Brand Overview

Nourish Hyaluronic Moisture Boost Serum keeps things simple with just a few ingredients, the superstar of which is a high concentration of sodium hyaluronate. Sodium hyaluronate is the less expensive salt form of hyaluronic acid that does an impressive job of locking in moisture and plumping skin.

Suitable for all skin types, a little goes a long way with this lightweight, gelatinous serum dispensed via pump. Its fragrance-free formula works immediately to replenish dehydrated skin, delivering a supple sheen. The slippery texture leaves a slightly tacky feel at first but quickly dissipates to a soft, smooth finish that layers well with other products.

This formula isn’t robust in terms of offering multiple forms of hyaluronic acid (which target different layers of skin), antioxidants or other anti-aging ingredients, but it’s not claiming to either. Rather, it’s a cost-effective way to see what this form of hyaluronic acid can do for you.

  • Able to quickly hydrate and smooth skin.
  • Cost-effective way to see what hyaluronic acid (sodium hyaluronate) can do for your skin.
  • Fragrance free.
  • Not as robust as the top-rated hyaluronic acid serums.
Jar Packaging: No

Trader Joe’s is a California-based grocery chain best known for its eclectic mix of gourmet, organic, vegetarian, and staple food products, most sold under the Trader Joe’s name. Its stores are generally no-frills and utilitarian, with a focus on lower-priced products that are still of high quality.

That same low price, high quality philosophy informs the store’s house brand of personal hygiene products, including its skin care line. There isn’t a lot that’s flashy or innovative; rather the focus is on staples, with some skin-boosting products in the mix as well.

For the most part, Trader Joe’s gets it right, with basic but reliable ingredients. There are a few items that include fragrance ingredients (including a face wash and rose face mist that absolutely should be avoided), but overall, if you’re looking to pick up a does-what-it-says, stripped-down moisturizer while you’re out shopping for groceries, the options here are better than you might expect given their prices.
