With so many innovative skincare formulas on the market, there is no reason why you shouldn’t have a skincare regime. Rodan + Fields products have a bit of a cult-like following so we wanted to see what all the buzz was about.
Our beauty writer Mel put the products to the test:
Now let’s just get the price out of the way. This isn’t a cheap and cheerful beauty routine. It’s a regime. That sounds intense, but it’s not. It’s a no-fuss 5 step beauty routine that cleans, hydrates and exfoliates. Let me promise you, the products do go a long way.
The REDEFINE Regime will set you back $285 but includes a daily cleansing mask, a toner, an SPF defense treatment (triple defense!) and an overnight cream.
The REDEFINE daily cleansing mask is definitely a standout. It’s a creamy, Kaolin clay-based cleansing mask that you massage in and let dry for two minutes. It’s a finely granulated exfoliator so it didn’t feel harsh on my skin and afterwards my skin is smoother and cleaner. I did notice after a about fortnight some of my pimple scarring had reduced.
My skin concern is dry and dehydration so I added in the Active Hydration Serum. It contains active hyaluronic acid and glycerin which is perfect for not only locking moisture in your skin, but putting it back in. It is also extremely lightweight – it almost feels like you’re putting water on your face, so it doesn’t give you a sticky or oily feeling. My skin absorbed it extremely quickly so I didn’t have to worry about it coming off on my bed sheets. This one will set you back $154. I fell in love with this guy. It’s my new best friend.
I followed that up with the REDEFINE Overnight Restorative Cream, and my skin was seriously hydrated. I was worried about breakouts because this is a rich product but it had the opposite effect – when I got hormonal pimples I still put it on and I saw a noticeable difference in the inflammation overnight. No skin products have ever done that.
Now that’s why I am hooked, why is everyone else? Rodan + Fields founders Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields are actually dermatologists. They work with everyday patients and know what works and what doesn’t. They were actually the founders of Proactiv, but Rodan + Fields does way more than destroy those pimples!
For those who want a no fuss easy skincare routine that exfoliates, reduces dullness and seriously hydrates – then this is for you.
