    Pros: Great product. Good Price. Does (did) all I needed it to.
    Cons: New Formula has Fragrance that affects my allergies. Cannot use it anymore!

    Summary: This is the best lotion I have ever used. I have been using it for more years that I can count, actually 15 or more years, and it does everything I need it to. I use the pump for the hands frequently, and I use it for the overall body regularly or ... read more

    Pros: Preps skin for makeup, CHEAP, huge jar, feels great

    Pros: Inexpensive
    Cons: Too fragrant

    Summary: Finding a good moisturizer can be hard ordeal. There's so much to consider - ingredients, fragrance, price, etc. What actually made me try the St. Ives Collagen Elastin Essential Moisturizer was the fact that it had collagen in it, an ingredient that has ... read more

    Cons: None that I could think of.

    Sep 11, 2005 by

    Pros: Very Effective, Cheap Moisturizer From the Drugstore
    Cons: Runs when skin gets wet or sweaty

    Summary: Since this original version of this lotion came out about fifteen years ago, they have come out with an Extra Relief addition, but I like the original much better. This thick but greaseless moisturizer packs the right punch of natural elements found in ... read more

    Summary: I've been using this for about 2 years now. Along with the St. Ives Apricot scrub. The first time I saw this product...I was shocked at the price. It seems like a good sized package for only $2! And if you compare it to things like the new L'Oreal ... read more
