Shopping for the best Amazon skincare products isn't always easy, especially when the e-tailer stocks a plethora of brands. From the mainstream go-tos to the lesser-known cult brands, the options are endless.
In fact, Amazon has become somewhat of a saviour for us this year, as it has been an easy way to get all of our essential needs and wants in one place - like restocking the best moisturizers for dry skin.
Anyone who shops at Amazon knows that the website is a bit like a community. The review sections are full of real, thorough experiences (both good and bad) as people share their thoughts on the products they have tried and tested, leaving recommendations (or warnings) for one another.
One way to always tell a product is as great as it appears to be, is by looking at the amount of Amazon ratings and rave reviews it has received as it usually matches up. Some people even leave before and after pictures for that extra bit of reassurance. So with that in mind, we've selected some of the best Amazon skincare products on offer right now.
The best Amazon skincare products
There’s a reason why CeraVe products are so popular and it isn’t just because of their purse-friendly price tags - their products work magic. The brand’s Hydrating Cleanser has over 2,000 ratings on Amazon, most of which are five-star. Formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, the cleanser retains the skin’s moisture whilst removing dirt, oil and makeup, all while protecting the skin’s natural barriers.
This sheet mask is designed to rehydrate skin and reduce fine lines by reviving radiance and creating a glow. The mask, which you wear for just 15 minutes, is super nourishing as it contains milky serum with organic almond milk and hyaluronic acid. Plus, it gives immediate results according to its many rave reviews.
The No.1 selling scar and stretch mark treatment is renowned for improving the visibility of scars (old or new), stretch marks and uneven skin tones. How? Its formula combines a blend of Vitamins A and E, as well as plant extracts in an oil base that work together to help improve the skin’s texture and increase its elasticity.
This is Amazon’s number one bestselling lip balm, with over 10,700 ratings. Containing SPF15, it provides sun protection, moisture and nourishment no matter the weather. It’s great for keeping your lips soft and hydrated in the winter but also perfect for the summer as it is water resistant and the SPF infused formula won’t leave white marks on your lips.
Garnier's Micellar Cleansing Water is one of the most popular cleansers out there as it not only works as a great facial wash but an eye make-up remover. It cleans all dirt and pollution from the skin without stripping it of its natural radiance and glow.
With almost 5,000 top ratings, L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Day Cream has been praised for its ability to maintain youthful skin. Enriched with Pro-Retinol A and Elasti-Flex, its formula helps improve firmness on the skin and reduces the visibility of wrinkles in just a few weeks, according to reviews.
According to Amazon, this hyaluronic acid serum is among the best out there as results from a study revealed a 207% increase in skin hydration after 10 days for people who used it on a daily basis. If that wasn't enough, the formula also contains stabilised vitamins C & E, organic aloe vera, jojoba and geranium oil and green tea to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion has a five star rating on Amazon, much of which has to do with its power to moisturise for 24 hours straight, providing immediate and long-lasting relief for very dry, irritable skin. So if you suffer with dry skin, especially in the winter, this will be your new best friend.
We all need a good Vitamin C serum and judging by the top reviews Eclat's offering has received on Amazon, this is it. The nourishing product is formulated with the 20% vitamin C concentration (which is the scientifically optimal amount), Hyaluronic acid, ferulic acid, jojoba oil, MSM, retinol, aloe vera and vitamin E.
Pimple patches are an easy and effective way to target your spots and Dots For Spots has been hailed as one of the best. Each pack contains 24 stickers, all of which are translucent and super thin with tapered edges so they can seamlessly blend in with your skin. The cruelty free products should be worn for 6+ hours but you'll know when to take them off as the translucent centre turns opaque white.
