Thank you to Rodan + Fields for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Hi friends! I'm back to update you and talk more in-depth about the Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Regimen that you can now customize to suit your needs. I discussed the new "customizing" option in a previous post that I'll link here. However, I hadn't been able to try the products very much then but now, I can give you my fully formed opinion and which products I prefer in the line.
I've worked with Rodan + Fields a few times and they're a dream to work with, so I'm excited to be doing it again. Also, my sister-in-law absolutely loves their products which is what made me really aware of the brand initially.
First, I'm going to walk you through the customizing options from the website on how you can choose which products you want in your routine/set.
The REDEFINE Regimen is the four products of your choice which is the same for every set in here. You get to choose those four products to build your 3-step skincare routine.
The REDEINE + Lash Boost is the four products of your choice with the added Lash Boost.
REDEFINE AMP It Up Special is the four core products you choose and the AMP MD system.
REDEFINE Power Up Special is the four core products you choose and then the Pore Cleansing MD System.
So, let's discuss the products that I prefer. First, let me say that my skin is pretty normal and doesn't get aggravated too much. So, there's truly no product here that I genuinely don't like.
For the cleanser, I prefer the Daily Foaming Cleanser over the Daily Clay Cleanser because the Daily Clay Cleanser has a little bit of grit to it, and I don't usually need that in a cleanser. It's a very, very gentle scrub though so it wouldn't be an issue for most people I don't think. The Foaming Cleanser instantly goes into a thicker lather rather than a big foam. It doesn't leave your skin feeling tight nor does it strip the skin. It does have AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) in it though as the form of chemical exfoliation, which I really like in cleansers. Both of these are a very nice size coming in at 125ml or 4.2 oz, and it has a light but very pleasant scent. I notice it more with the Clay Cleanser than the Foaming Cleanser. Regardless, both of these leave the skin feeling very smooth and soft. I will leave ingredients for each product at the bottom of the post.
The Pore Refining Toner is next and also comes in at 125 ml or 4.2 oz. It smells lovely and again very light which makes sense when you learn what's inside. This is pretty straightforward in how it helps with natural cell turnover, it's a very gentle exfoliating toner. I do not mean exfoliation in the form of a "scrub." I mean it in the "resurfacing" sense. This works on resurfacing, softening, and brightening the skin. Again, it makes sense due to the ingredients which are: Niacinamide which is like shrink-wrap on the pores, antioxidants to feed the skin (you know I love my antioxidants), and then a medley of fruit acids like Pineapple and Papaya which I just discussed the other day about how they are a natural and gentle acid exfoliation used a lot in toners and masks. It also has Watermelon, Lemon, Grape, and Mango. It’s very refreshing, I tend to like stronger toners in general BUT when using a gentler toner I apply it with a gauze pad instead of cotton pads. I picked that up from a veteran skincare facialist in London. The gauze is just a little more abrasive, so it helps with the resurfacing. However, using this with a cotton pad is just fine.
For day creams, it's was very hard for me to choose between Triple Defense Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 and the Triple Defense Lotion SPF 30. It's still quite cold here in Tennessee and we've also had some very harsh weather, that tends to dry out the skin. So, when I'm feeling like my skin needs a little more help with the moisture barrier, I tend to use the cream. It's a smooth creamy texture that feels amazing and absorbs so well. It was designed for the more normal to dry skin types. However, if I've used other products that morning or if I just need something to be extra lightweight because my skin has changed into "combo" skin type where I'm dealing with more oil, I use the lotion. It was designed with combo to oil skin types in mind. It's quite thin and absorbs in just a matter of seconds. You don't have to use very much but be sure that you're using enough to cover your face because you want that SPF protection that it has. That goes for both products. And yes, it doesn't matter if it's cold and winter, you still need SPF every single day. Both of these use R+F’s Peptide Technology and you know how I preach about peptides needing to be in your skincare routine all the time. I like peptides in your moisturizer because it's one less step that you have to do. Peptides take some time to show visible results because they're working deeper within the skin surface, but they are pretty vital in my opinion, in regard to how they help address the look of aging skin, by keeping the skin plumper-looking. Both of these products are 30 ml or 1 fl oz.
For the night products, I honestly like both and it's truly whatever you're looking for. So, the Overnight Restorative Cream is a little rich but not very heavy and it's loaded with really great oils and shea butter for the skin to nourish it while you sleep. It also has a great blend of peptides that I discussed above as well as Bakuchiol and Glycolic Acid. Bakuchiol is plant-derived and is a very popular ingredient right now because of its "natural retinol type behavior." Glycolic Acid is often used to resurface just like other acids and retinol types. Its resurfacing method is to help the look of fine lines by helping that cellular turnover. This doesn't tingle when I put it on so don't worry about it being too strong, but I can feel it on the skin which doesn't surprise me based on the oils and shea butter inside. The Overnight Reparative Lotion is a favorite because once again it's a lightweight lotion (but not as thin as the daytime lotion) with Niacinamide that delivers hydration but also houses a retinol blend. It's easy to layer if you're like me and have a lot of steps in your skincare routine. Retinol or retinol-type products are truly the keys to helping the look of aging skin. It's definitely what I would recommend if you're looking for something to help your fine lines, yet you don't really need something that's very rich or gives you too much moisture. For myself, I've rotated both, but I find that I like the Overnight Restorative Lotion the most instead of the cream. Both of these are also 30 ml or 1 fl oz.
I'd also like to touch on the REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream. I don't often change up my eye creams. I tend to just use the same one over and over. This is a dandy eye cream. You can use this morning and night and I do notice, especially in the morning, under makeup that my under-eye area doesn't look as "crepe-y" or dry and the lines are usually there are much smoother. My under-eye area is naturally just more sunken in so anything that can make that appear plumped up, I completely enjoy. This is 15 ml or .5 oz.
I often do a lot of steps in my routine, but I must say that these have been a great addition. I've been using them for several months now and when I ran out, I really noticed. Especially in the morning routine. My skin just wasn't as healthy as it had been or as plump. There's far more information than I can give you, on their website and I'd recommend you take a look at it. There's some amazing before and after photos.
I will include ingredient decks for all of these. It does look like there is "fragrance/parfum" listed on them all some of them coming in very low on the ingredient deck though. With ingredient decks, you usually have your highest percentages at the top and then the lower an ingredient is the less there is of that ingredient in your product. So that's something to bear in mind or maybe it's just a fun fact for you.
