I once thought skincare routines weren’t necessary. Well, maybe they were for some people, but not me. See, I still thought I was invincible in my thirties, and since I got Botox injections, I was covered. Then I went to see a local dermatologist for what I thought was an odd looking spider bite on my face. As soon as he saw it, he knew it was skin cancer. He offered to blow torch it off right then and there, but I very politely declined his offer, grabbed my purse and got the hell out of there as fast as possible. I dialed the plastic surgeon’s office on my way to the car and made an appointment.
My plastic surgeon recommended Mohs surgery, not medieval weaponry. Still, I was left with a scar the size of a quarter under my left eye and the task of finding the right skin care to help me protect myself from future damage.
They were expensive and I didn’t see results.
Enter Rodan + Fields.
You have probably heard of them. Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields are the dermatologists behind the brand. They also happen to be the founders of Proactiv.
One of my Rodan + Fields friends walked me through the Solutions Tool to determine which product line best suited me (Reverse) and I signed on to be a Preferred Customer, and later, a consultant.
Since I started using Rodan + Fields, I have gotten SO many compliments on my skin. And I’ll tell you why; these products work!
The before picture was taken in February of 2017 and the after picture was taken in July of 2017. Please note that I am wearing no makeup or mascara in the after picture. (It’s obvious I’m not wearing it in the before!)
Now, here’s a breakdown of what I use.
Step #1 Reverse Deep Exfoliating Wash With Alpha hydroxy acids, this cleanser exfoliates and refines sun damaged skin to make a clean slate to prepare your skin for the medicines delivered in the next steps of the routine. This is one of my favorite products!
Step #2 Reverse Intensive Brightening Toner delivers a blend of Kojic Acid, vitamins, Salicylic Acid and Licorice to visibly brighten the skin, even out the appearance of discoloration and reveal a more radiant complexion.
Step #3 AMP MD System Another favorite, this uses micro exfoliating roller technology for advanced skin firming benefits. The AMP comes with Step #4, the Night Serum-the neat little blue capsules!
Step #4 Night Renewing Serum These little capsules are full of peptides and Retinal that visibly improve skin texture and brighten your skin. After one use you will see results!
Step #5 Multi Function Eye Cream With the help of peptides this minimizes the look of crow’s feet and reduces the appearance of your dark circles and puffiness under your eyes
Step #6 Lash Boost Miracle worker. This lash conditioning serum improves the appearance of lash volume within four weeks. I am telling you this is a game changer.
In case you need more proof, here’s a photo of me before I started using the Rodan + Fields Regimen.
Here’s an after photo.
I realize all of the steps may seem like a lot at first. It was for me-since I was used to doing nothing at all. But once you start to see the results you will thank yourself. Also, it doesn’t take that long to do it! I have three kids, one with special needs. If I can find the time, you can too!
I used to get Botox injections. I thought that was all I needed. Sure, my forehead had no wrinkles, but I looked like the Grinch Who Stole Christmas. This wasn’t a great look for me. (See before picture above.) In fact, I don’t know anybody who can pull off the Botox brow. Plus, those injections weren’t doing anything for my skin. So if you ask me, Rodan + Fields works better than Botox.
Now, you may be a little overwhelmed. That’s ok. My advice is to visit the Solutions Tool and answer a few questions about your skin. That’s how you will find out which Regimen will be the best fit for your needs.
The Reverse Regimen includes the four steps above and will last for two months. Signing up as a Preferred Customer gets you 10% off retail prices, free shipping and special purchase opportunities on newly released products. You will not be required to make additional purchases, and you may change the products you order at any time.
Rodan + Fields offers a 60 Day Empty Bottle Guarantee on all of the products. This is something I like to call the best sample in the business. If you aren’t satisfied, you can get your money back-even if you used everything!
