I do love the Redefine cleanser, I think it is one of the key pieces to evening out my skin. That said, it did not remove my makeup. This could be a deal-breaker for some of you, and I don't blame you. Because of this, it was important for me to start double-cleansing, but I needed to find something super gentle so my skin wouldn't get irritated. Enter
TULA KEFIR REPLENISHING OIL CLEANSER
This stuff melts my makeup away, it removes EVERY trace! I use it with my Clarisonic and then I follow up with my redefine cleanser; this has given me amazing results. (If you're double-cleansing it's definitely the way to go, but if you're oily and only cleansing once, stick with Tula's regular Purifying Face Cleanser.)
This is another one of my favorite R+F products. It has helped my (and Mike's) skin become so much less red over time. I never miss a day without it and I love having it on hand when my allergies flare or when I do any sort of microdermabrasion.
RODAN AND FIELDS MICRODERMABRASION PASTE
I started using this paste about once or twice per week. It does an amazing job, but I can say that my face was often red and irritated after. I loved the benefits but not the fallout.
TULA'S DUAL-PHASE SKIN REVIVING TREATMENT PADS
Recently I was lucky enough to try Tula's Dual-Phase Skin Reviving Treatment Pads. Tula sent them to me and asked me to use them for the first time live on Instastories. I was so excited for a company to allow me to do an honset, in-the-moment review. These claim to be an at home facial for sensitive skin, and knowing my problems with the R+F paste, I thought I'd give it a try. I've used it twice since and both times it gave me the SAME results as R+F, with much less redness. I'm actually going to make a permanent switch. You can see a live video of me using them below!
I acutally didn't like the lash boost. I think I might be the only one on the planet. Did it work? Yes, it did. Did I pay a major price with sandpaper eyes that were puffy and red... oh yes. I opted to discontinue use because it was truly unbearable. I've also used Neulash and had a less severe reaction. That said, since then I've started using castor or argan oil on my lashes and it is doing a nice job.
RODAN AND FIELDS EYE CREAM
I also struggled with the eye cream which made me sad since it is supposed to be a miracle product. It made my eyes burn terribly too. I do find now that I can sometimes use it, if I apply it correctly and put it no where near my eyes. Makes sense no? Luckily I found a few other eye products that I love that don't irritate my eyes at all.
TULA MULTI-SPECTRUM EYE RENEWAL SERUM
This eye cream depuffs my eyes like nothing else I've tried. Even the new R+F eye cream aimed at puffiness hasn't given me as good as a result as this does. Again, I do have sensitive eyes, so many products are just too strong.
JOSIE MARAN DEVOTION CREAMY ARGAN MILK EYE SERUM
I also love Josie Maran's Devotion Creamy Argan Milk Eye Serum for when my sensitive eyes need a dose of extra moisture. I LOVE layering this on at night as it can be used on eyelids too. It has never burned or bothered my eyes at all.
If you're going to make an investment, buy the Redefine four piece kit and call it a day. Then supplement with Tula or anything else you think you may need. I love doing this with Tula because it doesn't clash with any of the other products I'm using either. If you decide to try something, you can use SUNSETSHOLIDAY for 20% off of your purchase.
