Is there anything more brutally honest than the world of skin-care product reviews? Spending hours reading shoppers’ first-hand encounters with every formula under the sun remains one of the best ways to narrow down a shopping cart, but only one thing beats it: sales data.

Here, the top five hydrators shoppers can’t stop—and won’t stop—buying.

1 / 5

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% +B5 ($7)

Retailer: Ulta

Benefits: Ringing it at just under $7, this lightweight serum delivers a serious flood of moisture with its blend of low, medium and high molecular-weight hyaluronic acid.  

2 / 5

SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore 242 ($128)

3 / 5

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ ($28)

4 / 5

La Mer The Treatment Lotion ($155)

Retailer: Saks Fifth Avenue
