Our Favorite Skincare Brand Just Launched Some New Products (SPOILER: They’re Amazing)

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

I don’t talk about beauty products much here on TME, but I’ll admit I’m a skincare junkie. I LOVE trying new products, all the time. I love the whole experience of opening a new jar of lotion or a new scrub or mask. I love the packaging, the scents…is anyone else like this? I remember my grandmother used to always smell like the best soapy, light floral scents and lotions. That woman had the softest hands of anyone I’ve ever known. I come by my addiction naturally. She used to save the little free gift products and cute bags for me from all the department store brands. I was her only granddaughter, and I was definitely spoiled with beauty products. Haha.

I’ve been using some Colleen Rothschild products now for over a year. They have become some of my absolute favs. I was excited when this chance came my way to try more of their offerings that I hadn’t checked out yet, including their new release Cocoa Radiant Cleansing Balm. If you’ve been a TME reader for any amount of time, you know the Radiant Cleansing Balm. It’s everything. Hydrating and moisturizing, but also perfectly cleansing and a pleasure to wash your face with. Well, now they’ve come out with a version that smells like chocolate, you guys. And it’s indulgent and fabulous.

Colleen Rothschild is currently having a Customer Appreciation Sale. Use code CAS50 to save $50 off a purchase of $150. Call it a belated Galentine’s gift to yourself and get that cleansing balm!!

Like I said, washing your face with this stuff is actually enjoyable and easy. You rub a small dab all over your dry face (yes, no water dripping down your arms — can I get an AMEN?). The balm dissolves makeup and oil while not stripping your skin of its natural oils. You then wet the luxurious muslin cloth included with the balms in warm water, and place it on your face for a mini-facial. Ahhh. Then wipe off the balm and makeup goes with it.

After that amazing step, I then tried out the new Matcha Tea Treatment Toner. This detoxifies and removes any leftover oils, again without over-drying. The scent is very light and lovely, and the color is gorgeous sitting out on your bathroom counter catching the light. (I told you I was into this stuff).

An additional product I tried for the first time was the Dual Enzyme Polish. This is an exfoliating and brightening scrub you use one to two times a week. You apply it, leave it for five to ten minutes to let the enzymes do their enzyme thing, and then rub in a circular motion to give your skin an awesomely soft glow, and rinse off. I’ve realized the absolute importance of regular exfoliation over the last few years. It is essential to getting a gorgeously smooth texture and natural glow. Plus, it really leaves a nice, smooth surface for better makeup application.

OK, so skin is smooth and glowing. I then applied the Retinol Supreme Eye Serum, because, 41 y’all. I put this under only one eye the other day, and ooh that one was moisturized and looked at least in its early 30s. The other was jealous. I love this stuff so far. It even brought a little morning puffiness down. #fistbump

The last step for me is applying the beautiful Extreme Recovery Cream. OMG. Shana loves this, too, and it’s just the most moisturizing, beautiful thing. I mostly wear it in the evenings, but I do apply it in the mornings in the winter, unless I’m going straight to workout. I find it’s a bit heavy if I’m sweating, but I can’t tell you how lovely this is for dry skin. It doesn’t leave my T-zone feeling greasy either.

Discovery Kit

This cute travel bag above comes with the Discovery Kit, which I had just ordered myself before trying these other new products. I got it for my upcoming travel so I just don’t have to think about my skincare. It’s all there. Included is the original Radiant Cleansing Balm, Dual Enzyme Polish, Clarifying Detox Mask, Sheer Renewal Cream (good for daytime/warmer weather use), Extreme Recovery Cream, Face Oil N°9 (which I also adore for adding to my nightly routine), and a lovely Muslin Face Cloth.

Also, my friend Chris who took these lovely photos was totally making me laugh here. We typically hang out at coffee shops and not in my bathroom. So, while we’re both completely professional, we also can’t help but have fun.

And can we talk about my gorgeous robe here for a second? It’s from the lovely Anna Joyce here in Portland. She’s amazing and so are her insanely soft, hand-dyed creations. Between this robe and these products I feel way fancy doing my skincare routine. I’m also wearing the fuzziest slippers ever and the softest sweatpants (size small). I turned 41 recently, and I feel like I’m finally getting it dialed in, you guys.

But seriously, these products are beautiful and your skin feels incredible after using them. If you’re looking for some new skincare, I hope you’ll give these a try. And now is the perfect time to do so!

  1. Oooohhh yes that retinol oil is amazing! I mix a few drops with my moisturizer and it’s perfect. There is just something about spoiling yourself with lovely products. ❤️

  2. So,what I really want is a post about your hair. It always looks slightly different and this post was the first time I could really appreciate the slight mohawk thing going on, which is pretty amazing. Although I have very different hair type ( pretty curly), I have found myself telling my hairstylist each time that I want it shorter and shorter and bigger and bigger- like hands waving in the air around my head bigger. A post about your amazing short cut would be much appreciated!!!

    • I just posted a closer side pic on my Instagram stories if you would like to check that out! It’s from my stylist. @laurajansenstyle on Instagram. Hope that helps! And thanks!

  3. I’ve seen the TME posts on Colleen Rothschild for years and decided to dip my toe into the CR brand by trying the Extreme Recovery Cream since I use an intense retinol 2-3x a week, it’s winter and 50 year old skin requires some TLC. This cream is heavenly. I’ve been slathering it on my face morning and night since it arrived a few days ago and I LOVE it. Rich, yet somehow light and fluffy. My skin feels softer, refreshed and my makeup is going on much better! So happy I finally gave CR a whirl. Best moisturizer I’ve ever used by far. When the eye retinol is back in stock I’ll order that as well.
