If you have a special skin type or condition like rosacea or acne, or recently had a peel or microdermabrasion treatment, try CoTZ SENSITIVE, SPF 40.

CoTZ

Birchbox Breakdown

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 CoTZ. Silky-smooth to the touch, the formula blends in quickly and leaves behind a sheer matte finish. It's free of oil, harsh chemicals, and fragrances, and won't upset sensitive skin. Best for medium skin tones, the complexion-matching formula blends in seamlessly and masks minor flaws.

How to Use

At least 15 minutes before stepping outside, apply a generous amount to your face and neck. Reapply at least every two hours; if you're swimming or sweating a lot, reapply every 80 minutes.

Active Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide 8% (Sunscreen), Zinc Oxide 3.8% (Sunscreen)

CoTZ
Purchased

I purchased this product after a friend recommended it to me. I work 12-hour shifts and never have time to touch up my make up, plus I hate actually feeling my foundation on my skin. That being said, the CoTZ Face Natural Skin Tone SPF 40 works really well for me. It blends in smoothly (I just use my fingertips) and doesn't feel heavy or greasy at all, nor does it make me break out. The matte finish helps to mask small flaws, and the one-shade-fits-all gives my pale skin a healthy-looking glow without looking unnatural. A little concealer and powder finish off my face, and I feel presentable for my work without taking much time or wearing too much makeup. I really like this as a more affordable alternative to other foundations or tinted moisturizers.

need more SPF!!

I burn really easy, so it was nice to get something with a higher spf. And it has worked so far. I probably won't push my luck beyond the sample. That said, I still use at least spf 50.

Laughable

I was really looking forward to trying this, since I have skin that burns and freckles easily in the summer, but when I went to try it, I was literally laughing at how small the sample size is. I couldn't even cover my whole face! Im also not sure what the logic behind making it "tinted to match skin color", since A. It is colorless when it rubs in, and B. This only caters to a specific tone of Caucasian skin. I honestly don't even feel like I can properly gauge how effective this would be based on the tiny sample, so this product won't be getting my business.

Tinted?

Sunscreen is always a good plan, but I'm not really much for a tinted sunscreen. Otherwise it seem like a great product.

A sunscreen I almost love

Myself, I don't need a high spf sun screen, nor do I need the tent that comes with the use of this product. It does smell good, it is smooth. But, it's not a perfect product for me.

Love the tint

I think this product is great, and I love that it comes out brown for that extra tint. Most my healthy tan lotions are really white.

sunscreen

Ok, I stole this from my husband's box so he didn't actually use it, but it seems like a nice facial sunscreen. I'm always ingredient conscious
