Would you rather: always have your hair styled or your makeup done? Personally, I’d rather always have my hair styled. I love wearing makeup and enjoy the process of putting it on, but I love my bare-faced days too. A big factor in that for me is that I feel confident in my skin without any makeup on. I haven’t always felt that way. I’ve spent years learning about what types of products to use for my skin, working through different bouts of regular breakouts, hormone changes, and environmental changes. In the last couple of years, I’ve put a huge emphasis on taking care of my skin. I wanted to be able to not put a stitch of makeup on and still feel confident.
The biggest factor in getting my skin to the place that it’s at now is the products I’m using! I’m not very adventurous with trying new brands, instead I tend to stick with what I know works for my skin. One of the brands that I’ve come to really love over the last few years is Colleen Rothschild. Not only are the products very effective for my skin, but they’re luxurious, too. I love the experience of a nighttime skincare routine as a part of my “self-care” time, so having luxurious products to use lends itself even more to that time! I’ve tried quite a few things from the brand over the years and can honestly say I have yet to try something that I didn’t like. That said, I have a few products that I buy again and again because they work really well for me.
Colleen Rothschild just started their Friends & Family Sale, offering 25% off site wide with code FAMILY25! I figured now is as good a time as any to share my top recommendations for you, since you can get them at a discount. So, let’s get into it!
Serums & Oils
Face Oil Nº9 – I can’t say enough about this face oil! I started using it at the recommendation of my mom, who I turned onto Colleen Rothschild products to begin with! It’s like liquid gold in a bottle. It nourishes the skin and leaves it looking more radiant and supple in the morning. I use it a couple times a week and always after I use the detox mask.
Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum – I’ve been using this one for a few months and like it. I was skeptical, at first, but I truly do see a difference in the brightness and overall look of my skin. I use this one a couple times a week.
Retinol Supreme Night Oil – I’ve shared before that traditional retinol makes me a little nervous, so I like that this is a gentler version. This helps to even skin tone/texture and renew your skin. I use this one a couple times week, typically rotating between these three oils.
Glycolic Acid Peel Pads with Blue Agave – This might be my favorite product from Colleen Rothschild because it’s unlike anything else I’ve tried. These pads are powerful, but they work! They work to remove dirt and debris from your skin, target fine lines and hyperpigmentation. My skin feels instantly refreshed after using one of these. I use one a couple times a week, or as-needed.
Radiant Cleansing Balm – If you like a cleansing balm, you will love this one. It’s effective in cleansing your skin and removing makeup, but also leaves skin feeling velvety soft. I love using this throughout the winter when I feel like I need a little extra softness to my skin.
Masks & Exfoliators
Clarifying Detox Mask – Hands down, my favorite facial mask from any brand. It is extremely effective on my skin and allows for a full detox. I like to use this once a week or so, following up with Face Oil Nº9.
Intense Hydrating Mask – A must have for me when my skin is dry. I use this mostly throughout the winter and during/after travel to restore some hydration to my skin. It’s not heavy, doesn’t clog my pores, but is effective in giving me that extra dose of moisture that my skin needs.
Restorative Hand Cream – A fantastic hand cream that is extremely effective without being greasy, which is hard to find!
