QUICK REVIEW: Straight forward and easy to use, RODAN & FIELDS REDEFINE REGIMEN offers reliable results for most skin types. Many will love the idea of a packaged regimen – and the products are sold separately for those (like me) who would prefer a more tailored routine.
In case you were wondering – yes, this is the same Rodan and Fields that started Proactiv Solutions and promised us hopeful consumers clear skin. 17 years later (the brand launched in 1995) those of us who once battled acne are now faced with a whole other list of concerns. Wrinkles, age spots, sensitivity, sagging…just to name a glorious few.
Let’s start by disclosing – yes, this is a multi-level marketing brand and NO, I am not a consultant. However, while you may not be able to quit your day job, my friend and consultant Jan (who’s consultant page is linked to this review) has been very successful. The program overall seems to encourage positive team building, encourage success, and better yet, the products are actually very good.
I worked the Redefine Regimen into the Reverse Regimen I was using (READ REVIEW) and had grown semi-addicted to the effects of the Reverse Treatment (the tube is almost gone – that NEVER happens). Since wrinkles are not a big concern – I didn’t expect to visually see a dramatic change, but was hoping to find good maintenance/preventative products.
1 REDEFINE DAILY CLEANSING MASK ($41 for 4.2oz.)
A white, creamy, clay based, quick drying (2 minutes) non-foaming fragranced mask/cleanser which utilizes “fine dimethicone microbead” to clear skin of debris and excess oils, minimize pores (it actually does) and smooth skin. I like using this in the AM – love the idea of being able to give myself a quick facial while I’m brushing my teeth! Skin is noticeably smoother and more clear with immediate results. The only downside is you cannot use this around the eyes and it does not remove makeup, so you’ll still need an additional cleanser to finish your PM routine. The scent doesn’t bother me, but I would prefer a more subtle approach here.
MONSTER 2 CENTS: Market this as an AM treatment cleanser and minimize the fragrance.
2 REDEFINE PORE MINIMIZING TONER ($47 for 4.2fl.oz)
This is an alcohol-free toner with a slight fragrance that utilizes polyhydroxy acid (specifically lactobionic acid and Gluconolactone) and oligosaccharides (from lentil seeds) to exfoliate and minimize pores. Overall, a good, basic toner (nothing exciting – but its just toner) that preps skin for nourishing.
(L-R): Daily Cleansing Mask, Triple Defense Treatment SPF 30, Overnight Restorative Cream
3 REDEFINE TRIPLE DEFENSE TREATMENT BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 30 ($80, 1oz.)
As a proclaimed non-fan of moisturizer+sunscreen (I prefer a separate sunscreen) this one had a rich, creamy texture and slight perfumed scent but didn’t irritate my skin. While it can be used by most skin types, oilier skin might want to use the UNBLEMISH OIL CONTROL LOTION BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 20 ($28) and if a higher SPF is preferred, the REVERSE version has an SPF 50.
Overall, it wore well under makeup and didn’t cause me to break out. My skin was a little oilier than usual, but not enough to cause an issue.
3 REDEFINE OVERNIGHT RESTORATIVE CREAM ($73, 1oz)
A hydrating blend of hyaluronic acid, glycerin and antioxidants with a lightweight, but nourishing texture and similar scent to the other products. This can be used in the morning if you prefer as well. I really liked the texture of the night cream and it worked well with the REDEFINE NIGHT RENEWING SERUM – lending to a more perfected complexion in the morning.
Properly hydrated skin looks plumper and more firm – and this did a good job of providing this effect in minimal time.
REDEFINE NIGHT RENEWING SERUM ($89 for 60 capsules)
*Optional, not included with regimen.
These individual blue capsules contain a time-released blend of retinol and peptides in a silicone base, which instantly refines skin’s texture and minimized the potential of irritation. It feels a little heavy going on, but the sensation quickly dissipates.
This is a good gateway product for those who haven’t used a retinol (or retinoid) product before. Those who currently use retinol products or Retin-A will not experience dramatic results.
I love the individual capsules which are great for travel and keeps the product fresh. This is one of the first retinol products that I’ve used that didn’t completely irritate my skin. I wish it didn’t have a silicone base, but it doesn’t cause breakouts and left pores looking smaller after 2 weeks of use. I continue to use this on my neck – its perfect for that area!
There’s no dramatic before and after RODAN + FIELDS REDEFINE REGIMEN pictures since I don’t have issues with fine lines or wrinkles. However, my skin didn’t show any signs of new breakouts, irritation (even with the sunscreen!) or dry areas. With the addition of the REDEFINE NIGHT RENEWING SERUM I can see how this would show more dramatic results on skin with more specific targeted issues.
I would probably buy the cleanser again – it really is like a facial in the morning! My concerns lean more heavily toward the Reverse products (the treatment in particular). However, I would totally recommend this regimen to people who are either new to skin care or want a more streamlined routine.
Rodan + Field regimens are brilliant in their simplicity and offer even high maintenance women quality products, reliable results and reasonable prices.
Even for the cosmetically jaded like me, who have tried loads of anti-aging products – I was impressed with the results. The products could use a little less fragrance and I personally would like more appealing packaging, but all in all its a good investment…so give your friend, sister or co-worker a willing ear if they happen to be a consultant.
