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

Really like the texture. The tint makes it easy to see where you've applied it, but it blends in easily. Lightweight and not greasy.

Goes on great

This product goes on super smooth and definitely protects from the sun; I wore it outside all day and didn't have any after-affects from the sun. I would definitely recommend this product!

Too thick

I got this in my Birch Box and did not like it at all! I felt like I was putting on spackling paste from the hardware store! The product is so super thick and I didn't feel like it added anything to my complexion. There are better sunscreens out there.

Silky

Product went on very smoothly, did not feel sticky
I also found that just a small amount covers a large area
A specific sunscreen for your face is important

Ordering it now!

I received this sample in my Birchbox and tried it on a day I was heading to the lake. It made my face look great and protected it from the sun ALL day. It also didn't wear off when I got in the water.

White cast
Purchased

The Natural Skin Tone is sold out, but my skin tone is NC15 so I thought I'd be able to make the Light Skin Tone Version work. No. Even on my fair skin this creates a patchy white mess that doesn't seem to sink in no matter how much I blend it out. The texture also seems a bit more emollient and not as matte as the Natural Skin Tone version. What is up with that. I may be returning this.

Goes on nice

I sampled this but it is hard to give a complete review because I can only use it on my forehead. It has Zinc and I have had reactions to products with Zinc in it before. I can say it goes on very nice and blends well to my somewhat fair skin. It doesn't have any perfume odor which is good. I did notice that it does carry an ingredient called Dimethicone. I started researching about a month ago everything that was in all of my lotions because I have such sensitive skin and the thing is that Dimethicone can for some people cause breakouts. So it's one of those things you have to try it to know.

So smooth

I love the flawless coverage and how soft my face feels when I apply it. The fact that it is oil-free is definitely a bonus, since summer is almost among us.

Nice

Nice matte finish and has a good smooth feel. Not greasy or shiny! I compare to Super Goop CC Cream.
