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 chic sun protection brand CoTZ. The lightweight formula is silky smooth to the touch, blends in quickly, and leaves behind a sheer matte finish. Perfect for layering under foundation or BB cream, the multitasking formula also protects your skin from those unappealing sun-accelerated fine lines and wrinkles. 

How it Works

Free of harsh chemicals, oils, and fragrances, CoTZ FACE Natural Skin Tone deflects damaging UVA-UVB rays without irritating 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 and if you‘re swimming or engaging in vigorous activities (think: sweaty games of intermural kickball) reapply every 80 minutes. 

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

I was excited to try this and I was not too impressed. I did not like the way if felt on my face and it made me break out.

This product was ok, average at best. I don't think I'd buy this in the future.

CoTZ Face Natural Skin Tone SPF 40
Sampled

The shade was a little dark for me. I used it under my foundation and it made me appear a tad orange under natural lighting. I have some light acne scarring and it did nothing to help with that. I did love the velvety texture and SPF though.

Received in my box.

I received a sample of this in my monthly box. The color looks way to dark at first but it blends into almost nothing. (I am very fair) It's very smooth, almost like a primer. It's a good product of you are looking for something like this. I however am not.
