Keeping your skin fresh and hydrated is relatively easy these days with so many amazing moisturizers on the market. While it’s a good thing we have so many choices when it comes to moisturizing our skin, it also presents a challenge: How do we know which product to choose?

Jennifer Garner spoke to In Style and explained that the star of her skincare routine is a moisturizer you can find on Amazon right now for under $20.

“There are all these little micro-lines that once I put this on, they go away,” the Neutrogena ambassador told In Style. “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 can see why reviewers love it, I think it’s my favorite product we’ve ever put out.”

The product in question is the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream face moisturizer, and it’s racked up more than 33,000 five-star reviews on Amazon with users raving about its quick absorption and how soft it made their skin feel.

This moisturizer is a great option for those who are looking for something lightweight, as it has a gel-like in consistency and doesn’t contain pore-clogging ingredients.
