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. 

Active Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide 8% (Sunscreen), Zinc Oxide 3.8% (Sunscreen)

CoTZ face SPF 40
Sampled

This product is really light weight and has more of a whipped feeling to it. The tint blends really well. It doesn't look like a foundation.

Smooth

It smooths out my skin and preps it for foundation. The size of the tube is TINY, so was i only able to get about 7 uses out of it. It is not greasy and feels kind of like silicone. Overall, very nice and light weight sunscreen.

Great for Melasma!

I have been looking for a new physical sunblock since they discontinued my usual brand. I like the fact that this sunblock is tinted. I will really like that when I go on my 3 week trip to Florida!

CoTZ Face Natural Skin Tone SPF 40

This is a very light product with just enough tint to give you a little color. Great for summer or for days that you don't feel like going full makeup face.

The Votz face cream feels very light on my skin. The natural skin tone is great. I wish the sample was a little bigger . I might buy it in the future.
