As a skincare junkie I am constantly looking out for new and exciting products. In order to fully understand the effects of certain skincare products you must be willing to try them out over a long period of time. Your initial introduction is always key and with any new product you should introduce it slowly into your regime, one product at a time. Introducing too many products at the same time could leave you wondering where that weird rash came from or why you seemingly have irritation or flaky skin. Another important factor in slowly introducing new products is that in order to gauge whether they actually work for you, you need to see how your body as a whole reacts over time. Your body is filled with hormones and females can experience increased oiliness or even adult acne when hormones become unbalanced.
As a teenager my skin was not always the best, but it could have been worse if my sister and mom didn’t introduce the importance of a skincare routine to me early on. In order to get me started my mom introduced me to the Proactiv brand which I used for a good portion of my high school life and probably ignited my monster obsession with skincare.
As a once upon a time Proactiv user I was very happy to hear that the original dermatologists who created the Proactiv brand developed a new skincare line called Rodan + Fields. After a quick online consulting using the R + F solution tool my skincare rep Heather was better able to understand my need and recommend a 4 step regime perfect for me.
Starting off slow I first introduced the Deep Exfoliating Wash into my routine and instantly feel in love. The formula reminded me of one of my all time favorite exfoliating cleansers, but Rodan’s is at a way better price point! Its grainy like texture exfoliates and cleans my skin with the perfect amount of lather. My skin is left feeling super clean and smooth without being stripped of moisture. Over the course of a couple weeks I even began to see a decrease in the appearance of dark spots I acquired from a stint I went through with using tanning salons (before my better judgment kicked in).
After two weeks of using the Deep Exfoliating Wash I started to incorporate the toner into my regime. Although I really didn’t see that much of a difference in terms of decreasing uneven skin tone I did noticed that I started to experiences some dryness.
A couple weeks after I received the products my rep Heather reached out to me to see how I was making out. Once I conveyed my experience to her and told her about the dryness I was experiencing she told me that R+F allows for users to completely customize their 4 Step regime and offered to send me samples of two serums, one for the face and one for the lips, and two moisturizers, one for the day and one for night to try. Perfect!
Once these products were introduced to my skincare regime I was so happy to see my skin looking clearer, feeling softer and for the most part having an even tone. I’m especially surprised at how well my skin is holding up this winter with the crazy cold winds, friction from being bundled in big scarf’s, and the fluctuations in temperature!
Now having used R+F for almost 5-6 months I am happy to recommend their line to anyone dealing with skincare issues, anyone who wants to buy a skincare routine customized for them without spending crazy money or is a skincare junkie like me. No matter what you are, you can also be on your way to a clearer skin, just ask Heather!
