  • "An awesome moisturizer for dry skin. It's very plain but I like that. It absorbs quickly and doesn't feel greasy at all. the cheapest moisturizer that actually works for me!! No it doesn't help wrinkles, but I don't believe in magic and neither should you!" in 213 reviews
  • "This is the best moisturizer I've found in this price range. It comes with so much product that last you for at least a year even if you use it every single day. It absorbs very well and doesn't break me out. However, it doesn't match up to its description about reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It honestly didn't do anything for my face other than moisturizing. The smell is very strong. And it could turn you into a grease ball if people with oily skin, like me, use it in the morning under makeup. But overall, it is very good for its price." in 209 reviews
  • "I LOVE this moisturizer. I looked for years for a light moisturizer that wouldn't make my face greasy, wouldn't cause breakouts, and would help fight wrinkles etc. I couldn't find anything until I heard Dr. Oz recommend this cream. I have zero complaints with it! It is light, makes my skin extremely soft, is safe to use around my eyes, doesn't clog my pores, and also lasts a long time. I bought one jar for $6 and it has lasted me 6+ months. The only negative is that it is hard to find in stores - I have only been able to find it at Walmart. I have sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts and this works great for me. " in 145 reviews
  • "Its so lightweight, great scent, and a little goes a long way so I can pretty much have a whole container for a year and it only like $5 or $6...YOU CANT BEAT THAT!!" in 7 reviews
  • "I use it every day after the shower and I have noticed my skin is very soft and the fine lines on my forehead are a lot less noticeable." in 6 reviews

I use this product all the time. You can use it all over your body, not just your face. It doesn't have a bunch of fancy ingredients in it so I'd recommend putting this in rotation with some other more potent moisturizers. This one is water based and does have collagen and elastin in it. It's just an all around good moisturizer that isn't too thick in consistency, has no fragrances, and is non-comedogenic. If you have another product that you're supposed to use in conjunction with a moisturizer, this is a good option. It's also great to use to moisturize your skin before putting on any face makeup. It creates a wonderful, soft base for other products to sit on top of. I've always been a big fan of St. Ives in general and this moisturizer definitely lived up to my expectations. I really wish they would bring back their shampoos and conditioners they used to make several years ago!

Review for: St. Ives Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer more...
Love love love this moisturizer! I’ve been in the market for a collagen or “anti-aging” moisturizer to reduce or prevent fine lines or wrinkles, and I stumbled upon this drug store gem!

- the price! It’s so affordable and you get an entire tub!
- it smells so good!
- not overly greasy or heavy
- effective for me so far in reducing any fine lines (but take this with a grain of salt from me since I don’t have too many fine lines just yet lol)
- leaves my skin feeling super moisturized!

- not super lightweight. I definitely wouldn’t be able to wear this moisturizer under make up, so I just use it as a night time moisturizer

Overall, I’d definitely purchase again! But one of these tubs lasts me forever, so not sure when the next time I’ll have to buy a new one is.

I bought this because one of my favorite IG makeup artists lathers this on to counteract aging! I like it a lot. It definitely has a very straightforward scent— like a generic lotion would have. And it stung a tiny bit when I first put it on (maybe that was just me). But overall I felt a noticeable difference the next day after slathering it on my face and neck before bed! I have sensitive, dry, acne-prone skin but this is noncomedogenic and I’ve never noticed it clog my pores at all. A lot of product comes in the tub so should last a long time. I hope it firms and tightens my skin but if not it’s a great non greasy moisturizer!

This is currently my favorite moisturizer!! I absolutely love it!! It's really rich and creamy but doesn't leave your face feeling greasy and wet. It's very affordable and a tub of this moisturizer will last you for months! I've been using it every night for several weeks now and I've noticed some small results in terms of reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Although given that I'm almost 20 years old, I don't have many fine lines besides my forehead. Paired with a good wrinkle-reducing serum, this product would be amazing for people with mature skin. It has a slight smell, but I find it to be very pleasant. Prior to finding this moisturizer I was using Ponds dry skin cream which is also a great option but it left my face feeling a bit more sticky and didn't absorb as quickly as this one. I highly recommend this product to everyone, regardless of age or skin type!!

I bought this after reading that it was one of the top rated collagen facial creams for youthful skin. It's been about a week or so and what I can say is it leaves my face feeling soft and looking refreshed. I also apply this on my neck and I have noticed that the skin on my neck looks more hydrated. I have combination skin and this does not make me feel or look greasy at all. My skin loves this stuff. It absorbs every ounce of it. It was under $7 at Rite Aid so it's very affordable. For the price you can't beat the quality that you're getting in this jar. It hydrates my skin so well under my makeup as well. I totally recommend is for all skin types. Influencers was not lying when they raided this as one of the top collagen creams for youthful skin. I put this on day and night.

Review for: Pack of 6 more...
I like to get the bigger bottles of these because it last me way longer it’s not harsh on my skin it makes my face super soft so I love using this like everyday to take my makeup off and etc. and to wash my face to make sure I don’t break out. I love that it has small little scrubs in it that’s what makes my fave so soft afterwards! This never disappointed me at all I tried every kind they have and they all work the same I never had any problems with this at all. I don’t like using other face cleaning products because all the others I have tried made me break out so I only use this and that’s it . But when you stop using it and you run out this products doesn’t make you me face break out after wards I had that happen to me with proactive and I will never use proactive again because it always made me break out and I didn’t like it

I swear by this brand and moisturizer! St. Ives Renewing Collagen Elastin Moisturizer works wonders if you religiously put it on every day. And that's after washing your face.

I am 40 years old and still get carded. No really, I do! I'm an advocate on eating well and skin care. Take care of your skin, because it's the only one you'll have.

Check out my Instagram page at and see for yourself. St. Ives Renewing Moisture will give you a youthful glow.

I absolutely love this stuff. I have oily acne prone sensitive skin. This is very lightweight and a little goes a long way. It is also non-comedogenic meaning it will not clog pores. I also moisturize while my face is wet and let it air dry. I do not use a toner and I was my face with cold water using Dessert Essence’s thoroughly clean face wash. My skin is softer and more glowy than normal. I am impressed.

I also use it on my body since it is non-comedogenic and I break out on my shoulders and back too.

Review for: Other more...
Upon an article I found on Allure beauty, I tried the St. Ives Renewing Collagen Elastin Moisturizer to help achieve a more youthful and glowing skin but I found this to not be my case.

My skin is very sensitive and if it doesn't like a product I am using, I will develop congestion on my forehead (my go-to sign that I need to switch something in my skin care regimen). I gave this moisturizer a try but three weeks later my forehead became congested and no I was not menstruating. I stopped using the lotion and went back to my go-to facial moisturizer (CeraVe) and my forehead is starting to clear up again. This helped prove my suspicion that this moisturizer was causing it.

I gave this product 4 stars still because I did appreciate how big the container was for the price that you pay. I am planning to keep this moisturizer and just use it for my body instead.

This product is so affordable and has great value, but it makes my skin rash out horribly. I really wanted to make this work for me due to it being in my price range but the formula just doesn’t work for me. I read the ingredients and i read it had mineral oil which is not the best thing to put on your skin. And unfortunately my body does not agree with it. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin or an allergy to mineral oil.

Does it dry quickly? Can you still feel it on your skin a couple minutes after applying it?

Can this be used on sensitive skin? I have heard such great things about this product, but I am always hesitant to try new products just because I have such breakout prone skin
