have used this product for many years...i am very very fair, and it acts as my foundation as well as protecting my skin
Pros: gives me a nice glow, all i need is some blush (gel) and lipstick, some eye make up...perfect...smooths and blends discolorations for me
Cons: don't think the result will be as good for everyone...the product must be worked in on freshly washed and very lightly moisturized skin..foundation can be put over it if you want a perfect finish...let the moisturizer sit a few minutes, then the cotes, then cream foundation if you like

Great product for complete facial sunscreen coverage, which is the location where I apply it exclusively.
Pros: The claims concerning this product are all true - easy to use, complete sunscreen coverage, & NO adverse complexion side effects. Also reasonably priced.

I love this product. It is the best sunblock that i have ever used. Does not irritate my sensitive eyes when i put sunblock under and over the eyelids and over the face. Can easily put makeup on after it dries and it protects my skin very well from the strong sun when we are in florida half the year!
Pros: Easily absorbs, non irritating to the eyes, excellent block and coverage, can apply makeup after it dries!
Cons: It is expensive and runs out quickly since i use it every single day!

Great product. I live in Colorado. I wear a hat most of the time I am outdoors. However when biking my face is very exposed. I put this on every morning and get great protection from the sun even when biking.

I HAVE BEEN USING THIS PRODUCT FOR MANY YEARS. I AM CONFIDENT THAT ITS INGREDIENTS MAKE IT A SUPERIOR PRODUCT THAN THOSE ON THE MARKET WITH EQUAL CLAIMS.
Pros: BLOCKS UVA/UVBRAYS WELL
Cons: TEXTURE IS THICK AND COLOR CASTS A WHITE HUE ON MY OLIVE COMPLECTED SKIN.

Excellent. I used this product while I was in Cuba in June for 10 days. We worked out in the sun all day. I NEVER burned. My skin is very sensitive, but I had no reaction. All the others working began to use it as well.
Pros: It is not greasy, and, it blocks the sun. It has a slight color to it, so it almost works as a foundation. It is also gentle. I highly recommend it.

I have used this product for several years and love the way it blocks the sun, even when I'm on the river in the summers.

This is an excellent product that I have used daily for the past 20 years. I credit it with keeping my face unwrinkled and free of age- related stains.
Pros: It is easily applied and sinks into the skin leaving an invisible, protective film that lasts all day. Excellent packaging permits easy dispensing and keeps product clean and protected from deterioration.
Excellent product. I have fair skin, prone to hyper-pigmentation. This is one of the only products (besides their sister product COTZ) that works for me. No freckles, no sunburn.
Pros: Hands down one of the most effective sunscreens available.
Cons: I am not crazy about the way it feels on my face, but I don't wear makeup over it, so it doesn't bother me.
This is the only sunscreen that I have tried that helps block the darkening of my melasma on my face. I have great confidence in this product!
Pros: I have lupus and my skin is very sensitive, I often have problems with sunblocks causing burning and irritation. Total block is great because I put it on and it feels soothing, it calms my skin rather than irritates it and it does a great job of blocking out the sun. It is also great under makeup. It dries to a nice smooth, matte finish and does not leave my face greasy or shiny. I use this every day and my skin has benefited.
Been using this product for 5 years. It is great.

I have used this product for a number of years and like the fact that it protects my facial skin so well in Florida. I started using it in Nevada so it has been tested.
Pros: The consistency of the product has changed within the year and I like it much better.
Cons: It can make undersurface bumps if you use too much.
