If you’re as fanatical about sun protection as I am, you’ll also be keen to ensure your products are not only protective but a pleasure to use and preferably with beautiful, natural ingredients. For those reasons I have long been a fan of the Coola brand, whose luxurious organic ingredients make applying sunblock a pleasure and less of a chore. Better still, Coola incorporates a Farm to Face® sourcing philosophy too use the freshest and most natural ingredients whenever possible. I was thrilled to try a couple of goodies from their collection – just in time for spring.
A new product to the Coola collection is Rōsilliance SPF 30 BB+ Cream, $95 which is a very light tinted moisturiser to give your skin a natural glow as well as support fresh, healthy looking skin. The mineral formula delivers broad spectrum SPF30 protection but literally feels as though you have bare skin and gives you a super sheer tinted cover. Importantly, it is nourishing to dry skin, doesn’t exacerbate an oily T zone and it doesn’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles. It also includes Rose Stem Cells for an advanced bio-complex to smooth, moisturize and replenish your skin’s natural resilience and improve visible signs of ageing. I was nervous when I saw how dark the shade was (I am a super pale MAC NC20 all year round) but to my surprise I found it blended beautifully and would be a gorgeous option for spring, summer days when I have a light (faux) tan. The gorgeous natural sweet rose scent is an added bonus. It’s not for those looking for coverage for blemishes, but is a truly lovely option for natural days when you just want to whip on some light, yet protective cover. It’s available in two shades: Light/Medium & Medium/Dark. The bottle might seem on the pricy side, but it’s huge (1.5 ounces) and you only need a little, so this beauty will last and last. Once my twin boys arrive and I am super busy running around after them I can imagine this being my go-to on a daily basis because it is so quick and easy to apply and ticks all the boxes for a beautiful tinted moisturiser.
