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.

this is a great product if you want to layer sunscreen under other production like foundation or BB or CC cream. I have combo skin, so some moisturizers with sunscreen make my face oily. This does not do that. Great value too!

Works Well, Slightly Grainy Texture
Purchased

Works well but has a slightly grainy texture. I wanted to love it, but it is just OK. Those of you who like the matte finish will likely enjoy it and not mind the texture. Odor free.

Great color and finish

I've been nothing but disappointed with tinted moisturizers that I've tried in the past. Either it feels like I'm wearing gunky makeup or the color is way off because I'm as pale as a wintermouse. But somehow the tint of this brand seems to match perfectly, and the finish is light but powdery soft. I love it!

Good product

I received this product as a part of a mystery sample pack. It is a nice addition to my travel bag for on the go BB cream. Nice to have SPF 40 to protect my face.

Yes Please!

I really love this product. I like that it combines my need for a tinted make up base and a sunscreen all into one light and oil free product. I was only disappointed by the size of the sample! I want more!!! I absolutely cant get enough of this product and am ready to buy

Love the texture!
Purchased

This is a great every day suncreen, it has a very silky texture and absorbs immediately without shine (a problem I have with many sunscreens). Light enough to wear over or under makeup, no breakouts either!

I'm totally "Matte" about it!

I love the matte finish! I have naturally oily skin but need the coverage (which is why i like the light tan shade). The product doesn't seem very thick and I don't have to worry about looking shiny. Relatively odorless which is always a plus!

Too white!
Purchased

The sunscreen for "light skin tone" is actually just white, and showed up bright white on my (admittedly very pale) skin. I have previously tried the next-darkest shade and it was too dark, so it appears there is not any shade that is right for me. The white was especially noticeable since zinc oxide sits on the surface of the skin instead of being absorbed like chemical sunscreens do.
As for its effectiveness, I have not gotten a sunburn since switching to this brand.

great for very fair skin
Purchased

I have a family history of melanoma, and with my lily-white, Celtic skin I am maniacal about sun protection. I use this before sun exposure either alone, or in conjunction with a SPF BB cream. The thicker consistency makes it easy to apply, but it leaves your skin matte, not greasy. I have slightly oily skin and larger pores than I'd like, and this sunscreen keeps my oils balanced rather than worsening the problem. After returning from a week-long Caribbean cruise and applying this to my face and neck twice daily, everyone noted that I didn't look like I'd gotten any sun -- good news for me! However, for anyone whose complexion is anything darker than paper white, I'd consider buying the darker shade, because this stuff goes on WHITE!

Love the matte feeling and the SPF

At first sight, I didn't think I could wear this lotion, as it looked way too dark for my fair skin. But I found that it blended so easily that I could work it over my face and neck and not have an orange cast to my skin. My skin does't need heavy color correction, so in summer, this can work alone as a primer/foundation, and keep my face makeup feeling light and not oily. I really like the fact that it's mineral-based, too. The only downside for me was that I did see it gathering in fine lines by midday.
