Face

Choosing the appropriate face makeup is a tricky business. Wet n Wild offers consumers the chance to try these products affordably, without taking a huge risk.

  • Powder: A light dusting of pressed powder sets the makeup for the day. Wet n Wild's is oil- and fragrance-free, and contains vitamin E and aloe.
  • Blush and Bronzer: In stick, cream and powder formulas, the brand's blushes and bronzers impart a gentle, light flush of natural color to the cheekbones. Look out for the brand's special edition summer bronzer, a substantially large compact containing a versatile shade suitable for all skin tones.

Body

Though body products are not their specialty, Wet n Wild does offer a small selection of sparkling, glittery cosmetics. These can be applied anywhere for a small dose of shimmer.

  • MegaPump Bronzzer®: This sheer bronzer warms up the complexion and imparts a natural, sun-kissed glow.
  • MegaPump Glitter Gel: This sheer, sparkling, mess-free gel adds sparkle and depth to the neckline, shoulders, arms and legs.
  • MegaPump Shimmer: Less glitter and more subtle shimmer, this product imparts a luminescent glow to the skin.
  • MegaSparkle® Loose Confetti: This loose, colorful glitter imparts reflective radiance and a sheer dose of pretty shimmer.

Skin Care

Fresh Face™ Skin Care

This four-step system is comprised of botanical-infused, antioxidant-rich facial products that leave the skin hydrated, protected and smooth.

  • Cleanse: Dry skin will benefit from the gentle cream cleanser, which dissolves makeup and cleanses skin without stripping it of its natural oils. Oily skin types will enjoy the fresh, cool feel of the gel-based foaming wash.
  • Exfoliate: Slough away dead, flaky skin with this gentle scrub. Skin is left soft, renewed and revitalized with regular use.
  • Tone: This alcohol-free toner is cool and refreshing. Dry skin types need not use toner regularly, but oily types will find this comforting.
  • Moisturize: Containing SPF 15, this lightweight, hydrating facial lotion sinks into the skin and refines the texture.

Accessories

The accessories collection is packed with the tools necessary to maintain gorgeous lashes, nails and makeup. The line includes:

  • Eye shadow applicators
  • Fake eye lashes
  • Dual pencil sharpeners
  • Eyelash curlers
  • Makeup brush kit
  • Plush blush brush
