St. Ives has done it again. Product after product they are continuing to help keep the world's skin firm, smooth and radiant. St. Ives Collagen Elastin Moisturizer is the most perfect facial moisturizer that I have found. Collagen is the main protein that makes up to about 25% of the total protein content. Elastin is the protein that is part of the tissue that allows the surrounding body tissues to resume their shape after stretching. And we all know that our face is full of so many types of tissues that having collagen and elastin working properly is important. St. Ives Collagen Elastin Moisturizer does just that. It does it in a way that you can actually feel the lotion working its way into your facial skin and loosening up the tissue. At first it feels like the lotion is very heavy and no matter how small of an amount you use it seems like it is drenching the skin in layers. But once it is thoroughly worked into the skin and the dampness of the lotion dries, you won't believe how amazing your skin will feel.
It has a soft scent and a cool feeling when it is applied. There is no harsh feeling when applying the lotion or any type of burning sensations. However, like all lotions, there is a possibility that it can cause irritation. One of the great things about this product is a little goes a long way. There is no greasy after feeling either, the lotion goes on smoothly. A 12 oz bottle will last for a very long time and it's inexpensive too. I normally buy my St. Ives products at Wal-Mart and this particular one runs about $4. And is a well worth $4.
