My Updated Skincare Routine: Rodan + Fields New + Improved REDEFINE Regimen

Thank you to Rodan + Fields for sponsoring this post!

People are CONSISTENTLY surprised when they hear how old I am. I get it – age is just a number, you’re only as young as you feel, blah, blah, blah. But come on. I’m 36 and single. I’m absolutely thrilled when someone guesses that I’m in my 20s. (Usually they’ll go with 26, which is a big win in my book!!) I ordered a glass of wine on a first date a few weeks ago and when the waitress checked my ID, she ACTUALLY gasped and said “OH WOW!” It felt good, but also… rude? LOL! At least I know my anti-aging skincare routine is working!

Now, full disclosure – I have great genes. My grandpa looked 60 in his 80s and my mom looks nowhere near her age. Genetics are definitely working in my favor. But great genes aside… an effective skincare routine is just as, if not more, important. You don’t need to have great genes to remain youthful. You just have to find the right skincare routine; the right ingredients, in the right formulation, used in the right order in conjunction with products that work together harmoniously to create a unified system of tackling your skincare concerns. (You may remember this from my recent blog post all about the Multi-Med Therapy approach to skincare! Make sure you check out that post if you missed it.)

Researching the Multi-Med Therapy approach used by Rodan + Fields last month really opened my eyes and made me reevaluate what I was doing for my skin. I’ve made some changes to my skincare routine that have been really effective, and I knew I had to share!

So, what am I doing differently?

Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Regimen

Mainly, I have integrated the NEW REDEFINE Regimen by Rodan + Fields. REDEFINE Regimen is a 3-step, dermatology-inspired routine that smooths the look of fine lines and deep wrinkles, while visibly tightening the pores, firming, lifting and sculpting. I love that the 3-step skincare routine is formulated to work together to fight the effects of aging.

As I mentioned in my blog post on Multi-Med Therapy– the underlying causes of all of our major skincare concerns are usually complicated. Spot treating problems after the fact is not nearly as effective as targeting the underlying issues with a multi-step approach to getting the problem under control and seeing noticeable changes to your skin. There’s no “magic bullet” solution; nothing will change your skin overnight. Skincare truly does take 4-8 weeks to work and show visible results. Many people get discouraged when they don’t see change immediately, and if that’s you– stick with it! Give your skin time. (Rodan + Fields gets this which is why they have a 60-day back guarantee on all of their products.)

OK, let’s get into the nitty-gritty: WHAT exactly is the REDEFINE Regimen and what do I think about the products?

As I mentioned before, REDEFINE Regimen is a 3-step skincare routine. While the system itself is a tried-and-true staple for R+F, the collection has undergone a bit of an overhaul and the relaunched collection is better than ever! The NEW REDEFINE Regimen offers improved versions of the hero products, as well as new product additions to provide customers with a customized approach to choose products based on individual texture preference and skincare needs. (Lotion versions of both AM and PM products and a foaming, creamy cleanser option!)

Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Cleansers

STEP 1: CLEANSER

The NEW REDEFINE Regimen now offers a choice in cleanser– the REDEFINE Daily Clay Cleanser or the REDEFINE Daily Foaming Cleanser.

Step 1: REDEFINE Daily Clay Cleanser

2-in-1 cleanser + mask gently exfoliates, smooths + removes daily impurities like dirt, oil + makeup.

● Kaolin Clay – gently exfoliates and purifies for softer skin

● Ectoin (NEW)– Natural amino acid to help reduce the look of lines, wrinkles, and boost visible firmness

● Glyceryl Glucoside (NEW) – new ingredient in the REDEFINE Daily Clay Cleanser, which is a sugar derivative to help reduce the look of lines, wrinkles, and boost visible firmness

OR 

Step 1: REDEFINE Daily Foaming Cleanser

New to the REDEFINE Regimen collection, Creamy foaming cleanser lathers to leave skin feeling soft + supple as it removes daily impurities like dirt, oil + makeup.

● Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) – gently exfoliates skin’s surface for an even-looking tone and texture

● Ectoin – a natural amino acid to help reduce the look of lines, wrinkles, and boost visible firmness

● Glyceryl Glucoside – a sugar derivatives to help reduce the look of lines, wrinkles, and boost visible firmness

I love that we now have options on which cleanser to use! I love the Daily Clay Cleanser, but I don’t find that I need to use a clay cleanser twice a day. I prefer to use the Daily Clay Cleanser as a mask twice a week and the rest of the time use the Daily Foaming Cleanser.

I was pleasantly surprised at how hydrated my skin feels after using the Daily Clay Cleanser! Typically my skin feels dry and itchy after using a clay mask. Not so with the REDEFINE Daily Clay Cleanser. It also has a great smell and texture.

I absolutely love a creamy cleanser, so the Creamy Foaming Cleanser is my typical go-to for every day. This rich cleanser leaves my skin feeling super clean and soft as well as moisturized!

STEP 2: REDEFINE Pore Refining Toner

Skin softening toner that minimizes the appearance of pores + exfoliates to promote natural cell turnover. This highly active prep solution allows for better and more even absorption on the surface of the skin to get the maximum benefits from the efficacious moisturizer that follows.

● Vitamin B3 – Niacinamide to visibly even the appearance of skin tone for a youthful glow

● Deep Sea Water – Found in the Noirmoutier Island off the Atlantic coast of France and rich in natural minerals to help minimize the appearance of pores

● Fruit Acids – Help promote natural cell turnover for smoother skin texture

Toners are one of those things that typically scare me because in the past… they’ve made me break out. FINALLY I’ve found one that doesn’t– the REDEFINE Pore Refining Toner. Love how fresh my skin feels after using and the glow it leaves me with!

Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Moisturizer

STEP 3: MOISTURIZER

Step 3 offers the biggest variety of options; both a lotion and cream option for both AM and PM. Which you choose to use is personal preference and they’re all great!

Rodan + Fields REDEFINE – Step 3 AM

MORNING OPTIONS

Step 3a (AM): REDEFINE Triple Defense Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Medium-weight moisturizing day cream + sunscreen nourishes skin while improving the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles + firms while it protects against harmful UV rays

RF3 Antioxidant Complex, a proprietary technology to Rodan + Fields that defends against daily environmental aggressors for a more youthful appearance

Key Ingredients:

● Peptides – minimizes the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, and helps visibly firm skin

● Grape Extract – helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles

● Beet Extract – provides immediate and longer lasting moisturization to plump the skin and visibly smooth fine lines and wrinkles

Step 3a (AM): REDEFINE Triple Defense Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Lightweight moisturizing lotion + sunscreen nourishes skin while improving the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles + firms while it protects against harmful UV rays.

Antioxidant Technology – a proprietary technology to Rodan + Fields that defends against daily environmental aggressors for a more youthful appearance

Key Ingredients:

● Peptides – minimizes the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, and helps visibly firm skin

● Grape Extract – helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles

● Beet Extract – provides immediate and longer lasting moisturization to plump the skin and visibly smooth fine lines and wrinkles

I actually love both morning Step 3 options! I choose which one to use for the day based on how my skin is feeling, what I used the night before, and what type of makeup I’m wearing.

If I used a face oil the previous night or my skin is feeling really moisturized, I’ll go with the lotion. I also usually go for the lotion if I’m wearing a mineral powder foundation or a full coverage foundation and am going full glam for the day.

If my skin feels a bit drier, I’ll go for the cream. Most days I find myself going for the cream, because I love a rich, luxurious face cream! I also go for the cream on days when I’m not planning on not wearing makeup and just letting my skin breathe, which these days seems to be pretty often!

Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Step 3 PM

NIGHT OPTIONS

Step 3b (PM): REDEFINE Overnight Restorative Cream

Rich, deep moisturizing night cream that improves the look of fine lines + deep wrinkles, plus visibly lifts, sculpts + defines to improve facial contours for younger-looking skin.

● Exclusive Peptide Technology – Helps sculpt and lift to minimize the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles

● Retinoid Science – combines Bakuchiol, a plant-derived alternative to Retinol, and Glycolic Acid to target fine lines and deep wrinkles for more sculpt, definition, and smoother-looking skin

● Vitamin B3 – a new ingredient to the cream, Niacinamide that evens the appearance of skin tone for a youthful glow

Step 3b (PM): REDEFINE Overnight Reparative Lotion

Potent nighttime lotion improves the look of fine lines + deep wrinkles, plus visibly lifts, sculpts + defines to improve facial contours for younger-looking skin.

● Retinal MD Technology – targets fine lines and deep wrinkles to visibly sculpt, define, and smooth skin

● Exclusive Peptide Technology – that helps sculpt and lift to minimize the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles

● Vitamin B3 – Niacinamide that evens the appearance of skin tone for a youthful glow

I love the feel of the Overnight Restorative Cream and typically find myself using that. I try to alternate the cream and lotion and really love both, but the cream is it for me. I just like the feel of a heavier cream to go to bed!

Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Skincare review

FINAL THOUGHTS 

I really love using the REDEFINE Regimen. I feel like it just makes my skincare routine quick, effortless, and easy. It takes the guesswork out of skincare. I can rest assured that the products I’m using are working together harmoniously and I’m not just using a bunch of products that are actually canceling each other out or not balancing to maximize my results.

The Regimen retails for $220 and lasts 60 days. Basically, you’re paying $3.60 a day for great skin, I think that’s a pretty good value. (Considering that I have a passion for pricey moisturizers… this is a steal haha!)

After using the REDEFINE Regimen for 60 days, my skin is looking great, it’s super soft, hydrated and like I said… I’m shocking the people who check my ID at bars lol! Definitely recommend hopping on the R+F train and ordering your own REDEFINE Regimen!

Your stylish BFF. Obsessed with coffee, crop tops, and Amazon. Love dressing up. Always on the hunt for the perfect bag, boot or LBD to share with you, my BFF. Let's do life together.
