Rodan+Fields Mini Facial. aka: Little Box of Magic

For months now, I’ve seen a lot of mentions in social media about a company named Rodan+Fields. I honestly never paid much attention because my Facebook feed is FLOODED with all sorts of products that my friends are selling- candles, cooking supplies, makeup, handbags… the list seems endless. Well, one of my college friends contacted me recently about her new role as a Rodan+Fields consultant and asked if I’d be interested in trying out a product and hosting a giveaway for my readers. Since I’ve had zero experience with the company or its products so far, I thought it was a good chance to check it out with no prior opinions.

You guys. Inside this box is a magical, amazing product.

I’m a huge sucker for cute packaging.

She sent me a mini facial to try. It comes with a packet of Micro-Dermabrasion Paste and tiny capsules of Night Renewing Serum. The instructions are simple and it was easy for me to incorporate using it into my nightly bedtime routine (which usually involves me hurriedly swiping at my face with a wet washcloth while the girls are getting their pajamas on and fighting over who gets to use which step stool in the bathroom. YAY, ME TIME!) I rubbed the paste on my dry face for a minute or so, then rinsed with a washcloth. It was gritty but not painful or too scratchy, very invigorating actually! And it didn’t have an overpowering smell, just very light and citrus-y. Once my face was dry, I opened a serum capsule and applied that to my entire face. My skin felt SO SMOOTH as I did this. I was amazed! It really felt like all the layers of yucky skin cells were gone and what was left was smooth, healthy skin. I couldn’t stop touching it. heh.

I have enough to do at least one more mini-facial, and I’ve been saving it for a night when I can lock myself in the bathroom and pamper myself a bit (even though it only takes a few minutes, I can at least PRETEND I’m at a fancy spa, right?) I’m very much looking forward to it.

And I’m so excited about sharing some gifts with all of you! My friend has generously offered to let me giveaway THREE mini-facial sets, plus a lip microdermabrasion stick. So that’s four prizes! For you! There are several ways to enter:

1. Leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite thing about fall. (Completely unrelated to anything in this post, but hey, we’ve got some major cool and sunny fall weather over here, so it’s on my mind. I LOVE FALL.)

    I think my most favorite thing about fall is no longer being sweaty. I hate that.

    Well, I am originally from Brazil, and just moved to the US last year. In Brazil, we don’t see the seasons changing, our seasons are sunny and rainy lol So, of course, I love fall! My favorite part is watch all the leaves changing color. I love the explosion of oranges, golds, browns and reds. Everything looks so cozy! It is my favorite time of the year!

    My favorite thing about fall is… oh man, so hard to pick. All the colors, I guess. Not just the foliage but the apples and pumpkins and the golden light in the evenings. BEST time of the year. :)

    Fall is my total favorite… I love being able to bake again, and there is nothing better than snuggling up on the couch with a blanket & some wine. Unless there is a campfire, in which case I’d pick that. :) yay fall!

    My favorite thing about fall is the food. I love cooking and baking with all the comforting fall favors. I love sitting down with my family on a cool evening to enjoy a meal I’ve spent the day preparing.

    My favorite thing is being warm when it’s cold out. K mentioned on twitter the other day – riding in the car with the windows down and the seat warmers on. And then similar things – sitting next to a campfire. Being snuggled into a warm blanket on the couch. Waking up in a warm bed when the air has that chilly bite to it. Good stuff.

    I love that the temps can be so drastically different in fall. There is nothing better than sleeping in the cool temps with a window open, but under covers, and then having mid-day be perfect sun-sitting weather! It makes choosing clothes difficult, but it is oh so enjoyable :)
