Lisa Rinna swears by this hydrating CeraVe serum to keep her skin flawless at 60 — and it's just $16 at Amazon

Actress, host and reality-TV icon Lisa Rinna has been gracing television screens since the early 90s, when she exploded into soap stardom with her turn on Days of Our Lives. Since then, she's pretty much always been in front of the camera — and has clearly figured out how to keep her mature skin looking lovely without spending boatloads of $$ doing so. The secret? CeraVe Hyaluronic Acid Serum, which she credits as a big part of her beauty routine. You can snag it right now on Amazon for just $16 (down from $23), a sweet savings of over 30% off.

The star of CeraVe's formula is hyaluronic acid, which helps to hydrate and plump tired, aging skin.

Why is this a good deal?

We all know that celebs' famous faces aren't cheap to maintain — and, in fact, many celebrity-beloved beauty products and brands can range into the hundreds of dollars, especially when it comes to skin-care items. Comparatively, $16 for a bottle of CeraVe Hyaluronic Acid Serum is peanuts, especially when it helps work to make your skin smooth as butter ... and even more especially when that price represents a 30% markdown.

Why do I need this?

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna knows a thing or two about looking camera-ready — and she credits this CeraVe serum with helping achieve soft-focus-vibes skin. In a recent Amazon livestream, the actress shared her thoughts on the perfect skin-care routine. "I think it’s so important to find the right products for your skin and it took me a long time," Rinna said. “I think as I’ve got older, my skin has gotten better." And a major part of that, she says, is because of her use of hyaluronic acid. "I could bathe in hyaluronic acid," the soap star joked, holding up a bottle of CeraVe Hyaluronic Acid Serum. "This is hydrating hyaluronic acid serum; this is from CeraVe. This is lovely."

Hyaluronic acid is known as an important ingredient in infusing and retaining a much-needed dose of moisture, making it a godsend for dry, dehydrated skin. It can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, locking in moisture deep in your pores. It can also help stave off signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles and a dull complexion, and help leave skin with a more plump and youthful appearance. CeraVe's serum contains that skincare-favorite ingredient, as well as soothing Vitamin B5 and three essential ceramides, which help to restore and maintain the skin barrier. All in all, it makes for one 'dermis-loving concoction!

What reviewers say

Thousands upon thousands of Amazon reviewers have given the CeraVe Hyaluronic Acid Serum a perfect five-star rating — thanks, they say, for the way it leaves their skin looking flawless.

"I’ve been using this for about six months or more now and have bought it multiple times," noted one user. "It lasts a long time. Goes on smoothly and absorbs quickly. No strong fragrance. Feels nice. Most importantly, my skin looks and feels better than it ever has. Smaller pores, less blemishes, less redness — generally healthier."

Older reviewers love how it makes their mature skin feel: "I had oily skin as a teenager and younger adult, but now that I'm in my 60s, my skin is much dryer," shared one. "Using regular moisturizers, however, is too much, because every one I've tried makes my skin break out. This serum keeps my face from feeling tight and dry without overdoing it and causing the breakouts. I've tried other serums before and they are usually clear and a little slimy. This serum is creamy, which I like better, and I love that it's unscented." A fellow fan added, "This a miracle in a bottle for 70-plus-year-old skin beginning to look dull, droopy and wrinkly. Gently massaged in for a week now, and my skin already looks plumper and less tired. Great stuff."

Due to the inclusion of hyaluronic acid, which can cause a slight reaction in some first-time users, one shopper wrote that "I have highly sensitive skin, [and] it did make my face slightly red at first," but also added, "It does seem to make my skin glow somewhat and look more nourished."

'This is lovely,' Rinna said of her skincare go-to.
