Q & A With Colleen  

Hi Everyone! Happy Fall. Today on the blog I am answering some of your questions!  We often are asked about suggested skincare routines, what's best for your specific skin condition and how our products work. I have taken ten of the most asked and listed them below. I love talking with you all, so feel free to send more of your questions to us either through social media using #AskColleen or shoot us an email at info@colleenrothschild.com. I can't wait to hear from you! xo-Colleen  

Q: Fall is here! What can I do to prepare for my skin for the colder months ahead?

A: A good way to get ready for the cooler temperatures is to exfoliate. Gently removing dull dry skin left over from the warm summer months can help reveal a beautiful glow instanly! Our Dual Enzyme Polish does the trick!  

Q: I love to use the Clarsonic. Do you have a product that would work well with it?

A: The Balancing Gel Cleanser works wonders with the Clarsonic device. A little goes a long way.  And most of all it leaves your skin feeling soft, clean and ready for your special treatments.  

Q:  What made you want to get into the skincare industry?

A: I can’t remember when I haven’t been in the beauty industry. For most of my career I worked behind the scenes in manufacturing, helping other companies create their beauty brands. I eventually took all that experinace and hard work to create my own line and have enjoyed every second of it!  

Q:  Will you be coming out with any new products soon?

A: Yes! We will have several new products coming out over the next few of months. Make sure you sign up for our newsletter and we will keep you posted! ☺  

Q: Can you recommend a mask good for oily skin? I also get break outs from time to time.

A: The Clarifying Detox Mask works wonders at helping to balance your skin. You can use it twice a week on clean skin….it also helps to draw out dirt and grime that’s down deep! It can also be used as a spot treatment on those pesky little pimples.  

Q: I am new to the brand, what products do you recommend I start with?

A: We like to recommend the Discovery Collection for those who are new to the brand, and don’t know what to buy. It includes 7 deluxe “Try-Me” size products and is a great way to get acquainted with our line.  

Q: Do your products work well with sensitive skin types?

A: Our products were created for all ages and skin conditions.  

Q: In what order should I use the End of Day Ritual Bundle?

A:

1) Radiant Cleansing Balm

2)  Dual Enzyme Polish

3) Retinol Treatment Complex

4) Extreme Recovery Cream

5) Face Oil No9  

Q:  What is one of the best tips you can give for having and keeping healthy skin.

A: One thing I always tell my daughter is to wash her face as soon as she gets home. Sometimes if we wait till just before bedtime we are too tired to wash our faces and one day of not washing your face can lead to days of wishing you had!!  

Q:  What product is a must have for Anti-Aging?

A:  I feel that women of all ages should use a Retinol product. It helps keep skin clear and smooth. And don’t forget, while using a Retinol product to keep your skin moisturized and protected during the day with an SPF. (Try my Retinol Treatment Complex and Daily Defense SPF)

Instagram Giveaway: End of Day Ritual Bundle

Posted by Colleen Rothschild on

Beauty Bundles  are officially here and I want to tell you about my current favorite…the End of Day Ritual bundle.

We created the End of Day Ritual Bundle to show you one of my favorite skincare routines! This bundle sets you up with all you need to keep your skin healthy, nourished and moisturized after a long day.

So what’s inside?

1. Radiant Cleansing Balm. This is the very first thing I use as it not only washes ALL of my make-up off, but removes impurities and clears congested pores! With the addition of the Muslin Clothe, I finish feeling like I just had a mini-facial…

2. Dual Enzyme Polish. I use this exfoliate 1-2 times a week. Apply this to your face in a circular motion to activate the microspheres; this will leave your skin feeling refined and radiant. It smells delicious too!

3. Retinol Treatment Complex.  This cream helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles, clear pores and improve dull skin. Apply a thin, even layer to your face and neck. The results? A brighter looking complexion.

4. Extreme Recovery Cream. This is the ultimate moisturizer for dehydrated skin. It fights the signs of fine lines and wrinkles while evening out skin tone and texture. Use by gently massaging onto your face and neck, preferably over one of my treatment complexes.

5. Last but certainly not least, Face Oil No9.  Combining 9 transformative oils, my face oil provides an intense moisture boost that deeply nourishes your skin.  Just apply 3-4 drops after cleansing, and gently massage onto face, neck and décolleté.

We are kicking off this weekend a little early with a fun giveaway! Head on over to the Colleen Rothschild Instagram page to enter to win my End of Day Ritual bundle for you AND a friend!

Good luck!

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.
