    This sunscreen has a matte finish and a slight bronze tint to it. I'm extremely fair skinned, usually the lightest color in any makeup range, so wearing this alone makes me look orange and weird. I mix it 50/50 on the back of my hand with the Cotz Face Suncreen for lighter skin tones (which I also can't wear alone, since it leaves a ghostly white tint) and the color is perfect. I only wish they provided more color options so I could skip this step. It's provides decent color coverage but it doesn't look like you're wearing any makeup.

    Great velvety texture, probably due to the silicone content in it - if you're used silicone-based face serums before, you might know this texture. I have dry skin and cystic acne and this doesn't trigger breakouts at all, and it goes on with a smooth matte finish that keeps me from getting shiny.

    I absolutely loved the product and stopped using foundation and used this instead during the day. However, I read a review on Amazon that raised the safety issue regarding nanotechnology. The science is still being evaluated for safety on cosmetic items. I emailed the company twice with a question and they never responded. I am stopping using the product as a result because their refusal to respond raises a flag for me.

      Comments about CoTZ Face Sunscreen for Natural Skin Tones, SPF 40, 1.5 oz:

      Cotz Face is the only sunscreen I have ever tried that does not leave my face shiny. Even oil-free products usually leave a shiny finish, but Cotz Face is matte and rubs in very smoothly and easily.
      For 20 years, I used Oil of Olay SPF 15, but I am now in my late 30s and I need better protection from age spots on my upper cheeks.
      Cotz Face offers the same feel and protection as facial sunscreens sold at the dermatologist's office, but for a much better price. I apply it generously every day. I recommend it to everyone.

          Absolutely phenomenal face sunscreen. I received a sample of this and wish it were bigger! I'll have to buy the full size now. The instant I put this on my skin looked smoother and more even. I wore it under my makeup and my makeup stayed all day so it worked great as a base layer. Fantastically mattifying and not greasy at all. Love the high SPF protection. Highly recommend to those who want a high SPF sunscreen without the greasy and clogging that has become synonymous with sunscreen.

            I use this sunscreen when I exercise outside or garden. It is the absolute best sunscreen I have ever used for my face, because it remains effective even on really hot days when I sweat a lot.

                  I have sensitive skin and eczema, so I'm forever on the hunt for something that won't cause any skin issues. This product does it all! It stays on all for many hours through a heavy workload outdoors and doesn't clog my pores. While it does give off a very faint whitish tint, it goes on quite well and doesn't look as glaringly chalky as some other sunscreens I have worn. I think the minerals in this formula actually leave my skin looking and feeling more toned after each use.

                    I received a sample of this sunscreen from my chiropractor (of all people.) All it took was a sample, and I'm in.

                    The texture was quite unexpected...but it feels AMAZING. Silky and luxurious - really a nice feeling going on. I liked the way it made my face feel, too.

                    Put this on before a 5-mile run on a nice, but warm day. It didn't streak, or feel greasy afterward, and I especially like that it didn't have the white mask look of so many zinc oxide sunscreens.

                    I've always used cheap chain-store sunscreens, thinking they were all the same, but I will splurge for this.

                      I love this product for daily use. Now when the HUSBAND likes it too that is saying something! He does NOT like like a tacky or greasy feel on his face. Trying to find a block for daily use here in the Mile High City where we are close to the sun is a challenge, and finding something one can use on the face with no toxic OXYBENZONE is not easy, but I think we have found THE ONE. Great product, and as a woman I can also even out my skin tone in a matte way, and wear this around the delicate eye skin and no reaction, no allergic reaction anywhere else on the face. Worth every penny of the [$] cost to have safe, effective 40 SPF for your face. Also used while on vacay in Hawaii, was GREAT there as well, NO BURN! Use COTZ for body as well, works great.

                      I have been using this product for a couple of weeks. It doesn't stain clothes because it dries immediately and it stays on - doesn't sweat or rub off if you splash your face with water. Great coverage. I am using it as moisturizer in summer and I have had no problems with it. Recently went to Florida in summer for a week - totally comfortable going on and staying on in spite of high humidity.

                        This product feels wonderful on my skin. It is not oily at all. There is a tint which looks dark when it comes out of the tube but blends very sheer. I think the tint is to prevent the pastey white complexion that can result with zinc oxide, but men probably would not like this product. It is not cheap, but I would not expect a high quality, chemical-free sunscreen to be inexpensive. It is well worth the price. Try it!
