I’m in Business!


Those of you who know me outside of this blog may know that I am NOT a natural saleswoman.  I used to hate school fundraisers unless they were something really easy like candy bars because those basically sold themselves.  Otherwise I just wasn’t interested.  That being said, I’ve decided to become a Rodan & Fields saleswoman!  You can check out my website here.  But before you do so, read on to find out WHY I’ve decided to do something that comes so unnaturally to me.sales

Those of you who know me outside of this blog also probably know that I’ve struggled with acne for most of my life, since I was ten years old to be exact.  At various times I’ve tried various & sundry different creams & solutions, both OTC & rx.  I had moderate success with some & no success at all with others.  I even tried doxycycline, an oral antibiotic, for a few months a few years ago, & while I had reasonable success with that it was obviously not a long term solution.r and f

As someone who’s struggled with acne my entire teenage & adult life I wasn’t exactly shocked to find that pregnancy hormones were not kind to my face.  However, when my acne got even worse in the first few months postpartum, I was starting to panic.  Obviously I couldn’t go back on doxycycline while breastfeeding (& even if I “could” have, I wouldn’t have felt comfortable doing that).  I was getting desperate! regimen image

Well, it just so happened that a friend & former coworker of mine joined Rodan & Fields skincare company last January- one year ago today to be exact!  When she told me the success she had with the Unblemish regimen on her postpartum acne, I was naturally very intrigued.  Once I heard about the money-back guarantee, I was sold.  I had to give it a try.  After all, what was there to lose?'I can cure your oily skin or you could sell the drilling rights.'

I’ll be the first to admit I’ve always been terrible about sticking to a good skin care routine.  However, after investing a decent amount of money in the Unblemish regimen, not to mention with how bad my acne had gotten at that point, I had some serious motivation to follow the regimen religiously.  While I missed a few days here & there, overall I stuck to the routine exactly as instructed.  Within weeks, I noticed that my skin was softer & smoother than it had ever been in my whole life.  I also started to notice fewer breakouts.  Within two months, my acne was all but goneWithin six months I was down to using the full regimen only once or twice a week but still maintaining the clearest, most beautiful skin of my life.

My skin actually looked worse than this at times but this is the best picture I could find to show how my acne was before starting R&F’s Unblemish regimen

As the months passed I started using other R&F products as well, namely the Redefine multi-function eye cream & the Amp-MD roller in combination with the Intensive Renewing Serum.  The eye cream has made a huge difference in avoiding dark circles under my eyes (what mom doesn’t have those?), & the Amp roller & renewing serum are working wonders on the stretch marks on my tummy from my pregnancy.  christmas cartoon r and f

Over the past few months I’ve lost count of the number of people who have complimented me on my gorgeous skin.  As someone who struggled with acne for almost 20 years, trust me, those are not compliments I was used to receiving.  I’ve been contemplating joining R&F for months now, largely thanks to these compliments, but what really tipped me over the edge was when we visited my grandmother at Christmas.  Almost the first thing she said to me was “Your skin looks amazing.  What are you doing?”  At that moment, I realized it was time for me to join this phenomenal company because I’ve already become a bit of a spokeswoman for them anyway!forbes quote r and f

There are so many things I love about R&F.  Most importantly the products really WORK!  Secondly, there are no parties, no minimum monthly sales, no inventory, none of the typical sales shticks you see with most direct sales companies.  

If you’re not sure which regimen or product would be best for your skin, my website includes a handy tool to help you select the right one.  Just go to the website, scroll down to “Find your regimen,” & click “get started.”  After answering just a few simple questions about your skin, you can find the best skin regimen for you.
