Thank you to Rodan + Fields for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Ever since I was a little girl, my mother has instilled in me the importance of a sound skincare routine. Since then, I’ve taken extremely good care of my skin making sure to use the highest quality products such as cleansers, day creams, night creams, and eye creams. Now that I’m in my 30’s, I want to take extra good care of my skin, so I chose to start the New + Improved Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Regimen + Multi-Function Eye Cream.
As a full-time travel journalist and explorer, I encounter a multitude of harsh climates on a regular basis. I could be skiing in Jackson Hole one week and taking a long-haul flight to report in Bora Bora the next. Now, I’m definitely not complaining because I love my job wholeheartedly, but these harsh environments take a toll on my skin.
As I entered my 30’s, I started to notice the effects of my time in the sun with hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and some loss in elasticity. You know, all the things my mother warned me about when I was worshipping the sun on the Jersey Shore as a teenager. (Why do moms always know best?!) I knew that I needed to graduate from the typical drugstore products. I upgraded to a multi-functional customized anti-aging routine that helps enhances my natural skin cell turnover, hydrates my skin, visibly firms my skin, and protects me from signs of aging. The Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Regimen + Multi-Function Eye Cream have made a noticeable improvement and difference on my skin.
The REDEFINE Regimen is a dermatology-inspired skincare regimen and solution that has clinically tested results to address the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of firmness. Created by the brilliant female doctor duo of Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, the team combined their extensive experience as board certified dermatologists with state-of-the-art science and technology to create this groundbreaking skincare system. The REDEFINE Regimen is a simple, three-step dermatology-inspired routine.
- Cleanser: The REDEFINE Daily Foaming Cleanser is a creamy cleanser that removes my makeup and cleanses my face all in one. It contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) that gently exfoliate and help visibly improve my uneven skin texture. The cleanser also includes Ectoin, a natural amino acid that helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Lastly, it includes Glyceryl Glucoside, a sugar derivative that also reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Toner: This toner has a soothing application that also exfoliates the skin to prepare it to absorb my moisturizer. The toner gently exfoliates my skin to enhance natural skin turnover. It includes incredible ingredients like Vitamin B3, Deep Sea Water from an island off the coast of France, and fruit acids that promote smoother-feeling skin texture.
- Day Cream with SPF 30: In the daytime, I use the REDEFINE Triple Defense Lotion with SPF 30. This is a lightweight moisturizer with SPF 30 inside to protect my skin from harmful UV rays. Since I’m out in the sun a LOT, this helps me immensely! The Improved REDEFINE Triple Defense Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 contains the RF3 antioxidant complex, which is a proprietary technology that protects against environmental toxins. It also includes peptides, grape extract, and beet extract that minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Night Cream: I like the feeling of a rich, deep moisturizing cream when I go to sleep. The REDEFINE Overnight Restorative Cream penetrates deeply to visibly improve fine lines and wrinkles. It also includes Vitamin B3, which evens skin tone and an exclusive peptide technology that sculpts and lifts the appearance of wrinkles. Lastly, it combines Retinol, Bakuchiol, and Glycolic Acid for smoother, youthful looking skin.
- Multi-Function Eye Cream: The eye cream is one of my favorite products out of the regimen because it has Vitamin C and antioxidants that help with the appearance of puffiness, firmness, and fine lines. The consistency of the cream is soft, delicate, and smooth and feels ultra-hydrating on the sensitive eye area.
I used to use one moisturizer for day and night, but I realized that I was either neglecting the rich, nourishing moisturizer that I need at night or the UV protective aspects of the daytime moisturizer. I absolutely love that I have a daytime moisturizer to nourish my skin while protecting it from harmful UV rays while my nighttime moisturizer nourishes deeply and keeps my skin hydrated all night long. While I tried multiple options for the REDEFINE regimen, I liked the creams the best because they made my skin feel moist, supple, and hydrated for hours on end. If you like moisturizers and products to feel lighter on your skin, you have the option of choosing the lotions instead of the creams. Remember, Rodan + Fields is completely customizable, so the mixture of ingredients and steps is completely up to you!
I have a mix between combination and sensitive skin and the REDEFINE regimen was gentle enough for my sensitive skin, but effective enough to nourish deeply for noticeable results. The Retinol, peptides and antioxidants soak deeply into the skin while the bakuchiol ingredient is delicate for sensitive skin.
Skincare can be confusing! There are hundreds of products promising the world, but few that actually deliver. Plus, all of our skin is unique, beautiful, and different, which is why the customizable system is perfect for everyone. Prior to trying Rodan + Fields REDEFINE, I didn’t know if I needed serums or lotions or eye creams or all of the above! The Rodan + Fields REDEFINE system hit the easy button on my skincare routine with four easy to use products.
The Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Regimen is easy to take with me while I travel. With the easy to follow three step program, I can both address my skin concerns and protect my skin no matter where I am in the world.
Now ladies, it’s important to remember that any healthy, non-invasive regimen will take time to see results. Be very weary of products offering instant results. All good things come to those who wait, practice, and apply day-after-day. It takes around four to eight weeks to see results, which is why Rodan + Fields offers a 60-day money back guarantee on all of their products. I’m a big fan of products that offer such a valuable bottom of the bottle guarantee. With 60 days of a clinically demonstrated regimen and a money back guarantee, you truly have nothing to lose except your wrinkles!
