Today’s review is about Collistar Omega 3 + Omega 6 Oil Cream. I love Collistar products and use them regularly. They work very well on my skin and I have seen improvements over the past year. So, I went ahead and bought quite a few items. Here is the review of a face cream, which I have been using last few weeks and read on to know my opinion.
An extraordinary Collistar product with an exceptionally concentrated, pure and effective active ingredient. The special ‘oil-cream’ structure has been specifically designed to
Optimize transmission of the Omega oils to the tissue
Strengthen the skin’s hydrolipidic balance
Provide the skin with extra nourishment, elasticity and comfort.
The skin instantly feels incredibly softer and more velvety. Day by day it becomes stronger, suppler and more compact. Small wrinkles and the signs of dehydration are reduced and the face is significantly more toned and smoother.
Massage in circular motions from the center of the face outwards and from the base of the neck upwards in the morning and/or evening. End by gently pressing the face and neck with both hands.
THE PURE ACTIVES BEAUTY ROUTINE
The Oil Cream is an extraordinary product on its own, but it can also be combined with Omega 3 + Omega 6 Oil drops for an even more powerful ‘professional’ result, just like a real beauty center treatment.
PHASE 1. Olio Omega 3 + Omega 6 Oil drops
Warm a few drops between the fingers and brush gently from the center of the face outwards, and from the base of the neck upwards. Stimulate the skin by gently pinching to improve oxygenation and to aid penetration of the active ingredient.
PHASE 2. Olio Omega 3 + Omega 6 Oil Cream
Apply to the face and neck massaging gently into the skin to help it absorb. End by gently pressing the face and neck with both hands.

My Experience with Collistar Omega 3 + Omega 6 Oil Cream:
The face cream comes in a glass jar which is yellow and golden in color. I love the packaging. It looks luxurious but not very travel-friendly, as the glass jar makes it heavy. I normally scoop out a little face cream in a smaller plastic bottle when I am travelling, so that I save on space and weight.
The lid is plastic which works just perfect. There is also an inner flap lid which prevents the cream from sticking to the outer lid, which I really appreciate. The product also comes with a small scoop for everyday use. Many people do not like digging into the jar due to hygienic reasons. I am a little lazy to use the scoop and prefer fingers. This whole packaging comes in a cardboard packaging with all details written on the cardboard.
The texture of the cream is like soft butter. I love using it with my fingers. I feel the cream spreads very well all over the face, since it is so creamy and not so thick. The product practically melts as you massage it into the skin. I love working with it.
The cream looks cream in color and has a fresh scent of lemon. The fragrance is very mild and can be noticed only during the initial few minutes. This product has no added color or fragrance which I find great. The product gets the fragrance from the citrus extracts present in the ingredients list.
The cream leaves an oily film on the face and the face is not matte. I have dry skin and my skin is very sensitive especially during winter months. I need something which adds that extra moisturizing effect for my skin. So, I love the thin oil film on my face. My face has that healthy glow after use, due to the amazing oils present in the cream.
The face cream works as a good base for makeup. I top it with foundation and they work like a miracle giving me that inner glow.
I would not recommend it to oily skinned people, but for normal to dry skin, it works great. My skin and makeup looks perfect all day long and it does not feel oily at any point of time. It feels light on the skin.
The skin also feels soft and smooth after regular usage. I have seen that my skin is clearing up and prone to less breakouts after I switched to Collistar products. I alternate this with 2 other Collistar face creams regularly. The ingredients in this product look promising and I think it’s worth the money.
