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.

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.

I got a sample on my january's box. I haven't use it until now. I have oily skin and it worked well on it. I use make up everyday and it doesn't look diferent.

Great sunscreen!

This mineral sunscreen has a consistency that makes you think it will be greasy, but it glides on perfectly with no oily feeling at all. It made my skin look and feel smoother, I'm a fan.

i got a sample of this last summer which lasted me a long time, and i finally purchased the full-size for this summer. this is nice; mattifying with sheer color which is great on my warm-toned skin, and gentle for my sensitivity.

Overall ok

I don't normally wear sun screen on a regular basis but I like the consistency and scent. I will likely use again when my wife makes me after seeing how burned I am.

Tinted sunscreens are not for me.
Sampled

This was my first Birchbox Man and I was disappointed to receive a tinted sunscreen. I got over it.

I did try it, but a tinted sunscreen is just not for me. It's too dark for my wife's skin tone, so we won't get use out of this.

The product seems nice enough. Smells pretty good too.
