ST.Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Moisturizer | REVIEW | My FAV moisturizer of all time!!

The St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Moisturizer, (as it claims) is said to be formulated with collagen and elastin proteins which help to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by restoring collagen and elastin (naturally found in the skin).

Collagen and elastin proteins are broken down in the skin which is why we do need to restore it. This breakdown is caused exposure to ultraviolet-rays of the sun and aging. Agings causes the breakdown of collagen proteins which lead to thinner, less elastic skin, weaker connective tissues, wrinkles and other visible and non-visible signs of aging. At about the age of 20, the body actually loses the ability to make more collagen

Collagen is the second most common substance found in the human body. Strong connective tissues and healthy skin are produced by it. Collagen is a building block for all the body's systems as it forms a major part of the membranes surrounding and protecting internal organs and forms a major part of blood vessels, ligaments, tendons and bones.

Overall, it goes on great. The scent is not overpowering. Its very moisturizing! Excellent for dry skin. I LOOOOVE this foundation. Its very affordable. You get a lot for a small price.

On days when its really hot and humid, I will not wear this our else I will sweat very easily.

The only drawback to this is that it has no SPF protection.

Its a great buy. Try it!
