The man in your life may never ask directly. But if these Rodan + Fields products were to appear in his medicine cabinet, they wouldn’t go to waste.
How do we know? Because we asked the experts. The men at the Rodan + Fields Home Office enjoy free R+F products as a perk. (All employees do, and it’s awesome.) With access to all of the company’s skincare, we wondered, what do men choose for themselves?
With Father’s Day coming up on June 16, we thought we’d put this list of dude-approved R+F products out there. Just saying.
Regi-MenThere’s never a dull moment at the Home Office, judging from the number of men who use the REVERSE Brightening Regimen for dullness, discoloration and uneven skin tone. “I use REVERSE almost every day,” says Rodan + Fields Chairman Amnon Rodan . “I love how it feels, smells, and that it’s not oily, sticky or greasy. I love that it makes me look young — or, if not that, I love that it makes me glow.”
The REDEFINE Regimen for lines, wrinkles and visible signs of aging is also popular. Field Training Manager Jeff Sinclair is solidly on Team REDEFINE. “It’s the most pampered my skin has ever been!” he says. Customer Care Instructional Designer Nicolas Dionisio recommends REDEFINE “to anyone who wants to look as young as I do 😀.”
Even if they’re not using a full Regimen, the men of the Home Office take their SPF seriously. Compliance Analyst Cody Wilbur uses REDEFINE Triple Defense Treatment Broad Spectrum SPF 30 as his go-to sunscreen, while Brian Saputo, Senior Director of Packaging Development, faithfully applies SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 on his face and the top of his head every day. He appreciates the product’s matte finish: “Not only does it protect from the sun,” he says, “it also helps reduce the bald-head shine.“
Dudes Being Smooth
The micro-exfoliating AMP MD Derma-Roller has a manly cult following. “I probably roll more than I should,” says Gary Deppe, Vice President of Global Field Learning and Development, “but I figure man-skin is tough, and the more the better. In fact, I roll sometimes in the morning, too!” His “Roll Baby Roll” philosophy must be paying off. Since he began using the REDEFINE AMP MD System in November 2018, “I’ve noticed my skin is more firm, especially along the jawline and neck. In fact, I’ve had friends and family who’ve known me forever comment on how good my skin looks.”
REDEFINE Micro-Dermabrasion Paste, our exfoliating face-and-body scrub, is also a fan favorite. Order Management Specialist Dustin Robinson appreciates that he can use it in the shower. (The men in our office definitely demand convenience in their skincare.) Convention Program Manager Josh Goodman says MD Paste is at the top of his current want-to-try list. Facilities Coordinator Randall Vaughan envisions combining the scrub and a classic outdoor water slide for an innovation he would call “Slip and Exfoliate.” Note to Randall: Please do not actually try this.
Active Hydration Body Replenish is another fave. Elite Support Coordinator Enrique Garcia, who works on cars and does outdoor activities in his spare time, uses this award-winning cream on his elbows, knees and knuckles — “pain points when it comes to dry skin, because these are the areas that come in most contact with rough surfaces,” he says.
As for the product universally beloved by the men of the Rodan + Fields Home Office? Well, it turns out there’s a reason why they’re all so radiant.
“I suffer from dry skin,” says David Horton, Senior Director of Architecture, Methods and Tools. But with daily use of Active Hydration Serum, “I’ve noticed much more comfort during the day — less cracking, flaking of my skin, and definitely less tightness.” His skin is less red and irritated, too. “Overall, my complexion has smoothed out,” he says.
You know who couldn’t agree more? The inventor of this ultra-hydrating moisture magnet himself. Active Hydration Serum “instantly hydrates after skiing, being in the sun or simply being,” says Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Tim Falla, who uses it frequently. “My rougher, drier skin needs all the help it can get.”
