What's one thing Hailey Bieber, Priyanka Chopra, and Victoria Beckham have in common? Their glowy, radiant complexions, of course — and they all credit one pricey beauty product as their secret sauce to baby-smooth skin: Augustinus Bader's The Cream.

Celebrities can obviously afford expensive facials, treatments, and plastic surgery, but there is some science behind the skin-plumping, wrinkle-smoothing effects of this Hollywood-loved moisturizer. The Cream was developed by German professor Augustinus Bader based on decades of research around regenerative tissue.

It's packed with nourishing amino acids and vitamins that have been clinically shown to hydrate, brighten, and regenerate skin cells. But the star feature of the celeb-backed moisturizer is its TFC8 complex, which the brand claims repairs damaged cells using a mix of ceramides, peptides, amino acids, vitamins C and A, and cholesterol. Also included in the complex is TFC1, a medical-grade hydrogel, which Bader created to treat the skin of burn victims after three decades of research.

Sephora shoppers are calling The Cream a "miracle product" for how well it works to smooth fine lines and eliminate dark spots. "It actually lives up to the hype," one Sephora reviewer said. "I saw a noticeable difference… I have never been this impressed by a skincare product before in my life, and I have tried a lot."

"On the first day, I noticed an immediate improvement in my skin texture, lines, [and] smoothness," another shopper added. "My skin has never looked better. My face was plumped and even-toned." Another person added that it's been "life-changing" for improving their hormonal acne. "I am prone to breakouts and they have decreased dramatically," they said.

The moisturizer's formula is a lighter version of the brand's famous Rich Cream, making it a non-sticky alternative for summer. Packed with hyaluronic acid and completely vegan ingredients, it likewise boasts famous fans; Jennifer Aniston applies The Rich Cream before filming The Morning Show and supermodel Karen Elson said it was her "secret elixir" for radiant skin. InStyle beauty editors Pia Velasco and Erin Lukas swear by the brand, too; with instant results, it's no wonder why.
