I've used tons of moisturizers of the years. I have "dehydrated" skin no matter how much liquid I consume. I don't say "dry" because it doesn't flake off. Anyhow, pretty much every moisturizer I've used has glycerin in it. I don't know if it's in small amounts, even if listed as the second or third ingredient. But almost none of them really worked great.
However, after introducing a 5-10% urea toner I made, my facial skin not only looks smoother and healthier, but is starting to appear that way even when not applied.
