What is Rodan + Fields?
Rodan + Fields is a skincare company developed by two leading dermatologists, Dr. Rodan & Dr. Fields. You may be familiar with their names because they are the creators of Proactive - a tiny skincare line that you may or may not have heard only a thousand different celebrities endorse ;) It's a skincare system based on a regimen, but the regimen all depends on what skincare needs you have!
The great thing about R+F is that it actually works! I know, I sound like a billboard, but I'm okay with that as long as what I'm saying is actually true. And it completely is. And, if R+F - either the product or the business - aren't for you, there's a 60-day money back guarantee! Who offers that in 2015?! Successful products do ;) Okay, I'll stop sounding like a billboard now.
Just a little background about why I chose Rodan + Fields:
Living in New York City is not cheap. There is a saying that everyday a NYC resident leaves her apartment, and at least $25 is deducted from her account. I wish I was joking! I’ve been looking for a source of extra income for awhile that would allow me to be flexible, creative and fund some of those weekend NYC adventures.
I’ve been working in the beauty industry for the past three years, specifically in skincare for the past two years. I’ve always had pretty smooth and normal skin, though it tends to be oily. I’m fortunate that my skin was never very acne prone, but I’ve always had a small regimen that’s worked well for me to keep that small ance down.
What I’ve learned from working in the beauty industry is that you’re never too young to start building your skincare regimen. I remembered my first boss in NYC asked me what moisturizer I used, and I replied “Uh, a moisturizer? Do people actually use those?” That was the first time I ever thought about having a more enhanced skincare routine than just my morning face wipes. Now, my favorite nighttime routine is taking care of my skin. Whether that’s a mask, cream, serum or a little exfoliation. It’s so nice to pamper myself, wipe the grime of the city off my face, and decompress from a busy, hectic day right before bed.
One of my friends from college happened to be a Rodan + Fields consultant, and just an awesome and honest person all around. I followed her progress and success with R&F for about 6 months before I reached out about the products. We had many conversations about my increased dedication to maintaining a healthy, clean complexion, and overall goal of building additional income for myself. Like many others, I was completely on the fence about becoming a R&F consultant for A. Long. Time! I’m not sure how Mallory had the patience for me, but I’m so happy she did!
Mallory was kind enough to send me a sample of the Micro-Dermabrasion Paste and after one use, I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. I remember telling my boyfriend, “babe, my skin literally is so soft and smooth!”. I couldn’t stop touching it! I know that sounds cliche, and you might be rolling your eyes at me, but that’s literally what happened! After that, I knew it was time to get the ball rolling on becoming an official Rodan + Fields Consultant. Even if the business side doesn't work out, I'm thrilled to be representing a brand that I actually love and use (and the discounts aren't too bad either ;) ).
