My husband and I were married in July of 2009. In the November that followed, my skin changed drastically for the worse. I was breaking out constantly. I tried absolutely everything from dermatological procedures and expensive skin care lines to organic toxin-free products and food cleanses. Nothing seemed to help and I was desperate. I was a high school teacher at the time and felt self-conscious on a daily basis. My skin troubles continued into my first pregnancy and then one day, my skin improved. It may have been the probiotic I switched to or the new skin regime I was trying (coconut oil as both cleanser and moisturizer and a homemade toner). I’m not sure why it happened, but I was relieved.
I continued using my “hippy” skincare for the next few years and was quite happy to be relatively acne-free, until I started noticing deep frown lines – thank you motherhood. I was lamenting my frown lines to a friend this summer and she suggested that perhaps my coconut oil concoctions didn’t have enough anti-aging properties for my 30-something skin. She suggested it might be worth looking into an actual skincare line. I thought about it and figured it was worth a shot.
I’d been seeing a lot of posts about Rodan + Fields and was considering that as an option. Then, one summer night, I met a good friend for a glass of wine and commented on how wonderful her skin looked. Her response was,” Rodan + Fields”. It was a sign from the universe. That night, I contacted lovely local mama, Adrienne Hall, who I’d connected with through my Travelling Tots Programs and who later became a facilitator for my programs. She’d never once approached me about the products, but I knew she was a Rodan + Fields Consultant. I told her what I wanted out of the skincare and she recommend Rodan + Fields Redefine Line.
The ordering process was simple. Adrienne took my order and it shipped directly to my house within a week. The products last 2 – 3 months. Within a month, I felt like my skin looked different. I don’t think the Redefine Line alone will eliminate my frown lines (if that’s even possible), so I will be looking into some of their other products. Below are my before and after photos, the first on August 2nd was before starting the regime and the second just over 3 months of Redefine use. I am not wearing makeup in either photo.

Rodan + Fields started out being sold in high-end stores like Bloomingdales but changed to a direct sales method to make it more accessible. What I love about the model is that consultants do not need to stock or store product. They make a commission off of the sale of products that they order online for their clients. All Rodan + Fields products are backed with a 60-day empty-bottle money-back guarantee! I like it!
