(fyi- i originally posted this in November but it’s the truth about how i feel – even more so in April! 🙂 )
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.
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 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:
Reverse Regimen – twice a day
Amp MD roller – nightly
(i highly recommend the regimen that includes a roller!)
micro-dermabrasion paste ….. night renewing serum ….. lip renewing serum – once a week
here is the part where i show my skin close up – unedited – no make-up…. YIKES!
but LOOK at this!
THIS is why i love rodan & fields!
i love the way my skin looks and feels..
here are some “business-y” reasons i like R&F.Rodan & Fields has a 60 Day Satisfaction Guarantee with full refund if you don’t love it.
how cool is that?they have a Preferred Customer Program that gives a 10% discount on each order and free shipping!
this is the most cost effective way to purchase products (other than becoming a consultant) ;)doctors katie rodan & kathy fields are also the makers of Proactiv! they aren’t newbies.if you are interested in R&F you can look at the website HERE & use the Solution Tool to find out which regimen is best for your skin needs.
you can ask me any questions you have – either here in the comments, through email or through FB messenger.
i’d love to help you feel great about your skin.
if you would like to become a consultant, whether to have a small business or as big as you can dream kind of business – i can help connect you with the right people there too. i’m sticking with the small side but i will cheer you on all the way if you go big.(i was a cheerleader in high school – i know lots of cheers!)
