Sensitive skin types will love CoTZ’s SENSITIVE, SPF 40.

CoTZ

Birchbox Breakdown

As SPF fiends, we know it’s tough to find a non-greasy sunscreen that feels great even under our makeup. We’re fans of CoTZ’s mineral-rich sunscreen because the silky formula has a sheer matte finish, which means we can even layer foundation or BB cream on top without worrying about excess oil or shine.

How it Works

This dermatologist recommended formula is 100 percent free of chemical sunscreen ingredients, oils, and fragrances. Major bonus? This SPF deflects harmful UVA-UVB rays, so they don’t stand a chance of penetrating your skin.

How to Use

Before you head out for the day, apply a generous amount to your face and neck. Reapply every two hours and 80 minutes after swimming.

Great product, but by the natural tone instead!

After receiving CoTZ Face Natural Skin Tone SPF 40 in my box and loving the protection, the matte non-greasy feel (sort of like velvet), and the fact that even at SPF 40 it did NOT smell like sunscreen, I decided to make the full size my first purchase. I was REALLY EXCITED when I saw that they had a light skin tone version, because I am very pale and the natural scared me (honestly, when blended in well it just looked like bronzer, which was fine for summer but I don't want to look like I am wearing bronzer in the dead of winter). After purchasing and using this product, I would say go with the natural skin tone instead! The light is NOT TINTED AT ALL. The texture and feel on the face are the same, but it washes you out instead of giving a health glow. And this one definitely smelled like sunscreen.

This is a great product and if you sunburn at night like I do, you should definitely use it, but purchase the Natural Skin Tone instead of the Light Skin Tone.

good, but not my favorite.

This is a pleasant and helpful cream. It is great that it has such a high SPF and it is a nice tint. But it is not my favorite. For the price, you can't go wrong, not a bad deal at all. I will probably end up using it after I finish off my favorite stuff. But I don't think I will buy it again.

Not greasy at all!

I really loved that this product didn't leave my face feeling greasy at all. That seems to be really hard to find in face sunscreen, especially with such a high SPF.

Love it

Really enjoy this product. Living at the beach requires something light feeling on the face. This is all I need for coverage and protection.

Feels Great!

I love a tinted sunscreen but hate the shiny finish. CoTZ is perfect because it leaves a matte finish and gives me the sun protection I want. It feels like silk on my skin. I'm adding it to my daily skin care routine!

Pretty good

It goes on a little thick but doesnt feel heavy after its on. It provides good coverage. I like the matte finish and the SPF 40.

Best Tinted SPF

I have very fair, sensitive, oily skin and this tinted SPF is perfect!! If i'm going for a light coverage I usually use Garnier's BB cream, but even that is a little too dark for me and is way too oily for my type of skin, causing me to use lots of powder to set it. This product however is matte, has a lighter shade and is easier to wear in the heat because it is not as oily and i really don't feel the need to use powder! Great Product!!

Like Mud

This product was like putting mud on my face. I did not like it and would not recommended it to anyone. It also flaked off easily.
