Let’s face it: None of us are getting any younger. As I inch closer and closer to thirty, I’ve begun to realize how important it is to start getting serious about skin care. More importantly, I need to learn about my skin, what I can do to best protect it, and what’s out there to help fight off some of the naturally occurring conditions that come with age, sun exposure, and life in general. That’s why I was so excited when Margaret over at Rodan + Fields (Hi, M!) sent me a mini facial to try. I wanted to share what I thought about the products I recieved and also a very exciting giveaway that Margaret has graciously offered to one of my lucky readers.
The mini facial kit came with samples of three different products:
- Microdermabrasion Paste
- Night Renewing Serum
- Lip Renewing Serum
After washing my face, I used the microdermabrasion paste to exfoliate my skin. An oil-free product, it’s designed to promote cell turnover, even skin tone, and smooth skin texture. Since I have sensitive skin, I was a little nervous about how rough it would be for me (or how red my face would look afterwards) but I was surprised to discover that after I rinsed my face, it felt really good. The night renewing serum, which comes in single dose capsules, contains a blend of peptides and retinol to visibly improve skin texture & firmness and to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. And let me be the first to tell you that it is incredible. I have never, ever (ever) had such soft skin. It was like satin. The lip renewing serum, which also comes in single-dose capsules and contains a blend of peptides and antioxidants, creates the most kissable lips. I really felt as if I’d been to a salon for a facial. The combination of the three is just heavenly. Don’t take my word for it, though, try one for yourself.
If you go online to Margaret’s Rodan + Fields Solution Tool and take the short analysis of your skin, you can try a mini facial set for yourself. I should warn you- Be prepared to be impressed. It’s wonderful. The tool, which only takes about three minutes to complete, prepares a regimen for your skin type and needs and gives you ideas for products you can use in your daily routine to help keep your skin at its best.
