This is not a review, but a shared experience of my struggle. While, technically, Summer has passed and for some people like me, I live in an area where summer heat lasts more than just a few months. I know that the summer and sunny months are not the only times you should use sun protection but that’s the time most people think about it. While we should all nurture our skin year round, when it comes to sun protection, it may get lost in the cooler months.
Yes, I do formulate the majority of my skin care products depending on my needs but I also try many other products on the market to compare and indulge in at times. One thing I do not make myself is sunblock for my face. Yes, I do have more melanin in my skin but that does not mean I am not susceptible to the harsh affects from the sun like skin cancer. Everyone is a target when it comes to the sun.
For the past couple years I’ve been using Coola Dawn Patrol SPF 30. While it worked for a while, my skin began to change, as it does when we age. Dryness settled in and decided to stay long term which made my Dawn Patrol sit on my face and feel heavy and not absorbed at all. My search then continued for a proper SPF for my thirsty skin.
I’m not sure where I came across this new product, it may have been while perusing Sephora online and checking out their new product section. Who knows! But my favorite sunblock brand strikes again. Coola came out with a new SPF for the face. Organic SPF 30 Full Spectrum 360 degree Sun Silk Drops!!! I had to try it after reading the description and amazing reviews. This may be the solution to my aging problem. I ordered it right away.
Silk is the right word to described this formulation. It really does feel like silk and makes your skin feel that way as well. It quickly absorbs and does not sit on top of the skin. Hooray!!! I’ve found another winner by Coola. This is a brand I will be sticking with for my sun protection for a long time.
Now my skin is once again protected from the blistering sun. Please remember to wear sunblock year round for the exposed areas of your body. Your skin will appreciate it and you will revere in the amazing glow of healthy skin.
