“We want to give everyone access to dermatology-inspired skincare so they can experience the personal confidence that comes with a healthy, clear, even-toned complexion. That's why we created Rodan + Fields.”
—Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields
Skin Care is a major aspect of my life especially as I am growing older, so Its really important to care of it earlier rather than later. Over the last few years I have incorporated many different skin care products into my regime from toning, using serums and SPF's and to using an eye cream daily. These didn't exists in my life when I was in my early 20's and I'm really glad that I did pick up the habit to pamper and look after my skin.
Our goal in life, well for most people anyway, is to remain youthful. When my sister In law showed me some testimonials of real people and how their skin looked amazing and more youthful after using a brand called Rodan + Fields, it really caught my attention.
Rodan and Fields is known to be the fastest growing No1 Skin Care brand in the US. It is brought to us by renowned dermatologists Dr Katie Rodan and Dr Kathy Fields. With their extensive knowledge and background they created their dermatology inspired skincare that is easily accessible to everyone. They developed multi step science to ensure that their customers use the right ingredients, in the right formula and in the right order.
Rodan and Fields came to Australia mid September and I was able to buy a regime that best suited my concerns.
I used the Skin Care Tool to get my personalised skin care recommendation which resulted in The R+F Reverse Regime to be the best choice for me. I selected concerns such as mark marks and dullness as these are my current issues. I have dark marks left from past spots and also some pigmentation around my mouth which I feel has cropped up over the years and became more visible since I moved to Melbourne.
I was able to purchase my regime via my lovely sister in law who is an independent consultant for the brand. She has been really great with also recommending other products such as the multifunction eye cream which has had some rave reviews from other influencers and magazines.
Before I knew it my kit had arrived and I was ready to start with the regime. My Regime,Reverse came with 4 products and an information leaflet. I received
1. Deep Exfoliating Wash: Alpha hydroxy acids and exfoliants to gently remove dead skin cells and brightens skin.
2. Intensive Brightening Toner: Salicylic acid and licorice enhance the skin renewal and refine the appliance for a radiant complexion. It has a blend of Kojic Acid and antioxidants to help brighten skin
3. Dual Active Brightening Complex: Combinations of pure Vit C and Retinol formulas to enhance and brighten skin, while it also diminishes fine lines and wrinkles. Kojic acid and licorice also improve the appearance of uneven skin tone over time.
4. Shield Brightening Lotion SPF 15 : The lotion contains SHIELD technology to slow down signs of photoageing. Vitamin E and Green Tea extracts provide additional free radical scavengers and Licorice extracts and Mulberry to help brighten dull looking skin.
These products contain some potent ingredients so a schedule was given to us to slowly incorporate them into our skin care routine. Initially starting the product every other morning to build up using them twice a day.
I am loving the exfoliant wash. Its a brightening cleanser with really tiny concentrated particles that buff the skin to flake away dead skin cells. Its not harsh on the skin and results in really smooth soft skin. I haven't used a face scrub in a few years as I have been using acid exfoliants so the results is really noticeable. The other products are surprisingly not very drying considering step 2 and 3 are acid/ retinol based products. The SPF lotion is creamy and doesn't leave a sticky SPF metallic hue. As I like to use a stronger SPF I also used my own. In the evening , I omit the SPF and use a moisturiser of my own. The products have a very medicated citrusy smell, which is along the lines of a lemsip drink which I"m still getting used to!
So far I am really loving the regime, Its been about a month since I have been using the regime regularly and my skin is looking smoother and much brighter. I did start using the regime twice a day but I found that with the current high temperatures, I had slight stinging sensations, so I've stopped using it in the day time and stuck with using at night only. I still wear sunscreen during the day.
I've been complimented on my skin and foundation finish when I haven't been wear any so thats a really good sign. My stubborn spot marks which I've had for weeks before I started the regime are also starting to fade a little but still slightly visible. The darkness around my mouth is not so visible, which was my main concern.
I have taken some before face shots and will keep you guys updated on how im doing in a few months!
