sometimes i ll have oily skin and when i do i use this. it defenitly works as a base for makeup and would recommend this to people with oily skin because this hydrates but doesnt produce alot of moisture/oils on your skin,therefor i think its a no no for dry skinned people.
I really, really wanted this to work because of the price and reviews, and it did, for about three days. In those three days my face looked fabulous - well moisturized and glowing - but then it all went south. Totally dried out my whole face, made me break out. I tried again about a week later but got the same results. Very disappointed. UPDATE: I decided to keep using it, mostly because I was too unsure as to what to replace it with. My skin's gotten used to it and it's not drying me out anymore, but it's still probably not the best fit for me. Still makes my skin glow though, so that's nice.
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!
