HUGE Rodan & Fields GIVEAWAY! (from my friend, Dana)

My name is Dana Hicks– I’m married 20 years this month to the love of my life Lonny, I have 2 boys – Tyler 14 and Jacoby 17 and I’m a 3rd grade teacher with early childhood & language arts endorsements.

I was recently introduced to Rodan & Fields just a few months ago– I was practically out of ALL my skin care products on a day when I went to get my hair styled. I knew I needed to purchase something that would focus on my aging skin. My hair stylist of 10 years introduced the product to me at a perfect time. When she said the same doctors who created PROACTIV made the products, I knew I needed to try it.

What they did for the acne market with ProActiv, they are doing again for the Anti-Aging market.

Along with an Anti-Aging line they also have products for erasing sun damage and dark spots, soothing sensitive skin, as well as products for acne.

It saved my 17-year-old son from going on Accutane for his acne.

I immediately saw the potential of the business model becoming a blessing for my family financially, so I jumped in feet first and have enjoyed every moment sharing the products, caring for other’s skin care needs, and training other consultants to do the same.

I used REVERSE to get rid of my sunspots and uneven skin tone then added the complete REDEFINE regimen to decrease my wrinkles and minimize my pores. My son uses UNBLEMISH and the Micro-Dermabrasion Paste.

There are 4 product lines:
For brown spots, dullness and sun damaged skin.

For acne and post-acne marks.
 photo dana1-2.jpg

For wrinkles, pores and loss of firmness.

For sensitive, irritated skin and facial redness.

Each regimen is created to work in the right order, in the right formulations, in a multi-medicine therapy for specific needs. Each regimen is TWO MONTHS worth of product and 100% empty bottle money back guarantee. To find out which one is best for you, consider what your MAIN SKIN ISSUE IS. Watch this results video, it’s inspiring!

Why do I share Rodan + Fields? It’s a product I have tried for myself, I quickly saw amazing results and now I firmly believe in it and want to share it with others! It fits into my schedule as a working mom, my family wants to support short and long-term mission trips, we want to bless families who want to adopt with the funds to do so, and we want to financially be able to give ANYTIME we feel we are called to.

Let’s randomly draw to give away the REVERSE regimen (valued at $193.00)!
To enter the giveaway simply find out which regimen is right for you with this quick 30 second questionnaire HERE,
and tell us your results in the comments below.
(don’t forget to email the results to yourself!)

 photo homestatelovecollcopy.jpg
Our “love for Oklahoma” necklace was so popular that we are now offering every state!
We hand mold each state in bronze and adorn it with a silver heart,
hung on a sterling chain with a pearl.
Some hearts will be bigger or smaller depending on the shape and size of the state,
but they all turn out beautifully–
a great way to show your pride for your state.

sugar packet sniper

With 4 kids ages 5-12, sometimes waiting can be hard—
so when we go out to eat our family likes to play a little game while waiting for our food to arrive:
we get a sugar packet for each member of the family,
then make a little dot on one of them- the person who gets this one is the “sniper”…
 photo sugarpackets.jpg
Someone mixes them all up and hands them out randomly
(each kid gets a turn to hand them out)
and then the “sniper” tries to secretly wink at everyone else, one at a time…
 photo edenwink.jpg
When you get winked out you wait a few seconds
(so you don’t blow their cover)
and then declare “I’m out”.
If the “sniper” gets everyone without being caught by someone seeing them wink they win,
otherwise the “sniper” who gets the most people out before being caught wins.
We have lots of fun,
and the wait time passes by so quickly!

I usually use this lens

and Eden helped me test it out…
she has just crawled out of bed,
so please excuse her awesome case of bedhead and pajamas.
