I have been wanting to try Rodan + Fields Skincare for the longest time. Just in case you’re not familiar with it, Rodan + Fields line of skincare products was developed by Stanford-trained dermatologists, Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields. I am grateful to the blogging group, iFabbo, for making it happen now! I received the Rodan + Fields Redefine Regimen and Acute Care products to try out in exchange for an honest review.
Rodan + Fields Redefine Regimen was created to address the appearance of lines, pores and loss of firmness. There are three other regimens for other skin issues:
- Reverse for brown spots, dullness and discoloration
- Unblemish for acne
- Sooth for sensitive, irritated or red skin.
Redefine was a good choice for me, but check out all four on the Rodan + Fields website.
The Redefine regimen consists of 4 products that come in one terrific kit, and they make up the 3 step routine:
- Daily Cleansing Mask (4.2 fl. oz./125 ml)
- Pore Minimizing Toner (4.2 fl. oz./125 ml)
- Daytime and Nighttime Moisturizers (each 1.0 fl. oz./30 ml):
- AM: Triple Defense Treatment Broad Spectrum SPF 30
- PM: Overnight Restorative Cream
The Daily Mask, a thick white clay (kaolin) cleanser with tiny exfoliating particles, provides daily non-drying cleansing and gentle exfoliation. Even with my sensitive dry skin, I love using it. The cleanser is massaged on and then left to dry for two minutes as a quick mask. I love this product. In fact, its gentle exfoliation works so well that when I tested another brand’s chemical exfoliator to remove dead skin cells that were supposed to come off in little clumps, there was nothing to remove! I’m all set 😉

I typically don’t use a toner, except occasionally I use rosewater for its calming qualities. But I have been following the regimen, and I have been using the Pore Minimizing Toner on a regular basis. It is very gentle, and my skin is fine with it. I don’t have enlarged pores so I can’t see a difference. Another benefit to using a toner is that it makes serums and moisturizers more effective, so I am happy to add it to my routine.

Then I follow up with either the daytime or nighttime moisturizer. I love that the daytime moisturizer has SPF 30. I love the feel of both of these moisturizers. They are the perfect weight for my dry skin, and neither is greasy. They sink right in, and my skin feels very smooth. I really love both of these products!

My skin has been feeling great since I started the Rodan + Fields Redefine Regimen. It is appropriate for all skintypes. Check it out. I definitely think you will like it a lot! And there are a few more products including eye cream, hand cream and expanded kits available as part of the Redefine product lineup.
The Redefine kit is priced at $193 for all 4 products. It can be purchased on the Rodan + Fields website or through their direct sales representatives.
Redefine Acute Care
Acute Care, Skincare for Expression Lines, is also part of the Redefine skincare line. The box I received can be used to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye, i.e. crow’s feet. According to Rodan + Fields, “Acute Care quickly and comfortably smooths targeted lines and wrinkles using Liquid Cone Technology to melt line defying peptides directly into the wrinkles for a younger-looking appearance.”
The box that I received contained 10 separate packets, each containing 2 clear plastic strips impregnated with hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid and sh-Oligopeptide-1 that I believe is Epidermal Growth Factor or EGF, a peptide that accelerates cell proliferation and differentiation. My only complaint about the product is that it is over-packaged. It is clearly necessary to protect the efficacy of the product so that it won’t become ineffective or dry out, but it comes in a plastic case that does not show the recyclable logo, and the plastic casing is placed in a plastic-y envelope to further protect it. I wish that the plastic case was recyclable. Plus it would be great if some form of paper could be used to seal it rather than more plastic. Packaging rant over!
Acute Care is used at night, every third night for a month, in conjunction with the Redefine Regimen. After cleansing and drying the skin around the eyes, a pad is applied to the eye area essentially where crow’s feet are or could be. The pad is easy to apply, and it sticks on quite well. It delivers active ingredients right where they are needed.
Over the past year or so, my crow’s feet have really deepened. Boo! After using all 10 Acute Care treatment pads, there is some improvement. Especially after I remove the pads in the morning, my eye area looks better hydrated and the lines do not appear as deep. Impressive! I’d love to keep going with these.
Acute Care is sold in conjunction with the Redefine 4-product kit for $413.
Have you tried any of the Rodan + Fields regimens yet? I’d love to hear what you think!
