Great for body but not for face
Purchased

I love that there is no smell and it's lightweight, but my face broke out a little when I used it. I was looking for an everyday sunscreen and this is more of a "day at the beach" sunscreen. It's sensitive and doesn't make my eyes water when I sweat, but I won't use it on an everyday basis like I was hoping to.

Non-Irritating and nicely moisturizing

I bought this on a whim, and was really pleased with the coverage and that it is moisturizing too. The price is fantastic, and I think I've finally found a moisturizer I can live with!

Nice product

I liked how it was not greasy and very light. It provided me with hours of sun protection and even some coverage for my skin's imperfections.

Works great!

I am so pleasantly surprised by this sunscreen. It's not ridiculously expensive, doesn't smell TOO strongly of sunscreen, and blends into the skin nicely.

I was nervous about ordering this because I read in the reviews that people said it was tinted...I'm not sure if they were reviewing a different CoTZ product, but this sunscreen isn't tinted at all-- just a regular, white sunscreen.
I'm very impressed with it.

great sunscreen

I've tried a lot of sunscreens and this one is good. I just got a sample of Coola and they are both good but different. The CoTZ is much heavier and takes longer to rub in, but I am able to rub it in completely and it doesn't leave a white sheen. It doesn't have much of a scent. The value is terrific! I recommend this product.

Perfect for my odd skin type!

Cotz was reccomended to me by my facial plastic surgeon to apply to a scar on my face. It was worked wonderfully without a greasy residue or irritating my sensitive skin. I look forward to a week in the Carribbean now that I have Cotz!

Really like it!

I have rosacea and a lot of face sunscreens burn my skin. This does not, it feels good going on and protects my face from the sun. It lasts a long time too.

Magic in a tiny bottle

I really like face products that sink into your skin and does not leave residue or sticky feeling after application. This immediately felt silky-fresh. I like the SPF number too. The light tint matches the skin tone and blends well. I'd use this day or night!

CoTZ SPF

I like how smooth it was, but the color did not go onto my face evenly. I would use this product in a non tinted shade.

Definitely will purchase this product

The CoTZ Sensitive SPF 40 is a surprising sunscreen product. It is the silkiest, smoothest sunscreen I have ever tried. It can be compared to a pore primer in its texture. I really liked it and it is my favorite Birch Box "find" to date. I definitely recommend this product.
