The four separate products are used together daily to combat acne. The Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash is the first step in the regimen. It makes use of a tried and tested acne fighter – sulfur – to unclog and deep cleanse pores while reducing redness. Next is the Clarifying Toner. This is formulated with mild alpha-hydroxy acids that have a light peeling effect to remove layers of dead skin and encourage faster growth of new skin cells.

The Dual Intensive Acne Treatment is the biggest key to the success of the system. It is a lotion based on a 5% benzoyl peroxide treatment combined with botanicals like aloe vera and chamomile. Finally, the Oil Control Lotion is designed to control the production of excess oil throughout the day, keeping the skin from having a greasy looking shine.

The Soothe products do exactly what they say, they soothe the skin.

Purchase of a $45 Business Portfolio is all that is required to enroll as a Consultant and start your Rodan and Fields business. You get your own consultant website, business tools, trainings, marketing materials, and product information. You can also purchase a business kit complete with a large assortment of products and samples, but it’s not required. The lower tier kit costs $695, and $995 for the higher tier kit.

Ability to Succeed

Building long term clients is vital in this business. Once you find people that love the product, you must create and maintain a relationship with them. Give them samples periodically, call to check how they’re doing -without trying to sell something, and remember special events like birthdays and anniversaries.

According to a 2014 income disclosure statement issued by Rodan + Fields, first-level consultants earned $240 to $5,394 during the year. The average earned income for all active consultants in 2014 was $2, 881. The ability to earn a full-time or part-time income certainly exists, but it will take some time to build up to this.

To become a consultant you must purchase a business portfolio for $45. With this portfolio, consultants will receive their own personalized website and access to a consultant area that features business tools, training materials, and product information. This portfolio also includes a DVD which has an introduction of the Rodan and Fields business and testimonial videos.

Since this is network marketing, recruiting other consultants is vitally important if you want to build a hefty revenue stream. This allows you to create leverage. If you have 10 people working with you and you make a percentage of what they are earning, as well as the commissions on sales you make, you will be leveraging their efforts for increased income.

The personalized website is extremely important to be able to recruit other consultants because it gives you an easy way to sign them up into your downline.
