It’s no secret that I love my Rodan+Fields skincare products – but I wanted to share a bit more about why I love the products, how I got started on them and my results.
I’ve always had acne-prone skin – starting in high school and continuing through college and my skin was the worst I’ve ever seen about 4-5 months after having Blair. I used a number of different products, from Proactiv to Murad, Clinique and even Mario Badescu while I was pregnant with Blair, since it was pregnancy-safe. Looking at that list, I’m sure you can guess that I spent a pretty penny on skincare over the years (like most ladies do!).
The downside of all of the money I spent on skincare was the fact that nothing I used ever worked well nor did it CHANGE my skin for the better. Sometimes, the products would ‘help’ keep my breakouts small and fade more quickly, but really nothing prevented them from popping up.
I remember looking in the mirror the day after I had Blair, and my skin looked awful. I have one photo we took at the hospital before we went home and I didn’t even want to share it, because my skin was so bad looking! In the months that followed, I documented every single day with photos of Blair, but would always shy away when someone tried to take my picture holding her. Looking back now, I really hate that because there are not many photos of me and her together in her first few months.
At one point when she was about 4 or 5 months old, I saw a picture that my husband had taken of me sitting on the floor playing with Blair and I just wanted to delete it right then and there. My skin had taken a turn for the worse, if that’s even possible, and I knew I needed to find something that worked ASAP. I had heard about Rodan+Fields due to a few high school friends selling it, and so I wanted to learn more about it. In observing two of these ladies in particular, they seemed overjoyed to be Rodan+Fields consultants and being ever the opportunist, I was curious about the business aspect of R+F as well.
I ended up learning about both the skincare and the business opportunity and decided I wanted to jump in as a consultant right away. The product discount (25% off!) and the chance to earn an income by sharing the greatness of R+F with others was too good to pass up. As soon as I got my product kit (which came with all 4 skincare regimens and other products, too), I started using Reverse. Though I was still having breakouts, my skin was incredibly dull and I had such uneven skin tone that I felt I’d get more benefit from Reverse.
After using Reverse as directed for a full 60 days (that’s the recommended timeframe for seeing optimal results, and you have a full 60 days to return product if you don’t like it/if it doesn’t work well for you), I was amazed at how great my skin looked. I couldn’t remember a time where my skin looked more vibrant, fresh and even clear of acne. Obviously because I had such great results, I continued using Reverse! I still had breakouts here and there, and finally decided to give Unblemish a whirl. I started by using Unblemish once a day and Reverse once a day, but later fully switched over to Unblemish twice a day.
It was soon after that I found out I was pregnant with Blakely, and after careful research, continued using my Unblemish and it kept my hormonal skin clear all through my pregnancy! This was literally a miracle, as my skin broke out constantly when I was pregnant with Blair back in 2014 (I was using ‘natural’ Mario Badescu products at the time). I have kept up my routine of using Unblemish since having Blakely and my skin is 1000x better looking than it ever was postpartum with Blair. I also use Multi-Function Eye Cream, Mineral Peptides and Lash Boost regularly – and just tried the newest product, Active Hydration Serum, which is literally AMAZING. Get ya some!
With that said, I’d highly recommend R+F products to anyone looking for great skincare – and I’m not just saying that because I’m a consultant 🙂 Feel free to shoot me a message if you have any Qs about Rodan + Fields – happy to help!
