Rodan + Fields Dermatology Review + Giveaway

Skin care is always improving. Every day, there are new advances in the way we are being able to take care of our skin for a healthier, younger, more glowing self. So when I got together with one of my most favorite and personal friends, Crystal, she gave me the opportunity to try out something new.

Rodan & Fields has been a pretty popular name lately. Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, the creators of Proactiv® Solution, launched Rodan + Fields to extend their vision of bringing dermatology based skincare solutions to everyone. Together, Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields received the coveted Cosmetic Executive Women’s Award in 2003 for “Changing the direction of the industry” with their creation of Proactiv® Solution. 

They started their own line and put it in high end retail only like Norstromes....then they became the #1 clinical skin care line sold! They started to notice that their product was only selling so good because of word of mouth due to the great results; so they broke free from the counters and decided to do direct selling so they could reward the people passing on the product by word of mouth. They just launched into Canada in August and will soon be launching into Asia and Europe! You can read more about the doctors here.

Easy to use systems to transform your skin

The skin care philosophy:
To see real changes in your skin, you must use real ingredients. Our product development strategy is to combine OTC (over-the-counter) ingredients and active cosmetic ingredients to create safe and effective formulations. We take safety and efficacy very seriously, and we know that it takes the right concentration of an OTC drug or active cosmetic to achieve the desired result without adverse effects. This understanding and expertise comes from Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields’ years of experience in treating their patients, and they are the inspiration for the products we create.

After going through the website, I found out there is so much great skin care products offered and available. It seems like everyone can find something that would fit their problem areas perfect. 

I was able to try out the ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion PasteREDEFINE Night Renewing Serum, and the REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum. Crystal warned me that once I try it, I will fall in love with it. And you know what? She was right! And of course I will tell you why....

I received my sample kit in the cutest little bag. Inside was the listed products above as well as a sheet on instructions for using each of them and a list of ingredients.
 So the first step is the actual micro-dermabrasion paste. It's a pretty thick, white paste that feels very course. It really feels like it can deep clean. The Micro-Dermabrasion Paste is a high-glide, oil-free formula designed to promote maximum gentle exfoliation. Use intermittently to enhance cell turnover and improve skin tone and texture.
While applying this, I used my fingers and yes, the texture was very course on my skin. But I didn't mind. In fact, it made it feel more fresher and smoother than other micro-dermabrasion products I have used in the past. The smell was very pleasant. It didn't have a "chemical" smell to it. It also left my skin feeling incredibly soft, smooth, and very moisturized. You could feel the softness on the skin's surface. It wasn't overbearing either. And my skin felt and looked tighter immediately.

The second step was using the night renewing serum. It is a clear, light feeling serum that is applied all over the face. The Night Renewing Serum capsule contains a potent, proprietary blend of peptides and retinol to visibly improve skin texture and firmness and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Retinol, favored by dermatologists for decades, improves skin texture and minimizes the appearance of pores. Patented time-release technology increases skin’s receptivity throughout the night while reducing potential irritancy.
I was told that this will feel like silk on your face. And boy does it. It felt AMAZING!!! It made my face feel like soft butter and as funny as that sounds, it felt great. So silky and smooth indeed. I was totally loving this product. It is addicting.

The final product was the lip renewing serum. It is a clear serum and a little goes a long way. Just apply to your lips for kissably soft lips. The smooth, naturally full, defined lips that nature gives us will, over time, become thinner, flatter, less rosy and more lined. Reclaim or maintain the lips of youth with REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum. Each peptide and antioxidant-rich capsule helps lips retain natural moisturizing factors, smooths lip texture and reduces the appearance of lip wrinkles.
I really loved the way my lips felt after this. They were smooth and felt moisturized without the need to use anything else on my lips such as a lip balm. And the best part is, it lasted for hours. I went to bed and still woke up with smooth feeling lips.

So after trying out these products, I must say, I totally love them. They really made a difference just after one use. So I rarely ever show a photo of myself without makeup. And if I do, it is almost always retouched a bit because of some skin issues I am embarrassed about. But I am going to be brave and show a snapshot of an untouched, unedited, no makeup photo of myself right after using these three products.

So I felt a little more confident to post this photo because some of the flaws had vanished. My skin felt immediately tighter which is something I really have an issue with since I have a bit of scaring on my face.

And because of the scars, I have the appearance of very uneven skin tone, which this seemed to have brightened up my appearance. And the fact my face constantly feels rough and this made it feel much more smooth. I wish I would have taken a "before" photo. But I didn't think about it until afterwards. But if you want to see some more real life photo results of people who have tried this, click the video below.

I took the quiz for fun and it said that I would most be likely a great fit for the Redefine products. I think that's great since skin care isn't always a "one size fits all" type of thing. It's great to have something a bit more personalized that goes with more of a focus on your needs and wants for your face.
