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.

Light Weight

I liked this because it was light weight and was not a heavy cream that I caked onto my face. It did go well under my foundation that I apply daily. I do wish the tube was a little bit bigger for a sample but I was still pleased with it!

great

Good product on its own but I use it under my foundation and love the end result. I have combination skin and this product is perfect for me.

nice but not for fair skin
Sampled

I'll start by saying this sample was small. I was able to get two applications out of it, but I definitely wasn't using as much as I would imagine you should. With that being said, the texture is great and I love that it doesn't have any kind of smell. The natural color is not for fair skin and gave my skin a bit of an orange tint, but I might consider trying the lighter tint since I like the texture.

it's not amazing, I have super sensitive skin and I do make me break out a little, so I really won't be buying this in the future.

I don't know .... It felt too thick on my face. The color was ok and it blended nicely. I just felt like I had a lot on when I only used a very small amount

l don't use foundation or anything that goes all over my face, but I did try some on my forehead to see how it would look on. It's thick and dark but rubbed onto my skin smoothly and didn't appear to have any color on my olive complexion. It also had NO smell, which is great. I can't speak to how well it works as a sunscreen since right now it's grey out all day and high of 20 degrees.

Non-greasy, very light & pleasant smell. Blends in well on skin & feels like satin going on but no greasy feeling afterwards. SPF is always a plus.
