I Tried Rodan + Fields's New "Reverse" Regimen, and My Skin Is Noticeably Brighter

Jessica Harrington

On my list of skin-care goals, brightening is always number one. While I'm pretty diligent with my routine now, I wasn't always the best with my sun protection. I rarely wore sunscreen on my face because I liked to tan (I still do, but I know better and rely on fake tanning options now). Those bad sun habits, combined with a period of hormonal acne in my early 20s, left me with some discoloration and acne marks on my face that I'm still trying to fade. Luckily, I was able to get my hands on the newly reformulated Rodan + Fields Reverse Regimen early, which is intended to correct all that.

The new three-step regimen is formulated to address dark spots from aging, blemishes, and the environment, like sun exposure. It features an exfoliating cleanser, toner, SPF 50 face lotion, and a nighttime correcting treatment. The products are infused with powerful brightening ingredients, like 10 percent vitamin C to address dullness and niacinamide to protect against future damage caused by environmental aggressors. The PM treatment in the line also contains retinol and kojic acid to increase cellular turnover and smooth skin's tone.
