If you have a special skin type or condition like rosacea or acne, or recently had a peel or microdermabrasion treatment, try CoTZ SENSITIVE, SPF 40.

CoTZ

Birchbox Breakdown

To (very loosely) paraphrase Clueless’s lead heroine Cher Horowitz, “Trying to find a lightweight, nongreasy sunscreen is like trying to find meaning in a Pauly Shore movie.” In other words, nearly impossible. That is, until we discovered this mineral-rich formula from chic sun protection brand CoTZ. The lightweight formula is silky smooth to the touch, blends in quickly, and leaves behind a sheer matte finish. Perfect for layering under foundation or BB cream, the multitasking formula also protects your skin from those unappealing sun-accelerated fine lines and wrinkles. 

How it Works

Free of harsh chemicals, oils, and fragrances, CoTZ FACE Natural Skin Tone deflects damaging UVA-UVB rays without irritating sensitive skin. Best for medium skin tones, the complexion-matching formula blends in seamlessly and masks minor flaws. 

How to Use

At least 15 minutes before stepping outside, apply a generous amount to your face and neck. Reapply at least every two hours and if you‘re swimming or engaging in vigorous activities (think: sweaty games of intermural kickball) reapply every 80 minutes.

really works!

I really liked this sunscreen. It didn't make me feel greasy and it blended well. I wore it when I was outside all day, underneath my make up.

love it

Feels and looks like a foundation but gives awesome sun protection. I love the matte finish and it helps with my oily shiny face that I have normally when out in the humidity

Great Matte Finish, Exceeded Expectations!
Sampled

I love the finish and the lightweight, non-greasy consistency of this sunscreen. It's like a primer, sunblock and semi-sheer foundation in one. I like it a lot.

Light and Airy

This product is great for the face. It goes on smooth and doesn't leave your face greasy or sticky. I used this under my makeup and my makeup was not effected by this product at all. It doesn't run or melt by the end of the day. If you are looking for a good face proctector I would recommend this product.

Just a typical sunscreen

This product was effective and overall I don't have anything bad to say about it but it seemed like just any other face sunscreen to me. Nothing stood out about it.

Awesome!

I didn't think it was possible to find a sunscreen I could use without making my skin look greasy. This stuff is great! I have fair skin, and sunscreen is a must, so this is perfect for me.
