The request came in for the Doctors to develop a product that can give a polished look, but not a product like all the others that masks their natural glow, clog their pores or harms their skin. So the Docs and the research team decided to create something to protect and instantly perfect the glowing skin these women had earned through daily regimen usage. Today, I am presenting this new product: RADIANT DEFENSE PERFECTING LIQUID.
WHAT IS RADIANT DEFENSE PERFECTING LIQUID? Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid is a multi-tasking Glow Guard that perfects the look of skin and protects your natural glow, delivering a radiant, healthy-looking complexion. It is formulated with our proprietary RD3 Complex, it provides skin with three types of defense: environmental defense, barrier defense, and photo defense (SPF 30 in US/CA, SPF 25 in AUS). This last step in your skincare routine not only provides powerhouse protection but also instantly perfects skin, blurring imperfections without clogging pores or breakouts. Radiant Defense is available in six luminous shades that can be worn alone or blended together for a customized glow. Plus, coverage is buildable so you are in control of the perfecting process.
WHO CAN USE RADIANT DEFENSE PERFECTING LIQUID? This product is for all skin tones from fair to deep. It comes in 6 flexible, natural-looking shades that can be worn alone or mixed together for a customized glow. It is also appropriate for all skin types, even for sensitive and acne-prone skin. It is non-comedogenic and non- pores or cause breakouts. It is the perfect last step to every skincare routine for Soothe, Unblemish, Reverse and Redefine users or those new to Rodan and Fields.
WHY SHOULD I PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT (VERSUS OTHERS)? Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid takes hybrid skincare/tinted products to the next level by providing skin breakthrough protection with perfecting aesthetics. Other tinted products like foundations or BB/CC Creams, can often feel heavy or greasy, lack efficacy, cause breakouts, clog pores and either provide to heavy or too light coverage.
