Rodan + Fields Lip Treatments | Review

I've said it before and I will say it again - and again, I am sure - skin care is super important! Included in overall skin care I also truly believe in also taking special care of the eyes and lips. Those are often areas of the face (and skin care routine) most people overlook, but if you want to keep your youthful features - I suggest giving them some thought! ;)

On that note, today I have a review to share with you on some fantastic Lip Care products that I received to try c/o Rodan + Fields consultant Kristen Weigand. She was kind enough to send me several capsules of the REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum and the ESSENTIALS Lip Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 25 (lip balm). 

First up, lets chat about that ESSENTIALS Lip Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 25
4.25 g/.15 oz. each, available in packs of two for $16

Description: Defend your lips daily against the aging effects of the sun while treating them to moisturizing lipid molecules and peptides to help boost collagen production and smooth lip texture. 

ESSENTIALS Lip Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 25 effectively blocks harmful UVA rays with SHIELDrf, our exclusive complex of avobenzone, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, while hydrating and moisturizing lips with shea butter, avocado and sunflower seed oil. 

This anti-aging lip balm also contains dimethicone to protect lips’ delicate moisture barrier and antioxidant vitamins A, C and E to defend against free radicals, leaving you with soft, smooth, healthy-looking lips. 

My Thoughts: Right off the bat I have got to admit, I have a "love/hate" relationship with this balm!! The reason I didn't enjoy is much is totally personal and probably wont be an issue for anyone else. But I am bringing it up because it prevented me from using it as often as I had hoped to. The scent is a big no-go for me. Its a pretty strong bitter grapefruit scent that I just couldn't get passed most of the time. I have a sensitive nose and the scent lingers quite a bit. So the smell and taste really didn't sit well with me unfortunately. :( Aside from the scent though, I loved it!

Why I loved it: Its got SPF 25 which is a wonderful thing, especially for these hot summer days!! Not only does it protect the lips, its also very moisturizing and hydrating. I know what you are thinking - its a lip balm it should be moisturizing, right, but not all lip balms are! This one does a great job at keeping the lips moisturized. I also love that this doesn't leave any waxy residue once it wears off either. Your lips just feel nice and soft. ♥

Now lets talk about the wonderful REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum 
$54 for a container fulled with 60 Capsules.

Description: Restore and maintain your fuller, younger-looking lips. REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum is rich with peptides and antioxidants, including vitamin E, to help lips retain their natural moisture, visibly smooth lip texture and reduce the appearance of lip wrinkles. Apply at night after your evening skin care routine.

My Thoughts: Because I literally always have chapped lip, I usually always apply lip balm all through out the day. And then a thicker lip balm before bed to help soften my lips by morning. So to have a product that is specifically made as a night time treatment for the lips is so perfect. This serum is light enough that it doesn't feel too heavy on the lips, but thick enough to stay on your lips all night. So you wake in the morning with soft, plump and moisturized lips!

Why I love it: The serum comes in individual capsules that can be used up to 3 times. The directions say to use one entire capsule on the lips, but I found that to be quite a bit of product! So I stretched mine to 2 or even 3 uses! So depending on how you use it - the 60 capsules can last you anywhere from 2-4 (maybe 5) months. And of course another reason to love it!? Just look at my results (2 week difference): 
As I already mentioned, my lips are usually ALWAYS dry and chapped. There is a reason I am a lip balm junkie. lol I usually have to do quite a bit of exfoliating and moisturizing before (and after) all my lip swatches as well as just in general to keep them looking nice. But this serum has helped heal my lips tremendously, and  keep maintenance on my lips down quite a bit. YAY!

Now Rodan + Fields offers quite a bit more for Skin Care - so if you are interested in these products mentioned or learning about any other products they have to offer, I know that Kristen would be thrilled to tell you more!! For those who sign up as a preferred customer you can get products at a discounted price.
