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.
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:
