I’ve been using Collin Skincare products for almost three years- the French line was first recommended to me by my facialist after a summer spa day.


GM Collin Paris was first launched in 1957 by a dermatologist in France. Their fabulous products soon began to gain recognition and crossed the pond. They are masters of tailoring various products for each skin type and each skin concern, whether it’s anti-aging or fighting blemishes.


I swear by the “Normal to Oily” line (that code is the blue semi circle) made up of their Oxygen Puractive Cleaning Gel, Acne Complex toner and the Puracne Oxygen Gel (which is just delicious, by the way.)


I’ve also used their grapefruit-smelling Intensive Exfoliating Gel in the shower, and loved it.


I’ve had my skin problems for years, ranging from major hormonal breakouts to pesky blackheads. When you’re a pale, freckled redhead, the sun is not always your friend. My skin is insanely sensitive so when I find something that works, I tend to stick with it for a while.

Unlike other skin care systems I’ve tried, like ProActive, the Collin line continues to work year after year. Better yet, the more I use it, the more it works! Sometimes I use the Garnier Exfoliator at night if I’ve had a heavy day of sweating or wore more makeup than usual, but I’ve found that if I use Collin at night and in the morning for several days, my skin thanks me.

Their products aren’t cheap, but they are worth every penny. Hey, an ounce of prevention…I’d rather spend my money on great skin care than expensive concealers! Collin has won countless awards for their bevy of products, and I still have more on my wish list to try!


I love this line so much that I even use them for my Tinted Moisturizing needs. On days when I just don’t feel like slathering on my Chanel foundation, I turn to their Tinted Mineral Sun Veil, complete with SPF 15.
