Ultimate Sheer Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 wins instant points for listing titanium dioxide plus avobenzone among its active ingredients, so sufficient UVA protection is assured. It has a slightly fluid, thin texture that blends decently and sets to a nearly matte finish suitable for normal to slightly oily skin. True to its name, coverage is sheer and definitely more akin to a tint than a true foundation. All four colors are excellent and there are options for light to tan skin. The formula is fragrance-free.

Note: This foundation’s rating is due to its overall performance rather than its SPF rating. Due to concerns about people not applying sunscreen liberally enough to get the amount of SPF protection stated on the label, it is often recommended to look for SPFs with ratings higher than 15. If you plan to use foundation as your sole source of facial sun protection, consider using one rated SPF 20 or greater. If the foundation with sunscreen you choose is rated less than an SPF 20, we strongly advise applying it over a daytime moisturizer rated SPF 15 or greater and following it with a pressed powder rated SPF 15 or greater. That way, you’re ensuring sufficient broad-spectrum protection which is essential for having and maintaining healthy, younger-looking skin at any age.

Active Titanium Dioxide (w/w 5.6%), Octinoxate (w/w 3%), Avobenzone (w/w 1%)

Inactive Ingredients: Water (Aqua/Eau), Talc, Butylene Glycol, Mineral Oil (Paraffinum Liquidum), Stearic Acid, Mica, Glyceryl Stearate, Iron Oxides (CI 77492), Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Sodium Laureth 4 Phosphate, Phenoxyethanol, Iron Oxide (CI 77491), Triethanolamine, Xanthan Gum, Iron Oxides (CI 77499), Methylparaben, Disodium EDTA, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid)

Wet 'n' Wild is one of the few cosmetics companies around that prides itself on being extraordinarily cheap, although the prices have increased across the board since we last revisited this brand. But don't let its hokey name and pre-teen marketing tactics deter you, because there are some great options available, and the packaging has improved in almost every category. The best-performing products will seem like steals, while the less impressive to horrible products will quickly have you thinking, "you get what you pay for." It is not very often that a line offers such a procession of clear-cut winners and dismal losers, but once you know what to focus on, you won't get soaked by Wet 'n' Wild. This line is available in most major drugstores across the country, and, like most drugstore lines, does not offer testers. Interestingly, the selection of Wet 'n' Wild in Canadian drugstores tends to be better than what U.S. shoppers will find.

    No significant UVA protection!
    • I bought 2 (lot number 120548 exp 2015/03 and lot 121635 exp 2015/05) a month ago. The actives listed are Octinoxate 6% and Oxybenzone 2%. Too late to return them when I noticed this. Your review says it has titanium oxide. I am tossing these. Otherwise, the makeup is very good and sheer. From now on, I will check the igredients list as soon as I buy.
