Hey y'all! I hope you are had a great weekend and are having a great week so far! As always, things are busy, busy around here. But no matter how busy I am, I keep up with keeping a consistent skincare routine. This is something that is very new to me in the past year. I never did well with a true, consistent routine, and, wow, can I tell a difference, especially when traveling!
Last year, I was introduced to Colleen Rothschild Beauty via several ladies I follow on Instagram. I finally made the investment, and added several of her products to my beauty pantry. After the first application, I was HOOKED! My skin had never felt to soft and radiant. And I am not exaggerating. Since then, I have added several more of her products to my routine, and my skin has never felt or looked better. I stick to this routine while traveling as well, and I don't feel such a drastic change in my skin due to various changes in climates, conditions, and altitudes as I have in the past when traveling or flying.
Paired with a few other products, Colleen Rothschild is game changing, so naturally I want to share this with everyone. I feel like all of my friends are going to get her Discovery Kit for birthday or Christmas gifts! I know that I sound like a saleswoman, but I promise this is 100% authentic! I am a believer!
So, here is my life changing skincare routine. I've linked the products I use and included when & what order I use them.
Night Face Routine
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser | In the shower, I wash off the day's makeup & grime with Cetaphil. This isn't a necessary step, but I like the added wash. Cetaphil is gentle enough it does not strip my skin, so it pairs great with the next step.
Colleen Rothschild Beauty Radiant Cleansing Balm | This would be my #1 pick for my beauty skin routine. This cleansing balm has completely changed my life. The first time I used it, I knew it was going to be a game changer. It is so nourishing, yet melts off your make up. It is so gentle, you can rub it on your eye makeup and open your eyes while washing. To wash off you use a muslin cloth included with the cleanser that gives a bit of exfoliation. I cannot recommend this enough!
Frankenscince Essential Oil | Not only does it smell amazing, Frankenscince oil is amazing for your skin! It is great for helping with scarring, rashes, and burns, but it also helps with anti-aging. I use a roller top on the essential oil bottle, and do a quick roll on my forehead, each cheekbone, and under my jaw line. I apply 2-3 times a week using a jade roller.
Jade Roller | I use a jade roller to not only rub in the frankenscine oil, but for other benefits to my skin as well. It is said to reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, assist in lymphatic drainage & blood circulation, and eliminate toxins in the skin. You can read some great information on the benefits of jade rolling here. I use this duo 2-3 times a week.
Colleen Rothschild Beauty Sheer Renewal Cream | This is my #2 pick from Colleen Rothschild Beauty. I have never used a face cream that I love, but this is incredible! It leaves my skin feeling silky and hydrated. It does not leave a sticky film, and my skin feels refreshed when I wake up in the morning.
Colleen Rothschild Beauty Extreme Recovery Cream | I recently added this into my routine, and it is so good! My skin drinks up this thicker cream! Creams that I have tried in the past have made my skin feel clogged and sticky, but this is so breathable. I use this cream a couple of times a week, though it you can use it every day. I think this is a great cream for the harsher cold of the winter. Lately, I've tended to use the Sheer Renewal Cream when it is much hotter or humid outside.
Morning Face Routine
Colleen Rothschild Beauty Vitamin C Treatment Complex | This is also a recent add to my routine. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects against sun damage and has anti-aging benefits. I put this on a few minutes before my moisturizer, and never even feel it there!
Neutrogena Suncreen Moisturizer | In the past I never moisturized my skin in the mornings. I didn't want to feel like my face was suffocating under my make up. But since using the Vitamin C Treatment and this sunscreen Moisturizer, I realize I was doing the opposite for my skin. My skin was unprotected, and, therefore, free to soak in my makeup, unprotected against sun damage, and subject to the dirt & grime of the day. My skin no longer feels cakey or like it can't breath when I wear make up, and I rest easy knowing that my precious skin is protected agains the sun. I love the lightweight feeling of this moisturizer.
Chapstick | What can I say? I'm a simple girl—I love some regular ole Chapstick! The now have Chapstick with sunscreen, so it is a great addition to my skincare. I apply this multiple times a day, and under lipstick.
Travel Bottles | These are my favorite travel bottles. Though they are not the TSA approved size for carry-on, they are my favorite for checked bags. There is nothing worse than running out of what I need, so this size guarantees I won't run out of my Cetaphil or other soaps or shampoos while traveling.
Travel Jars | I hate to bring my full size jars of beauty skincare products, so these jars are great for carrying just enough of each product for my trip. They are great for giving samples to share with my girlfriends as well.
Plan to Try Soon
Colleen Rothschild Beauty Intense Hydrating Mask | I've been reading up on this hydrating mask, and I hope to try it soon. What appeals my to this mask is that you can wash it off, or just let it soak into your skin. So great for low maintenance!
Turmeric & Neem Oil Brightening Mask | Neem oil is all the rage right now. It is in hair care products for hydrating & strengthening the hair. In this case, paired with turmeric, you get the benefits of hydrating, strengthening, and brightening of the skin.
I want to add that I know the Colleen Rothschild products are pricey. However, I I have had the same jar of the Cleansing Balm since October. So though they are an investment, the products are worth it and lasting!
I hope this encourages you to get into a skincare routine that works for YOU, because implementing a routine has been so amazing for my skin and how I feel.
