Skin Care Travel Essentials FT. Colleen Rothschild

My Travel Skin Care Favorites

If you follow along on Instagram, you know I was recently in the New England Area. During the last few days of our trip, we stayed in the brand new Yotel Hotel in Boston, harbor side, which was an amazing experience. 

This post is in collaboration with and sponsored by Colleen Rothschild. 


While I took my Raden 28 inch suitcase with me, I have been trying to downsize because taking a huge suitcase is such a pain in the ass. When it comes to beauty and skin care, I would say that those two are always the ones that weigh the most. Pretty sure my makeup bag weighs 20 pounds on its own…but seriously. One of the best ways to downsize is to have travel size skin care, and it’s important that it’s your favorite skin care products. When your skin goes into a new place, it will likely freak out a bit due to the changes. That’s why I’m a big believer of using products you know work for your skin because otherwise you’re adding additional stress to it.

Colleen Rothschild has been one of my all time favorite skin care brands for years now, but I found they had a travel set which is absolutely perfect for taking all the skin essentials with you when you travel. It’s also cost-efficient considering Colleen is luxury!

This is a collective shot of the Colleen Rothschild Discovery Collection which is the perfect travel skin care set.


When it comes to taking makeup off at night, I always opt for a makeup remover wipe but then I really want to use a balm to cleanse my skin to its very core. This balm works well and is very moisturizing which is perfect for the drier skin that needs a little more TLC. It gives that spa-like experience without being overly greasy and obnoxious, making it quick and easy to get rid of the makeup.


When it comes to exfoliating, the dual enzyme polish is a great product for this. I like using a small dollop and gently spread it across my skin to do a gentle exfoliation. It’s not grubby and it doesn’t make my skin turn bright red, which is always ideal when it comes to exfoliation.


As a daily moisturizer, I love using the sheer renewal cream. It’s the absolute perfect consistency, and applies so easily. It’s also great underneath your makeup, and doesn’t make your makeup slide all around your face. This cream gives you that perfect weightless hydration while helping with new cell turnover. This in turn helps to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles, which I am all about as you know. 

The extreme recovery cream is absolutely perfect for skin that’s dehydrated, and seeking some additional TLC due to climate changes. For example if you’re going from a humid place to a dry destination, you would do well to pack the recovery cream. If you’re going to a beach destination where you’ll be in the sun for hours, and swimming in chlorinated water, it would also do you well to take the cream. It will help revitalize that skin when it gets super dry.

Because I live in a dry climate, I never leave for a trip without a face oil of some kind. I still get lots of questions about the use of oil when someone’s skin type is oily. While I am not a dermatologist, doctor or skin care expert, I’ve had a lot of practice with skin care products and many conversations with professionals regarding oils on oily skin. Mainly because I used to have the oiliest skin on the face of the earth. My explanation for face oil is that no matter what type of skin you have, you want to be applying face oil somewhat regularly especially if you’re in a dryer climate. Face oil from skin care companies is the oil you want to have on your skin, which will help your skin produce less of the oil it produces which is oil you do NOT want on your face. That greasy oil from your skin’s own production is what causes breakouts, but applying this face oil from Colleen Rothschild is not going to do that for you because you will apply a very light layer to your skin.


When it comes to a perfect mask on the go, the clarifying detox mask is perfect for pulling out the pollution, dirt, toxins, etc. which your skin is going to take in during your vacation. This will help keep your skin free of those toxins throughout your stay. I also find that if we have a nice dinner or a certain event planned, I really like doing this mask the night before or the day of a few hours before; that way my skin is detoxed and ready for a fresh layer of makeup for the event.

All of these products can be found in travel size in the Discovery Collection. In addition to all the products mentioned, you will find get this gorgeous makeup bag and a muslin cleansing cloth. The perfect set for all of your skin care needs, and it will take little to no room in your suitcase and it can go in a carry-on given everything is travel size friendly. The entire collection is $90, and you can always sign up for their newsletter to get 20% off your purchase making this set $72. Personally I think it's a steal, but it comes down to the value of skin care for you. 

I've been getting lots of messages asking me if I believe in skin care or is it's a hoax and we don't really need it. I wholeheartedly believe skin care is something you need in your life. Too many products aren't good for you, but using generic soap on your face is awful (again not a dermatologist) but the thought of using a bar of soap on my gentle skin sounds like a nightmare. Colleen Rothschild is genuinely a brand I love and would stand behind any day of the week. If you haven't tried her products yet, you're in for a treat.

I like everything in this travel bag! Taking care of skin while travelling is very important. I’ve never heard of this brand but I’m going to check it out. I love the packaging too!

It’s nice being able to take your favorite skin care brands with you in their original containers. I think it takes some of the stress out of travel when you have that familiarity.

All of these products look super amazing. Having a routine like this is so important for your skin.

These products sound amazing. I think it’s so important to take care of your skin. I can’t wait to check these products out.

I haven’t tried this brand of products. Im not a huge makeup fan so I typically don’t have to worry about taking very much with me. During the summer, I tend to break out more so I have to carry my acne meds with me.

I should try these out. My skin always needs help, especially when I travel. I usually just bring some Boots No 7 with me.

I honestly don’t care about my skin before. I just use whatever is available and now I realized how important it is to take care of my skin. I’ve been hearing good things about these products and I really want to try it.

What a wonderful collection to products for traveling, and can you ever go wrong with Colleen Rothschild? I’m especially excited to try the clarifying detox mask. Between the pool and the garden, my skin is in need of a little extra TLC! x

This looks like a really nice skincare line. While I usually hit a few of the items in the routine, I don’t always get all of those. It is nice that they have all of the basics covered. I’d love to try some of these.

There isnt one particular product that I need or want to try. I really do need to have the set of products so that I can get max results for my skin. I definitely travel with smaller sizes.

I would love to try these Colleen Rothschild products. I have been looking for a new line to try. My skin has been so dry since this winter.

That renewal cream sounds awesome. I would love to try that. It sounds like an awesome product line!

Coleen Rothschild is the best, and that renewal cream is one of my all-time favorite skincare products. Without a doubt! xx

Taking care of ones skin is so important. Seems like when I travel my skin takes a beating. This is per

So glad to hear you liked the post, and I am definitely a HUGE advocate of taking care of skin. It’s especially important when you travel due to the change in environment and all the additional variables added for the skin! xx

Colleen Rothschild is honestly the best, and truly one of my favorite skincare brands and let me tell you, I have tried almost all the skincare that’s been in circulation for at least a year. This is high-end luxurious product that is going to make your skin so hydrated, nourished and incredibly healthy. I’ve only had good results with them! xx

yAY! I love sets of beauty products. It saves me a lot of time trying to find everything I need for my skin care routine.

Yes to this! I go five star mostly because I don’t have to worry about anything when I get there and can carry way less stuff. I ONLY travel with ONE carry on sized bag, never bigger! I am with you finding travel sizes of your favorite stuff is the way to go. I have never tried Colleen Rothschild’s skincare line before I will have to check them out and give them a go! (I LOVE, love, LOVE exfoliation products both body and face!)

I’ve never tried this brand, but I would love to try it. That travel set looks fabulous. Will check it out!

I have never heard of these products. I always make sure that I bring my skincare with me at all time. I like to keep my skin moisturized, hydrated and healthy.

Having such this handy skin care essentials makes our traveling very much easier. Skin care products should not be missed out whenever I travel.

I love when I can find a product that has all of these four in a package. I seldom exfoliate but I love it when I do.

Oh yes. I make sure to carry my Skin Care kit anywhere I go. Can’t go without them. By the way, these are great products.

I persoanlly love also packing a travello? Have you heard of those. They allow you to take your favorite perfume without buying a travel size. The are compact and pass through airplane security easily!

I’ve been looking for some new skin care products. I may have to look into this brand!

We travel often and having a great product line that can be easily taken with us is important. I have not heard of this brand before. I need to check them out.

When I travel, I always look to pack with me my mini sized skin care essentials. The Discovery Collection from Colleen Rothschild looks very nice and practical, because it does have everything you could possibly need on vacation.

I love the purity collection from Philosophy, that is my go to skin care product routine. I have small tiny bottles like you have picture above that I take with me when I travel.

Now that the weather is so hot and humid here, I’ve really had to get serious with skin care. This is so helpful
