This post is written in collaboration with Colleen Rothschild. Thank you so much for supporting the brands I love.
Skincare is still a bit foreign to me, even after changing it up last year. I used to be a one and done type of gal. A little facial cleanser and lotion – THAT IS IT. “Ain’t nobody got time for that” I would say. It’s still hard for me to take that 10 minutes at the end of a long day to wash my face and apply the few things that I have for my skincare routine but as I approach mid 30s, I know how important it is. There is a method to how you apply each item and in order for it to work correctly, you need to make sure you have everything in the right order. I will briefly touch on that as we move through the post!
This sale is HUGE. These products rarely go on sale at 25% off and there are a few products that are absolutely amazing in this lineup! First one I want to talk about is the eye cream. Once my eye cream ran out back in January, I started using this one. It has been EXTREMELY productive with the elimination of my dark eye circles. This is really the only product that I have tried that has even made a dent in mine. I inherited these babies so I have had them since I was a little girl but I finally feel like they’re under control and easily concealable with a little makeup (which wasn’t the case for years). Everyone I have talked to that has tried this eye cream, swears by it and I can finally understand why!
When to apply: Before your moisturizer, day & night (I typically only end up doing this at night)
Next up? The vitamin C treatment complex. I was using for months but then ran out 🙁 The CR team was kind enough to send me a new tube and I am so excited to add it back into my routine (the other one I was using had a funky smell to it!) Vitamin C is absolutely necessary if you care about your skin’s longevity. I only learned this over the past year so if you are clueless like I was, don’t fret 😉 It helps boost collagen products, reducing fine lines & wrinkles and also defends against environmental aggressors. It really makes a huge difference in “sun spots” and uneven skin tone.
When to apply: In the morning, after your cleanser and before your moisturizer. I was actually reading an article that recommends it’s use at night as well!
Last product that I have used consistently is the age renewal serum. I heard about this bottle of magic from Colleen herself when I went to the Rewardstyle conference 2 years back. It’s HIGHLY recommended and truly works! It is targeted to fight off the six signs of aging: elasticity, fine lines, tone, dehydration, texture & radiance. It truly lives up to it’s name “SUPER” serum because it’s packed with so many great ingredients (collagen boosters, vitamins, etc.). I have noticed a huge difference in the fine lines around my eyes since using this product!
Last product I am featuring here is the intense hydrating mask. This is a new product for me and I just tried it for the first time last night! My face feels INCREDIBLE TODAY. I have read that some people will use this as a deep moisturizer and not wipe it off too! I am a person that uses a face mask about twice a year but I want to break that “habit”. I plan to use this at least once per week!
