St. Ives Renewing Collagen Elastin Advanced Body Moisturizer

This is just an OK, basic moisturizer,l. It hasn't done anything revolutionary for my skin, I see no visible improvement so I think the "collagen & elastin" claims is pure marking gimmicks and I fell for it. It is on the lighter side, I'd prefer something heavier, personally. But if you're aren't like me and aren't looking to be constantly slimy like a slug, I can see how this would be appealing to others who don't have extremely dry skin. It smells nice and clean, but it is strong, so something to be away of. I felt it left my skin a bit sticky and I still feel uncomfortably dry and itchy after applying at times. I do appreciate the classy packaging and convenient pump, and it's very affordable! I'll use it up, but probably won't repurchase.

Radiant Skin Pink Lemon & Mandarine Orange Scrub

The one I just purchased stated Radiant Skin but it goes under different names. I first tried their Apricot Scrub, but that was too harsh, and I don't want broken capillaries on my mature sensitive skin. So when I heard the Pink Lemon & Mandarin Scrub was the more gentle version I brought it. Well ultra gentle but probably TOO gentle as its ineffective - at least as an exfoliator. Its basically a moisturizing creamy cleanser with lots of tiny soft pieces in it that do not scrub. Strong fresh vaguely bitter grapefruit scent. It leaves a thick oily feeling film on the skin that moisturizes my skin, but also creates a layer that sticks down the surface layer of the skin. This means it doesn't release surface cells to smooth and polish skin, it makes them clump and clog together and makes my skin look dull. The exact opposite of a scrub. I recommend it as a daily cleanser for dry mature skin. But not sensitive skin as there is a lot of fragrance in it. I'm still looking for a cheap scrub. So far my favorites are Fresh Sugar Face Polish, or Ole's Pore-Balance Facial Sauna Scrub with AHA's. But they are pricey.
