I find this product very difficult to apply. It is not greasy and has an almost putty-like texture. While it isn't as ghostly white as many physical sunscreens, it leaves my fair olive skin looking ashen. I really have to work at making a smooth application. (I don't use this when I want a 30 second slather and run out the door morning process.) As I mentioned, it isn't nearly as greasy as most of the competition but upon drying, it does have a slightly tacky finish. My first tube has had a packaging failure as the cap is defective and does not seal. This is unacceptable in a relatively pricey product!

I have been using this sunscreen for about 20 years now and it is the best I've used. The formulation has changed over the years to be less sticky and smoother to apply. I have sensitive, part Asian skin that freckles easily and has melasma issues. After using acid peels regularly, I found I could no longer use chemical sunscreens on my skin without them burning and giving me uncomfortable rashes. COTZ has been a skin savior. Sunscreen is useless unless you apply it regularly, everyday, no matter what. This product, unlike chemical sunscreens, can be applied right over your eyelids without irritation. There is no burning or stinging even when you sweat. During the winter, I put a little Cetaphil on my skin before appling COTZ because I need a bit more moisture. During the summer, I use it alone. It needs to be emulsified on your fingertips before applying, and then spread fully into the skin. I use liquid foundation with mineral powder over it, or during the summer just mineral powder. I tried every sunscreen known to man, up to the most expensive, and have never found a better one than this. It is especially good for people who use acid peels because it does not cause irritation like chemical sunscreens can. I suspect the people who have had problems with it have used a bit too much or did not massage it into the skin enough. If too much is used, it can look a little pasty, but the excess is easily wiped off. I can used regular chemical sunscreens on the rest of my body, but the only product I use on my face is COTZ. It is a wonderful sunscreen. I perspire a lot and it holds up quite well. I just blot with a tissue or a handkerchief instead of wiping my face. And most importantly, I get regular compliments on my skin, people think I am younger than I am, and my dermatologist said that because of regular suncreen use, my skin is in very good condition for my age. As I said before, every day use of spf, no matter what, is what helps keep the brown spots at bay, and COTZ is easy to add to a daily plan. And from my experience in dealing with melasma, sunscreen is a minimum requirement, as well as always having a hat to cover the face or a nice big umbrella because in strong sun no sunscreen is going to protect you 100%.

TERRIBLE STUFF. Color is like mud. Finish is just like regular, dry skin - matte and dull. This product does not give you that white glow that zinc sunblocks do. Don't like it just for that. This stuff can't compare to how beautiful my skin looks with my usual whitening zinc oxide. Will stick to my zinc, it whitens and brightens my skin beautifully, and I always get tons of compliments whenever I use it. Won't buy this again.

This is for the tinted face sunblock, SPF 40. HG. Acts like a primer, blends well with a variety of foundations (I currently have three in rotation), effective sunblock. I have fair skin that burns easily, with sunspots due to 40 years as an active, lifelong Angeleno. Loving this Cotz for face. Skin looks fresh and matte, not dry, and definitely not greasy. Will never buy another SPF for face!

This (The Cotz 58) is a soothing sunscreen that does not irritate my uber-oily, hyper-sensitive skin. As a reviewer wrote below, it IS like a tinted moisturizer with sunscreen added. It is a little thick, it takes a little time to set/"dry", and it does have a faint whitish cast (I'm NC30) once "dry." I use this on dry, sunny days instead of foundation, and top it with powder--and it DOES look like I've done my makeup nicely. It doesn't control my oil, nor my sweating, although it is listed as water resistant. It DOES transfer--everywhere....which doesn't work for me. Hence, I only use it as a makeup/foundation replacement. This requires oil-removal.The Good: Soothing, Non-Irritating, Great Sun-Protection, skin feels amazing after wearing this all day (post-cleansing), has not broken me out or given me clogs/blackheads. Is a good "all in one" product for daily face-wear if going to office or just out and about. NOT great for 12-hour, sweaty shifts (tint/coloring transfers to medical masks).The Cons: This transfers like crazy! Can't be worn on body because it leaves blotches (tinted) on whatever touches it! Can't blot your face with a towel, because the tint comes off on the towel (although most of it stays on your face). It is a great makeup replacement, but that's not exactly what I want when I go to the beach or am active outdoors. NOT sweatproof.I have repurchased, but I am hoping to find a better product. I love my Sunkiller Kid's Milk (Japanese Sun Screen), but it's not available in the US, and I want/need to find something here in the USA--and that can be used for body too.Update: I have discovered that a light dusting of Black Opal Oil Blocking Powder looks great over this, and keeps me much matter during the day. It's an excellent combo for me. I still wouldn't recommend Cotz58 for very active/humid days; will stick with my tried & true Sunkiller Baby Milk (Now named Sunkiller Mild Milk for 2013) for active/humid days.Update (8/10/13): I have discovered CoTZ - Face Sunscreen for Natural Skin Tones, SPF 40; I like this MUCH better. It looks better on my skin, has good staying power, controls oil (for me) relatively well, and I can use this instead of foundation. It works well even in humidity, and does not transfer as much as the Cotz 58. I will finish up my backup tubes of Cotz 58, but am using CoTZ Face for daily wear instead of foundation, and am loving it.

This is a review for this product and the COTZ Natural Skin SPF40. SPF58: I was looking for a good tinted mineral sunscreen since mineral sunscreens always make me look like a ghost, even though I have very pale skin. This stuff is not it. It comes out of the tube with visible brown particles in it, which fortunately do not hurt or show up on my face when I apply it. The tiny is mild and blends perfectly. It's easy to apply and stays on all day. The big downside is that it's very drying to my dry winter skin, no matter how moisturizer I apply the night before. I think this would be great for those with oily skin, but I can't wear this in the wintertime. The COTZ Natural Skin SPF40, which I've reviewed, is a much better product. I give it a 3. Natural Skin SPF40: This stuff is nice. It blends easily and beautifully, dries very easily, doesn't feel heavy or greasy, and doesn't break me out. I'm very pale and the color gave me the tiniest tint of a tan, which was very natural looking. It was matte all day, with a tiny bit of oul from mu forehead starting to show in the afternoon, but i just blotted. It accentuates dry skin, but anything with mineral sunscreen does and this does it much less than other sunscreens I've tried. The downsides are that it has only 3% zinc, which is not enough for good UVA protection. Plus, it is too during for my winter skin. I love the way it applies, looks, and feels, but it's too drying no matter how much I moosturize the night before. This would be great for those with oily skin. I give it a 5.

This is another review for Fallene Face Cotz SPF 40. I don't have any idea why this stuff is not more popular!! I have VERY sensitive skin, especially to sun screens- they tend to set my sensitive skin on fire. Face Cotz is PERFECT. The texture is amazing! It's a dry consistency and goes on siiiiiilky smooth. It's almost like a primer...As far as being water resistant- I went on a float trip down a local river a few weeks ago and used this product on my face, neck, chest and shoulders. Used a water resistant chemical spray sun screen for my back, arms and legs. I reapplied the spray sun screen multiple times and only reapplied Face Cotz once. Want to guess which parts of me were burnt after floating in the river for 8 hours and which parts WEREN'T?!

There's no category on MA for Fallene Face Cotz SPF 40, but it's a miracle product! The texture is dry and smooth, and it doesn't rub off on clothing. It's great on the face, neck, chest, arms and back of hands. They also make a new tinted version which is a little beige, but I mix it with the regular to get a good match to my fair skin. The price is good and even though the tube is small, it lasts a long time. No breakouts and no irritation. Perfect for sensitive skin!

Skin: Acne-prone, Medium, Not Sure
I've got hyperpigmented, freckly, large-pored, oily-yet-moisture-starved, acne-prone skin. I used La Roche Posay Fluide for a long time, but still noticed new freckles and darkening of pre-existing ones. Eventually, I figured out that the potency of my LRP sunscreen was deactivated by the use of mineral powder (Everday Minerals) on top of it.Man, after doing all that stinky research, only to find out that all these good for you products can't do squat when used together.I tried a bunch of non-mineral makeup, but my hormonal, sensitive skin hated them all. Lovely scars along my chin, jawline and cheeks as proof.So I discovered this non-chemical high SPF sunscreen and I"m in heaven. No new freckles, acts as a nice primer for my mineral powder foundation, and my face seems to love it so far. Maybe it's the zinc, which is supposed to be very healing right?Only drawback for me is that I gotta wait for the stuff to set a bit before applying my foundation, otherwise everything pills up. Small price for happy skin.

Picked this up in my never ending search for a sunscreen that multitasks. One that can deliver sun protection and work as primer and makeup and does not get greasy. Not much to ask, right? Ventured into tinted sunscreens lately because I was tired of layering: treatment serum, moisturizer, primer, sunscreen and foundation. Most mornings I just use moisturizer and sunscreen and powder since I'm just too impatient. You must give each item time to properly absorb and dry before going on to the next one. Cotz is creamy and has a slight tint and I've been able to get away with just powder on top and still look finished. I wouldn't wear it alone and go out, since it leaves whitish cast but not unflattering. Of course the ultimate test is consistency in performance over time. Using it on and off for two weeks I've been happy with it. Didn't get dry and tight even without moisturizing at the end of the day and my powder held up, just needed a touch up or two. Need to try few more tinted sunscreens to measure Cotz against, but I'd give a cautious thumbs up.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
