My journey here…
In January I went to my dermatologist for my full body scan. As she was finishing up she took her hands, swept them around my face in a circular motion and said what are we doing about this acne. I looked at her dumbly, blinked a couple of times and laughed it off with a compalining about it. She then went into her solution with products and I nodded and said yes, sure, how much?!?!, wow, ok, well I’ll try it. THEN a very deep breath credit card swipe later I was on my way home, armed and dangerous. I even Instagrammed my new gunfire…
I liked the product. Nothing major changed but I was willing to give it the 6 months she mentioned it might take. In March I went to a makeup event at my favorite local salon. The Aveda artist was just getting started with the concealer and as were chit-chatting away I noticed she kept dotting. Dot after dot after dot after… I remember thinking man I didn’t know there was that much to cover up. Took the wind from my expensive skin-care product sails.
In May, my friend Jessica invited me over to her house for some new skin-care she was getting involved in. I knew Jessica had built a new house and I wanted to see it. That was my only intention. Only.
The two things that had me hooked on the products… first the before and afters. They were jaw dropping. Second, the warranty. All of the products come with a 60-day, empty jar, money-back guarantee. I immediately thought of my current products that were working just ok and that were costing A LOT. There was no warranty that came with those or any other product I’d ever purchased before for that matter. I am a person that likes buying and returning so this was a big bonus for me. During the presentation I was thinking of all the people I wanted to tell about these products. I was also thinking why wouldn’t I try it. I can return it!
I left Jessica’s house definitely going to buy the Rodan + Fields product line and maybe partnering up with the DRS that also created Proactiv! I have a teeny tiny tendency to go all-in while I’m excited and then wish I hadn’t later. I didn’t want to make that kind of decision with this. It felt different and I wanted to make sure I was really there.
Over the next two days I thought and talked and dreamed and thought. Babe and I had a great conversation with the devil’s advocate and he left the ball in my court with his full support no matter what I decided. For every con, I had two pros. And even after three days of just processing it I was still excited and I was still intrigued and I was still kind of scared to try it. Essentially, I was sold.
I took the plunge. I said YES. I said why not me?
I. LOVE. IT.
I really really do. It’s fulfilled me in a way I never knew I had been lacking since I stopped working. I’m still on the learning curve ball and some things are working, and some things aren’t. I have made back my minimal investment, and THEN some! I’m making small goals and reaching them. Most importantly I’m getting the BEST skin I’VE EVER HAD. I threw that silly bottle pictured above away and wiped my hands of it.
These products are THE BEST. I can’t wait to tell you more about them!!
