I’ll admit, as with most things, I’m a little bit lazy when it comes to skincare. Or efficient, as I prefer to think of it. 😂 I’m diligent, but don’t want to have to do more steps or use more products than I need to. That’s why I look for (and stick with) products that are effective and pleasant to use.

I never go to bed without cleansing my face. The Radiant Cleansing Balm removes makeup and cleanses without drying my skin. It has a fragrance that I love and find soothing. Extreme Recovery Cream provides deep moisture without being greasy or sticky.
In between cleansing and moisturizing, I alternate evenings between my prescription Retin-A and this Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum. It’s an Alpha Hydroxy Acid that gently loosens dead skin cells and inhibits dark spots. (This is another product I’ve re-purchased.)
Skin cancer runs in my family, so I’ve been getting checked regularly by dermatologists since my early 30’s. At my very first appointment, I asked the doc, “what skincare products do you recommend?” He barked, “Sunscreen!” I’ve been using it religiously ever since (and avoid prolonged sun exposure).
My current dermatologist prefers mineral sunscreens. It’s not always easy finding one that has both a higher SPF and doesn’t leave a whitish cast. When Colleen Rothschild introduced this reef-safe, SPF 40 Triple Defense Sunscreen, I ordered right away and it’s become my daily go-to sunscreen. It doesn’t look “ghostly” or pill, and works well under makeup. (Allow a few minutes before makeup application.)
Colleen Rothschild products are cruelty-free and made in the U.S.A. Don’t forget to use code LABORDAY for 20% off sitewide! Aren’t sure what to try? The Discovery Collection contains sample/travel sizes of 7 of her best selling products.
A quick travel update…
Unless anything changes drastically in the next few weeks, our trip to Italy, Paris and London in October is back ON! As we are fully vaccinated, we will be able to travel in the EU/UK with proof of vaccination and a negative Covid test. (Most of the new restrictions applied to un-vaccinated people.) I’m already planning my travel wardrobe… 🧳
