Spotlight on Women in Business: Betty Herbert – Rodan + Fields Skin Care Review

I had the pleasure of reviewing two of the Rodan + Fields skin care lines from my friend and consultant Betty Herbert.  Betty was kind enough to send me two kits:  Redefine and Redefine AMP MD.  These are the two kits that she recommended for my particular skin type and issues.

I have had a acne problem for years and I have tried everything on the market and continue to try every new product that comes out.  I’ve been to more dermatologist in my lifetime than most people visit their doctor when they are sick.  My parents both had skin issues so I got slammed from both sides of the family.  I’ve tried over the years prescription drugs for acne, pills, creams, gels you name it and nothing seems to cure it for good.  I guess it’s in my genes and there isn’t much I can do but keep my skin as clean as possible with a good regimen and control the acne as best I can. The over the counter type cleansers do nothing for me.  I have consulted with doctors, estheticians, holistic practitioners and tried every possible thing they have suggested.  Whatever I use seems to be a temporary fix but nothing (including prescription medication) has a lasting effect on my skin. My biggest issues is clogged pores.

So when Betty suggested I try Rodan + Fields I was excited to get started as I have been hearing and reading wonderful things about this line of products.  They have many different kits for different skin types and your consultant can advise you of the best ones for you to use.  Betty came to my home and personally looked at my skin and addressed my concerns and needs.  She then recommended two different kits for me to use.

I started keeping a diary the first week of how each product was working for my skin.  You can see my comments below.

Day 1:   Skin feels amazing after morning routine.

Day 2:  Enlarged pores are not as visible already.

Day 3:  Black heads and clogged pores already coming to the surface.

Day 4:  No visible signs of greasy areas (t-zone) all day long.

Day 5:  Tingling sensation when using AMP roller to stimulate the collagen.


If your current skin care is not working for you I highly recommend your check out the entire line of products from Rodan + Fields.  Rodan + Fields are the two female dermatologist behind the very successful acne line called Proactiv.  These ladies know their stuff and now you can address many different adult skin issues with their new line of products.

Rodan + Fields does have an adult acne line (it’s not what I used because Betty felt the two products she suggested would be better suited to my individual skin needs) called UNBLEMISH.  This line is specifically for adult acne issues.

Here is a before and after photos (not me) of a customer who had amazing success with acne scaring using Rodan & Fields products.  I have some acne scars but I have not been using the product long enough to see a this type of success. Betty informs me that it would take a year or more of using the Rodan & Fields products to see this type of result. You can consult with Betty on exactly which products were used to get this result.


A message from Betty Herbert:
It’s advantageous to become a PC (preferred customer), which is a one time fee of $20. Being a PC gives you a 10% discount and free shipping on everything over $80 so, it pays for itself after one shipment. PC’s are offered the option to receive replenishment orders every 60 days, but they can always postpone this if they are not ready for more products. As a special offer to your readers, I would be willing to reimburse them the $20 PC fee with their first order. They would need to pay for it with their order, and I can give them cash back.

Do you know all the health benefits of Macha Tea?

While watching the Dr. Oz show today I was enlightened about all the health benefits of drinking Macha Tea.  I had heard about the tea before but never really paid much attention to it until now.  Try to invest in an “organic matcha” to avoid destroying any of the health benefits from the chemical pesticides that other teas are sprayed with during the growing process.  It’s such a small investment to improve your health so give it a try.  I am going to order today.  I found a few brands that have great reviews (below) so just click on the brand and it will take you right to place your order.

You may also want to invest in a Matcha Tea wisk it is necessary to get the best result from your loose tea. See below for inexpensive ones you can purchase.

Here are the health benefits that Matcha Tea is supposed to provide:

1. High in Antioxidants
2. Loaded with Catechin, EGCg
3. Enhances Calm (boy do I need this)
4. Boosts Memory and Concentration (boy do I need this too)
5. Increases Energy Levels and Endurance
6. Burns Calories
7. Detoxifies the Body
8. Fortifies the Immune System
9. Improves Cholesterol

How to make Matcha Tea in a cup! (Watch this video)

STEP ONE: Heat spring or filtered water to 175-180 degrees this is important you don’t want the water too too hot.
STEP TWO: Add a few drops of hot water to matcha powder and mix into paste with a matcha wisk.
STEP THREE: Add more hot water to paste mixture and stir. Try 1 teaspoon to 6 ounces of water. Adjust measurement to suit taste.
STEP FOUR: Matcha is ready to drink

Mally Beauty Cosmetics Review!

I had the pleasure of receiving some wonderful make up from Mally Beauty for review.  Many of you may be familiar with Mally Beauty Cosmetics and it’s founder Mally Roncal but if not let me give you a little background on the company and it’s founder.

Makeup artist Mally Roncal’s love affair with all things glam started at an early age. As a young girl growing up in upstate New York, Mally began experimenting with makeup on her mother, an incredible beauty who was and continues to be her biggest inspiration. From that early age, Mally’s parents instilled in her the philosophy that the things that make us different are the qualities that make us beautiful—a mantra that has guided Mally in her every pursuit. Mally has traveled the globe doing makeup for some of the most fab faces in the world, including Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Teri Hatcher, Celine Dion, Lee Ann Womack, Ashlee Simpson, Angelina Jolie, and Heidi Klum. Renowned for her ability to make her clients look and feel beautiful, Mally became the go-to makeup artist for all things beauty, sharing her advice in the pages of top magazines and on shows like Oprah, The Today Show, Rachael Ray, and The View. Today her line consists of over 1,000 products designed to deliver what Mally calls “bulletproof” beauty: user-friendly, multitasking products that truly stay put all day.


I received for review Mally’s High Shine Liquid Lipstick in Orchid, H3 Gel Lipstick and Evercolor Shadow Stick in Moonlight and Mahogany.

The High Shine Liquid Lipstick Pen in Orchid – is a 4-in-1 product that includes your lip primer, lipstick, lip gloss, and lip liner all in one.  I love the convenience of having it in a brush on pen in a compact container to slip right into my handbag.  This product is available in 31 shades so there has to be one or more that is right for your taste.

The H3 Gel Lipstick in Poppie – is a gel-infused H3 Gel Lipstick is a gel-based lipstick rather than wax-based. This lasted for hours without me having to reapply I will certainly buy more colors from this line.  Check out all 12 shades here.

The Evercolor Shadow Stick – is your primer, shadow base, and eye shadow all in one. You can also use it as an eyeliner.  That’s four ways to use this one product which saves you money. The Evercolor Shadown Stick is available in 24 shades check them out here. 

You can purchase any of the Mally Beauty cosmetics at her website or they are available at
