revealed a contradictory comment where they say to just spray on face with eyes closed....So I would suggest to just do what you're comfortable with.
  • Price: $51
  • The mist is really nice - doesn't give you water droplets on your face. However, there's a lot of alcohol in the product (No.1 on the ingredients list, however, it' I didn't know alcohol could be organic lol) which you can smell when you spray it. But that allows the product to evaporate very quickly once sprayed and not leave much of a residue. I recommend closing your eyes and tucking your lips in. The alcohol slightly burns my lips if I don't tuck them away and would definitely sting my eyes (this is probably why they said not to directly spray onto face). 
  • It smells a bit weird, not a fan of the "green tea" scent. 
  • It has a gel like texture and doesn't disturb my makeup. Once it evaporates it feels very nice on the face! It leaves a slight hydration feeling and a matte finish which is really nice for touch-ups! 
  • It's a great touch up product throughout the day but doesn't seem to really prolong the wear of my makeup. 
Overall really enjoyed the product aside from the "green tea" scent and alcohol. If you get past those 2 things, I would highly recommend this product! A really great option if you're looking for a way to reapply SPF over your makeup and not having the sunscreen sheen. The size is also super portable and easy to take out if you find yourself out in the sun for a few hours. My only wish is that this was SPF 50 and it prolonged my makeup like a setting spray does. 


  • Really doesn't disturb your makeup underneath - great way to touch up on SPF
  • Moisturizing 
  • Matte finish 
  • SPF 30 UVA/UVB
  • Skincare like ingredients (Algae, Cucumber Fruit Extract, Orange fruit water etc) 
  • Green Tea smell (personal) 
  • Alcohol content

  • When you spray, it leaves a clear sheen onto the body and then gets absorbed pretty quickly. It starts off looking wet but then feels like there's something on my skin but not the usual sunscreen oiliness. It's not super tacky and greasy like normal sunscreen, instead, it leaves my skin feeling a quite moisturized. This feeling goes away progressively until the product is fully absorbed and it doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything at all
  • There's definitely a very distinct alcohol smell,  that is masked with the citrus smell. However, it quickly evaporates and smells like nothing. 
Overall, I surprisingly really enjoyed this body one. It definitely has an interesting finish that is super tolerable compared to other invisible dry finish sunscreens like the Vichy and La Roch Posay sprays. I will for sure use this going out as my boyfriend has much less tolerable to sunscreens... this maybe one of the few ones he's going to be willing to use 8D (you know its good when guys are gonna be okay with it lol ).
