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