Hello, fellow mamas!
With the holiday season upon, I’m sure we’re all busy preparing and doing all we can to make the holidays wonderful for our families. But what about you, mama?? Have you done anything for yourself recently? I know, I know. You’re busy, you don’t have time to be spending on yourself. I get that. I really do. And so do Doctors Rodan and Fields. This is a “first impressions” type of review. I was sent a sample of the R+F mini facial from my consultant friend, Leigh. She also has an awesome surprise for all you readers at the end of this post. I’m also going to request that you ignore my not-so-fabulous photos, it was moving week and I did the best I could. Thanks for understanding!
Before getting into the actual product review, let’s talk about what Rodan and Fields actually is. Before Leigh came to me with this opportunity, I didn’t know much about the company, other than that it’s a skin care line that uses consultants and that they all seem to have amazing looking skin themselves. After some research here’s what I learned…Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields are the creators of Proactive Acne Solutions. This immediately made them more credible, in my opinion. The doctors launched Rodan and Fields to further their vision of easy skincare made available to lots of women with lots of different skin types and needs. One of the coolest tools they’ve made available through their website is the “solution tools”. This tool will take you through a questionnaire that will determine your skin type and needs. Once it determines skin type, it will recommend a routine and tell you all about it. You can even print your results as a reminder to yourself! It’s awesome! Take yours here.
Leigh sent me a packet of the Rodan + Fields Micro-Dermabrasion Paste, one Night Renewing Serum Capsule, and a Lip Renewing Serum Capsule. This is basically a one time use sample, which is why I call this a “first impressions” review. Enjoy!
The first step is the microderm abrasion paste. You can purchase this for $80 here. I was surprised that the instructions say to apply to dry skin. I did read that you can add some water in if you don’t want to exfoliate as much though. They recommend using this 2-3 times a week. When used, it replaces your regular cleanser. I decided to really put it to the test and rubbed it on my heavily-makeuped (is that even a word??) face and without any water. Guess what? It worked! I was thoroughly surprised! After quickly towel drying of my face, I rubbed my hands on my cheek and was delighted by how soft my face felt! Seriously, guys. SO SOFT!
Step two is the Night Renewing Serum. You can buy this here for $91. After the apparent success of step one, I was anxious to try this out. I broke open the capsule and applied the serum to my face using my finger tips. It felt so smooth and light. I loved it! A minute or so after applying the serum, I felt my face. It felt firm, but not uncomfortably tight and so smooth and supple. Perfection!
On to the third and final step! The Lip Renewing Serum costs $56 and can be bought here.When I use an exfoliant on my face, I usually include my lips. This is a personal preference, but worth mentioning. If you suffer from chapped lips during these dry winter months, then I definitely recommend exfoliating and following up with the Lip Renewing Serum. The serum felt so incredibly soft on my lips. I literally couldn’t stop rubbing them together.
By the time I went through all the steps, which really only took a few minutes (perfect for my busy mama schedule), I felt like a total babe. It’s amazing what a good facial can do for your confidence. It was also great knowing that I had done my skin a healthy favor.
