So today I’m going to do something a little different on the blog and leave my kids completely out of the post!
Three years ago I knew it was time to get serious about my skin. No, it wasn’t written in my planner and no, I didn’t have a light bulb moment one day as I was folding clothes. I knew because my plastic surgeon told me after he removed cancer from several layers of skin below my eye.
It wasn’t pretty.
That’s an understatement.
It was downright ugly.
I wore a four by four-inch packed gauze bandage for weeks.
When I was given permission to remove the gnarly compress; it revealed a nasty scab that left a scar the size of a half dollar coin.
No big deal for someone who cares very little about their looks.
Unfortunately, I’m shallow & I care.
I knew it was time for me to get serious about a skincare routine.
So, I made a list of demands.
I needed skin care that would not only help reduce the appearance of the large scar on my face but would also protect my skin against future damage. There was no way I was going to risk going through THAT again.
While I was at it, I wanted something to address the fine lines that were starting to form on my forehead and around my eyes.
Furthermore, I was none too happy with my skin’s dull appearance.
What happened to my youthful glow?
And how did I wake up one day with age spots?
I knew my oily skin was going to complicate things.
I always hesitated to put moisturizer on my face because that just seemed silly. An hour after washing my face you could fry an egg on it!
I shopped around.
I found products here and there, but no one line that worked for me.
Finally, I decided to give the Rodan + Fields Reverse Regimen a try.
I’m so glad I did.
The Reverse Brightening Regimen made my skin feel clean and fresh. The first time I used the exfoliating wash I felt a difference in my dull, oily skin. My skin felt soft and fresh and shiny! And that was just the first step!
The toner didn’t sting like some of the higher end products I’ve tried with Salicylic acid, and a little goes a long way.
It smells good too!
It did take me a bit to get used to applying the Vitamin C and Retinal Dual Active Brightening Complex. I used way too much for the first month and almost ran out! You only need a pea sized amount!
I was worried it may make my greasy skin feel oily, but it didn’t! I learned that my skin needed this dual complex multi-med therapy to stop producing so much oil. For the first time in a long time I started to like the way I looked without makeup.
When I saw my results from using Lash Boost I fell in love!
I decided I loved the products so much that I signed on as a consultant.
Now hang on before you click out-I’m not about to go all salesperson on you.
That’s one of the best things about “selling” for Rodan + Fields. I don’t sell anything.
I share information.
It’s more of a show and tell situation.
Except I don’t keep inventory-I show online.
I tell on Facebook.
And right here, on my blog.
Here’s a before & after of Brooke’s results with the Reverse Regimen.
You can see my results right here.
My teenage daughter, Savannah, uses the Unblemish Regimen.
After using it for a month she started going to school without makeup. A teenager that doesn’t pile on makeup to go…everywhere? Yep!
The doctors behind this powerhouse company are two dermatologists, Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields. If they sound familiar it may be because they created ProActive.
The concept behind Rodan + Fields was to change the face of skincare by developing another brand that gave everyone access to Multi-Med Therapy.
Most people can’t break away for a few hours to see the dermatologist. And even though skincare is important to all women, most of us are using the wrong products.
We spend around two weeks a year looking at our reflection and about six months a year worrying about what we look like! I think we can all agree we need to be savvier when it comes to the products we put on our skin.
Enter the R+F Solutions Tool.
Don’t worry; it won’t take much time or your credit card number!
All you have to do is answer a few questions, and boom-you get a customized plan that you can discuss with your own personal Rodan + Fields Consultant.
You may notice that R+F uses the term regimen when describing the products.
When I signed on to try the products I felt dumb because I didn’t know what a regimen was, so just in case you feel the same, I’ll help you out!
A regimen is a systematic plan (as of diet, therapy, or medication) especially when designed to improve and maintain the health of a patient.
There are four steps in every regimen; that’s the systematic plan of Multi-Med Therapy!
Rodan + Field’s regimens give you products with the right ingredients, in the right formulations, in the right order to provide you with optimal results. You don’t have to worry about which toner goes with which cream-they have planned it all out for you.
Redefine and Soothe are also major game changers.
I use the multi-function eye cream along with my Reverse Regimen.
It helps with dark circles and fine lines.
The Redefine toner has AHA’s that work miracles on aging skin without causing too much redness and irritation. Redefine is the regimen for those who want visibly firmer and smoother skin, with fewer lines and wrinkles. In all fairness, everyone needs Soothe.
It may sound salesy, but it’s true.
We can start with those who have sensitive skin and want a healthier complexion.
I use Soothe for sunburns on my children, and it works wonders. My kids have fair skin and blonde hair, and when they walk out the door without sunscreen, they burn like witches on a stake. SootheBoth of them get what is known as “hell’s itch” sunburns. It’s a total nightmare, and has helped relieve their pain on a few occasions.
As you can probably tell, I love these products and this company.
There’s no way I could promote something I didn’t love. I don’t have the nerve to promote anything I don’t believe in.
I didn’t set out to sell Rodan + Fields.
I just wanted the very best for my skin.
The thing is, Rodan + Fields is the real deal.
I have seen people’s attitudes about life change as a result of using these products.
Life changing skin products?
For example, I had a customer who fought acne for years.
By the time she hit 35, she had given up. She had tried everything. I was able to talk her into trying the Unblemish Regimen.
We have a 60-day money back guarantee.
She had nothing to lose!
Ok, I sound like a commercial, but it’s true…
After using the Unblemish Regimen for one month, she was hopeful.
After two months she was ecstatic!
The acne was gone, and she no longer had to hide behind layers of concealer, foundation, and powder. To some, this may sound trivial, but it was life changing for her. Y’all, she had tried every product at Sephora and even gotten injections from dermatologists for acne. Nothing worked. Unblemish did.
In this small way, I made a difference in her life, all while making money to help support my family. That’s why I sell Rodan+Fields products. Well, I really don’t sell anything.
I just share the information with people. I get to learn about cutting edge beauty products and trends and talk to people on my own time.
As a mom, getting to set my schedule is important to me. And I don’t like answering to anyone!:)) I’d much rather be my own boss!
If you haven’t tried Rodan + Fields skin care and you’d like to try it, but you still have questions, contact me! I’m happy to help.
Don’t let another day go by without doing something fabulous for yourself that will pay off big time in the future!
