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 CoTZ. Silky-smooth to the touch, the formula blends in quickly and leaves behind a sheer matte finish. It's free of oil, harsh chemicals, and fragrances, and won't upset 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; if you're swimming or sweating a lot, reapply every 80 minutes.

CoTZ
Purchased

I purchased this product after a friend recommended it to me. I work 12-hour shifts and never have time to touch up my make up, plus I hate actually feeling my foundation on my skin. That being said, the CoTZ Face Natural Skin Tone SPF 40 works really well for me. It blends in smoothly (I just use my fingertips) and doesn't feel heavy or greasy at all, nor does it make me break out. The matte finish helps to mask small flaws, and the one-shade-fits-all gives my pale skin a healthy-looking glow without looking unnatural. A little concealer and powder finish off my face, and I feel presentable for my work without taking much time or wearing too much makeup. I really like this as a more affordable alternative to other foundations or tinted moisturizers.

I love how this sunscreen leaves my face so smooth and silky. It feels fabulous on my face. I want to go around and tell everyone to feel how soft my face it.

Just what I needed.

Went to a parade over the weekend and tossed the sample in my bag. Realized that I was going to be out longer than I thought and put some on. Where I did not cover was bright red, everything else was fine. Did exactly what I needed. Will buy it and strongly recommend.

very smooth
SampledPurchased

I really like this sunscreen face lotion for the summer when my skin is oilier. It is very light and provides nice evening of freckles, splotchy skin etc. It is a little too matte for the winter as my skin is a little on the dry side then.

Great product

This goes on nice, without a greasy finish, and works very well. I was outside golfing all day, and my entire face and bald head were not burned.

Great Product!

Goes on light and smooth. It makes your skin feel wonderful. It's not dark at all. So if you're wanting it to replace makeup, be aware that it doesn't hide a lot of flaws.

Not bad

This product works. It's a little weird being tinted and all, but it didn't bother me because I wasn't going out in public when I used it. I didn't notice any difference in my skin tone when I used it either.

Nice tint - even on a rainy day

Wore this recently on a trip to Austin, however...there was no sun to be had. Thought the tint was a nice subtle twist to sun tan lotion.

Perfect
Sampled

This product goes on smooth and has a nice matte finish. Perfect to use under makeup for days of sun exposure. I used it on a trip to the zoo and my makeup was pretty intact after a few hours. It didn't make me break out which is a plus since I am very sensitive to new products.
