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.
HATED THIS. never again. not of me, and not my type of item to use. I hope i don't get something in my box like this again......
I used this product today, having received it in a Birchbox. I applied and reapplied during my time out in the sun. I did not apply very well, dry and not creamy, but that was okay. What was not okay, is that my face is burnt to a crisp.
I tend to sweat a lot around my forehead and nose and this stuff made it terribly worse I felt like an oil slick.
My face and neck broke out in a rash after using this!
It was smooth and creamy, but wasnt crazy about the color. maybe its good for a beach day. I wouldnt buy it it was oily for my skin type.
When I first put this on my face, I liked the matte finish. However, then I put my BB cream on top of this product, it made my face feel like I had makeup on. My BB cream stayed on top of it and you could see the places where I applied both products. I rather use my BB cream, so this product didn't work for me.
While this product does blend, it does not blend to the color of your skin. When I wore this I was noticeable MUCH lighter. It wasn't a cute look. It looked like I didn't know how to do my makeup. Even with makeup over it, it still looked pretty terrible. This isn't for anyone with tan skin or darker.
So I think this is just a sunscreen for your face but I'm not quite sure why it would be necessary if I already use a product with spf in it. Overall it does not seem to have any extra benefit for me at least
I agree with other reviewers who liked this product very much - it applies nicely, color matches naturally, and settles into a very comfortable matte finish. But my super-sensitive skin ended up breaking out where I applied it :( Unfortunate, but I guess this stuff just isn't right for my skin.
I was really excited about this product. It went on really smooth and creamy. The color was good. The drawback was the powdery residue it left behind.
