Disclosure~Products received for honest review
When you hear “Dermatologist-created skincare products” it sounds legit, right? I thought so! I was excited to be able to try out the Rodan & Fields REDEFINE ACUTE CARE systems!!!
Drs. Rodan and Fields are the minds behind the wildly successful (and often knocked off!) Proactiv® Solution. So far these products sound great! Well, to me at least. Words mean very little to me if that’s all that there is to be excited about. I’m a results driven person and I want to see results or lose interest very quickly. I will show you how the Rodan & Fields REDEFINE ACUTE CARE system worked for me.
The REDEFINE Regimen comes with the following full-sized products: Daily Cleansing Mask 125 mL/4.2 Fl.Oz., Pore Minimizing Toner 125 mL/4.2 Fl.Oz., Triple Defense Treatment SPF 30 30 mL/1.0 Fl.Oz., and Overnight Restorative Cream 30 mL/1.0 Fl.Oz.
The instructions on now to use the Redefine regimen can be found here on the Rodan+Fields website.
Step one is the Daily Cleansing Mask. I used the Daily Cleansing Mask with my skin cleansing brush. The brush I use is much gentler than a sonic brush type so I didn’t feel that I would be over exfoliating by combining the two skin care products.
Step two is the Pore Minimizing Toner. I don’t like to use any applicator when I am using skin toners. I cup a bit into my hands and splash into onto my skin. That way there’s no waste going into the trash. And it’s a using less product by sparing the q-tip or cotton ball, or whatever you usually use. It’s good to slap your face a little bit too when you apply your toner. At least I think it’s a good thing.
Step three gets a little complicated, but only if you don’t have any means to tell time. You will either use the Triple Defense Treatment SPF 30 or the Overnight Restorative Cream. It depends on when you are doing the regimen. The biggest differences are that there is exclusive SHIELDrf sunscreen technology which gives you broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 30 protection while firming your skin and softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The Overnight Restorative Cream has time released skin nutrients that work hard while you sleep!
This regimen is as easy to use as it sounds. The products all smell so amazing too. They have a faint floral and clean scent.
After you use the REDEFINE ACUTE CARE skincare regimen, it’s time to break out the ACUTE CARE™ Skincare for Expression Lines!
These patches are everything!
The ACUTE CARE™ Skincare for Expression Lines have recently been made available as a stand alone item. They aren’t cheap for sure. I am reusing the strips from my last eye treatment in the picture above. The patches still have life in them in the morning. There isn’t quite enough adhesive to keep them on my undereye area but they stick just fine to my nasolabial areas! A heads up to those with sensitive skin/nerves or sensory issues. The patches have tiny little points on the inside. When you put the patches on, you will feel them a little. It is not really a painful feeling in my experience but it is noticeable for a little bit. I was not warned when I first put the patches on so I was surprised. That being said, if you aren’t able to tolerate the sensation, Rodan+Fields has a 60 day satisfaction guarantee. Please read the information on the website for more details. You can put these patches where you want to work on wrinkles, I think that is really smart and am very happy with the results I got. I have a few more weeks to go on these patches too!
I guess you want to see my results. Maybe?
The other “before” pics I took were too bright to show anything so I don’t have an exact matching pose without makeup on to show you. The lines under my eyes have definitely softened up. You can see in the bottom picture on the bottom left that I still have the impression from wearing the patch overnight. Admittedly, my facial lines and wrinkles are not too deep…yet! I prefer to attack aging preemptively!
Would I replace these products? Maybe on the cleanser/toner/moisturizer regimen. I still have a lot of product to go! I really would like to keep going with the eye patches based on the results to date. I have 3 more weeks worth of treatments left since I wasn’t regular in my using them.
What do YOU think? Worth it? Not so much? Tell me what you think!
Thanks to iFabbo an Rodan+Fields for this opportunity!!
