Coola Dew Good Suncare Illuminating Serum Sunscreen

If there is one skincare lesson, I've learned over time, it's that sun protection is crucial which is why I apply it every day even if I don't have to leave the house. One of my favorite sun protection products is the Coola Full Spectrum 360° Sun Silk Drops which I've raved about and repurchased several times. I was excited when I first read about the Coola Suncare Dew Good Illuminating Serum which is described as a sheer sunscreen designed for long, active days in the sun but is light enough for everyday use. Like the Sun Silk Drops, this product also features the brand's Bluescreen™ Digital De-Stress™ technology which delivers broad-spectrum free radical defense while visibly minimizing the effects of blue light, infrared rays, and pollution. Blue light (aka high energy visible light, or HEV) is the light emitted from the screens of our cell phones, computers, tablets, and TV's, and from fluorescent and LED lighting. The sun also emits blue light, so you’re exposed to it when you’re outside as well. Like the sun, blue light can also cause premature signs of aging so it is a factor that we should look out for.

My Experience
This serum is milky white with a subtle pearlesecent sheen, a thick almost cream-like consistency and a faint sweet scent reminiscent of the beach. It feels silky and lightweight when applied, spreading smoothly and evenly to create an illuminated glow and dewy appearance. It absorbs nicely without any stickiness, layers well over my skincare whether I'm using a face oil or  cream and wears comfortably through the day without any dryness, pilling and best of all it leaves no signs of an unsightly white cast. I can't speak to how well it wears under makeup because I don't wear that anymore but I do wear a face mask whenever I leave my apartment and it doesn't rub off or cause any type of irritation or breakouts. I really like this serum as much for the advanced organic formula that provides full spectrum protection from the sun, blue light and environmental stressor as much as how it makes my skin feel hydrated with a healthy radiant look. I use this every day and it's fabulous. If there were one thing I could change, it would be great if it had no scent but that's something I can live with since it's not artificial. It is cruelty-free which is more important to me. The pretty bottle is nice to use and I would rank this product up there as one of my favorite sunscreens. I definitely recommend it and will be purchasing it again. I have dry skin and even though this serum is hydrating, I still need to use a moisturizer. I could see it working as a combination sunscreen and moisturizer for oily skin types especially during the summer.

Coola Suncare Dew Good Illuminating Serum can be purchased from Nordstrom, Sephora, Ulta Beauty, Amazon and Macy's.

Hey Rowena, how you doing?! I hope you're having a nice month so far!

Thank you so much for your motivation on my recent blog post, it feels so good to be welcomed with this kind of messages :)

Oooh sunscreen.... I mean if I'd only had the chance to spend in a single skincare product that would be sunscreen (and a cleanser probably). But it is crucial when it comes to every routine, no matter where you live or your skin type, sunscreen will be your best ally! I have seen that Allure awards / recommendations are pretty important when it comes to the skincare product of the year so I imagine there is a certain hype around the products they list.

Good to see that you had the chance to try this product, thanks for your honest feedback and for detailing it as much as possible... Now I want to look for Coola products as soon as possible. And I love the fact that it is not only a useful product, but a really pretty one.... that packaging is just perfection *_*

I will love to try this product number one reason is organic.

Ivana Split said...

It is important to protect our skin against the sun and the blue light. I often found sunscreen uncomfortable on the skin, so hearing this product feels silky and light on the skin makes it a really tempting buy.

Mica said...

It's great this is a good product for your skin and that it provides sun protection as well! I struggle to find the right sunscreen for my face, most break me out. This sounds like a good one to try! :)
