In the beauty world, makeup represents outer beauty while skincare handles inner beauty. (Of course, real inner beauty is a lot more than moisturizing daily, but here we stick to the simple stuff.) One of my beauty goals this year is to get more naturally, just-waking-up beautiful. That journey starts and ends with great skincare.
Enter Rodan + Fields, a skincare company created by dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields (who created Proactiv – what more credibility do you need than that?). I’m into science – I trust it – so I love knowing that there’s some good healthy research behind my skincare products, and Rodan + Fields has research in spades.
I tried a few goodies from Rodan + Fields, the first being their REDEFINE Eye Cloths. These are similar to your typical makeup removal cloths, but with consideration for healthy skin built right in. They remove makeup without tugging while depositing skincare ingredients that combat the visible signs of aging. The unique blend of proven peptides minimizes the appearance of lines, wrinkles and under-eye puffiness while dissolving stubborn eye makeup, even mascara.
Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before? I love knowing that I’m making my face healthier while I take off my eye makeup. Since I have issues with my undereye area and I wear eyeliner every day, this product’s a keeper for me.
I also had the luxury of trying a mini facial pack which included the Rodan + Fields Enhancements Microdermabrasion Paste, Redefine Night Renewing Serum and Redefine Lip Renewing Serum. I scrubbed on the microdermabrasion paste in the morning without adding water and noticed an immediate difference in the softness of my skin. It felt smooth and youthful immediately after use and stayed that way all day.
At night, I applied the other two serums. They both soaked in well, and I wish my lips always looked like they look with the Lip Renewing Serum on. Maybe soon they will!
After trying Rodan + Fields, I’m definitely a convert. Good skincare science makes for good skin.
