When it comes to skincare products, I’ll admit that I’m pretty demanding. They have to be effective, of course, but also cruelty-free. And, they have to feel good. They should be soothing, and should feel as though they absorb into my skin rather than sitting on top.

I’d first tried Colleen Rothschild skincare when I received some samples a couple of years ago. I’ve been meaning to circle back and try more of them (especially once I learned they are cruelty-free) so was delighted when they offered to send me some products to try and share with you.

My Nighttime Skincare Ritual
I’ll take you through the products I chose, and how I’ve incorporated them into my nightly skincare regime.
First, I cleanse with the Radiant Cleansing Balm. I looooove this cleanser. Just massage a small amount over the face and remove with a damp cloth (there’s a lovely muslin wash cloth included). It gently removes makeup, is soothing, and doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight or dry. Looooove this.
(I’ll get back to the Beauty Water in a moment.) Next up is a few drops of Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum. Don’t let “acid” in the name scare you…it’s actually quite gentle. The Mandelic Acid (AHA) promotes cellular turnover (exfoliation). I’ve only been using for a week, so can’t yet speak to the longer-term effects, but it does seem to keep my skin from looking dull.
The Beauty Water is fabulous! It’s formulated with coconut water and hyaluronic acid, and can be used after cleansing, or as a skin refresher during the day. I’ve been using it both ways, especially now that we’re heading into a dryer season. It feels wonderful either way. I plan to make room in my carry-on liquids bag for a travel size spritzer of this!
And then I finish up with the Extreme Recovery Cream. This feels wonderful, very soothing. It absorbs into my skin and keeps it feeling hydrated overnight. With the low-humidity conditions ahead, I’m going to order some of the Face Oil No. 9 for extra hydration.
No matter our age, healthy, glowing skin is always in.
