SUMMER SKINCARE ROUTINE

SUMMER SKINCARE ROUTINE

SHOP THE POST

Ready for the best news ever? I have FINALLY found a skincare regimen that I LOVE (insert dancing toddler GIF). You guys have been begging asking very nicely, and it’s here!

To preface this post, some of you may remember I found my dream product line during pregnancy. Honestly, my skin never looked better. However, about 1 year postpartum, as I wrapped up breastfeeding, my skin started responding negatively to some of the products. I was devastated. Apparently, this is common after childbirth: our skin, hair, etc all change as our hormones normalize. Well, for the past year, I have been searching for a solution. And I finally found a routine that is simple, effective, and travel-friendly. I can’t tell you how many times a week someone says: “What are you doing differently with your skin? You are glowing!” Seriously. And I’m not even pregnant!

Ok, rewind to April. Remember when I traveled to Dallas for the RewardStyle Conference? During my time there, I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Colleen and Stan Rothschild, from Colleen Rothschild Beauty. The FIRST thing they asked me: “How do you like your Tesla?!” SOLD! ha No, but seriously, after trying several of their products, I fell in love. Not only have these products improved my skin, they feel absolutely wonderful and are easy to travel with.

COLLEEN ROTHSCHILD BEAUTY

So, who are they? And what are they about? Colleen Rothschild is a luxury skincare brand focused on creating products that can be used daily and for every skin-type, from young to aging and normal to acne-prone. The science behind their brand is driven by their proprietary delivery system, Level E3. These products feel, smell, and look absolutely gorgeous! And the best part? Colleen Rothschild high-performance products combine a perfect blend of potent plant botanicals and advanced scientific ingredients from around the world. Every ingredient is selected for its efficacy and safety, and all their products are formulated without parabens, SLS/SLES sulfates, triclosan, formaldehyde, PABA, toluene, or benzene. And of course, cruelty free.

SUMMER SKINCARE ROUTINE (SHHH HUGE SALE TOO)

Without further adieu, here is my summer skincare routine, step by step, including both AM and PM. Of course, let me know if you have ANY questions and make sure you keep scrolling to the end. They have an amazing 4th of July sale starting TOMORROW, June 29th!! Oh, and one more cool thing! Colleen provides video instructions for each of the products. I thought about doing something similar, but why reinvent the wheel…she does an EXCELLENT (and gorg) job breaking down each product and instructions for use.

AM SKINCARE ROUTINE

WASH: Radiant Cleansing Balm

The first step in the process is to wash my face with the oh so luxurious (or should I say LUTZURIOUS) cleansing balm. This velvety balm seriously clears any and all trace of makeup, while leaving my skin super soft. The best part? It comes with a muslin cloth, which feels like a spa experience in itself. Gently apply the balm to your face, melting the makeup off your face. Using warm water, soak the muslin cloth, then hold on your face to create a mini facial. Finally, gently clean the makeup and impurities off your face using the cloth. You will LOOOOOVE this. Don’t worry, you don’t HAVE to use the cloth, a washcloth will work. But I highly recommend it.

PROTECT: Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Lightweight Fluid

I have to admit, I am HORRIBLE about applying daily sunscreen. I always just assume my makeup will cover me, but what if I don’t wear makeup?! Yeah, tanned skin is old skin. One of my pet peeves is how greasy and heavy sunscreens can feel on my skin. And honestly, they typically break me out. However, this SPF25 is oil free, fragrance free, and has both UVA and UVB protection.

MOISTURIZE: Sheer Renewal Cream

This moisturizer is ahhhhhhhh-mazing. It’s so light and airy, yet makes my skin feel firm and oh so soft. You can honestly use it morning or not, and it does not feel greasy AT ALL.

FINISH: Beauty Water

Who is basically dying of heat stroke, sweating to death from the humidity, and constantly feeling like their makeup is running all over the place? Yeah, ME TOO. Miz.com. This little spray is SO refreshing and sets your makeup perfectly. You can use anytime of the day for a quick pick-me-up, but I love using after I apply my makeup or right after I apply my moisturizer.


PM SKINCARE ROUTINE

WASH: Radiant Cleansing Balm (same as AM)

Colleen has other cleansers, but I am all about keeping things simple. And I love that damn cloth! Honestly, its a little luxury for me when I am traveling or after a long day. So I stick to the cleansing balm for my PM routine as well. If you want another option, she also carries the Balancing Gel Cleanser, which I have heard is ah-may-zing.

EXFOLIATE: Dual Enzyme Polish (2-3 times per week)

Oh em gee, this product, you guys. Let me remind you that it is a STRUGGLE for me to even wash my face twice a day, let alone exfoliate. But now I love “polishing” my face a few times a week. TIP: Apply this to your face at night before you brush your teeth and put on your jammies. After about 15 minutes, use the Muslin cloth to wipe off. Mini spa right before bed! And it contains Argan oil, y’all. HUGE FAN.

BOOST: Radiance Serum

Y’all, y’all, y’all, y’all. I have to admit, I sort of pushed this product to the side for the first couple of weeks. Now, I am ADDICTED. I swear this is a real life Instagram filter. Daily mistake 1,954,636: I don’t drink enough water. I know, terrible. BUT, this oil gives me an instant boost of moisture. But again, it is not greasy, which is crazy to me. Apply PRIOR to your moisturizer. It dries very evenly and feels oh so, LUTZURIOUS on your skin.

MOISTURIZE: Sheer Renewal Cream OR Extreme Recovery Cream

A few times a week, I use the Extreme Recovery Cream. It feels amazing, and it’s perfect for frequent travelers. It truly locks in the moisture without feeling greasy.


TRAVEL OPTION

The first two questions I had for Colleen were 1) how many steps is the regimen and 2) do you have travel options? I loved her answers for both. This skincare is avery simple and straightforward. If a regimen is too long or detailed, I will just skip it all together and wash my face with my husbands face wash (if I wash it at all). When traveling, I always pack my Discovery Collection. If you are a traveler, I HIGHLY recommend this. It contains everything you need in TSA-friendly sizes packaged in a super cute travel bag. I leave this packed and throw it in my carry on before I hop on the plane. Here is what it includes:

  • Radiant Cleansing Balm, 30 ml (1 fl oz)
  • Dual Enzyme Polish, 15 ml (0.5 fl oz)
  • Clarifying Detox Mask, 15 ml (0.5 fl oz)
  • Sheer Renewal Cream, 30 ml (1 fl oz)
  • Extreme Recovery Cream, 15 ml (0.5 fl oz)
  • Face Oil N°9, 4 ml (0.14 fl oz)
  • Muslin Cleansing Cloth
  • Exclusive CR Travel Bag


HOW TO GET STARTED

Unsure of where to start or what to get? Again, I recommend the Discovery Collection. It’s 7 deluxe samples of their top selling products and is a great way to get a taste of the entire line.

If you are ready to dive right in, head to Colleen’s Recommended Routines. This will spell out exactly what she recommends for AM, PM, Bi-Weekly, and Special Treatment.

For those of you wanting to follow my AM and PM regimen, I have linked each product in the title, below each step, and the top and bottom of the post in a widget (click each product image). If you need help ordering or have questions, let me know. Remember, starting June 29th and running through July 4th, EVERYTHING is 20% off, using code JULY4TH! After the discount, that brings the Discovery Collection to $76 (a $150 value).
