Planning a wedding or bar/bat mitzvah can be stressful enough – you don’t need to worry about your skin too! Whatever your skincare concern – wrinkles, acne, discoloration, or sensitivity – there is help! Here’s my personal story.
I remember the day vividly. I was going in for my annual dermatologist appointment with one thing on my mind – WRINKLES! It’s such a fast progression from worrying about pimples to wrinkles – I was completely unprepared! So I asked the Doctor – “What cream do you recommend that is effective for getting rid of wrinkles?” And I’ll never forget her response. “Your wrinkles won’t go away with any cream. Your best prevention method is to start early with Botox.” Whooooah – not the answer I was expecting. I was barely 30 at the time.
Spoiler Alert: My dermatologist was wrong!

I have nothing against Botox or Juvi-Derm. However I wasn’t ready to go down that path. I was not prepared to completely write off the multi-billion dollar skincare industry as ineffective. Not yet.
Since then, I’ve tried a number of products with some success, but not the success I was looking for. And then I took notice of changes in some of my friends. I saw firsthand that there was an alternative to Botox that actually worked. That alternative is skincare products from Rodan + Fields. Seeing these real before & after shots intrigued me enough to finally get me to pick up the phone.
These are real results after 5 weeks using the REDEFINE (anti-aging) regimen and exfoliator.
Suffer from acne? Here are results after only 2 weeks of using the UNBLEMISH regimen. READ MORE ......
