When it comes to people on the internet, I usually take their opinions with a grain of salt — but for me, Reddit is the exception. The so-called “Front Page of the Internet” is less of a page and more of a discussion forum, where users can join the communities that interest them and share their expertise in a brutal, honest, anonymous, vote-based way. It was on Reddit (the subreddit r/SkincareAddiction, to be exact) that I stumbled upon the supposed “best moisturizer in the world.”
Mind you, I have tried just about every solution to fix my dry, flaky face, which had been getting worse since I accidentally damaged my skin’s moisture barrier with a one-two punch of sunburn and over-exfoliation. After that, my complexion has consistently looked patchy. I couldn’t find a foundation that wouldn’t flake. I’ve since attempted the bizarre, cult-favorite practice of slugging, $60 serums, CBD creams, gold-infused face masks — you name it. Nothing helped.
So, needless to say, I was floored when the Neutrogena Hydro Boost gel-cream worked better than all of them combined.
