For Your Face is a solid facial serum made from a blend of traditional and well-established cosmetic ingredients. The oils, butters, and waxes have several benefits for the skin, but the main purpose is to aid in skin protection and minimize any skin barrier damage. Like any moisturizer, For Your Face is designed to work in conjunction with the oils our skin naturally produces to help keep our skin moisturized by preventing water loss.

Tuff Stuff has a similar basic foundation but with a thicker, more balm-like consistency. At ~30% zinc oxide, this broad spectrum formula is designed to shield delicate facial skin from harsh environmental conditions. The thicker texture creates a physical and water resistant UV barrier to keep your skin protected and hydrated all day long. If you’re going swimming or adventuring outside all day, you won’t want to forget it!
Did you know that the For Your Face lotion is good for taking off your Tuff Stuff after too? “Like-dissolves-like” means that compounds of a similar chemistry are soluble within each other. Both these products are oil-based so if you’re having trouble fully removing your Tuff Stuff after a long surf or hike (which is good... it’s supposed to be sticky!), rub a little lotion into it and you’ll be able to whip it away no problem!
I bought a tin of tuff stuff back in maybe 2016?? Loved it then but love it even more now. The for your face smells amazing and feels good on sunned and salty skin.
These products are absolutely amazing!! As someone who's never been able to commit to a skincare routine this has been game changing. Applying these products daily feels more like a meditative activity than anything else and my skin has literally never felt so good! If you're looking for sustainable skin care that works and you can feel good about, don't look anywhere else, you've found it!!
I love these products!! The face lotion smells amazing and provides wonderful deep moisture to my skin. The Tuff Stuff is also amazing, went for an overnight backpacking trip and only had to apply once for great coverage! Also no white cast and blends nicely with lighter olive toned skin. I use it daily and it doesn’t feel heavy or smell like any typical sunscreen. Can’t recommend this bundle enough
Sunscreen is a little too hard to apply for every day use, but I keep it with me for emergencies when I’m outside a lot. Love the tint.
For your face is also really nice and left my face feeling soft, but also probably not for every day
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Danielle :)
I'm glad you are finding ways to use the products in ways that suit you best! The Tuff Stuff is easiest to apply when warm - you can soften it up by keeping the tin in your pocket or by rubbing the formula in circular motions with your finger in the tin or on the back of your hand. You can also dilute a little bit with another moisturizer for a lighter finish!
The For Your Face lotion may work best for you as part of your nighttime skincare routine. Waking up with soft dewy skin is the best! :)
Product is great a pleasure to use but you should warn people about the amount of lather it produces, one needs to rinse several times. I must say that it is quite “sticky” though.
Thanks for your review Anthony! A little tip for removing the Tuff Stuff is to use another oil-based cleanser or face serum - Tuff Stuff is also oil-based and because 'like dissolves like', you should be able to wipe it away much easier after using another oil-based product to lift it up. And you're right, it is quite sticky! The original formula was designed for surf instructors who need super long lasting and water-resistant protection for days on the beach hence the name Tuff Stuff :) If you would like a less 'intense' finish, try diluting some with your regular moisturizer!
