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.
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.5
I love this sunscreen because it goes on a liquid but has the feel of being dry, soft and powdery. It survived my Texas-heat-induced sweat and prevented me from getting a sunburn. Even still, above and beyond that, it didn't mess up my makeup.5
I loved this product. I used it everyday since I had gotten it in my monthly brichbox. It was silky to the touch and very lightweight, the small tint it had to it was an added bonus because this way I did not have to use multiple products on my face. I am in the process of buying a new bigger tube and I cannot wait to use it again.5
i like this i was great for summer not to thick.. left a my face looking nice and even toned..i did purchase this4
I wasn't anticipating liking this--the tint is great and it feels good on the skin.3
I received this sample in my first Birchbox. I really like it and will be purchasing. I don't use foundation, usually just moisturizer with SPF and loose powder. I use my daily moisturizer and after that sinks in, I put this on and then use the powder. It gives a great matte finish and is excellent with my sensitive skin!5
Most everyday moisturizers only have an spf of 15 or 30, so I love that this is spf 40. The color is great and it's very light weight.4
I liked this facial sunscreen. It went on very smoothly and I personally like that it is tinted. Other reviews said it covered their dark eye circles, but it was not effective in this regard for me.4
To start off with, this is a perfect SPF. It's very effective, its got a great, creamy texture, just all around a good product. However, I was not fond of how this effected the way my skin felt underneath my foundation- it stayed feeling damp and a little oily.
Also, if I purchase this again, I'll definitely be going with the next lighter shade. The natural doesn't look BAD on fair skin, but it's a little troublesome to blend out, and if you miss spots, it's VERY obvious.
I am in the sun quite a bit. I was really excited to have this sample come in my box right before our beach vacation this September. I have used it two days on the beach and absolutely love the texture and consistency. It felt light on my skin------not greasy. I feel like I will not have break outs of my skin when wearing it all day.5
