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 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.

Too light, even for my pasty face

I liked this, but didn't love it. I have fair to light skin, and I thought the lighter version of this would be good for me but it doesn't really have any tint to it at all (just a bit of a white cast). The product was very thick and kind of hard to spread. However, it was very mattifying, and would be good for people with oily skin. It works very well as a sunscreen/makeup primer combo, it just wasn't for me.

Pretty good

Odor free (which is awesome), the tint matched perfectly. Somewhat of a matte finish. I will be buying this for summer!

Somewhat satisfied

I really liked how this sunscreen was matte. Although it wasn't too matte to the point where it dried out my skin. It also created a great base for my foundation. The only cons I have for the product is that it was too dark for my light complexion. Although that didn't really matter because once you blended it out it became transparent. I was very unsatisfied about how small the sample size is.

Light skin

I'm not pale but I'm light and I would have to say the tint in the moisturizer is to brown on my skin. On a positive note; the lotion has a nice matte finish; which is hard to find in a sunscreen. The fact that's its spf 40 makes this a healthy product.
