I feel like I am always worrying about my skin. Whether I am trying to keep my acne under control, which I thought by this time in my life, would be the last thing on my mind. I try to make sure that I am taking care of it, so that it doesn’t age at the speed of light.
I am also always trying to find the best skincare for my skin, and keep the aging down to a snails pace. I feel like I have tried almost everything on the market. I am not sure if I am just really picky, or if what I am trying is just not fitting my needs. I have combination skin, and if I get a cleanser that is moisturizing, my skin feels oily when I wake up, and if I use a cleanser for oily skin, then my cheeks dry out and will peel.
It is such a conundrum! I have tried so many cleanses and systems that I have a huge box of products in my bathroom closet. I have tried Proactive, more than once. I was not such a fan, and I didn’t feel like my acne cleared up so easily like those commercials say. In fact, I guess my skin is pretty sensitive because the toner full-on burned my skin! My chin formed a scab in the shape of the cotton ball that I used the toner on a pimple. Needless to say, don’t let toner sit on your face.
So, when I found out that my cousin was beginning her own business to become a consultant for Rodan and Fields, I couldn’t resit asking her if she would be willing to send me some products to try. I have heard so many good things about Rodan and Fields products, and it seemed a little more grown up to me than Proactive. Luckily my cousin loves me, and she agreed to help me in my quest to find something that will work for my manic-depressive skin.
I was so happy when she agreed because Rodan and Fields can be a little expensive, so it’s always nice to know if you really like the product before you invest your hard earn money into it. However, I was more that pleased to find out that they’re not messing around here. I took into perspective that there are a lot of skin care products that charge a lot of money for just one product. You may have seen my Lancome obsession picture on Twitter or Instagram this week and I can get an entire Rodan and Fields system for almost what I pay for one department store cream.
So let’s get to it. I was spoiled by my cousin Kelli and she sent me two systems to try out of six to choose from. The different types of systems you can get are:
- Reverse – For brown spots, dullness and sun damage
- Soothe – For Sensitive, irritated skin and facial redness
- Unblemish – For acne and post-acne marks
- Anti-Age – For wrinkles, pores and loss of firmness
- Essentials – Everyday Dermatological necessities
- Enhancements – Optimizing the results of your regimen with makeup
