My skin is very finicky, and I’ve had years and years of trial and error to determine which skincare to use. When I’m traveling, sometimes it’s just too difficult to carry around my regular skincare routine! GM Collin Paris made it easy with this Normalizing Travel Kit. Featuring 3 skincare items, the Oxygen PurActive+ Mild Cleansing Gel (50mL), Oxygen PurActive+ Treating Mist (50mL) and Oxygen PurActive+ Cream (15mL). Combining these skincare items help to normalize oily skin.
I used these products exclusively for about a month and found that using it every day really helped to regulate my skin. The Oxygen PurActive+ Mild Cleansing Gel really is just that, mild! It has a mild citrus scent that’s reminiscent to me of Sprite or 7Up. The gel doesn’t strip my skin or give it that tightness feeling after cleansing. According to GM Collin Paris, the Oxygen PurActive+ Mild Cleansing Gel removes excess sebum, skin impurities and make-up. Additionally, it purifies, brightens the complexion as well as tightens the pores. I didn’t use this gel to remove makeup, but I used it on all other skin impurities which the gel whisked away effortlessly.
After cleansing, I use the Oxygen PurActive+ Treating Mist to tighten and tone the skin to prepare it for moisturizer. Said to soothe and refresh the skin, the Treating Mist is paraben free and made in Canada. This mist doesn’t have a particularly pleasant scent to me, but it’s a refreshing mist to use day or night. GM Collin says the mist evens the complexion for a smooth and matte finish and additionally helps maximize skin care benefits. While I didn’t see an even complexion after use, (my skin is always red!) my skin is definitely more matte than if I don’t use the mist. It’s a necessity in my books!
The last part of the skincare treatment is the Oxygen PurActive+ Cream! This formulation is said to purify, hydrate as well as mattify the skin all day long while also giving new radiance and refining the skin’s texture. I was surprised to see that the cream in this kit was significantly smaller than the other 2 products! At 15mL, I wasn’t sure how long it was going to last me. Thankfully, it lasted me the month but I have significantly finished the cream more than the other 2 products in the kit. This cream helps to mattify while also giving much needed moisture to the skin. I haven’t noticed a significant difference in my skin’s texture, but I have noticed that I’m much more matte as well as less red in the morning after using these products.
Overall, I love that these products help to keep my oily skin at bay. Although I hear that oily skin is good for warding off wrinkles, it’s a pain when wearing makeup as it never seems to stay in place! I’m glad that I was able to get my hands on GM Collin skincare as it has helped refine my skincare routine!
