Friday Favorites-Radiant Defense

IMG_0387

It is my favorite day for blogging! On Fridays I am going to share with you something that is a favorite thing in my life. Those things could include things like books, songs, make-up products, planners, kitchen items, TV shows, movies, food, skincare products, and more.  The possibilities are endless.  There are just so many things that I love that I want to share with you, so lets get going!

One thing I am loving right now as I am typing is the soundtrack to the The Greatest Showman. Oh my! If you haven’t seen the movie, you need to.  The music is amazing! I find it super inspirational.  I don’t think I could even choose just one song from the soundtrack as my favorite.  I really love them all. I was definitely late to the game on this one and only watched this movie a few weeks ago.  I am so sad that I waited because I missed out on the opportunity to see it in theaters. I immediately bought the whole soundtrack after I watched it. If you aren’t into musicals, you may not like it, but I highly recommend it! It is a story about P.T. Barnum staring Hugh Jackman, Zac Effron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, and many more talented individuals.  The story shows the struggles of coming from nothing and chasing big dreams at all costs.  It is how a young man created the huge sensation of the world famous circus. It is so good! I can’t wait to watch it again!

I am an independent consultant for Rodan + Fields (R+F).  If you don’t know what R+F is, let me give you a brief rundown.  Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, the creators of Proactiv Solution, launched a skincare company 10 years ago with a mission to create life-changing skincare solutions for all skin types. R+F is currently the #1 skincare brand in North America and within 10 years has grown into a 1 billion dollar brand with launches in Canada and Australia and more countries in the works. Long story short, these 2 powerful women have created clinically-proven, dermatology-inspired products that work.  They truly have created life-changing skin care giving women (and men) everywhere confidence to go out and face the world.  Now, I promise I am not always going to feature R+F products on here, but they are some of my favorite things so they will make an appearance from time to time like today.

One of my most favorite things right now is R+F’s newest product that launched to all customers 4 days ago.  It is our new Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid.  I have been waiting for this product since I joined R+F two and a half years ago.  This is not a foundation.  It is not a BB cream.  It is not a CC cream.  It is not make-up. Then what is it, you ask? It is a Derma-cosmetic! What in the world does that mean? It is a dermatology-inspired skincare product, which means that it not only perfects your skin, it also protects your skin while giving you a radiant, healthy looking complexion. It color corrects by instantly blurring imperfections. It is non-comedogenic (won’t clog your pores), non-acnegenic (won’t cause you to breakout), oil free, and provides all-day tinted coverage. The best part it that it also provides 3 layers of defense.  It is proven to defend against environmental aggressors (think pollution, daily stress), provide barrier defense (repairs your skins moisture barrier), and provide photo defense (protects against sun damage caused by UVA and UVB rays and disperses infrared rays). What? Is it possible to use a product that not only perfects my skin but that also benefits my skin at the same time? YES!!! This product is amazing! It feels so light-weight on your skin and it is designed to be buildable.  You can choose the amount of coverage you want from light to heavier and you can choose to apply it either with your fingers or the cool brush R+F has available. I prefer the brush but I have friends that prefer to use their fingers.

Radiant Defense comes in 6 flexible, buildable shades that allow you to customize it to your skin color and tone.  Shades range from shell to espresso.  To figure out what shade you are, you can visit my website and take or upload a picture of yourself in our cool digital shade finder.  Click the link above and scroll down until you see “Find Your Shade.” Be sure that the picture you are using is taken without make up and in natural light.  Then “try on” each shade to figure out which one is best for you. It’s super easy! My shade is sand, and I can’t even begin to tell you how obsessed I am with this product.  I love the feel of it on my skin, the radiant glow it gives me, and the way may skin looks and feels since I started using this product 3 weeks ago.  It is amazing! Check out some of the before and afters below.
