I decided to try this out because it is collagen infused. I also need a moisturizer for my face because medication dries me out. I'm not sure if it was hormonal or the product, but I did get a few zits. Right now it's sitting in my bathroom. Maybe I'll decide to use it again to see if that was what broke me out. Besides that, the lotion is moisturizing but I'm not sure how I feel about how dry and matte it gets instantly.
I have combo/oily skin and i've been looking for a moisturizer that doesn't dry out my skin but will instead make it feel soft. This is the one! I was using a Clearasil one for oily skin but that one was horrible and liquidy and left my skin with dry patches. I got this one at my grocery store for only 4$ !! I love the consistency and i love any moisturizer that comes in a tube which this one does. The tube is huge and you only need a little pea sized amount since it spreads really well. It feels kinda sticky when first applied but sinks in after a couple of seconds and feels amazing! Been using for a couple of weeks and it hasn't break me out at all and my skin is very sensitive. Will defenitly repurchase if it ever runs out.
I had high hopes for this moisturizer. Dr oz claimed it to be the best. Well for me it wasnt :/ It gave me no moisture at all! I put it on twice a day. I caked it on at night and even added olive oil to it. By morning my face was so dry again. It smells nice and it seems to be great quality, but it did nothing for me at all. My skin is not overly dry on normal occasions. And this also did not break me out. So maybe if you have oily skin this may good for you.
This isn't terrible but I don't see anything great about it. It doesn't do much at all for me but seems to work for a lot of people so I guess it is worth trying out. I get really bad dry patches in the winter and nothing ever solves that problem till the season changes. Even Vaseline doesn't do the job, it just sits over my dry patches. It is like my skin doesn't have the ability to absorb anything...I feel like I'm the only person that is like that...Any that was just something to read to tell you how dry and problematic my skin is. This moisturizer will probably work on someone that doesn't have a bad skin problem like me...sigh...
This broke me out pretty badly. I already have some acne, but this made it worse, so I stopped. I just use it on my legs, it makes them nice and soft, but I wouldn't buy it again.
I broke out from Cetaphil and eventually got clogged pores from Cerave (although I do love how light Cerave felt on my oily skin), so I was on a hunt for a minimal moisturizer that would hydrate my skin without making it oily. I tried a few before landing on this one, and I have no regrets. (It's super easy to find in almost all drugstores and supermarkets, and it's only $5!)
This lotion has the consistency of an opaque white gel, which made it easy to spread across my skin. It has a freshly-cut-leaf sort of smell (not really like aloe, but similar to it) which I like, but if you're sensitive to scents, keep that in mind. I'd say it gives intermediate hydration, more than a light hydrator like Cerave lotion but less than heavier ones like Aveeno's. I'm acne-prone and haven't had any breakouts after using this lotion for a few days, but as usual, YMMV. (The ingredients seem pretty harmless when I checked them in cosdna.com though.)
I am taking off a lippie because it came in a big, round tub, which is the most annoying and useless sort of packaging for a lotion. I'm planning on transferring it to travel-sized squeezey tubes so I can bring it with me on trips.
This moisturizer is amazing and cheap! I have hard time finding moisturizers to work with my skin so I'm always worried. This stuff doesn't break out my skin or leave it feeling oily! I only use at night though cause I can't really wear anything under my foundation. Plus the scent is nice light and refreshing sort of like aloe maybe. Such an amazing product for so cheap well done St Ives.
Am I the only one who had a bad experience with this product?!
I had high hopes for this moisturiser but I was sorely disappointed just 3 days after using it. I broke out on the 2nd day of usage (mind you, i only used this at night time and i used sparingly)! I was so disappointed! Now I only use this product on my body because it does have collagen and I didn't want it to go to waste. It's a pity, really.
I'm still on the search for the perfect moisturiser. Having a combination skin which breaks out occasionally can be such a pain!
This is my HG moisturizer. I haven't purchased another since I bought this one for $5 about 6 months ago. It doesn't contain SPF so I just use it at night, but by the morning my skin is really soft and appears dewy. This lotion has the smell of freshly cut leaves, but it's really lightly scented, which I like. My only complaint is the fact that it's in a tub. I would've preferred a container with a pump.
This product deserves so much more attention and love. This is by far the best facial moisturizer I have ever used, believe me ... I've tried plenty. I'm in my teens so most products break me out, feel goopy, or just irritate my skin. This one is light, cheap, but you can feel the moisture actually working on your skin. Depending on how much you put on, sometimes it'll feel heavy but once it sinks in my goodness it leaves your skin heavenly. I use it on my mom and meme's face sometimes and they both really like it too. There isn't much scent, it just smells clean which is good because I hate heavy fragrances near my face. I had moderate acne until maybe last year when I started consistently using burt's bees deep cleansing cream and then when I added this basically all my acne is gone, except around my period.
Firms up skin
Leaves skin soft and beautiful
Actually does reduce some appearance of wrinkles or lines
Creates a "more awake" look, or healthy glow
I guess just the packaging... make sure your hands are clean before using it so that you don't contaminate the rest of it.
