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.

Very Light!

I am always looking for a sunscreen tint. I have sensitive skin and protection from the sun is a must! This product was helpful in protecting my skin and covering light skim blemishes.

Perfect for summer
SampledPurchased

This product is an all in one for me during the summer months. It protects my skin with SPF 40, keeps it from getting oily (feels like a primer) and perfects my skin with a slight tint. Perfect for the beach or pool or even the gym when you want a slightly perfected look.

Great sun protection, matte finish
Sampled

Honestly, I wrote this sample off for a few weeks. Tried it on a whim, and it works really well. Easy to apply, matte finish, lightweight, and matches my skin tone. AND, it actually works really well for sun protection. Great for beach days, and I've even worn it before an out odor run.

Very Light Texture
Sampled

The texture of this product is so light. It's great for summer because it doesn't leave your skin feeling oily and it's so lightweight. The shade was a tad light for my skin so I had to use some bronzed and blush to make it look right but overall I really liked the product.

Love this tinted sunscreen. It's a great product for the summer. The color is perfect for my skin tone. Love wearing it instead of foundation.

There is nothing "natural" about this skin tone cream. It was so dark I had to blend it with my other lotion, and even then it was left a line where I stopped using the lotion. Yikes.

Not for me..

The product works well but it has a weird texture. It was also a little on the dark side for my skin.
