Vacation skincare | The Oolala Collection Mini SkinESSENTIALS Jetsetter kit

by | Nov 28, 2018 | Clean Beauty, Things we love | 1 comment

Taking care of our skin has been a top priorities this year and with the help of the Oolala Collection we are learning how. I’ll be the first to confess that sticking to a good skincare routine, especially while on vacation can be hard. The Oolala Collection Mini SkinESSENTIALS Jetsetter kits are aimed at making things easier for him and her. We got to try both these kits during our recent trip to Greece and this is what we think…

Basics about the kits:

There are 2 Mini SkinESSENTIALS Jetsetter kits available. One for him and one for her. Each are targeted to the specific needs of the male and female skin. The products included are all sized for flying and come in a cute little travel bag. Simply pop these into your hand luggage. Both retail for under a R700 and contains about a 1 month’s supply of skincare products.

Every set contains:

  • A 2-in-1 deep facial cleanser with alcohol-free toner
  • 1 Gentle apricot kernel scrub
  • A colloidal Silt Ultra Mud Mask
  • 1 Daily moisturiser with SPF15
  • An active night moisturiser
My thought on these…

Although the cleansing milk remains one of my favourite skincare products, I found the 2-in-1 deep facial cleanser with toner handy. It’s great for when you want to save time, replacing 2 products with one. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and clean.

It was also the first time I used the apricot kernel scrub. What a lovely exfoliator. The crushed apricot kernels gently remove dead skin cells and left my skin feeling super soft and plump. Using it twice a week has definitely had a brightening effect on my complexion.

Next, the colloidal silt mud mask. This I’ve been using for a while. It might not have the best smell but I really enjoy the benefits of this mask and even have Mr. Perfect joining me for weekly mask sessions. The benefits of using this mask regularly includes long-lasting moisturising, firming, helping to even out skin-tone while targeting problem areas such as dryness and acne. My skin feels pampered and restored after using this mask and Mr. Perfect agrees.

Lastly the kit includes a daytime and night time moisturiser. Using a day moisturiser with an SPF of at least 15 is a MUST! I especially like that this moisturiser is light and non-greasy. It’s perfect for applying before makeup and ensures my face and neck is nourished and protected from the sun. It also helps to repair and restore the signs of ageing. It minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles too and gives my skin a healthy glow.

The active night moisturiser repairs my skin while I sleep providing long-term moisturising and anti-aging benefits. I love waking up in the morning with skin that feels soft, hydrated and plump. I can also see a visible improvement in my skin’s texture since using the night moisturiser.

Every set contains:

  • 1 smooth shaving gel with Argan oil
  • A 2-in-1 deep facial cleanser with alcohol-free toner
  • 3 Beard oils aimed at conditioning your man’s beard and skin
Mr. Perfect’s thought on these…

Although Alec is more of a stubble kind of guy he does like to be clean shaven on occasion and really enjoys the cooling effect of this shaving gel – making his skin feel fresh and smooth after shaving. He’s also seen less breakouts and ingrown hair since using the gel. With the addition of Argan oil, the shaving gel assists in various skin conditions such as dryness, acne, psoriasis, eczema, wrinkles and scar tissue.

For someone who loathes the use of many skincare product, the 2-in-1 deep facial cleanser with toner  is perfect! One product to use morning and evening. It’s quick, easy and effective. Leaving skin feeling taken care of in minutes.

Then the beard oils… These he can’t stop raving about!

  • The Conditioning & Prep Pre Shaving Oil is meant to be used before shaving to prepare the skin. With a blend of various natural oils that are healthy for your skin it leaves skin super soft and hydrated.

And that’s it for him, an easy skincare routine that can be kept up with minimal effort. We have however added a day and night moisturiser to Mr. Perfect’s kit for when we are home.

These kits are fantastic when traveling and if you are heading anywhere for the December holidays I would highly recommend purchasing one. It’s also great for those wanting to try The Oolala Collection for the first time as well as mamas-to-be packing those hospital bags. And no man will frown upon a set of beard oils if Santa happens to place them under the tree this Christmas…
