Skin care is one of the most important things that you could do for your body!
The skin is the largest organ of your body. It covers and holds all of the ugly stuff on the inside.
“The skin is the largest organ of the body, with a total area of about 20 square feet. The skin protects us from microbes and the elements, helps regulate body temperature, and permits the sensations of touch, heat, and cold.”
Having a skin care routine and keeping your skin clean and in its best health will benefit how you feel, physically and mentally!
Who doesn’t love smooth skin that you don’t have to cover up with makeup?
I entered in a drawing to win some samples of Rodan + Fields’ skin care products from the amazing Amanda Clavette! (check out her website here). She sent me some samples for a free facial! I’ve received a sample from her before of one of the same products that she sent me this time, but I wasn’t able to get around to writing a review. This time, I used the products on different days, just to make sure that I knew the effects of each product. So let’s do this!
I love exfoliating my skin!
Especially with a product that has vitamins that are healthy for your face in it like this one. This ENHANCEMENTS has vitamins C and E. I could instantly feel it working on my face with just a few rubs.
The recommendation is to put this on your skin if your skin is dry. For more sensitive skin like mine, I used the advice on the pack for a gentler exfoliation and dampened my skin and exfoliated that way. It says on the pack that this isn’t for sensitive skin, but I have sensitive skin and it didn’t hurt mine at all. This was only after one use though. It says to use three times a week or as tolerated. With sensitive skin, I would use only once a week.
What I liked about it: the instant feeling of it working on my face and the refreshed feeling after I washed and patted dry.
What I didn’t like about it: the salty taste. Some of it got on my lips and I tasted it. It was like licking my lips after swimming in the ocean. Which isn’t so bad, but I’m not a fan of the taste.

My personal rating for this product : ★ ★ ★ ★
I was instantly drawn to this product because it is known to help firm the skin and help with eye bags and wrinkles. Since waking up earlier, having kids, and getting older… I have had lots of under the eye bags and more visible wrinkles. Even when I don’t smile.
This product goes on smooth and moisturizes while firming your skin. After it dries, I love running my fingers over the smooth firm skin that it leaves behind. This is a product that I may just have to purchase to use some more. You can put it on anytime during the day!
What I like about it the most: The moisturizing smoothness!
What I dislike about it: if I put it too close to my eyes, I get a headache. Which is easily fixed.
My personal rating for this product: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I was very skeptical about this one. There was no way that something that looks like a band – aid would take away my wrinkles. I put it on before bed, by following the instructions that Amanda was so kind to send with it. It was a little hard for me to go to sleep, because I’m a sensitive sleeper and having something on my face like this made me slightly uncomfortable. Though, I did have a very good night sleep that night after I finally got to sleep.
The next morning, I removed them and there was slight residue (the instructions said that that’s normal) but it washed right off with no problem. The eye area still felt tender after a few hours and it felt like I had just waxed. I think it is just because of my sensitive skin. By the end of the day, it was back to feeling normal and felt smoother than ever.
What I liked most: My skin felt tighter and smoother!
What I didn’t like about it: The tender feeling that lasted longer than expected.

The next night, on 3/7/2017, I chose another overnight skin care product to try out. I didn’t try it out with the other overnight product, because if I would’ve had a reaction I wanted to know what it was from exactly. These products can be used together. By putting on the Acute Care strips first THEN these serums.
I had no idea what these were until I sat down and read from front to back all of the pamphlets that were sent to me from Amanda. I thought that they were just little things that you used to massage your skin with. As I read further, I learned that you are supposed to squeeze the liquid out of the ampules onto the specific part of your face that it is made for.
I had already squeezed the blue ampule before the picture above. That ampule was full of a renewing serum for the face, called the REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum. (click here for more details on this serum). This is made for you to renew your skin WHILE YOU’RE SLEEPING! It helps make your skin look younger.
The grey ampule is full of serum for your lips, called the REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum. (click here to find out more details about this serum) As soon as this serum was on my lips, I could feel it smoothing out my lip wrinkles. I LOVED this product, because the lip smoothness lasted for the rest of the week for me. I usually get chapped and skin loose on my lips, but this serum kept that from happening for at least a week or two after applying it. Without having to put on any kind of lip balm or chapstick.
Also, it didn’t taste bad! There wasn’t a nasty taste to it at all.
I woke up the next morning after applying these, washed my face like normal, and got a shower. My face felt incredible!!
What I liked most about them: I could feel the difference of my skin and loved the way my lips felt! Even a week after using it just one time.
What I didn’t like: There was a lot of lip serum in that one ampule. I felt like I had too much on and it may have gotten on my pillow.
My overall rating for these two products: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I enjoyed all of these products so much! I feel like I will possibly have to continue a few of these products as part of my skin care routine. We will see!
