**PLEASE NOTE: While Molly DeMarcellus DID provide me with this product to test at no cost, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.**
Normally all of you lovely readers come here to the blog to see posts about organization, home, garden…and anything else “domestic”, right? Well, allow me to submit the fact that anything falling into the category of “self-care” is also essential to a happy domestic life! Don’t you agree? If YOU are healthy and happy and well-taken care of, then it certainly stands to reason that you will have more energy to organize, cook, clean, decorate and enjoy your life with your family!
Now that we’re all on the same page, I want to share with you something amazing that I’ve discovered: Rodan & Fields.
Not familiar with the name? How about Proactiv? A bit more familiar? (If you’re still having trouble, just think Adam Levine, he’s the spokesperson for Proactiv these days. And ladies, we all pay attention to Adam Levine when he comes across the screen, right? THOSE are the Proactiv commercials!)
I used Proactiv years ago when I had some major problem skin and I loved the results then! Today, my skin problems are completely different, and, come on, if you’re a woman reading this, you KNOW that the quest for good skin care products can take more time than actually caring for your skin! And now is a great time to polish up your skin care process – get the winter off and be ready for spring!
Rodan & Fields are the dermatologists behind the new and improved Proactive, but they are so much more! I recently caught up with an old friend from high school, Molly DeMarcellus, who is a consultant for Rodan & Fields and she shared some pretty exciting skin care info with me…plus, she gave ME some product and sent some product for one of YOU to try out, too!
Let’s check out the mini facial that she sent! (This is also what the giveaway is for!)
Inside each mini facial box you’ll find Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste, Redefine Night Renewing Serum and Redefine Lip Renewing Serum. (And a headband to keep your hair out of your face, specially included by Molly…because she just knows!)
The Night Renewing Serum and Lip Renewing Serum are in pods…
…that may look small, but trust me, there is more than enough in each!
(I actually think I could have used half of each one and still had plenty for another session!)
A set of instructions and information is also included.
The process was simple: apply the Micro-Dermabrasion Paste and massage, rinse off, towel dry, apply the Night Renewing Serum and then the Lip Renewing Serum.
Now, let me just say that I used to work for a day spa, and I know all about facials and the like. I’ve also tried multiple micro-dermabrasion treatments galore, so I’m not a stranger to this type of product.
But this one was different.
As soon as I had completed the first step, not only was my skin baby-bottom soft, but I literally could feel my skin BREATHING. It honestly felt like I had just set it free! And, although I would have been thrilled with just that, I had two more steps. I applied the Night Renewing Serum, and the skin that I was already amazed by as far as softness was concerned…became even softer and smoother! At that point, I couldn’t wait to get into the Lip Renewing Serum, and I was not disappointed! I apply lip moisturizer each evening before bed, but this was quite a step above what I was previously using.
I slept like a baby.
But here’s the kicker.
The next morning, my skin STILL felt amazing. And you know what? My makeup routine was about 5 minutes shorter than normal because I didn’t have to spend any extra time moisturizing or buffing any of those problem dry areas. They were still smooth! And on top of that, my makeup sailed over my skin so effortlessly…I really was pleasantly surprised!
Oh, and one more thing. I used a little bit on my hubby, just for kicks, and, although it’s normally like pulling teeth to get him to care for his skin, HE was impressed! He even asked where we could get more of the product! WHAT?! (The man is the youngest patient his dermatologist has had to remove skin cancer from, and, poor thing, I am constantly harping on how important it is for him to take care of his skin.) Oh…and he’s gonna LOVE the fact that I used him as a guinea pig and then blogged about it, ha!
This brings me to the point that Rodan & Fields is not just about Micro-Dermabrasion Paste, or Night Renewing Serum, or Lip Renewing Serum. They also offer products to…
- Reverse – For brown spots, dullness and sun damage
- Soothe – For Sensitive, irritated skin and facial redness
- Unblemish – For acne and post-acne marks
- Anti-Age – For wrinkles, pores and loss of firmness
- Essentials – Everyday Dermatological necessities
- Enhancements – Optimizing the results of your regimen with makeup
And even though Rodan & Fields is a United States company at the moment, they are launching in Canada this August!
