Most Helpful Positive Review Bye Bye Old Me! Hello Beautiful!
I have severe rosacea and struggle with ways to cover it up without caking on tons of foundation only to have it feel heavy or come off half way through the day. Also most make ups cause break outs or irritate my already sensitive skin. With Bye Bye redness, I only have to use a tiny bit and it last all day (sometimes...don't judge...if I don't wash my face...into the next day).
This creme has truly been a miracle! I don't need to wear anything else on my face. to cover up my rosacea. I've gone almost 2 years without wearing make up. Since having this creme, I've had a boost of confidence and I've been using it along with eye shadow and mascara and EVERYONE has been commenting on how beautiful I look.
Not to mention my skin doesn't feel irritated and in the Southern heat of Mississippi it doesn't melt off of my face mid-day.
I HIGHLY recommend this creme for anyone struggling with redness and looking for lightweight coverage that's natural, smooth, good for your skin, easy to apply, and just flat out AMAZING!

I decided to bite the bullet and purchase this after hearing so many rave reviews for this product everywhere. I am extremely fair with very sensitive rosacea, and heard that this would be a game changer for me. No foundation that I have tried can cover my rosacea completely so of course I was really excited to try this. I heard many beauty gurus say that this "adjusts" to your skin tone so if you're more fair or darker than the color of this then it would definitely work. After all it is a "neutralizing cream." This product was so incredibly orange on my skin I looked like an oompa loompa. I washed it off and tried to apply less, same result. I even put my foundation over the top and that didn't help at all. It also felt cakey and thick on my skin. It did nothing for my redness that my foundation can't do. Such a bummer because I had such high hopes for this product but I could not make it work for me. So, if you are very fair skinned like me, (I wear Nars sheer glow in Siberia and L'Oreal true match in W1) I would not recommend this product to you.

It does exactly what it says. Problem is you can lose 1/3 of the product the forst time you take the top off because the little plastic piece under the lid is covered with the cream and falls out. This piece needs to be glued in or removed

I love this stuff! I was previously using Colourscience All Calm, but this is just as good and considerably cheaper. For reference, I am a redhead with light to medium neutral skin tone and use Estee Lauder Desert Beige 2N1. In this Bye Bye redness I received a sample in neutral beige which was way too dark. I purchased the light beige and it's still a tad dark, but it works. First I apply moisturizer and let it mostly dry. Then I put a thin layer of this on my cheeks, nose and chin, wait for it to dry, then apply foundation. I haven't tried using a primer yet, so I can't say how that would hold out. I'm very happy with this and will continue to buy.

this product is amazing. I get severe hormonal breakouts, and my face gets really red, especially with prolonged physical activity. bye bye redness camouflages both almost like magic. I will be purchasing my third jar soon. this is the sole product I use as a cover up because it's literally all that is needed! I apply by dotting on with a blending brush, note that a little goes a long way. the only downside is that it will accentuate any dryness, so you must exfoliate and moisturize well. since I tend to break out my go to moisturizer is Belif problem solution, which also doesn't cause any new breakouts. my final recommendation is to go one shade lighter than you think you need. I got shade 2 first time around for my light to medium skin with warm undertones and it was too yellowy. second purchase I got the porcelain although I normally always do light because the light in this case is more of a medium for olive undertones, or for people who tan. the porcelain suited my skin tone best. this product really is great and I hope it never gets discontinued! I do wish there was a shade between the porcelain and light, though.. then it'd be perfect all around.
Helps hide my rosacea without irritation!
Liberty from Oklahoma
I'm thankful I found this product to help conceal my red rosacea sensitive skin!!! I lightly dab it on and blend with a beauty blender. I then apply foundation and set everything with MAC prep & prime spray. Works wonders! My complexion never looked better.
I will buy this product again!

really gets rid of the redness
AB23 from Daytona Beach FL
I've tried so many products to correct or hide redness and none have worked for me, but this one did. I only gave it 4 stars because I am having some flaking and I'm not sure if it's this or one of the facial creams I use.
So hydrating and smooth! Looks like my skin!
AmberA from Seattle, WA
I have natural redness in my face and also from sun damage. This helps eliminate this redness while keeping my skin looking like skin!
Me from Utah
I have rosacea and sensitive skin, this works amazing to cover up my redness and doesn't irritate my skin at all! It's a bit pricey but it lasts me a super long time and I don't wear foundation or anything else so for me it's a one and done, can't recommend this enough!
Bev from Ohio
Oh my gosh, I have been looking for something to get rid of my redness and dry patches that can clearly be seen under any make up I use. My t-zone is so red and dry that no matter if I used full coverage it would show through my make up! I figured I would try this and worst case it didn't work and I would move on, BUT IT WORKED! I put it on after using Clinique 72 hour moisturizer and wow! Just wow! I could have stopped with this product and been just fine but I applied my make up as usual and it's now almost midnight and it looks like I just applied my make up! It's more expensive than what I've paid In the past but well worth it. I'm wishing I would have got the bigger container! Highly recommend!
Love this product for the coverage for my Rosacea.
Mary from Cleveland, Ohio
Works great with my rosacea. Along with my bye bye redness moisturizer.
Favorite concealer ever
Nikki from Redmond. WA
I use it all over my face before I apply my foundation to build coverage.
LOVE LOVE LOVE

I love this product! I have light rosacea and finding something to cover my redness has been a frustrating process. This product is a game changer! I use it under my foundation and it adds the perfect coverage. BUT A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. And I mean very little (which is great because it lasts a long time). The first time I used it, I was surprised of how effective it was, but I put WAY too much on so it looked very cakey. After that, I barely put a little on and it was perfect. Highly recommended product!
I have bought Bye Bye Redness several times
Elke from Oregon
When living the city life, I used Bye Bye Redness as a concealer for my rosacea and then applied a light foundation. Now living in the country, I use it to conceal the rosacea areas, and finish it off with only a setting powder. Perfect and quick! Best of all, it doesn't settle in lines or corners of the nose.
Even though I'm on the fair/medium side, I use the darker color called Neutral Beige. Oh—always use a brush and buff/feather it out to the non-made-up areas.
Madelyne from Michigan
So my hairstylist suggested this to me and I had to try it! It's a bummer it only comes in 3 color variations but it honestly does what it's supposed to. I suggest going a shade lighter than you think if you're using it at a base. I apply my regular foundation over this lightly. It has great coverage that looks natural and soft. It also stays put all day and covers redness so so good!
I would definitely buy again
Stacie J from Monroe NC
I love that this product can be worn by itself for a light foundation and still cover blemishes or that you can apply in trouble spots as a concealer to go with your foundation. It's lightweight and last all day. It is a little on the pricey side but you get what you pay for and it doesn't take much! One jar lasted me about 6months and that was wearing it pretty much every day.
If you're thinking about buying this...please do!!!
Cass from Houston, TX
I'm always skeptical about trying new things on my face, because of how sensitive my skin is. I have mild rosacea, along with red spots. I finally tried this a few days ago and I'm in love with it! One thing to know is, A LITTLE BIT goes A LONG WAY. You don't need very much or you'd definitely get a "cakey" look.
I found it's much easier to moisturize my face and then add a small (very small) dab onto my redness and either wear it as is, for a "natural look" or let it sit on my face before adding a some foundation/or concealer.
Really covered the redness on my cheeks
Sissy from Greenville, SC
I put this on before my foundation. I only needed a little to get great coverage.
Good for covering rosacea
Ana from Cali
I have very red cheeks and this neutralized that. It's small so I run out quickly. But it definitely works. I maybe go through 2 or 3 of these a month which can get pricey but I hate my rosacea so it's definitely worth it for me
Good product, not enough options
Inkedlillie from Anacortes, wa
Only three color options, lightest shade too dark. Was really excited about this for my redness and pink undertone, oh well.
I love this product it covers all my redness!! I love IT!!!

Review after using for a month - Recommend!
Amy from LA from Lafayette, LA
I am a person who usually doesn't wear make up frequently and when I do, it's minimal. I started to become self conscious about the red tone to my face - I would say my redness is definitely noticeable but could be worse. You can use this as a spot treatment, or like I have started to, use it all over the face. I have transitioned from wearing nothing to putting this on everyday because it really helps. So I guess I use it more as a foundation and add some powder if I am going to "wear make up." A little goes a long way and I would guess that everyday, full face use would last 4/5+ months which makes the price tag for the seemingly small jar worth it. Highly recommend!
It is OK. Small container. Formula feels nice.
P from NY
Its a small container. The Formula feels nice but the CC cream does a better coverage.
Did not work for me
Peridot from Hawaii
Did skin care including under eyes, prepped under eyes for the corrector and set with very milled powder....still peeked through and moved after one hour. Did not work the way it was described by an Ulta representative. Just didn't work for me.
GlamGran from Pinehurst, NC
I had some redness after treatment for skin cancer and needed something to cover it. This does a super job of blending into my skin and covering it up. A tiny bit is all you need if you choose the right shade. I am using the lightest shade and it's perfect for me, a blonde with light complexion.
I would buy this again
Nance from Torrance
I use this as a foundation since I work in healthcare and I have to wear a surgical all day. I don't tend to get as oily and as long as I boot it at lunch the redness stays away. Definitely impressed most foundations don't stay on this well. I also use the setting spray gamer changer.
