  2. This sunscreen is seriously the best I’ve ever tried.
    I’ve experimented with so many different face sunscreen products, but none of them dry as beautifully as COTZ. I have combo skin so usually any products I use start off looking matte, then become super oily-looking by mid-day.

    It leaves my face looking matte all day and honestly I don’t even wear foundation anymore because I like how the tint makes my face look.

  4. We received a sample of this product from our dermotologist. Finally, we decided to try it. It seems to be the best sunscreen
    that we have tried. It has a color, but this disappears on the face. It feels great!

  6. The finest facial sunscreen on the market bar none. They have developed the secret sauce. Goes on smooth and doesn’t dry all day. My only request is that they produce a lighter shade…..PLEASE!! Right now I have to blend it with the regular version.


  7. I got a sample of this from beautyconla last year and I loved it! It made my skin feel smooth and helped with the appearance of my pores. After I finished my samples, I tried different ones, but some how I came back to using this and I love it. I have two backups! 🙂

  9. Received this in a beauty box subscription, I have to say that its the best sunscreen/foundation/primer that I have ever tried. Love it!

  10. This is the best tinted moisturizer SPF that I could find from designer brand to drugstore. It works as a primer, doesn’t settle into fine lines, it doesn’t separate from oil and sweat post workout, matte finish but not drying so it flows over instead of highlighting wrinkles. Its the holy grail to my morning routine. It is perfect to apply a touch of concealer and powder over for a quick daily fresh faced look. And it works with my powder foundation if I am doing a photoshoot. I do have white Ivory fair skin and this is just a touch too dark so I also buy the non-tinted version and mix them together. This tint is fine for anything over ghostly lol. At least the bottles are small and last a while so its not a pain to travel with them both but it would be nice to have a light version.

  11. I have used Face Tinted SPF 40 for many years before the name change to Face Prime and Protect. Will not use anything else. I don’t need foundation and it causes no breakouts for my oily skin & wears well all day. This is seriously the best!!


  12. This is my holy grail product. I don’t even need any foundation its simply that great and my skin is super sensitive and eczema prone skin. This product has the least ingredients you will ever find fragnance free, tinted, moisturizer and its like all in one. It’s a must try mineral sunscreen for sensitive skin goes well under makeup and gives smooth finish.

  13. Hands down this specific tinted primer with spf40 is the best product I’ve ever used. I’m a product junkie because of the fact I have malassezia folliculitis ands it’s a PITA to deal with. Goes amazing with my makeup days or no makeup days because of the light tint. Makes me look poreless and blurs my diminishing acne scars. Scars are actually getting better because of this holy grail. I’ve had such problems finding sunscreen that won’t aggravate my fungal acne but need to prevent scars getting darker, this work great in thats aspect! I don’t recommend trying this but I was excited to have found this product I accidentally slept with it on and amazingly I woke with no breakouts!!! To me that’s insane because I’m so sensitive to sleeping with products I’ll breakout in whatever type of acne the next day but not with this! Anyways I stocked up with 2 backups when Ulta was having a sale! Thank you for making this delicious sauce. Please, Don’t Ever Change the Formulation, Please!!!
