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)

Oh my word!!! This stuff is awesome. It is so soft when I applying it to my face. It is very light. It is darker when it comes out of the tube but it goes on practically clear.

I like that its lightweight and isn't very oily. I'm very particular about what face products i use because i have oily skin, but this works well and i can apply my make up over it.

I love the idea of this product but it doesn't seem to live up to my (very high) expectations of the product. It was ok, but not necessarily something I would use every day.

as a sunscreen, it worked just fine, but the texture was such that i really couldn't tell how much to put on. i wouldn't buy this again.

I wore this under the Maui sun for over 3 hours, and I did not get burnt at all. The tint adds a bit of coverage, and the scent is wonderful!

Super light

This product is extremely lightweight, and while it is tinted, it is very hard to tell you are wearing anything at all. The sample was very small, and I was a little disappointed by how quickly it seemed to wear off - shouldn't a sunscreen keep you protected for at least 4 hours? Overall, nice lightweight additional protection to my face lotion's SPF 15.

This is such a pleasing sun screen! It is SO light weight it was like I had nothing on my face. Gives a nice even tone and leaves your skin feeling smooth. I have never before had a face sun screen experience like this one!

Love this product! I have very sensitive skin, so I was worried about how it would react with this product. However, there was no problem at all! Great texture and very light on my skin with great sunscreen coverage.

This product is one of my most favorite things I've tried. It fills in pores amazingly and with a slight skin color tint you can wear it on its own or under your usual make up!

This tinted moisturizer rocks! It leaves just a hint of color and the texture is like velvet. It leaves a smooth, matte finish. And best of all is that it has zinc oxide for sunscreen which is what my dermatologist recommends.
