Most Helpful Positive Review Best Cleanser for Sensitive Red Skin
I have used many products which claim they won't harm my sensitive skin -- and they have left me with burning/tingling skin. I have Rosacea and haved used this product for the past 6 months and can't say enough wonderful things about it. It has reduced the redness, has not made my face feel tight or caused a burning sensation. I LOVE it! I use this in conjunction with the Redness Solution Daily Relief Cream. It is a great combination for my skin. I tell anyone who will stand still long enough about how wonderful these two products are -- even my husband has noticed the difference!! And that is amazing! Thank you for the great products you provide.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not irritating but not really CLEANING skin
I did the "live chat" with the Clinque website to ask about why my face didn't feel clean nor seem to get all my make up off with the REDNESS solutions cleanser ( I dont wear foundation, only their redness powder)...and here is what clinique said...
"I'm sorry. Actually, our skin needs a higher level of cleansing at night to remove not only makeup and sunscreens, but also perspiration, pollution, soil and excess oil than you need in the morning when we need a lighter level of cleansing. So for the cleanest skin possible and to allow your Redness Solutions Cleanser to effectively cleanse the skin, it's best to use a makeup solvent to break down the makeup and sun block first."
"It cleanses the skin of the perspiration, pollution and excess oil that is on the skin during the day but with the long wearing makeup technology available, you need a makeup solvent at night first to help remove it. For one product to provide the same level of cleansing both morning and night could cause over cleansing of the skin which can lead to irritation."
SO for those of you wondering why you cant get your foundation off... this isn't designed for make up remover at all.
Hope this is helpful!!

I have dry and sensitive skin that gets irritated and red often. The redness solutions line is perfect for me. This cleanser is easy to use because you can wipe or wash it off. It is gentle but leaves the skin feeling clean and soft. It seems expensive but I don't need much and therefore one tube lasts a long time. What amazes me about Clinique products is that they always smell great while being free of perfume.
Great product for those with redness in their skin!

Perfect facial cleansing product for those with redder than normal skin!!!
Worth ever dollar
Jenny from Fontana
I've started off with the travel kit, I was very scare of trying anything new since my skin is very sensitive and I tried many products and always made my skin worse and ways I've heard good things about this product and I'm glad I gave it a tried I love it I use all the redness solution and use it day and night and sometimes in the afternoon to wash my face when I had a heavy day and I was off all the dirt of my face it's work for me
Gentle and Soothing
Jean from California
This soothing cleanser leaves my skin feeling soft and comfortable, with no tightness or irritation. It is creamy, and doesn't lather as stated in the product description, but gets the job done. On days I wear foundation I use a cleansing balm first. I use this with the entire redness solutions line and have found that over time not only has redness been diminished, but my skin is smoother and less bumpy as well.
Use it faithfully
erJ1212 from 32953
I was using it faithfully morning and night and my rosacea was so calm and tone was very even. I wanted to try a different Clinique face wash and my face started to get red again. So I'll go back to this.
Burning feeling on face
Mizu from California
This face wash cleans really well, but when I put it on my face, it feels like it is burning, so I stopped using it. I'm not sure what is in it that is causing that feeling since Clinique products are supposed to be hypoallergenic. Whatever it is, my face is red when I finish washing my face, but my face felt clean.
I got acne
Ivette from California
I always had clear skin over the years I got redness and I thought this would help but instead it gave me acne, not the best purchase I had with Clinique and I've been using it Clinique for10 years
Kshusia from Colorado
The product is creamy non-leathery, doesn't remove oil well. However, it is very useful when washing the face after acid treatment since it is soothing and non irritating
The one product I will actually rave about
Peach from DC
For years I have had dry red scaley patches on my face, my hairline, eyelids, and eyebrows were dark red. Super embarrassing and nothing worked. Went to the dermatologist, used items for months that were supposed to work in a couple of weeks to see progress and it did not work for me. Long story short my roommate said I should try it and... when I tell you its the first time I have left the house without makeup to cover the redness for 7 years.... I am not lying. One generous use of it and the redness went away for almost 72 and took care of the REALLY BAD dryness. I saw results in literally 5-7 minutes.
Liu from San Diego, Ca
Great cleanser, feels fresh, clean and vibrant after use. It's now part of daily regimen.
It worked for my skin
Taylor from Austin, Texas
Obviously everyone's skin is different. My skin is normal/dry with red blotches (mainly on my cheeks, nose and chin). I've tried a few different products but due to my sensitive skin they usually cause more redness than anything. I can honestly say after just a few days of using this routine I've noticed a HUGE difference in my skin. It's more smooth, it feels hydrated and the redness has gone down a bit. I would definitely recommend this product.

Mild soothing cleanser
Carol from New Haven, CT
My skin had allergic reaction to disposable masks - red, itchy, dry. This product was recommended to me during an online chat with Clinique. It's very mild, and gives me much less redness after cleansing comparing to other cleansers I've been using. I used it in the morning and with Redness Solutions cream daily and nightly. The redness was gone within a week! I guess I have to stick with it for a while.
Just what was needed!
Kathy from Northern California
I was on Rx medication for a few years for my rosacea but when my insurance stopped covering it had to find another solution. The rx was going to be more than $800 per month.
I purchased the full line up and it has worked wonderfully. I used to layer the makeup to hide my red flare ups but now I don't even use a foundation or concealer.
I highly recommend these products!
Made my face red!
Susie Q from Fort Worth, TX
Bought this from Belk and used it for the first time yesterday and just like the Burt Bee's Sensitive, it actually made my face red red! Looked like I had a bad sunburn and was burning. Not sure what I am allergic to or why it did it. Hopefully it worked for other people, but not me :/

Really Love this Product
Hot Toots from Niceville, FL
Used daily for face cleanser, morning, after work outs, evening....great product
Works well so far!
tattdmoma from Prosser, WA
I just recently started using Clinique, I have always wanted to try it but did not have ANY idea on what line I should be using. I was looking over reviews on what type of cleanser to try out and since I have always struggled with redness on my face, this looked like a great option. I really like that the cleaner does not suds or foam, I have found that cleansers or soaps that foam or suds up, dry my skin out way more. I also have been using this with my Clairsonic brush in the evenings after a long day and it really seems to help get the grime off. I have not been wearing make up so I cannot attest to how well it cleans the skin if you have any make up residue... but i can attest to how well it washes off just the normal grime from going for walks and working out in the yard! I never realized how gross my face was prior... So far I am enjoying this cleaner, a little goes a long way so I am sure this tube will last me a while, but I will be very willing to order it again!
Not worth it
Caitlyn from Michigan
This came highly recommended to me by my roommate as I have normal to dry skin and a lot of redness. This honestly did nothing for my skin and I felt like I was breaking out more than I was before I started using the cleanser. I didn't notice it do anything for my redness, it honestly just made my skin a little smoother.
Soothing and Calming
LandonG from Portland, OR
I use this product every night. It's the only cleanser that doesn't cause my skin to feel dried-out after washing it off, and I like the thick feel to it. I look forward to using it each night. I use this as my second cleanser.
itsnotblush from Arlington, Tx
Hands down the best cleanser for redness! the texture is a nice gel cream. It immediately calms and comforts my skin. I have eczema and rosacea and when my skin is aggravated everything burns except Clinique's redness solutions. This cleanser is the best for sensitive skin.
Calms skin, but doesn't reduce redness
tbixby from Syracuse, NY
I use this twice daily along with the other Clinique Redness Solutions products, and after using them for 5 months, I can honestly say that my redness has been reduced very slightly, but not enough for this to be a "wonder cure." I would still recommend it to anyone that has sensitive and dry skin because it's one of the only cleansers I can use that doesn't leave my skin stinging or tight afterward. I wish it was a bit cheaper.
Calming and Relaxing
Landon D. from Portland, Oregon
I don't know if it really helps with my redness, but I love the way it feels. It's the best cleaner out there! It's super calming, non-irritating, and feels fresh when you rub in on your face. Love it!
Very gentle cleanser
Rachel from Detroit, MI
This cleanser is very gentle on the skin and does not strip away oil. That being said, it is not meant to remove makeup. You need to use a makeup remover first then the cleanser. I really like it for that reason. It cleans my face, but leaves it balanced and not dry.
