While I had never tried any Rodan and Fields skincare products previously, I was familiar with the brand.
I’ve heard amazing things about the products from other bloggers, and I’ve seen a lot of Rodan and Fields redefine regimen reviews and giveaways on different blogs that I follow over the last several years.
I’m thrilled to have finally had the opportunity to put some of their products to the test and see how amazing they actually are!
Four Steps to using Daily Cleansing Mask
Step 1: REDEFINE Daily Cleansing Mask
I’ll keep it real – I was initially so confused by the lack of a traditional cleanser in this regimen.
Like, where’s the face wash?!
Also the idea of a daily mask was revolutionary. Most masks are meant to be used only a couple times a week – especially cleansing masks.
But this mask is different. The REDEFINE Cleansing Mask is thin and light, dries quickly, and actually does cleanse the skin.
The only thing I’ll say is you really do need to remove your makeup prior to using this mask.
If you try to use this mask as a makeup remover, you won’t get the benefits of the ingredients soaking into your skin.
On the science side of things, this mask is kaolin clay-based and contains finely granulated exfoliators that gently smooth the skin without disrupting the skin’s delicate moisture barrier.
Step 2: REDEFINE Pore Minimizing Toner
The second step is a toner. I love that this toner is alcohol free. I hate when toners give me that tight feeling after use. This toner is gentle and smells amazing (sort of spa like).
The point of this toner is to exfoliate and tighten pores. Poly-hydroxy acids exfoliate pore-clogging dead skin cells while oligosaccharides help reduce the appearance of pores.
Step 3: Applying Serum on your Skin!
Serums are the greatest invention ever. They do make a difference, from extra moisture to wrinkle prevention.
I’ve been using R+F serums. I’ve been applying the Active Hydration Serum and the REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum alternatively.
The Hydration Serum is really moisturizing; but, because it delivers such a punch, it can sometimes leave your skin feeling a little sticky, so I recommend applying only half a syringe each night. Because my skin type is prone to dryness, I apply this serum 3-4 times a week.
On days that I don’t use the Hydration Serum, I use the Intensive Renewing Serum to prevent wrinkles.
This serum contains Retinal-MD™ Technology, a substance that is 20 times stronger than Retinol, making it effective for anti-aging.
Step 4: REDEFINE AM and PM Creams
The REDEFINE regimen comes with two creams, one for AM and one for PM.
I’ve been terrible at using my AM cream on a regular basis, but I’ve been fantastic about using my night cream.
I love the smell of both of them.
They’re also the perfect thickness.
The AM cream is lighter throughout the day, while the PM cream is heavier for more hydration at night.
The AM cream also has an SPF ingredient, which is essential for anti-aging! Some of my favorite constituents in the night cream include hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and antioxidants.
Our Experience Of Using Daily Cleansing Mask
Begin with the cleansing mask. It’s an exfoliating kaolin clay-based mask that you gently massage into dry skin with moist fingers, then leave on for two minutes or so until it dries before rinsing off.
I was expecting to dislike the whole mask/waiting two minutes thing that had to be done twice a day, but I actually enjoyed it.
It was like two minutes of mini-spa in the morning and right before bedtime, which was extremely pleasant.
I could simply apply the clay mask and brush my teeth, and by the time I was finished, it was ready to rinse off, so it didn’t feel time-consuming or like an extra step, I didn’t want to complete.
The mask left my face feeling incredibly smooth and not tight (which is an issue I frequently have with cleansers because my skin can dry up rather fast).
After a few days, I discovered that using an exfoliant twice a day was a touch too harsh for my skin.
Don’t get me wrong: the exfoliating beads in the mask are gentle, however, I have sensitive skin and only exfoliate once or twice a week.
Finally, depending on whether it was day or night, I’d follow the cleansing mask and toner with the Triple Defense Treatment (for day) or the Overnight Restorative Cream (for night).
The Triple Defense Treatment was particularly appealing to me. I’d apply this first thing in the morning to allow it to absorb before wearing my makeup.
It feels light on the skin yet is really moisturizing.
While I appreciate products that serve a dual purpose by incorporating SPF, my skin frequently responds negatively to them.
I’m not sure what it is, but my face is extremely sensitive to something in some SPF products, causing my skin to sting.
This product did NOT do that, and for that I am grateful!
The Overnight Restorative Cream was highly satisfying. It’s a little heavier than its daytime version, which I prefer in a night cream, and it has a blend of hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and antioxidants to prevent moisture loss and replenish nutrients.
After applying this, I awoke with soft, smooth skin.
The REDEFINE Daily Clay Cleanser Includes
Kaolin is a form of clay that gently soothes and purifies the skin’s surface for a more even appearance of skin tone and texture, as well as helping to decrease the appearance of lines and deep wrinkles.
Additionally, natural amino acids (Ectoin) and sugar derivatives (Glyceryl Glucoside) assist decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles while increasing visual firmness.
Why You Need This
REDEFINE Daily Clay Cleanser, one of two gently exfoliating cleanser options in this customized Regimen, can be used as a mask by keeping it on for 2 minutes before removing.
