GM Collin: luxe targeted skincare you can travel with

When traveling, one's choices as to portable skincare used to be quite limited, especially after 3-1-1 carry-on travel bags were implemented worldwide. And yet, "anti-aging" really concerns a vast array of skincare needs -- one size does not fit all! That's why I was happy to be hosted to experience GM Collin!

It began as a French company in 1957, founded by a dermatologist who pioneered the use of collagen pellicles and a renowned experienced aesthetician. Since the early 1990s, G.M. Collin has been developed and manufactured by Dermo-Cosmetik Laboratories, a Montreal-based company that has adapted the products, enhancing its dermo-corrective capacity to suit the North American climate and way of life. That's very interesting and fortunate for all of us living in North America!

Certainly with active, outdoor-loving lifestyles, our skin is exposed to lots of environmental damage. VITAL C 10% + PEPTIDES SERUM is cased in a light-protective pump container, sized appropriately for 3-1-1 carry-on travel bags. The slight citrus-scented liquid dispenses as a thin serum that instantly spreads and dries to a satin finish. It will not have an impact on your ability to apply any texture of cosmetics. Unlike some Vitamin C products, I did not find it irritating, nor did it cause a typical "flush". Here's what they say about it:

This vaccine-like serum contains a synergistic combination of powerful antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients providing a global protection, to immunize skin against time, protect against environmental damage and reduce the visible signs of premature aging.

• Neutralizes free radicals, defends against environmental damages and stimulates collagen synthesis to minimize wrinkles (10% Vitamin C)

• Helps the skin build its own anti-aging defense system, promotes detoxification, tissue regeneration, and cell longevity

• Helps limit UV-induced DNA damage and boosts the skin’s defenses against environmental stressors

• Diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines

• Activates the cutaneous repair process, minimizes wrinkles and improves elasticity

Maybe your skin enemy is time and what my mom calls, "your birthday gift" (your genes). Lines, wrinkles . . . whatever you want to call those grooves, they make you look older! Forehead and nasolabial folds change your entire appearance. But who wants to get risky injections? GF ADVANCED REPAIR SERUM is a creme-gel that comes in a plastic pump container, perfect for 3-1-1 carry-on travel bags. No down time! With it's very slight floral scent, it spreads easily and dries instantly on the complexion, to a soft matte finish. It will not affect makeup application; some wrinkle serums are too gooey to apply anything on top. Here's what they say about it:

Discover an innovation inspired by the science of genes.

A scientific breakthrough delivering advanced peptides and proteins to:

Refine the skin's surface

Hydrate and help delay the visible signs of aging

Helps to promote the revitalization of the skin

Improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines

Better skin in one month! That's exactly what the science shows you can expect from A.G.E. TOTAL DEFENCE moisturizer. A pump container that fits into a 3-1-1 carry-on travel bag, it has 8 antioxidants and 5 peptides. A lotion texture, it takes just a minute to dry. It leaves skin instantly soft. Here's what they say about it:
