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

I’m going to ask the obvious question – did the roller cause any discomfort? You described it as having “needles” (yikes!)

I should have been more specific. The needles are not sharp, and they are so close together that it did not hurt at all. However, I was gentle on my skin. If you pressed hard, you could do some damage and possibly puncture your skin, but the directions are to lightly roll all over your face in sections. It just felt like I was exfolitating. Thanks for your question!
I know that this is an old post, but I was just wondering if you are still happy with this product and whether your cousin has had a good experience with her business. I have been looking at these products for awhile and have not seen anything regarding the long term use of the product.
I have the same question as Tonia…are you still using this product line? If so, what are your current thoughts?
My Thirty Spot says
Well, I have to be honest. I liked the SOOTHE solutions but I LOVED Anti-age solution. I actually heard that they took it off the market a few months ago, but it might be back. They were just waiting for the roller to be FDA approved. I liked the serum and the pin roller a lot. I do think it made a difference. I didn’t continue to use the Soothe. I actually use a higher SPF of 50 and the cleanser was nice and not harsh, but I never bought any more.
I hope that helped.
I’m thinking about initially buying the Reverse system, with the macro exfoliator…..but it appears to be in an autoship order format……..I know I can delay a shipment BUT for how long can I delay OR can even opt out or anymore shipments?
I am excited about the macro exfoliator more than anything, and I want to give the Reverse a try……
So I guess I’m asking am I held to these products be it indivdual or packages for life meaning my card being charged……they do need my permission to charge me in the future correct? Can I cancel any future orders and never to be charged again……
I know with Proactiv they preferred you do autoship and yes you could opt out at any time, never to be charged again….I just want to make sure that is the case here because skin changes, reaction to products changes, finances change and all these things could occur AFTER the 60 day money back if not satisfied……. Let’s be honest….I just want to make sure what I am signing up for….

I wish I could answer any of your questions, but I was never a consultant or sold these products. I just tried them out and wrote my review of what I thought of Rodan and Fields. You should be able to find a consultant that can answer these questions.

Hi there! I am a consultant for Rodan + Fields and saw that the post above was not answered, SO…First of all I want to say thank you for your fantastic, honest review! to answer the question, yes, you can defer your shipment for as long as you want. You can cancel at any time, and can also change your order to other products if you want. The PC Perks program is very flexible. Also, all products come with a 60 day, empty bottle, $$$ back guarantee, so if you don’t like it you can return it for a full refund. I hope this helps!!!
