This is a very basic, but decent, body lotion for dry skin. It contains a standard roster of moisturizing ingredients and a teeny-tiny amount of the ingredients the company claims work to firm skin. This doesn’t deserve better than an average rating because it contains several fragrance chemicals known to cause irritation. Olay, Aveeno, and Dove offer better body lotions.

Don't simply hydrate, give your skin a little lift with this St. Ives Skin Firming Lotion. Featuring an exclusive Nutrifirm Complex of seaweed extracts, green algae and collagen & elastin proteins, it helps to visibly improve skin's elasticity and restore skin's firmness. This non-greasy, fast absorbing formula provides long-lasting moisturization while transforming your skin in 2 weeks to be visibly firmer, smoother and more toned. Apply daily for confidently healthy looking skin that you can dare to bare.

Water, Glycerin, Mineral Oil, Stearic Acid, Glycol Stearate, Petrolatum, Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Cetyl Alcohol, Triethanolamine, Dimethiconol, Cocoa Seed Butter, Stearamide Amp, Carbomer, Disodium-EDTA, Fragrance, Ethylhexylglycerin, Citronellol, Limonene, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf juice, Algae Extract, Linalool, Hexyl Cinnamal, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Amyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Benzoate, Geraniol, Hydrolyzed Elastin, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Rosemary Leaf Extract, Eleuthero Root Extract, Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract

Two things set this line apart in the minds of consumers familiar with the brand: the Swiss angle and their apricot face scrubs. This notoriety didn't translate to thoughtfully formulated products, though. Instead, most of the scrubs are too abrasive, and the apricot is simply there as an extract, never mind that in a scrub it doesn't have any significant benefit for skin. The same can be said of the selection of supposedly Swiss-based herbs. Most of them have soothing properties, but it doesn't matter to skin if the ingredients came from Switzerland or South Dakota. If anything, the whole Swiss angle is getting a bit tired. You can bet that there are no scientists working high in the Swiss alps to formulate these products. St. Ives is a line with very little worth considering, so feel free to breeze right by as you shop for skin-care products at your local drugstore.
