The best skincare routine can seem like the most tedious and expensive one. When targeting fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne, texture, and all of your skin qualms means adding another expensive product per issue, it’s easy to fall off the skincare bandwagon.

But there’s a best-selling cream on Amazon that thousands of reviewers swear by. Baebody Retinol Moisturizer eliminates the need for an extensive skincare routine, replacing both your morning and night creams in one lightweight moisturizer designed to target all your skincare woes, and it will only set you back $20.

Use this skincare hero in the morning before a layer of sunscreen, since retinol can make your skin more susceptible to sun damage, and at night with another customer favorite, the Baebody Eye Gel.

The ingredients

Instead of depending on one magic ingredient, Baebody Retinol Moisturizer uses a simple cocktail of trustworthy ingredients that work together to improve the overall appearance of your skin.

Main ingredients jojoba oil and argan oil are great for boosting hydration, while vitamin E adds a dose of antioxidant properties. Retinol minimizes acne and boosts skin turnover, removing dull, old skin and surfacing a bright, refreshed complexion. Finally, tea tree oil calms redness, inflammation, and reduces scarring, especially from acne.

Now, a look at the rave reviews.

Fine lines and wrinkles

One reviewer said she’s never gotten so many compliments on her skin in her life.

“I first purchased this moisturizer about six months ago, after reading the reviews,” one happy shopper raved. “I was looking for something to help ‘brighten’ my skin and decrease fine lines and some age spots. I didn't have real high hopes but I was very pleasantly surprised. I can't tell you how happy I've been with the results. I have purchased it again since and plan to continue to use it. I'm in my 40's and have never felt better about the appearance of my skin and I actually get compliments on its appearance! Baebody Retinol Moisturizer is the stuff of miracles!”

Discoloration and hyperpigmentation

Thousands of five-star reviewers swear by this product for discoloration. One writes, “My skin is awful. I'm 70 years old and spent my young and middle years on the beaches of SoCal, before anyone heard of sun screen. In fact, the darker your tan the better in those days. I no longer sun bathe, but I try to swim several times a week, and the chlorine is not kind to skin either. I have lots of brown spots, and lately I've developed some red flakey patches. I've been using this cream morning and night, and after one week there is a notable difference! The red patches are about 50 percent improved, and even the brown spots are starting to fade! I can't wait to see the improvement in a month. Highly recommended.”


From large pores to bumpy skin, this moisturizer seems to be a cure-all. “I can definitely tell that my skin is tightening up and pores are smaller. This is a great facial moisturizer and I have seen results in 10 days. After 3 or 4 days I could tell my face looked healthier and it definitely felt healthier,” one reviewer writes.

“Baebody Retinol Moisturizer is simply the best moisturizer I have ever used,” one shopper raved. “My skin feels and looks amazing! I have been using this product for about 3 weeks and there is such a difference in the texture and elasticity of my skin. I can't wait to see what my skin is going to look like after 90 days! Baebody Retinol Moisturizer will now be my go-to!! I highly recommend!!”

One reviewer ordered the moisturizer after she noticed two empty containers of it in her neighbor’s trash. “I know this sounds crazy, but I figured that it had to be good if she ordered two of them. ... She can most likely afford expensive creams, but she uses this, so I thought I should give it a try,” the five-star reviewer wrote.

The verdict?

“I absolutely love this cream! It makes my skin feel smooth, firm, and very hydrated. I love how it doesn't make my face burn or sting like other retinol products. It's great for both day and night, and also around my sensitive eye area. I used to spend more for face cream, but it really isn't necessary when I can get results with a reasonably priced product. I’m so glad I noticed the trash that day!”

Bottom line

Reviewers tend to agree: the only regret is not finding this product earlier.

“After using my Lancome products for several years I began to wonder what exactly was I paying for, and began to look for something different,” one shopper shared.

“I did not know what to expect from a much more affordable product and was pleasantly surprised at the difference I saw after using it just a few times.”

The reviewer tried the moisturizer with Baebody Eye Gel and says she will purchase both again.

Added bonus: a little goes a long way. “I believe it lasted me about 4-5 months, which, considering the size, was waaay longer than I had anticipated. I ran out a while ago and just made another order — I don’t feel the same without it now!”
