Let's start this review with busting an ages old beauty myth; oily skin doesn't need moisturizers, it already over produces more than required oil. The truth is, oily skin needs as much moisturizer as does any other skin type. As a matter of fact, when you don't apply a regular moisturizer, your skin glands start producing excess oil to compensate its absence. And the production of excess oil leads to enlarged pores, sebum production, acne and zits. So, if you want to enjoy a healthy looking, soft and smooth skin, add a daily moisturizer in your skin care routine as soon as possible.
I actually purchased St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer in the summers during the month of July. I wasn't sure if it would work for my combination to oily skin. My past experiences with different brands hadn't been good and majority of the lotions and moisturizing potions either irritated my skin or turned it very greasy. I have heard only good things about this product by St. Ives, so thought to give it a try.
The moisturizer is in form of a thick cream, housed in a huge tub. I have been using it every night since last 4-5 months and my skin has only gotten better. It's thick in consistency and takes its time to get absorbed. I use it as a night time moisturizer and wake up to hydrated happy skin every morning. I tried wearing it under my makeup, but it's too heavy to be used for that for oily skin. It's better to slather it on your face at night, and get some beauty sleep while it takes its time while sinking in. I can safely say that my hunt for a night time moisturizer has finally ended and I can see myself repurchasing it already.
