Half a decade ago, hyaluronic acid was but an inside baseball term used among the beauty industry and formula obsessives. But nowadays, it seems to be on the tip of everyone's tongue—and the top of every skincare product's ingredient list. There's a growing proliferation of body lotions with hyaluronic acid, and a popular option among reviewers is Neutrogena's Hydro Boost gel cream.
Hyaluronic acid's main feature is not its ability to moisturize the skin, but to maintain its moisture. This, in turn, helps dissipate the appearance of fine lines and promote collagen production. Those are important anti-aging benefits for your face as well as for your body.
To buy: $9 (was $10); amazon.com.
Neutrogena's hyaluronic acid-infused body lotion is a five-star hit with more than 2,000 Amazon shoppers. Aside from its moisturizing properties, multiple users have praised how well it absorbs thanks to the light hybrid gel-cream texture. Another major benefit mentioned by several users is its ability to diminish crepey textures and soften skin.
"My skin was horrible & nothing was working," one reviewer shared. "I bought this on a whim and was amazed how well it worked."
Another Amazon shopper shared that they are a Type 1 diabetic with hypothyroidism. When it's cold, their hands turn into "worn out, dried up pieces of leather." They added, "There are some moisturizers out there that work well, but require constant reapplication and leave my hands greasy. Not this stuff. This lotion is absolute magic."
Several shoppers mentioned that the product works so well that they have become loyal, repeat buyers. The best part of this lotion seems to be its noticeable efficacy, but it is also a super affordable buy at only $9 on Amazon.
