COOLA Sport SFP 50 Unscented Sunscreen Spray & COOLA Liplux SPF 30
As a committed skin preserver since childhood, I have to share this amazing brand. Last summer, while nursing, I switched to COOLA, a brand that’s committed to protecting skin and preserving the environment. Their new SPF 50 spray offers broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and is part of a new farm to face® initiative. The spray will nourish and hydrate skin with 70 percent+ certified organic ingredients that are locally sourced. Did I mention the spray has anti-aging antioxidants? Yay! And, don’t forget to protect and moisturize your pretty pucker with Liplux SPF 30 broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen, a favorite of actress Megan Fox. $32 (spray), $12 (Liplux),; Available at Sag Harbor Pharmacy, 120 Main Street, Sag Harbor, 631-725-0074
