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!
