The smell of sunscreen always reminds me of endless days at the beach soaking in the sunshine and enjoying the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. My love for the beach spans from the times my mom and dad would pack our toys, snacks, and beach towels in the car, ready for a day out in the sun. The first thing we would do after settling our things down on the sand was get the sunscreen out. It was always the same routine, we never missed that step. Later on in life, my mom taught me the importance of applying sunscreen every single morning, even if going to the beach wasn't in my plans for the day. I learned that applying sunscreen daily would prevent any pesky UV rays to penetrate my skin, hence protecting it from the dangers of skin cancer and premature aging. It also prevents future development of sun spots, also known as dark spots or brown spots on the face. Long story short, wearing sunscreen daily is very important if you want your skin to age gracefully.
These past few years I've tried countless of sunscreens that did their job but weren't quite exactly what I was looking for or wanted in a sunscreen. I never felt like I had found "the one". They were either greasy, felt heavy on my skin, were too strong scented, or made me break out. However, I'm happy to say that I have found a suncare line that I've been LOVING these past few weeks. Like, you guys, this suncare line is THE ONE. Today, I'm sharing a mini review on three of my new favorite Coola Suncare products that I'm currently loving and will be using all summer long.
I can go on and on about this particular item. It's SO GOOD! This makeup setting spray that contains SPF 30 is definitely a favorite! I love makeup setting sprays because they lock in your makeup for the day ahead. Since I have a bit of oily skin, I like to lock in my foundation by applying a light layer of powder over the top of it and using a makeup setting spray after finishing my makeup takes the powdery look away. This one does smell like sunscreen, one of my favorite scents, but it dries beautifully and the scent doesn't linger around. The only small qualm I have about this item is in the packaging, the spray isn't as fine as I'd like it to be but it's still a great product! Perfect if you forgot to put your sunscreen on after you skincare routine in the morning. This also makes it easy to reapply your sunscreen throughout the day if you're going to be outdoors all day. It's 70% organic, contains hyaluronic acid which means it helps soften, tone, and rehydrate your skin, and it has a matte weightless finish. I told you it was good!
I'm loving this particular lip product for three reasons. One, it contains SPF 30, which is major! Protecting your lips from harmful UV rays tends to get forgotten but it's just as important. Lips need SPF protection too. Two, the formula is pretty amazing. It's 70%+ organic and contains shea butter, coconut oil, & mongongo oil which makes this lippie super creamy, leaving your lips feeling soft and smooth. Lastly, it's lightly tinted, which means that it adds that extra little something to your everyday makeup look. They have other pretty colors available that I'm definitely getting my hands on for summertime! (I'll link those down below)
I've never met a sunscreen quite like this one. Like I said earlier, every sunscreen that I've tried has left me feeling greasy and like I was wearing a mask. What intrigued me about this particular sunscreen was the fact that on the bottom it says "Mineral BB Cream". The packaging itself also states that it's unscented and has a matte tint. I like applying this particular sunscreen right after I'm done with my skincare routine in the morning, right before I apply my makeup for the day and if I'm not wearing makeup for the day, I LOVE this sunscreen because it truly does act as a BB Cream. It has a weightless finish and it's slightly tinted which makes my pores look smaller and offers a bit of coverage for those glorious no-makeup days.
I'm loving these suncare products from Coola so much that I wanted to share them with you just in case you're in the market for new sunscreen this upcoming summer. All of them are green, meaning they're natural and organic. They're also filled with vitamins and antioxidants that are great for your skin. Getting into the habit of applying sunscreen everyday is something we should all be doing and these products make it so easy to do so. Do you apply sunscreen on your face everyday? Which sunscreen is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below.
As always, thank you so much for taking a moment of your day to stop by. See you back here next week for a fresh, new blogpost. Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead!
