    This is one of those products that have been around for as long as i remember. It works just fine, is affordable and is sold just about everywhere you already shop. You can't go wrong!

    This is a very affordable moisturizer that works very well! I have combination/ oily skin and have a hard time finding a moisturizer that I can wear without feeling greasy and gross and I didn't have any of those problems with is one. You get a lot of product for your buck and you don't need to apply a lot. So it will last you forever ! Made my skin very soft and smooth. My skins appearance overall improved. It looked a lot more refreshed and evened out the redness around my cheeks and chin where i'm always red. It plumps up your skin to make you appear younger looking. Would def recommend this product to anyone with aging skin or just needs an overall good moisturizer.

    I picked up this collagen elastin facial moisturizer today while at SDM, along with a few other St. Ives products, as they were all on sale for $3.99. Score!

    I had an extended and multi-treatment skincare routine tonight which included the St. Ives mineral clay firming mask (reviewed separately), a deep exfoliation and several other products. I ended my facial with a spritz of Vichy mineral water spray followed by this product.

    I have to say that St. Ives seems to be really stepping up their game with some new products. I've tried many in the past and a few recently and the difference is noticeable both in effectiveness and packaging.

    Let's talk about the packaging first. Modern! Finally, a fresh new look for St. Ives, which seems to have been around forever. It's GOOD to spruce up a typically dull, boring, looks like every other moisturizer tube/lotion/jar around product to give it a little more color and pizzazz and bring it into the present. Now the products are more eye catching and seem to have a targeted product line with the "Timeless Skin" tag line. It's about time, St. Ives, and it looks good on you!

    Now a bit about the lotion itself. The formula seems different than their typical lotions. Whether it's the collagen / elastin component that makes the texture different or if this is an across the board formula change, I'm not sure, but again, it's a good change. I'm actually excited about this! It looks and feels more elegant and modern and now I feel it competes with other, similar brands such as Vaseline and possibly Aveeno.

    So given that tonight is my first experience with the Timeless Skin line, my review may not be as in depth as usual. I usually like to try a product for at least a week before I rush to any verdict, so I may edit later.

    After I completed my cleansing, exfoliating, mineral mask, facial oil, vitamin c spray, plumping serum, wrinkle spot serum, spot acne treatment, eye treatment and a watery, hydrating, replenishing nighttime moisturizer (and dry times inbetween). I spritzed my face with mineral water and allowed the excess to dry / evaporate. I then applied the collagen / elastin moisturizer. Some may feel this is overkill, but I am really into skincare, especially the face and neck areas, and I really want to take the best care of my skin as possible. My 40's are creeping up on me and I want to have beautiful, clear skin as I age.

    With the St. Ives, I placed a strong focus on the neck and decolletage as I am getting lines on my neck and dryness in those areas. I also patted some into the entire facial area, concentrating on my smile lines, fine lines around my eyes and an annoying horizontal line across my forehead from scrunching up my face (mental note: stop scrunching up face!). This moisturizer is really thick and a little goes a long way. It's also a bit sticky, but with the mineral water spray beforehand, it made it easier to pat the product into the skin. I don't rub, that just erases the previous treatments. I find gently but firmly patting in thicker creams with your fingers or a damp beauty blender is more beneficial and allows the product to sink into the skin instead of just layering on top. In my opinion, this really helps the product work it's magic.

    Immediately after applying, my skin felt tighter. But tighter in a good way, like it was firming up the looser areas in my skin and making it supple yet toned looking. Along the jawline especially, I felt that it firmed up that area and made my jawline look more defined and less saggy. I have the beginnings of the dreaded double chin and this product helped firm up that area too. I'm really excited when products seem to make a difference right away, and I feel like this lotion did that.

    I'm going to continue to incorporate this into my daily routine for the next week or so and see if any of these results become permanent or at least are long lasting. Maybe this is wishful thinking on my part, but I am hopeful since I felt and noticed a visible difference immediately after one application.

    Right now, about 1 hour after application, my face and neck feel pretty great. I'm moisturized, ultra hydrated and feeling firmed up in my problem areas all at the same time.

    Overall, I have to give this major props for feeling instant and noticable results. Now that I've tried it I can say that it's worth paying full price.

    Tomorrow I intend to try it again with a less intense routine and really let the product shine on its own after cleansing. I'm looking forward to seeing what continued use is going to do to my skin. I have high hopes with this one! I highly recommend giving it a try if you want to see some instant firming and moisturizing results.

    Congratulations St. Ives on launching an upgrade in product and for holding onto some classics!

    The price was right for this product. When I see "Collagen Elastin" on something I assume its going to help tighten my skin or do something interesting. This product left my skin feeling very oily and greasy. Not impressed

    I use this stuff all of the time. I have really dry skin and this stuff works amazing for me. My face can be sensitive to lotions and make it red and irritated. This stuff does not seem to have that effect on me. I will definitely be purchasing this product again once I am all out.

    When I was able to use this product it felt amazing on the skin, you didn't need a whole lot of the product a little went a long way and the only reason I stopped using it is becasue as I got older I needed something more for acne.

    I have very sensitive skin. A lot of products cause break outs or redness to my skin. This one has not. I usually wash my face before bed and my face feels so fresh and clean. I do notice it to be a tiny bit greasy though.

    Love this product. I have very dry skin and very sensitive skin and when I used St. Ives I didn't react at all to it. It makes my skin feel great without feeling like there is a coating on my skin. What a wonderful product.

    I found this product to be similar to the collagen elastin body lotion - it does leave skin feeling and looking great however was a little greasy to use and put on, and I could only use a little bit otherwise my makeup would not apply properly. Not a bad product but I wouldnt purchase again.

    I have very dry, slightly sensitive skin, so I thought that this moisturizer would be great. After washing my face, I applied this after towel drying. I personally found that my face felt like 1 million bucks ready to hit the town.

    Id highly recommend.
