Exclusive: Rodan + Fields Is Launching the Ultimate Sun-Care Product, the Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid


Article by Allure

Even though we may be nearing the end of summer, that doesn't mean it's time for you to stash your sunscreen anytime soon.

That said, if you're in need of further convincing, maybe Rodan + Fields's latest launch will change your mind.

As Allure exclusively reports, the dermatologist-founded brand is forging new ground with its latest launch: Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid with Broad Spectrum SPF 30, an all-in-one skin tint that protects your complexion against a variety of stressors and even improves skin's overall appearance over time.

"With Rodan + Fields, [its] mission is to give people the best skin of their lives with dermatology-inspired skin care that delivers visible results and really works," Dalia Stoddard, the brand's vice president of product development, tells Allure. "[Radiant Defense] combines the power of dermatology-inspired skin care with immediate perfecting results in one multi-tasking step."

The formula, which features peptides and antioxidants (in the form of blueberry extract and red algae), is intended as a last step of your skin-care routine, right before applying makeup. "[Doctors Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields] know that almost every woman uses some sort of finishing product after their skin-care routine to even out the skin tone and create a flawless look," Stoddard explains. "But they also know that many women don't necessarily consider these products as 'good for your skin.'"

In addition to offering a slew of skin-care benefits, Radiant Defense was also dermatologist-tested to be non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic. Sure enough, after two weeks of testing, I had yet to get a pimple as a result of wearing the product — an impressive feat considering that my sensitive, acne-prone skin has the unfortunate tendency to break out if you do so much as look at it.

As far as finish goes, Radiant Defense offers a buildable, light-to-medium coverage in an array of six versatile shades — a range that was intentional for the brand, who envisioned a product that would offer a sheer glow, not a full-coverage finish.
