I suffer from super bad allergies on top of that I have super sensitive skin. Together these things caused a lot of red painless irritation to my cheeks. Because of the irritation I couldn't get my Mac foundation to sit very well on my face. I always use a primer, I use Clinque liquid soap, Dermalogica toner (no alcohol or witch hazel) and Dermalogica's Active Sport moisturizer. However my beloved Mac foundation kept looking super cakey and bumpy after each application. I switched up primers, I switched up setting sprays, I tried just about anything to fix this "problem". I have always loved Clinque's skin care. So I popped in explained my situation to the lady at the Clinque counter and she recommended this product. The first night it kinda burned a little. The burn didnt last long but I was a little worried.. Until I woke up the next morning and I saw for the first time in MONTHS, my natural skin color.. The red was gone.. I have been using this since.. I use this in the morning as my all over face moisturizer, before I prime my face and at night I spot moisturize this my cheeks using my Dermalogica on the rest of my face and my skin hasn't felt softer and this heather in a very long time.. Fabulous product..
Most Helpful Critical Review Initial relief, not lasting
Bought this to treat rosacea with acne, but moisturizer is too drying and has no long-term benefit to using it; found that my acne scars wouldn't heal without any moisturization from the product. Basically just pretty whipped aloe is what it seems like. Nothing to it. No long term benefit by using it. Overpriced aloe. Pretty container.

I've had rosacea most of my life and this product made it worse. When I put it on, my face immediately felt hot and irritated. I tried it on several different days to make sure it wasn't something else I had done and it is definitely the product. It goes on heavy, thick and so sticky. It stays sticky for hours until you take it off which can't be good for any skin. It continued to burn and the redness flared. It's very difficult to remove once it's on your face w/o further irritating your skin and my skin burned and flared bright red for hours after removing it.

I've been using the Redness Solutions line for 9 months now & it's been a lifesaver! I've struggled trying to find products that didn't just cover up but also helped reduce the redness ....this is what works for me!
Daisy from TX
I've used many products to help reduce redness in my face and nothing compares to this product! I've made it a part of my morning/night routine for the past few months and really noticed a difference. I don't need to use a lot so it's lasted longer than I thought it was.
Works great on sensitive skin
Jwhite from Albuquerque
I have dry combo sensitive skin and I need a little bit of a heavier moisturizer at night sometimes. I recently started using a retinol for acne that completely dried out my skin. It was red and tight and peeling. No amount of moisturizer was working. I found this and decided to give it a try. It worked like magic! I know the product says it's mainly meant for rosacea, and I don't know how well it works for that but I know that if you have red and irritated skin from other outside stressors, this works really well. Not super greasy and I haven't had any new breakouts which is saying something because my skin hates new products. But it seemed to like this. A little goes a long way so it definitely is worth the pretty price tag because it will last you a very long time.

I have really bad rosacea. Without makeup on, I've had strangers comment "wow, you have bad wind burn" or "you got a bad sunburn today" when I've had neither. 😩 Besides the fact people should keep their comments to themselves, this product WORKS. I am so amazed at how it has calmed my skin, reduced the redness, it makes my skin feel better, smoother, and I experience minimal flare ups. After using it, I also purchased the cleanser, which is amazing as well. Would highly recommend!
Not for me.
Sarah N. from Williamsburg, VA
For me this didn't work at all. I have pretty severe rosacea on my cheeks and I knew this wouldn't necessarily treat it as much as simply hide it but it didn't even do that. I was so excited to try it but after over a month of use I only know that the redness is worse and in the heat it makes my face feel wet constantly. If you have a mild redness and dry skin this will probably work fine for you but for oily rosacea-prone skin, not at all.
Haley from Prattville, AL
Normally I don't write reviews. However, this cream is pretty amazing. Literally after one use I can tell a huge difference in my skin. Will definitely keep buying this!
Doesn't work sadly
Bethany from Washington
I have light redness over my cheek area that has suddenly gotten worse now that I'm in my late 30's - I tried using this moisturizer in place of my Bare-minerals butter drench cream but I just felt like my skin sucked in this moisturizer and it left my skin feeling a little dry - it's not a good base moisturizer if you wear full coverage clay makeup like Tarte foundation - sadly I'm going to have to return this one!
Themanataur from SC
I tried a sample of this and hated it. Will not recommend to anyone. I'd rather have my redness.
I was skeptical, BUT this might actually change my life!!
Jen from Albuquerque, NM
I NEVER write reviews on any products. But this one was a must! I've searched high and low for something that can heal my perioral dermatitis, redness, and super sensitive skin.Tried every foundation from high end, to drug store. Most of the primers. Most of the moisturizers, and face washes. Been on a tried and true mission to stop being so self conscious and embarrassed by my face. In doing so, I ended up with blotchy red, dry, caked bumps all over my face. Someone recommended I try Clinique products, since they are hypoallergenic, fragrance free, and safe for sensitive skin. I stumbled upon this line. I doubt I'll ever change now. Today was day 1 of use. I can already see a HUGE reduction in redness, dry patched, and busted blood vessels on the face. My face felt so soft and awesome all day too! My makeup stayed in place. Foundation did not cling to the dry areas as usual either. I paired these products with the Clinique even better hydrating and repairing foundation. I use the color Flax paired with Clinique beyond perfecting concealer in very fair 04. Perfect pairing. My skin hasn't felt this good, or this soft in a long time! my new holy grail! Thank you Clinique! Happy customer!
actually works and fast

I applied this for the first time and about an hour later my redness was dramatically decreased! I cannot wait to keep using this!
drea2626 from Newark, CA
I have had my face freak out recently over the past few years and this is the ONLY thing that makes it not only stop but go away! I have tried everything under the sun. I am allergic to eye makeup and foundation and ALL Products but this! Thank you and please never stop making it. Eczema relief!
Nice facial cream
4workoutgirl from Racine WI
This moisturizer along with the cleanser has helped me with my rosacea although it's no miracle cure. I've see a definite improvement. I rarely wear foundation because I've never liked the look or feel of it on my skin. That being said, I REALLY wish this product had an SPF in it since I don't generally wear anything else on my skin for that added protection.
Sara from TX
I've had mild rosacea for awhile now. Its very embarrassing for me. I only have it on my cheeks so they doctors didn't consider it full blown rosacea but I still couldn't stand it. I bought this along with the facial cleanser and my face has no little red bumps anymore! The red is super light and I'm just amazed I've only been using it for about 3 days so maybe I'm jumping too fast! Honestly, I love it! There is no fragrance which I love even more! I will be buying the toner as well! It is pricey but so worth the money!
Works well for redness and other benefits too
Summergirl from Chicago, IL
This moisturizer does what it says. Helps to diminish redness and blotches. After using one month, I also see fewer wrinkles and less sagging. Best product I have tried for redness. A little pricey but worth it.
Using with Redness Solutions Cleanser.
I love this
Stevie from St. Louis MO
I use this morning and night in combination with the cleanser, and it has really cleared up my redness. After running out and not having it for about a week, I noticed my skin gaining some of its redness and texture back.
angie from ny
I have been using this for about two weeks and I have noticed reduced redness in my cheeks where I have rosacea. I had issues with pilling at first, but now I just let it "dry" before applying makeup. It doesn't get rid of the redness completely, but I don't think anything on the market does. I use this under UD optical illusion primer and maybelline bb cream and a lot of people have commented on my skin being less red and more even. As long as it continues to work, I will save my money to buy it.
Love this! Really helps with the redness!
Bj from Caldwell, Idaho
Use as directed! Works great for redness and calms skin irritations as well!
New2SkinCare from California
I've been using this for about 2 weeks and I haven't seen much of a difference. I have oily skin and rosacea mainly on my cheeks. I was hoping it would instantly calm just a little bit of the redness. I apply every night and morning after I wash my face. Hopefully if I keep using it, my rosacea will gradually get better!
Did Absolutely Nothing
Agnes from Streamwood, Il
I have been using this for about two weeks now and it's done nothing for my redness. I always had redness in my skin but it was barely noticeable until recently when my skin looks extremely red in my cheeks all the time. This was recommended to me by a beauty specialist at Ulta but unfortunately I will be returning it.
An answer to prayer!
Patsy72 from Dothan, Alabama
I am 46 years old and have suffered with hives and redness all over my face for several years. Sometimes it was so bad makeup could not hide it. I have gotten steroid shots and taken steroid pills and it still would not go away. I take a ton of antihistamines just to look as normal as possible - but still had severe hives and redness. Several months ago I developed red, sensitive, flaky skin near my nose and other areas on my face. It wouldn't go away no matter how much I moisturized it. Finally it started on my eyelids and corners of skin near eyes. It all was very sore yet itched and was flaky. It looked like eczema. I received a small sample of this after my Ulta hair stylist told me about it and I immediately started using it. The first day there was a difference, second, third, fourth day and so on my skin looked better and better. Here I am 2 weeks later with every area healed. No soreness, itching or flaky skin. My face looks so clear! My makeup goes on so smoothly over this. Plus it's an awesome moisturizer. Thank you Clinique!
Doesn't work, made it worse.

I have a problem with Roscea and my dermatologist told me about this great cream.....I have been using it for about 3 months now and you will not believe the difference it has made...wonderful product
Amazing for red winter dry skin
Rachel from Illinois
I get red on my cheeks nose and forehead especially in the winter time. This stuff after a few days did decrease the redness and I like how soft and non greasy it feels on my skin. Will buy again.
I would buy this product again

I have always used this and tried to used something else and didn't like it.
