1. A 4-In-1 Hydrating Cream That Has 5-Star Ratings From Almost 80 Percent Of Reviewers
"Definitely a Holy Grail product everyone needs to have," reads one Amazon review of this concentrated moisturizing cream — a cream that many other reviewers call the best moisturizer on the market. So, what exactly makes it different? Utilizing a combination of natural hydrators like shea butter, aloe vera, beeswax, and soy proteins, this gentle yet effective cream packs a real punch. Not only does it make an excellent face lotion for all skin types, but it can also be used as a creamy makeup remover and a post-shave skin soother.
2. A Powerful Skin Essence That Uses Snail Mucus To Protect And Hydrate Skin
The main ingredient in this revitalizing essence? Snail mucus.

Tea tree oil is naturally antibacterial, and thus can effectively disinfect pores while drying up pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads.
