As a non stop traveler one of my favorite things to do when the Christmas season gets cranking is to pick up travel sized gift sets of my favorite products.

If you’ve been following this blog for a while then you will already know that I am an avid fan of Colleen Rothschild beauty products. I have been using Colleen Rothschild Beauty for a few years now, and although I keep full sizes of the products at home I also get the travel sized products to take on my Glam Italia Tours with me.
Right now Colleen Rothschild has some fantastic discounts happening for the run up to Christmas, both on full sized products and on gift sets. If there is something you want that isn’t already discounted you can use the code CORINNA20 at checkout and get 20% off. This code works year round, not just in the holiday season.
WHICH GIFT SETS SHOULD YOU TRY?
For travel or if you just wanted to try the products without committing to full sizes, I like the Discovery Kit. This gives travel sizes in the following products:
- Radiant Cleansing Balm, 30 ml (1 fl oz)
- Dual Enzyme Polish, 15 ml (0.5 fl oz)
- Clarifying Detox Mask, 15 ml (0.5 fl oz)
- Sheer Renewal Cream, 30 ml (1 fl oz)
- Extreme Recovery Cream, 15 ml (0.5 fl oz)
- Face Oil N°9, 4 ml (0.14 fl oz)
- Muslin Cleansing Cloth
- And a newly redesigned exclusive CR Travel Bag
The Discovery Kit has a $150 value but at the moment is on sale for $69. If you don’t see this post until after the sale has ended you can use my CORINNA20 code to get 20% off.
This summer I traveled Italy for just under 3 months, using the Quench and Shine Travel Essentials hair set, and it was fantastic. (Obviously across 3 months I went through more than one set)
At home I am never without my two hair hero products from Colleen Rothschild, the Quench and Shine Restorative Mask, which I use on my hair almost every time I shampoo it an the Quench and Shine Hair Serum. These two products make my thick, coarse, dry hair completly managable and really glossy and shiny. I also really love the smell of them – the fragrance is gorgeous.
This set is completed with the Quench and Shine Restorative Shampoo and the Protect and Perfect Styling Cream. These 4 products are everything you need for fabulous, bouncy hair, both at home and when you travel.
This set is normally $54 but at the moment it is on sale for $39. If you are reading this after the sale has ended you can still use CORINNA20 to get a discount.
WHICH OTHER PRODUCTS SHOULD YOU LOOK AT?
I have loved all the Collen Rothschild products I have tried. My skin tends to get really dry while I’m at home in Phoenix, but then turns to normal when I’m in Italy where the air is much more humid.
Wherever I am in the world I swaer by the Radiant Cleansing Balm, to the point I always have a spare in my bathroom closet.
This cleanser not only dissolves makeup, including the most stubborn waterproof mascaras and eyeliners, but it also gives your skin a beautiful deep cleanse. Most cleansers leave your skin feeling parched and pulled tight, but this one leaves your skin all glowy and supple. It’s an absolute game changer.
The regular pricing for Radiant Cleansing Balm is $65. It lasts a really long time. At the moment it is on sale for $49
I always use Face Oil Number 9 and I swear by the Hydrating Mask. At home where the air is so dry I mostly use the Extreme Recovery Cream (which isn’t that extreme – it’s just a really great moisturizer for dryer complections) and all summer long in Italy I use the Sheer Renewal Cream mositurizer. It is perfect both for normal climates and for when it’s really humid out. This moisturizer is a game changer. Although the other three are not discountd (unless you use my CORINNA20 code) the Hydrating Mask has a massive discount right now, so I’m buying up a couple of them.
Another of my favorite products is the Black Tourmaline Face Primer. This one is also not discounted but you can use my code for 20% off. I use the Black Tourmaline primer both when I do my own makeup, and also I have one in my pro makeup artist kit. Don’t be put off by the black color – once on your skin it evens skin tone, diminishes fine lines and wrinkles and also protect the skin from environmental pollutants.
