Skin Care 101 - St. Ives Collagen Elastin Moisturizer

by - July 22, 2013

Remember what I told you guys about, keeping our skin matte and dry will actually make it oily?  One piece of advice, if your toner or facial wash doesn't give you enough moisture, ditch it.  What you need is something that can hydrate your skin while fighting the excess shine.  A tough one really.  But, another solution to that, a very good moisturizer.

I'm done giving my skin a hard time.  Finally, I bought one.  I searched for something effective of course, and saw this product from St. Ives having many positive reviews.  :)

Its called Timeless Skin, Collagen Elastin Moisturizer.  It fights fine lines and wrinkles and the best part, the active ingredients are natural and organic.

Safflower seed oil works as emollient, trapping moisture in the skin.  It is also high in Vitamin E and antioxidants.

I got this for around 250 php.  Really affordable for its size!  I'm tempted to use this on my body too.  HIHI!  I apply a generous amount every night before bed, and a little after bath before applying makeup.

The consistency is just right, a little watery than the usual moisturizer.  The scent?  Its normal, same with a regular body lotion.

What I love about it:
  • Noticeable results after a few days - I felt the difference right away.  It really made my skin softer and smoother specially around the cheeks.
  • Affordable
  • Made of organic ingredients
  • Non-comedogenic - won't clog pores
  • No harmful ingredients
  • Does its job in keeping the skin hydrated
  • No irritating scent

What I don't like about it:
  • Packaging - not hygienic, a bottle/pump is better
  • No SPF - so you need to apply sunscreen
  • Doesn't dry out easily - this is the reason why I only use a very little amount before makeup
To solve the problem about packaging, here's what I did.

Tada!  I bought this small bottle and transferred some.  It's now handy and I can easily bring this when I travel.  Plus, my moisturizer will not be prone to bacteria.  No need to put my dirty fingers on the container.  HAHA!  

What do you think?

I can recommend this product specially if you don't want to spend so much for a moisturizer.  It works and its natural.
