My NOT So Positive Rodan and Fields Reverse Review

my rodan and fields reverse reviewMy story…

There seems to be a LOT of mixed Rodan + Fields reviews and I’ve noticed there’s a new Rodan and Fields consultant popping up on Facebook every second day.

One of your close friends of family members might even be one of them?

But the question many people ask is – does it actually work?

AnnaHi there. My name is Anna and I’m a single mom with 2 kids and for the past 15 years I worked as a lifesaver at our local beach.

I no longer work as a lifesaver but definitely had a lot of exposure to the sun and because of this I’ve noticed my skin is starting to age at a rapid pace.

Over the past couple of years I’ve started to notice some dullness and discoloration of my skin around my cheeks, eyes and nose. So much so I had to do something about it.

With all the Rodan and Fields before and after photos popping up all over Facebook I decided to contact on of the consultants for more info.

She seemed lovely and told me everything I needed to know and convinced me to buy the reverse brightening regiment, a total of $190.

It took about 7 days for the package to arrive and I started using it straight away.

My Bad Experience With Rodan and Fields Reverse Regimen

rodan and fields reverse breakoutEverything seemed to be fine for the first few weeks (No noticeable results, but it did make my skin feel hydrated and smooth), BUT around day 27 of using it I started developing some serious acne.

Now, I rarely get pimples so it was a bit of a shock when I started seeing them pop up everywhere and it was bad.

My Rodan + Fields consultant that I bought Reverse from said to try another R+F product called Soothe but I was a little discouraged to try anything from this company again.

The acne got really bad and I had to completely stop applying Reserve because of it.

I thought, I wonder if I’m the only person who got this reaction, so I done a Google search for things like “Rodan and Fields side effects” and “Rodan and Fields reviews“.

To my surprise, there was a lot of other people who had similar reactions, some even worse.

There are many positive reviews but there seems to be a lot of negative reviews as well with people saying it just doesn’t work.

thumbs down

I’m not saying it wont work for you or you will get side effects from it BUT if you have sensitive skin or have had a reaction to other creams then I definitely wouldn’t recommend using these products.

Thankfully, a week after I stopped using Rodan + Fields products the acne was gone and so was my $190 that it cost me for the product 🙁

Rodan + Fields Alternatives: This Is Working For Me And It’s Cheaper!

Although I was very disappointed with not getting ANY results and having a bad experience from Rodan and Fields Reverse, I still needed something to try and revive my skin.

I think you’ll agree, ageing sucks!

But I did find something that is working wonders for me and strangely enough I have my experience from Rodan + Fields reverse regimen to thank for it.

I actually found this while I was searching for Rodan and Fields reviews…

This is a little funny and alarming at the same time, because it was actually one of their consultants turned unhappy customer who said she had tried the Reverse regimen for 2 whole courses and had absolutely NO results what so ever. 

Not the best info you want to hear from one of their own consultants, but she did recommend an alternative.

She also had sensitive skin like me but what caught my attention was the fact that she mentioned that she started seeing results in the first 2 weeks of using it.

After reading review about the alternative and doing some research to see if anyone had any bad side effects from it I decided to give it a go myself.

Luckily I did because it’s working and I love it!! It’s called Revitol anti-aging 🙂

Revitol Is Working!

You may have already heard of Revitol or seen it in stores, I wish I had of a long time ago because I would have started using this earlier.

Revitol is an anti-ageing cream unlike any other. The main ingredient is RITAPRO 165, which helps moisturise each skin cell strengthen elasticity, firming skin and dramatically reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

I purchased the anti aging cream and it was sooo much cheaper than Rodan + Fields reverse regimen. For a jar it’s only $34.99 via their website here.

The cream releases moisture steadily while you sleep and gives your skin vital anti-oxidants at the same time.

The other active ingredient is MATRIXYL, Researchers found that Matrixyl can nearly DOUBLE the amount of protein collagen needed to give skin the proper elasticity.

While these ingredients might sound a little bizarre, they are definitely safe and after reading through review after review there was no known side effects.

I was surprised at how quick Revitol started working. As I mentioned, I was using Rodan and Fields Reverse creams for 30 days without any results what so ever (only a breakout in acne).

But with Revitol, I started seeing noticeable results in the first 2 weeks. I’ve been using Revitol for just under 60 days now and I’m so impressed I’ve just ordered a second course, this time I ordered 2 to get 1 free.

The discoloration in parts of my skin are starting to disappear and it’s working wonders for all my lines and wrinkles. I’ve seen a big improvement around my eyes and my laugh lines are almost gone!

I really think this day night cream is working wonders – almost like botox.

Conclusion: Rodan and Fields Not For Everyone, But There Is Hope..

In a way, I kind of feel like it was a blessing in disguise, if I hadn’t of had an acne breakout from Reverse I probably wouldn’t have found Revitol.

Would I recommend Rodan and Field products? Again, not for people with sensitive skin. It may work for some but it didn’t do anything for me 🙁

You can read other peoples reviews on this page, there’s a few people who had the same reaction I did.

Which ever you choose, I hope it works out for you and you unlock the fountain of youth. I feel like I have 🙂

  1. Rodan and Field products are terrible in my opinion, never seen any results and that’s after spending over $500 trying it for months..No results at all! Anna, are you still using the Revitol? I’ve heard good things about it but after spending so much money on R&F I’m very hesitant as you could imagine.

    • Hi Pam.
      Yes, still using and loving it! My sister started using it yesterday haha, she’s 2 years older than I am but hasn’t had the exposure to the sun like me. Try a single tub first, but I’m pretty sure you’ll love it. I’ve noticed a big difference so far.

      • Thank you Anna, I ordered a container of Revitol. Will see how it goes.

  2. I had the exact same reaction – face full of acne! I never really got acne till using rodan and fields. Not impressed 🙁

    • Ohh no, sorry to hear. It took a while for my breakout to go away. Hope yours clears up fast!
      I’m still using these revitol products and it’s working for me. Good luck.
      Anna xx
