    “Hyaluronic acid is the best and strongest moisturizing ingredient” this ingredient costed me a lot of money and didn’t do anything beneficial or noticable.
    I have eczema and in winter i strongly need to use a potent moisture or a corticosteroid drug for it. The only moisturizer that helped me was petrolatum based lotion with %20 Glycerin. It is not aesthetically pleasant but it workes and you can feel the moisturizing benefits from first use.
