my 41 year old fresh face

soooo… 6 months ago i became a Rodan & Fields consultant.
but less than 10 people in my life know that.
i didn’t (and don’t) want to pressure anyone or make anyone feel weird about it.
so i am just going to be totally honest and tell you all about it.

last winter i got a FB message from someone i knew online… sort of.
her name was familiar but i wasn’t sure why.
she asked if i’d ever considered trying Rodan & Fields skincare?
i answered “it’s funny you asked me that because YES! i am wondering what all the fuss is about”
we chatted a bit and then i looked at the website… it’s pricey.
she messaged me a few weeks later “did you get a chance to look it over – what were your thoughts?”
i said “hey thanks but i am not ready to invest that much into skin care.”
she was kind and understanding.

a few more weeks later she said “i’m mailing out some mini facial kits and i’d love to send you one”
i thought “you’re not going to change my mind but i’ll take the free facial”

it arrived in the mail and sat on my counter for probably a month.

the past few years i have been frustrated with my skin.
it looked dull, my freckles had all merged together to make big splotches, still breaking out often and leaving scars, my pores were big and i suddenly was oily when my whole life i’ve had normal to dry skin.  i was needing more make-up to cover up the spots and scars.  i was increasingly bummed at my skin every morning and every evening.
i have always used the most basic face washes & lotions. (aka: the cheapest)
my skin care routine was not fancy…  but also not working.

one night i picked up the mini facial kit.
i had no expectations whatsoever.
i put the micro-dermabrasion paste on as instructed then washed it off and put on the night renewing serum.
it was AMAaaaaaaazing!!!

you guys…   seriously.

my face had NEVER felt like this before.
never ever.
it was the softest my skin has ever felt.
it was smooth and fresh!
i was freaking out on in the bathroom talking to myself  “what is this stuff?! it feels like rainbows and unicorns and angels washed my face!”

i couldn’t believe how it made my skin feel!

my next thought was “well dang it… now i want to use this stuff everyday!”
but i was still not in love with the cost.

i asked my three girlfriends that i talk to every single day “has anyone tried Rodan & Fields?  is anyone interested in trying it?”
all three had been wondering about it and all three said they were ready to try it.

and so i decided to become a consultant for all of us.
the girl who didn’t want to even try it a few months ago was convinced to sell it in one use?


i also knew that everyone would love it as much as i did when they tried it.

i like discounts.  i like sales.  i like paying less!
after researching it a bit i realized the most inexpensive way to use R&F was to become a consultant.
i figured i had really had nothing to lose so i signed up.
my husband used the phrase “it’s a no brainer”
my consultant who i didn’t even “know” and had never met was quite surprised by that text.
ha ha ha
i started with the Reverse regimen and each of my three friends picked a regimen as well.
and it has been sooooo great!
i have used it morning and night since may.
my sun spots/freckles have almost completely disappeared!
my break outs are 99% gone and when i do have a blemish it is very top surface layer and they go away very quickly.
my skin looks even and fresh!


i also got my mom started on it… then two more girlfriends… and even my teenager on the Unblemish regimen.

i asked some of them to share a quick thought on their feelings of R&F the past 6 months.

“I have a lot of redness and sun damage. Since I started using the redefine it is so much better!!!  I don’t feel like i have to makeup every day to cover it up. Definitely feel happier in my own skin! ”

“I am a grandmother; I have very mature dry skin. I have been using the Rodan + Fields Reverse for 3 months. I love it. My skin still has wrinkles but the age/sun spots are much lighter and my skin is much softer.”


“I love the way the entire texture of my skin changed. My skin is so smooth now. I feel like my pores are smaller and less noticeable too. It also smells so clean and feels so light on my skin. It’s an investment for sure, but after 40 years of cheaper products, I can really tell a huge difference in using r&f for just a few months.”

“The products are so amazing that I finally have found a skin care regimen I can stick with!”

here are the products i am personally using:

meg duerksen - Hi Christine! I can still be your consultant even if you live in Canada. Yay!! But if for some reason you have trouble just let me know. 🙂

Christine Birch - Hi Meg,

I’m back in Canada now. Should I find a local consultant?


kasandra - Hi Meg! I am interested in becoming a consultant and am having trouble finding this info on your website. Would you mind pointing me in the right direction? Thanks and Happy New Year!

Julie Briggs - Meg can you email me about the lash boost special going on??

Wanda - I am very interested in the reverse regimen but I need to know if the products are unscented?

Michele - I’ve been wanting to try…esp. that roller?! Any way I can get samples to see how my skin reacts?

meg duerksen - Annette – R&F suggests talking to your doctor first about rosacea

Annette - Is there anything for rosacea?

Amy T-Y - Sent you a Facebook message!

Patti - Charlene – I can relate! Is there a way to get a sample before we invest?

Patti - I will turn 51 come January…my skin is very dry all of a sudden and is splotchy…..any reviews for *ahem* women of my age? i’m definitely interested.

Carla - Hi Meg, thanks for your review. You’ve sure piqued my interest. Could you please contact me via email, I have some questions for you. Thanks!

Laurie McNeil - I am so excited about this product. I have sun spots that I would
love to see go bye-bye. I have a dry face. I do get a little bit of oil on my forehead. I think I need the package you are using.
Do we buy it from you?

meg duerksen - Marjie – you definitely can switch! after you correct your skin then you keep wearing sunscreen and can use the Redefine. great question! let me know if you have more questions!

Suzette - Oops…spell check changed Unblemish to Unblemished.

Suzette - Hi Meg, I looked at the site. If I became a consultant, would I be under you? And how do the prices differ? I’m thinking of Reverse for me and Unblemished for my 17-y-o. Email me when you get a chance.

Laura - Meg, I used the solution tool and now need to get started. Help?

Lindsey - Hey Meg- I’d love to have some information about becoming a consultant! My skin has always been a problem for me!

Marjie - I am wondering if I use the Reverse line first, can I then switch over to Redefine for long term use? Or do you choose one and stick with it indefinitely? Thanks!

meg duerksen - Hi Abby. I would start with Soothe then add Unblemish in later. After a round (or two) of soothe you could use soothe in the morning and Unblemish at night.

meg duerksen - I will email you Terri! Regimens last 60 days – usually more.

Terri - Hi Meg,

I also have freckles that are merging together. Would love some info on being a consultant and wondering how long the supplies last – one month?

Lori - Your before and after pictures are amazing!

Heidi - I have to say, I keep seeing people that use R+F and they post before and after photos, and I always wondered because it was just a random person. Putting your OWN photo out there is what sells it! Good luck with your business!

Abby - Do you know if any of these (I’m guessing the soothe regimen?) work well with psoriasis? My skin gets irritated easily and I get psoriasis (chronic dry skin) breakouts across my forehead and nose sometimes… but along with acne so I can never figure out how to treat both. I’ve been curious for a long time about Rodan & Fields..

Leia - I would like info on becoming a consultant as well 😊

Jen - Meg, thank you always for your honesty. You were beautiful before you started R + F, but I see what you mean, spots are gone. Your skin looks great! If it weren’t for the high price, I would order from you today. I see how many people I know that have earned a Lexus SUV from R + F in less than 2 years and I feel that’s what my money would be going toward. It’s just really too expensive, but yes, the results are clear.

meg duerksen - Mary I’ll email you later tonight 🙂

meg duerksen - Hey Sara!!! What did you want info on specifically.

meg duerksen - A regimen will last 60 days and often more. ☺️

Mary Hanna - Meg, I am interested in information about becoming a consultant. Would you please send me some info? Thanks, Mary

Amy - How long does the $199 system last you? That is a huge investment, but depending on how long it lasts it may be doable.

Sara - Info please! 🙂

Jenny B. - Oh, I just saw that you linked the “Solution Tool,” so I am looking at that for my son’s acne. 🙂

meg duerksen - i sent you an email tammy

Jenny B. - Your before and after is insane! R+F has been flying low under my radar other than the Facebook posts I’ve seen from other consultants from time to time. I am not ready to try it (no $$ to spend right now), but your post certainly made me give it more thought than any other I’ve seen. 🙂 I’m at least happy for you that you are happy with your skin! I do have a couple of questions… Proactiv always bleached out my towels and sheets. Does R+F do that too? Also, my almost-12-year-old has started breaking out a lot. What products would be recommended for him (would have to be LOW maintenance as he is still struggling with basic hygiene at this point). 🙂

Tammy - Hi Meg,
I saw your instagram post – I am 52 and concerned about wrinkles but also have developed what is called cystic acne (acne under the skin). Will any of these products help the cystic acne?
Thanks _ Tammy Allen

meg duerksen - i just sent you an email charlene 🙂

Charlene Carlascio - Hi Meg,
I follow you on Instagram and saw your post….I am 62 and have dull skin with blotches and dry spots and some redness….I did look at the RF website…and wasn’t sure where to start….can you help me?
