A mineral facial sunscreen with SPF 30 that will provide broad spectrum protection for your face without irritating your skin. Zinc and titanium act like tiny mirrors that reflect sun rays off your face rather than creating a chemical reaction on your skin. This non-greasy formula goes on easily and doubles as a light moisturizer. Packed with nourishing natural ingredients that help keep skin healthy and balanced. No break outs!
Please take note that your Reflector may come in prior packaging as we support Cocoon in the transition to their rebrand.

I bought this as a face sunscreen. It works well in terms of sun protection. I found it a bit chalky and thick. I had better success with Salt & Stone, SPF 30 because it was creamier.
I love the ingredients that are in this formula and a little bit of product goes a long way! I've purchased this a few times and I'd recommend to use a small amount after moisturizing and it should go on like butter without making your face pale.
I tried La Spa sunscreen as well but I keep coming back to this sunscreen. It is thick but my skin never feels irritated. La Spa feels ok but the oil does not get absorbed in my skin, and it stays wet even after half an hr (which makes my clothes and hats oily too) so I end up wiping it off. The only downside of Reflector is because how thick it is, I couldn't get the last 1/5 of sunscreen from the bottom of the bottle. I managed to scoop some out but it gets messy.
Thank you so much for this review. The comparison is super helpful.
One thing that has helped me with my bottle of Reflector is giving it a GOOD, HARD shake before each time I use it! I do find that it helps not leave the product so thick as it gets towards the end.
I like the recyclable packaging, but it left a stickiness on my skin and I could always feel that I was wearing it. Sunscreen can cause breakouts and rashes for me, but this one did not!
It always looked chalky no matter what I tried. I’m not fair so you could really see how white it looked on my skin. I applied a light cream as a base but still chalky to apply. I would have to rub it into my face quite hard that my skin got irritated . I tried a serum as a base before applying it with the same results. I might have gotten a bad batch because then it wouldn’t pump out of the bottle. Disappointed with my money spent ☹️
Sorry you were disappointed with this sunscreen as well. One trick is to shake before each use - a real generous shake. The minerals can settle and make it harder to pump. There is a slight white cast you speak for sure . You were disappointed with the La Spa stick - but their tinted SPF is lovely! I wear shade Golden. Smooth, tinted, and mattifying yet hydrating!
