It's finally spring in New England!

And here are my top picks for spring skincare from Rodan + Fields ...

1. EXFOLIATE rough winter skin (face and body) with our delicious sugar-salt scrub Micro-Dermabrasion Paste. Your skin will feel softer and smoother right away. Use up to three times a week or as needed. 

2. Spring wardrobe changes are in the forecast! Get a safe, sun-kissed glow with our Foaming Sunless Tan. Follow up with our luxurious-feeling Daily Body Moisturizer to lock in that rich, golden glow.

3. Planning to spend a lot of time outside? Protect your skin from sun exposure with Daily Body Sunscreen SPF30. And if you've been using any of our retinol products, a cute hat will offer additional protection.

4. Treat your complexion to Mineral Peptide Powder. With SPF20, it's the perfect finishing touch. Available in three shades (combine light, medium and dark for flawless contouring!)

5. Gift yourself 25% OFF our top selling skin renewal products in our SPRING RENEWAL GIFT SET.

It includes Intensive Renewing Serum with Retinal, our newly formulated Lip Renewing Serum now with moisturizing Macadamia seed oil and a touch of cooling mint, plus everyone's favorite time-reversing product Redefine Multi-Function Eye Cream.

6 Gifts with Special Meaning Sparkle

Black Swan jewels from Swarovski

When you represent a company that
s been given the prestigious title of a “Black Swan” business because of its ability to disrupt an entire industry (think Apple, Google and Amazon), then you can feel pretty confident that you’re on a meaningful career path.

Rodan + Fields skincare – which is now a billion dollar brand and the number one selling skincare in the United States – has been called a Black Swan for years. I love being able to represent this amazing company, which is based solely on a social selling business model, by simply sharing these transformative products with others. 

While R+F treats us to lots of fabulous incentive gifts, there are times when Independent Consultants want to recognize their teams for specific goals that have been achieved. 

My Gift Giving Favorites  

While searching online for gift items that would have special meaning for my own R+F tribe, I came across the Swarovski line of Black Swan jewelry shown above. How perfect!

The Swarovski brand is known for its luxurious gift items that feature crystal cut creations. Along with their Black Swan icon based jewelry, I found a number of other potential gifts that would add a sparkle to any R+F consultants eye ... 

When one of your R+F team members top selling product is Rodan + Fields Lash Boost, this would be a spectacular reward.

When youre on the go, you need to have a place to carry your R+F business cards. How cute is this bedazzled pink bear leather card carrier complete with lush lashes? I think it would be perfect as a new consultant or level advancement gift.

When your team has earned an incentive trip to a sunny destination, a pair of sparkly black Diva shades would be a fabulous way to say Your business is shining bright, girl!

When youre looking for a special gift that’s truly remarkable, the champagne toned Swarovski collection by fashion-designer Jason Wu (who I’ve actually met in person at one of his New York Fashion Week runway shows) has some stunning pieces. Everything he designs is pure gold in my opinion : )  

Rainbow Colored Pavé Butterflies on
Rose Gold Strand from Swarovski

The team I joined when I started my R+F journey over 2 years ago (Team Moxie) has a butterfly as its mascot. These rose gold strand earrings with multi-colored butterflies (in the same colors as our product lines, Soothe, Reverse, Unblemish, and Redefine) totally says R+F team to me. How pretty would they be worn at a gala event during the next Rodan + Fields convention scheduled in New Orleans this coming September? Officially on my wish list! 

Which of these sparkling beauties would you choose for yourself or as a reward gift?
