In general, I really like this product and found that it worked well -- in particular the cleanser. I didn't find that the toner was anything special and the treatment can be a bit too drying when all three products were combined (I have picky skin -- oily, but dry and sensitive too.)
I don't particularly need a product to smell good - in fact, I usually find that products with a strong fruity or 'yummy' smell have an adverse effect on my skin; however, the fash wash really is an over-the-top sulfur smell that might bother some.
Unfortunately, the price on both the regimen AND the single products went up greatly as of late and I will be searching for something a little more economical.
I think it's pretty ridiculous to spend $42.00 on a cleanser -- shame on you Rodan + Fields!
Have used for one week. I tend to have cystic acne, one at a time. I noticed a new one on day 2 of using Unblemish. Planning to get a cortisone injection when I could get an appointment, the swelling went down. While my face still feels greasy, I am amazed the cyst got better. Still not sold 100% - packaging is outdated (no flip-tops) and is quite expensive compared to Proactiv which I used to use. Time will tell. UPDATE - after several weeks, my face was worse than ever. My face always felt/looked very greasy and oily. For $80, not impressed.
I'm 45 years old & have battled acne for most of my life. "Proactiv" worked very well, however, I found it to be a bit too trying for me personally. So I decided to give the "Unblemish" line a chance after reading some information about it online. "Unblemish" doesn't leave me with the same dry feeling the "Proactiv" line did. I've had excellent results with the "Unblemish" line & now that I have my acne under control I've begun using the Rodan & Fields "Anti-Aging" line at night in addition to the "Unblemish" regime during the day. So far so good for me with both product lines.
I've been battling acne problems since puberty. This regimen really works for me after trying a gamut of products over the years. (and wasting lots of $$). In addition to following the regimen as outlined by R&F, I use a SPF moisturizer in the morning (Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion, with SPF 15 Multivitamin Facial Treatment With Alpha Hydroxy) and a corrective moisturizer at night (Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle, Anti-Blemish Cream). This combination is the right balance for me without taking prescription drugs. Nordstrom's sells this product, so if you want to just try it out, buy it from them, since they have an extremely generous return policy OR they have a 'travel' kit, at half the price. It did take 2 months for my skin to really equalize, so give it time for your body to adjust to the regimen.
It has been awhile since I used Unblemish and I guess that says it all. It is overpriced and under-delivers. I mean it is OK. I have had acne since my teens and now in my 30's still suffer from clogged pores and hormonal acne. It kept most at bay but was not fantastic. The product smells--not as bad as Murad but not nearly as good as Proactiv. It also has a thicker, creamy consistency which my oily skin does not love. The wash also never left my face feeling clean. I will say it again....NOT WORTH THE EXPENSE!
First of all, my skin is acne prone. I always have a pimple somewhere. I also have blackheads in my T-zone. In winter, my skin gets major surface dehydration, but it's still oily underneath. I have tried so many things in my search for good skin. I was getting fed up and thought why not give the Unblemish line a try. Years ago, I tried Proactiv and should have learned my lesson. That stuff dried the heck out my skin and just made my problem worse, but I thought I was older now (30) and this stuff is supposed to be calming to your skin as well. I stuck with this for a week ( a week too long as it turns out ). It seemed like it was kind of helping but kind of giving me more blemishes at the same time. I should have stopped, but my forehead did look smoother. By the end of the week, I actually had scabs where the blemishes were and my face just looked horrible. It was depressing. Obvioulsy I sent this back. Just so you know, most products break me out, just not this bad. I have used products from Philosophy, MD Skincare, Dr. Brandt, MD Formulations, Skyn Iceland, Kinerese, and the list goes on. They all have not worked for me. I have finally found a moisturizer that doesn't clog my pores or make my skin feel clammy or slimy or greasy or whatever. It's by Kate Somerville and is called Deep Tissue Repair. It's crazy expensive, but it's actually repairing the damage this Unblemish line has done. My skin is looking better everyday (It's only been a little over a week) and I'm not getting any new blemishes. Also, when you order from Kate Somerville you get 5ml sample tubes of her other products. When I ordered they sent me 5 samples!
I bought the set at Nordstrom and used as directed until it was gone, to give it a fair chance. It was pricey (not as bad as La Mer but not Clinique either) The cleanser never made me feel clean as it does not foam(think Cetaphil) but the real bonus is it smells like SULPHUR and no matter how much you rinse (EVEN IN AN ERNO LASZLO 30+ SPLASHES KIND OF WAY) you've still got the smell going on! The toner is okay but burns if you use it twice a day and the treatment lotion is tacky in feel and shiny in finish which with oily skin and blemishes I can do without. I meet one of the doctors at a Nordstrom event and she was friendly & well dressed but her skin looked as if she had just been through a nuclear blast.REDDDDDD!!!! That should have been my first clue as I would not want her complexion at any price.
I've been using this unblemish product for almost 3weeks now and my skin is worst! my skin got worst with the redness and breakouts. I've tried proactiv before too and I had to stop using them because it didn't help me at all. I guess I am allergic to BP?? this unblemish product didn't help me and I am not happy with the result. I think I should use some other product that contains salicylic acid.
I liked this a lot better than Proactiv, which did not work for me. The most important step is step 3, the medicated lotion with 2.5% benzoyl peroxide. If you're trying to take off your makeup, you'll have to wash your face with something else first before using the cleanser (since it's not very effective at removing makeup). The toner is also good, I like that it doesn't have minty stuff in it which will irritate skin. I bought the travel size kit from Nordstrom for $45 or something, I forget. Buying the full sized kit would be more economically efficient, but if this stuff doesn't work for you, it'd be a waste of $85. If I were to buy these separately, I'd just go for the bp lotion.
Proactiv stopped working for me after i began introducing other lines into the program. I decided to try this. For about 2 months, I had gorgeous skin. My stupid cheap side made me want to try and go back to Proactiv to save money. The Unblemish line is $85 for the three piece set while the Proactiv is around $40. Well, lo and behold, Proactive didnt work. So i tried to go back to the Unblemish, and of course, it didnt work at all. Huge disappointment. Constant breakouts. Why did i have to be so cheap? But anyways, I had excellent luck the first time. I have hormonal pimples with clogged pores. I recommend trying this but dont mix it with anything else. Sadly I wont be buying this one again but i still think its a good product.
