Thanks to Birchbox’s monthly deliveries of natural beauty samples, we’ve tried a lot of organic and environmentally friendly cosmetics. Some have passed the test. Others have not.
The ones that do pass the test get added to our online shopping carts and into our purses immediately.
Coola’s Organic Radical Recovery After-Sun Lotion is one of those products.
Unlike the alien green aloe gels on drug store shelves across America, this lightweight and super moisturizing lotion sinks into skin without feeling sticky. Agave takes the sting out of sunburn and even helps “promote collagen synthesis” meaning it repairs skin and reverses sun damage.
Yes, you are supposed to apply this lotion after a day in the sun.
But we can’t help putting it on after washing our face in the morning and before bed at night (even if we’ve been inside all day). It leaves skin feeling baby soft. Could it possibly reverse 20 + years of damage? Who knows? But our face is getting more caresses because of it. Score.
