Finding a good moisturizer always feels like a small victory, but discovering a moisturizer that does more than just hydrate is like uncovering a holy grail. At least, that's how some Amazon shoppers felt when they started incorporating Bloommy's Collagen and Retinol Cream ($18, was $21; amazon.com), into their beauty routine. With brightening and tightening anti-aging powers, it's a bonafide skincare superhero, and it costs far less than similar alternatives.
The star active ingredient of Bloommy's moisturizer is retinol, which stimulates cell turnover and collagen production and makes your skin look smoother and plumper. It's also full of other hydrating and calming ingredients, including aloe vera gel, which soothes irritation, hyaluronic acid, which helps skin retain moisture, and vitamin E, which can block free radicals to keep skin looking younger. Additionally, it contains a few oils, including coconut, jojoba seed, and avocado, which give the moisturizer a silky feel without making skin greasy.
With both hydrating and anti-aging powers, Bloommy's moisturizer is so effective that some Amazon shoppers —and over 2,800 gave the product a perfect rating. For many, its magic lies in its ability to visibly brighten and tighten skin, all the while making it feel softer.
"I've been delighted each time I use this cream," one reviewer wrote. "It is gentle on my sensitive skin, firms and tones, and reduces wrinkles around my eyes and mouth. I am sold! My skin feels radiant and glowing."
Shoppers also love that the product fully absorbs into the skin without leaving a residue, and that it doesn't have a scent. Plus, its pump applicator makes it easy to get just the right amount of product, without having to dip your hand in a jar (keeping the moisturizer itself totally sanitary).
While retinol can be irritating to some people—especially those who haven't yet begun incorporating the ingredient into their routines—Amazon reviewers also note that Bloommy's moisturizer is gentle enough for those with sensitive skin to use, but still delivers results quickly. "After the first two weeks, my skin was not irritated and seemed to be improving," one shopper wrote. "After the first month, I could see a difference in the overall quality of my skin."
If you're still looking for your perfect anti-aging moisturizer, Bloommy's Collagen and Retinol Cream could be it—and with a limited-time coupon, you can nab it for less than $20. That's a serious skincare steal.
