More than you wanted to see & a giveaway!

I've mentioned once or several times on this blog that all during high school and college I used Proactiv face cleanser.

I may or may not have started using it because my BFF Britney Spears was one of their spokespersons during my high school-I-LOVE-BRITNEY-SPEAR- FOR-LIFE days. But no matter what my reasoning was, it cleared my face up like nothing else ever could, even cream I had gotten from a dermatologist.

And then Megan graduated college, got out from under daddy and mommy and Proactiv wasn't in the budget.

Sadly, my face paid for my lack of money. While it wasn't as broken out as it was before, it still had moments where it looked pretty bad. And then I went through pregnancy and nursing and my hormones were all "LIKE WHOA" and I desperately needed something to get it under control.

I tried using various brands of face wash but nothing seemed to be working. My face had seriously not been this broken out since high school. I was a 28 year old woman dealing with acne!! Seriously??

Then my mom told me about Rodan + Fields. A skincare line that was created by the same women who created  Proactiv. This line is geared more for adults and our adult "face problems" and she thought I should use some to help get control of my face. It seemed like facial wash fate.

I started using the Unblemish system and started to see a result almost immediately. It came with a chart that told me how much to use it at first to introduce my face to it, I followed the plan and never had a problem with the system at all.

Now I'm about to do something I never thought I would do but I'm about to show you TWO pictures of me with no makeup looking like a scrub - but you can totally tell a difference in my face since I started using Unblemish.

OK deep breathes, here I go:


HOTTTTTT I know. 

I feel so much better about my face. My breakouts that I would get have gone away completely and I feel like my face is so much more smooth and even. Before Rodan + Fields I always wore foundation and powder, now I feel ok just wearing powder. It has made a huge difference.

My mom uses the Reverse system and I have noticed a big difference in her face. She might kill me for showing her picture but she shouldn't have sent it to me, I think the difference is too noticeable to not show!!


Reverse has helped my mom to get rid of sun damage and dark spots. I think she looks so great!

And after looking at these pics I think we have the same eyes. I've never noticed that before. 

My mom recently started selling Rodan + Fields and has a website you can check out if you are looking for clinically proven skin care directed to treat your most common skin concerns:

Anti Age
Reverse
Unblemish
Soothe

It is pretty amazing stuff!

And I also have a R+F giveaway!! I have THREE Rodan + Fields mini facials to giveaway! THe way to enter to win the mini facial is to comment below and let me know which system you think you would most like to try. I will choose the winners of the mini facial later this week!

If you have any interest in trying Rodan+Fields check out the website or email me and I can connect you with my mom!!

I don't know what's worse? That I showed pics of my face with no makeup or that I admitted that I love Britney Spears FOR LIFE?

  4. WHOA. That's some changes! You both look great.

    I've always had problem skin. Always. Pro Activ always dried me out way bad. Like peeling skin dried out. But maybe because I was an adult when I used it.

    Does your Mom ship internationally??

  9. Wow! You both look great before but the after is awesome!! I definitely need anti age. Poor me. I think having a child has already added wrinkles in three short months! ;)

  10. I would say the unblemish or anti age. I've heard a lot of good things about this program!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I've heard the anti age is great but I'm like you 28 and having these teenage breakouts! I'd probably start trying the unblemish.

    ReplyDelete
  12. You both look great, and I'm definitely going to look into these products! :)

  13. I would definitely love to try the reverse system. Too much sun when I was a kind combined with hitting my 30's? Yeah, I need help!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Glad you found something that works! Your skin looks great. I would love to try the anti age. Skincare products are always something I never think to buy other than a moisturizer. My 32 year old skin needs some help!

  15. Megan, you have a great skin! I bet it is from all those years of taking such good care of it! Like I said on Twitter the other day my MIL started selling this stuff in June & I was so nervous she was part of some weird pyramid scheme. Luckily, she isn't & she loves the products. I've loved what she's given me so far too! The lip balm is to die for, fyi! Thanks for sharing!

  16. I'd love to thy the soothe. It sounds like a great product!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh wow your mom's pictures are amazing!! I haven't heard of these products before but now I am very interested. I think I would be most interested in Reverse. Anti Age too, but I think I would start with Reverse. I'm off to do some research :)

    ReplyDelete

  21. I am 28 and had horrible, awful acne as a teenager. So bad, that i had to go on Accutane. It worked, but I still have some scarring. I would live to try the unblemish!

  26. I'd love to try the reverse! Your mom looks great! I just turned 31 yesterday and sadly, I have wrinkles. Why, oh why did 18--year-old me think that I HAD to have a super dark tan?? I'm definitely paying for it now!

    Love me some Brit-Brit for life, too!

  27. I am desperate! Pregnancy has been killer on my skin. I need the unblemish

  28. I'd love the unblemish one or the soothe one! I can tell my skin is getting older and needs more attention!

  31. Ooooh wow! The reverse system is definitely what I'd love to try. I have a 2 month old and pregnancy seemed to keep my breakouts at bay (maybe I'm in for it soon though?!), but I have some dark spots I'd love to kick to the curb. I'd love to tell my 18 yr old self...YOU DON'T NEED TO BE TAN!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I took the quiz and would love to try the Soothe!

    I have a dermatologist appointment for the first time in my life, who gets bad skin for the first time when they are 30?!?

    ReplyDelete
  36. I would love to try the unblemish system. I have been looking at R&F products for a while but never knew where to begin. Your skin looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is awesome! I used to use Proactive too but like you, decided I didn't want to pay for it :)

    I currently use Mary Kay Timewise, but I'm not totally sold. I would love the anti-age one!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would love to try unblemish! I use proactiv right now and have been since I was 17. Ready to try something new!!

  41. I would like to try Anti-Age or Unblemish. I am nursing and my hormones are all over the place, so my skin is bad again.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I could love to try the Unblemish system. I have fought with blemishes into adulthood too. I'm 28. Thought I'd be done with dealing with that by now. :( thanks for this giveaway!!

  43. You both have had amazing results! I used Proactive for about a year and my face never looked better... but I'm prone to excema and for some reason it would cause me to break out with excema on my eye, so I had to stop. I wonder if this would have the same effect? I would definitely love to try the Unblemish system!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I would like to try the Unblemish system. I am 27 and still break out like I did when I was 13. I have found products that keep it somewhat under control now but I still a lot of bad days. :(

    ReplyDelete
  45. Sadly, at 30, I need to try the unblemish. Why am I still getting zits?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Amazing! And you're beautiful no matter what! Baby 2 sent my skin back to Jr high...actually, I was very blessed with great skin until kids. So...they all sound awesome, but as I battling another round of monster zits right now, probably the unblemish.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would love to try Unblemish. Your pics look great!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm so glad you blogged about this. I just bought some super expensive stuff and its only enough for 14 uses!! I think all of them could help my skin in some way so it's hard to decide, but Reverse was the first one I gravitated towards.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I would like to try the Unblemish

    ReplyDelete
  50. Probably Reverse because I'm completely paranoid about wrinkles, sun damage and such.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Is it sad I've never heard of these products?!? Love the results. In my early thirties and would have a tie between anti age and reverse. :-)

  52. I would love to try REVERSE for my pushing 40 skin! ;)
