I purchased this moisturiser a month back and not to forget I have some other body lotions too. 😛 I crave smooth skin and can guarantee that once a week scrubbing of the body skin and moisturising the body once or twice every day according to the time you can make gives you supple and soft skin, even toned complexion on the body, removes tan constantly, and not to forget gives you smoother tighter skin in the long run. I read some where that the aging process of our body starts at 25 and this is the right time for taking care of it with anti aging products that act to reverse the aging process( although how can one reverse aging?) but when I am keen on buying a product and blowing up my money, I supply myself with any possible reasons and justification for picking the product up and all the forces of nature will not be able to stop me from the plunge. These are symptoms of a compulsive disorder 🙁 God save women, but this gigantic bottle was bought by me in the hope that if I start using retinol and collagen based product from now on, it will definitely prevent my skin from sagging. All of us use body lotions as such, so why not opt for an advanced solution… because it will not take any extra effort to slather it on.
St Ives Collagen Elastin Body Moisturiser Price : 290 INR for enormous 532 ml( the bottle is taller than my laptop screen) This is more than half a litre of thick body lotion, so is worth every paise. You will have to shell out at least Rs 200 on any body lotion for 400 ml in any case. So this is good choice .
What the pack says: Advanced body moisturiser for younger looking skin, it contains moisturisers and the proteins naturally found in young, healthy skin. Discover the swiss secrets for visibly healthy skin. Only St Ives captures these secrets by combining collagen & elastin, in a moisture-rich formula proven to leave your skin healthy and younger looking. Clinically proven to show improved elasticity in skin for visibly, healthy and younger looking skin. It contains pure swiss glacier water too, so now you know why I picked it up.
How to use: Smooth on to skin as often as needed. Daily use will prevent over-dry skin from recurring. This product is not tested on animals.
- My body skin type is normal. The product is very thick in consistency. It spreads easily and has a herbal and vanilla mix scent.
- Just a single pump is enough for an entire leg or hand.
- It does not leave traces of oil although it will leave hands slightly moist after application as is the case with all moiusturisers.
- I had kept it near my kitchen sink for this review so that I can use it as often as possible. I have been using it on my hands also for quite some time and I feel my hands are brighter and smoother now. It leaves the body skin amazingly soft. It may take the same time to absorb just like any other body lotion and does not mention fast absorption anywhere owing to its thicker consistency I am guessing.
- The pump on top makes the dispensing extremely easy and less cumbersome as I do get lazy sometimes to use moisturisers for the body.
- A little goes a long way so this jar of 532 ml should last you for a minimum of 3 months if you use it twice.
- I guess it is meant for dry skin type and will show excellent results for normal to dry skin. People with greasy body skin can avoid this.
- I also plan to buy their collagen elastin bodywash and body polish to pair up with this for maximum benefit.
- It’s a great product for our moms who have slightly sagging skin on their arms. I am planning to give this bottle to my mom very soon.
Over all verdict: It definitely smoothens skin out leaving it supple. It is a great buy for people with normal to dry body skin types who are in their late twenties or more. Just replacing regular lotion with a one with collagen can make a huge difference. Give one to your mom for her hard working hands, and keep one at your bed side or close to your kitchen sink so that you can just use one pump for any time moisturisation. You will not forget that way! After I give this to my mom, I plan on buying Vaseline renewal age redefining body lotion with collagen & pro retinol. Hopefully should review that too so that it can help you decide which collagen body lotion to pick up.
