Get Fall Ready with Coola

 Get Fall Ready with Coola

Beauty Brite Disclosure 

Even though summer is over, protecting my skin from the elements continues. I always start my skincare/makeup routine with a good moisturizer and some SPF, like the new Coola  Mineral Face SPF 30 Rosilliance.  If I’m not using an SPF-based foundation or want additional protection, I can finish my  routine with the Coola Face SPF 30 Makeup Setting Spray.

I’ve been a huge fan of Coola since the first time I sampled their sunscreens through Birchbox. I love that their products are cruelty-free, made from over 70% certified organic ingredients, and don’t contain parabens, petroleum, PABA, or phthalates. I also recently discovered Coola donates to Healthy Child Healthy World and the Melanoma Research Alliance, which makes me love the brand even more.

But enough gushing, let’s get into my thoughts on the Rosilliance and Setting Spray. While I had sampled the Face SPF 30 Makeup Setting Spray before, the Coola  Mineral Face SPF 30 Rosilliance was new to me.

Coola Mineral Face SPF 30 Rosilliance

The first thing I noticed about the product was the sleek, glass bottle. It makes this organic BB+ cream feel very lux. I also appreciate the pump on the bottle. This makes dispensing the right amount of product much easier, which for me is about two pumps.

Unlike most BB creams, the Rosilliance features very light coverage. I would say it’s more of tinted moisturized than a BB cream. In fact, it blends into the skin like a moisturizer does, which is probably due to ingredients like Rose Stem Cells. I really like how light it feels on my skin and how luminous my sensitive, dry skin looks each time I wear it. My skin also feels amazingly hydrated and protected.

The Rosilliance is great for everyday wear if you are looking for light coverage. It’s probably most ideal for no makeup days when you simply want some SPF protection and to even out your skin tone. It comes in two shades, Light-Medium and Medium-Dark. It’s also vegan, cruelty-free, water resistant (80 minutes), made from 70% Certified Organic Ingredients, Plant Stem Cell Protection, and features a very light sweet rose scent.

As I mentioned above, I had sampled the Coola Face SPF 30 Makeup Setting Spray once before and really liked it. (Coola was actually the first brand to come out with a 70%+ certified organic setting spray.) I admit, sometimes I forget to put on sunscreen, especially since most of my foundations already contain SPF. I like having the option of using a setting spray that not only benefits my makeup and skin, but also protects my pale skin from the sun.

The spray is lightweight and delivers a matte finish. It is formulated with Cucumber, Aloe Vera Extract, and Hyaluronic Acid, which I found to really help soothe and hydrate my dry skin. While it does have a strong sunscreen smell, which I kind of like, it doesn’t  linger once it is on your skin. Instead, it’s replaced with a soothing and calming Aloe Vera and Green Tea scent.

Coola Setting Spray in Action

Although I really liked the setting spray, I did have a slight reaction to it, especially when I wore it in combination with the Rosilliance. This is not to say there is anything wrong with either product. This is just something that happens with my extremely sensitive skin. I’m probably one of the few people out there who can have a reaction to very natural products. Occasionally, they will cause a few minor breakouts or a flare-up of my mild Rosacea. As soon as I stopped wearing the two together, my skin was fine. So for me, I probably can’t use this Setting Spray every day, unless I pair it with a foundation free of SPF or don’t apply SPF first.

About Blythe


  1. Feeling hydrated and protected is always good as we head into Winter. So many of us drop the SPF as we get into the cooler months, but it’s important to keep up!

  2. Coola sounds like a great line of beauty products. My daughter will be excited to try them out, for sure.

  3. I haven’t heard of Coola before; I definitely dig that they’re cruelty-free and 70% organic. I am interested in that setting spray and will definitely check it out.

  4. I love their sunscreen! Just started using this summer.

  5. Feeling hydrated and protected is always good as we head into Winter. Some feel that having SFS in winter isn’t necessary but it so is.

    It is so important to keep up the same skin care protection even though summer is over. Coola sounds like a great way to do that!

  7. You really make me want to buy this product! I am TERRIBLE at applying SPF to my skin, AND I have been looking into buying foundation/concealer/powder (for the first time in my life). But I don’t wear a lot of makeup, so I don’t want something heavy. This sounds ideal. Thanks for sharing!

    I love the idea of the setting spray does it make you skin feel oily at all?

    • I’m curious to know that as well. Since I have oily skin, I always look for beauty products that don’t make my skin feel oily.

  9. I live in a high altitude location and winter is so harsh on my skin. Forgetting the SPF is not an option. I love it when it’s in my foundation so I don’t even have to think about it. Often those good for your skin, products don’t always hold up. Wondering, did the setting spray work? Did it increase the length of time your foundation stayed in place?

  10. I always make sure my makeup has an SPF in it, especially for fall and winter because who wears sunscreen during those seasons?! The sun is still shining so we are still at risk!

  11. Kiwi says

    I used Coola once because it came in a Birch box that I got it was sunscreen. I will look into setting spray!

  12. I love that setting spray!! And the BB cream. I am all about good products that are going to be great for your skin as well. I love when SPF is automatically included.

  13. I havent heard of this brand. I would have thought that anything with cucumber and aloe would be great for the skin! So sorry you had a reaction.

  14. amandahrosson says

    Ooh both of these products look great! I got a Coola product in my ipsy bag and really liked it and would love to try these out! Love the packaging and all the natural ingredients!

  15. Dana Vento says

    I love trying new makeup brand and I think this is also gorgeous especially the BB Cream.

  16. I’ve never tried any of these two, I just normally use an eyeliner and some lipstick and that’s it. It’s nice to know what works though, thanks for sharing your experience with these products!

  17. Oh I haven’t heard of this brand before! I will have to check it out. I need a new BB cream since I am getting pale pretty quickly…
