Enter on the bottom of today’s post, but make sure you also read below about the incredible deals happening today!
In addition to the giveaway, I’ve teamed up with Colleen Rothschild to bring y’all an AMAZING deal on my very favorite Colleen products. I shared this deal once before back in the summer, and y’all went nuts over it. AND WE’VE BROUGHT IT BACK!
Can you guess what it is?
Today’s FANTASTIC DEAL is for the JUMBO size of the famous cleansing balm!!! The Jumbo Cleansing Balm is normally $95, even though it’s a $130 value. BUT TODAY YOU CAN GET IT FOR $69! This is an absolutely incredible deal.
Out of all of the products in the Colleen Rothschild line (and I use and love MANY of them), the cleansing balm is my favorite product by far. It totally changes the taking off your make up 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.
I’ve received countless messages (seriously, COUNTLESS) from y’all about all of Colleen’s products, but the cleansing balm is at the tip top of the list. Here’s just one example:
Hi, Sheaffer! After years of hearing you talk about your love for the CR cleansing balm, I finally bought some for myself when the jumbo tub was on serious sale. I cannot believe this product. You are right in that I actually look forward to washing my face, and it’s never felt cleaner or softer. And it looks so supple and hydrated! My husband’s family came to visit, and I made my mother in law and sister in law try it. They are going to buy it now too. Anyway, thanks for the recommendation, and I’ll definitely be trying other CR products as well. – Meredith
Yay, Meredith! I’m so glad to hear that you love the balm just as much as I do! 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. And 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.
Not only do I use it to cleanse my face morning and night, I also use it as a type of leave on mask when I’m battling dry skin. If my skin is dry, normal moisturizer tends to just sit on the surface, and my skin won’t absorb it enough to be properly moisturized. But when used as a mask, the cleansing balm hydrates my skin like nothing else can, and I cannot recommend it enough.
This jumbo tub is a little over twice the size of the regular size balm, and right now it’s ONLY $4 more. This deal is truly incredible, especially when you know that this tub will most likely last you 9-12 months. It’s 100% worth the investment.
GIVE THE GIFT OF SKIN CARE TO A LOVED ONE
I’m the most excited about this Jumbo Cleansing Balm deal today for 1 main reason….if you already have and love this balm, IT MAKES AN EXCELLENT GIFT.
Think about it, if you already have AND LOVE this balm, wouldn’t it be so exciting to gift it to a loved one? If you’re like me, you love sharing products you love with people you love, and this deal is just too good to pass up. You’ll be changing their daily routine by giving them this balm, and you will be introducing them to a product that they will become devoted to, just like we are!
SO….if you didn’t take advantage of the deal for yourself before….TAKE ADVANTAGE TODAY! I’m telling you, you won’t regret it.
And if you are already a devoted user, grab one for a loved one or two for a gift! (I know I have a couple of friends that are buying these as Christmas de3gifts for their moms and their sisters.)
Also good to consider, the jar and the box make a lovely gift presentation. The packaging is beautiful, and it’s obvious that it’s a luxury product.
In addition the jumbo cleansing balm deal today, the entire site is 20% OFF (well get to some recommendations in a minute), AND there are some other special deals as well!
The Cocoa Bean Cleansing Balm is ONLY $32 today, regularly $65. This balm is a little messy because of it’s color, but I absolutely love it. It’s so luxurious and indulgent!
The Tumeric Brightening Mask is ONLY $24 today, regularly $48.
The Pomegranate Resurfacing Mask is ONLY $32 today, regularly $48.

And since the entire site is 20% OFF, let’s review some of our favorite products.
MY MOM’S FAVORITE COLLEEN ROTHSCHILD PRODUCTS
When I did a post with my mom last month, y’all were FLOORED (for good reason) that my mama is 73 years old!!!
So many of you asked what she does to look so great! Well, she stays pretty active, eats healthy for the most part (but the woman can put away pizza and french fries like you wouldn’t believe), drinks lots of water, AND USES COLLEEN ROTHSCHILD SKIN CARE PRODUCTS!
I called my mom and told her I needed her to take a picture of the products on her counter. I wanted y’all to see that she truly uses and loves the products. You can see that she’s just about out of some of them and needs to go ahead and take advantage of today’s sale!
I also asked her what her RIDE OR DIE products are. I actually asked her to pick her Top 3, but she said she couldn’t pick just 3.
Right now she is absolutely swears by the face oil, the extreme recovery cream, the retinol eye serum, the mandelic acid radiance serum, and the hair products (which we’ll talk about in a second.). Click HERE to hop over to the site, read the detailed descriptions of the products and the issues they are targeting, and definitely take a minute to take a look at the reader reviews. You can navigate the site by the issues you want to target by clicking the SKIN CONCERNS tab at the top.
My mom actually 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.
And here’s the truth, she used to not bat an eye at spending serious bucks on skincare. Like, SERIOUS bucks. She felt like her skin was important and it was worth the money to take care of it. However, after my dad retired, she started to become more cautious about the money she was spending, and she was disappointed that her skin wasn’t looking as great as it had in the past.
The CR products revived her skin over two years ago, AND SHE CONTINUES TO BE A DEVOTED USER.
Colleen’s hair products are the newest addition to my mom’s arsenal. A couple of months ago my mom was complaining to me and my sister about how her hair was “just getting old“. She said it was dry, not as shiny as it used to be, and frizzy. At the time, Conner was already using (AND LOVING) the CR hair products, so she let my mom borrow them for a couple of days. My mom immediately noticed a difference after the first use, and now she swears by them.
She says she uses the Quench and Shine Restorative Mask on wet hair. She just massages a little bit in, and she doesn’t even rinse it out all the time. She feels like it does a really great job repairing her damaged hair. She uses the Smooth and Shine Hair Serum on hair that is already styled. She rubs a little in to reduce frizz and add shine.
MY FAVORITE COLLEEN ROTHSCHILD PRODUCTS
If you haven’t seen it before, you need to check out my Colleen Rothschild Told Me To post! That’s right, I told Colleen my personal skin issues and concerns, and she personally recommended a routine for me!
Let’s wrap things up by talking about my favorite new product: the Micro-Mineral Resurfacing Scrub. If you’re like me and don’t do professional microdermabrasion, this is a great alternative for you! I know it is for me! Do you see those little pink particles in the product? They must be magical unicorn horn dust because my skin has never felt so soft. After 1 use, I walked into the family room and insisted Chris rub my cheek. He was seriously impressed too and was like, “WOW. That IS soft.”
The pink particles feel like really tiny bits of very fine sand, but apparently it’s rose quartz combined with additional mineral nutrients to gently exfoliate and even skin texture. I mean, MAYBE. But I’m pretty sure that unicorn dust is in there somewhere. Right after cleansing with the cleansing balm, I pat my face dry, and then apply a small amount of the scrub in circular motions on my face. I don’t press hard, but I do lots of circular motions all over, and then I rinse with water and then pat dry again. And POOF. Baby soft skin. Correction…baby soft skin with improved brightness. Ladies. It’s soooooooooooooo good. It’s right up there with the cleansing balm!!!!!
Then I apply the Micro-Mineral Smoothing Toner. It’s different than any toner I’ve ever used before. It’s thicker and creamier, almost lotion like. It further softens and conditions the skin, leaving it balanced and ready for the next step in your skin care routine.
POST REVIEW AND READER REVIEWS
Let’s review: the JUMBO Cleansing Balm is an INCREDIBLE VALUE right now (ONLY $69!). The normal size version is 3.3 fl. ounces and $65. The jumbo version (pictured above) is 6.8 fl oz, a little more than twice the size, and with today’s deal it’s only $4 more right now than the regular size!!! And with that price, free shipping is included for U.S. orders. WOW! Treat yourself. You will not regret it.
And if you already treated yourself, treat somebody you love!
And it’s not just me that loves it, I encourage you to read all of the feedback from STMT readers below. Recurring words and themes include: gentle, hydrating, heavenly, glowing, moisturizing, soft, and CLEAN.
I asked for more feedback yesterday, and I received tons of responses. I’m sharing just a handful here!
Hi, Kate! I would say that the balm is typically the gateway product to the rest of the Colleen Rothschild lineup.
I hear this ALL THE TIME.
Kimberly, my mom absolutely swears by the face oil.
Yes. Yes. Yes. My face is always baby soft after using it! And again, it’s not just the balm that y’all love.
I know it’s hard to believe, but even after years of using the balm, I truly continue to look forward to washing my face.
Yes, I love the mandelic acid radiance serum too! SO GOOD. It really brightens the skin!
I hear the word “silk” over and over again from readers! Love it!
It’s so hydrating it’s almost unbelievable.
EVERY. DANG. PENNY.
So many readers with sensitive skin issues say that the balm has been a game changer for them.
Amy, it reallllllllllllllllly does just melt into your skin!
I love that you said this, Kim. And your teenage son? Awesome!
Yep, I look forward to it too!
Erica, your message really got me thinking……
YOU ARE EXACTLY RIGHT! THE CLEANSING BALM IS MOST DEFINITELY A MUST HAVE!
So, right before 2019 ends, we’ve got a new MUST HAVE ALERT! This is obviously a product that I’ve been talking about for a couple of years now, and I’m not sure why I haven’t made it a MUST HAVE until now. Because it is 100% a MUST HAVE in my life.
I’m really hoping if you’ve never taken the plunge before that this MUST HAVE ALERT makes you realize how serious I am about this product. In 7 years of blogging, I’ve named under 15 MUST HAVES, so this is a big deal!
Click HERE for the cleansing balm. And remember, it’s on SUPER SALE right now!
And just because, I’ve got some pajamas and lounge wear that would be perfect to wear while applying masks and just having a “me night” at home!
Gingerbread cookies, snowflakes, Christmas trees, and polar bears all come together for a DARLING pair of thermal pj pants. And I love the hot pink band around the waist and the ankles.
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium in the top and a small in the leggings.
Look at this absolutely darling check!
I’m wearing a medium in both the top and the bottom. I definitely need a medium in the top, but I would prefer a small in the bottoms.
Click HERE to see them in a mirror selfie.
And check out this adorable jogger set! I’m wearing a medium in both the top and the bottom. And again, I need a medium in the top, but I would prefer a small in the bottoms. (The joggers look like they fit in this picture, but I have them pinned back a bit to show the desired fit.)
I think the “Take It Easy” sentiment in the colorful letters is too cute.
Click HERE to see them in a mirror selfie.
And let’s not forget the Amazon pajamas! I’ve owned them for a little over a year now…the same pair..and I still love them…and they are still in excellent condition.
I’m wearing the dark blue stripe, but they come in tons of colors. As always, I ordered a medium in the pajamas because I never want to be wearing pajamas that are too snug. The mediums in the bottoms are quite big on me, but I do think I require a medium in the top for it not to pull. If you have a smaller chest, I think you could stick with your regular size and still have room.
I’m very impressed with the quality on these. They are VERY soft, stretchy, and comfy.
THAT’S IT FOR TODAY. A huge thank you to Colleen for partnering up with me and Shay for the post and the giveaway! Hopefully you crossed some more names off your list. I’m telling you, if you gift Colleen Rothschild products, you will be a hero on Christmas morning AND THE REST OF THE YEAR!
AND MAKE SURE YOU COME BACK TOMORROW. We’ve got some great new content, a new awesome giveaway, and today’s winner will be announced!
