My Current Skincare Routine

I am a self-proclaimed skincare and makeup lover. I love to experiment with new products, always trying to find the perfect skincare routine. I was introduced to Rodan+Fields by a friend in December and I was pretty blown away by the products. I knew I wanted to order the Reverse line to take care of my sun damage and dull looking skin. I liked the products I was currently using, but when I really thought about it I realized that they were only maintaining my current skin issues and not actually changing my skin. I can happily say that my new routine is changing my skin for the better!

I use the Reverse regimen because I have sun damage and some hyperpigmentation, which is basically uneven skin tone. I rarely leave the house without makeup. Now, don't get me wrong, I LOVE makeup but sometimes you just want to be able to wakeup and go, without foundation. I'm not to the point where I don't wear makeup everyday but I have ventured out lately with only mascara and a little blush. :) This is big for me lol!

Deep Exfoliating Wash

The first step in my routine is the cleanser. I used the Purity cleanser for years and I always loved how it made my skin feel. I also used an exfoliating wash an alternate days to help shed some dead skin, so I knew the importance of this kind of product. I LOVE the way my face feels after I use the R+F exfoliating wash because my skin feels so soft. Plus it smells amazing, which is always a bonus. When I used my Purity wash a few weeks ago because I left my R+F cleanser on the counter I was amazed with how greasy my face felt. I never realized that it left me so oily. It just solidified my satisfaction with my current routine!

Intensive Brightening Toner

I never really used a toner in the past because they always seemed to strip my skin, which made me over-produce oil. So when I started using the Reverse regimen I wasn't sure if I would like this step. Now that I fully understand the importance of a toner it's become a regular part of my routine. The toner sets up your face for the treatment/ serum you will be applying. This particular toner has kojic acid, antioxidants, and natural ingredients like licorice to help brighten your skin. Who knew that I would love these things so much??

Dual Brightening Treatment

My third step is to use a pea-size amount of the dual brightening treatment, this is the vitamin C complex and retinol. They are in two separate bottles so you get the most benefits from each without them losing their potency. These two ingredients have worked some serious magic on my uneven skin tone and those pesky sun spots. One day I will show my before pictures on here and you'll see what I mean :)

Unblemish- Oil Control Lotion

I have VERY oily skin, especially in this San Diego humidity. The Reverse regimen has an SPF but I found that it was too moisturizing for m,e so I switched to the Unblemish Oil-Control Lotion. I love it! My skin feels very comfortable but I don't feel as oily as I normally do. Don't get me wrong, I still have oil but it's not crazy like it normally is in the spring/ summer. Let's hope it stays this way when July rolls around! Also, this lotion has SPF in it... this is a must for the day time!

Eye Cream

Everyone needs a good eye cream with anti-aging properties. It helps to de-puff my tired eyes, lessen the appearance of dark under-eye circles, and works to diminish my crow's feet, while also preventing new lines. It's very moisturizing, which is good because even though I have oily skin, I have very dry under eyes. I use it under my makeup in the morning and then as my last step in my routine at night.

Amp MD roller

Have you heard of micro-needling?? If not, you need to get on this bandwagon! It's pretty awesome and only takes one minute. So basically this little tool is a micro-exfoliator that contains tiny acupuncture needles. The needles roll over the surface of your skin, helping to improve skin texture, minimize pores, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. You can barely feel it while you're using the tool but it does make a big difference. I've seen it work wonders on acne scars too. I have some on my cheeks from my teenage years, so I can't wait to see my continued results.

If you've read my blog in the last couple months you know that I joined the Rodan+ Fields company in January, as an independent consultant. This doesn't change my honest opinion of the products because I couldn't get behind something that I didn't believe in or that didn't work. So for any of the nay-sayers, just know that I am truly a product of the products and I'm loving what the regimen is doing for me. Plus, I get to work with the sweetest, most encouraging team. I'm so fortunate that I found R+F. If you have any questions email me at: and I would love to chat with you.
