Out in the Sun with Coola!!

Summer is not my favorite season, but I still enjoy it. I mean who doesn’t like the outdoors! I love walking, hiking, exploring the great outdoors. Spring and summer are the perfect seasons for that. One of the most important things for me when I am out and about is having good sunscreen protection. I have used many different brands but this year I have stuck with one, Coola. This is such a great brand! I have used their products on and off in the past and they are amazing. Sunscreen is a huge part of my skincare routine and not only during hot weather months but all year round.
I have mentioned before why sunscreen is so important. It prevents premature aging, sun damage to your skin, age spots and the main is that it prevents skin cancer. My younger sister at age 23 had early stages of melanoma and it’s a scary thing. She is ok now, but she takes extra care of her skin now. There is prevention for this and it doesn’t’ take too much of your time to apply some sort of SPF.
So back to the SPF products I have been using this summer. I have been using Coola Mineral Sunscreen Spray SPF 30 & Mineral Body Sunscreen Cream SPF 30. Products Details provided by Brand:

My Thoughts

Mineral Body Sunscreen Spray SPF 30

Packaging wise is great easy to throw in your bag and go. It sprays pretty good and very lightweight. When sprayed on your skin is also lightweight and creamy. You do have to rub it into your skin which I don’t mind at all. After blending it into your skin it absorbs very quickly into your skin. I love that this is fragrance free and it’s not sticky like some sunscreen products. My skin feels moisturized and smooth when using this. I love that it doesn’t leave me with a white cast like some sunscreens do. Works well in protecting the skin from the sun. I also love that it’s free from harsh chemicals and it also claims to be waterproof. Haven’t been to the beach yet so will update you on the waterproof part. I love this product and don’t have any negative things to say about it. It does the job in keeping my skin protected! Totally recommend this.

Mineral Body Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30

The packaging is ok, like the spray bottle you can throw in your purse and be on your way. This is also very creamy and very blendable. It is a bit thicker than the spray so make sure you blend this really well a little goes a long way. I say this because the first time I tried it I didn’t blend it well enough and it gave my skin a white cast. After that I used a smaller amount and made sure I blend it well and worked perfectly. It does not dry out my skin and it leaves it moisturized and protected. I also love that this one is also free from harsh chemicals and waterproof.

These are both great options for a day out in the sun. I liked the Mineral Body Sunscreen Spray better, but they are both good. It really depends on your preference. I love that Coola products are safe to use not only for humans, but for marine life too when used at the beach. You can find these on the Coola website, Sephora or

Please make sure you wear SPF when out in the sun, taking care of your skin and health should be your #1 priority.

Would love to know what your favorite sunscreen product is? Let me know in the comments section down below.

Thanks and hope you’re having a great summer!
