COOLA Launches First Non-SPF Skincare Range

COOLA’s Sport range is one of my go-to SPF lines. It goes on sheer, is non-chalky, and most importantly it’s hypoallergenic and doesn’t clog my pores (I’m so pale and fearful of burns that when it’s hot out I’m a machine when it comes to sunscreen application!). The eco-conscious brand’s products are all packed with […]

For obvious sensitive skin-related concerns I’m definitely way more adventurous when it comes to […]

Defying etiquette, I pulled it out at lunch in New York this week, prompting my girlfriend to exclaim, “I haven’t seen that packaging since high […]
