Reverse Intensive Brightening Toner contains an amount of irritants this contains makes it a problematic product for all skin types. This product contains alcohol, witch hazel and solvents which encourage these irritants to penetrate skin, which only means increased risk for irritation. This ends up being a burn for skin and pocketbook, though it does contain a couple of promising skin-lightening ingredients among the problematic ingredients.

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.
