- As part of the Insider Reviews team, I often experiment with products to find what works best.
- Trader Joe’s Ultra Hydrating Gel Moisturizer has snuck its way into my everyday skincare regimen.
- Its key ingredients, glycerin and hyaluronic acid, make it favorable for sensitive skin like mine.
People can trust Trader Joe’s to deliver on unique food items like Everything But The Bagel seasoning, cookie butter, plant-based options, and stellar customer service that’s borderline-flirtatious. And, it often beats out mass-market grocery store prices by foregoing name brands.
It’s always great to have tried-and-true products without the high price tag, but that’s especially true when it comes to skincare. Enter Trader Joe’s best-kept secret: the Ultra Hydrating Gel Moisturizer.
