Doing Drugstore: St. Ives Collagen Elastin Body Moisturizer

I've been using St. Ives Collagen Elastin Advanced Body Moisturizer ($5.39) on and off for about a year now. When my precious Creme de Corps seems a bit heavy or if I am just not in the mood to use something that expensive when I know I am going to shower again later in the day, I turn to this creamy, sweet-smelling body lotion to make my scaly skin smooth.

I'm pretty particular about my body lotion and hand cream, and I think this one is tops. It penetrates quickly and leaves skin feeling soft and smooth, not waxy or oily. And when I say that it smells good, I'm not exaggerating. Think of slowly brewed tea made from chamomile, primrose, elder flower and sunflowers — that's what this lotion smells like. It's not over-the-top powerful, sweet or girly, it's just right. Apparently I am not alone in my affections. According to a press release from St. Ives, Collagen Elastin has been the brand's best-selling lotion for over 25 years! I really encourage you to try this if you are on the market for a new body cream. It's available in three sizes, including a travel size for 99 cents.

Thanks for this recommendation. I picked up the .99 trial size and I love it! It'll be an excellent go to for when I'm in between Sephora splurges.

I love St. Ives. I haven't tried this lotion yet, but I'm a big fan of their other stuff. I will have to pick up a bottle of this because my skin gets so dry!

I have that very bottle sitting on my desk right now! I started using it when I was a kid because my mom AND DAD LOVED IT! He works out in the cold a lot and has tried almost everything for chapped skin. This does the trick. Good stuff.

I bought a St. Ives body Oatmeal and Shea Butter body wash. It is AWESOME!!!! My skin is definitely less drier right after a shower. Plus is smells great. St. Ives is a great company and have really great products at great price points. I like to use their body scrub on my legs before I shave and I get the smoothest legs

I might just have to try this. I've been so dissatisfied with my body creams and lotions lately.

I've never chosen St. Ives when I've been in the market for a new lotion, but perhaps I will try this once all my butters, crémes, and lotions run out.

I love St Ives- I use this lotion every day. I think they don't do animal testing too, so that's another good point.

I haven't tried this one, but I've used some of their other lotions before. Pretty decent for drugstore.
