I Woke Up Like This (#NotFlawless)

Written by Lindsay Scouras

Haven’t you guys always wondered what I looked like without makeup? No? Well, if not, you may want to turn back now, because this post is chock full of #nofilter realness. Why would I subject myself to revealing my less than stellar skin to the world?

Simply put, I’m going to be your guinea pig. If you’ve tried what seems like every skincare product out there and still aren’t happy with the results, you’re not alone. Which is why I was so excited when consultant Lisa approached me about Rodan + Fields, a line of premium skincare products designed by world-renowned dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, creators of Proactiv.


Lisa had seen some of my previous haul videos and the blog and asked me if I’d be interested in learning more about the company and its products. I said “duh” and now here we are!

Lisa and I discussed the current state of my skin and what issues I’ve had in the past. I shared with her that ever since I turned thirty, I’ve seen a definite change in the way my skin bounces back from blemishes, not to mention a lot of little spots and discoloration from long ago that just never seemed to heal. It was determined that I would benefit the most from the REVERSE regimen, which is specifically meant to target brown spots, dullness, and discoloration.

For more on my skin story, check out my latest video on my YouTube channel and see which R+F products are part of this regimen!

You may have seen on my Snapchat (@legallylinz) my no-makeup selfie that I posted last week when I was in the process of filming my video. In case you missed it, here’s my “before” photo from the day I started my regimen:

Eeeeek. As you can see, we’ve got some work to do here.

I’ll be checking in every two weeks or so to update you on my progress with my R+F regimen, and hopefully doing a tutorial that actually demonstrates how to use the products (including the REDEFINE AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller below – it’s so cool!).Roller Collage

More posts to come, including a skincare Q&A with Lisa and even a small giveaway!

Until then,
