Beauty product review: Rodan + Fields Sunless Tanner

For those of you who don't know, about a month ago I decided to join the dermatologists that created Proactiv to become an independent consultant for their anti-aging skincare line, Rodan + Fields.  My friend Meagan has been a consultant since last year, and after seeing how excited she and her sister-in-law were about the products, I decided to jump on board (if not for the sole reason to give me something to do while I'm not working fulltime.) I started using their Unblemish line for adult acne, and have had some pretty great results - the products REALLY work and I'm excited to start hearing about the results my clients are getting. :)

Well, at the end of March, they had a flash deal to buy one, get one free of the sunless tanner product.  Now - I used to tan in tanning beds in college, and have since moved away from that now that I'm older, and realize I'm probably going to be getting wrinkles soon, not to mention the threat of skin cancer is pretty scary.  I've used all sorts of sunless tanning products, none of which I have loved, and have also done spray tans, which happen to be pretty pricey, and sticky, and pretty much prevent you from doing anything until you've waited 8 hours and showered the next morning.  Super inconvenient.  So I bought the sunless tanner deal since I get it at wholesale price to test it out.  I figured it had to be good if Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields developed it, so why not?

I received my order in the mail in a record one day, and was pleasantly surprised when I opened it up.  Its a foam, but its not sticky.  If you rub your hands together it almost turns into a liquid which you can easily apply.  One pump goes a long way.  It doesn't have that awful DHA smell that prevents you from going out in public...in fact, it actually smells kind of nice.  And did I mention, its not sticky?? Amazing.  Well, if that isn't amazing enough, the fact that I saw my legs getting tan within TWO HOURS is pretty freaking unbelievable. It wasn't orange at all...Tyler actually commented on how natural the color was, and it wasn't streaky at all.  Oh, and I could go out and do whatever I wanted around town, because I didn't STINK.  Amazing.

So, on a scale of 1-10, I rate this product a... (drumroll, please) resounding 10!! I'm pretty picky when it comes to products, and this has definitely has claimed its place as the sunless tanner I will use from now on.

If you're interested in trying out the sunless tanner for yourself, you can find it on my webpage under "Our Products" and then "Essentials".  I can help you place your order if you need help:

  1. Golf season has begun and since I can't play barefoot, I now have tan legs and white white feet! Now it looks pretty bad when I wear a dress and have these white feet; everyone says "Oh, you play golf, don't you?" Not what I want to hear when I am out on the town. Along comes Roden & Fields Sunless Foam Tanner; incredible! 2 applications and now my feet perfectly blend in with my tan legs! I love the foam; very easy to use and one pump does the trick. No orange streaks, no stickness, and no bad smell. I am completely sold on this product; I have tried others but this is by far the best. Thanks Nikki for introducing me to R&F and this great product. A 10 in my book too!

  2. How would you suggest applying this to eliminate tan line? Like Beverly, I'm tan, but I'm obviously a swimmer and would like to be able to wear a strapless dress.

    Beverly- how did you avoid overlap and an obvious line?

  3. Hi Kendra! Since you're a swimmer, I would apply it all over with one application and see how it does. After two applications, I think it would be perfect. I use this regularly and have seen that it nicely blends strap lines with my skin that is tan, and looks really natural!

    Don't forget that since you are out in the sun a lot swimming, you should ALWAYS wear a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF!

    1. Hi Bmetal! Yes, I actually use it on my face for a little extra glow. I exfoliate before and then use the sunless tanner before bed. Let me know if I can help you with an order!
