Review: St. Ives Skin Renewing Body Lotion

This should have been posted before we left for Palawan but I wasn’t able to finish the review so I decided to post it now instead.

While out to buy a bottle of Jergens lotion, the display of St. Ives lotions caught my attention once again. So instead of buying what I initially planned to buy, I decided to go for this product this time. If you are regular reader of my blog, you might have read my review of another variant, the

Is this variant any better than the other? Find out...

Product Description:


Packaging and Appeal. The packaging of this variant is the same as others, rectangular white plastic bottle with slim pump. The label is nothing too fancy either.

The product itself is a typical lotion with just right consistency. It is not as thin or watery as Nivea Milk or as thick as Nivea Creme hence application is a breeze. You never have to rub it to your skin vigorously to even out the application.

Effectiveness. This product claims to improve the skin’s elasticity as well as moisturize dry skin all day long. As what I have experienced, this product is being true to its claims indeed. Applying once everyday can do the work in keeping the skin moisturized. I never have to reapply throughout the day to get rid of dry skin except of course after I use dishwashing paste on my hands. As to the elasticity claim, I cannot be too sure since my skin has been the same as before. My skin is far far away from perfect but I didn’t have problem regarding skin elasticity before using this.

Scent. This variant smells… uhm… fresh! It isn’t too sweet or fruity.


Price. One reason why I got this product is its price. The 621 ml bottle costs around Php 250 and for me it’s a great buy.

Availability. This lotion is available in various department stores nationwide.

Would I buy this product again?

If your skin do not need any special treatment (like extra dry skin, scaly skin, etc), then you may want to consider this body lotion. It’s good, it’s affordable… you can never ask for more. :D
