Product Review: Rodan And Fields ANTI-AGE, The RESULTS!

 

I know, I know, it’s been a long time coming what with the holidays and all, but here it is, my final review of Rodan+Fields ANTI-AGE system. You’ll recall a friend sent me samples from their new ANTI-AGE line and asked me to give them a try. So I followed the prescribed regimen for a month and here’s what I came up with.

*THE LOOK OF MY SKIN: To be honest, I didn’t notice that much of a difference. As I said at the outset, I’ve been pretty blessed with decent skin and years of being under the care of a dermatologist gave me a solid place from which to start  (even if I didn’t always take care of it the way I should have). Even though the lighting is different you can see the pores and general look remained about the same.

*THE FEEL OF MY SKIN:  I have to give Rodan+Fields props on this because I did notice my skin felt much softer and  silkier even, than it had in a long time. It has a tendency to get dry, especially this time of year. I liked that after cleansing, it didn’t have that tight, pulled feeling.

*STAND OUT PRODUCTS: I loved the Triple Defense SPF 30 (you know I’m a big believer in protection from the sun) but one of the star players, in my book anyway, was the ANTI-AGE Eye Cloths. Right up Good Enough Mother’s ally, they take off make up and add a little something to ward off the signs of aging. Not saying I’m lazy but can it get any easier than that?

*WOULD I RECOMMEND ANTI-AGE? Yes, with one very important caveat, if you have the money to spend. I love the product. I love the line. I love the fact that two women are providing opportunity for other women to make money. BUT, and this is the only but, as I said at the outset it is not cheap. It’s 193.00 for a 60-day supply or roughly 1200.00 a year. Granted it is cheaper than plastic surgery (and there are those who say this is just as good) I think that’s tough for some families on a budget, especially in the current economy and even more so for someone who works for herself.

So that’s my review. What about you, have you ever used Rodan+Fields products, specifically the ANTI-AGE line? What did you think? Would you spend that kind of money on skincare product? Lemme hear ya!

    Thank you for the “Glowing” revue…If a Customer becomes a PC (Perferred Customer) products are shipped free and there is a 10% discount on the retail price you quoted. The creams last longer than 60 days and so the 1200.00 price tag might be exaggerated! PC’s are encouraged to Replenish their Regimens with what they need, they are not required to order complete Regimens every 60 days!

    @Terri: I gather from your quotes, you’re not thrilled with my review, even though cost was the ONLY remotely critical thing I said. To your objection, let’s presume a savings of 120.00 a year, the point is it’s a tough economy and that’s a bit steep to pay for skincare. But Terri, that is MY OPINION; I’m sure there are others who think differently. I can’t speak for them. But I’ll tell you what I will do; I’ll make sure to pass your comment along to the folks at R and F headquarters as I’m sure they’d like to see who is carrying the banner for them. Hopefully, for their sake and the sake of good business, the majority of them are are more like my friend who was most appreciative of the review. Thanks for your input.

    Thank you so much for your review. My daughter, 14, has used r & f for two years now. The UMBLEMISHED line. Did great on her skin and continues to. I, on the other hand had not bought it for myself because I was spending the money on her regimen. I researched it and became a consultant to be able to afford a regimen for her and myself….NOW, I have used the REVERSE & ANTI-AGE regimens and LOVE WHAT IT HAS DONE TO MY SKIN! Amazing changes for me. I changed my skin and I am changing my paycheck. I agree with you the ANTI-AGE cloths are one of my favorite things. Again, thank you for taking the time to share your review! Love it when people don’t really expect a change and then end up loving the feel and/or look of their skin. Sometimes we don’t realize we dont realize we have issues that we would like to change until we try this and feel what our skin can feel like! Have a great day!

    @Amber: Thanks for weighing in. Like I said, I actually am a fan of the product and of ALL the things I said about it (most all of them good), one of the R and F reps teased out the only semi-critical thing to grab onto. That’s a shame because a good product can be buoyed or derailed by the people and I’m pretty certain her attitude is what people will remember in my review. That’s too bad.
    Thanks again and best to you and your business.

    Hi Rene,
    Thanks so much for taking the time to give us your thoughts on Rodan+Fields Dermatologists! I am a consultant with the company BECAUSE I personally love the products. I have used, namely, the REVERSE which brightened and evened out my skin tone and then moved on to the Anti-Age Regimen and the Amp MD roller with the Retinol serum. BTW, did you get the chance to try the Amp MD roller with the serum? Probably because I am older than you, I could see a noticeable difference in my skin. My crow’s feet are a thing of the past without Botox. I love the Eye Cloths too and also the Eye Cream. Can’t forget the Lip Serum as I love what it is doing for these older lips.
    Also, I love the business, the bonuses, the trips and most of all the great new friends I have made in this company. Thanks again for giving us your take !

    Thanks Suzanne: Again, I really like the products; it’s very clear they are good quality. And as I mentioned I am thrilled that the business is giving women an opportunity to have careers that provide for their families. My ONLY point was about the price, given the tough economic times we are in. At any rate, thanks and best to you.

    Hi Rene: It’s always nice to see a fair and balanced review…regardless of the company or product. I, too, am a Rodan+Fields consultant. Prior to representing R+F, I battled acne for quite some time. I’ve never used Proactiv, however, when I heard the same doctors were at it again with new products, I had to get involved. Especially once I saw how my skin healed. For me, the cost of our products was very comparable to what I was paying for prescriptions and doctors visits, yet MUCH more effective…so ultimately the price panned out on my end…and now it pays for itself in a number of ways. :) Thanks for your honest review of everything. You’re certainly blessed to not have problem skin! Wishing you all the best in the new year! I look forward to visiting your blog again in the future and hope your R+F friend is loving our company as much as I am. Warmly, Krista

    Hi Rene!
    I too am an R + F consultant. I became a consultant after using the Anti-Age Regime four months. One of the greatest changes I have experienced is the lifting, tightening of neck and jawline (Amp Md. Maximum Delivery System) as well as the improvement of texture and brightening, tone evening (Reverse Regime). The other big plus – our Dermatological hotline. Our dermatological nurses are there for any questions or concerns that may arise. I spent a lot of money in many drugstores over the years with half empty jars and no results. The last thing I am going to address is the 60 day money back promise, if the products don’t work for you, your money is returned, no questions asked.

    Thank you Rene for your review! I hope you will explore the other Regimes in the future!

    I am also a Rodan + Fields Consultant and I love the Anti-age Line. This multi-med regimen has diminished my fine lines and wrinkles. My face is more radiant and I feel like I look years younger than my age of 41. A fun little tip..if you still have any of your eye cloths left.. put them in the fridge. They are a great pick me up in the morning for tired, puffy eyes.

    Thanks Julie: I agree. My complaint was never about the product, only the price and that was a very small part of the critique. Thanks again

    Hi Rene,
    I enjoyed reading your post about Rodan+Fields products. I have been using the ANTI-AGE skin care regimen for over a year. [And I should tell you up front that I am an Independent Consultant with the company, and really enjoy all aspects of it.] However, I wanted to address your comments about the product pricing: Yes, I agree, the products are not inexpensive. In the current economic climate when so many are struggling to stay afloat, I do hear what you are saying. I can understand priorities and choices that must be made – “do I want to get rid of the ugly pores on my nose, or do I want to feed my family this week?”

    Like other people I know, before I heard about the Rodan+Fields products, I purchased my skin care products at the drugstore. But I never saw any visible improvement or desirable results from those less expensive products, because the percentage of anti-aging ingredients in those brands is minimal. What you receive with Rodan+Fields skin care is true value for your investment in your skin. I never knew that my skin could look as good as it does now. Those things called “peptides” are expensive ingredients – and Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields incorporate a high percentage of those peptides in their products. The retail pricing reflects the quality of the ingredients used, and the percentage of those ingredients used. It would be very interesting to find out exactly what percentage of anti-aging ingredients are actually in, for example, a drugstore brand such as Olay Regenerist, and compare it to the percentage used in Rodan+Fields’ ANTI-AGE line of products….. hint: a good idea for a future article? Thanks for producing such an informative web site!

    P.S.: Note about “Preferred Customer” requirements (the auto-ship loyalty program): These customers are asked only to purchase $80 worth of product once every two months. Per year, the total would be $480.00, plus any applicable sales tax and a $2.50 handling fee. The shipping is free.

  13. Rene Syler

    May 3, 2012 at 8:22 pm

    Thanks Robyn:
    I appreciate you taking the time to explain the preferred customer status and I guess it makes sense to spend a little more products that work, instead of throwing money after those that don’t. Thanks for your candor!

    Thank you for your review, I am just now getting into the biz as my husband’s cousin is a consultant and she is very excited about the biz (and it was my business minded husband who signed me up!) and I have always wanted to make a run for a residual income kind of gig, but just never could get that excited about talking about weight loss products etc etc. I am OBSESSED with wrinkles though, and am constantly looking for the newest thing (without surgery or botox) that will have people marvel at how young I look for 47 years… so vain I know. I will definitely be following your blog as I am a working mom (my other company does mold remediation! so not glamorous!) and have had to relax my standards and the guilt they create for years now so I can work and live and love my kids and not lose my mind in the balance! Thanks again for your website and the really helpful review of the products!

    Rene, I too love the Anti-Age product line.In fact all the lines! I am a product junkie! I tried products from high end departmant store , dermatologist suggested products, drug store, Retin A, and Botox. The results I have received from R+F products are amazing. No other product did what R+F did for my skin.The texture is softer, pore size smaller, and wrinkles and sun-damaging brown spots are disappearing. I became a consultant because the products worked and gave me the results I had been searching to get from the hundreds of products I have tried! I am a consultant and many people call me because of my fabulous results. I do not think the products are expensive compared to the products I have purchased in the past. Thanks for your endorsement!

    Thank You so much for the nice review of the amazing Anti Age Regimen from Rodan and Fields!! I started using the regimen a year ago and saw immediate changes in my 62 year old skin…of which I had pretty much abused with suntanning a lot and never really using any consistent skin care products! I have seen my crow’s feet diminish as well as other fine lines and wrinkles on my forehead, and around my mouth. I am also using the eye cream around my mouth also and it is helping with the lines there as well. I tried Botox, but did not see any real benefits and for the cost, I would totally choose the regimen over that!!
    I added the Reverse regimen in the mornings about 9 months ago and it has also helped with smoothing out the age sunspots and getting my skin to a more consistent and even color. The cost is a factor, but when you see the results, it is all worth it…and the products last a good long time.
    I am a consultant looking for customers and biz partners so if anyone would like to get the best skin of their life or are looking for a fun part time biz with full time compensation possible by sharing the good news about this amazing ground floor opportunity, please contact me! My website is http://www.antiagingplus.co…..thanks so much!!

    I don’t agree with the cost. I ordered the Anti-age kit. After one month, I barely put a dent in the Triple Defense SPF 30 and the Overnight Restorative Cream. I believe I may get at least 4 months out of these 60 day supply. So you would not spend $1,200 per year. I also believe that in order to have great skin, you need a great product(s). I can cut out my coffee, lunch once a week, etc. to be able to have a great skin care regimen.

    @Lynn: I think that’s great you’re able to stretch the product. But I wrote my review based on the way they said the product was to be used, which was as a 60-day supply. If you can make it last 120 days, that’s great but that is not what the directions say. And in the interest of full disclosure, I do wish the R and F reps would identify themselves as such when making comments about the product. Never the less, I thank you for chiming in.

    Hi Rene,
    Not a consultant, and just ordered my first R&F regimin and it was definitely a splurge for me money-wise. I appreciated your review and the recognition that not everyone has the luxury of monetarily valuing their skin care as equal to food on the table, etc… If I may underline your original point that you weren’t questioning the value of the product, just the ability of everyone to be able to afford a product, that when it comes right down to it, isn’t absolutely essential for most of us (as is the case with, you know, food).

    I appreciate also that all the consultants out there are excited about their businesses (go home business opportunities! go women!! hoorah!). I”m obviously a fan of the product, as I ordered it, and would encourage anyone who is able to afford it to buy this product over others as I think it’s the most effective of all I’ve tried.

    Anyway, thanks for taking the time to review the products honestly and respond to any flack with grace and understanding. I think the way you handled some of the more sales pitchy responses has been marvelous and lends credibility to your already fab site.

    Thanks!

    Geez, what a huge group of consultants…Is this the new Avon calling?? In the past week, two people have offered me the Rodan Fields opportunity of a lifetime. I was googling information to better acquiant myself with the product, and your blog came up. Unlike most of the comments above, I was interested in the actual feedback on the product, not a bunch of sales consultants attempting to legitimize the cost. How unfortunate your honest feedback was turned into a sales consultant pep talk! Regardless, thanks for the info!

  22. Rene Syler

    July 12, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    @Marianne: LOL yes, I know. To be honest I wrote that post weeks ago and it is still a big driver on the site. I was particularly disappointed in the woman (an R +F rep) who trashed me for giving my OPINION about the cost. I thought it was a pretty fair review and that was the only critical thing. Apparently that was not good enough for her. Anyway, thanks for your feedback!

  23. marianne

    July 12, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    Rene, I really appreciated your honest OPINION. This seems to be a heavily sponsored brand and honest reviews are at a minimum with this brand. Makeup Alley has a few, but I noticed the most “glowing” of the reviews are consultants. There is nothing wrong with advocating one’s own brand, but a purely unbiased opinion is what many of us are seeking. Thanks again!

  24. Becky

    I tried R&F anti-aging regime about two months ago. After two weeks, a family doctor at the hospital I work at asked what I was doing. I excitedly told about the new products I’d found. She then took me to a mirror and pointed at the harm it was doing. That night I tried calling my consultant and again the next night and the next…I finally heard from her when I cancelled PC Perks and had the products headed back to the company. That was June 18. July 20th after two phone calls they have processed the return with a disclaimer it will take my credit card company up to 10 business days to process. Really?

    I realize many ladies find the products work for them. I sincerely hope most consultants are more engaged in helping – and knowing how to help – their clients than mine seemed to be. The slow customer service direct from the company pushes me over the edge. This company does not have a perfect product no matter how many consultants want to jump on a forum and claim that it is. I hope that we will begin to see balanced comments about this product line and company. It works for many. It is far from perfect!

    Becky,

    I have been thinking about trying the line, but I don’t like using chemicals. I use mostly homemade and natural products for my face. What kind of harm did your doctor say it was doing?

    My friend A’s friend B is R+F consultant, and my friend took me to B’s R+F meeting. I also felt, “Who is going to spend $100/month for skin care?” I have a spectacular looking skin for my age for $30/month and ware no makeup. Still I thought the business side of R+F is pretty interesting. Once I feel that way, my judgment about the product effectiveness is already tainted. The products have to be super good to produce any results on already nice skin I have. A friend A who also has nice skin used the products and told me that she could not tell any differences on her skin, but she liked the products. Most of your reviews are from R+F consultants. They cannot even see what you are saying since they are so into their business. They are in denial.

    The consultant who spoke to me used to sell Shiseido. She used to use Shiseido’s most expensive line, Cle De Peau. She told me the R+F product is better than $1000/jar of Cle De Peau cream she used to use. So I think there are people who spend $100/month on skin care. So even you and I and a majority of general population think “Who would…..?”, there are plenty of people who would….

    Peace, Yoshie

    I thought your review was right on target. As a single mom (for 20+ yrs) I got into R+F hoping to supplement my income. As a user of the Anti-Age, I cannot sing it’s praises enough…and, I don’t always follow the regime like I should!

    The creams are definitely costly for those who are strapped in this economy, but, the creams can last up to 3 months (as you only use a little amount–they spread well). I’ve had my second mask/cleanser for over 6 months (using 1x @ day).

    The eye cloth price can be further reduced by cutting them into 1/2′s or 1/4′s. There is enough “Juice” in those cloths to stretch that cost over 4 months.

    While PC’s do get a 10% discount, as a consultant, the price is further cut.

    This is wonderful stuff!!!
    I too love the fact that my face no longer feels tight and pulled after cleansing. My crows feet are greatly diminished and my skin has improved so much, I look a lot younger than my 50 years.

    http://www.facebook.com/cheryl.m.thompson1 You can view pictures of my “skinny” days without using R+F and my heavier pictures where I am using R+F. Many people have told me my skin looks amazing.

    Again, I think you did a good job on the review. Thanks for the Kudos on R+F! And, I’m sorry a rep gave you such a fit over the small amount of criticism you gave. She shouldn’t have done that.

  28. Cheryl

    July 31, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    Oh, I guess I should have read all the comments prior to posting mine! LOL…sorry, don’t mean to sound like an ad for R+F…didn’t realize all the consultants were piling on their two cents worth…

    Again, I apologize for any bad representations made by any consultants. I agree, the product is marketed on a 60 day regime and anyone following that regime would purchase the product every 60 days… (although that person would have to use a whole lot of the face mask in order to use it up in 60 days).

    I would suggest, if anyone is interested in the products to start with the eye cloths–they are the cheapest, cut them in half and use them not only to take the make up off your eyes, but on your face as a cleanser (the peptides in the cloth have the same effect as using the moisturizer…I’ve done that too! I’ve also used the leftover “juice” to do my forearms, toes, heels, ankles… LOL)

    And, that’s probably why I’m not one of the top sellers…I honestly tell people how to save and still get good skin.

    Loved your review! I am NOT a consultant. I was just invited to a party and was doing some online research when I came across your review. I appreciate your comment on how costly the product was. To me, it doesn’t matter how wonderful the product is if I can’t afford it.

    August 18, 2012 at 1:19 am

    Thank you Rene for an unbiased review! My friend sells R & F and has been encouraging me to become part of her team. I’ve tried the Reverse, Anti-age, and some of the Soothe products. As a PC Perks member I’ve been steadily purchasing products for 8 months, resulting in alot of hype, alot of expense, and minimal results. I personally cannot consider selling these products because I don’t believe the results justify the expense. Telling anyone these products are worth the cost, would require me to lie. This company is more about the “business” than it is about skin care or customer care.

  31. Susie

    August 18, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    I agree with Shelly. I like these products, but for me, they are not worth the expensive price. I also have friends who sell these products and it is as if they are in some cult. Now that I am trying to get out of the “automatic shipment” deal, they are all angry with me because I’m trying to leave the club! Supposedly you can cancel your regular shipment by going to the website and logging in, but you are forced to order at least $80 worth of product. So I end up having to contact my sales person to cancel the shipment, and she has told my friends that I am “straying” from the path!!

    YIKES! I am a new rep :/ Now I am scared :( No really. I thought the first rep was rude. She is the first rude comment that I have read by anyone in the company. I bet R & F would be interested in that :/ I thought your review was fair and informative. Good Job!

    Thank you Rene for your honest review. I have been googeling Rodan and Fields trying to find honest reviews about the products and the business opportunity. Unfortunately, every review I come across is written by a consultant or is made to look like it was written by an unbiased 3rd party; but one can clearly tell it’s written by a consultant with the repetitive use of certain “buzz words” or catch phrases. It almost seems like the consultants have been given a script for selling. Yours is the first actual honest review I have come across, it’s just too bad the feed back & comments flooded from consultants heavily advertising the product. I would love to get some more real and honest feedback about these products. So many consultants using the same regurgitated diatribe makes me weary to try the products. And at such high prices I can’t afford to take any chances.

  34. Susie

    October 15, 2012 at 3:25 pm

    Thanks for your review. I just ordered the night serum and looking forward to using them. The cost is about the same as over the counter products but the shipping costs appear to be high and I live about 15 miles away from their headquarters. I will post back after my 60 day regimen with my opinion and results. I am not a consultant and do not intend to be one either so my opinion will also be non-biased.

  35. Jane

    October 23, 2012 at 2:53 pm

    Also came here after googling ….it’s next to impossible to get unbiased reviews of this product, I suspect R&F is very good at monitoring social media. These “consultants” are everywhere. Also, when they start asking about “business partners” it sounds to me like it’s network marketing (in the 80s we called that a good ol’ pyramid scheme). I can’t believe one of these ladies actually said “ground floor opportunity”.

    You can’t beat Retin-A (Rx), a high quality vitamin C serum and broad spectrum sunscreen. Any reputable derm will tell you that.

    Hi Rene,

    Thank you for your review. I enjoyed reading it. I”m not a consultant, but have been approached by several in my area, which has lead me to your unbiased review. I’m curious, would you be interested in writing about the chemicals in the product? There’s quite a list of chemicals that look like they may not be good for you in the long run. Then, again, what is these days?

    Since I’m a data oriented person, I would love to see what you found out about the contents of the products and their safety. I would love to read about natural alternatives as well.

    Thanks!

    Hello to All
    I am considering becoming a consultant. I have gotten involved in other multi level marketing offers….Have been googling R&F that is how I got here. I attended a presentation & loved how my skin felt. Do not have the 395., 695.,995., to spend to really sell the product. I have also heard same words “ground floor opportunity.” Hum? Do not have a problem selling something I believe in, worried “been there done that” feeling. Consultants here do you feel the investment is worth the $$ you have made? Do you feel you have put in a lot of time to make $$ you have made? Look forward to comments.

    Hi Rene,
    @Terri never explained herself. I thought she was making a pun since great skin is also be described commonly as “glowing” and you also mentioned your great skin: What does glowing skin mean? As an R+F Consultant, I’m sure someone will accuse me of being biased for offering an alternative :) I think your review is a lot like your skin, Rene: they are yours and are unique to you. They should both absolutely be respected (in their own ways). For you, they also both happen to be great! So THANK YOU for your review! And congrats on your great skin! For those of use that did not have the benefit of your dermatologist, our great-skin genes are only 20% of the great-skin equation – the other 80% is in our control (Can you say sun damage?). For your readers, if you want skincare that smells great and makes your skin feel great right away and after 30 days, R+F products knock it out of the park, but the true value of the four R+F core regimens would be missed entirely if that is your only measuring stick. Your fine lines and wrinkles, brown/age spots, adult acne/discoloration/scarring, or sensitive skin/rosacea are complex skin concerns that require dermatological solutions to correct them, and, for many of us, it WILL take longer than 30 days without knives, lasers and needles. Sorry. If you use skincare daily and would like a daily-use skincare solution that smells great, feels great AND corrects your complex skin concerns, there is an R+F solution for you to consider. If anyone wants the published clinical results, brochures, ingredients, copy of the 60-day Satisfaction Guarantee, or any other information, contact me and I’d be happy to share it. And likewise on the business opportunity. Our direct sales business model is about word-of-mouth. So if you don’t have a trusted friend in Rodan + Fields yet and here you are online looking for reviews and information, take that as the “buzz” outpacing our Consultant base’s growth (a great problem to have, IMHO – and one that will be corrected as the company grows out of its infancy). If you’re the kind of person that also sees the opportunity in that, raise your hand! Thanks again for the great review, Rene! -Jim

    I am not a consultant, and last year, I bought the Reverse line from an acquaintance who became a consultant at that time. After researching the quality of the R&F products, I decided to try the product to reduce the sunspots on my face. I did not notice a significant change in the reduced appearance of my freckling and sun damage. But my main concern follows: I was signed up for the Perks plan that keeps sending me the same Reverse Line by my rep. Just recently, another friend of mine is a consultant and told me I should not be using the Reverse line long term (my rep never informed me of this) and is only for short term use. If I used it year round and was in the sun a lot, it would cause my face to burn. So clearly if my rep signed me up for this product on the Perks plan to continue using it, the rep was either did not understand the product application herself, or just forget to tell me the proper use. My biggest concern with these products, is that anybody can choose to become a consultant, and at least some of the products require some guidance by the consultant over time. In my situation, it is clear, that once a sale is made and becomes automated through the Perk program, it is easy for a customer to fall through the cracks and not given proper guidance by reps. The newest product, the macro exfoliator is supposed to do what can only be currently done in a doctor’s office or dermatologist. To be honest, I am not so sure I would be comfortable using Do-It-Yourself tools and chemicals on my skin.

    Wow! One review and the swarm comes out…. that alone turns me off the product! Thank you for your unbiased review. My cousin has just started selling this stuff and I wanted to do a little research on it but can hardly find anything that’s not written by them or their consultants – who are mostly annoying, in my opinion.

    I was hoping to see comments, opinions and experiences from “real” people – not a bunch of people trying to sell the stuff. :(

    Can you recommend a product for anti-aging not so expensive? Also looking for foundation with good coverage.
    thanks

    I found this blog when googling the products as well. I too ordered some of the products from a friend selling them. I ordered the cleanser and toner from the anti aging line and the redness treatment, step 2. I too do not love the price.

    Well…I used it for a month so so far and really love how it makes my skin feel. Cleaner than ever and never tight. Just like the other reviewer said.
    My make up goes on nice and smooth as well. I recently wondered if it’s worth the money, so I stopped using it for a few days. Once I tried it again, I was in love all over again, and figured that feeling MAY be worth the price. I am 42 and a skin care and make up fanatic, so I’ve tried it all! I am on the fence about the redness remedy and will try to use it religiously for the remainder of my trial period.

    I am 57 and like many women my age looking for a miracle to the aging process. I have good skin and but I attribute this to caring for my skin daily and avoiding the sun. I have a friend that drank the R & F coolaid and is a consultant, so I purchased Reverse regime. I liked the results, but not the not the monthly charges to my credit card. On a recent visit to my dermatologist I asked if it was necessary for me to spend $100.00 a month for skin care. My doctor said that R & F is a good product but I could have the same results without the expense. Of course my friend dismissed the doctors opinion, but she’s the one that drank the R&F coolaid.

    @Cindy-you mentioned your doctor said “you can have same results without the expense” from what other products? I work with someone that’s a consultant & am interested in trying these products, but the cost seems high?!?! I just got done a few months ago using Arbonne skin care products, really liked them, but again high end prices. Trying to find a balance of great product/price.
    Thank you-
