Redefine Multi-Function Eye Cream claims to do it all, from minimizing wrinkles to reducing dark circles and, of course, puffiness under the eye. The emollient formula is an improvement over the company’s former Anti-Age Multi-Peptide Treatment Eye Cream with Anti-Oxidants, and includes several plant antioxidants typically seen in Lauder products (Lauder used to own Rodan + Fields). However, all the beneficial ingredients this contains won’t last for long once this jar-packaged moisturizer for normal to dry skin is opened. That’s a shame, too; this eye cream is loaded with cell-communicating ingredients and is also fragrance-free.

REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream combines powerful peptides to minimize the appearance of crow’s-feet, helps reduce the appearance of both puffiness and dark under eye circles while special optical diffusers noticeably brighten the eye area.

Many of you are probably familiar with physicians Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields from their appearances on infomercials about their successful ProActiv line of anti-acne skin-care products. The Rodan + Fields supposedly therapeutic approaches are advertised for those suffering from a variety of skin conditions, and are claimed to work for anti-aging, skin discolorations, sensitive skin, and acne.

Lots of consumers believe that dermatologist-developed products will be the answer for their skin-care woes; but, in two words, they aren't. After reviewing dozens of so-called doctor-designed product lines, including this one, we can tell you there are no miracles to be found, and often there are some problematic products to steer clear of. Overall, many of these lines are quite comparable to other product lines without the physician headliner credentials and exorbitant prices. (Shockingly, Rodan + Fields' acne products are virtually identical to their ProActiv products, except that these cost more. We assume they thought no one would notice; perhaps they are right.)

Many consumers want simplicity when it comes to making decisions about what skin-care products they should use. The Rodan + Fields marketing strategy is to make it simple. They eliminate the confusion about what products work together by creating streamlined, prepackaged product groups, each aimed at specific skin-care concerns. Each product group is enclosed in a clever, take-along parcel that is the skin-care equivalent of a sack lunch. (Products are also available separately for those who want to customize their routine or add products outside the predetermined routines.) This structured approach has merit, but, as you will see from the reviews below, each routine has at least one questionable or lackluster formulation, or a problem with packaging. Considering that these are really pricey products, this is not good news.

Rodan + Fields does deserve kudos for being one of the few cosmetics companies to list the ingredients for each product on their Web site. It’s a major help for beleaguered, savvy consumers who care about this detail. Still, it would have been better all around if they offered more thoughtful, less problematic formulas.

    Didn't see any results after 6 months
    • Didn't see any results after 6 months. I felt like it was not very moisturizing. I had to reapply something else after a few hours. I did not notice any improvement in my minor crow's feet. I find that if I have something with a lot of moisture, they almost disappear. This left them there. I loved Proactiv, but find R&F overpriced and not effective.
