As our skin ages, it lacks firmness and elasticity. The problems like dullness and lifelessness become common skin concern. It has been seen that our skin is made up of two basic tissue level constituents; Collagen and Elastin. The protein Collagen is responsible for the taut youthfulness of our skin while the component Elastin helps the skin to stay elastic. Aged skin gets deficient in these two and the result is definitely sagging and abandonment of wrinkles. Recently I crossed the bar of mid 20’s. My skin is not yet showing any visible degradation but still,

My Experience with Best Collagen Lotion | St Ives Body Lotion| Renewing Collagen & Elastin
Packaging- This lotion comes in a huge bottle with pump dispenser. The bottle is not at all travel-friendly and it is available only in one size. Certainly, no prior testing is possible; you would have to invest in this big bottle. The pump dispensing system, however, is very hygienic and easy to use. The packaging is in white and blue. The informative details are given in the back of the pack while the front side has a nice looking imagery of a glass made mortar-pestle.
Colour & Texture- The lotion inside is a light liquid of runny consistency. Its color is white. The consistency is very spread-able and it gets absorbed into the skin pretty fast. It does not feel greasy on the skin. The moisturizing power of this lotion is medium. It is basically targeted towards mature skin and mature skin tends to get dry easily. This lotion feels moisturizing for 4-5 hours but then you need to reapply if your skin is too dry.
Fragrance- The fragrance of this lotion is quite unique; it is difficult to find something else with a similar scent. There is a light herbal smell to it with a hint of cool aqua fragrance. The fragrance is on the lighter side and would not stay for long.
Experience- St Ives lotions are generally moderately moisturizing and light on the skin. This lotion is also blessed with similar qualities. It gives a very comfortable non-oily feel to the skin. My moderately dry skin gets its required nourishment and remains supple for 4-5 hours in extreme winter. Regular use of this lotion makes the skin softer and smoother to touch. If I follow my regular body exfoliation routine vigorously, it works even better. I have used the oatmeal & shea butter variant from St. Ives’ body lotion range. This one is comparatively thinner in the formula. This lotion does not irritate the skin; it soothes and heals the dryness. Though this lotion contains collagen and elastin, it does not make absurd claims regarding anti-aging. It claims to rejuvenate and restore the skin and certainly, it does so.
