CoTZ Face Moisture has a lightweight, velvety-smooth texture that just glides on skin without a greasy or tacky feel and sets to a matte finish. It actually feels more like a silicon-y primer and pulls off double duty by providing a smooth canvas for makeup application while also blurring my large pores…score!
This is definitely a great addition to my list of Best Sunscreens to Wear Under Makeup. Also, the formula provides a light dose of moisture and is hydrating enough for my dry skin (in these summer months) so I don’t need to use a separate moisturizer.
As you can see from the ingredients list above, the formula contains quite a few silicones so if you tend to avoid silicone-based skincare or makeup products, this sunscreen might not be a good choice for you.
The sheer tint doesn’t provide any coverage at all, but I love how it blends seamlessly on my light-to-medium skin tone and ensures there’s no chalky white cast to worry about (despite a high percentage of zinc oxide in the formula!) The tint is very light and blends invisibly into skin so I think it would work well for most skin tones.
Not to mention, this fragrance-free sunscreen is also suitable for sensitive skin types. It’s free of any preservatives, parabens, phthalates, fragrance and is not tested on animals.
Also, CoTZ Face Moisture SPF 35 does not contain any chemical sunscreen filters like oxybenzone and octinoxate that have been shown to be damaging for coral reefs. So, the formula is reef-friendly too!
In fact, The CoTZ brand, which stands for “Contains Only Titanium dioxide and Zinc oxide” is committed to creating healthier mineral-only sunscreens that work by reflecting the harmful UVA/UVB rays away from the skin’s surface.
CoTZ Face Moisture Lightly Tinted SPF 35 is a hydrating sunscreen and pore-blurring primer all-in-one! Formulated with 16% Zinc Oxide, this is a cosmetically elegant mineral sunscreen you will want-to-wear. The lightly tinted formula blends invisibly with most skin tones and leaves skin nicely prepped for makeup with a smooth, shine-free base.
Not only that, this sunscreen is also environmentally-friendly and cruelty-free for lightweight, feel-good protection!
