We’re guilty of meandering through the skincare aisle, grabbing the first flashy packaging that catches our attention, and merely hoping the product is as effective as it is pretty. There’s a time and a place for that, but if you’d rather beeline for reliable, time-tested formulas, Amazon can be a goldmine. That’s thanks in part to a bevy of passionate reviewers and a foolproof, five-star rating system. Below, ten of the buzziest, best skincare to buy on amazon to date.
Best Skincare To Buy On Amazon
CosRX® Acne Pimple Master Patches
- The Original Pimple Patch: This 1st generation patch is loved by many over the years, due to its effectiveness. Highly raved in the media as well - a testimonial to its effectiveness.
- Quick & Easy Treatment: This A.D.F dressing hydrocolloid patch protects the concerned area effectively and creates a moist environment, which makes the healing process faster. Don’t squeeze or POP your pimples anymore! This patch will do it for you, without the PAIN!
The CosRX® Acne Pimple Master Patches ($5) are basically high tech zit cream… without any cream (and the potential for them smearing on your pillow). Rather, these little circular appliques stay put over zits, where they reduce redness, absorb fluid, and protect blemishes from additional bacteria. The packet contains three different sizes of stickers, so there’s no pimple too big (or too small) that can’t be conquered.
- BRIGHTEN AND REFINE: Lightweight eye gel works as a puffy eyes and dark circles treatment, blended to support collagen production, brighten dark circles and diminish fine lines & wrinkles
- MULTI-ACTION PEPTIDE BLEND: Advanced formula with Peptides & Silk Amino Acids to support elasticity, Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate and Plant Stem Cells for free radical defense, plus Cucumber & nature’s under eye brightener, Licorice, for brighter, firmer-looking skin
In the realm of skin-brightening ingredients, vitamin C is one of the most revered. Many serums containing the ingredient skew expensive, but this one from TruSkin Naturals® is a mere $20. What’s more, it’s laced with hydrating hyaluronic acid for an extra dose of glow.
Pro Eczema Soothing Moisturizer
- Gentle Skin Cream: Our Manuka-inspired cream is meticulously crafted to provide a comforting touch to dry skin, assisting in maintaining skin's moisture. With ingredients inspired by nature, this cream is also a choice for general skin care and after sun exposure.
- Suitable for All: Crafted for use by people of all ages, our gentle cream is designed to be versatile. It can be applied on various parts of the body, from face to feet, providing a nurturing experience.
Cetaphil® is one of the most beloved brands among dermatologists — and among Amazon shoppers — for good reason. The Pro Eczema Soothing Moisturizer ($16) is one of many of the brand’s ultra-calming lotions. Specifically, it contains moisture-attracting humectants and one percent colloidal oatmeal. This one has rave reviews, especially from people with eczema.
LilyAna Naturals® Retinol Cream Moisturizer
The first thing you’ll notice about the LilyAna Naturals® Retinol Cream Moisturizer ($20) is its adorable packaging. Use it over time, though, and you’ll notice significantly smoother skin. (Just ask the over 3,000 reviewers who swear by the stuff.)
Aztec Secret® Indian Healing Clay
- Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay is a deep pore cleansing facial, hair and body mask
- 100% Natural Calcium Bentonite Clay that’s great for facials, body wraps, clay baths, foot soaks, hair masks, chilled clay knee packs, insect bites & more
Most skincare fanatics would agree that Aztec Secret® Indian Healing Clay ($11) is one of (if not the top) cult classic product on Amazon. Many reviews hail this powder-to-clay formulas as their holy grail for clearing up acne and shrinking the appearance of pores. What’s more, a little bit goes a long way, so a single tub can last ages.
CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream Daily Face and Body Moisturizer for Dry Skin
- [ HYALURONIC ACID MOISTURIZER ] With hyaluronic acid, ceramides and MVE technology for 24 hour hydration. Rich, velvety texture that leaves skin feeling smooth, it is absorbed quickly for softened skin without greasy, sticky, feel.
- [ MOISTURIZER FOR DRY SKIN ] A deficiency of ceramides in skin can often be associated with dry skin, which can feel itchy and look flaky. CeraVe Moisturizing Cream is formulated with three essential ceramides & hyaluronic acid.
The CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream Daily Face and Body Moisturizer for Dry Skin ($9) makes a case for one-and-done skincare products. Post-shower, slather the ultra-soothing formula from head to toe for full-body softness, thanks to its barrier-protecting ceramides. (Just don’t forget to layer SPF on top!)
Neutrogena® Makeup Removing Wipes
- Twin pack of 25 count of soft, pre-moistened Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes to remove makeup and effectively cleanse skin in one easy step
- Makeup remover towelettes work to dissolve all traces of dirt, oil and makeup on skin, for superior cleansing and makeup removing power at your fingertips
Rifle through a few makeup artist’s kits and you’re bound to fish out a pack of Neutrogena® Makeup Removing Wipes ($7). According to elated reviewers (and Spotlyte editors alike), these cloths remove even the most stubborn eye makeup without stinging or leaving a greasy residue.
Aveeno® Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion with Soothing Oat

The Aveeno® Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion with Soothing Oat ($9) strikes the ultimate balance between nourishing and non-greasy. The star ingredient, colloidal oatmeal, is proven to soothe winter-stricken and/or eczema-prone skin. Used daily, it imparts a healthy-looking glow even on dry winter skin.
Aquaphor® Healing Ointment

Aquaphor® Healing Ointment ($12) may not be the luxurious product on Amazon, but it’s certainly one of the most popular (and nourishing!). In addition to protecting chapped lips against the elements, this ointment can also help seal minor cuts, burns, and cracked skin.
