My Simple 3-Step Nighttime Skincare Routine | GIVEAWAY!

My simple 3-step night time skincare routine, Erin busbee,, fashion and beauty blogger, featuring Colleen Rothschild skincare


In case you didn’t already know, my family is planning a gap year.
We are moving to Telluride, Colorado for one full school year.
Our journey begins in late June and then (in theory) we come back to south Texas the following summer.
(I’m not really sure what we will decide to do, but we are keeping our  house.)

In order to gear up for our trip, I need to beef up my skincare routine.
When I’m in Colorado, my skin gets SOOO dry!
And, it’s dry already. It even starts cracking and scabbing.
Sooo… I’m back to using one of my absolute favorite lines… Colleen Rothschild!

Colleen Rothschild

It’s not too often that you get to sit down and talk with the ACTUAL creator of a skincare line!!
Whelp, I DID… just last weekend!!
One of my brand meetings at the Reward Style Blogger Conference last weekend was with Colleen.
(Check out my “What I Wore” to the conference blog here.)
Colleen is STUNNING. Like ridiculously gorgeous.
And, of course, as you might imagine…She has amazing skin!
I peppered the poor thing with questions.
I’ll get more into her expert skincare advice in a minute, but first let’s get to the nighttime STEPS.
You all know how I LOVE a system! And, this one is super easy…

Keep scrolling for the steps and an awesome GIVEAWAY!!

My nighttime skincare routine starts with radiant cleansing balm by colleen Rothschild

Step #1 | Radiant Cleansing Balm

It took me a while to get used to a cleansing balm.
And, now I am HOOKED.
It is so gentle, hydrating and smells divine.

How To Use

After you apply a generous layer of balm all over your DRY face (that part takes some getting used to)…
Gently rub the balm off with a warm, wet muslin cloth.
The soft cloth comes with your balm.
Your makeup will come off very easily.

Colleen’s Tip… 

“For a spa-like treatment, apply a thick layer of balm all over your face and place warm muslin cloth over top for 10 minutes.”

I love her tip above. I tried it, and fell asleep.
It would be a great way to meditate too!
(I’m all about multi-tasking.)

Use code “BUSBEE20” to get 20% off the balm!


Coleen Rothschild Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum for skin over 40, anti-aging, gentle,

#2 | Mandelic Acid

If your skincare were a recipe, this is the secret sauce!
The Mandelic acid is the most gentle Alpha Hydroxy Acid.
So… you get the exfoliation without irritation.
It’s also gentle enough to use every evening.
I even put it under my eyes!

The smell is SO good.
And, your skin will start glowing pretty much right away!

Coleen Rothschild Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum for skin over 40, anti-aging, gentle, wonderful serum, makes skin glow!

How to Use

After you cleansed your face with your balm,
Apply the Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum with a cotton round or your fingers…
on a DRY face.

Colleen’s Tip:

“Apply a drop to the back of your hands to help them look the same age as your face!”

Save 20% on the serum with code, “BUSBEE20”


Coleen Rothschild Extreme Recovery Cream for skin over 40, anti-aging, gentle,

#3 | Extreme Recovery Cream

You bust out the Extreme Recovery Cream if you want intense moisture.
It is REALLY hydrating, and packed with good stuff like hyaluronic acid…
This will be my GO-TO in Colorado!
And I DO plan to use it both in the morning and evening.
If you are oily, you may find this cream too heavy, and should try the “Sheer Renewal Cream” instead.

How To Use

The Extreme Recovery Cream is very simple to use.
After cleansing with your balm and applying the serum, gently massage the cream into your face, neck and chest.
I love to use any extra cream on my hands as well.

Colleen’s Tip

“For those days when you need a little extra TLC, add a drop of Facial Oil No. 9 to your Extreme Recovery Cream.”

I will definitely be adding the facial oil to my regular routine once we get to Colorado.
You can also use the facial oil alone, and skip the recovery cream.

Don’t forget to use code, “BUSBEE20” to save 20%.
You will also automatically be entered to win a $150 gift card!

  1. I’ve heard such great things about CR products and truth be told, I need to incorporate a more adult skincare line into my routine. I’m purchasing the clarifying detox mask on CR. I’ve heard such great reviews about it. I’m following both accounts on IG and can’t wait to see who wins! That’s for the opportunity!

    1. I’ll keep you posted, Emily!! Thanks for entering. Let me know what you think of the mask… Erin xo

  2. Hello, I am new here! Will you be sharing details on your gap year? It sounds like something me and my husband have considered so I would love details. Thanks!

  3. Hi. I found your site about one week ago and really enjoy learning about styles and makeup. I am 45 and have been thinking that my style is very boring so I am loving your videos. I was excited to see this post today. I had read about Colleen Rothschild products on your site and on msgoldgirl. I entered so I’m crossing my fingers to win! I can’t wait to get my Colleen Rothschild Discovery Kit with fun products to try this line and I also ordered the Madelic Acid!
    Thank You for all the helpful information! I love your style and personality! Thanks again for having a great site with info for us in the 40s!
