Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

With summer just around the corner it is extremely important to remember to stock up on sunscreen, and toss out all of those old expired bottles in the back of your cabinet.  Protecting your skin from the harmful UMA/UVB rays while you’re out enjoying the warm weather and sunshine is of paramount important. COOLA offers the first rate sun care products for your body, face and lips with a wide variety of sun protection factors. 

Sun Application Tips to Remember:

Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure.

Reapply:
    • after 40 minutes of swimming or sweating
    • immediately after towel drying
    • at least every 2 hours


Sun Protection Measures. Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. To decrease this risk, regularly use a sunscreen with a broad spectrum SPF of 15 or higher and other sun protection measures including:
    • limit time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
    • wear long-sleeve shirts, pants, hats, and sunglasses
    • children under 6 months: Ask a doctor

5) COOLA Liplux SPF 15 Peppermint Vanilla is an absolutely delectable lip balm. While the Peppermint Vanilla taste and scent does fade quickly, it is exceedingly pleasant. The vanilla serves to temper the peppermint, and while there is a very slight tingle it fades within about a minute. The antioxidant rich formula nourishes the lips, and the moisturizing formula leaves them soft, supple and hydrated. I use it alone, or underneath my lipsticks and lip glosses to keep my lips moisturized and protected from the sun.

  1. I have a lot/hate relationship with sprays. I used one on my grandson and he ended up getting burned on his little cheeks. I think this week I'll spray his body but use a cream on his face, neck and ears. The lip balm with the SPF is very appealing.

    1. Poor baby! I think that sprays are super tricky on the face– especially on kids because there is so much effort directed at not spraying it into their eyes that one can easily end up missing more areas. I think sprays are really easy on the body, but for little ones I think that you are right in using cream on the face, neck and ears. This lip balm is AWESOME!!! The new lip balms from L'Occitane from their Peony line are also fabulous!

  2. Great review!! I am up to my eyeballs in sunscreen, but I need a sunscreen spray for applying at the beach and before running outdoors in the heat and sun. I would love the citrus mimosa scent, but I think I'll go for the SPF 50 instead. I got to try a couple of Coola products via my summer ipsy bags, and I like them a lot

    1. Thanks, Allison! I'm a touch overrun by sunscreen as well, but these are definitely worth trying when you need more. I agree with you, I would get the SPF 50 over the Citrus Mimosa if you are going to be out in the garden or running around in the heat and sun!

  8. I'm still iffy on sprays. I want to love them, but they can be even messier than regular suncreen! I do think the peppermint vanilla one sounds awesome!

    1. They certainly can be, but at least for me I have found that holding them far enough away and spraying evenly and quickly helps. That said, it is a lot easier to miss spots if you you are too hasty! This lip balm of theirs is AWESOME! The flavor alone makes me deliriously happy!
