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.

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

Oh my goodness I don't know where to begin to explain how much I absolutely love this product. I purchased it almost immediately after receiving my sample. To be honest I don't even use face concealer anymore at all. It matches to your skin tone while also not clogging your pores and leaves and absolutely amazing matte finish.

Good Stuff

If I didn't have something similar that I already love, I'd buy this. It goes on smooth and is great as a primer, it actually feels exactly like a primer (silicone-y). No fragrance that I could detect. For someone who maybe only needs a tinted moisturizer in the Summer, this is great stuff.

I had never heard of this product before receiving it in my box. I have already purchased the full size. I use cotz instead of foundation now and feel confident that I'm protected. I suffer from sun spots, so I was extremely pleased to have a sunscreen that can replace my foundation.

Thanks for the Pimple

review summary says it all.... Huge breakout after using this one time. Not a fan, and pretty mad at the fact that something that seems so great and is worded so well, would do so much damage.

I don't have too many complaints about this product. Seemed to work well. Consistency and color threw me off at first, but overall I liked it.

I LOVE this stuff! Will definitely buy more when my sample run out! It goes on so smooth and dries matte so I don't even have to wear foundation!

Loved It!
Sampled

I didn't realize this was a tinted moisturizer for a while so it just sat there. When I ran out of mine I picked it up and was surprised I hadn't noticed, it felt great on my skin very light not greasy like most sunscreens. Loved the extra coverage too with the tint. Great product. The sample should be bigger though :)

I haven't heard of the brand before, but I really like their products. This product is lightweight and nongreasy. I was impressed.

I received this sample a while ago in my Birchbox and kind of just threw it to the side. I found it the other day and realized it was tinted. I loved it! It added a nice tone to my face while protecting my skin from the sun. I just wish it came in a bigger bottle. I will definitely purchase this bottle for my upcoming Spring/Summer vacations.

I have used this before- not my favorite but it works adequately.
It does seem to keep the sun at bay, but I was not crazy about the feel on my face.
