Rodan + Fields Introduces SPOTLESS, a Groundbreaking Acne Solution, and Expands into the Teen Market

Rodan & Fields, LLC (Rodan + Fields), a prestige, dermatology-inspired skincare brand, and the #1 skincare brand in North America has announced the launch of SPOTLESS, a patent-pending teen and young adult acne solution. Stanford-trained dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, who transformed at-home solutions for millions with their first acne success, are leveraging their 25-plus years of experience to revolutionize the category once again. With SPOTLESS, Rodan + Fields offers a solution to treat acne, a debilitating dermatological condition and the #1 skin condition in the US, which impacts 85 percent of teens and young adults.

SPOTLESS features a BPO2 Technology that leverages Benzoyl Peroxide in a groundbreaking new way. Rodan + Fields has developed an innovative liquid form of Benzoyl Peroxide – an industry first – to get through the skin’s stubborn biofilms, helping to bring the microbiome inside the pores back to balance and effectively combat the entire acne cycle. A two-step system, SPOTLESS delivers visible results from Day 1 and makes it easy for teens to be compliant and achieve even better results over time.

“As practicing dermatologists, product developers and women, we understand the emotional, physical and scientific aspects of acne,” said Dr. Katie Rodan, Co-Founder of Rodan + Fields. “Working side-by-side with our team of scientists and innovators we’ve pioneered many skincare firsts, and we’re thrilled to have discovered a game-changing way to treat acne for teens,” said Dr. Kathy Fields, Co-Founder of Rodan + Fields.

Rodan + Fields recognizes the impact acne has on people of all ages – including the 40 percent of adults who experience acne – and knows adult skin requires a different approach than teen skin. With that in mind, the company has updated its UNBLEMISH Regimen, designed to address adult acne, as well as the visible signs of aging, with new formulas that feature Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid.

“With our Founders’ unique perspective and expertise, we believe these formulas will be a breakthrough in the category and give the overwhelming majority of consumers who experience acne an easy, at-home solution,” said Diane Dietz, President and CEO of Rodan + Fields. “We are just scratching the surface of the $124B global skincare category and launching SPOTLESS provides a significant opportunity to reach a new set of customers.”

The SPOTLESS and UNBLEMISH Regimens are available through Rodan + Fields Independent Consultants who power the company’s unique consumer-connected commerce model, and at rodanandfields.com.

ModelCo's Newest Tan Ambassador

Iconic Australian beauty brand ModelCo, known worldwide for their ground-breaking collaborations with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Hailey Baldwin and Rose Huntington-Whitley are going back to their roots and celebrating their Australian heritage by appointing Australia’s sweetheart, Tegan Martin as the face of ModelCo Tan. Following the brands successful and award-winning formulas which boast global-appeal, it was only natural to support the full range of tanning products with an influential voice to further dominate the beauty industry. 

“I love nothing more than supporting Australian talent and Tegan is the quintessential Australian girl that everyone loves, making her the perfect alignment to ModelCo Tan.” – Shelley Sullivan, CEO & Founder.

Better known for taking the crown for Miss Universe in 2014 which swiftly made her a household name, Martin then went on to successfully raise $130,782 for The Sydney Children’s Hospital during her television appearance on The Celebrity Apprentice. More recently as a qualified health coach Tegan decided to openly share her health struggles with the media in order to help others who may be suffering with similar fatigue issues. She is now running online self-love workshops for young women and aspires to help has as many young women she can to navigate through the difficult years of early adulthood.

“I first tried ModelCo when Shelley gave me some on set when we were filming Celebrity Apprentice together a few years ago, I’ve been a fan of the range ever since! My favourite product to date is the Tan Water, I have super dry skin and this tanning innovation hydrates and illuminates instantly!” – Tegan Martin

Martin’s cautious approach to spending time in the sun was also another reason she wanted to amplify the message that the only healthy tan is a fake one.

“Regretfully I did a lot of sun baking in my early teens which has now caused visible damage to my skin and considering both of my parents have had skin cancers cut out, I really had to change my perception on sun baking. I’m a huge advocate for ‘faking it, not baking it’, especially when you can find products like ModelCo that look so real and flawless.”

Creed store opens in Double Bay

Revered French fragrance house Creed, renowned for its quality, refinement and originality, has opened their first Australian flagship boutique in Sydney’s Double Bay.

Offering not just the classic collection of fragrances for which the house is known, Creed Sydney will also welcome exclusive products to Australia for the very first time including Rose Impériale, Love in White Summer, Les Royales Exclusives, the Acqua Originale collection, travel atomisers and Creed Bath and Body.

Designed to reflect the spirit of the brand, the modern and refined store concept has been crafted by Can Onaner, the architect for Creed boutiques all over the world, with his design for the brand inspired by Viennese architect Adolf Loos.

Onaner’s interpretation for the sophisticated and sleek store focuses on dark marble hues and warm timber tones, offset by contemporary wall to ceiling mirrors and gold accents to provide a dramatic back drop to the array of fragrances on display. 

Founded in 1760 in London by James Henry Creed, the house rapidly became a favourite of the Court of England, with Queen Victoria appointing Creed as the court’s official fragrance supplier, an honour that was soon bestowed from a number of the great courts of Europe.


Royals such as Napoléon III, Empress Eugenia, François-Joseph and Elizabeth of Austria-Hungary, and Queen Christina of Spain recognised Creed’s creations for their desirable beauty and authentic innovation, prompting the house to move its base from London to Paris to better serve its exclusive clientele.

Creed’s long familial line of master perfumers, with knowledge passed on from one generation to the next, have created a catalogue of more than 200 fragrances that has seen them become one of the world’s only true ‘cult’ houses. With each generation, a long line of loyal clients has developed, including Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, Paul Newman, Princess Diana and Elizabeth Taylor, and more recently, Brad Pitt, George Cloony and Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.

 In present day, at the helm of the dynasty is Olivier Creed, a fragrance visionary who has dedicated his life to crafting exquisite and internationally revered creations representative of his love of the art of perfumery, proving the adage that master perfumers are born, not made.

Working alongside Olivier is his son and seventh generation heir Erwin who, like his father, has an inherent understanding of the complex world of niche fragrance. Both Olivier and Erwin traverse the globe sourcing the purest essences in existence including rose and jasmine from Bulgaria, Turkey and Morocco; iris from Florence; violets from Parma in Italy and tuberose from India, ensuring their perfumes are as beautiful as those first created more than 250 years ago.
Containing the highest percentage of natural components in the French perfume industry, Creed’s luxurious fragrance compositions are crafted using an infusion technique now abandoned by modern industry, enabling Olivier and Erwin, ever the perfectionists, to preserve the originality of their fragrances, subsequently manufacturing Creed’s own infuson of vanilla, civet, musk and ambergris.

The components are then weighed, mixed, macerated and filtered by hand in the highest tradition of the founder, James Henry Creed. As expert perfumers with an innate ability to create their own perfumes, a skill so rare in today’s industry, it is this talent that contributes to the 250 plus year old company’s resounding, modern-day success.
Committed to offering an unrivalled experience in the world of fragrance, the Creed Sydney flagship will enhance the consumer experience by providing clients with an instore fragrance consultation prior to purchasing, as well as offering private master classes and events.

Rihanna Releases First Ever Tutorial Tuesday For Fenty Beauty

Rihanna’s has released her first-ever Tutorial Tuesday with a #CHILLOWT edition beauty look. Watch as she personally shows you how to use the new Fenty Beauty Chill Owt Holiday Collection.

Included in this collection is the Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Palette, used to create a look that’s icy, celebratory and ready for the holidays with “not too much drama, but it’s still DRAMA”.

The limited-edition palette of seven all-new hyper-metallic Killawatt Foil highlighters in a range of frost-inspired shades designed to make all skin tones pop.

Who says fire and ice don’t mix? Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Palette brings together seven all-new, never-before-seen metallic highlighter shades: Get frosted in stone cold lavenders and icy blues, or heat up in fiery coppers and tangerines. With intense metallic edge, each rule-defying hue looks equally killer on all skin tones.

Take a cue from Rihanna’s personal highlighting technique and rev up your glow with unexpected pops of chrome color. Rihanna’s no-limit approach to highlighting is all about layering luminizer to create colorful dimension from cheeks to eyes to temples—blurring the line where your highlight begins and eyeshadow ends.

Like the bestselling Killawatt you know and love, Killawatt Foil keeps skin lit beyond sundown with its weightless longwear formula—a cream-powder hybrid that instantly melts into skin and blends with almost zero effort. Another win: It’s loaded with extra fine, ultra-smooth shimmer to make all your hyper-metallic gleams come true.
