Rodan + Fields Review

Yes there are some people that worry about a Rodan And Fields Scam. You’re not alone here. I have been scammed before so I have researched this company and found these important facts that will put your mind at ease.
Would it please you to know that the Rodan and Fields skincare company has been in business since 2002? Not only has it been in business for 8 years, it is headed up by 2 Stanford University graduates, Dr. Kathy Fields and Dr. Katie Rodan.
These 2 beautiful and talented medical professionals saw a huge need in the marketplace and perhaps, more importantly, an opportunity to bless the lives of millions of people who suffer from one of the most challenging problems in life, low self-esteem.
So many people never achieve their full potential due to low self esteem.
These 2 doctors really wanted to help people in this area.
There are lots of skincare products on the market but not many can reverse the ill affects of sun damaged skin. This is where Rodan And Fields come into play.
You’d be surprised if you knew how many people throughout the world suffer from sun damaged skin. Rodan And Fields markets a clinically proven product known as “reverse” that can provide tremendous benefits to those in this category.
Are you still concerned about a Rodan And Fields Scam?
Take a look at the following facts.
1. They’ve got a long history in the marketplace and many satisfied customers. The market place is a great judge of quality and customers continue to vote for Rodan and Fields with their dollars.
2. Rodan and Fields belongs to the DSA. This is a prestigious body who sets high standards in the direct sells industry.
3. Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields have chosen to be heavily involved in charitable giving – one of the hallmarks of any great company.
4.The Rodan and Fields direct selling brand is supported by the reputation of two of the most highly regarded leaders in the world of skincare. Their track record as skincare product developers and as opinion leaders in the beauty press are part of the assets that work to support Rodan and Fields Consultants as they introduce others to the benefits of the products, the product-support programs, and the potential lifestyle benefits of the business opportunity.
You can see from the following points that this company truly does bring great value to the market place.

Another website that helped me was Supreme Skin Care and their article 

I want to share a comment from a reader and Supreme Skin Cares response to his comment.

Hi Renee- I have been in sales for 14 years and am considering the Rodan and Fields business opportunity. Here are my concerns:
1. Price is high for today’s economy
2. They don’t have a lot of products. They only have several “sets” of products that they sell as a regimen set.
3. Who are your customers?
4. Who are your Good customers?
5. Who have you gotten involved in the business under you?
6. Have the people you got involved been succesful?
7. (I am assuming you like the products)- But, why do you like the products?
8. What specific results have you seen?
9. How long did it take for you to build your business?
10. How long did it take for the people you got involved to build their business?
11. Has your return on investment been enough to justify all the time and money you have spent on this business and why (whether yes or no)
12. Are the majority of your customers single consumers, or spa/salon owners?
13. How much time a week do you spend on your business?

@ Randi and Bob, Thank you for your interest in Rodan and Fields. All of Randi’s questions are very good questions. I would think it to be odd if one didn’t ask similar questions before getting involved in any business.
So here are my answers. Keep in mind that these are MY answers, the way I see it.
1. Statistically (according to EBay, use Terapeak to verify) skin care will hold up in spite of our economy. If someone stops using skin care, it’s not because of the price, it’s because the products don’t work.
2. Even though skin is a complex issue, why does a product line have to be complex? Use the solution tool and see what it reveals about your skin. R and F uses multi med therapy to address the most common skin conditions presented to dermatologists. When the right products combine in the right order, people see results. Isn’t that what it’s about? Getting results. I’m sure they will add new products as technology improves, but the products need to actually address skin issues.
3. My customers are typically women between the ages of 30 and 65.
4. My good customers are women between the ages of 30 and 65.
5 and 6. My friends and family and their referrals have taken on various roles in the partnership with Rodan and Fields. Some are business partners, some are product users and some are referring sources. Every role is important. R and F is very different then what you may have been exposed to in the past. As far as success, your question is too broad. My idea of success may not be the same as yours. I have set my business to make 6 figures by September 2011. Is that your goal too?
Every consultant must have goals… If you set your goals and achieve them, then you are successful.
7. Yes, I use the product. If you don’t use the product and actually like it, why would you sell it? Well, of course, to make money. There’s lots of products on the market that don’t work AND just as many people who sell stuff that doesn’t work. (Just my opinion)
R and F products have shrunk my crater size pores significantly. It’s cleared up an acne issue that I didn’t know I even had. I thought my monthly flare ups didn’t count. My light brown spots on the right side of my lip have diminished and my deep creases have been reduced tremendously. I go to network meetings and get up close to other women and point out that my swimming pools are gone.
But the long and the short of it is… I was an internet marketer looking for a product to sell online. I didn’t know when I joined, if the products really worked. If they didn’t work , they could join the rest of the products in my bathroom that don’t work. 6 months later, I can’t live without my products. I feel pretty.
I wasn’t avoiding your questions all this time, I just knew I couldn’t answer your questions in one sentence. This blog started out as a method to attract prospects, but will never be as productive as what I can do with a phone, email, facebook, MySpace, chamber meetings and networking events.
8. Has been answered above.
9. I will always be building my business. I want to work hard for 3 to 5 years and then maintain.
10. Some join immediately. Some join after they use the products. This business is not for everyone. Never chase people. It’s either a good fit for them or not. Do you really want to MAKE someone do their job? Or would you rather work with someone who says, “show me the way.”
11. Yes and no. As I’ve said, I’m an internet marketer. So I spend a lot of time on the internet doing things that are not specific to the system of Rodan and Fields. This blog for instance is a huge drain on my time. It is certainly not part of the R and F system, but I felt compelled to at least build the site. Truth be told… I use the two websites from corporate and drive traffic to that.
My husband and I own a commercial programming business that runs on autopilot for the most part and generates residuals. We’ve had that since 1998. We had an interior design store that went under and we lost over $100,000. If you want to be a business owner, you have to grasp the fact that this is a cheap buy in.
12. I don’t pursue salons…
13. I used to work about 10 hours a week. Now I have reworked my hours to 30.

Randi, I have to admit that it feels like you want me to convince you to do this business. Or maybe you feel you should compare yourself to me. In either case, you’re doing yourself an injustice. All you need to ask yourself is… am I coachable. If the answer is yes, you should become a consultant. If you don’t, you may end up “shoulding” on yourself. Why look back in life and say…”I should have joined Rodan and Fields.”
