- "i love that this is a sun screen spray! the mist isn’t too heavy and provided great coverage with just a few sprays. it does matte pretty well, and does not make makeup budge." in 125 reviews
SPF. I didn’t burn in summer Florida sun, and only applied extra SPF to my nose throughout the day.
Holds makeup better than any spray I’ve tried. You feel it working - it’s as intense as an extreme hold hairspray, but for your face.
Scent. If you can get past the chemical scent (I’ll get to that soon), the ‘green tea and aloe’ scent is light and very nice.
Chemicals. Whatever is in this is the most intense, heavy product I’ve ever put on my face. It burns to apply if I have even the smallest breakout, and I dare not open my eyes within the first 30 seconds of spraying unless I want to cry my contacts right out. This also causes an INTENSE hairspray-esque aroma.
Bottle. The product gunks around the nozzle (just like hairspray) and not only makes the pump difficult to operate, but the stream inconsistent.
Overall quality, and here’s my biggest issue. I was so impressed by how well the product worked that I overlooked these issues until I was packing for a trip and discovered (pre-flight, pre-suitcase, always stored upright in my bathroom) that the acrylic cap was shattered from the inside and covered in an oily layer. I reached out to Coola, assuming this was a fluke, to ask about the chemicals in the product and get more information. Not only was I not offered any information or a product replacement, but was advised that I had probably been storing my product improperly. Not long after (fool me twice...), I repurchased. Maybe I HAD done something wrong. However, it wasn’t two weeks before this bottle - still standing upright, but now in my bedroom in case my shower had something to do with the damage - did the same thing. In fairness, I have not reached out to Coola regarding this second instance, but I will not repurchase.
If you are confident that you can get past the issues that may come about by using this product, go for it. It truly does the job it’s supposed to do. My experience will not bring me back, as I believe a suncare product at this price point should fall under certain standards, and between my experiences and Coola’s nonchalance, it’s not worth the money and trouble (and a touch of physical pain!).
I used it to set my make up and the spray made my make up look very shiny and felt extremely sticky on my face! Yuk!! The scent too was rather off and pretty “sunscreen-y, it wasn’t pleasant breathing it in.
It could be used as just a facial sunscreen spray only, but they’re many better and less expensive products on the market for that purpose. I do however recommend and use their body spray sunscreen, it’s awesome and some of the scents smell very nice!! COOLA Organic SPF 30 Makeup Setting Sunscreen Spray
This setting spray is FABULOUS and I'm kicking myself, seriously for waiting so long before I got it. I have like 8 setting sprays that I will scarcely touch this summer now that this gem is in my life! COOLA Organic SPF 30 Makeup Setting Sunscreen Spray
Bottom line: COOLA Organic SPF 30 Makeup Setting Sunscreen Spray is a high-quality, long-wearing product.
I have oily sensitive acne prone skin and this did not make me greasy! Yay! I have used this without makeup and it’s fine, I also have used it with makeup and it doesn’t disturb any of the products or leave any dots. You do have to shake it A LOT.
The only problem I have with this product is that it burns my eyes for about 15 seconds after applying and I’m not sure if that has to do with the sun screen or the plant extracts.
I wish it wasn’t so expensive.
