Plus YouTube Video Review
Let’s face it, it’s not often that a beauty product not only delivers on promises, but leaves you with an unexpected surprise bonus to two common beauty problems (short, stubby eyelashes and eyebrow loss). But that’s exactly what happened when we were sent an intriguing cleanser to try.
Colleen Rothschild Beauty was kind enough to send us a jar of her most popular product ~ Radiant Cleansing Balm to review. As we like to do here at FCO50, we asked for an interview to bring you the inside scoop on this product and we appreciate Colleen taking time out of her busy schedule to agree.
We did our product review two ways, you can view our YouTube video above or read on for more. Click HERE to order or see the rest of the Colleen Rothschild Beauty line.
THE INTERVIEW WITH COLLEEN ROTHSCHILD
FCO50: What sets your product line apart from others?
COLLEEN: I spent 20+ years behind the scenes in skincare manufacturing before stepping out and launching this line. So I have decades of knowledge on ingredients that stand the test of time and breakthrough technology that provides real results. Our products are a blend of potent plant botanicals and advanced scientific ingredients from around the world, and every one is formulated without harmful chemicals like parabens and SLS/SLES Sulfates.
FCO50: What is your most popular product?
COLLEEN: Definitely the Radiant Cleansing Balm! The product is so different from others on the market because it truly delivers a spa-like experience in your own bathroom.
FCO50: I’m absolutely obsessed with your Radiant Cleansing Balm! The scent is so relaxing and lovely, is it one specific ingredient that smells so good?
COLLEEN: The scent is a complex aromatic blend. The scent opens with a fresh burst of crisp Bergamot, followed by an exuberant heart of Lavender and Chamomile, and underscored by fresh Eucalyptus.
FCO50: Why did you decide to go with a product that is semi-solid, that then melts into the skin (love btw)?
COLLEEN: The oil based Balm breaks down and melts away dirt, debris, and makeup faster and more throughly. Plus, the skin’s natural oils are not stripped away, leaving the skin soft and balanced.
FCO50: My skin feels clean, and moisturized after use. Is there a secret ingredient that causes this wonderful result?
COLLEEN: The Moringa Oil and Black Seed Oil. They restore luminosity and combat dehydration.

REVIEW ~ COLLEEN ROTHSCHILD RADIANT CLEANSING BALM
To be honest, I had reservations when I opened the jar of Radiant Cleansing Balm as my “mature skin” is used to creamy cleansers. This is the opposite of a traditional cleanser, and I thought to myself, hmmm, this should be interesting.
This golden-colored semi-solid, natural oil-based cleanser intrigued me the first time I felt it on my fingertips. It has a velvety smooth texture that literally melts on your fingers from your body heat. Then you rub it onto dry skin and that’s when the magic happens, my friends. It is absolutely non-irrigating to the eyes and gently dissolves makeup like a breeze, without stripping the natural oils from our skin.
Let’s start with the scent, because I couldn’t get over how much I loved the natural, botanical aromas that danced around my nose as I massaged this wondrous cleanser onto my skin. In fact, I loved it so much, it was one of my top questions for Colleen!
She explained Radiant Cleansing Balm contains a complex aromatic blend of natural ingredients, (Bergamot, Lavender, Chamomile and Eucalyptus) and for me, the most impressive part is that not one of these scents overpowers the others. It’s lovely, intoxicating and I actually, for the first time in my life, look forward to taking my makeup off at night.
I love the scent and feel of this product so much, I massage it all over my face and eyes and then leave it there while I brush my teeth etc. Here’s the unexpected bonus that came from just trying to enjoy the luxurious feel of this product on my face a bit longer…. my eyelashes have started to grow longer and my eyebrows are filling in (check out the video, you can see that I’m not wearing any eyebrow makeup at all)! I kid you not. I don’t know if it’s the black seed or moringa oil, but something is making my eyelashes and eyebrows happy!
HAS IT CHANGED MY SKIN?
Absolutely! My skin, which generally tends to be combination, feels moisturized, has a natural healthy glow (I think you can see that in the video) and in general, looks healthier. I also have to be very careful with the products I use because I am prone to milia (those small annoying white bumps that occur when pores get clogged by the wrong product ingredients) and I can happily attest to absolutely NO milia breakouts with Radiant Cleansing Balm ~ hurray!
WHAT WE LOVE
The smell is absolutely divine and the texture as your rub it into your skin feels absolutely luxurious.
♥ Gently dissolves makeup
♥ Doesn’t irritate eyes
♥ Natural ingredients
♥ Spa-like luxury experience at home
♥ Made my eyelashes and eyebrows grow!
NOT SO MUCH
♦ The cleanser needs a scooper so you aren’t dipping fingers into the jar
♦ $65.00 is a little high for the quantity (3.3 ounces) although they do run promotions (like right NOW ~ 20% off!) and shipping is free on orders over $49.00.
We’re putting this beauty must-have on our obsessed list! My skin is glowing, my eyelashes and eyebrows are growing and I’m never going to run out of this fabulous Radiant Cleansing Balm!
