Enhancing Lashes, Blurring Fine Lines, and a Hydration Boost from Rodan + Fields 
It is time for a Rodan + Fields update! I have been exploring a few items from them lately and have to share the love! Two of these products are new-to-me and one is an old favorite. So, lets dive right in!

Rodan + Fields | REDEFINE Acute Care:
These Redefine Acute Care patches are seriously one of my top 5 favorite skincare items of all time. Literally. I love them *that* much! I have honestly never tried anything quite like these eye patches before. They work. Period. The effects I see are somewhat temporary. However, there is no question that I see a huge difference when I use these. Perhaps if these were used consistantly over time, then you would see long-term results as well. It is hard for me to evaluate the long term results since I tend to save these eye patches for use only the night before a special event. 


What is Acute Care? The Acute Care patches apply directly to your trouble spots around your eye area to deliver concentrated anti-wrinkle technology right into your fine lines or wrinkles. They work to plump them up and smooth them out. The product contains a "Liquid Cone Technology" that infuses peptides and hyaluronic acid directly into the skin to target your fine lines or wrinkles. You will see immediate results and possibly long-term results with continued use.

How to Use Acute Care:
Ideally, you should apply these a couple times a week. However, as I mentioned earlier, I tend to reserve these for special occasions or any event where I want my skin really looking its best! 

To use, you apply Acute Care directly to your eye area or targeted trouble spot right after washing your face. It is important that your skin has nothing else on it for the patches to adhere properly. I just stick the patches right outside my eye area where my crows feet expression fine lines are around my eye area. Then I proceed with my usual skincare steps avoiding the patches. When you apply the patches, you just gently press in the patches. You can almost feel the ingredients penetrating your skin like an injection of sorts. You wear these patches overnight. When you first apply, the patches feel somewhat like a band-aid. I try not to get too close to my eye because if I do, the patches really drive me crazy. However, once you have worn them for a few minutes you totally end up forgetting you are wearing them. They are not uncomfortable to sleep in. 

In the morning, simply remove they eye stickers when you wake up. You will immediately notice how plump your skin is underneath the patch! This is not the first time that I have ever tried these awesome Acute Care patches. I got a box a few years ago and totally loved them then, too. Honestly, I would buy these all the time if I could! The price is a bit high. So, if you can afford to use these all the time, then you will really love the results! However, I do like to reserve these for special occasions since they are expensive. These are amazing and I really love them! I would honestly say these are the next best thing to botox. No, they don't freeze your muscles nor skin like botox, but they smooth out the fine lines like no other topical that I have used! Seriously amazing!!! 

Essential Ingredients:
These patches only have two key ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid (a humectant that plumps wrinkles and keeps skin super hydrated) and Sh-Oligopeptide-1 (reduces wrinkles and increases firmness and elasticity).

Rodan + Fields | Active Hydration Serum:
A change of season can bring on skincare change as well. As the air cools, you might need to rehydrate your skin and prepare it for the cold weather with this soothing and hydrating serum.

This serum is packed with awesome ingredients like glycerin, ceramides, silicones, and more. Utilizing Rodan + Fields' widely acclaimed proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix Technology, this serum attracts and locks in moisture from the atmosphere to form a hydrating reservoir on the skin’s surface. Rodan + Feilds states that the oil-free serum is clinically tested to raise skin’s hydration level by 200% after just one use. This makes sense given the products ingredients. The 6th ingredient listed is Sodium hyaluronate which is the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid (and hyaluronic acid holds/draws water into the skin). The smaller molecule size allows it to hold water better than any other natural substance.


I love the lightweight and non-greasy feel of this serum. I personally love using a humectant like this one right after cleansing and before moisturizing.  I only need about 2 drops of this serum for my entire face. My skin just drinks this in! It hydrates beautifully and really plumps the skin to smooth fine lines.

Rodan and Fields | Enhancements Lash Boost:
Have you guys seen some of the before/after pictures floating around Facebook for this product? I sure have! As someone with naturally skimpy and underwhelming lashes, I was instantly intrigued with this product.

I am no stranger to lash serums. I have tried quite a few including the Rx Latisse. I have seen nice results with many lash serums in the past and currently. So, I was super excited to try Lash Boost by Rodan and Fields to see how it compares.

Lash Boost takes time to work as it works with your lashes' growth cycle. So, results are seen in 4-8 weeks. If you are diligent about applying every night and are patient, you will be very happy! There is no question that this product works and you will get longer and possibly somewhat fuller lashes as well. However, like with all lash serums, it takes time.

Since I have previously used lash serums and the Rx Latisse, I do not have a good "before" picture to share from this product. I typically rotate Latisse with a non-perscription lash serum. I love the results with Latisse, but I do find it to be irritating to the eye area. So, my best results with it are when I rotate it with a non-perscription lash serum. For my testing phase of Lash Boost, I did not use my Latisse at all and just used Lash Boost for 4 weeks. After 4 weeks, I am happy to report that my lashes still are significantly longer and perhaps a wee bit fuller than my natural lashes. I did not seem to lose any length from switching from Latisse to Lash Boost. Also, I seem to get less eye area irritation with Lash Boost rather than Latisse. So, I am very, very happy with the Lash Boost product! It works and I am super pleased. The packging is really nice, too! It is so nice having the brush attached within the product. So, the brush and overall packaging is much, much better than Latisse!

Here are specific instructions from Rodan + Fields on how to apply Lash Boost:
Step 1: Remove makeup and cleanse face with the first step of your Regimen before using Lash Boost. Eyelids and lashes should be completely clean and dry.

Step 2: Apply Rodan + Fields Lash Boost only along the upper lash line of both eyes. Dip the brush once per eye and wipe any excess product off the brush before applying.

Step 3: Gently wipe off any excess serum from your eyelids or lashes. Do not wash your face or eye area after applying.

Step 4: Wait approximately 90 seconds for Rodan + Fields Lash Boost to dry before going to sleep or applying other products around your eye area. Make sure to avoid eyelids and lashes when applying any product to the eye area, including eye cream.

There is no question, some of these products are certainly must-haves in my beauty routine. For me, with my natrually short/skimpy lashes, a lash serum is a must and Lash Boost is fantastic! I highly recommend it to give oomph to your lashes. Is it a beauty necessity? Well, possibly not for some as the price is very high. However, if you have the money to spend and want a great way to really give your overall look a boost, having longer lashes really is a treat! For me, the Acute Care patches are a beauty splurge worth having! Yes, they are pricey. However, in my case, I can really make them last by saving them for special occasions. So, those two Rodan + Fields products are must haves in my book! I love the serum, too! However, the Lash Boost and Acute Care really, really stand out as star products.

What do you love from Rodan + Fields? I would love to explore the line further!!!
