Review Colleen Rothschild Skincare

Hi again all- 
If you follow my You Tube page you would have already seen a review I did on the Colleen Rothschild Skincare line.  
Now as we all know I am not the best writer around and I do much better speaking my thoughts then writing them.  So with that said I will say that yoiu are better off watching my video review on these items because there is so much information tree about them.  I will try and give you some basic information on here as I go.  
Colleen did provide a 20% off coupon code for anyone to purchase that is good for the week only.  So stick up now.  I am!

Discount code 20% off your order- LisaSZ20
Valid- May12-May19
Shipping is always free 

I will explain the products I use beginning with my nighttime routine.  
The first item I use at night is the radiant cleansing balm.  This stuff is different from anything I have ever tried and it is amazing.  I will not ever go without it!  
 Then I use the Retinol Treatment and smooth it all over my face, neck and chest.  It is very smooth and easy to spread
 Next ist he eye cream.  Now I have tried a ton of eye creams but this is the first time that I have received comments that my eyes look younger.  What?  Give me a tub of this stuff then please.
 I then use the Sheer Renewal Cream and it is amazing for oily combination skin.  It dries down to a powder like finish.
The last item is the No9 Oil and I was very very hesitant on this item, but I gave it a shot and surprisingly it did not break me out or cause me to get more oily.  
 One or twice a week also their is the Clarifying Detox Mask. Now I am not very good at remembering to put a mask on, but I am told that doing this will also reduce oils.  So I am giving it a shot to remember.  It left my skin feeling very clean and soft.
 In the morning I begin with the Gel cleanser.  This cleanser is super smooth and leaves your skin feeling refreshed and ready for makeup!
 The first item in the morning is the Vitamin C Treatment.  I have always used Vitamin C at night, but this seems to be helping in the morning with oils also.  It is made to reduce dark spots.
 I use the same eye cream as nighttime.
Then the same sheer renewal Cream.  I think I want to also try the heavier night cream and see how that goes.  
I also received the Salcydic treatment,  I have not yet tried this.  It is made to be used on oily skin in the summer in place of one of the other treatments in order to reduce oil and help with pores.  I am excited to give it a try! 

The skincare is based on seasons and how your skin reacts more that on the type of skin you have.  Which is an awesome change because my skin does change from season to season.  

SO overall.  I love the products, the company and what they stand for.  

Please let me know if you have any questions or is you have any questions you would like for Colleen to answer she has been responding on my YT video.

Review Marc Jacobs Face !! and Concealer Brushes

Hi again all-
I realized after I purchased the Marc Jacobs Concealer brush that I don't think I have ever reviwed the foundation brush which is very similar in shape.  It has quickly become a favorite brush of mine and I have even considered purchasing another.  However the price has been by draw back.  So, I think I will wait until another Sephora VIB sale to purchase another!
I do love the foundation brush, but I wasn't sure what I would think of the concealer brush since i do tend to not be drawn towards concealer brushes.  I was surprised at how much I really did enjoy it.  Would I repurchase another like the foundation brush, no, but I will enjoy this one.
I love the look and feel of the MJ brushes.  The Blush one was the only one I didn't like and returned. The others are all amazing.  My biggest issues are that the name wears off on the handle and the pricing.  Other than that they are amazing and so easy to use and clean.
Here are some close up photos.  Yes the brushes are dirty- I used them that day, but also I tried to photograph them clean and they were very hard to see on a white background.
The concealer brush
The only place I think you can purchase these is at Sephora.

I hope you found this review helpful and please let me know if you have any questions.
