In a million years, I never thought I would be “that girl”.
In fact, I secretly judged “that girl”. I would roll my eyes when total strangers would spam my inbox with sales pitches for their “life changing skin care”.
“Skin care cannot change your life.” I would think.
A few dear women, who I admire, asked me through out the years to try their products, and as much as I loved them, I just didn’t believe in what they were selling. I thought they had drank the purple juice and had been blindly convinced of this scam.
And then after the hardest 7 months of my life (living in the Congo, isolated from friends and family with 3 new children), I just wanted something that helped me feel good. (No, I’m not replacing Jesus with skin care :) )
I reached out to my sister-in-law, who literally has the most beautiful skin on the planet, and asked her if she thought I would enjoy the benefits of caring for my skin.
She of course said YES!, but I was still skeptical, as previously I had tried oils and natural skin lines, all which just didn’t work for me. In fact, I had multiple bad reactions to products claiming to be “all natural”.
Also, in the back of my mind I was thinking…“It’s too expensive.” “It has chemicals”. “Everyone is doing it…” and… “I don’t want to be that girl.”
What finally sold me, beyond the amazing real life benefits I was seeing in people I actually knew? The 60 day money back guarantee. I knew, that if I didn’t like it or if my skin reacted the way it had to the “all natural” products, I could return it for a 100% money back guarantee.
So I took the plunge!
As an enneagram 4, I was SO nervous. I didn’t even want to tell my closest friends that I was now a part of Rodan + Fields, the largest, most successful skincare line in the world. It was so not me.
But then I got my package in the mail and I was a mix of excited and scarred to open it. Opening it meant I was starting it, which meant I was now “that girl.”
That night I heated up some water and began the 4 step process. Afterwards I literally sat there, completely baffled at how A-MAZING my face felt. I started laughing. Of course, after one use I was understanding why people loved it so much, and I wasn’t even seeing physical results yet.
A few weeks later people starting commenting on my skin. Real life friends were surprised to see such a difference. They, like me, were convinced R+F was a scam.
Real results are proof enough for me and proof enough for my friends.
I’m so thankful I didn’t listen to my fears of becoming “that girl.” I’m so thankful I took a chance on a skin care line that not only allows me a few minutes of peace and solitude twice a day, but also transforms my skin and brings our family extra income. I cannot believe that I’m a part of Rodan + Fields. Orphan Care advocate AND Skin Care advocate. You can be both and I’m proud to say that I am!
