People With Dry Skin Credit This Hydrating Face Cream for Making Their Skin Look and Feel 'So Much Smoother'
Even if you don't follow a multi-step skincare routine, you probably at least have a moisturizer lingering around the house—especially if you have dry skin. A hydrating face cream helps relieve the uncomfortable itchiness and tightness that dry skin frequently causes, but when summer temperatures and humidity come around, an ultra-moisturizing cream can easily become too much of a good thing, feeling unbearably heavy on your skin instead of sinking in.
With hotter days around the corner, you might as well have a lightweight and fast-absorbing face cream that still provides ample hydration on standby. And one that reviewers can't stop praising is Three Ships Beauty's Radiance Grape Stem Cell + Squalane Face Cream. People with dry skin said in reviews that it feels light upon application, but fully absorbs "in minutes" and moisturizes incredibly well. It currently has a near-perfect rating from more than 200 reviewers.

Like any other skincare product worthy of your bathroom shelf, Three Ships Beauty's face cream has multiple benefits. It not only hydrates your skin, but it also protects your skin barrier with its key ingredient, squalane. Its namesake grape stem cell is an antioxidant that prevents free radical damage (which lead to typical photo-aging signs like wrinkles), while bark extract blend plumps up skin to make it look smoother. The face cream also has camellia, argan, and rosehip oils, as well as shea butter, so you know you're getting a real heap of hydration.
It's no wonder reviewers have called it their "favorite daily moisturizer." One wrote that their skin has become "more bouncy and clearer" since they started using Three Ships Beauty's face cream, noting that their acne-prone skin hasn't seen adverse effects to its rich moisture. Another shopper in their 50s said that it made their skin look "so much smoother and plumped" within a couple days of use; still more wrote that it soothes sensitive skin with rosacea.
It's simply "an essential," according to a different reviewer, who's also a fan of its sustainable production process. (Not only is the moisturizer vegan and cruelty-free, but Three Ships Beauty offers a transparent interactive map that shows you exactly where the ingredients comes from.) "My skin looks more even and 'awake' immediately after using," they said, adding that it's "not too oily and absorbs really quickly."
