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.

Loved it.
Sampled

I avoid most sunscreen products for the face because it almost always burns my eyes or it's too thick, but this product was nothing like that. My face felt so soft, it was light weight and gave just the right amount of coverage.

My face does not need any more oil ... so the lightweight, nongreasy feel was great! The best part was the SPF.

Not bad...

Not over-pigmented, which is a good thing, as I don't like to wear heavy foundation. It looks like the focus with this is on the SPF. Decent matte finish.

Silky smooth

This product goes on easily and feels so silky smooth on my skin. Plus it has the added benefit of sun protection! Will definitely consider buying a full-sized bottle

This face product felt silky smooth on my skin. It's the first tinted moisturizer I've ever tried and it was very, very nice.

OK...

This product is light, which is a big pro for me. The benifit of the lightness, is nice, but I did not see difference in the way my skin felt or looked after it was applied. I did mix it with my regular moisturizer and seemed to work nicely. I did like the tint as well.

Very nice for my reactive, acne-prone skin
Sampled

I really enjoyed this product and am considering a full-sized. It was easy to apply and blend and did not feel greasy in the slightest. The light tint is nice - doesn't cover much but then again, I don't ever wear makeup at the beach which is where I used this. I wore it on a cloudy day so I can't say whether the SPF stands up to intense sun or not.

Wow

I got a small sample of this in my July box. I am going on vacation soon so I decided this may be something worth trying to see if it would work on vacation. It worked great. The color was nice and shear and the protection was great. It went on smooth and did not irritate my skin at all.

Feels so good!
SampledPurchased

I never have been much of an SPF user unless going to the beach or something, but I loved the way this felt on my skin when I got my sample. I also found that it works perfectly as a primer for blush/bronzer, so I don't have to wear foundation. I really like that.
