The GAME CHANGER For My Skin: My Skincare Routine

Updated: Aug 3, 2018

It seems as though the late 20s or early 30s is when women REALLY start thinking seriously about skincare. You start to notice those fine lines, or your makeup isn't sitting exactly right on your face, or maybe you just don't have the vibrancy your face used to have. What a bummer.

The moment for me?? I went to the doctor and he asked if I was interested in Botox because I "had some areas" that could use it. Then, the very next day, my principal awarded me Teacher of the Month and referred to me as an "old teacher." Now, I know, that may seem silly, but omg I was like, get me on the skincare train NOW.

It seems as though I have tried just about every moisturizer/ skincare line/eye cream out there. I tried serums and washes and creams. I tried it all.

I have some friends who sell Rodan + Fields, and I talked to them about the products, but I didn't really give it a second thought because it was super expensive and, since everything else hadn't worked, I wasn't going to spend money on that.

That moment that I realized I needed good skincare NOW changed things for me and I ordered some R+F immediately.

Holy crap. Game changer.

-Keep in mind, I do NOT sell Rodan + Fields nor am I sponsored by them in any way. I just really have seen a huge difference in my skin since using this products and I wanted to share.

I started using these products in earnest once they came in. I still don't use them as often as recommended, but I still got the results I was looking for. Since I was MOST bothered with my fine lines around my eyes, I went with the Redefine regimen.

The kicker? I'm oily. Like, really really gotta-wash-my-hair-and-face-because-otherwise-ill-be-a-greasy-mess oily. Because of that, we swapped out the AM cream of the Redefine regimen for this Oil Control Lotion from the Unblemish regimen. OILY GIRLS-- YOU NEED THIS. You're welcome! My makeup goes on like a dream and the oil is controlled all day long. Completely necessary.

My routine


- Wash face with Redefine Daily Cleansing Mask

- Tone with Pore Minimizing Toner

- Apply Oil Control

- Go about my make up as normal


- Wash my face with my regular cleanser, NOT the R+F one (you're supposed to, but I just am trying to make my products last-- just being honest!)

- Apply Multifunction Eye Cream under my eyes

- Use PM Overnight Restorative Cream all over my face and neck

I began seeing a difference in my face in less than a week. Everything is smoother, my makeup is gliding on, and my skin just looks healthier. I've been using it daily for almost three months now and am still in love.

I went out of town this past week and didn't bring my skincare products-- BIG MISTAKE-- my skin felt so dull and lackluster without it and the imperfections were really highlighted. No more will I forget this stuff!!!

Now, I'm a bargain shopper through and through, but, now, my skin is something I will happily spend money on.
