Meet the Cult Favorite Serum from Trader Joe’s That Redditors Swear By

Trader Joe's is easily one of our favorite places in the world. (Where else can you grab $5 bottles of wine and $3 bags of stuffed gnocchi in one trip?) And as any TJ's fan knows, their beauty section is filled with hidden treasures, too.

One such gem is their Hyaluronic Moisture Boost Serum, which we found while doing some light reading on Reddit's Skincare Addiction thread. (#ThisIs30.) 

Formulated by top dermatologists, this lightweight serum contains only five ingredients (including 1 percent sodium hyaluronate and no added fragrance). Translation: If you're looking for an easy way to nix dry patches and plump up your complexion, give this guy a try. Or as one excited Redditor puts it, "OH MY GOD. My skin, in the last two days, has a new glow, bounce and clarity that it legit never has before. Ironically, it's the least expensive product in my routine. I'm legitimately shook and shocked." 

Got the serum. How should I use it? For oily or acne-prone skin, use the serum on its own, right after cleansing; if you're on the drier side, you can layer it underneath your regular moisturizer. Just make sure to apply it while your skin is still slightly damp to get maximum hydrating benefits. 

And if, for whatever reason, you're unsatisfied with the serum (or gnocchi), you can always get a full refund with receipt. No questions asked. TJ's = the happiest place on earth for adults.
