Thank you to Rodan + Fields for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
If we’re being honest, skincare was never in my list of priorities growing up. I didn’t struggle with acne and sometimes, would literally just use a makeup wipe and go to bed. Other times, I’d sleep in makeup. I wish I could shake my 20-year-old self and remind her that her skin is her largest organ and to take care of it! You only get one!
But since I can’t go back in time, I’ve been doing my best to make up for lost time and really make an effort to take care of my skin. Some people believe that simply using a face wash is all they need to be doing. But in reality, there is so much more you can do for your skin and honestly, what your skin craves. I started using the Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Regimen and today, I wanted to share my thoughts and experience with you!
First, let’s chat about the REDEFINE Regimen. I was specifically curious about this regimen because of the personalization aspects. The 3-step routine is customized for you and your skin type and skincare needs, which I find to be super important because not everyone fits into a specific mold when it comes to taking care of your skin.
Step 1: The first product to choose is your cleanser; choose between the REDEFINE Daily Clay Cleanser or the REDEFINE Daily Foaming Cleanser. Let me break down the difference of the two cleansers first and then I will share my thoughts on them!
REDEFINE Daily Foaming Cleanser a 2-in-1 cleanser + mask that gently exfoliates, smooths + removes daily impurities like dirt, oil + makeup.
REDEFINE Daily Clay Cleanser is a creamy foaming cleanser that lathers to leave skin feeling soft + supple as it removes daily impurities like dirt, oil + makeup.
After trying both of these, I like them for different reasons. But if I had to choose one of them, I’d probably choose the Daily Clay Cleanser because I loved how clean my face felt after using it. The subtle exfoliation really felt like it was deep and working its magic to get everything off my face. But if you prefer a lather when cleansing your face, go with the Daily Foaming Cleanser. Gentle on skin but also does a great job at removing dirt, oil and makeup.
Step 2: The next product in the REDEFINE Regimen is the REDEFINE Pore Refining Toner. Toner is always my favorite skincare step when it comes to a routine; it just makes my skin feel so refreshed! What’s the purpose of toner? It minimizes the appearance of pores and exfoliates to promote natural cell turnover. It’s applied before moisturizer to prep the skin and allow for better absorption. The toner is the only part of the routine that is the same for everyone, no matter which other products they choose! You’ll want to use toner day and night!
Step 3: Next you will choose your moisturizers; one for the morning and one for the evening.
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.
REDEFINE Triple Defense Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30: Lightweight moisturizing lotion + sunscreen nourishes skin while improving the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles + visiblt firms while it protects against harmful UV rays.
When it came to the two of these, I preferred the lotion vs. the cream because it felt lighter on my skin. However, if you have dry skin, I’d recommend the cream!
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.
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.
Again, I preferred the Reparative Lotion for everyday use but if my skin was feeling extra dry, I’d reach for the Restorative Cream. They both have a variety of wonderful benefits but some of the ones that cross over include helping with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and evening the look of skin tone for a younger appearance.
Here are some of the key ingredients and benefits from the REDEFINE Regimen:
- Grape Extract – minimizes the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eye area

Overall, I loved the idea of the customization and ease of choosing the right products for my skin. My only recommendation would be to ease your way into the new routine. I had some breakouts, and I can’t be sure whether they were from wearing a mask or shocking my skin with a new skincare regimen.
