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.

Sample size was decent, was able to use it a couple of times and provided great coverage and also felt very good.

40 SPF, great find

Given to me from the Men's sample box. I loved it. Went on great, my skin felt smooth and does have a very light tint. I used it under my makeup and it worked well.

Sunscreen

I do not wear sunscreen on my face since I have a full beard and wear hats regularly, no need for sunscreen. Sample size was not enough to put it anywhere else really, I got one forearm covered. Not something I hope to receive again

Too thick
Sampled

This seems like it would be effective, however it is too heavy and thick for my combination skin. It made me break out.

Tiny package is big surprise

I was originally skeptical of the idea of "tinted" sunblock. However, it did an excellent job.

light and very effective
Sampled

I hate to wear BB creams, foundations, etc but LOVE this one! I usually wash off any other creams soon after applying them. This is very lightweight. I can't even tell I'm wearing it, although I love how it evens out my skin tone. I will be buying this soon!!

simple sunscreen

very small sample size makes for a difficult review outside of saying that it goes on smooth and doesn't leave a greasy residue after application
