I often talk about staying fit and healthy, but today, I’m talking about something slightly different; I’m talking about healthy skin. For about 3 months now, I’ve changed my skin care routine to Rodan + Fields. Today, I’m providing my honest review of Rodan + Fields Skin Care.
I haven’t put a lot of thought in skin care as much as I should have in the past, but since turning 40, I’ve been rethinking how I treat my skin since I started noticing fine lines (and maybe not so fine in some areas).
I was introduced to Rodan + Fields by my friend and neighbour Jen, who is a Rodan + Fields consultant. I had never heard of the brand before as it is somewhat newer here in Canada. If you are curious, you can look up Jennifer’s business page link: https://jreynders.myrandf.com/ca/
Rodan + Fields is a high end skin care line. They offer 4 different skin care lines: Redefine, Reverse, Unblemish and Soothe. Redefine is for those who are concerned with the appearance of lines, pores and loss of firmness (Me! Me! Me!)
So far I have tried 3 different products: REDEFINE Eye Cloths, REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream, and ENHANCEMENTS Miro-Dermabrasion Paste.
I’m going to warn you now, I make a terrible beauty blogger and I didn’t take any before or after pictures.
REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream
Let’s start with the REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream. This is one of their best sellers. If you do a quick google search, you’ll see lots of glowing reviews on this product.
According to the website
REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream combines powerful peptides to minimize the appearance of crow’s feet and help reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles under your eyes. This formula is ideal for maintaining the delicate skin around the eyes and special optical diffusers noticeably brighten the eye area
I was shocked when I first received this product to see how small it was. This 15 mL pot of eye cream is quite pricey but a bit of this product goes a long way. The eye cream is odourless so it’s great for those who have a sensitive nose.
The eye cream wasn’t quite the miracle in a jar I was expecting. It has made the skin around my eyes more supple and perhaps it has reduced my crows feet a bit. I don’t think it has brightened my eyes at all however. I’m hoping that with time, I will continue to see some improvements with fine lines and with dark circles.
REDEFINE Eye Cloths
Next up on my review of Rodan + Fields skin care is the REDEFINE Eye Cloths.
According to Rodan + Fields, the eye cloths
Gently remove makeup to reveal firmer, younger-looking skin around your eyes. REDEFINE Eye Cloths are a dual-purpose makeup remover, dissolving even the most stubborn eye liners and mascara while combating the visible signs of aging. Each cloth contains a unique blend peptides clinically tested to reduce the appearance of lines, under-eye wrinkles and puffiness. For best results, follow with REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream
These rich clothes with a soft smell were great. They wiped off all my waterproof makeup. I used them not just on my eyes but all over my face. They left my face feeling smooth, refreshed and moisturized. The downfall of the eye clothes is by far the price. I really can’t justify the price for 30 cloths and therefore I will be unlikely to buy these little beauties again!
ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste
I saved the best of Rodan + Fields for last. The Micro-Dermabrasion Paste is the bomb. According to the Rodan + Fields website:
ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste is a high-glide, oil-free formula designed to promote maximum gentle exfoliation. Use intermittently to help remove dulling, dead skin cells and improve skin tone and texture.
This is the only exfoliator I’ve tried that has helped my skin. I love this product so much that I have to restrain myself from using it every day. It leaves my skin feeling so smooth and healthy. Usually my skin is flaking during these dry winter days, however my skin is smooth right now. My pores seem smaller and even the tone of my skin has improved. As a bonus, since using this product, I find that my makeup lasts longer too! So far, this is the one miracle-like product that has worked wonders for my skin.
Ok, now that I’ve gushed over this product I have to tell you the negative side. The scent of this paste, although mild, isn’t very appealing. And, like all other Rodan + Fields product, it’s quite pricey.
Part of me would love to buy a whole regimen to try it out together. The only thing that’s preventing me from fully committing to Rodan + Fields products is definitely the price tag. I do want to try a few more however. I’m thinking of trying the REDEFINE daily cleansing mask and the REDEFINE pore minimizing toner. I’ll give you an update in a few months!
