Will Active Hydration Body Replenish work if I live in a dry climate?

Yes, those in a dry climate will see and feel the immediate benefits of ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish.  Regardless of the climate, the 3D3P Molecular Matrix draws and locks in moisture from the atmosphere, forming a water reservoir on the skin’s surface, allowing it to take in hydration as needed.  If fact, we tested the 3D3P technology in the desert of Las Vegas during R+F Convention 2016 on more than 4200 people of different ages, ethnicities and with varying skin concerns. Even in those extreme conditions, 96% of them saw an immediate increase in their moisture level.

Do I need Active Hydration Body Replenish if I live in a humid climate?

Living in a humid climate does not mean that your skin is hydrated.  Active Hydration Body Replenish was formulated to work with all skin types regardless of climate with the right kind and right level of oil-free hydration.  R+F’s proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix draws and locks in moisture from the atmosphere, forming a water reservoir on the skin’s surface, allowing it to take in hydration as needed.  Skin will feel and look smoother, softer and more radiant, and not greasy or oily.

Why is Hydration important to my skin?

Proper hydration should be the cornerstone of any skincare routine.  One of the culprits of aging skin is dryness.  Whether you experience dryness due to hormonal changes, the environment or age, it can make skin look older.  In fact, research shows that dry skin actually behaves like older skin.  As the outer surface becomes dry, cell turnover reduces which results in skin that is more prone to sensitivity, lines and wrinkles, and is less receptive to skincare products.  As skin ages, it requires more hydration to perform optimally, and can become more difficult for skin to take in hydration or other skincare ingredients.

How does it fit into the Rodan+Fields philosophy?

Multi-Med Therapy is based on delivering the right ingredients, in the right formulations, in the right order to deliver visibly transformative results.  ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish was formulated with proprietary technology to pull and hold water onto the skin, natural moisturizers and conditioners to lock it in and further help skin in challenging environmental conditions and peptides to help smooth lines and texture for younger-looking skin.  When used with your other R+F products such as Micro-Dermabrasion Paste, it enhances your Multi-Med Therapy experience.

How do I know if I should use ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish?

Whether on your face or body, your skin experiences daily challenges from external assault such as extreme weather, UV exposure, indoor heating and air conditioning, and pollution.  And as you age, skin gets dry and dehydrated at a more rapid rate since cell turnover slows down, which causes dead skin cells to build up, making skin look and feel older.  Use ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish daily to reduce dull-looking skin in the winter, or dry and flaky skin in the summer.  Notice the immediate difference after just one use.

Why should I purchase this product (versus others)?

Active Hydration Body Replenish is not like any other product. This formula includes 3D3P Molecular Matrix – our proprietary, one-of-a-kind structure – invented in our R+F lab.  We created a new molecule to address hydration in a different way, binding Glycerin to Hyaluronic Acid and attracting hydration to the skin throughout the day as needed.  Our technology allows us to deliver a high dose of 30% Glycerin versus other formulas that only contain 1-3%, making this body cream more effective.

Can you use ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish on your face?

No.  Although the same unique 3D3P Molecular Matrix found in two of our top selling products Active Hydration Serum and Bright Eye Complex is found in Active Hydration Body Replenish, Body Replenish was designed specifically for the skin on the body, which has unique needs.  Because of slower cell turnover, skin on the body skin is even more prone to dryness, dullness and rough patches than your complexion.

 

What is the technology in Active Hydration Body Replenish?

Active Hydration Body Replenish is powered by Rodan + Field’s proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix that draws in moisture from the atmosphere and locks it onto your skin.  Active Hydration Body Replenish adjusts to your skin’s needs, delivering hydration to areas that need it most, resulting in younger-looking, younger-acting skin that continues to look healthier over time.

When can I expect to see results from Active Hydration Body Replenish?

By using Active Hydration Body Replenish you can expect to immediately experience softer, smoother-looking skin that stays hydrated all day.  In a one-week consumer study, 90% of participants reported that their skin felt instantly softer after using Active Hydration Body Replenish and 89% reported that their skin felt immediately nourished.*

*Based on a one-week U.S. consumer study. Results may vary depending on multiple factors: age, gender, skin type and condition, concomitant products used, health history, location, lifestyle and diet. 

What results should I expect with Active Hydration Body Replenish?

With daily usage, you skin will feel softer, smoother, more nourished and hydrated.  In fact, a clinical study revealed that Active Hydration Body Replenish more than doubles your skin’s hydration level in just 4 weeks.*

Additionally, the study found that after four weeks:

  • 100% of participants had improvement in overall healthy skin appearance
  • 97% of participants had improvement in skin radiance
  • 94% of participants had improvement in the look of crepiness

*Based on a four-week U.S. clinical and consumer study. Results may vary depending on multiple factors: age, gender, skin type and condition, concomitant products used, health history, location, lifestyle and diet. 

How did ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish address skin dryness in a new way?

Powerful water magnets quench dryness by adding hydration to the skin’s surface.  The best ingredient to achieve this is Glycerin.  Unfortunately, Glycerin is sticky by nature so most formulas contain only 1-3% Glycerin, making them less effective.  Our Research and Development team created a new molecule to deliver 30% Glycerin in lightweight formula.  Using Active Hydration Body Replenish daily will help skin look softer, smoother, younger, more nourished and radiant.

Why did Rodan+Fields develop ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Replenishment?

Our Doctors recognize that besides sunscreen the next priority for getting and keeping great skin is daily hydration — but the right kind of hydration.  As an answer to dry and aging skin on the body, Rodan + Fields Research and Development team developed ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish.

Assaults to skin include:  Natural aging, hormonal changes, environmental challenges in winter, in summer, when using a sauna, swimming in a pool, playing sports, sweating (salt), or exposure to sun and/or wind with very little protection.  Skin becomes dry, dull, and rough from extreme weather conditions, indoor heating and air conditioning, and pollution. Natural aging processes slows cell turnover, dead skin cells build-up making skin look and act older.

This unique light-weight cream delivers an immediate increase in hydration the first time you apply it and delivers continuous hydration throughout the day. The additional benefits of Jojoba, Coconut Oil, and Shea Butter help lock in hydration while conditioning the skin for lasting benefits over time.

What is Active Hydration Body Replenish?

ENHANCEMENTS Active Hydration Body Replenish is a fast-absorbing, ultra-hydrating daily body cream.  Unlike traditional body products, Active Hydration Body Replenish features R+F’s proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix, which continuously draws moisture from the atmosphere and locks it onto your skin, restoring skin to its optimal hydration level.  Additionally, Active Hydration Body Replenish adjusts to your skin’s needs – delivering hydration to areas that need it most — leaving skin feeling softer, smoother, more nourished and hydrated all day.

Is Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex safe for contact wearers?

Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex has been tested by ophthalmologists and found to be safe for use around the eye and while wearing contacts.

How do I use Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex with REDEFINE ACUTE CARE?

Use Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex in the morning and evening when you are not using the ACUTE CARE patches. On the evenings that you use the REDEFINE ACUTE CARE patches remember that your skin must be completely clean and dry before applying it. There cannot be any leave-on products underneath the ACUTE CARE, including Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex.

Can I use Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex if I’m pregnant or nursing?

We recommend that a woman who is pregnant or nursing consult with her doctor about her current products and/or the use of cosmetic tools, or before making any changes regarding her skincare routine. Providing the U.S. ingredient list or Canada ingredient list will help inform the doctor.

Is one eye product better than the other?

Neither eye product is better than the other—the product you choose should be based on what’s best for your individual skincare needs. To find out which eye product is best for you or your Customer, visit the Rodan + Fields U.S. Solution Tool or Canada Solution Tool.

What if I have multiple eye area concerns? Can I use both Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex and REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream products?

Yes, if you have multiple eye area concerns, for example, both dark circles and crow’s feet, you can incorporate REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream and Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex into your skincare routine.

Anyone concerned with both aging and stressed eyes can use both products. Either apply Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex in the morning and REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream at night, or apply Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex and follow with a layer of REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream.

How do I use Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex with Active Hydration Serum?

Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex is specifically formulated to help with the appearance of dark circles and puffiness around the eye area while Active Hydration Serum is formulated for the rest of your face. If you use both products on their specified areas, you can maximize the benefits of R+F’s proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix technology.

To use the products together, after cleansing and toning (or after Step 1 of the SOOTHE Regimen) apply Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex as directed beneath the eyes over the orbital bone ridge on the lower lid and towards the eye but staying away from the lashes. Next, apply Active Hydration Serum over the face and onto the orbital bone. Follow with the remaining steps of your Regimen.

Why isn’t Australia getting Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex?

R+F is thrilled to have launched into the Australian market in September 2017. We are focused on extending our brand DNA and business into this new market with our Multi-Step Science skincare philosophy and focusing on our core Regimens.

Further innovation, including the new AMP MD System and Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex, will be introduced at a later time.

Why is it important to use an eye product?

Your eyes are the first place to show stress and fatigue. This is because the delicate area around the eye is the thinnest skin on your face and lacks sebaceous glands that protect this skin. The more fragile, dehydrated and thinner this skin is, the more it shows signs of tiredness since it is under constant exertion and exposure to the elements.
Dark circles, puffiness and ‘tired eyes’ inspired us to answer those needs with Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex.

Who should use Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex?

Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex is suitable for all skin types. This product is especially powerful for those with under-eye dark circles, puffiness, general dullness or dryness.

What is the difference between Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex and REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream?

Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex and REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream feature different key ingredients and are specially formulated to address different eye area concerns.

  • Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex targets the visible signs of stress and fatigue around the eyes, including the appearance of dark under-eye circles and puffiness. The product features R+F’s proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix, phytonutrients, caffeine and illuminating brighteners.
  • REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream targets the visible signs of aging around the eyes, including the appearance of crow’s feet and fine lines. The formula features powerful Peptides, enriching moisturizers and optical brighteners.

How do I know which product (REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream or Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex) to use or recommend to my customer?

Just like choosing a Rodan + Fields Regimen, choosing an eye product should be based on each individual’s skincare concerns.

  • Customers most concerned with signs of aging around the eyes, including the appearance of crow’s feet and under-eye firmness, should choose REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream.
  • Those most concerned with signs of stress and fatigue around the eyes, including the appearance of dark circles and puffiness, should opt for Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex.
  • Anyone concerned with both aging and stressed eyes can use both products. Either Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex in the morning and REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream at night, or you can first apply Bright Eye Complex followed by a layer of Multi-Function Eye Cream.

How do I use Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex?

Use morning and night for maximum benefits. In the morning, after cleansing and toning the skin, gently apply a tear-drop sized amount of Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex to the under-eye area and allow product to dry prior to applying any additional products.
At night, remove makeup, cleanse and tone the skin then apply Active Hydration Bright eye Complex onto dry skin. Allow it to dry prior to applying any additional products. You may use alone or layer REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream under the eye and over crow’s feet to additionally address the appearance of lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness.

How does Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex work?

Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex utilizes R+F’s powerful 3D3P Molecular Matrix to help your delicate under-eye skin reach its optimal hydration level, visibly decreasing the look of dark under-eye circles and dryness. The hydrating power of the 3D3P Molecular Matrix also makes the under-eye skin more receptive to other ingredients, so we supercharged the formula with caffeine, phytonutrients and illuminating brighteners to visibly reduce puffiness and improve under-eye radiance.

When do I apply Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex if using it with my R+F Regimen?

After cleansing and toning your face, use your ring finger to gently apply a small amount of Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex to the eye area in the morning and evening. Stay away from lashes and do not apply to the upper eyelid. Allow to dry, then follow with your remaining Regimen products.

When used with the AMP MD Derma-Roller, cleanse, tone, use the AMP MD Derma-Roller, then apply Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex as directed. Follow with the remaining products in your skincare routine.

What are the results of using Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex?

Consumer participants reported noticeable improvements in just two weeks with even better results after four weeks.
After just four weeks of using Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex, consumer participants reported overall improvement in the appearance of:

  • 93% brightness of the eye area
  • 87% dark under-eye circles
  • 91% under-eye puffiness
  • 82% under-eye hydration

*Based on a 4-week U.S. consumer study. Results may vary depending on multiples factors: age, gender, skin type and condition, concomitant products used, health history, location, lifestyle and diet.

Why do I need a separate product for the eye area? Can’t I just use my Regimen or Active Hydration Serum around my eyes?

The skin around the eyes is the thinnest on the face and surrounds the fragile eye itself. Every eye area product needs to be tested and approved specifically by an ophthalmologist prior to usage for safety. Every Rodan + Fields eye product receives extensive testing to this end.

Other products, though safe and effective to be used where intended, are usually not tested to be used near the eye. At Rodan + Fields, safety and efficacy as well as customer satisfaction are our priorities when it comes to our products.

What is Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex?

Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex is a lightweight gel-cream formulated to visibly improve the dark circles, puffiness and general dullness associated with tired eyes. Bright Eye Complex delivers targeted hydration to the fragile under-eye area via R+F’s proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix which, combined with caffeine and nourishing phytonutrients, leaves eyes looking rested and refreshed.

Why did R+F create Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex?

The thin, fragile skin around the eyes is more likely to be the first place to show signs of stress and fatigue. These signs often appear as dark circles, puffiness and/or dullness, which usually coincide with dehydrated skin. To address them, we created Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex using 3D3P Molecular Matrix and brightening illuminators to properly hydrate the eye area, diffuse discoloration and minimize puffy-looking skin. As a result, you will see a more radiant and a refreshed eye area.

Do I need R+F Active Hydration Serum if I am using another R+F moisturizer (e.g., REDEFINE Triple Defense Treatment, REDEFINE Overnight Restorative Cream or SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment)?

Hydration and moisturization address dryness in different way. Hydration adds water to the skin, while moisturization does not actually add water to the skin, but rather forms an occlusive barrier on top of the skin to seal in the moisture that is already there. R+F Active Hydration Serum and its 3D3P Molecular Matrix add continuous hydration to the skin. It has been clinically tested to work synergistically with all R+F Regimens to boost results.

Can you substitute Active Hydration Serum for Night Renewing Serum when using the AMP MD Derma-Roller?

No. Active Hydration Serum and Night Renewing Serum have different benefits. The REDEFINE AMP MD Derma-Roller has been clinically tested and patented with the Night Renewing Serum to firm the appearance of the skin. Active Hydration Serum can be used in addition to Night Renewing Serum to amplify the effects, however, it should not be used to replace Night Renewing Serum.

The great news is that they can be used together to amplify effects. Just apply Active Hydration Serum after rolling with the REDEFINE AMP MD and before the REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum.

Can I use Active Hydration Serum with my AMP MD and Night Renewing Serum?

Yes. Active Hydration Serum is safe for use with REDEFINE AMP MD and REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum. In fact, Active Hydration Serum helps prime skin and can amplify the effects of product layered on top of it. When used together you are able to maximize the anti-aging benefits of your Regimen. To incorporate with AMP MD Derma-Roller and Night Renewing Serum use the following steps: 1) Cleanse and tone skin; 2) Roll with AMP MD Derma-Roller; 3) Layer Active Hydration Serum; 4) Apply Night Renewing Serum; and 5) Continue with Step 3 or the remaining products in your routine.

Can I use Active Hydration Serum with my AMP MD?

Yes. Active Hydration Serum is safe for use with REDEFINE AMP MD. In fact, Active Hydration Serum helps prime skin and can amplify the effects of product layered on top of it. When used together you are able to maximize the anti-aging benefits of your Regimen. To incorporate Active Hydration Serum with the AMP MD Derma-Roller in your nightly routine use the following steps: 1) Cleanse and tone skin; 2) Roll with AMP MD Derma-Roller; 3) Layer Active Hydration Serum; and 4) Continue with Step 3 or the remaining products in your routine.

How do I open the Active Hydration Serum bottle?

Twist cap counter-clockwise to unlock, then remove cap from bottle. Serum will automatically pull into the dropper. Push the button on the top of the cap to expel dropper contents into the palm of your hand. Apply product all over face and immediately follow with the next step in your Rodan + Fields Regimen.

To close the bottle twist the cap clockwise until the button on top pulls down flush with the top in the lock position.

How do I use Active Hydration Serum?

Apply nightly after cleansing and toning. Apply product all over face, and immediately follow with the next step in your Rodan + Fields Regimen (Step 3 for REDEFINE, REVERSE and UNBLEMISH; Step 2 for SOOTHE). Product works best when layered with your Regimen or under a moisturizer/treatment product. May be used twice daily as needed. May be used with AMP MD™ and Night Renewing Serum (apply after AMP MD and before Night Renewing Serum). Do not use on eyelids.

For best results, start with nightly use and adjust dosage based on your skins needs. We recommend nightly use if you have oily or combination skin, however Active Hydration Serum may be used twice daily (morning and evening) if you have dry skin.

Will Active Hydration Serum work if I live in a dry climate?

Yes, those in dry climate will see and feel the immediate benefits of Active Hydration Serum. Active Hydration Serum was formulated to work with all skin types regardless of climate. Regardless of the climate outside, the 3D3P Molecular Matrix draws and locks in moisture from the atmosphere, forming a water reservoir on the skin’s surface, allowing it to take in hydration as needed. If fact, we tested Active Hydration Serum in the desert of Las Vegas during R+F Convention 2016 on more than 4200 people of different ages, ethnicities and with varying skin concerns. Even in those extreme conditions, 96% of them saw an immediate increase in their moisture level.

Do I need Active Hydration Serum if I live in a humid climate?

Living in a humid climate does not mean that your skin in hydrated. Active Hydration Serum was formulated to work with all skin types regardless of climate with the right kind and right level of oil-free hydration. R+F’s proprietary 3D3P Molecular Matrix draws and locks in moisture from the atmosphere, forming a water reservoir on the skin’s surface, allowing it to take in hydration as needed. Skin will be smoother, softer and more radiant-looking, and not greasy or oily.

Do I need Active Hydration Serum if I have oily skin?

Those with oily skin are often hesitant to apply hydrating or moisturizing products for fear of creating additional oil. However, hydration and oil are two very different things. Hydration adds water to your skin to reduce dehydration, while oil sits on top of the skin. And even though there may be no visible signs, oily skin can often be dry underneath causing it to produce more oil.

Everyone can benefit from additional hydration to perform optimally, regardless of your skin type. The trick is to find the right kind. Active Hydration Serum is perfect for all skin types because it self-adjusts to what your skin needs to help it reach its optimal hydration level and maintain it. Active Hydration Serum is oil-free, so it will leave skin feeling smooth, soft and radiant, and not oily or greasy.

In fact, Active Hydration Serum can help balance oil. The 3D3P Molecular Matrix has been specially formulated to ensure that sebum (oil) does not accumulate on the surface of skin. For those with oily skin, we recommend nightly use to help give your skin the hydration it needs.

Can Active Hydration Serum be used on sensitive skin?

Yes. Not only is Active Hydration Serum safe for use on sensitive skin, our clinical testing demonstrates that participants with sensitive skin noticed an improvement in skin comfort after using Active Hydration Serum for 8 weeks. When used with the SOOTHE Regimen, participants experienced smoother, softer, more radiant-looking skin plus a visible improvement in firmness and a reduction of fine lines and pores. To incorporate Active Hydration Serum with the SOOTHE Regimen, use after the SOOTHE Gentle Cream Wash and before the SOOTH Sensitive Skin Treatment, then continue to layer the remaining products in the SOOTHE Regimen.

What is a serum?

A serum is a lightweight skincare product that delivers higher concentrations of powerful ingredients to address a specific skin concern. Although there are many different types of serums on the market, each individual serum tends to address a specific concern for a more intensive effect. Serums are meant to work synergistically with your other skincare products, and are to be layered underneath moisturizers or other skin conditioning products for additional and/or better results.
