The Best Sunscreen Under $15 - The Ordinary's Mineral UV Filters
Applying SPF is particularly important in the summer because of more frequent exposure to the sun and UV radiation than the rest of the year; we never skip this essential skincare step.
You'll love the wallet friendly sunscreen from The Ordinary with both options under $15. The Ordinary range of Mineral UV Filters formulas’ offer SPF protection along with antioxidant, hydration, and anti-irritant support.
The Ordinary’s sunscreen product is a thicker in texture however, that being said, it is fairy easy to blend the product into skin and it doesn’t feel heavy at all. Key ingredients in this rich lotion include Micronized Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, which help shield skin from environmental aggressors, a Bio-Sugar Complex that offers long-term hydration, as well as Antioxidants.

It is not uncommon to hear complaints about the greasiness of conventional sunscreens from those who dislike wearing them, but The Ordinary’s variant seems to do the opposite. The product gives your skin a mattifying effect. And if you tend to get an oily T-zone during the warmer months, this sunscreen really does work in your favor. It reduces shine without creating a drying effect.
The Mineral UV Filter formulas avoid the use of any nanoparticles. Instead, a refined dispersion of micronized ZnO and TiO2 in flexible, high-volatility, non-comedogenic silicones allows the formulations to remain extremely lightweight by optimizing the amount of the blocking agents. Our formulation uses mainly ZnO for its protective effects (because in addition to reflecting/refracting light, ZnO is actually also able to absorb UV rays without creating oxygen radicals) and the supporting TiO2 that it contains is only in rutile form (no anatase form of TiO2 is used at all since it's an aggressive producer of free radicals).
- Bio-Active Antioxidant Network: A potent combination that scavenges and neutralizes free radicals, minimizes the intensity of UV radiation penetrating the skin, visibly protects biological membranes and supports the skin response to UV exposure.
- Bio-Sugar Complex: A unique blend of hygroscopic molecules with Multi-layer coverage providing both short and long-term hydration and also naturally increases skin’s own capacity to hold water.
- Skin Identical Lipids: Lipids that visibly restore the compromised barrier and prevents transepidermal water loss (TEWL).
- Tasmanian Pepperberry: Rich in flavanones, anthocyanins, and minerals, this active technology helps to calm stressed skin, acting almost immediately.
Shake well before use. Apply to face liberally and evenly 15 to 20 minutes before UV exposure. To maintain protection during continued UV exposure, reapply every 2 hours or after material water exposure, towel-drying, swimming, or extensive perspiration. Use a water-resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating. Suitable for all skin tones.
