Note: I recently became a Rodan + Fields consultant. All opinions expressed are my own. All links will take you to my consultant websites.
If you are interested in Rodan + Fields products, the best way to purchase is through the Preferred Customer program called "PC Perks."
I was hesitant when I first ordered because of the auto-shipments. The default is for the next shipment to be the same products purchased on the last order. But once I created my account, it was easy to edit my replenishment orders.
As an example, my first order was the Reverse regimen. On the second month, though, I was either planning to order the Redefine regimen or go to a "mini-regimen" of the Microdermabrasion Paste and the Night Renewing Serum.
Auto-ship orders have to be at least $80 to qualify for free shipping. All of the regimens easily hit this minimum, but if I had wanted a less-expensive product like the Mineral Peptides, I would have had to add something else, like they Eye Cloths, to meet that minimum.
As long as you continue to order $80 every 60 days ($40 per month) you retain the PC benefits. If you fall in love with the products, that's easy to do. But if it turns out that you don't, the products have a 60-day Satisfaction Guarantee (even if you have used all of the product), and the PC Perks account can be cancelled at any time.
Please let me know if you are interested in becoming a Preferred Customer or a Consultant. I'd love to help you with any questions you have.
