Love it...It's ok...Moisturizing, gentle, and SPF...I've the world's whitest, driest skin, and I hate the ingredients in 'modern' sunscreen (seriously, do a little research...anything other than titanium dioxide or zinc oxide is so much worse for your skin than being in the sun unprotected is) so this is a godsend.
Which skin type is it good for?

✔ Oily
✔ Combination
✔ Dry
✔ Sensitive

What it is:

A fav...It's ok...Very gentle to my sensitive, acne-prone skin....The only issue I've is that I actually wish it didn't have SPF, because some people might think of this is an actual sunscreen worthy product, then either they are applying a tiny amount and not actually getting sun protection, or they are putting too much on and looking bad (and still probably not wearing enough to get sun protection) because putting too much of this will give you cake face.
What it is:
A five-in-one, long-wear, vegan treatment primer that can be used under (or instead of) foundation for smoother, brighter-looking skin.

What it is formulated to do:
- This state-of-the-art BB cream offers numerous benefits for smooth, youthful-looking skin
- Features SPF 30 sun protection
- Comes in five shades

BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen hydrates skin while helping smooth the look of fine lines and diminishing the appearance of dullness and enlarged pores. It protects your complexion with SPF 30, while also providing lightweight coverage. It’s formulated with a triple-B complex to help brighten, smooth, and soften the look of your skin.

What else you need to know:
Beauty Balms or BB Creams were originally developed as a perfect post-procedure cream used to treat, hydrate, prime, protect, and camouflage the skin. Great for all skin types including those with sensitive skin, these versatile “five-in-one” formulas are designed to do it all: treat with high levels of active skin care ingredients; moisturize and smooth dehydrated skin; prime and perfect skin’s surface; camouflage and color correct the skin tone; and protect skin from the sun with SPF. They can be used as a last step for their skin care benefits or used on their own as an instant beautifier.

This product is powered by triple-B complex, a proprietary blend of natural diamond dust, plants, and lipoamino acids that diffuses light and minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores while improving the appearance of skin luminosity. This product is also vegan.

Research results:
In a consumer panel study:
- 100% of women immediately saw an improvement in the surface texture of skin for smoother makeup application
- 97% of women saw and felt smoother, softer skin
- 91% of women said fine lines appeared minimized
- 94% of women said pores appeared less visible after 4 weeks

Oh joy....Love it...Although this product has some notable ingredients for the skin including its gentle physical sunscreen, clinique failed to deliver in terms of ease in application....It was advertised as a moisturizer, so I picked this product because it had the most SPF protection, but once looking at the Clinique website, it is not listed as one of their moisturizers but used for sun protection.

COOLA understands the importance of incorporating a HEV shield into your daily skin routine—and now you can too. HEV light and infrared (IR) light can lead to premature aging and skin damage from the blue-violet and invisible light emitted from electronic devices such as tablets, computers, and smartphones. They penetrate more deeply into layers of skin than the sun's UV rays, thus accelerating aging. Take the necessary steps to protect your skin from not only UV rays, but also damaging electronic lights.
