This is a very expensive way to use salt and sugar to exfoliate skin. Salt can be too abrasive and irritating as a facial scrub, though in this formula it is buffered by silicone and emollients. Although this is an option for dry skin not prone to sensitivity, mixing cornmeal with your cleanser or simply using a washcloth would work just as well and cost significantly less than this way-overpriced paste-like scrub.

Brand Overview

Rodan + Fields At-A-Glance

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 skincare products. The Rodan + Fields 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.

Most consumers want simplicity when it comes to making decisions about what skincare 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, each routine has at least one questionable or lackluster formulation, or a problem with packaging.
