Organic Beauty Find - COOLA Mineral Face Matte Finish Suncare SPF 30, Cucumber

Coola MineralFace Matte Finish Suncare, SPF 30 is a mineral-based (and organic!) sunscreen that not only offers a fresh, matte finish to keep you looking polished for the office or events all summer - but also has a texture that doubles as a primer. Oh, and it smells like a refreshing glass of water with cucumber slices in it! This is a perfect product for oily and combination skin which get's even more oily in the summer months. 

I loved it's texture, which at first comes out of the tube like light lotion but when I applied it to my skin, it felt like a light, silky powder. It instantly melted right into my skin and mattified my skin. The scent was just enough - I noticed the cucumber, but it dissipated fairly quickly. This worked well on it's own with some translucent powder on my t-zone, or with a layer of my favorite makeup like BB cream, etc. During the day it kept my makeup looking fresh and significantly reduced my shine, while not drying out my more normal areas, like my cheeks.

Application tip: This has SPF 30, and most likely you'll be layering another cosmetic product BB Cream/Tinted Moisturizer/Foundation that also has some sun protection over it.

For that reason, don't over do it on the amount you apply. Start with a thin layer (about the diameter of a dime). I found a large amount does leave a slightly white cast on the skin (which would be more prominent if you were only wearing the sunscreen). - RLB
