Dermatologist developed skin care range, Rodan and Fields, was developed by two Stanford trained Dermatologists, Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields. Previously, they developed Proactiv and licensed the products to Guthy Renker. Rodan and Fields was purchased in 2003 by Estee Lauder Companies but the business still operated somewhat independently. Rodan and Fields launched on QVC and it has been highly popular since. Rodan and Fields could previously be purchased from high end department stores but it is now concentrating on multi level direct selling through consultants.
Rodan and Fields provides an excellent business opportunity for women who are passionate about skin care and selling products through friends and family. Their multiplier effect allows consultants to earn significant commission through Multi Level Marketing. Rodan and Fields has a pile of glowing reviews from consumers and very few negative reviews on the internet. Rodan + Fields has been featured in Oprah Magazine, Allure, New Beauty and Vogue.
Rodan and Fields has four product categories, including Redefine for aging, Reverse for age spots and uneven skin tone, Unblemish for acne and acne breakouts and Sooth for sensitive, irritated skin conditions, such as Roacea. They also have enhancments that supplement the range, including ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste, ENHANCEMENTS Mineral Peptides Broad Spectrum SPF 20, MAXIMUM D3® Vitamin D Supplement and AMP MD™ Purification Tablets. For the purposes of this Rodan and Field review, we have concentrated on facial products and overlooked any body or make up products. We may revisit this in future but right now we are only interested in performance skin care. Fo the first part of the review, we have evaluated REDEFINE and Reverse. For the second part of the review, we will look at Unblemish and Smooth.
First, REDEFINE is anti aging line that contains REDEFINE Daily Cleaning Mask, REDEFINE Pore Minimizing Toner, REDEFINE Tripple Defense Broad Spectrum Treatment and REDEFINE Overnight Restoration Cream. The range can be complemented with REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream, REDEFINE Eye Cloths and REDEFINE MACRO Exfoliator. The product claims to help with loss of firmness, elasticity, fine lines and the appearance of pores. The products contain high concentrations of peptides, antioxidants and other anti aging ingredients to help fight the signs of aging. These products are superior to other anti aging skin care products, however, they are expensive and only represent average value for money. Second, REVERSE is a skin care regimen for brown spots, dullness and uneven skin tone. REVERSE Regimen including Deep Exfoliating Wash, Skin Lightening Toner, Skin Lightening Treatment and REVERSE Broad Spectrum. Various products in this range contain hydroquinone, which is the gold standard for skin lightening. It contains the maximum strength of hydroquinone that is available over the counter without a prescription. This range also contains retinol and other skin lightening ingredients. Make sure you wear a sunscreen when using this range.
The Advanced Dermatology skin care regimen addresses the most pressing aging concerns. It can be used by men and women in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond. This award-winning system can help diminish wrinkle appearance, reduce dark spots and hyperpigmentation, fade away redness, even out skin tone and improve the appearance of eye bags and dark circles. Some of the standout products in this line include the Super Youth Serum, Complete Age Defense and Anti-Wrinkle Firming Night Treatment. The Super Youth Serum specifically targets fine lines and deep wrinkles with super moisturizing ingredients including shea butter and squalane as well as antioxidants like vitamin E. The Complete Age Defense helps combat skin laxity and wrinkling with argan oil, hyaluronic acid and squalane (all highly moisturizing ingredients that help keep skin hydrated and plump). Another ingredient, resveratrol, works as an antioxidant to protect against free radicals that cause wrinkling and sagging in the first place. The Anti-Wrinkle Firming Night Treatment goes to work while you sleep to aid skin in the natural repairing process. It includes hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, palmitoyl tripeptide-5 and palmitoyl dipeptide-5. Palmitoyl tripeptide-5 is believed to play a role in skin firmness while palmitoyl dipeptide-5 helps stimulate collagen production.
The philosophy of Formulyst is long-term and effective skincare, rather than covering up any imperfections. The comprehensive line of products tackles everything from wrinkles to dark spots and dry skin. While some brands rely on unnecessary fillers and scents, Formulyst focuses on ingredients that help create results, such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Many of the Formulyst’s products harness the power of plant and citrus extracts as well as gold-standard workhorses such as retinol.
