Colleen's Morning Skincare Routine

Posted by Colleen Rothschild on

I love mornings.

It’s the beginning of a new day, with new opportunities and adventures to be had. One of the first things I do is get my skin ready for the day. My routine is all about cleansing, brightening and protecting my skin.

So what do I use?

First, I splash my face and neck with water and apply my Balancing Gel Cleanser. I use by massaging a small amount in a circular motion. I love this cleanser because it thoroughly cleanses my skin, leaving it ultra smooth and revitalized, while also protecting it. It’s also a great prep for my next treatment, the Vitamin C Treatment Complex.

This treatment is great because it works to improve your natural radiance and clarity, while also defending against environmental aggressors, like the sun! To use I simply apply a small amount into my hand and gently massage an even layer over my face and neck.

The next thing I use is my Complete Eye Cream. I love this eye cream because it not only addresses the signs of fine lines, but also reduces the appearance of under-eye darkness and restores elasticity. I use my ring finger to apply around my eye area in a gentle patting motion.

After the Complete Eye Cream, I apply the Sheer Renewal Cream. This can be used at morning or night and provides continuous hydration. It’s oil-free and has a powder finish, which leaves my skin feeling light and breathable! It’s often said to be a great make-up primer too. Apply to a cleansed face, neck and décolleté.

Last but most certainly not least, I apply my Daily Defense SPF 25. It is so important to protect your skin from the sun and it’s harmful rays. The sun, over time, can cause wrinkles, freckles and blemishes. It’s oil-free, absorbs quickly and is ultra-lightweight, leaving my skin with a soft matte finish.

That’s it! After I apply my make-up and grab some coffee, I'm ready to head out for the day, knowing my skin is protected and taken care of, for whatever lies ahead.

There was such a high request for my morning skincare routine, that I made it a Beauty Bundle! You can shop all these products, at a valued price, here: Morning Refresh Bundle.

I hope you enjoy it as much I do.

Spring Skincare Edit

Posted by Colleen Rothschild on

Spring has officially arrived! Start the new season with these springtime essentials to maintain brighter, glowing and healthy looking skin in 3 easy steps.

dual_enzyme_polish_txt-1

Begin by shedding your winter skin and exfoliate with the Dual Enzyme Polish. This exfoliator efficiently sloughs dull cells from the skin’s surface with microspheres, while deeply exfoliating with its fruit enzyme and AHA cocktail. You’ll love the light papaya scent and creamy texture, plus your skin will be left refined and radiant.

Follow with the multi-purpose Beauty Water. It delivers immediate and long-term hydration by preserving optimal H20 balance, reducing trans-epidermal water loss, and boosting hydration under moisturizers. This pick-me-up for dehydrated, tight, uncomfortable skin, cools and calms, sets and refreshes makeup and leaves your complexion with a healthy glow.

PopSugar's Assistant Beauty Editor, Jessica Cruel, chose our Sheer Renewal Cream as her favorite moisturizer in her Spring Skin Care Routine. This oil-free, moisturizer provides continuous, weightless, hydration and promotes new cell turnover to help minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles, all with a velvety powder finish.

A True Multisensory Experience

Posted by Colleen Rothschild on

mul·ti·sen·so·ry
adj. Relating to or involving several bodily senses
We love the word “multisensory” because it sums up the beauty of our Radiant Cleansing Balm so well. It describes the way it looks, feels, smells, and of course, how it gives you the clean, radiant-looking skin you’ve been waiting for!

The first thing you’ll notice about the cleansing balm is its luxurious smooth texture, and the spa-like aroma of fresh cloves and rosemary. This aromatic complex not only smells intoxicating, it also calms the senses and decongests – you’ll actually look forward to caring for your skin every night!

What also makes this cleansing balm so special is the amazing job it does of completely dissolving all types of makeup (even eye makeup) and clearing congested pores. Traditional cleansers can sometimes strip your skin, leaving your face feeling tight and dry. But our cleansing balm gives your skin the ultimate in deep down cleansing, while keeping it well nourished and happy.

Don’t be afraid of cleansing balms if you have oily or problem skin! Again, when skin has been stripped clean with some cleansers, it can actually produce more pore-clogging sebum, which results in all kinds of unpleasantness. By not stripping away good skin oils, that helps control sebum balance, leaving only clearer, fresher-looking skin behind.

So how do you use a cleansing balm? Start by scooping a dollop onto clean, dry hands, and then rub your hands together to get the balm all nice and warm and fragrant. Then just massage the balm directly into your skin. You’ll see the yucky dirt and grime immediately start melting away.

Next comes the fun part – a mini facial! The Radiant Cleansing Balm comes with a muslin cleansing cloth to provide the perfect cleansing–to–exfoliation ratio. Rinse the cloth under very warm water, wring it out lightly, and place over your face for a few relaxing moments. Be sure to inhale deeply to get the full effects of the aromatic complex. When you’re ready, wipe the balm and “other stuff” completely away. Then finally rinse cloth under cold water and press over face to help close pores and go to bed knowing you’ll get up the next day with soft, balanced, gloriously clean skin.

Warning: Radiant Cleansing Balm is addictive. Do not attempt unless you are prepared to fall in love with it and use it forever and ever.
