CoTZ® Sensitive SPF 40

All skin deserves to be babied, but there are some skin types that need just a little bit of extra T.L.C., especially when it comes to sun protection. This gentle mineral complex is soft and sheer, and it works to protect and soothe even the most sensitive skin. Recommended by dermatologists, CoTZ SENSITIVE provides your skin only with what it needs—and irritating additives can check themselves at the door.

The CoTZ Sensitive SPF 40 is a surprising sunscreen product. It is the silkiest, smoothest sunscreen I have ever tried. It can be compared to a pore primer in its texture. I really liked it and it is my favorite Birch Box "find" to date. I definitely recommend this product.

Smooth, colorless, and safe for your skin!

This sunscreen has an interesting texture - kind of like a primer or pore filler. It has a brown color but does not leave any visible color on my face - it blends in seamlessly and smooths out skin kind of like a primer!

It also scored low on EWG which in general is a good thing - it's not filled with harmful chemicals or additives.

I also like that it doesn't leave your face kind of bluish or greasy like how other sunscreens can. This is really light!

Broke out my arms
Purchased

I was incredibly surprised to find that this product broke out my arms and chest, since it is supposed to be a "sensitive" skin product. I ordered another CoTZ product at the same time, and that one didn't cause any issues but for some reason this one caused little angry red bumps to appear all over my arms an chest. NOT happy. It is also very thick, and very difficult to apply (maybe that's partly due to my skin being very dry? But still...).

Must Have
Purchased

This is THE ONLY sunscreen I can use. I have tried many others and I always have major issues with sunscreens running into my eyes and creating a burning, stinging, itchy monster. Since using Cotz I don't have to worry about my skin or my eyes getting burned.

Love it
Purchased

I love that I can use this even when I'm doing TCA/Mandelic peels. I used it earlier today while out kayaking in the river for three hours. FL has brutal sun and I show absolutely no signs of sun on my face. Didn't sweat it into my eyes either.

Horrible not sheer

My mother gave me a sample of this and it was gross on my skin. The spf was very thick and hard to rub in. It would not even completely rub into my face and left dark streaks. I ended up washing it off and throwing the rest away. I'm very light skinned so it was very noticeable on my face.

Good sun protection but sticky formula
Purchased

I bought this because of the SPF 40 and because I have sensitive skin but it feels too sticky and oily to wear everyday. Would not purchase again

Multipurpose use!

This product smells great and I love that it has some color- when applied, it gives your lips a polished, nude look. I apply it alone or over colored lipstick. The only con I would say is that it doesn't last very long on the lips and I am constantly reapplying.

Best. Sunscreen. Ever.
Purchased

For years I have been searching for the perfect sunscreen for my face, and now I've found it. Wow! I have tried drugstore brands and department store brands and natural health store brands and I've either broken out or burned. 12 days on the beach using CoTZ and I did not break out - not one blemish, nor did I burn - not even a little. I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally have a sunscreen that works for me. Two thumbs up!

Great

I used the sample of sunscreen during a half marathon. It protected my face, wasn't greasy, and didn't smear into my eyes!
