Chances are you’ve probably heard about Rodan + Fields, a premium skincare brand used by Ellen DeGeneres, Britney Spears (!!), and many more. I recently had the opportunity to try out the Reverse Skin Care Regimen to combat the appearance of skin dullness, discoloration and uneven skin tone, which included a Redefine Amp It Up! system to help combat fine lines and wrinkles. So, is it what it’s hyped up to be?!
Read on to hear all about my experience..
At the start of the new year, one of my main focuses has shifted to skin care. Unfortunately, I have quite a bit of sun damage from using tanning beds, especially on my face. I have suffered from redness for a really long time, and for the record, I know tanning is horrible for my skin and I have cut down my use of the beds significantly. I also cover my face on the rare times that I do tan, simply because I’ve seen how horrible the effects have been on my face thus far. But, all in all, I have realized that I am WAY TOO YOUNG to have the damage and wrinkles that are slowly starting to appear all over my face! So, in an effort to be proactive, I decided to really start focusing on my skin care routine and have set a resolution for this year to be extremely committed to it!
As soon as I received my regimen, I got started right away. The thing about skin care is that you HAVE to be totally committed to it for it to be effective. Meaning, gone are the days of being “too lazy” to take off my makeup EVERY single night, washing my face, and using skin care products before bed!!
The regimen came in a beautiful package, full of instructions on how to use each step of the system. I will admit, I was a little overwhelmed at first seeing all of the different steps, because a) I have never done a regimen before like this, and b) it is QUITE a process – but I got used to it quickly! I learned to carve out about 20-30 minutes before bed each night to complete each step of the regimen, and to be honest, I really LOVED using this time to start winding down and to have my own little “spa” experience.
I know it sounds crazy, but I began seeing results almost right away. They say each regimen takes about 8-10 weeks to complete, so you definitely need to be prepared to have some patience, but seeing the results so quickly made me feel even more confident in the product!
I was really impressed with my before and afters! I noticed that the regimen removed most of the sun spots on my forehead and cheeks! I still have a little bit of redness, but overall, my skin is much brighter and healthier looking! No more dullness! 🙂
During the time of starting my regimen, I also started with the Lash Boost! I had heard about this magical serum before, but I felt like my eyelashes were already so long and that a product for lash growth probably wouldn’t benefit me at all. Boy, was I wrong!
I am so glad I gave the Lash Boost a chance because my results are incredible. At one point, I even began to think that my lashes were getting “too long” if that’s even a thing! 😉 My before and after speaks for itself:
I also used the Active Hydration Serum in conjunction with my regimen and I LOVED IT! It made my skin feel so, so amazing.
All in all, I am extremely pleased with the regimen, and I plan to continue use of this product as a way to be proactive about my skin while I am still at an age to make a difference about it. I think that many times, women my age (25) don’t think about skin care until it’s too late. I am definitely going to be better about using sunscreen with my makeup this summer (sunscreen comes in the Reverse kit!) and staying aware of how much time I am spending in the sun/tanning beds. I have also realized the importance of taking my makeup off every single night before bed and using products, like R+F, that will work for me while I sleep! Did you know that not taking your makeup off every night will age you by SEVEN YEARS?!
I would definitely recommend trying a regimen for anyone who has considered it, or is skeptical. I most definitely consider it as an investment, because you are getting so much value for the price you pay, and it lasts forever! I am super excited to try even more products from Rodan + Fields!
