I Don't Sell it, but I Love it!!
I'm not sure what it is about Rodan and Fields but I am now fascinated. It could be because the world is changing and so is the way we do business. It could be because it's quietly empowering women (and men) to drive their 'Plan B' revenue, or it could be because I simply love their products. The problem is, the first time I saw this stuff on social media, I immediately despised it; but then I got to thinking...why?
I would like to begin with I am in NO WAY being compensated for this endorsement. I would like to continue to say that the first time I saw Rodan and Fields I thought it was ridiculous that I was being inundated with their propaganda in my personal feed, but it sure did pique my curiosity. I put my toe in and evaluated but didn't buy. I had just had twins and I was buying formula, diapers and all sorts of other random things that I hadn't quite done the math on, there was no room in my budget for skin care, specifically expensive skincare (I was a Dove girl prior to using R&F). In addition, I didn't feel like I could trust the information because it inevitably was coming from ladies who were ultimately capitalizing on my purchase...of course they thought it was awesome, they were making money selling it.... But then, 15mos postpartum I hosted a shower for a friend and my picture was taken, and I looked worn. My skin had taken a beating due to hormone level changes, getting older and overall poor care. So I did what any reasonable mom on a budget would do and I headed to SAMs and bought an economy sized pack of Oil of Olay and....it didn't work. After feeling extra worn and a little ugly one day at work I decided to take the plunge and buy a regimen. I'm so glad I did.
I immediately saw results, and almost as immediately decided not to replace my foundation. I didn't need it any more. I then went on to purchase a few other products and have loved them all. But I totally understand that most women don't want to jump right into a fairly expensive regimen without some proof. Hence why I'm writing this.
A few things before we get started:
1. You do not have to set your orders on auto-replenish. If this is a concern of yours ask your R&F consultant how to get around it.
2. You may spend more on skin care but you will no longer invest in traditional foundation and you will look great! (I still use a loose powder - R&F Mineral Peptides but I no longer need a cream foundation or cover up and my clothes aren't stained from pulling them over my head at the end of the day.)
3.) You don't have to order a full regimen in order to see results. It is ideal and you may be so impressed with the outcome of your order that want to indulge further...but out of the gate it's not necessary.
If I were a beginner that was hesitant to make an investment in a regimen, I would absolutely start with the Micro-Dermabrasion paste. It's packed with vitamin E, vitamin C and a sugar and salt blend for incredible exfoliation. It can be used alone or paired with other products to target specific skin concerns. I use it once or twice a week to simply keep my face looking fresh and dead-skin free! (A tub lasts a LONG time!)
Many of the gals I talk to begin with eye cream. Don't. If you are still caking on the foundation the impact of the eye cream will be wasted. The eye cream is a GREAT addition after you find yourself comfortable to have a naked face daily (which will happen after the regular use of a regimen). The paste is reasonable, provides immediate results, only requires application several times a week.
So there it is, the missing component from the R&F equation; An unbiased recommendation. I don't sell it, I won't profit if you buy it, I just love it. My skin has never looked better and been easier. I also love the fact that I am spending my money supporting a momtreprenuer. If you don't know a consultant, message me and I will be happy to provide you with a contact. If you know one and you haven't tried the products give it a try - they really will give you your money back if you don't like it.
If you DO use R&F please share your favorite product with us by leaving a comment!

I use Redefine - I'm obsessed with the night cream.
6/24/2016 08:00:51 am
Heidi - what a great write up!! I use just about everything R+F has... Microderm Paste, Redefine regimen, AMP MD Roller, Eye Cream, Peptides, Body Sunscreen, Body Moisturizer, Lip Renewing Serum, and Soothe Mineral Sunscreen!!
7/2/2016 11:36:39 pm
Reverse is now my choice. Brown spots receding. Skin glowing. Luv this product
6/24/2016 09:41:18 am
Use it and LOVE it... If I have to pick a favorite- the microdermabrasion paste- it pairs up well with so many of the other products!
I loved your unbiased review if our products. You will resonate with many potential customers. I too felt the same way before I began using the products then I became a believer and can see why using R+F is totally worth it. I loved it so much that I became a consultant. I like most of the other consultants truly just want people to try it. With the 60 day empty bottle guarantee they have nothing to lose. Yes, we want you to buy it because we know it will make you feel great about yourself. I'm all about improving self confidence of women and women helping women in business. Now that I read your blog, I look forward to more inciteful articles. Thank you.
6/24/2016 01:07:38 pm
I have sensitive skin and the Soothe Cream works immediately to get rid of redness. It smooths on well and has a light, fresh scent that smells really good!
6/24/2016 07:38:49 pm
I am a R+F Consultant and I want to say Thank you! We need more people like you to post things like this as you aren't making money off being honest, plus you don't sell it. I appreciate you doing this for all the non-believers😊
6/27/2016 06:29:55 pm
I so appreciate your blog too! I too was very skeptical of the
6/24/2016 08:59:00 pm
Fell in love with the Redefine, but use the Paste, eye cream, AMP roller and Acute Care strips, all the body products...LOVE IT
7/4/2016 05:16:13 pm
I would like to have some of this cream
7/5/2016 07:21:05 pm
Hi Kathy! I'm Heidi's consultant! I'd be happy to help you and spoil you with the free goodies all of my customers are spoiled with!
6/25/2016 09:49:31 am
I love the products! the AmpMd micro-needling roller and night renewing serum are my favorites!
6/26/2016 04:41:20 pm
Agree. Love the AMP MD roller & Night Renewing Serum.
6/25/2016 08:05:36 pm
Thank you for such an honest and well written commentary on our Rodan + Fields products & business ❤️
I discovered Rodan + Fields two years ago when I was still having breakouts in my 40s. A friend had suggested it while sitting on the beach. That night as I was scrolling thru Facebook low and behold my cousin announced her business. I sent her a message and said send me UNBLEMISH. Within 30 days, the results were very evident. So I too took the leap and became a consultant. Thank you for your impartial review of the products. Our doctors know skin and have created an arsenal of must haves. My three must have products - eye cream, mineral peptides powder and the microdermabrasion paste.
6/26/2016 07:50:31 am
My favorite products is the Reverse regimen, amp MD system and the micro derm paste! 😍 I've been using these products for 4 years and I love them!
6/26/2016 10:29:22 am
I use the Redefine regimen which comes with the daily cleansing mask. I am wondering if I should use the microderm abrasion paste instead of the mask.
7/19/2016 05:53:56 pm
Yes you can use the microdermabrasion paste in place of your wash/mask three times a week. I love the results of doing that.
6/26/2016 04:44:50 pm
Reverse is my favorite. It has removed the sun damage and age spots. In the words of my hubby, "your face is as smooth as a baby's butt!"
6/27/2016 04:48:22 am
I DO sell. But my story is absolutely identical to yours! I started selling because I knew I could earn some side money and deliver results!!!!! What a fantastic company and products! Well written review!
6/27/2016 04:58:28 am
I use sooth...I have always used dark foundation make-up to cover but now can go foundation free! Like you I was hesitant but and happy to not only be a user of R and F - I am a consultant! Love it!
My best friend Dr. Kathy Fields introduced me to Rodan + Fields products in 2005 when they were then owned by Estee Lauder and sold and find apartment stores across the country. She then invited me to become one of the very first consultants and I launch the Chicago market in 2007. What an amazing ride it's been and I absolutely love my products and so does my family. Everybody loves these because they perform. The best part is helping others achieve beautiful skin and accomplish things in their own business that they never thought they could. It's an amazing life!
6/27/2016 06:55:04 am
Wow Victoria you are one lucky lady!! I'm a consultant and i know hard work and persistence will get me to the top but being in since the beginning, what a blessing!! Thanks for sharing!!
6/27/2016 09:55:11 am
This is a great article. I will be 70 in a year and have dealt with dry skin and blotchy areas. I was using lots of different make up to cover up. Since using R & F I now am very happy to put on some eye shadow, mascara , and once in a while some lipstick. My skin is even toned, wrinkles are far less apparent and the skin always looks fresh. I know I look better and I love the compliments I get.
6/27/2016 10:08:43 am
I love Unblemish it is the only thing that has worked on my adult acne!
6/27/2016 04:03:32 pm
My daughter's best friend tried to convince me to try R+F for three years. She was never pushy, just said she thought it was something I might really like. I assured her I was quite comfortable and happy with my Obagi system. One day it occurred to me that while I was comfortable, I hadn't been happy with my skin for awhile. I have been using the Reverse system with the accelerator pack for about two months and I just love everything about it! I think, if I had to pick, the macro dermabrashion tool is my current fav. Just wish I would have started a long time ago!
6/27/2016 06:50:03 pm
Have been using the reverse regimen and definitely see results! And I LOVE the self tanner-it does not have a strong or unpleasant odor-just creates a lovely soft color for my fair skin.
6/28/2016 03:31:08 am
Thank you for your endorsement! I completely agree. R&F is a great plan 'b'!
6/28/2016 04:15:29 am
I love my Redefine. I have a jaw line.
6/28/2016 05:09:34 am
It is true that I love most of our products, but the thing that causes me to lengthen my neck a little higher is the fact that this company is about changing lives. I would be curious to see HOW MANY lives we are changing for the better. As for me and my business, we are changing the lives of children with invisible learning disabilities and their families.
Thank you so much for your clear, direct information about the amazing R+F products. I am an independent professional educational consultant and I do 6-hour presentations in front of hundreds of people, all the time. The constant travel across the country with my poor, travel-related eating habits made my face looked rough, plus I had red, itchy facial dermatitis. Not anymore! I do recommend and sell them now,;I love getting that 25% discount for being a consultant, AND I love my 60-yr old face! Thank you for helping us to spread the word!
6/28/2016 09:04:46 am
I am a RF consultant and love all our products, but I'll have to say I agree with you about the Micro-Dermabrasion Paste! Love to use it on my face and in the shower and it is my recommendation to prospective customers who do not want or have the resources to take the plunge with an entire regimen. THANK YOU for this well-written, heart-felt referral of our amazing products!!
6/28/2016 11:54:44 am
Thank you so much for this write up! So grateful for such endorsements!
6/28/2016 05:02:24 pm
Thank you for your review! I am a consultant and so appreciate that you took the time to write this. I love our products and the business. I have made so many friends, met so many fun intelligent, generous people. This company is a blessing to so many. Than you!
6/29/2016 06:29:11 am
As a Consultant I appreciate and want to Thank You for sharing your thoughts about Rodan + Fields products in your review! I love that these products allow me to be foundation free! I'm a consistent user of regimens...but also love the Microdermabrasion Paste...and products that protect us from the sun...and...I could go on and on!!!
6/29/2016 07:29:31 am
Thank you for taking the time to write this. This is resonant with every thought I had. I love the Redefine regimen and the Paste.
6/29/2016 08:23:51 am
I use Reverse and Redefine. I am obsessed with both, and the roller, and the eye cream, and the Essentials moisturizer, sunscreen and lip sheild. I love these products, best I have ever used!
6/29/2016 08:38:39 am
Great write up! Thank you!! And it was extra special to me coming from another twin mom. I used to think the same way as you then I was like I am worn after these twins, tried it, loved it, am makeup free and feeling good. Now I am a consultant. :) Blessings to you!!
6/29/2016 08:54:21 am
Thanks for your unbiased review. It is great to hear your skepticism turned true believer. I am a user of all the products (favorites would be mineral peptide powder, especially in the summer, the microdermabrasion paste and Reverse regimen) and a consultant. It was all too good to pass up at the discount provided to consultants and it feels so good to pass these products on to others. By far the best part of being a consultant, helping others. The money and perks are amazing but making women and men comfortable in their own skin is a gift you cannot but a price tag on, thanks again for spreading the RF love!!
6/29/2016 03:36:08 pm
THANK YOU for a great article regarding these amazing products! I am a consultant and appreciate the time you took to give a personal, unbiased review! God Bless! ❤️
6/29/2016 07:25:10 pm
I'm a consultant and I love that you posted this. It's so true that it's hard for people to believe us when we rave about the products because we are "selling" it, but it's only because we believe in it SO MUCH! The Micro-dermabrasion Paste is my absolute favorite! I use it twice a week on my face/neck and once a week on my shoulders and back. It, along with the Redefinie, has changed my skin. I'm foundation AND powder free for the first time in my life!
6/29/2016 08:31:08 pm
Thanks for the great write-up! As a man, I was a bit skeptical about skin products, but after trying them out am converted. The Beyond the Shave is incredible! I liked them so much that I decide to be a R+F Consultant based in Australia. We are yet to launch in this market, but are doing so soon. I'd love to help anyone here experience these products and the company. Feel free to connect anyone with interest to me via my email address.
6/29/2016 09:45:39 pm
First of all...I just LOVE your unbiased post about these products. I too was skeptical but started with Reverse (for sun damage) along with Redefine night cream and eye cream (anti-aging) and noticed a HUGE improvement. So much so that I thru out all of my foundation. So happy I found these products and worth every penny. : )
6/30/2016 06:42:35 am
I love the MDP!! I use it for perfect shave, for mini facials every week, for my keratosis pilaris with soothe 2, just generalized exfoliation and with the body lotion! 😊👍🏽💗
6/30/2016 07:19:05 am
Thank you for your support of our small businesses! So glad you love the products, that's why I joined last year and never looked back!
6/30/2016 05:38:25 pm
Great article! I've been using R&F for 5 years. I'm 60 now and very few wrinkles. I keep the Micro-Dermabrasion in my shower for exfoliation of face and body! It really works! I signed up as a consultant just so I could get the products wholesale!
6/30/2016 07:55:55 pm
First off, I am a consultant, but also a firm believer in the R&F brand of products. Hard not to be when you see the results yourself, & others comment and compliment constantly! This was a great short & concise post shooting straight about the reason people are hesitant and why they shouldn't be. But mostly I love all the customers (not consultants) who have replied. One of my daughters wanted to read those kinds of comments and you sure have them here. Thanks again & glad you love us too!
7/1/2016 11:06:45 am
I use a lot of the products, and my fave (right now!) is Soothe sunscreen, It goes on so light, dries to a powder finish, and feels great on my skin all day - plus it's SPF 30!
7/1/2016 11:08:18 am
I'm a consultant and I love how the products are addressing skin concerns for my whole family, I use REVERSE, REDEFINE, AMP Roller, and the eye cream. My hubby uses UNBLEMISH and REDEFINE. My two teens use SOOTHE and UNBLEMISH. Thanks for sharing your unbiased experience with R+F!
7/1/2016 12:53:17 pm
I started as a customer and am now a consultant. I love your story. I too hesitated to use the products for most of the reasons you mentioned. But the lady that introduced me to the products/company is a lady I have worked with before and trusted and respected herh. I love all the products but if I had to choose just one that I would not be without it would be the lip serum. Awesome product.
7/1/2016 03:29:15 pm
Thank you for reinforcing what I have come to know about R+F over the last 18 months ...unlike most I have seen respond I started as a consumer (PC) and ended as a consultant. I've tried every cream, lotion imaginable and R+F delivers! These products have transformed this 65 year old face for the BETTER😇
7/2/2016 07:11:30 am
As a Rodan+Fields consultant, I am so grateful that you have taken the time to share your experience with our products. I had tried everything on the market before trying R+F for my terrible sun damage, dark marks and fine lines. When I saw the difference it made in my skin I was amazed. So many women are affected by self-esteem and confidence issues. I knew if I could share these products with my heart, I would here to stay. It is a blessing to hear all of these testimonies. Thank you again! <3
7/2/2016 02:51:05 pm
I was a serious skeptic!!! I finally tried a sample after asking a thousand questions! I fell in love with micro paste! Then the eye cream. I began to notices changes! Now I use the redefine regime and reverse, the results are so amazing I became a consulant!
7/2/2016 05:04:05 pm
Excellent article. I thought it was one of those pyramid things because my first introduction to it was focusing on 'selling' it and it turned me off. I was finally attracted to the products with no mention or pressure to 'sell' and.love results....it is truly working and I love how my skin both looks and feels.
7/3/2016 08:57:29 am
I love all of the R+F products that I am currently using. My favorite is the roller along with the night renewing serum. I also love and use reverse cleansing mask, reverse toner and lightening treatment, dual acting brightening complex vitamin C - and the one with retinal, SPF 50+ Sunscreen. I also love and use redefine cleansing mask, toner, overnight restoration cream, lip serum, eye cream. Love and use the formless sunless tan and the microdermabrasion abrasion paste.
7/3/2016 09:23:41 am
Kudos to you for trying something new and taking the time to share your successful outcomes with readers... and supporting (mostly)women -owned businesses. I learned of the line through hearing the success story of a previously-'organic only' woman, there's learned of the business... and jumped into both full on. Yep, I love both Redefine and Reverse regimens, AND get the joy of hearing about other women's successes with their skin and their business. Cheers to that!!
7/4/2016 08:10:36 am
Love your thoughts and so glad to hear an unbiased opinion!! Thank you! And I agree, the microdermabrasion paste is fantastic.
7/4/2016 04:42:42 pm
Thank you so much for this positive review of our products. I think people are skeptical at first because of the claims other products make but do not produce the desired results. I am proud to be a part of this wonderful company. Thank you again!
7/5/2016 08:48:17 am
I, also, was a skeptic. My daughter had become a consultant and being the "good mom", I ordered the Redefine regimen to support her new "business'!! Wow!!! What a surprise!!! I have added the Reverse regimen over the past year and have only been happy with the results!! Great products, Rodan and Fields... Keep the good stuff coming!!!
7/5/2016 04:40:15 pm
I don't have much money..I have been criticized for spending what I have on R & F. It's important to my overall well-being to have great skin and R & F has done that for me! I started with Reverse and my skin has never looked better. I was using products from the cosmetic counter at a high end department store but I could tell they weren't doing the trick. The difference in my skin from 2 months ago is astonishing! The compliments I get are proof...I had to convince a new aquaintance that I was really 12 years older than her. Talk about being on cloud nine after that discussion! I just started Redefine and I know I will love it just as I did with the Reverse regimen.
7/5/2016 06:28:46 pm
I love using Redefine. It really works. I also use the Soothe step 3 after I shave. It leaves my legs super smooth and since I have sensitive skin I don’t get those shaving bumps.......yes, I sell it and I do LOVE it.......I also put my son and one of my nieces on the Unblemish regimen and they are super happy.....THANK YOU for this article.......
7/7/2016 06:16:43 am
I use redefine and reverse with accelerator pack. It's so amazing having the best skin of my life! ( I also use amp roller and multifunction eye cream...when I started combining it all, my skin improved within DAYS. Days!!! Still can't get over it. Very happy with my results.
7/7/2016 12:09:35 pm
I can't pick just one product to love!!! I love it all!!! I also have ditched my liquid foundation and NEVER EVER thought I would be able to do that due to my combination oily skin.
7/13/2016 09:16:19 am
I had an appointment with my dermatologist and they suggested I start botox treatments for preventative measures. I was mortified. I shared this news with a friend who offered to talk about the R + F product line. I was hesitant at first. My skin is very sensitive. Any time I introduce a new product a rash forms. Brooke suggested we start with soothe. After two orders she then thought I was ready for redefine. I have been using it for 2 weeks and my skin has never felt better. I also use the paste and eye cream. So happy I confided in a friend.
7/14/2016 07:46:06 pm
I love this article :)
7/24/2016 07:48:31 am
Unblemish and Reverse are my fav products! I used the products for 10 months before becoming a consultant. I was a skeptic as well but now I'm an ultimate believer in the power of these products! Thank you for your honesty!!!
7/25/2016 02:09:04 pm
Like many others, I started off using the Redefine Regimen and the AMP MD roller. A year later I added the Reverse Regimen! I loved the products so much that I became a Consultant with R+F and absolutely love sharing with others! Was so refreshing to read your blog post!! Thank you so much for sharing!
7/28/2016 10:47:08 am
Absolutely love R+F products. I've spent so much money and tried so many products over the years - from medical grade to prescriptions and harsh treatments. Rodan + Fields are the ONLY regimens that have consistently addressed any and all skin issues I've had - from breakouts to dark marks to sensitivity. Truly awesome products backed by a solid company.
7/29/2016 04:01:01 am
I do sell it but I was very hesitant in the beginning also. I am so glad the day I looked in the mirror and did not like what I saw and picked up the phone and called my R+F girl. I originally was only going to try it but after hearing about the business plan I decided to jump in!! And I am SO glad I did. I currently use Sooth for my psoriasis and Redefine with the AMP MD on my face. My skin has never felt better. Thank you so much for the nice write up about this amazing company.
8/9/2016 08:03:01 pm
I started with the Soothe face wash and eye cream. Then I because a consultant (so I could get awesome discounts) and started using the Reverse Regimen, that stuff is AMAZING!!!
8/12/2016 09:37:32 am
The lip serum and mineral peptide powder are my favorites.
