Sunscreens should be an important part in anyone’s skincare game, be it any skin type or season. I know a lot of people who are regular with their sunscreen for face, but lazy when it comes to applying it on body parts exposed to the sun (includes me!). Coola Sunscreen Spray Pina Colada SPF30 is exactly what we souls need!
Coola Suncare is a renowned name in the beauty industry for their innovative sunscreen products. They have makeup primers, BB Cream, sunless tanners and even a makeup setting spray loaded with SPF. The brand also has a variety of sunscreen lotions and sprays for face and body in some exciting variants. All this being natural, organic, locally sourced and sustainable!
They call themselves as makers of “healthy sunscreens” with high performance products that are devoid of petroleum, parabens, PABA and phthalates. Their sunscreens contain more than 70% organic, fresh, potent ingredients and are manufactured only in small batches in spite of being such a big brand in the industry!

COOLA SUNSCREEN SPRAY PINA COLADA SPF30
Pina Coladas are one of my favorite drinks – be it virgin or cocktails. And don’t we all associate summers with tropical fruits like pineapple and coconut? How about some share of it in your glass as well as sunscreen too?
Let me admit – I feel lazy too to apply sunscreen on the body sometimes in the morning rush and always wanted convenient sprays. But either those sunscreen/sunblock mists left a white cast on the body or were not good enough at their job.
I always wished for a clear sunscreen spray and until I sprayed Coola Sunscreen Spray Pina Colada SPF30 on my hands, little did I know my long time wish was right there in my hands and such clear sprays has been around for quite a while from this brand.
The product you see in the pictures are lightweight, travel-sized cans perfect to toss in your bag. These cans are TSA approved too, so perfect to carry around in flight.
Its a clear spray that applies and absorbs easily into the skin. Its a runny liquid when sprayed on the body and settles to a matte finish once dried. No greasy feeling left behind and no white casts too!
I like the cool feeling it gives immediately upon application and has a natural, mild fragrance. It smells fruity-floral to me, slightly medicinal too. Not much of pina colada though for some strange reason.
I have not had any skin irritation due to this product. In the US, one needs a sunscreen even when stepping out for dinner in the summers (pun intended!) and I am glad I have never faced tanning issues while using the Coola Sunscreen Spray Pina Colada SPF30 even on the hottest of days. So, yes it works!
Though it has a lot of natural ingredients including cucumber, algae and strawberry that are of anti-aging and antioxidant nature, I find that the sunscreen in itself is not that moisturizing for my dry skin. Hence, I always moisturize before applying this product. I am not sure how it will work on other skin types.
It also has Red Raspberry Seed Oil which is rich in Omega-3 & -6 fatty acids that is a natural sunscreen booster. This explains the slightly oily film that you see when you spray the product on to your skin, which vanishes in minutes and dries matte.
I also love how it delivers a very fine mist but manage to cover a larger part of the body in a single spray, making the sunscreen chore quicker and easier. Spray and rub – you are good to go! It feels nothing on the skin – my most favorite thing about this product!
It is water resistant (upto 40 minutes) as per the brand, but I have never tested this out so far. The brand also claims it does not have any nano particles in it.
