Summer might be winding down but it isn’t over yet. I’m certainly not done enjoying the sunshine. In fact, I’m outside all year which means I always need to protect my skin. I have to admit, I don’t always use sunscreen. My skin gets dark after a few times outside so I often forget. However, the brown spots on my face are a stark reminder that I’m suffering irreversible sun damage and I need to be more diligent about sunscreen.
Besides laziness, when I don’t use sunscreen it’s usually because I don’t like the smell or because my skin reacts to some of the ingredients. I’ve always wanted to find a sunscreen that doesn’t have that strong smell present in most sunscreens. The Coola Guava Mango Sunscreen is one of the first I’ve found that I don’t mind the smell. My skin also has no reaction to it. In fact, my skin actually feels moisturized upon applying. With ingredients like cucumber extract and aloe vera, it hydrates and smooths the skin instead of drying it out.
I like that the sunscreen is water resistant up to 80 minutes. I had no problem with sunburn after spending a few hours at the lake while wearing Coola Sunscreen. With SPF 50, it gives me the sun protection strength I need.
The sunscreen comes in an easy to apply spray bottle. I can reach spots on my body I can’t with lotion.
As far as the cons of Coola Sunscreen, the only thing that might keep me from purchasing it again is the price. It costs more than I usually pay for sunscreen. Though I do like it a lot better than my usual sunscreen, I’m not sure that I would be willing to spend the extra money more than one time a year. After my current bottle is gone, I may feel differently.
I also got a chance to try some other Coola products. The Coola Mineral Sport Tint works well on my face when hiking. I am excited to try it this winter snowshoeing and skiing as my face tends to get burned worse when the sun reflects off the snow. I like the sport tint enough that the price is not an issue. Overall, I’m impressed with the Coola product line.
