Let's talk about my face.

February 20, 2021

I can't believe I haven't said anything here in 4 years! I really must change the header on this page. The products have definitely evolved over the years. I'll change it soon.

Meanwhile, I am still a Rodan+Fields Consultant and still use the products regularly. I look in the mirror and think, WOW, what beautiful skin on this 62 year old! These pics are from a couple of days ago. There is no filter. All me. No foundation, just Mac Russian Red Lipstick, mascara and eyeliner.

Rosy's Face

Here's what I use and LOVE it all. Most items are from the Redefine Regimen, some Essentials and some Enhancements.

There are also regimens Soothe for Sensitive Skin, Reverse to reduce skin discoloration, Unblemish to help address adult acne, Spotless for teens and young adults, and Recharge to boost dry skin.

Rodan + Fields Products

There are many more items that I have used including the Lip Renewing Serum, Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex and so much more. You can explore here:

Did I mention that they have 60-Day Money Back Guarantee? If you’re not completely satisfied with your Rodan+Fields order, follow the return instructions on the website within 60 days from the date of purchase to receive a full refund.

Got Bigger Lashes?

November 10, 2017

So, it's coming up to a year that I've been using this product and I couldn't be more pleased! Here's a side by side comparison with no mascara/liner. The top photo is my skimpy lashes. Although I saw results in the first 12 weeks, a year later, they are amazing results!

Got Lashes?

March 4, 2017

So, this was my before pic. I started using Rodan + Fields Lash Boost on November 15, 2016.

Rosy's lashes before Lash Boost

After using it every night, I could see visible results! Fuller and longer. In the picture above and the picture below, I am not wearing mascara.

Lashes After

I have straight eyelashes so I do curl them. In this naked picture from before, I have no mascara and my lashes are curled.

Before Lash Boost

In this picture after, I have no mascara and my lashes are curled.

Lash Boost No Mascara

In the following picture I have one coat of mascara.

Lash Boost One Coat

In the following picture, I have two coats of mascara and liner. It feels SO good to have big beautiful lashes, without having to use false lashes or fiber mascaras. Want yours? Go here (click)! Or call me or email me!

Sorry about the lipstick on the teeth.

Why Didn't I Think Of This Before?

September 7, 2016

So, you know how you MUST get every last drop of your Rodan + Field's Cleansing Mask?

Rodan + Fields Redefine Cleansing Mask

And you know how you cut open the container to get every last bit?

Rodan + Fields Cleansing

Because look how much is still in there!

Rodan + Fields

And you know how you try ways to close it back up before it dries up so you can use every last speck but it never works?

Rodan + Fields

Well, today I FINALLY stumbled upon a way! You just cover it with the piece you cut off! DUH!

Rodan + Fields

It stays fresh as a daisy!

Rodan + Fields

And if you already have been doing this for years, don't tell me because I'll feel dumb because it took me so long to figure it out.

Rodan + Fields is Number 1!

Youthful Skin

December 1, 2015

I was shopping at Cost Plus in Concord today. They had a special on Champagne. If you buy 4 bottles, you get 20% off. Since I'm on this Champagne kick, I purchased some. Much to my delight, the checkout girl asked for my ID. I laughed and just looked at her. But she waited for me to pull it out. OK, sure! You've actually just made my day! I am 57.

Carded at 57.

So what's the secret you ask? Well, my Rodan + Fields Regimen, of course (AND Zumba). What do I use? Basically everything! Yep, pretty much everything in the Redefine Line (click here). The daily cleanser, toner, day/night cream, eye cream, Exfoliator, the micro exfoliating roller, the night serum, the lip serum, the hand treatment. Everything!

Want to know more? Contact me!

You can buy retail, but why? You can become a Preferred Customer and get 10% off of the product plus free shipping. Or, you can become a Consultant and get all the product AND help others discover the fountain of youth!

Nat (red lipstick center) uses Rodan + Fields. She has used the Soothe Regimen when needed, the UnBlemish when needed and regularly uses Redefine. Click on the picture for a better view. She is not wearing foundation.

Just sayin'.

Macro Filter


Gross or Eye Opener?

April 5, 2015

So, it's coming up on 3 years that I have been using the Rodan + Fields Redefine Regimen. I use the whole shebang (Redefine Power Pack) and I can't tell you how much I love it!

Last summer, when we took our trip to Eagle Lake, my Little Honey Bunch didn't bring my last load of stuff. Unfortunately, it had all my Rodan + Fields products! Let me tell you face REALLY missed them for a week. The difference was SO noticeable!

The other day after using my Macro Exfoliator, I was amazed at what came off of my face! Not for the weak of heart! Look no further if you do not wish to be grossed out!

The filter on the left is a new one. The one on the right is the one I removed after using the Macro Exfoliator.

Macro Filter

Pretty gross, huh? Millions of dead skin cells removed! Plus, an unintended benefit is that it removes facial hair! Gross, but true!

You, too, could have beautiful skin. Click on the Exfoliator photo to learn more!

56 or 34?

I started working out with a trainer (because I gained weight because I injured my knee and didn't dance since March) and this is what he said to me (bottom post). Isn't that the sweetest? Are you in your 50's and want to look like you're in your 30's? Contact me!

A New Venture - The Fountain of Youth

August 31, 2012

A couple of years ago, a friend of mine invited me to a Rodan + Fields home product party. I had just gotten my braces and was taking forever to clean them at night. When I saw that this regimen would take more than the two seconds I usually spent on my face at night, I just couldn't see adding more time to my already lengthy night time regimen. Plus, how could I spend $300 on products for my face when I could just run down to Costco and get a bottle of Oil of Olay for $30?

Fast forward a couple of years. My long time Weight Watchers leader, Mary Ann Benedetti, became a Rodan + Fields Consultant. She asked me to come with her on what was sure to be a profitable journey, both monetarily and physically. Again, I declined. No, me and my bottle of Oil of Olay were just fine.

Then this happened, I took a picture with her, 22 months after she had started using the products.

Mary Ann and Rosy

She had the most beautiful, line free skin! So I said, "OK, sign me up!" I didn't just buy the products, I jumped in with both feet and became a consultant. I held my BBL (Big Business Launch) last Friday, August 24th, with Mary Ann by my side, and became an Executive Level Consultant that night!

Rosy and Mary Ann

Thank you to all who are joining me in discovering this Fountain of Youth!

I am learning more and more about the product and will soon be able to run demonstrations with Mary Ann holding my hand. I hope. In any case, I decided that I would be my own best example of a before and after. Here is a picture of me before I started using the products. I will post another in a couple of weeks and we shall possible see an improvement! (Click for larger view.)
