The Sunscreen Invention That Changes Everything

Coola Sunscreen Spray - the Sunscreen Invention that Changes Everything | Beauty BetsI get it. Properly layering products is not for the faint of heart—or the time-pressed. Add sunscreen to the mix (after your moisturizer, before your foundation!) and you’ve suddenly got a morning routine that requires a handbook. Don’t EVEN with the primer. Who has time for primer, let alone knows for certain that it’s doing anything?! Not me. But what if there was one product that allowed you to skip all of that layering, protect your skin naturally AND keep your makeup flawless all day? It would sound like an infomercial. Only it’s REAL and no one is paying me to say this! Coola Makeup Setting Spray SPF 30 ($36) is all that and a bag of Chicago mix popcorn. I don’t know what I did without it except suffer. I’ve long been a fan of Coola’s mineral-based line which feels super luxurious and is synthetic-free yet delivers like Coppertone. It’s the sunscreen brand I recommend most so shouldn’t be surprised that their latest invention is a game changer. Instead of applying sunscreen lotion, simply mist your makeup with this spray and go. It not only keeps bronzer from melting off my face, but you can spray it throughout the day without having to start over, or worse—sit on that patio hours after your morning SPF has worn off (guilty). My only wish is that it didn’t smells like alcohol but honestly, not a deal breaker. And, if the Coola people are listening, I’d love to see it in an SPF 50, too.
