Rodan and Fields Skincare Australia, my take on whether this is a good home business idea
Simple skincare, MLM, or scam review
There are so many businesses and sites out there dedicated to online home business ideas.
So what makes this business model any different to the rest?
What is Rodan and Fields?
From the creators of the very popular skincare product, Proactive.
With this success, the world renowned Dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields went on to develop and create the skin care range that is Rodan + Fields.
Initially, the brand was purchased by Estee Lauder, and the products were sold in Nordstrom, a high-end retail store.
However, with market research and customer feedback, it became apparent that the product was actually selling because of word of mouth, and not the presence of it within the store.
This lead to Rodan and Fields buying back the retail rights from Estee Lauder and branching out to a direct selling business model.
The Rodan and Fields Skincare range
The range is comprised of three main regimens to cater for the individual skincare needs of each person.
A number of products that are designed to combat the signs of ageing; Wrinkles, Lines, Pores and Loss of Firmness.
This includes daily cleansing mask, pore minimising toner, Triple Defense Treatment SPF 15 and overnight restorative cream. In addition to this, they have a Redefine AMP MD product that is designed for firmer looking skin.
Used to address the dull appearance of sun damaged skin, discoloured and skin spots. This may become one of the most popular products in Australia to deal with our harsh sun and our outdoors lifestyle.
This includes deep exfoliating wash, intensive brightening toner, dual active brightening complex, shield brightening lotion SPF 15.
For women and men with dryness and chapping that leads to sensitive skin. This is achieved by reducing the visibility of sensitivity, fortifying the skin’s natural moisture barrier, and neutralising irritants on the skin caused by environmental and lifestyle factors.
This includes gentle cream wash, sensitive skin treatment, moisture replenishing cream and calming lotion SPF 15.
Rodan and Fields range also includes additional products that can be used to compliment the regime that you are using. These include night renewing serum, lip renewing serum, multi-function eye cream, eye cloths for removing make-up, daily body moisturiser, lip shield SPF 15, gauze pads for applying and removing make-up and products.
A summary of each regimen and product is available for your information here.

What does a recent adopter of the business model think?
Kimberly – March 1, 2017
I am in my first month of starting my Rodan + Fields business.
I look at it as a mini-franchise without an initial outlay investment. I don’t need the capital investment of a storefront, but I get to carry and promote products that have made a difference to me.
I did not have to buy a big box of inventory to start out, and I don’t have to carry any inventory.
The company does that for me. All I have to do is take care of my customers. And that is fun. I have an excuse to be social and connected.
There is a monthly fee to have a sales website, but it’s optional. I have low expectations the first year, as I know this isn’t a get rich quick scheme. It is a business that I can build into a long term residual income.
But I am having a lot of fun. The team culture is very positive and empowering. I do feel weird approaching friends and family, but I always leave an “out” and really, it’s just me letting people know it’s available, I have it, reminding them sometimes, and then letting it go. I love this opportunity!

So, the verdict! Is this a good home business idea?
Rodan + Fields skincare is not for everybody. But it is an excellent opportunity for women and men passionate in skincare and building a profitable home based, or online business.
Rodan and Fields products have a lot of positive reviews from consumers and few negative reviews on the internet. The support from their consultants and corporate office also appear to be of a high standard.Rodan + Fields have also been featured in Oprah Magazine, Allure, Forbes, New Beauty and Vogue, just to name a few.

Just as in any business you need to have belief in the brand and the products that you sell. It’s also not all about hassling your friends, co-workers, neighbours, and family. It’s not like Avon or Amway, where you have to buy up stocks and hit up everyone you know to try and sell it.
The product itself has a strong niche following, and now rated #1 skincare range across all price points and product types in America.
It’s a great home based business idea Australia. The networking, friendships and support that you receive from your partners are of a high benefit in itself, regardless whether you take this on as a side income business or develop it into your 5-year plan.
