Jennifer Garner’s secret to ‘fresh and plump’ skin is $16 (over 40% off) for Black Friday

Jennifer Garner first rose to fame back in 2001 in the TV show Alias, but you would never guess that the 51-year-old actress has been in the public eye for over two decades just from looking at her. The secret behind her glowing, fresh-faced skin? Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Moisturizer — and luckily for you it’s on sale right now as part of Amazon's Black Friday deals for just $16, down from $27 — that's over 40% off.

This celeb-approved moisturizer keeps your skin hydrated for up to 48 hours.

Why is this a good Black Friday deal?

Professional skin treatments like peels and fillers will set you back hundreds of dollars a pop — unlike the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Moisturizer, which will cost you a mere $16 and nab you similar, Hollywood-endorsed results. And when it comes to other celeb-beloved moisturizers, which can range up to $100 or more for the luxury brands, you're netting a whopper of a savings with Neutrogena.

Why do I need it?

If the always-ageless Jennifer Garner gives a skincare product her seal of approval, we sit up and listen — obviously, she's doing something right! Jennifer has long been a fan of Neutrogena’s affordable yet effective products, so much so that she has been a longtime ambassador for the brand. Last year, the actress shared with InStyle magazine that the Hydro Boost Water Gel Moisturizer is one of her favorites.

“I can instantly tell the difference — it just looks fresh and plump and better. There are all these little micro-lines that once I put this on, they go away," she said. "This is 48 hours of moisture that you're locking in with one thing, and then I don't have to worry about it…I think it's my favorite product we've ever put out.”

It’s easy to see why Jennifer loves the moisturizer so much. Its main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which binds water to the skin’s surface to give you smoother, hydrated and more supple skin. Plus, the fast-acting gel moisturizer is lightweight, oil-free and non-comedogenic, so it won't clog your pores. Even better? It’s clinically proven to keep your skin hydrated for up to 48 hours.

What reviewers say

Jennifer isn’t the only fan. More than 66,000 verified Amazon shoppers have given the moisturizer their five-star seal of approval as well. Reviewers rave that it works on all skin types and ages!

“This is such an awesome moisturizer,” wrote one. “It feels cooling and luscious going on but immediately melts in and doesn't feel sticky or heavy. I have acne and hate when moisturizers feel greasy. This is perfect. One elderly friend refers to it as a miracle in a jar — her 90-year-old skin looks amazing. It works for my teenagers as well. It's awesome for all ages.”

Another reviewer who gave it five stars said: “Two words: Holy. Grail. I’ve been using this product for about six months and it is fabulous! I don’t like cream moisturizers because they feel too heavy on my skin, so I decided to try this gel blend. It is super lightweight and does not leave my skin feeling sticky at all. I’m fact, it makes my skin feel buttery soft! The hyaluronic acid in it adds a nice touch of brightening, as well. Highly recommend this if you’re looking for an everyday moisturizer!”

Normally skincare products with rave reviews like this and an A-list endorsement will set you back a pretty penny, but the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Moisturizer can be yours for a mere $16 right now.

This #1 bestseller has racked up more than 66,000 five-star ratings.
