My Honest Review Of Rodan + Fields SOOTHE Regimen Skincare
Thank you to Rodan + Fields for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Rodan + Fields launched their SOOTHE Regimen, which is a 4-step skincare routine that is specifically designed for sensitive, red, dry, irritated skin and uncomfortable skin. The goal is to calm those issues and refresh your skin for a better night’s rest.
The line is formulated to improve dry and irritated skin by replenishing moisture. The ingredients used are soothing, like colloidal oatmeal and proprietary RFp2 Peptides, or seven essential ceramides that work to strengthen the moisture-barrier and also help address visible flare-ups for clearer skin.
I have been suffering with severely dry skin that causes me to scratch at it like crazy. It’s extremely uncomfortable, but also it has caused it to be very sensitive to many products that had previously worked for my skin.
Rodan + Fields sent me their SOOTHE Regimen since it is formulated to help with these issues for my honest review.
It’s important to me to find products that are sulfate-free. These are soap-free, fragrance-free, non-comedogenic and also dermatologist tested.
My Review Of The 4-Step Soothe Regimen for Sensitive Skin –
Step 1: SOOTHE Calming Gel Cleanser
My First Thoughts: It’s a non-foaming cleanser and I like that it does not have a strong scent. It was very gentle, but it was able to remove my makeup well. The formula is rich and it feels calming while applying. My skin felt notably softer after using the cleanser.
Product Info: The cleanser is formulated to cleanse skin without stripping the skin’s barrier which helps to calm and alleviate any discomfort. Made with glycerin to strengthen skin’s moisture barrier without disrupting pH. Also made with Bisabolol to calm dry skin and reduce redness.
Price: $45. You can find the SOOTHE Calming Gel Cleanser HERE.
Step 2: SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment
My First Thoughts: After starting this lotion, I noticed a difference in my skin’s visible redness. It really helped protect my skin against the dry weather. When applying I’d also feel a soothing relief against the itchiness I was experiencing.
Product Info: Protects against after exposure to UV, pollution & everyday stressors. The skin treatment is derived from Cherimoya fruit extract, Allantoin (OTC 0.5%), Dimethicone (OTC 2%), Dual-Licorice Technology, Proprietary RFp2 Peptide Complex.
Price: $90. You can find the SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment HERE.
Step 3: SOOTHE Moisturizing Rescue Cream
My First Thoughts: This was like a big “drink of water” for my skin… extra hydrating! With my extreme dry skin this was my favorite product from the line. It’s a cream product that is very rich and nourishing. It goes on very smoothly. Other rich, creamy hydrators I tried didn’t wear well under makeup. I was impressed that this was very smooth and wore well under my normal makeup routine.
Product Info: Seals in hydration and defends against sensitivity, environmental aggressors + irritants. Works to temporarily relieve itching, blotchiness, etc. Clinically tested on sensitive skin. Fragrance free + non- comedogenic. Made with 7 Essential Ceramides and Colloidal Oatmeal (1% OTC ).
Price: $60. You can find the SOOTHE Moisturizing Rescue Cream HERE.
Step 4: Daily Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30
My First Thoughts: I firmly believe the best thing you can do for your skin is adamantly wear SPF EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Cloudy day = sunscreen and a sunny day = sunscreen. I started this practice two years ago and have stuck to it ever since.
This was a very lightweight formula which makes it great for daily use. I can wear this in combination with my other skincare products and makeup without getting clogged pores or irritated skin. It’s totally fragrance free. It feels calming while applying.
Product Info: Protects skin from UVA/UVB rays and everyday environmental aggressors. Non- comedogenic and clinically tested on sensitive skin. Made from 100% Mineral- Based Sunscreen Actives, Artichoke Leaf Extract and patented RF3 Antioxidant Complex.
Price: $40. You can find Daily Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 HERE.

OVERALL THOUGHTS & OPINIONS:
I was very impressed with the way that it was able to calm my dry and irritated skin. After trying a variety of other products, I’ve never felt the kind of relief that I felt from the SOOTHE Regimen. At night, I have not been waking up due to uncomfortably itchy skin. That has been the biggest relief of all! The products are totally fragrance-free. My favorite product of the collection is the moisturizer because of it’s deep hydration.
Just wanted to note that I did still use other skincare products for different concerns in addition to this 4-step regimen.
After trying these products for review, I will continue to implement them into my skincare routine in addition to a few of my other tried and true favorites.
