Whenever there’s a site wide sale at Colleen Rothschild, you know I’m going to do a HUGE post.
You need to get excited because they’ve given Sheaffer Told Me To Readers an EARLY ACCESS BLACK FRIDAY sale code.
And it’s really good.
It’s 30% OFF with the code STMT30!
This is the most % off they ever do, so it’s time to stock up for yourself and grab some gifts too! Because here’s the deal, if you already love Colleen Rothschild, you should really love gifting Colleen products. Because it’s so much fun to share things you love with people you love!
Use the code STMT30 to get 30% almost everything on the site (with the exception of the new Advent Calendar and the duo sets they put together because the prices are already super reduced)!
I’m happy to report that all of the gift and travel sets (that are already a fantastic price) WILL work with the STMT30 code.
The boxes that these sets come in are so cute, so festive, and totally giftable!
The Kiss and Tell Lip Care Trio is all about lip care, and I love all 3 products in this kit. This kit would make a fabulous gift! The set includes the following:
- Vitamin E Lip Moisturizer – Brown Sugar
- Sugar Lip Scrub – Brown Sugar
- Butter Lip Mask – Brown Sugar
- Velvet Pouch
It’s a $110 value, typically offered for $75, and right now the code STMT30 will get you 30% OFF (making it ONLY $60). If you have issues with dry lips, this kit is a MUST. You exfoliate with the lip scrub, hydrate at night with the lip mask, and then use the lip moisturizer (I keep it in my purse) whenever you need it. THE SCENT IS DIVINE. Your lips will love this kit.
The Discovery Kit is one of their very best deals, especially when 30% OFF. It’s $150 worth of products, typically offered for $95, but you can get it right now for ONLY $76 with the STMT30 code.
If you already know and love the brand, this kit is great because it makes traveling with your favorite products super easy.
OR if you’re new to the brand (or just want to try some new products), this Discovery Kit is a great option for you too. It contains many of their most popular products and would be a great way to give them all a try! I’ve had many readers say that after giving the Discovery Kit a shot, they are now loyal users.
The kit includes the following:
- Radiant Cleansing Balm
- Dual Enzyme Polish
- Clarifying Detox Mask
- Sheer Renewal Cream
- Extreme Recovery Cream
- Face Oil N°9
- Muslin Cleansing Cloth
- And an exclusive CR Travel Bag
While I think of the above Discovery Kit as being great for those of us with more mature skin, I think of the Exploration Collection as being good for people with younger skin. In fact, I bought this kit this year for Carter to try the products out, and he’s having great success with the gel, toner, and scrub. At 15, he was starting to struggle with breakouts here and there, and these products have really helped to clear them up.
The 5-pc kit contains…
- Balancing Gel Cleanser
- Matcha Tea Treatment Toner
- Intense Hydrating Mask
- Micro-Mineral Resurfacing Scrub
- CR Ultra-Soft Headwrap
- And an exclusive CR Travel Bag
With the STMT30 code, it takes the price down to $60 for the entire kit (reg. $75).
The Quench and Shine Travel Hair Essentials Set is just as awesome as the skin travel kits. I don’t love the CR shampoo (my mom does), but I LOVE EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE KIT. With the STMT30 code, it takes the price down to $60 for the entire kit (reg. $75).
After using these products your hair will smell amazing and you will love the way it both looks and feels.
If you’re already obsessed with the skin care, I highly recommend you give the hair care products a try, and this kit is a great way to do it!
What’s Included in the Set:
- Quench & Shine Restorative Shampoo
- Replenish & Shine Daily Conditioner
- Quench & Shine Restorative Mask
- Smooth & Shine Hair Serum
- Protect & Perfect Styling Cream

And although you can’t use the STMT30 code on this next product, I still wanted to highlight it because it is incredible and very timely. The CR Advent Calendar is $285 worth of products for ONLY $150. From luxurious full-size treats to premium-sized minis, each product was especially selected for this fabulous set.
- PANORAMIC MASCARA Volume, length and definition. (Shade: Wicked Black), VITAMIN E LIP MOISTURIZER Instant moisture & delicious shine, MATCHA TEA HYDRATING BALM Delivers instant hydration, RADIANT CLEANSING BALM Cleanse, restore & balance, QUENCH & SHINE RESTORATIVE MASK Smooth, strengthen & shine, INTENSE HYDRATING MASK Multitasking concentration of moisture, CLARIFYING DETOX MASK Deeply clean, brighten & balance, SHEER RENEWAL CREAM Oil-free, weightless hydration, MATCHA TEA TREATMENT TONER Detoxify, protect, absorb excess oil, EXTREME RECOVERY CREAM Super hydrating care for thirsty skin, BALANCING GEL CLEANSER Gentle, purifying and pH balanced, and DUAL ENZYME POLISH Exfoliate, brighten and soften

MY SKIN CARE FAVORITES
Now that I’ve covered all of the special holiday sets, let’s get back to the basics.
If you’ve been following me for a while now, you know there are a handful of brands that I’m super loyal to. There are just certain brands that are constants in my life that I feel deserve my complete devotion. And because of my deep and abiding love, I want y’all to love the brands too!
Right at the tip top of that list is Colleen Rothschild!
I was introduced to Colleen Rothschild by my friend Carly (at C Style) around 10 years ago now. I started with 1 product (the Radiant Cleansing Balm), and over the years I’ve added product after product for both my skin and now my hair. Plain and simple, Colleen Rothschild products do what they say they are going to do. If you try them, you too will be a believer.
And it’s not just me that loves the products, my mom and sister are now loyal users as well! And I know many of you are too! We all three absolutely swear by both the skin and the hair products.
The Illuminating Tinted Eye Cream is a new favorite and it’s BACK IN STOCK, baby! And with the code STMT30 you can get 30% OFF (reg. $48, ONLY $38.40 right now)! This was my personal #1 find when I first used it back in March, and it’s actually in my Top 3 finds for the entire year! It was in y’alls Top 5 for 2 months in a row as well. It’s truly an incredible product.
It makes my under-eye area appear brighter, more radiant, and more youthful. TRULY! The formula specifically targets common concerns of tired and dull eyes, such as under-eye darkness, fine lines, dryness, and puffiness.
Here’s what’s in it and what it does:
- Hyaluronic acid: helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
- Caffeine: targets puffiness and water retention.
- Pearlized pigments provide an instant brightening effect and create a radiant, glowing appearance.
- Peach coloring pigments neutralize blue undertones, helping to balance out skin tone and create a more even appearance.
- Peptites help smooth texture.
It’s really hard to capture how awesome the eye cream is in a picture, so you’re going to need to trust me. You can use it on its own on a fresh-faced day, but it also functions beautifully under makeup. I’m telling you, this eye cream is going to WOW you.
And just FYI: I don’t like concealer and never use it, but I think this eye cream not only does the job of an eye cream, but it also functions a bit like a concealer does. Here’s the difference though: it doesn’t settle into lines or crepiness (which is why I don’t like or wear concealer).
I obviously highly recommend this product. Like I said before, IT WILL WOW YOU.
So I use the Tinted Illuminated Eye Cream every morning, and I’m using the Retinol Supreme Eye Serum at night. You only need a teeny tiny bit of product, and putting it on via the cooling tip is so easy and convenient. Listen to this…
The addition of Saloprine 8 helps lock in moisture and has been clinically proven to increase moisture levels an astounding 6000% after 28 days of continued use.
I mean, that’s some good results. 🙂
My mom was really wanting to target her eye area, and she absolutely notices a difference in her overall eye appearance and swears they are smoother with less noticeable lines, less puffiness, and more youthfulness.
The Age Renewal Super Serum is another relatively new (to us) product that we are loving. My mom swears that the deep smile lines she has on each side of her face have been greatly reduced. She said she can still see them, but she can’t feel them like she used to. (She says she used to run her fingers over her face while watching t.v. and she could feel them. But not anymore!)
Out of all of the products in the Colleen Rothschild line, the Cleansing Balm is my favorite product by far. It totally changes the taking off your makeup game, and I’m telling you, you won’t even dread washing your face at night. I KNOW. That’s a big claim, but I stand behind it.
This balm truly has a cult following. For those of you that haven’t tried it yet, it’s different than any other cleanser I’ve ever used. First of all, I apply it to a dry face. I scoop out a small amount of the balm with dry hands and slather it on to my dry face. As I rub it on my face, the heat from my hands changes the balm into more of an oily texture and it just feels incredibly luxurious. It melts my makeup away, leaves my skin feeling amazing and hydrated, and the light citrus smell is PERFECT.
And listen, if you’re concerned about the price, don’t be! This jumbo tub will last most people around 6-9 months and at 30% OFF, that means this cleanser will only cost you somewhere between $8.45 and $12.60 a month. TOTALLY WORTH IT. Your skin will thank you.
Under the jar of the balm, you see a muslin cleansing cloth that comes with it. Made with 100% cotton, the Colleen Rothschild Muslin Cleansing Cloths provide a gentle way to exfoliate and enhance the overall cleansing experience. I just pop my cloth in the wash every several days.
And here’s the kicker, it’s so gentle that you can even open your eyes as you are using it!
After cleansing my face, I use the peel pads. I’ve been using the Glycolic Acid Peel Pads for several years now, and I absolutely swear by them. After adding them to my weekly routine years ago, I’ve never looked back.
So, what are they? Remember the Stridex pads we all used as teenagers? Well, these are the new and much improved version! While the Stridex pads were salicylic acid and more of an acne treatment, the CR pads are glycolic and lactic acid, both used for cell turnover.
AND I NEED ALL THE HELP WITH CELL TURNOVER THAT I CAN GET. #turnoverthosecellsbaby
These pads boast a spa-strength treatment formula that helps to help dissolve skin-clogging dirt and debris.
And listen to this… your skin’s natural renewal process will be enhanced as a result of the 10 percent blend of The Glycolic and Lactic Acids in the pads. The pads target fine lines, hyperpigmentation and imperfections and will reveal a fresher, brighter, more even complexion. YES, PLEASE!
Regularly $75, they are ONLY $60 right now with the STMT30 code.
I’m ALL ABOUT brighter skin and these pads really deliver. They are large, so I sweep the pad all over my face, neck, and chest after cleansing. There are 60 pads per order, so the jar lasts me 2 months. (I used to use a pad every 3-4 days, but I bumped up to using them every other day! I notice such a difference that I just want to always be using them.)
They are going to kick start your cell turnover into high gear and reveal brighter skin!
The Intense Hydrating Mask is an easy answer for skin that needs extra hydration. You apply it at night and let it sink in while you sleep. It gives a boost of highly concentrated hydration to tight, dry, rough or dehydrated skin. This treatment helps strengthen elasticity, leaving skin with a youthful suppleness and radiance. Just read the reviews if you want to know more. The reviews are fantastic.
The Micro Mineral Resurfacing Scrub is my very favorite mask to use. Whenever my skin is feeling dull or lackluster, I use this scrub to wake up my face and really brighten it right on up. After using it, my skin is SO SOFT and it truly does look healthier and more glowy. It refines texture, helps reduce clogged pores and brightens dull complexions by buffing away dead skin cells using the power of ultra-fine crystals. (This scrub can be found in the Exploration Collection kit.)
I don’t like to spend a lot of time or money on expensive spa treatments, but this scrub is like an at home alternative to professional microdermabrasian treatment.
Do you see the rose quartz pieces below? When I rub the scrub on my face, it feels like very very fine sand. It gently (but efficiently!) exfoliates and reveals newer and fresher skin.
IT’S AN INCREDIBLE PRODUCT. Regularly $60, it’s ONLY $48 right now with the code STMT30.
The Face Oil #9 used to be too much for my skin, but now I can’t imagine it not being a part of my nightly routine. Colleen touts it as the ultimate in skin luxury, and I have to agree. It improves radiance. RADIANCE! Who doesn’t want to increase their radiance?!?
I put 1 full pump in my hand with the Extreme Recovery Cream (also seen below) and apply it all over my face and neck. It hydrates and plumps like nothing else I’ve ever used. The Extreme Recovery Cream is thick, rich, and ultra-creamy. My skin absolutely drinks this special little cocktail up.
And I’m not the only one that swears by it in my family. My mom and sister do as well. Actually, they are both devoted users of many products in the line. My mom did a full review of her favorite products awhile back, and you can click HERE to read all of her thoughts. She’s added in new products since then, but it’s a comprehensive review of her routine at the time. My mom is in her mid 70s and looks AMAZING, so copying her skincare routine wouldn’t be such a bad idea.
The above products have all improved my skin. They are a perfect way to implement some self-care, and the results you see are going to knock your socks off.
MY HAIR CARE FAVORITES
When Colleen came out with her hair products, I knew I had to give them a try. I started using them, and I immediately noticed a difference. My hair was just better. Now I can’t live without them.
I’ve never really battled super dry or brittle hair; however, after having Carter my hair did change a bit and was not nearly as shiny or healthy as I felt it had been pre-pregnancy. It was then that I ditched the drugstore shampoo and conditioner that I’d been using my entire life (with no problems at all), and I started investing in better products for my hair. The beauty store products I started using back then definitely helped, and I was happy with my hair. I definitely thought they were worth the higher price because hair is important to me, y’all. Haha!
I love all the hair products except one. I just don’t love the shampoo.
I know people that do love the shampoo (like my mom), but I personally prefer a shampoo I’ve been using for a while now over the CR shampoo.
I’m crazy passionate about all of the products below!!!
The Daily Conditioner is their newest hair care product and it’s fantastic.
The REPLENISH & SHINE DAILY CONDITIONER is enriched with Baobab and Ivy Extracts to help protect and repair, transforming dull, brittle strands into strong, healthy hair. Starting at application, a complex blend of nourishing plant oils, including Poppy and Sacha Inchi Oil, offers instant slip and a daily infusion of hydration. The lightweight formula never feels heavy or weighed down.
I. LOVE. THIS. CONDITIONER.
It doesn’t weigh my hair down, but it still manages to be incredibly moisturizing. All of the products in the bundle work together to give you incredible hair, but even if you didn’t use any of the other products and only used this conditioner, you would still notice that the conditioner alone makes your hair shiny and soft. I’ve only been using this for a couple of months, but I’m already loyal to it.
And I know this shouldn’t really matter, but I happen to love the pale pink packaging. The products look pretty in your shower or on your bathroom counter, and I appreciate that!
Next up, the hair mask!
The QUENCH & SHINE RESTORATIVE MASK is a color-safe conditioning treatment to soften, detangle and revive all hair types without weighing your hair down. An ultra-rich blend of Kokum, Shea, Capuacu and Bacuri Butters quenches thirsty strands, enriching hair with nourishment and hydration. Argan and Moringa Oils smooth unruly split-ends and deliver a healthy-looking shine. Improved hair elasticity and strength help reduce frizz and texture, resulting in supremely soft, irresistibly touchable hair. This mask can be used daily as a conditioner or as an intensive weekly treatment.
So before they came out with the conditioner, I would use small amounts of this mask as my daily conditioner. In fact, I loved how my hair felt so much after using it that I was pretty sure I wouldn’t love the conditioner as much, and I would just continue to use this mask as my conditioner.
HOWEVER, I fell in love with conditioner too, and now I use the mask more as an intensive hair treatment. My goal is to use it once a week, but the truth is, I just use it when I have some extra time to spend in the shower. Instead of using just a tiny bit like I used to, I now use a good amount, massage it all over my head, and I like to leave it in for a bit to get the full benefit. I like to leave it in for a minimum of 5 minutes, but a couple of times I’ve even been known to get out of the shower and vacuum the house or something with it in before rinsing it out.
My mom loves the mask too. She absolutely SWEARS by this product and the serum that we’re going to talk about in just a minute.
Here’s my mom’s story with the hair products….
A couple of years ago she started noticing that her hair was “getting old” – her words, not mine. 😉
My mom has always had great hair, but she said it had all of a sudden started to become dry and brittle.
WELL. She swears that the mask and the serum completely revitalized her hair.
I called her yesterday to hopefully get a couple of quick quotes from her for today’s post and she went ON AND ON! Haha! I actually asked her “So you really think these products changed your hair too?” And she was all “I KNOW they changed my hair.” 🙂
She told me how before using the products she had noticed a while ago that “a chunk of hair on the left side of her head” had become “extra dull and dry”. She said that she started applying small amounts of the mask to her dry hair at night (specifically just to the patch that was giving her trouble), and when she would wake up in the morning the patch would be more hydrated and more manageable!
She also said that she when she first got the mask that she was using it every single time she washed her hair, but now she doesn’t have to use it nearly as often because her hair is in so much better shape now! She truly feels it has REPAIRED her hair. It doesn’t just LOOK better, but it IS better. It’s healthier!
Just look how thick, rich, and creamy the mask is.
And listen, the hair towel is NEXT LEVEL.
If you’re like I was, you might be like “It’s a towel. I have towels.”
But you don’t have this towel.
And if you don’t have this towel, you need this towel.
The SUPERLUXE MICROFIBER HAIR TOWEL lessens the amount of damage we place on our hair by cutting down on dry time. By removing excess moisture before styling, hair can be smoother, stronger and shinier. Benefits all hair types and textures.
I don’t know how or why this hair towel is better than other towels.
BUT IT IS.
If you’ve never used a hair towel, it’s simple. And just like the package says, it’s QUICK DRY, GENTLE, LIGHTWEIGHT, it REDUCES FRIZZ, and its ABSORBENT.
And I’m telling you, this towel is SERIOUSLY incredible.
After getting out of the shower, I brush through my hair a couple of times and wring out any excess water, then I wrap my hair up in this towel while doing my makeup. LADIES. The amount of water it absorbs out of my hair is shocking. It’s going to take tons of moisture out of your hair, but it’s not going to leave it frizzy.
It’s a game changer.
It stays in place so much better than a regular towel, and it dries the hair so much quicker and more thoroughly. And it definitely cuts down on the time you are going to have to use your hair dryer.
Time for the last product, which many of you might think is the star of the show.
The SMOOTH & SHINE HAIR SERUM helps banish frizz, tame flyaways and quench dry ends with the light-weight, transformative power of Cotton Seed Oil. Essential nutrients from Neem Oil and Hibiscus Oil help strengthen, protect and nourish hair so that it feels soft and looks amazing!
When I asked my mom how often she uses the serum, she said “I use the serum alllllllllllllllllll the time.”
When I asked her if she used it on damp hair or dry hair, she said “YES TO BOTH”! Haha!
She uses it on both damp hair AND dry hair. Like me, she uses it on her damp hair before drying it, but she also uses it on her dry hair after styling it.
I wash my hair every couple of days, and my favorite way to use the serum is to run it through my hair AFTER I’ve styled my hair with my rollers and /or a curling iron. It smells great, it tames fly aways, and it adds SO MUCH SHINE! My mom said after getting older, she now washes her hair much less frequently than she used to have to, but she says “the serum livens my hair up between washings and gives it the sheen that it needs.” But yes, she also works a little bit through her damp hair before she dries it with her hair dryer.
These products are the way to SUPER HEALTHY, SUPER SHINY, and MORE MANAGEABLE HAIR!
It’s time to GET OUR SHINE ON, Ladies!
These products have absolutely improved our skin and our hair. Give them a chance to change yours too!
And don’t forget to use the STMT30 code before checking out!
