|Rodan+Fields samples that I received to test out!|
I wanted to give you guys a little background and information on Rodan+Fields. Before Glambassador, I've never heard of this skincare line before, but I became really interested in this brand. This brand is renowned by 2 dermatologists; Dr Katie Rodan and Dr Kathy. It's a skincare brand built on dermatology-based skincare products backed by clinically proven results.They cover a lot of common skin concerns that people with any age deal with. If you check out their website: www.karenfaryna.myrandf.biz/ca/, you will see all the skincare products that they carry. They have products to Redefine, Reverse, Unblemish, Soothe and Enhancements. You may be wondering, there's a lot of skincare brands out there. What makes Rodan+Fields different? Well, as I was going through their website, I came across this little paragraph that really got me interested in their products and it answers this question:
"Rodan + Fields products are based on Stanford-trained dermatologists’, Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, philosophy of Multi-Med® Therapy. This regimen-based approach to treating common skin concerns combines over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceutical and active cosmetic ingredients in the right combination with optimized, elegant formulations to deliver clinically proven results, without a visit to the dermatologist’s office. All regimens undergo third party clinical tests to ensure safety and efficacy. Our products are backed by a 60-day money back guarantee"The fact that it's two dermatologists that own this company is an amazing thing, because they know exactly what a consumer is looking for and how to treat their concerns! This company also has a 60 day guarantee, which is amazing! They were also featured in Allure, Essence, Bazaar and a whole bunch of stuff! They're also the #1 Premium Anti Aging Brand in the U.S. They have a lot going for them and I was really excited to receive the samples from Karen (who is a independent consultant) . They have a lot of products, but I received only the Micro Dermabrasion Paste and the anti aging serum. If you're interested in this brand, click on the link above. The website is very informative! It's in great detail and it tells you exactly what each product is meant to do! You can even buy bundles to save money! Right now, they only ship to the United States and Canada. If you have any questions, I would suggest contacting Karen. You can find her on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/randfkarenfaryna/! or you can call or text her at 604-644-3083. She's also on Instagram @skincare_lady22. She features amazing before and after pictures with the results of the Rodan+Fields products!

Let's get into the samples that I received from Karen. She sent me samples that are 3 weeks worth (even more than that), which is perfect, because I love to test out the product as much as I can before reviewing it. As mentioned, I received the Micro-Dermabrasion Paste and the anti aging serum. The Micro Dermabrasion Paste is to promote gentle exfoliation. You can use it intermittently to enhance cell turnover and improve skin tone and texture. It contains vitamin C and E. It also smooths any rough spots on your face. It's a white paste with beads. It's a sugar and salt scrub. I like the texture of it, it doesn't feel rough, even though it has the beads in it. It glides on the skin smoothly and it doesn't feel oily. This product retails for $90CAD. If you guys just want to try this out and not dedicate to the full size, they also have the paste packets for sell (the same exact thing that I received!). It's $49CAD. It gives you a chance to just test it out! The anti aging serum comes in these blue and silver capsules. They look tiny, but one capsule is supposed to cover your whole face! The serum feels really moisturizing! It creates this luminous look, but it doesn't feel oily.

These products are really easy to use! The paste is meant to use at night. So, once you remove your makeup and you used a cleanser, you can apply the paste. Without water, you massage the paste all over your face for 60 seconds. I like to use circular motions to really get the scrub working into my skin. This is optional, but next, I let the scrub sit on my face for 2 minutes. Then, you rinse off the paste. You pat dry your face and then, you apply the small blue capsule of the anti aging serum. That's it! It really doesn't take long to do! It's the perfect mini facial before bedtime!
Now, let's talk about my thoughts on these products. I find the Micro Dermabrasion Paste is a really nice product! It gently exfoliated my skin and it left my skin feeling super smooth! I love how the product wasn't harsh on my skin and after I wash off the product, I love how polished my skin looked! It also looked a lot healthier! In terms of improving my skin tone and texture, I did see a difference, but it was after 2 weeks of use (I used it 3 times a week!). So, it definitely does work, but you have to use it a few times to really notice it! Sometimes exfoliaters leave my skin feeling dry, but this wasn't the case at all! Overall, I really do like it! It's a bit pricey, but honestly you see the results! It's a good investment!
Now for the anti aging serum. I love how the serum doesn't leave your face feeling oily. It also feels really hydrating on the skin! I find this product also helped my skin look a lot more healthier and radiant! It just feels so nice on the skin! In terms of anti aging, I'm only 24 years old, so it's definitely not the product for me. Even though, I love the way that the serum felt, I didn't see a anti aging effect, because I'm still young. However, if you have mature skin, this may be a really nice product for you to try! Even though I don't have mature skin, it did leave my skin feeling and looking a lot healthier!
Overall, I'm really impressed with this brand! Their products are at a top quality, which is always a good thing with skincare products! They cover so many skin concerns, so definitely go check out the website! You guys can also contact Karen, whose really knowledgeable on the products and will give you great advice! I hope you guys enjoyed this review! I'm always open to trying new brands and products! So ya, if you have recommendations for my next post, let me know :)
