What the brand says: Strengthening your skin tissues, St Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin reduces fine lines and gives you a gorgeous look. Treat yourself to healthy looking and bright skin with this moisturizer that keeps skin smooth.
Enriched with collagen and elastin proteins and natural safflower seed oil, this moisturizer caters to the needs of mature skin and corrects flaws gently. This moisturizer provides optimum nourishment to your skin.
Packaging: The moisturizer comes in a sturdy huge tub with screw lid and is travel friendly if you are fine with the size.
Texture: The moisturizer is very lightweight and is like a thin cream that spreads readily and seeps into the skin.
Fragrance: The moisturizer has a very refreshing smell which I cannot really relate to anything but I love it!
How I use and staying power: Basically its a moisturizer that you can use on your face (I used it on my body too, works great!) like you would with any moisturizer. Just take a small amount on your palms, dot it on your face and massage. Follow with your makeup or let it be as it is.
I am not really a person who uses moisturizer all the time, only during winter when my skin feels dry. Ever since I got this moisturizer, I have been using it 24 hours irrespective of what season it is, quite literally. It feels amazing on the skin and does not make my skin oily even in hot humid summers. I have combination skin and my mom has dry skin, and we both are loving it. As you apply, it seeps into the skin after few seconds of massaging. I love to liberally apply it so I take a lot of product and massage for 2-3 minutes until it gets seeped into my skin leaving behind a soft glow which I love! Skin feels soft as heaven and it makes a great base for makeup! Makeup won’t look cakey or patchy nor would it make your skin oily later which is the best part. Skin feels so hydrated- you guys, no words can describe the amount of hydration it gives to my skin. This is the best moisturizer I have used so far, it makes my skin soft and plump and has definitely improved the texture of my skin in just few weeks. I am raving about this product ever since I got it and if you have oily skin, you ought to get this ASAP since this is the only moisturizer your skin would love, I feel!
