CoTZ® Face Light Skin Tone SPF 40

As SPF fiends, we know it’s tough to find a non-greasy sunscreen that feels great even under our makeup. We’re fans of CoTZ’s mineral-rich sunscreen because the silky formula has a sheer matte finish, which means we can even layer foundation or BB cream on top without worrying about excess oil or shine.

Great product, but by the natural tone instead!
Purchased

After receiving CoTZ Face Natural Skin Tone SPF 40 in my box and loving the protection, the matte non-greasy feel (sort of like velvet), and the fact that even at SPF 40 it did NOT smell like sunscreen, I decided to make the full size my first purchase. I was REALLY EXCITED when I saw that they had a light skin tone version, because I am very pale and the natural scared me (honestly, when blended in well it just looked like bronzer, which was fine for summer but I don't want to look like I am wearing bronzer in the dead of winter). After purchasing and using this product, I would say go with the natural skin tone instead! The light is NOT TINTED AT ALL. The texture and feel on the face are the same, but it washes you out instead of giving a health glow. And this one definitely smelled like sunscreen.

This is a great product and if you sunburn at night like I do, you should definitely use it, but purchase the Natural Skin Tone instead of the Light Skin Tone.

Not the tan lines that you want to get

I applied it to my face before heading out to the beach and was confident that I was safe from the sun this time... It seems like once that first wave hit my face and I wiped the water from my eyes, I wiped all of the sunscreen off too. I am diligent about reapplying, and I was this time too, but there was a definite line (burn) around where the facial sunscreen was supposed to be and the other sunscreen I had applied began. I was very disappointed as I really liked the way it felt on my skin, and the coverage was nice looking.

Took it off right after I applied it

I did not care for this product at all. It was greasy and seemed really thick on my face. I put out in and then immediately removed it because it felt uncomfortable. I have very sensitive skin so perhaps that's why it didn't work for me.

Great for protection and as primer

Bought this to use as just a sunscreen. Was pleasantly surprised when it provided enough coverage to act as a primer. Great buy!

Fabulous!

This spf moisturizer makes my skin so incredibly silky soft! I have annoying combination skin so I am dry and oily all at the same time and this moisturizer takes care of both problems!

Not great
Purchased

This spf is really thick. It doesn't really soak in or rub in, and it has a strange finish- not sticky or greasy, but basically it just feels like it sits on top of your face. It's pastey white, so it makes your face look like a ghost if you don't put foundation over it. I wish I hadn't bought it.

great non greasy sunscreen
Purchased

I usually hate wearing sunscreen because of the smell and how greasy my face feels. I'm also prone to breakouts but I want to protect my skin. I love this sunscreen! It is the only one I will ever use. No smell and its not greasy AT ALL. The only reason i gave it 4 and not 5 stars is that it takes forever to rub in all the way.

Too light, even for my pasty face
Purchased

I liked this, but didn't love it. I have fair to light skin, and I thought the lighter version of this would be good for me but it doesn't really have any tint to it at all (just a bit of a white cast). The product was very thick and kind of hard to spread. However, it was very mattifying, and would be good for people with oily skin. It works very well as a sunscreen/makeup primer combo, it just wasn't for me.

Pretty good

Odor free (which is awesome), the tint matched perfectly. Somewhat of a matte finish. I will be buying this for summer!

Somewhat satisfied

I really liked how this sunscreen was matte. Although it wasn't too matte to the point where it dried out my skin. It also created a great base for my foundation. The only cons I have for the product is that it was too dark for my light complexion. Although that didn't really matter because once you blended it out it became transparent. I was very unsatisfied about how small the sample size is.
