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!
Most Helpful Critical Review Horrible
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.

Been using this product for 5 years. It is my go to for foundation. It blends well and a little goes a long way. It's long lasting wear and is not heavy or cakey. I would consider this a full coverage concealer.
I didn't love it as much as I thought I would

I have rosacea and I use this product everyday

A little goes a long way
Too thick with bad packaging
Jenn from New Jersey
This is not a cream, it's a foundation. And not even a good one. It is so thick and drying, and it settles in every pore and crease on your face. It doesn't blend well at all. The color formulation is also no good and made me look orange like I got a bad spray tan. I'm also shocked that more people haven't commented on how awful the packaging is. Not only is it too small for the price, but you have to dip either your fingers or a brush into it, contaminating the product. You can't take it anywhere because it sloshes around and gets all over the lid and the sides which makes it impossible to open without making a mess. Usually IT cosmetics work so well for me but this one is a huge miss.
Corrects redness but doesn't cover sun spots
Lucy from Colorado
This product works great on my red cheeks. It does a good job of color correction BUT for the red areas only. The only issue I have is that it doesn't work on my brown age/sun spots. It does cover them lightly but the green and brown don't mix well. You can still see the sun spots under the makeup. Product may be buildable but I don't care for multiple layers. IMO same goes for Cicapair, fixes redness but doesn't look good on age spots.
drying and horrible shade selection
Jessicainmd from maryland
the lightest shade looks orange and cakey. it made my skin so flakey and didn't help with redness. I like to use a green primer instead. cancels the red without cakey nightmare.
Em from Chicago
I've used this 3 times so far and omg so good!! It neutralizes my redness from my acne scars so I need less foundation and I don't use concealer now. Definitely will be a staple in my makeup routine.
The name says it all.
CB from NJ
Works so well! I would buy the product again.
Dry dry dry from Montana
It did okay at neutralizing my redness, but it dried out my skin really bad and gave an almost gray cast to my skin? I'll be playing with it more and see what works since it was expensive.
Love this stuff
Jen from KC
I have been very happy with this product. I like the texture, which is much lighter and smoother than the concealer I had been using to try to neutralize redness on my nose from rosacea. I was not sure the color would work, based on my pale complexion, but the lightest shade works well for me. A little goes a long way, and it seems to hold up through the day.
I agree with the comments on the packaging. It's in a small pot with a screw off top, and there is a disc that sits loose in the lid to seal the product. Within a couple seconds of opening it to check the shade, that disc had fallen out of the lid and got everywhere (my hands, the outside of the pot, the counter and the floor in my bathroom). I like the product well enough that I am just keeping it and storing it upright in a drawer.
Great coverage, natural, good color/tone
Valerie from Seattle
This is perfect by itself or under other makeup. I haven't broken out nor have I felt a tacky feeling. I'm so glad I finally purchased as I've wanted to try for years. It'll last a long time, too! I use a beauty blender for it which will keep the jar clean. I'm so happy!!!

I have very oily skin and it's holding its own in this 90 degree weather with humidity!! Best one I have found yet!!

So far it has covered the redness in on face area.
My favorite beauty find ever!
JennaB from Austin
This is my holy grail of makeup! I have red undertones to my fair skin. A tiny application goes a long way to even out my skin tone. I can actually skip foundation and just blend this on instead. Please never stop carrying this product!
I wanted this to work so bad! :(
Amber from Stockton Ca
I had wanted to try this product forever. Finally I womaned up and did it.The forst time I tried it I made sure my face was clean and just did a little moisturizer. It went on very cakey l;ike and the color looked on on my face. I washed it of and the next day tried it again. This time I added moisturizer and a little primer. Hoping it wwould help it spread on my face better. It looked awful. There was no transition as I wwore it throughout the day. Dry and the color was not cool. I am glad this works out for so many peoplle I really wish I was one of them but it was a no go.
MMJ from Chicago, IL
My rosacea caused so much redness and broken capillaries that I had made an appointment for a consultation for laser treatments. I had tried all of the famous full coverage foundations. Not only expensive, but they couldn't coverage the redness either - difficult to color match, too! Then I saw that this was on sale so I figured that I didn't have anything to lose. I bought the light beige color and I am a Desert Beige color in Estee Lauder Doublewear if that helps anyone choose a color. I dabbed on a very small bit of product onto my red areas before my foundation. My skin was truly transformed. It covered well, didn't look cakey and my skin was concealed even in bright sunlight. It lasts all day and stays looking fresh - I wore it for an event and it still looked good 20 hours later. I really don't have to even wear foundation if I put this on. I was so skeptical, but it saved me! Thrilled that I gave it a chance!
Small shade selection
Joely from Apple Valley, MN
I have very pale skin and i was looking for a makeup option to cover my redness without using foundation, i bought the lightest color and i was basically orange. if this product had a bigger selection of shades, i would use it everyday.
It works: pros & cons
Blue kitty from Sharpsburg,Ga.
I bought this because I have redness from a retinol burn and some other redness on my face.
I am 51 and have dry skin.
It's a liquid and a little goes a long way.
This will probably last forever because you really don't need that much.
I worked out while wearing this and it stayed in place.
I have dry skin and it did not settle into lines or cause flakiness.
The packaging is awful.
Because it's in a jar it basically will run up the sides and out of the jar.
If you lose that top part under the cap, I feel for you...This stuff goes everywhere.
The price point, in my opinion could be lower because of the small jar but I guess since it has aloe, collagen, Colloidal Oatmeal in it is the reason why it's so much.
When I apply it it does kinda make my skin feel a little dried out. I use top of the line moisturizer. But my skin doesn't look dry when I put this on.
I do not use powder.
TO SUM UP:
Yes, I would buy this again. But I probably won't have to. It will last forever.
Maybe they will redo the packaging by the time I have to repurchase.
Bye bye rosacea !
Shilo from FL
I went to the store because I have in my 20 Ish years of using makeup have yet to find anything to cover my red rosacea spot. I again was super skeptical as I have used 100's of concealers which always start off nice and in an hour it's like I never even tried. I used this a little goes along way and u get so much product it will last forever. All day long I kept checking my spot and I was blown away it really really works! My holy grail!
Renee from New Jersey
I was looking for something to cover up the redness I've gotten the past year. I don't wear a lot of make-up and didn't want anything to look unnatural and/or cakey. I am so grateful the Ulta employee steered me to this product! She said it is amazing - and she is right! The redness disappears immediately! I do see that some users gave this product a slightly negative review because of the packaging, but I actually like that it's in a little jar - I find it's easiest to apply with a very small cosmetic brush, so it's easy to dip the tip into the jar and get precisely the amount I want. A little goes a VERY long way!! I'm going to stock up on this. :)
Product is great, packaging is terrible
Momofboys from Texas
I love this product! I think it does a great job with concealing my red problem areas around my chin. I agree with some of the other reviews, it would be awesome if there were more color options available and a little does go a long way. My only complaint is the packaging!!!!! So much of my product was wasted when I traveled with it just one time. The plastic liner/cover on lid fell off immediately and the product was all over the lid and rim of the container, making a huge mess. If this came in a tube, this product would definitely get 5 stars from me. It's ideal for small touch ups when you are out and about (especially with all this mask wearing) but it's not ideal or convenient to carry in your purse. PLEASE change the packaging.
The only thing that works for me
Monica the self-made MUA from South Jersey
I have rosacea and this is the only thing I've found that makes my skin look perfect. I use this as my foundation. I have found that it blends better with a dampened beauty blender than a brush. I am fair and the translucent porcelain beige is a spot-on match for me. I go over it with Lancôme' dual finish multitasking powder & foundation for that blur we all are trying to achieve.
SWPaige from Columbus, Ohio
I read all the comments before purchasing, and I can agree with both good and constructive reviews.
I have dryness, red spots and overall unevenly toned skin... so finding this product was AMAZING. However, as others have said, even getting the lightest of the three, it is still way too dark for my skin atm. Which genuine sucks, because you can wear this product pretty much on its own, all day long! Medium-full coverage, not cakey if applied correctly on clean, moisturized skin (when I first tried it my skin was pretty dry... now thanks to my new Ordinary routine that's not an issue). I really do love this product, nothing has ever been able to dull the redness quite like this does... but it is way too dark and the packaging is less than convenient. I have to mix it with a much lighter foundation to use it, and I have yet to find the perfect mixture of colors/brands to get me where I want to be.

Most products do not cover rosacea and redness but this actually gives beautiful coverage. New must-have favorite
