Definitely will purchase this product

The CoTZ Sensitive SPF 40 is a surprising sunscreen product. It is the silkiest, smoothest sunscreen I have ever tried. It can be compared to a pore primer in its texture. I really liked it and it is my favorite Birch Box "find" to date. I definitely recommend this product.

Smooth, colorless, and safe for your skin!

This sunscreen has an interesting texture - kind of like a primer or pore filler. It has a brown color but does not leave any visible color on my face - it blends in seamlessly and smooths out skin kind of like a primer!

It also scored low on EWG which in general is a good thing - it's not filled with harmful chemicals or additives.

I also like that it doesn't leave your face kind of bluish or greasy like how other sunscreens can. This is really light!

Perfect for sensitive dry dry skin

Stays on very well and does not allow any sunburn. I have also used on neck and chest area for great cover

100% Mineral Sunscreen

This is my daily go-to sunscreen that I'm currently in love with. I've never in the past had sensitive skin however since recently beginning Retin-A treatments, I've come to understand what "sensitive" skin was all about. Prior to this, I'd been using another brand that used both mineral & chemical (octinoxate) sunscreens & had been fine with it for months but after 3 weeks on Retin-A, suddenly my face began burning & stinging every time I applied it. I happened to be running out & it was out of stock so I decided to give the Cotz a try. WOW!! What a difference - NO MORE burning & stinging. Went to a beach party for hours, applied the Cotz twice & had absolutely NO sunburn. Great stuff. Feels awesome applying it. Not overly greasy & really doesn't irritate my skin. The other stuff I had before made the top layer my of skin so irritated it would dry & flake off by the next morning. I didn't know what was causing it. Now I do!! Thank you Cotz -no more morning after flakes!! SO HAPPY!!
