Summer Skin Care

Summer Skin Care! Take the best care of your face and skin this summer with Colleen Rothschild products! They work naturally to bring out your best skin! I’ve been on a hunt for skin care that actually works for sometime now – like the last decade of my life! I’ve tried so many products I can’t even count them, hah! Here is the thing – I don’t have normal/ perfect skin. My skin is dry, acne prone, dull, and starting to show signs of wrinkling (sorry I smile all the time & raise my eyebrows 😉 ) Every acne product I’ve tried has killed my skin (aka: dry flake mess) and every moisturizing line has caused outbreak central. I’ve tried home products and natural remedies. I’ve tried it all.  In the Summer I tend to be a little more hopeful about my skin – I think I have the sun & air that has more moisture to thank for that. But over all, my skin care history has caused me to look at skin care with a pessimistic eye – does it really clear acne? Keep skin soft? Help with wrinkles?

With summer coming up (& a slew of stress pimples popping up since I am also fighting a season of stress), I started a new summer skin care regiment with Colleen Rothschild products. I was a bit hesitant because they advertising that their products can be used daily and are great for any skin type – young, aging, oily, or acne-prone. I am all those in one 😉 yet never really found something that could do all that. After one day I started noticing results. Like in big ways too – my skin actually looked healthier all around. Brighter, softer, and evener.

Radiant Cleansing Balm

When I put this on my face the first time, I couldn’t believe it was actually cleaning because it felt so nourishing. However, it clears congested pores and dissolves make up revealing fresh, clean, and radiant skin. A unique blend of Loofah Seed and Moringa Oil improves your skin by renewing the outer-layer skin cells! I’ve never loved a face wash more. Also the great smell makes washing my face restful – like a mini facial! I’ve been using this every night before bed.

Salicylic Treatment Complex

Acne cream has been something I’ve bought for the last 10+ years. I always have a problem area that needs a dab. I’ve also tried so many kinds and narrowed it down to ones that don’t work and ones that work better. This falls into the ones that work category! It contains Niacinamide and Willow Bark, a natural source of Salicylc Acid, which work together to tackle the appearance of large pores, discoloration and rough texture, while promoting clear skin! I had four huge problem spots when I started and they all significantly gone down and healed in a short amount of time. I’ve been dabbing on during the day as needed and after I wash my face.

Clarifying Detox Mask

Because I struggle with blackheads & acne, this detox looked like just the boost I needed. The activated charcoal and French Kaolin Clay go straight to work, detoxing pores and leaving behind a more balanced complexion, while pure Micronized Silver helps keep bacteria at bay. I’ve been using this about once a week or on problem areas (looking at you chin & forehead.)

Sheer Renewal Cream

Having a moisturizer is super important to me here in Colorado.  I love that it is oil-free & provides continuous, weightless hydration and promotes new cell turnover to help minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles. I’ve been putting it on before bed and waking up with a more refreshed look!

As a Colorado girl, I’ve grown up making sure my face has sunscreen on it. I’m not sure if we are closer to the sun or our atmosphere is thinner or what, but just a little time outside can burn your face. I’ve been putting on this SPF every morning to keep my skin healthy!

  • These products sound awesome! I’m definitely needing to change up my skincare routine since pregnancy is making me break out WAY more!

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! And girl. I am totally serious when I say these products are a game changer. For once in my life I don’t feel like I am killing my skin to make it better! lol. I would hands down recommend them! And the ingredients are totally safer around baby!

  • I’ve been looking for some new skincare products to try – might just have to look into these. Thanks for sharing!

    • Oak & Oats

      You really should! Like I don’t say this ever but I LOVE these products. The ingredients are real and my skin is being revived. I keep talking about it with my husband! lol.

  • Jen

    Oh I want that Detox Mask!!

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! It is so nice. The best mask I’ve ever tried. hands down. lol

  • These products sound really great! I’m always telling friends and family how important it is to routinely wash and moisturize to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy!

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! So true. and I wasn’t the best at it for a long time! But now since my skin feels healthy when I wash it not like I put a bunch of chemicals on my face, it is much easier to be faithful in taking care of my skin! Also, I’m almost 28. I need to start now! haha

  • These sound really great and I’m seriously looking into them!

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! Let me know if you try them out!!

  • This is awesome! I feel like I’m always in that same boat when it comes to my skin! #thestruggle I’ve been using Rodan+Fields, but recently the breakouts have been coming back! I may have to try this! It sounds lovely! Thanks for sharing!

    • Oak & Oats

      I tried R+F too and I felt pretty meh about the products. I saw an improvement but it also seemed to be hard on my skin and the pimples still kept sneaking back. It was actually what I was using right before I started this and instantly the pimples I had started fading and my skin was brighter & fresher than it had ever looked with R+F. I know so many people swear by the products but I just don’t think the ingredients are the best! Anyways, I can totally relate and I recommend these products highly!

  • I’ll have to look into this! I’m mostly out of all my stuff.

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! I love it!

  • How nice there are so many products in this line! And I have wrinkles, too, from making ridiculous faces (sometimes intentionally….ha!)

    • Oak & Oats

      hahah! Me too! The ridiculous faces lines!!

  • It’s so great when you find something that works! I’m always trying out new products. 🙂 That mask looks great.

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! It is so fun!

  • This post is so intriguing. I have been blessed with pretty low-maintenance skin. I honestly think it comes with the lack of hair as I don’t have anything touching the skin on my face on a regular basis. But these products look very promising for you!

    • Oak & Oats

      That is so nice! And yes, my skin is like the opposite 😉 but I am LOVING them!

  • Ah I couldn’t sympathize more with struggling to find acne products that don’t leave my skin a dry, cracked mess! I need to check this line out ASAP!

    Xoxo,

    • Oak & Oats

  • amy

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! You should try it Amy!! So great!
