I've been a firm believer in St. Ives since I was a teenager. I started using the St. Ives Apricot Scrub two times a week in high school, and haven't looked back since. I had never used any of their other products when a friend of mine recommended this collagen skin moisturizer, after I told her I was searching for a substitute for my expensive night cream that I could no longer afford. I read through the reviews, and ordered a jar online. After a week of using it, I can honestly say that this is a great product that everyone should use. I put it on my face before I go to bed and when I wake up I have really moisturized skin. I only have to use a light moisturizer in the day time that doesn't clog up my pores.

The most important thing about this moisturizer though, is that it goes perfectly well with my tea tree oil that I use for my cystic acne. Basically, I start my skin regimen by washing my face with face wash and then twice a week I use my TreeActiv Anti Acne & Rosacea Treatment Sulfur Mask Plus Rhassoul, Bentonite Clay Mask with Witch Hazel & Aloe Vera - Refreshing Lemon Scent (1 Jar), and then use my extractor with the oil to attack problem areas on my face(by the way, TreeActiv+ Tea Tree Oil Acne Solution for Advanced Acne Treatment - All Natural Acne Spot Treatment - Blemishes Gone or Your Money Back! :this particular brand of tea tree oil face products are AMAZING). After this, I use the collagen skin moisturizer right before bed, and I've been waking up in the morning with really good looking skin, and I've been having less breakouts as well. I recommend this product to anyone who needs something ultra hydrating to wear at night, as well as to anyone who uses the tea tree oil products.

I've been using this product for probably 20 years, and I'm now 64. I wouldn't say it's a miracle potion, but my facial skin is mostly wrinkle-free and looks healthy--and I only apply it about every other day.

FYI, Unilever, one of the consumer product megacorps, now owns St. Ives, and this product has changed. I happen to have an old pre-Unilever jar which states the product is not tested on animals, but the other day, when I bought a new jar at a local pharmacy, I noticed that that claim was gone and there was a Unilever logo in the corner. So I emailed Unilever asking if the product had been tested on animals, and their response was a link to a web page that contained an awful lot of PR BS about how they're trying to evolve into a non-animal testing company, blah blah blah. But no specific information about this moisturizer was offered.

I compared the ingredients in the old jar to the new one, and I noticed that at least three of the natural ingredients are now missing and the order of ingredients has been shuffled. So for any of you who are experiencing skin irritation, there may be good reason for that. It's not the same product it used to be. Beware. I'm returning my jar to the store I bought it at and I'll be looking for an animal-kind moisturizer to replace it.

Please consider writing your representative in Congress to co-sponsor the Humane Cosmetics Act. The E.U., Israel, Norway, and India have already banned the inhumane and unscientific practice of animal testing on cosmetics. More accurate results can be obtained from human-based cell and tissue testing methods.

If you want more information on cruelty-free cosmetics, check out, on the NEAVS (New England Anti-Vivisection Society) website, the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC), which certifies more than 500 brands that do not test on animals. Another excellent source is Cruelty Free International, which is a global campaign to end animal testing (more information on NEAVS website). You can watch the video by Ricky Gervais and read about actor Peter Dinklage's association with this campaign.

And did you know that besides being unethical, animal testing produces severe environmental pollution? Find out the shocking facts on the NEAVS website under environmental campaigns.

Here's a listing of the ingredients in my pre-Unilever moisturizer. You can compare it to the Unilever ingredients (including the changed order) and make up your own mind about it:

Water
Mineral oil
Propylene glycol
PEG-100 stearate
Glycerol stearate
Stearic acid
Phenoxyethanol
Carthamus tinctorius (safflower seed) oil
Triethanolamine
Carbomer
Dimethicone
Cetyl alcohol
Disodium EDTA
Fragrance
Ethylhexylglycerin
Linalool
Hexyl cinnamol
Hydrolyzed elastin
Hydrolyzed collagen
Coumarin
Geraniol

Bought 1 at Walmart..first day: felt so good..tight and very smooth skin when I woke up.
Second day: felt good and smooth too but skin got little bit red.
Third day: my skin was peeling and getting extremely itchy accompanying with red spots which made me stopped and now after 2 days the itch and redness are still there. I did take some Cetirizine but it only works for few hours and the itch will soon come back.. Will update as time goes and I really hope my skin can be back to normal.

Not pleased that they have a new formula and are no longer animal friendly. They should be ashamed. Talk about a huge step backwards...
Also after using it for several months I started getting little bumps on my forehead and pimples between my eysbrows. The little bumps turned out to be blackheads and I'm still trying to clear my face up after not using it for a couple of weeks now. Never again.

I was really excited about trying this stuff, but honestly it's nothing special. I have combination skin that gets frequent clogged pores and occasional dry flaky skin around my nose. This basically seems like a hotel lotion they give you in those little bottles. Idk if it's diluted or what. After I put it on like a half hour later you can't even tell I put on any lotion. It's great that you get so much for the price, but you have to use a lot more to get the desired effect. I would continue using this for body/neck, but it's really not good enough for face if you are looking for a good facial moisturizer.

I bought two of these face creams for my grandma and we didn't notice that they both were expired 11/2013. please make you sure you check. I made the mistake of not checking on time and I went on a trip to NIcaragua to visit my grandma and that when I noticed that they both were already expired. it's annoying that i spend money and also it was a gift that she can not used because they were expired...

I have somewhat sensitive skin and cannot deal with many perfumes or fragrances. For such a great price I thought I would try this moisturizer. The container is much larger than I anticipated, so I started using it as an all over body moisturizer after I shower. My skin has never been so soft or looked so good.

I use this product all the time. My skin feel soft and hydrated without feeling oily or greasy. It was a great price on Amazon as opposed to what I pay at my local store, so I got a couple of jars for me and my daughter who also likes it.

I love this cream. I have spent 80% more on Clinique brands and other expensive moisturizers. This cream does the same as all of those. PLUS, because of the low cost I can use it on my whole body and not just my face!

Great stuff!! Nice, light moisturizer that has no greasy feel to it. Makes a great base for make up. It also has a nice light scent that you can enjoy while applying it but don't have to smell all day.
