I don’t normally think of Trader Joe’s as a place to shop for my skincare so I was shocked and a to discover they sell their own brand of facial moisturizer on a recent grocery run. Actually, I’m a bit embarrassed that I haven’t noticed that they had their own line before last week. Even with a price tag of a mere $4.99 for the Regenerating Antioxidant Moisturizing Lotion I was a little skeptical about how well it would hydrate my face throughout the day. I should have know that this moisturizer is like the rest of the Trader Joe’s brand items: surprisingly high quality at a low, low price.
This moisturizer comes in a nice 4 oz. pump that dispenses just the right amount of product to cover the entire face and neck area. Infused with Vitamin C, this light moisturizer treats all sorts of skin issues from dehydration to fine lines and wrinkles. The texture of this moisturizer is very smooth and it absorbs quickly into the skin leaving just the right amount of hydration and oil control. Personally, I feel that this moisturizer is good for all skin types however, more mature skin may want something that is a little more emollient.
As for layering the moisturizer with other skin care products, it seemed not to have any adverse reactions to being combined with my serums and eye cream which was one of my big concerns. I hate it when you layer products only to have little balls of gunk form on your face as your products react to each other. My make up also goes on well over this lotion and leaves my skin soft and matte for at least 8 hours. I’m so glad to have discovered this moisturizer and will definitely be investing in more of the Trader Joe’s line of skincare.
