Product Review Rodan and Fields
On my 30th birthday in 1992, I had move to Chicago to begin a year off to write my book, Mafia Hairdresser, but I became bored having been used to talking to hair customers or running a salon full of people. So I decided to take a more social “little job” as a Counter Manager of the Christian Dior cosmetics counter at Lord & Taylor in the Water Tower in the Gold Coast. I loved that job and I grew that counter’s business and was lauded and paid well for doing so. I learned some very good business skills as I finished my book. My “little job” was such a win!
Another win was learning and working with some very good makeup and skin care lines. One line that I became familiar with, at Lore & Taylor, was Rodan and Fields. Like Christian Dior Parfums of Pairs, Rodan and Fields was also another high end skin care line: I liked and sold a lot of the product.
In 2002, Rodan and Fields did something that no other prestige department store line had done: It began to sell though independent business people directly to consumers. One such business lady happened to be one of my newer clients, Maryann Price. She is a Rodan and Fields representative and also manages other associates who sell Rodan and Fields.
This is an update: I now use and love this product from Rodan + Fields. Vitamin D3 Timed Release!
MAXIMUM D3 “You have heard us preach that limiting sun exposure and wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen is the key to maintaining healthy, radiant, youthful-looking skin. However, Vitamin D, which is essential for bone health and overall wellness, is created when the body absorbs the sun’s UV rays. Since we are committed to helping everyone achieve healthy skin and a healthy life, we offer Maximum D3, an oral supplement of the most absorbable form of Vitamin D. As the sun’s damaging rays can exacerbate the symptoms associated with a variety of skin conditions including acne, sensitivity, hyper-pigmentation, and skin aging, Maximum D3 is our recommended supplement to any Rodan + Fields Multi-Med Therapy regimen. Package includes 10 once-weekly doses.” Retail $25.00
Maryann sampled me with the Micro-Dermabrasion Paste, Night Renewing Serum, and the Lip Renewing Serum. I was more than happy to get reacquainted with the line but also told her I probably wouldn’t care for lip Renewing Serum since I was a guy who didn’t wear lipstick; I didn’t care if my lips were smooth or not.
I loved the Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste. I thought it was one of the best exfoliators I have ever used; and I’ve used some very good ones. The reason Rodan and Fields Microdermabrasion Paste is great is that I tried it on a dry face and a damp skin. They call it a “high glide” product and, from what I’ve come to understand, it does not scrape or scratch your face with pieces of peach pits or other harsh skin irritating ingredients. I has vitamin C and E and the “scrub” ingredients are sugar and salt which begin to dissolve immediately when applied: which is a good thing! I highly recommend this product.
The Night Renewing Serum would not normally have made such a big difference on my skin because I do use great products. But to someone who has been having problems with their skin: dryness or “sluggish” I believe this product would wake up your skin. The evening I used this product I had a few glasses of wine with a steak. Those are nights I know that the next morning the rich food and drink will “show up” on my skin. But I had used my serum sample and I woke up to a more glowing skin and my face was clear. Whew! That was a good serum. I highly recommend.
Lastly, I also recommend the Lip Renewing Serum. Yup. I liked it. It does not feel like a peel nor does it feel like a wax or typical smoother. It makes your lips feel plump, hydrated, smooth and removes any tightness associated with “chapness.” As a makeup artist I would recommend this product for lipstick wearers.

Note: I find this link to be a bit tedious as far as how easy it is to order. Rodan + Fields likes you to order and then it will re-ship automatically in 60 day. I don’t like that. You also need to be able to buy over $80 your first time. I don’t like that either. You can change the settings in your account by going to rodanandfields.com and sign into your account, or you can check out by clicking on the American Flag at the top rt of your screen on your PC. I found you can check out that way and not have it auto ship. Tedious! But good products.
Rodan and Fields also has excellent sun protection, body product, skin and bone supplements and more. I do recommend talking directly to Maryann Price so she can make sure you are prescribed the perfect products for your skin care needs. You may click on any of the above products to shop with Maryann.
