Jennifer Garner credits her 'fresh and plump' skin to this $14 Neutrogena moisturizer

More than 3,300 Amazon shoppers are fans of the formula. Nab it for 30% off.

Jennifer Garner is so easy to like — and she makes looking young even easier. The 52-year-old actress may be beyond the days of 13 Going on 30, but she's keeping her skin tight. The secret behind her glowing skin? She says it's Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream Moisturizer and right now, you can get it for just $14 at Amazon.

"It's just so satisfying, you instantly see the difference," the actress said. This celeb-approved moisturizer aims to keep your skin hydrated for up to 48 hours.

Professional skin treatments like peels and fillers will set you back hundreds of dollars a pop, making even pricey moisturizers seem like a bargain. But Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream Moisturizer costs a mere $14 on sale, while other celebrity-beloved moisturizers can cost hundreds of dollars.

If the ageless Jennifer Garner gives a skin-care product her seal of approval, we sit up and listen. Garner has long been a fan of Neutrogena, so much so that she became an ambassador for the brand. In 2022, the actress shared with InStyle that Hydro Boost is one of her favorite products.

"I can instantly tell the difference — it just looks fresh and plump and better. There are all these little micro-lines that once I put this on, they go away," she said. "This is 48 hours of moisture that you're locking in with one thing, and then I don't have to worry about it. … I think it's my favorite product we've ever put out."

Hydro Boost's main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which binds water to the skin’s surface to help give you smoother, hydrated and more supple skin. The fast-acting gel moisturizer is also lightweight, oil-free and noncomedogenic, so it won't clog your pores (and it's especially good for oily skin).

Garner is far from Hydro Boost's only fan. More than 3,300 Amazon shoppers have given the moisturizer their five-star seal of approval. Reviewers rave that it works for all skin types and ages.

"I love this moisturizer," wrote one fan. "I have combination skin and this is rich but not heavy or oily. It’s a good dupe for the Clinique moisture bomb."

Another reviewer who gave it five stars said: "I have sensitive, combination skin, and this takes care of everything! The scent is barely noticeable but very fresh. Does not leave your skin feeling tacky, just baby-smooth. Does not take a lot to use. I love it!"

Other shoppers say it's not quite enough — in volume and composition.

"I love the silky hydration you get with this moisturizer. It melts in your fingers and feels so good on the skin," wrote one shopper, before adding: "My only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because I feel like it's missing something. I love the hyaluronic acid for my dry skin but I wish it had anti-aging or firming skin care ingredients as well ... But overall this is perfection for dry skin and still feels light."

Another shopper wrote: "I wish that there would be more gel cream in the container, but overall a great product."

This top-seller has racked up over 64,000 five-star ratings.
