I have never been a very high maintenance girl with any sort of crazy beauty regimes. Pre mom life, my morning routine for hair and makeup would take minutes so that I could train as long as possible and still make it to work by 7:30/8 am. Night time was no different (usually because I was tired and just wanted to get to bed). Fast forward to life as a mom and my routines have not gotten any longer - in fact I probably even spend less time now worrying about me as everything is about Z.
Going on 10 months of still not having a full night of sleep, my skin doesn't always look as refreshed as it used to. When an old friend from university reached out and asked if I would try out a skin care product, I was more than happy to give my skin some well deserved pampering. I have tried many different products before with mixed results and often don't notice a huge difference when I try something new, but I was actually very impressed with the results after just one use.
The first product I tried was Rodan + Fields Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste. I had just got in from my long run Sunday morning and thought my skin could use a bit of a treat so I gently massaged the paste onto my face before I jumped into the shower. As I rinsed the paste off, I was pleasantly surprised at how soft my skin felt - as soft as Z's baby skin. I honestly can't remember the last time my skin felt so soft to the touch. It's amazing how a little TLC can elevate your day! All day long I caught myself touching my face, impressed with how soft it felt.
That night I tried out the Redefine Night Renewing Serum. Poor Z had a terrible fever which meant very little sleep for anyone in our house, but surprisingly, my skin still looked refreshed and a littler firmer than the night before. Again, pleasantly surprised after trying it out for just one night. I am definitely going to consider adding these products into my very minimal skin care routine because I am learning that as a mom you often forget about yourself, but a little TLC can make all the difference.
Big thanks to Patricia for letting me try these products! If you are interested in learning more about Rodan & Fields, or looking into either of these products check out phuber1.myrandf.com/ca
