One aspect of skincare that I never take enough time for is really good, cleansing, and clarifying skincare. Today, I took the time to try out some new products and wanted to provide y’all with my opinions on the results.

This set from Rodan and Fields includes 3 products that are marketed as a “mini facial”. If you’re unfamiliar with the purpose and benefits of a micro-dermabrasion, here are a few facts:

  • Uses microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin
  • Treats sun damage, scars, and deep facial lines
  • Depending on the location of the procedure, micro-dermabrashions range in cost from $75-$200

Step 1

Claim: Improves skin texture and tone

Massage Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste over face for 3-60 seconds, avoiding eye area. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.

Step 2

Claim: Visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and smoothes skin’s texture

After cleansing, open the blue Redefine Night Renewing Serum capsule and apply contents over entire face avoiding the eye area

Step 3

Claim: Reduce the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, restores moisture, and smoothes texture

Open the silver Redefine Lip Renewing Serum capsule and apply entire contents to lips

My Review

I followed the steps as they appear above and found the process to be very easy and quite therapeutic. Though it will take using the Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste several times in order to notice a difference in the appearance of my acne scars, I can definitely feel a difference in my skin’s texture after using the paste just once! I rubbed the paste on my face as instructed and rinsed using warm water. Once I started to apply the Redefine Night Renewing Serum all over my face, I really noticed a difference in the texture.

Side note: I use a Clarisonic Pro with a cleanser a few times a week but my skin has never felt this smooth other than when I’ve had an actual micro-dermabrasion done in a spa.

I wish I would have taken a video of my first experience using these products because I’m pretty sure my mouth fell open in disbelief. Imagine rubbing Johnson’s baby lotion on a baby’s bottom…my face is that kind of smooth! The following day, I also noticed how smoothly my foundation applies. My skin was a wreck after being in Colorado last week and traveling by plane. I had dry patches on my nose and on either side of my mouth. Though I was moisturizing and using my Clarisonic, my foundation was clinging to those dry areas. After I used the Enhancement paste just once, those dry patches were GONE! I’m not easily impressed by skincare products, but this “mini facial” package is a must-have!
